Old Hound Haiku

 

Old Hound Haiku

Dirt road pick-up truck

Old hound mutt riding shotgun 

through the countryside 

Windows down, nose out

Muzzlecheeks flapping in breeze

Living his best life 

He was abandoned

Rescued from the county dump

Taken in and fed

A recycled life – 

Dewormed, flea dipped, unticked and 

proudly named Buckshot

He feels his worth now

Chases critters, patrols home,

Eats the table scraps

All he needed was

someone to care about him

Oh, the difference!
