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. :P

  2. That video is full of win!

  3. Great find! *applauds wildly*

  4. 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!!!

  5. That IS the best ever!!

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

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

  8. Robin Kiesel says:

    OMG!! How did you remember that!

  9. She remembers everything.

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

  11. wannadance says:

    but that’s the bunny hop
    no matter where
    your feet dance..

  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. Fird Birfle says:

    *begins scrawling out a Protest Sign, with crayons*

  14. victoreia says:

    *breaks out the crayon sharpener for Fird*

  15. Fird Birfle says:

  17. skippymom says:

    I prefer “rabble-rouser”.


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

  20. 260Oakley says:

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

  21. victoreia says:

    *applauds wildly*

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

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

  24. hmstracylee says:

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

  25. :)

  26. :)

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

  28. I see what you did there. :)

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

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

  31. 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

  32. Mary (the first) says:

    Isn’t everyone in love with eyebrow dots?

  33. hmstracylee says:

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

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

  35. hmstracylee says:

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

    In the immortal, profound words of Monsieur Fats Waller:

    “One never knows, does one???” ;)

  51. Mary (the first) says:

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

  52. Copperbat says:

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

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

  54. Insanity later :-)

  55. 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?!

  56. Robin Kiesel says:

    Puppy in a pot
    Nose and tosies everywhere
    flapping tail and ears

  57. Claps wildly!

  58. 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

  59. Robin Kiesel says:

    I LOVE this song!

  60. Blue Footed Booby says:

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

  61. 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.

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

  63. 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.

  64. “bluerphwafflebleurph” thank you for the laugh!

  65. Starfish says:

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

  66. I’m like Gepetto:
    Just a puppeh on a swing
    Is the boss of me

  67. Patricia says:

    Very sweet face!

  68. there once was a pup in a swing
    who wrote a haiku he could sing
    o won’t someone push
    my furry lil toosh? my schnozz
    will enjoy the breeze.

    (the world’s first limericku, i believe)

  69. Fird Birfle says:

    *thoroughly enjoyed; esp the leetle bell at its conclusion* :)

  70. ashagato says:
