Haiku: Wood Anemone

two whippets in rain coats on a forest trail
a blue and white whippet in a raincoat sniffing the grass

wood anemone
a blue and white dog tiptoes
through the green grass

  1. Nice haiku and pretty wood anemone. πŸ™‚ I keep noticing your dogs’ jackets in these photos. Are they waterproof? I take care of dogs (mostly smaller ones) in my area, and I will put on jackets, shirts or even p.j.s if the owner provides them, but I haven’t seen anything like these.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Susan 🌺 These raincoats are waterproof and especially made for whippets and greyhounds by Blizzard Coats. They do a fleece-lined version as well for the colder days. Their own website has been down for a while and Forever Hounds Rescue normally sells them too πŸ’œ

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Annabelle, they really look like stars! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’« If you’re still interested in adopting a whippet, Dogs Trust Bridgend (Wales) have an 8-year old Bedlington Whippet and she’s looking for a home where she can be the only dog πŸ’œ xxx
