Finders Keepers

On Monday, Sharon and I went to the frisbee park, near Griggs Reservoir. It's one of my favorite places to go. One time, I chased a duck into the river! Sharon was all impressed because she though that I was afraid of the water. Silly, I'm not afraid! I just need the proper motivation to get all wet and bothered. Ducks are good motivation.

Monday was another good visit. I found a really large turtle in the trees by the water. I was so proud to show it to Sharon. But she told me it was dead. I didn't see any problems with that. But Sharon made me walk away from it! Man, she doesn't know what's good! But no worries; I then found a really big fish bone. Still, I couldn't keep this one either.

Finding these treasures reminds me of the other things I've found on my adventures with Dave and Sharon. Since Sharon was so impressed with my poetry skills from last night, I decided to share my stories in hiaku. So, here are tales of my hunting prowess and other encounters with wildlife:

Dead turtle in woods
Ran head held high with my prize
Must "drop it", so sad ...

Bare fish bone on bank
Reconciliation prize
Still can't have, why not?

Warm deer guts I found
Early Christmas Eve presents
Green poop for Sharon

Buddy, Bella, Me
Three fast strong weimaraners
Groundhog stood no chance!

My arch-nemesis
This squirrel no match for me
Good huntress I am!

Dark grey mouse at night
Lightening speed to kill and eat
Shh! Sharon knows not!

Splish splash in water
See Sharon, I swim so well!
Only to chase ducks

Buzz buzz, bees are bad!
They sting! Big welts! Hurt alot!
Annie does not like!!!

Look, Annie come here!
Sniff, sniff; it's a frog; paw, paw
Oh no, stopped moving!

Just like ancestors
I chase deer far and away
Too fast! I give up ...


  1. Frisbee park? Maybe we can meet sometime, I love playing frisbee. :)

  2. I don't play with frisbees that much, only when I mistake them for birds. Still, it's a great place to go! Lots of things to sniff! Sharon may take me there next week, on Monday or Thursday.
