Haiku: Adventure

Here's a haiku inspired by One Deep Breath's prompt of adventure.

The first image that came to mind was that of my Labradors and their exuberance at the daily walk. For we humans, it's a chore; for them, it's a daily adventure.

Tugging at the leash
Nostrils flaring, bent to ground
Walk as adventure

Having two pups of my own, I totally get how what begins as a simple walk can turn into a madcap adventure! I really dig this haiku!

You capture my lab perfectly! I would love to be able to look at life, as he does, each day...what a difference that would make:)

Wonderful!

Dogs need an adventure too. Nicely captured. Keep up the good work.
