Friday Haiku: Puppy Sitter

Put pups in a swing

It’s the only place where they

Stay out of trouble.

Sam, 5 month old Australian Shepherd, says it’s also a rocket ship, a race car and an airplane, Mallory K.!



  1. Dogs on swings rock! Or something. 😛

  2. Great find! *applauds wildly*

  3. Teresa, I saw that the other day but couldn’t figure out how to post it here (I am severely technologically challenged).

    Dogs on Swings might be the best thing ever!!!

  4. Doggie on a swing
    Pup you gotta love your swing
    Doggie on a swing

  5. 260Oakley says:

    So it floats your boat
    But what do I get from this
    A pain in the tail

  6. Wanna swing with me?
    I am a wild and crazy

  7. That IS the best ever!!

  8. This is so funny!
    An appropriate soundtrack
    Would be Spanish Flea

  9. Pupster feels the same
    Just a dif-rent point of view
    Tangled up in blue

  10. Folding up a pup
    Into a swing for babies
    Ends in bucket butt

  11. Sam waits patiently
    (As he stares at his big paws)
    For his next growth spurt

  12. skippymom says:

    I can’t believe you would post this! What kind of people force their dogs to ride in swings? Those dogs are obviously not enjoying it! You can see that they are terrified!

  13. you are such a trouble maker. 🙂

  14. I love eyebrow dots
    still waiting for cuteness rule
    cute eyebrow dot pup!

  15. hmstracylee says:

    eyebrow dots – without
    a doubt, the best invention
    in all history

  16. Summer reflection
    Petit puppy swings slowly
    Happiness for all

  17. skippymom says:


  18. I see what you did there. 🙂

  19. Darn nabbit I’ve been sent to the lougne again! What did I do wrong now??

  20. hmstracylee says:

    but can he bend down
    to tie the lace of my shoe?
    (or would he just chew?)

  21. skippymom says:

    I commented on
    yours but mine has disappeared
    oh well, whatever

  22. Mary (the first) says:

    Soon this pup will be
    Too big for the swing. Then what?
    No fun? Or frisbees?

  23. Little “burglar” at 0:26 has the best markings ever!

  24. Copperbat says:

    The breeze on my face!
    Rewind. The breeze on my face!
    Less pix, more pushing!

  25. Eyebrow dots ftw.

  26. Long suffering dog;
    Regards his human, perplexed;
    Serenity now.

  27. He looks like “Bandit” from the old Jonny Quest cartoon, doesn’t he?

  28. Kari Callin says:

    “What the heck do you MEAN if I need to swing my legs back and forth to get this thing to go?! Are you KIDDING ME with that?!

  29. hmstracylee says:

    oops, ceej – I didn’t see your post when I posted mine! looks like we are of one mind in re eyebrow dots

  30. Yes, that silly mod machine had me for a while…

  36. Robin Kiesel says:

    It’s only my second try at making a haiku. I wasn’t sure I did it correctly. 🙂

  44. I know not a Haiku but it made me think if this totally fun song!

    John Anderson
    We were Swingin

    There’s a little girl, in our neighborhood
    Her name is Charlotte Johnson and she’s really lookin good
    I had to go and see her, so I called her on the phone
    I walked over to her house, and this was goin’ on

    Her brother was on the sofa, eatin’ chocolate pie
    Her moma was in the kitchen cuttin’ chicken up to fry
    Her daddy was in the back yard rollin up a garden hose
    I was on the porch with Charlotte feelin’ love down to my toes

    And we were swingin’ (swinging)
    Yes we were swingin’ (swinging)
    Little Charlotte she’s as pretty as the angels when they sing
    I can’t believe I’m out here on the front porch swing
    Just a swingin’ (swingin) Just a swingin’ (swingin)

    Now Charlotte she’s a darlin she’s the apple of my eye
    When I’m on the swing with her it makes me almost high
    Now Charlotte is my lover and she has been since the spring
    I can’t believe it started on her front porch in the swing

  45. Blue Footed Booby says:

    swing with four leg holes
    but none of them occupied
    butt is all you need

  46. ThirdShift says:

    True story, I took my little beagle (before the greyhound) onto a porch swing, the old fashion kind, you know, on a porch, that rocked very gently. I swung, and she swung, we all swung, and I though a good time was had by all, until I took her off the swing and she went bluerphwafflebleurph. Didn’t know a dog of that size had that much stuffing. Maybe some dogs don’t like swings. Ya know? Like some dogs get car sick.

  47. She remembers everything.

  48. “bluerphwafflebleurph” thank you for the laugh!

  49. Starfish says:

    Pup in a bucket
    Sez “Onoez, the swing stopped! Halp?”
    I’ll give him a push.

  50. hmstracylee says:

    it appears so!
    only, Meg hasn’t yet caught on that we NEED a RoC for them

  51. hmstracylee says:

    ^ made me snortlaff

    also, can you imagine trying to stuff a greyhound in a swing?! hilarity would surely ensue. followed shortly by a major dose of stinkeye.

  52. victoreia says:

    *applauds wildly*

  53. victoreia says:

    You said “p*ppy”! That’s a Mod lounge password, remember?

  54. “bluerphwafflebleurph” made me laugh so hard i nearly bluerphwafflebleurph’d, myself.

  55. Robin Kiesel says:

    I can’t memember the secret passwords! Is there a list?

  56. Robin Kiesel says:

    I LOVE this song!

  57. victoreia says:

    *breaks out the crayon sharpener for Fird*

  67. there once was a pup in a swing
