The Answer on Flower Friday

A large majority of you were correct in guessing that I was eating watermelon in my Wordless Wednesday photos.
I knew I had smart furiends!

 Since today is Flower Friday, I thought it would be appropriate to show you a watermelon bloom.

Not the prettiest flower on the planet but it sure does make something wonderful to eat!

Here are Wednesday's photos before being turned into
"coloring book" images:

No, I did not eat that whole piece of watermelon.
Mom always gives me a piece that looks like this when she is done cutting it up:
See, no teeth marks yet!

Now, for those of you who have not ever eaten a watermelon this way, I will demonstrate.
Any questions?

One more thing......
Today is Momma's birthday!
Do you think I might get some cake?

Thanks for the skillful demonstration on the art of melon nomming... I always knew my girl is talented :) Here's wishing momma a very Happy Birthday!... and many more to come. Hope she'll have a fantastic day celebrating with daddy and you... and I'm pretty sure you'll get a piece of the cake too, Twixie.

Licks, hero

Happy birthday Twixxys Mummy!

MMMM that watermelon looks nomalicious = I have not had any.

Thanks Twix, we haven't had watermelon yet. We're waiting for warmer weather. You have such good manners. We'd probably have it ALL over the floor.

Hope your Mum had a great birthday (and you got some cake and ice cream.)

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Even though the watermelon flower isn't the prettiest, I think it is kinda cute. :)
You're right about the yummy fruit though. When I eat watermelon, my fur turns red/pink. I guess I eat with my face, not just my teeth! :)
I can see by the video that you sure got into the watermelon Twix, as the whole BOWL was moving!!! :D

Cuddles and licks,
Love Miley xxx

Twix, thank you for showing us the art on how to eat a watermelon. We thinks we are going to bug Mom now to buy some for us!

Please tell your Mom that all 3 of us said Happy Birthday, give her lots of licks and puppy kisses from us, and that we think you should have a piece of cake!!

You are so smart to just eat the red part, Twix! We would have eaten the whole thing - rind and all!

Lola said...

You are an excellent eater of watermelon, Twix. If I did fruit I'd follow your lead. Maybe I'll give it another try. Who know?

Please wish your Mom the happiest birthday ever and remind her that giving your doggy some of your birthday cake brings good luck in the coming year. (I just made that up, but I think it could catch on.)

lotsa licks, Lola

Thanks for that most instructive demonstration on the proper eating of watermelon. Now I just have to convince momma to get me some so I can try it out myself.

Hi Miss Twix - ooh, we love watermelon too! We always get those 'cuts' of watermelon too, and our humans are always amazed at how delicately we nibble our way round the remaining watermelon.

Happy Birthday, Twix's Mom!!!! Looks like August is big for our Mom's birthdays, yours, ours and Puddles- all in the same week!! Maybe August should be the month of Dachsie Mom's?
