summer and flowers

I've heard that exercise invigorates you, so I decided to take a walk outside and show you our flowers to get invigorated.This is a geranium. It's red. I like to poop beside it on the rocks. It looks like it needs more fertilizer, doesn't it?
And here is another geranium. It's not red and it doesn't need to be planted each year. Like magic, it just pops out of the ground when the weather warms up. It's beyond my reach so it's growing without my help. Imagine that!
On our deck sits this flower in a big pot. I like to chase the petals when the wind blows them off the plant.
This is Moose's favorite plant. The other day he came to see me and I walked over to say hi, and since he's so big, I walked under him. My timing was wrong. He lifted his leg and peed. On me. And then I was whisked into the house for a bath, and Motch was mad that she didn't have her camera to get a picture. Isn't she weird?
OK, the tour is over and so is my exercise for the day. Time for a nap!

Moose peed...on you???? Bwahahahahahaahahahahaha! I did that to Sherman once. Peed right on his head. Serves him right for sniffing every stinkin' blade of grass on our walks.

Sorry about the bath...


Peanut said...

oh thanks for the laugh Petra. We all laughed for minutes before we could leave a comment. Watch out for moose from now on so you don't have to get baths. Your flowers are pretty

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh Petra...that is too funny!!! I mean I hope you can laugh about it now. I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time at all.

Oh and keep up the good work on 'feeding' that geranium!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Naps are great. And the more naps you take, the more awakenings you have. That's what I tell my mom when she says I nap too much. She's jealous of my enlightenment, I think.

Do you have any tile floors to nap on? They're so cool and relaxing.

Beckett said...

Petra, I would be honored to be your friend!

What you can't see in that picture is that there's a gate keeping me from roaming too far and chewing on things. My mom is so picky about that. She put all her shoes and the tasty, tasty laundry behind closet doors. :(

That little geranium needs your help so it can be like the other one! You are so cute when you are so tired!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Petra!
Nice flowers! Sure you were in the wrong place at the wrong time when Moose left his leg!
right now I am going to take a nap too!
Kisses and hugs

You have pretty flowers, Petra! Watch out for that overhead "watering" system of Moose's.

Hahah! It's funny that Moose peed on you. My mom would have been disappointed not to have her camera as well. Trigger once peed on a stranger at the dog park - mom was SO embarrassed!

Molly the Airedale said...

OMG, you poor girlie! Moose must have been blind not to see you! Your flowers are just lovely! Thank you for the tour!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Hugs and tail wags

Just like a male to take care of his bodily functions without regard to his surroundings.

You have a nice yard there is Normal.

Mack said...

Do you want me to come over there and teach Moose a lesson?

Poppy said...

I got peed on once too. It was at the dog park. This little guy just lifted his leg really high and peed right on me...well, okay, he was actually trying to pee on a post, but I was standing right there and I can't believe he didn't see me!!!


Aggie said...


It sounds like you had a big day of exercise. Those are nice flowers....Oh sorry to hear that you got pee on your head. I hope you had a good nap.

Sloppy Licks,

I pee on Tanner all the time, its pretty funny. I really like those purple plants too!

Petra, that was just awful I think you better think of something to do to get even with Moosie. The real Harley peed in my pool this morning then proceeded to drink from it, he thought it was his water dish. I tried going in again!
Love, hugs, bellyrubs, smoochies

That is one of the horrors of having a blog - the humans try to capture every undignified and humiliating experience on film for all to see!

Hey Petra,
I'm sure Moose didn't mean to pee on you. I pee on my sisters all the time totally by accident.
Maybe he just didn't notice you. Us guys are very focused when peeing, and once we start we can't stop mid-stream.
