A Charlie Guest Post: Malaphors

Charlie Stopping to Smell the Daisies

On a little walk the other day,
Mom made me pose for a
Stop and Smell the Daisies” photo.

Now, I know I am only a dog,
but isn’t the saying supposed to be
Stop and Smell the Roses?”

Daisies don’t even really smell that good.
I guess they are kinda pretty if you’re into flowers
and that kind of stuff….

But when on walks,
I’m a sniffin’ for rabbits and chipmunks
and squirrels and deer.

I’d rather smell what another dog
left behind for me to find.
Now THAT is a smell worth stopping for!

Daisies are for “pushing up,”
and that is NOT
a place I want to go.

I think Mom better
Wake up and smell the Bacon!”
(which I think smells much better than COFFEE!)

Hey – Did you ever imagine a handsome dog like me
was smart enough to understand malaphors too – eh?!
Heck – Mom just learned that word herself!

  1. So happy to see your handsome face this morning Charlie! Your mom is not the only one who knows how to use malaphors…so let’s smell the daisies, roses, coffee, and of course, the bacon! (K)

  3. Oh Charlie, you are one wise dog. Chase asked me to remind you of the sweet smell of Mr. Chippy once you invited him inside to your doggie bed. Woof!


  4. Charlie, you are such a good sport! I’d send you bacon…but, there could be a problem with Customs. they frown at that kind of thing. but, hey, its the thought that counts! You, look stunning in your summer resort backdrop. Is there a Charlie Calendar in the works? dude, you could rake in the bucks with that big flashy smile and those ripped muscles! 🙂 you’d drive those girls crazy!

  5. Oh, Charlie, you continue to amaze and delight us all! And you are right…daisies aren’t really for smelling. But if you keep your nose to the ground, I’m sure you will find lots of other interesting things to smell. And if you find a really, really good smell, always remember to roll in it. That way, you and your whole family can enjoy the smell for days afterwards!

    • Ms Ann – You are SUCH a smart lady! You totally totally get it! My nose does stay to the ground. Sometimes I even miss “seeing” things ahead because I am so busy smelling. And I do currently have a crusty little spot on top of my head that I brought home to share with my family that Mom is thinking of getting off me! The nerve – eh?! I love you Ms Ann! Love, Charlie

  6. You’re a smart boy Charlie. It doesn’t surprise me if you spell flowers, my old girl did that in summer too, she must have liked something in the pots of flowers in the back yard. Have a fun summer Charlie. Be good to your Mom and Dad.
