Tulips: A study

Bonjour everyone! Today, I, Salinger the Pug wish to share my artistic side and quiet mom down at the same time. She's been squealing about her tulips (which is about all she can grow without killing) and has been trying to take some pics through the door and they came out looking all artsy fartsy with reflections and weird lighting.

SO...without further ado...I give you....TULIPS...A Photo Composition!!!

It has been rainy and soggy here in Indy the last few days, so this captures the sadness of the tulips in the cold pre dawn rain (notice me looking forlorn in the foreground)
***Mom's note*** Whatever, Salinger...you have that look because you were whining because you had to pee and wouldn't go outside in the rain!

The tulips are screaming in the darkness, while I stand by watching helplessly
(***and still had to pee!)

"Tulips and Hungry Pug" is the title of this one. I was done admiring them and was wondering when mom was going to GET ON THE STICK and make my breakfast!!!!
(***Maybe after you get on the stick and go out and take a leak...we'll talk about breakfast!!!)

Ok, maybe the tulips looked better in the rain and darkness...it seems that HALF of them didn't even come up around the tree this year (notice the bald spot on this side). OOOPS! Looks like we're going to have to re-bulb this fall!!!! Note the anguished look on my face when I finally saw the tulips up close in the daylight. Gaaahhh!!!

Enjoy the photos and make sure to check back with us tomorrow evening...TOMORROW IS MY BIRTHDAY and I'll be 2!!!!! Mom and dad think it's total crap that I was BORN on tax day and they can't even claim me as a deduction.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Wow, Sal! That sure is artsy fartsy! Sure you weren't named for Salvadore Dahli?

Salinger, I won't potty outside in the rain either. Why don't our Mommies understand that we don't like the raindrops hitting our buggy eyes.

SALINGERRR! Tomorrow is your BIRTHDAY?! I had NO idea! OMD! I can't wait to hear all about it!

The tulips are LOVELY! Those are momma's favorites. All of her wedding flowers were tulips!

Salinger - I had that same look on my face this morning because I too refuse to go out and pee in the rain. I don't like getting wet and I whine and cry until I get picked up and put outside - yucky!
Looks like you already have some fall work lined up - you are so organized.
I can't believe that tomorrow is your birthday. I know what you mean about the tax deduction because my mom says she should be able to claim me because I am a dependent. Can't wait to see what you get for your birthday tomorrow.
Stubby xoxo

Beautiful photos!

So, you put the bulbs in the ground...in the fall in order to have them sprout now? I guess I missed the boat!

Hey Saliger!!

I already have your birthday gift and a very special card for you:)!!! You will have to let me know when we can bring it down to you!!

I love your pictures, but I have always known you were the artsy type:)

Give me a call!!
I love you man!!

Tulips are one of my favourites too, although we only ever buy them from the florist, having a paved back yard and not a grassy garden *sigh

I once tried to grow sunflowers in a pot... the least said about that the better !

Wow - no one will ever forget what day your birthday is!!!! You are going to get a party, and presents, and cake...aren't you?

Pug Posse said...

Great pictures, S-dog! You are so artsy-fartsy! We have the same problem with the rain...but we like to confuse Mommy by running outside then running back in while she's trying to herd the rest of the Posse out...it's an awesome game, but she doesn't seem to like it much!
Pug hugs and kisses!

Dog Beds said...

I love Tulips! They are my favorite flower. Duke doesn't want to go to the bathroom in the rain either!

I am running a contest for a new dog bed
