5. Contest end on December 17 at 6:00 p.m.
6. Look below for the Scottie photo for your Haiku
7. You can enter as many times as you want, but you only get one name in the hat.
8. I will post the winner in a future blog and you must contact me in three days or it goes to second pick.
9. Anyone can enter but North America folks names will be drawn, due to postage rates.
10. If you win, you should try to continue this contest by having a contest of your own.





Prize: "Sheepdogs At Work by Tony Iley. This is an original 1978, by Dalesman Books, Clapham, Yorks.
The book is from my private library collection. It is an out of print, hard to find book. I can ship to North America. If you are from the outside of North America, you can enter your Haiku but shipping is to prohibitive for me to ship outside of North America. North America is US and Canada.

Some dogs look pretty
Border Collie works his sheep
Same from ages past

Come bye, and away,
Working Scotties in the morning,
That'll do, good dog.

Look, smug scotty ewe

You be a pie soon.

gibbous golden shine
blackness and a curving horn

Scottie, oh Scottie,
why pink ribbon on your head?
Annoyance abounds.

Scottie never meant
to become laughing stock of
DeltaBluez Haiku.

Would rather be held
in place by DeltaBluez Tess
than playing dress up.

lol plenty
this can not be the end y'all
There's too much to say

I couldn't resist
and sorrow of all sorrows
I could continue

Take a bow and leave.
My Haiku becomes silly.
Point taken and more.

Paws twitch, run in sleep
Little yips escape your lips
Dream my heart dog, dream

All I want is sleep
Not a border collie creep
The job is over

Wool plays in the breeze
It flirts beyond all the trees
Black face so divine

seek and sixx said...

Rugged, rough and wild
Delightful, and full of style
The bow on my head

seek and sixx said...

Scottie you are cute
You have a red bow to boot
What pretty green eyes

You can call me Grinch
I feel silly with this bow
Put it on the dog
