the family dog –
she’s a little fat hippy
from too much love dude
My apologies to Matsu Basho – hahahaha – I’m bashing his famous haiku:
The she cat –
From love and barley.

I think your version is bound to become a classic…well certainly with us dog lovers. :-0
hahaha maybe a hippy classic Charles from dog lovers united 😀
A good bash at Basho!
he won’t mind – been dead quite a while 😉
Yes… but does ‘barley’ refer to barley as in malted barley as in single malt as it likker?
I think it’s just the regular barley from a field – feeding cats and dogs on rice and barley, apparently was (and maybe still is) common in Japan – there is probably a whole thesis written on that haiku Stafford 😉 – if it was the alcoholic type I agree it would make the cat thin 😉
PS Nice photo!
I love it 🙂 Lots of love can make a dog a little portly, don’t you think? (Or, as my father once said: “she’s not fat; her head’s just a bit small for her body….”)
hahahaha that’s a classic Kate 🙂 definitely love can make a dog fat – haha – very hard not to give a loved dog the odd titbit #guilty
I love it!
thanks Juliet 😀
Yours is far superior to Basho’s
bwhahahaha you can have a really big virtual chocolate Easter bunny for that bb 🙂
