Flower Power!

Lacie here!

Last weekend, Mumsie and Daddy went to the Flower Show at the conservatory in Pittsburgh. Silly blogger seems to have loaded this pic twice, but it's pretty so we didn't think you'd mind. Mumsie wouldn't let us go. GRRRRR. But she said she'd name flowers after us. All of these bootiful flowers to choose from for my special one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is Lacie Flower. It's a cactus. It's not a flower and it's got nasty prickly things all over it. Mumsie said you wouldn't need an explanation. I'm offended.

These crazy yellow tulips are Scruffy Tulips. Scruffy's fur looks JUST like these when he gets up in the morning!

This is Babystan Flower. Look at the size of it's mouth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're lying here thinkin' it might be a good idea to go and dig up some more of Mumsie's bulbs that are JUST startin' to come through the mulch!!! Oh...and I'm sure you girls are noticing I'm a little more blond than usual. I was readin' a gossip magazine and left my highlights in too long while I sat under the dryer. Oopsie!

Here's Scruffy and I in a down stay. I wouldn't let Stan in the pic, cuz I'm mad at him.
Mumsie was outside the other night playing fetch with Scruff, when she noticed Stan zoomin' cross the yard. Now that in itself is not unusual, but the fact HE HAD ME IN HIS HUGE DALE MOUTH was a really odd site. Mumsie went tearin' after him screamin' her head off, but he carried me for about 50 feet....he dropped me and I whipped around and bit him. Felt good.
Mumsie was tryin' not to laugh and yell at him at the same time. Smart Dale. He dropped in a big mud puddle in the yard and started to roach. He was one muddy mess.
I'm thinkin' I may need therapy livin' with these boyz. No wonder I'm prickly like a cactus!

Hey! Are those stoopid flowery pics from Phipps? Our Uncle Kevin got married at that place & WE WE'RE INVITED!

Mom is going to the Dog show on Sunday morning but we're not invited! How rude. If your Mumsie is going then, let our Mom know & maybe they can walk around & buy us treats!! Wahoooo! Mom is going at the DoG awful hour of 8:30 am! We'll be at home sleeping...

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi Lacie...
Thank dogness you are ok. You better watch that babyStan!!!

So about the catus...I think Mumsie forgot to mention they have BOOTIFUL flowers too!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Gus said...

Lacie: The cactus are just bloomin here, like Ruby said. We will try to get some pictures to show you. And we sure wish your mom had the camera when Stan was totin' you across the yard! You would've won lots of awards with that one.

We can tell you have your hands full. We can send Teka to help if you would like!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Lacie!

Then... roaching on mud like nothing! Sure it was fun!

Maggie & Mitch said...

That Stan is a handful, isn't he! How dare he pick you up and carry you like a ragdoll, Lacie! We're so glad you nipped him and put him in his place!
Mom sure does love all of those tulips!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Daisy said...


I think those flowers are very beautiful!

Deetz said...

Those are beautiful flower pics...I cannot believe he picked you up and ran with you in his mouth. Hope you are okay. I would have bit him
Good thing he didn't drop you in the mud.

Penny & Poppy said...

Poor Lacie...did BabyStan think you were a stuffie? It's a good thing he didn't shake you! No wonder you're mad at him! The flowers are very bootiful!

Poppy & Penny

Molly and Taffy said...

Oh poor you Lacie. Are you alright after being in "Jaws"? He sounds a bit of a pickle your big brother. We liked the photos of all the pretty flowers we don't have too many in our garden now as we have stampeded all over them!

Noah the Airedale said...

Hey Lacie, it's a good think you're used to being carried around in Babystans mouth cause when you come down here to nurse me back to health next Friday there's a good chance Lucy or Tess will do the same thing to you.......sigh. Willow's good, she wants to be your assistant.

Hugs and tail wags

Anonymous said...

Is use okay, that was twerible of Baby Stan to do such a thing to use. I thinks we may have to stop calling him Baby Stan and start calling him wagedy Stan the Man, since he finks use is a wag doll.
The flours are gorgeous.
Tell Mumsie thanks cause Nanny sore is frustated.

Hey Burgh Terriers,

Too bad those beautiful flowers weren't in your yard and mine too cause I don't know about you but we are sick of the mud and yucky weather. But according to Gram.... and knock on one around here has gotten in the mud lately and rolled around. No holes dug either....but we just have been too busy to do that right now.....

Ya guys will miss a great dog show today...sorry we won't see ya.

Agatha and Archie said...

Sounds like any day in our house(except I personally like to just snap my mouth around the top of Archies head) I think it was a bit rude of Mumsie to pick a cactus for you...hrmmpphh..I would have picked a rose. the boy's flowers are pawfect. PL2 says I would be the HUGEST cactus know in the world.Not sure what that means but I think I don't like it. I LOVVE the blonde! Archie has rented a driver so he can show you the town(this ought to be ripe) Love Agatha

Joe Stains said...

wow you took a ride on the babystan express!! those flowers are nice, we have a bunch of weeds in our yard and that is it. I think you might have to start meditating or something to deal with those dudes of yours!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Wow, such pretty flowers! Mama said her bulb flowers are just beginning to sprout green things above the ground. And she said to tell you that when ours bloom, winter will be done cause it will snow when they bloom & wreck them, then the weather gets nice & warm, hehehehe.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

those are really pretty flowers. our mom loves the sight of them.

that must have been a terrifying experience for you to be in Babystan's mouth and him zooming all over the yard with you. no wonder you bit him. we hope you taught him a lesson not to do that again. that is just bad and should not be tolerated. we're glad you survived. we hope your mom is going to survive.


Peanut said...

Oh those are pretty flower. We are so glad babystan just took you for a little ride and didn't hurt you.

Hi, Lacie -

Mama and I wanted to tell you that the tulips are beautiful. We have some in our yard but they probably won't sprout until sometime in May. We still have a bit of cold weather. The crocuses in the yard are just starting to come out.

Your brother babyStan sounds like he is a hellion! We're glad you showed him whose boss. I (Hershey) probably would have done the same thing - or licked him to death!

Papa and I talked to Kaci and Grammy yesterday and they got more snow. We got more rain.

Have a good weekend.

Love -

Those flowers are so pretty! Mom can never grow pretty stuff like that. Only pretty dogs!

Mom ordered that pink flamingo in my video as a present for a beeyootiful lady Boston friend of mine and when she got it out of the box and saw it's little legs there was no way she could send it to another Boston! So I had 50 seconds of fun tearing it up !!

Mango said...

Well, you do look kind of like a stuffie...

Eric said...

Hey Square doggies,your the best!I't's soooo pawsome of you to include me in your pack, I'm deeply honoured, thank you. Hope we can hang out and do lots of woofing around together - you seem like a crazy bunch of fruit loops, sort of remind me of me!

I feel for you bro' Scruff, my sympathies,my cat brother treats me with just about as much respect as Babystan treats you but that's another bloggie. I'm not even gamma..

Mom has adjusted my blog photo as it was too dark, you can see the book better now! Tell your Momsie the book is even older than the Wheelie bunch, about 1921.We have loads of old books like that,I love 'em, wheelie very tasty with hours of sniffing potential.

Have a good square one packies.

smoochie kisses

Koobuss said...

Wow!! First of all, the flowers are beautiful! It sounds like Auntie Mumsie's flower picks for you guys are pretty accurate. Makes ya think.

Secondly, Lacie, you have every right to be mad at Stan. it was not nice of him to run around with you in his mouth. After all, you are his big sister and the alpha female, right! He deserved to get bitten. Young Stan seems to be a goof. And after all, the rest of you are so sane.

Rollin' in and roachin' in the mud seems like a lot of fun though. I'd like that a lot.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
