10 Haiku Poems Written by Dogs

Think dogs don't have deep thoughts? Think again. Here are 10 poems penned by pooches.


You know that thoughtful look dogs get as they’re settling in for some shut-eye, their eyelids slowly dropping into doggy dreamland? Think they’re remembering that sweet mystery smell in the grass from earlier in the day? Perhaps they’re recounting the pre-dinner belly rub that sent them into leg kicks that rivaled the Rockettes’ Radio City Christmas Spectacular? Could it be they’re being lulled by the sound of your singing the wrong lyrics (again) to some obscure disco song while washing dishes? No, no, and no. They’re mentally writing dog haiku. Of course.

Here are 10 haiku poems by dogs:


My bark, sharp and fierce

Trying to protect you from

The FedEx driver


For you I’ll create

Artistic works of poo, since

You save them in bags


Swallowed by regret

For I forgot to smell the

Third bush on the left


Your breath intrigues me

And I am fairly certain

You had ribs for lunch


Apologies, but

How could I have known that was

Your cheesy sandwich?


Puddled on the floor

A symbol of excitement

You’ve come to visit


Crestfallen, for my

Nose cannot fit more deeply

Inside your slip-on


But I thought I heard

You say you didn’t want that

Folder of receipts


You say the leash word

And I’m no longer obsessed

With sniffing cat butt


Just when you thought I

Could not sleep closer to you

You were wrong again


Does your dog write haiku? I think he does! Go ahead, give us a verse or two in the comments. Remember haiku poetry uses only seventeen syllables. Don’t be shy!

  1. Here are couple of Dog Haikus

    I see camera
    I walk towards you and turn,
    Sit down, show my back

    Tricks I do for you,
    I shake, roll over, leave it,
    Can I have treat now

    Please let me near the
    Stinky skunk for it smell good–
    I’m pulled far away

    I nudge you it’s time
    To take me outside for walk
    But you don’t hurry

    You complain outside
    That it’s cold and hurry walk
    I slow down our walk
