Today we celebrate in beagle haiku the above-and-beyond-the-call-of-canine-duty efforts of Katie the Beagle on behalf of Editorial Code & Data Inc. Katie has loyally been hard at work, lying on the guest bed and staring adoringly at Monique every day, all day -- often late into the night -- as Monique has worked like a madwoman for the last six months to get Market Share Reporter: Trends Over Time out the door and off to press on time.
Katie's contributions towards this project were so large and substantial that they just couldn't be captured in a single seventeen-syllable haiku. Thus we at the Patio Boat present a double-haiku poem to commemorate her contributions:
The Loyal Beagle Shares the Work
Katie the Beagle
Wants to chase rabbits. But she
Watches Monique type.
The walk comes at two
In the afternoon. Joy! Joy!
Then back to work.
As for Monique's work on this project, it would take a Norse saga twice the size of the Edda to capture all that has been accomplished and overcome. If you see her anytime soon, please congratulate her on getting this fabulous book off to press on time and surviving the experience.
I shall simply say for now, "Well done! And welcome back!"
