    "Dog Whisperer" Marsh showcases four-legged poetic talent

    As an avid reader and writer of haiku, I was pleasantly surprised to find an volume of haiku written entirely by dogs. Steve D. Marsh does an excellent job of translating his dogs, Zac and E.D. as they express modern dog concerns like toughness, sex appeal and poop. <BR/><BR/>Marsh and Co. do not stray from controversy. Included are haiku about Osama bin Laden, mutt lineage and sleeping on the couch when the master's not around. Plus, the evolution of the pug as a combination of a greyhound at full speed meeting a shovel is the priceless wit dogs in the literary community just don't write anymore. <BR/><BR/>This is an excellent collection of American haiku for canines and humans alike. An ideal gift for lovers of poetry, dogs, laughter and literature, "Dog-Ku" will stay with you for a while -- not unlike a German shepherd does the ice cream truck.
