Today is the fourth week of Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and our prompt is the letter D.



Mom and Dad are on an overnight jaunt, so our poem and post are a bit off track. After a filet, a bottle of Malbec and some ridiculously decadent, dark-chocolate torte, our petrecary’s brain is muddled and befuddled.

The best she could accomplish is this pathetic haiku.
Tired of our toys.
Waiting for our BlogPaw’s swag.
Delayed…train derailed.


Our “D” is represented in both delayed and derailed. Add to that disappointment, and we think we have the bases covered.

The two boxes of goodies our parental units shipped home from the BlogPaws Conference via UPS were scheduled to arrive Tuesday, the 5th. The arrival is now scheduled for today. Dad checked and the boxes are in Virginia, so we have our paws crossed that we’ll be burrowing through the booty by day’s end.


Calista Jo pouts aout delayed swag,

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

We could have used that haiku last year, because our swag box was delayed for weeks. We were lucky and ours arrived the other day.

Oh my! Love your haiku for “D” day on my bloggie! How exciting that you’re expecting a delivery of SWAG today – – – no doubt you’ll be in heaven exploring the fabulous delights contained therein! Glad your Mom and Dad had a little getaway – humans need to do that from time to time – recharges their batteries!

Love, Sammy

I was lucky my human could fit everything into the big suitcase she brought… although JUST barely! Of course that does not mean she has unpacked and organized ANY of it!
