Pet Haiku

Some entries from the Bay Area Pets First Annual Pet Haiku Contest:

Early morning sun
Just the tip of the dog's tail
Above the seagrass.
-Marianna Monaco

Pop quiz for my cat
"Name in Chinese history?"
Cat blinks once, says "Mao!"

Neighbor dog bit ear
Human makes me wear conehead
Not sure whom to hate.

Please Forgive Me
Dad, I am sorry
I ate your pricey headphones
They looked like tacos.

I am not lazy
Napping conserves energy
Wait 'til 2 a.m.

Those museum cats from
the ancient Chinese paintings
have nothing on you.
-Kate Hilsenbeck

Nose smudge on the glass
I never will erase it
My collie's last mark.
