Daily Prompt: Snow definition – a dog’s perspective


When a familiar landscape becomes a foreign field

Populated with overlarge, cold, white hominoids

Of terrifying proportions;  when missiles

Equally white, fly through the air – war of the juveniles

Descending slopes on their terrible toboggans

Squealing war cries of joy, fear and warning;

Alien world of crusty icing sugaredness

Powdery beneath the paws and scents and trails

Vanished beneath  a cloak of icy invisibility.

Beautiful covering coming silently from the sky

Like white stars and hexagonal doilies.

Lickable and likeable in tongue meltingness.

A Little bit of fluff



A little bit of fluff makes

You want me

Pretties up my head like

A girl’s curls.

Yet I am a dog through and through

And my real appeal is

In what I can do.

Take me hunting

And I will retrieve

Find me a female

And she will receive.

But this little bit of fluff

On my head

Shows my breeding

Off to a tee.


This is a working dog owned by a local man who uses him in his land management and who also offers him for breeding. He has a wonderful temperament and is very obedient – a hit with all the clients.
