HUSKY POWER PUPS HAIKU

 

Zsa Zsa

quiet strength and grace

ruling canine matriarch

queen of the dog yard

 

Denali

strong and steady as

the formidable mountain

call her Denali

 

Buzz

piercing eyes of blue

reflect a wind-swept sky

unfaltering gaze

 

Smokey

frolicking jester

consummate entertainer

with his clanging bowl

 

Iggy

coat of brilliant gold

flashing ice-blue eyes ignite

four-pawed fireball

 

Czar

master of time’s grasp

reveler in youth’s delights

tainted not by age

 

Frosty

sweet gentle giant

soulful eyes that pierce your heart

quiet and loving

 

BANDIT

fearless strong leader

leaps for treats and loves to run

he will steal your heart

 

charger

craves love and hard work

long and lean running machine

lightning on the trail

 

JAGUAR

determined Husky

small and elegant leader

focused on the trail

 

GUNNY

          Denali’s brother

ebullience packaged in a

canine cannonball

 

INDY

handsome piebald pup

leaps and vaults into your arms

a gymnast at heart

 

OREO

          sky-blue eyes that gleam

reflect a buoyant spirit

he’s one sweet cookie

 

BLACKIE

          proud of his good looks

he’s a prancing, dancing dog

he loves all the girls

 

Colt

light as a feather

high-spirited team leader

he flies down the trail

 

Thunder

petite and sweet pup

she relishes attention

loves her belly rubs

small in stature yet

howler extra ordinaire

crooner of dog tunes

 

Mickey

small but very strong

looks can be so deceptive

proven powerhouse

howls for attention

a sled dog and lap dog too

she loves this dual life
