Title: Downward Dog: Very Serious Haiku From A Very Serious Dog
Author: Samm Hodges, Phinheas Hodges
Publisher: Animal Media Group
Release Date: June 6, 2017
This book is full of haiku poems by a dog. Yes, haiku poems from the perspective of a dog!
If you know me, you know I love dogs, especially my own bichon poodle, Skippy. These poems are hilarious! I can picture these poems coming from my dog.
My favourite one is about the “surprise” after “the ride in the car” which ended with being neutered. I laughed out loud at that one! Some of the other poems were about cuddling up with Netflix and a dilemma about his leash: friend or foe?
There are also pictures that go along with many of the poems. They’re just simple drawings, that presumably have been drawn by the dog.
I really like this book! It’s super short but it’s so funny! These haikus come from the dog from the new ABC show, Downward Dog. Check it out Wednesday nights!
