A Dog Winter Haiku

A wet nose cuddle-
Warding from a chill winter:
Teeth naw at an itch


The Backscratcher For An Old Dog

One so old
up to live another day.
Life has many little wonders

Amongst all here today.
A metal back rubber
to remove flaking skin

itchy yet again.
With the grace of a klutz,
feet dance as a fix

is received. Now, if only
this thing called age
didn’t need the scratching.
