A Dog’s Summer Vacation
I love vacation because I get to spend more time with my mom and dad. Even if a lot of that time is riding in the back seat of the car. Eventually we get out and I get to hang out while they eat their picnic lunch and share pieces of pastrami and chicken with me. Yum! Then we head off on a trail. I’ve never been on such a long hike before, at least not that I can remember. And it’s hot out! I keep trying to sneak into a cool ravine, but they pull on my leash and say, “Stay on the trail, silly dog.” I see a chipmunk run across the trail ahead and I want to chase it, but that darn leash stops me. I do hope we get to the end of this trail soon. This is a long hike for an old dog like me. I need a drink and a nap. Oh, but first a dip in the cool lake.

Fun, tiring outing
I’m finally getting around to posting for Haibun Monday at dVerse Poets Pub, where Toni is calling for us to write about the dog days of summer.
I like the voice of the dog, smiles! Indeed it is a long walk for the old dog in the summer! Cute picture too.
What a sweet little dog. Adorable!
Very cute take on Dog Days – Roman you’re such a talent! Love it 🙂
A delightful haibun on dog’s day of summer… give Roman an extra pat!
Oh Roman, you did such a fine job on this haibun. I know your mom appreciates getting a break from having to write. The hike though long, sounds like fun, especially the pastrami and chicken. Welcome to dVerse and I hope you get to write for us again.
I pass along the compliment with a pat on the head. 🙂
