    We are not for dogs
    Though we sound like squeaky toys
    We’re from Otter Space

  2. So cute and squeaky
    We otter be in pictures
    Please pay us in fish

  3. Dear Santa, For Christmas next year, please give to me a herd of baby otters!

  4. I’m fighting through the bouncing adorableness to break out my literature hat. This has been bugging me for a while. It’s called a “Friday Haiku,” but is it really a senryu? ‘Tis true that “Friday Senryu” would cause many to baroo. Here’s the thing, though: senryu, defined very loosely, are like haiku, but humorous, and let’s face it, bouncing baby otters are practically the video link used in’s definition of humorous! (There’s a lot of room for additional distinction between haikus and senryus, but let’s not go all crazy-pants.)

  5. (adds “otter wrangler” to list of Ideal Jobs.)

  6. This is one of your best. And you’ve set a pretty darned high standard thus far. Well done. (claps slowly but with great conviction.)

  7. The squeeks! The peeps! The bounciness! *thud*

  8. Just watched this video
    My dogs’ heads whipped around
    Where’s the squeaky toy??????

  9. I cheated on that first line….

  10. Okay this is simply too much!!
