Link with 874: Dog.

[The neighbour's dogs don't need fresh snow as an excuse to tear around the yard. But when it comes they seem to have extra excitement and enthusiasm and powered white stuff flies in all directions.]

my "late" dog loved the snow. He was this huge 125 lb snow plow... and he'd put his nose down in it and just push through it and leave a big swath.

Then run to the house with frozen slobber hanging down the sides of his mouth.

Fresh snow does make us yearn to chase each other. I don't blame the dogs.

Makes me remember my little dog Piko, years back in winter...

Masago said...

Borut: Piko, eh? Cool name.

Etymology: New Latin, from Greek pan- + daimOn evil spirit -- more at DEMON
1 : the capital of Hell in Milton's Paradise Lost
(Webster!) - You didn't meant?

The dogs like the new element? Which one is the leader? Or the owner of the snow?

Anyway, your haiku doesn't need any
explainings, but I happened to look that word pandemonium! I think I have read Milton's Paradise Lost!
