Friday Haiku: Pupsicle

Puppy’s first ice cream

Loves yummy taste at first lick

Thirty more flavors

Ceri’s first taste of ice cream, by Yvette N., who tells us the Missoula Big Dipper gives a free cone with purchase! Good to know!



  1. eyebrow dots and tounge!
    no chocolate pretty please!
    cute fluffy puppeh!

  2. Cute puppers renders me unable to haiku. Pink muzzlepouche!!!!!!

  3. ahhhh you’re one syllable away from one!

    cute puppers renders
    me unable to haiku
    aww, pink muzzlepouche!

  4. eyebrow dots really
    should be a rule of cuteness.
    she has lovely ones!

  5. I’m on my way to lead a “Non-Violent Crisis Intervention” course in my workplace. Do you think I should suggest that we hand out ice cream cones and puppeh dogs when it appears someone in the middle of a crisis needs a non-violent-type of intervention?

  6. Tessamo says:

    I vote we hand a cone and puppeh to all world leaders, too. 🙂

  7. 260Oakley says:

    Ice cream tastes better
    When you lick it off your nose
    (I can do that, peeps!)

  8. Holy smokes, you’re right.

    See what Teh Cute does to brains?

    Rendered dumb, again.

  9. There’s no waffling here
    I loves me the ice cream cone
    More sprinkles next time

  10. Proove it! 😆

  11. 260Oakley says:

    I’ll ask my cats to take a picture. 😉

  12. Madame X says:

    Yes! Ice cream cones and puppehs. Or bunnehs. Unless the intervenee has low self-esteem, in which case bunniferous disapproval may exacerbate the condition…

    Kittehs are also a good alternative.

  13. Today’s Friday Haiku is in honor of the birthday of Kobayashi Issa, or known simply as Issa, one of the most famous haiku poets! If he was still alive he would be 249 years old today, June 15.
    I like this one:

    A world of trials,
    and if the cherry blossoms,
    it simply blossoms

  14. andi in NC says:

    I always learn something interesting here – thanks for the historical tidbit!

  15. Mary (the first) says:

    As long as they won’t be violent to the puppeh, sure!

  16. andi in NC says:

    puppeh licks gently
    my heart melts like the ice cream
    what makes her eyes sad?

  17. Mary (the first) says:

    Happiness is not
    a warm puppy, but instead
    Pup and ice cream cone.

  18. Mary (the first) says:

    mod lounge, for that?? I sure hope there are some warm muffins in here. (Pups also welcome!)

  19. skippymom says:

    This here is your brain
    This here is your brain on cute
    Any questions now?

  20. I think there is all different kinds of ice cream in the fridge!( Opens door, looks in) I was right! Here have a bowl of “Peaches and Cream”. Its delish.

  21. Sunny doggone day.
    Ice cream Slurping, Oh so good.
    Happy Puppeh Dog.

    (Closes eyes, crosses fingers, hopes poem is not snagged in the Mod Machine, Presses post comment)

  22. OMG It worked… Whew. Must remember to use Puppeh instead of the other P word.

  23. I made sure to use puppeh too, but mine got snagged. [pouts]

  24. ROFL Skippy Mom you are the awesome!

  25. and baby chicks, and ducklings, they are warm and floofy and calming. and maybe we should add those cute little munkeys too, and baby piglets, and well you know… baby bears, and baby tigers, and well pretty much any baby animal would work wouldn’t it 🙂

  26. YOu are here because you used teh word P-ppy. You must use Puppeh!

  27. YES !!! That’s a perfect response Pennefeather !

  28. Yea for Missoula’s Big Dipper ice cream! And yes, my doggehs love their free ‘cream when we go too.

  29. The Dairy Queen in my neighborhood gives free “pup cups” (vanilla ice cream in a bowl) to all doggies who visit (outside or in the drive-through, not inside). My only “complaint” is that my dogs (100 & 180 lbs.) get the same-size pup cups as the chihuahuas and other small dogs. However, they love every bit of it!

  30. Puppeh licks gently
    Ice cream cools his hot tummy
    great end to good day!

  31. A dog and his boy
    play in the summer sunshine.
    and share a sweet treat

  32. I love Haikus! LOL!

  33. skippymom says:

    This is totally unfair! They should definitely give bigger cones to the big dogs!
    *getting out poster board and paints to make protest sign*

  34. Susie-Qute says:

    Sweet little puppeh / cannot share his cold ice cream/ for it will melt away

  35. Susie-Qute says:

    the last line should be”…for twill melt away.”

  36. kiragirl says:

    beginning crisis mode in 3…2…1

  37. kiragirl says:

    can ya superpuppesize it?

  38. kiragirl says:

    “I eats my ice cream
    sideways, then from the bottom,
    not to miss one drop.”

  39. Susie-Qute says:

    Good one! I need practice with puppeh haiku.

  40. SlaveToCat says:

    Puppy’s First Ice Cream
    No Lactose Intolerance
    Pup Pines for Sprinkles

  41. Pop-eye puppeh sez:
    ‘Whew! When you said, ‘Let’s get cones !,’
    I thought of the vet.’

  42. kiragirl says:


  43. victoreia says:


  44. this cavalier king charles spaniel is the first out of many that i have seen that does look EXACTLY like mine! i showed my mum the picture and she thought it was too! awww adorable!!

  45. Batmamma says:

    It’s very cute, but I hope not done often. My elderly grandmother had a little black Havanese named Spooky who died of diabetes because of sweet treats like this. My grandmother adored Spooky. If we love our cute friends, let’s not love them to death with foods that do not belong in their diet.

  46. Mary (the first) says:

    but . .but . I was alluding to something else with p*ppy ..

  47. but is happy with plain cones.

  48. Fird Birfle says:

    @ RPB: well, DUH …. 🙂

    (Meant to be a positive affirmation, in a mischevious way…)

  49. Fird Birfle says:

    While this does not include a young doggie, a haiku, *NOR* even an
    ice-cream cone….it does still bear some similarity to this post.

    *tunes in old black & white analog television*

  50. 6rabbits says:

    Srsly! How could anyone advocate aggression with a fluffy bit-‘o-cuteness in their hands?! Perhaps we need to send a contingent to our senators and representatives…hmm? It could only improve things!
    [Oh…my sister is pointing out that some people have allergies, so we need a plan B]

  51. 6rabbits says:

    Okay…I’m dense. Why does “p*ppy” trip the trap door in the mod lounge?

  52. lds7yrs says:

    Sloths. yep.

  53. dubyah1 says:

    Owl, how many licks?
    “One, too-hoo, three.” Crunch. “Three.” The
    World may never know.

  54. dubyah1 says:

    Ditto-thanks for the history lesson!
    So, if one writes a haiku [an haiku?] about a no-win situation for a certain CO favourite, would that be:

    Clean floor, too-small box:
    A Kobayashi Maru
    Manoeuvre oeuvre

  55. ashagato says:

    melted chocolate
    eyes sweet and wet as ice cream
    ‘cept puppeh’s not cold

  56. yvettemn says:

    D’aw – people always ask me “is that really a cavie?” so I’m glad to know there are other cavs out there who look like Ceri 🙂

  57. Alice Shortcake says:

    Maru’s experiments with the Slim Box crack me up every time!

  58. skippymom wins!
    That should be the official haiku of CO!

  59. Pups loves vanilla!
    But would rather have his fave..
    Sqwerl flavored ice cream

  60. Yes please put us out of our misery!

  61. Fird Birfle says:


    Who’d a thunk that the dialogue in it fits into a haiku format?

    Not ME, by golly!

    Nicely figgered-out. I’m deeply impressed.

  62. Fird Birfle says:

    I second Saffron’s motion!

  63. skippymom says:

    Aw shucks, you guys. *blushing*

  64. Aww, no fellow Star Trek geeks? Ratty rats.

  65. Beautiful! Your haiku feels like a warm, joyful summer day 🙂

  66. wannadance says:

    so can my sister. and she has naturally platinum blond hair. dang…

    btw: i hate seminars. they and laundromat dryers bring out the worst in my personality. no telling what i’ll say.

    sad that we need a seminar like that..

  67. skippymom says:

    wannadance, I love you because most of the time I can’t figure out what you are talking about.

  68. wannadance says:

    maru creates unseemly laffing and subsequent wheezing in me. i love to watch him think and calculate.

    hoarder opposite
    no hairballs in sight.

    (not haiku ah thank. jes’ fervant)

  69. wannadance says:

    neither can anyone else.

  70. skippymom says:

    but the question is, can you?

  71. wannadance says:

    licks it, yuuuuuuum
    dips cheek dar in (darin) (in dar)
    save it for later..

  72. Yes massive geek here *waves* I got it and it was ace 🙂

  73. Tessamo says:

    Golf clap for dubyah1. Watching Star Trek now…Maru knows the pain of a no-win box!

  74. 6rabbits says:

    “A Kobayashi Maru” *bowing to the cleverness* 😆

  75. Whew! Thanks, fellow Trekkies, I should have trusted in the Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations that is CO.
