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!
