Who me?

My chewed up new shoes

Savannah looks innocent

"I didn't do it, Mom!"


A New Day

Awakened to noise

a paw bangs on the crate door

the day has begun


Life in Our House

Brody come, good boy

Mia come, Mia, Mia?

Oh how we love it


Our Cairn Terriers

Playful and happy,

Best little pals in the world.

Our Cairn terriers.


The Aloof Cairn

The stooge ball is thrown

Look at that Lab run and fetch

I, with pride, refuse



The prey hides below.

Come out, Come out, my sweet toy!

Earthdog has your scent!



Playtime is over

Cosmo lays on cold cement

Dreaming biscuit dreams


Farm Boy

Cosmo looks back once

Then into the corn so high

the chase has begun


Old dog

Losing sight, hearing

Forget where I am going

Still cute as ever


In the Eyes of a Cairn...

Squirrels in my back yard

Bark, Bark. Up the tree they run.

Rats! They win again!


This is a poll for choosing a finalist in the Cairn Haiku contest. There are five polls - you may vote once in each of the five polls. The top vote-getter in each individual poll will be placed in a final poll to determine the overall favorite Cairn haiku. This poll will close at 8:00 PM server time (Pacific Daylight Savings Time) on Sunday, August 8.

Note to contributors - while I tried to be reasonably generous in pronouncing words in order to get syllable counts into line, poems that could not be coaxed into 5-7-5 format are not included. While 5-7-5 is not the only format acceptable for haikus, it was the format specified for this contest. All submissions were lovely and worthy of re-reading and I thank everyone who contributed to this fun project in any way.
