Flowers de la Semaine and the Age of Aquari-dog


Hi, Everyone.  It’s me, Vanna White Dog.  For those of you who don’t know me, I’m the cutest (and maybe the only) gender-bending doggie in North America.  You can read more about my modeling career here

For this week’s Flowers de la Semaine, Clover and I channel flower children with daisies from the Motherdog.  Most of you know the Motherdog as Sallymandy.   

This photo shoot comes from the cabin at Placid Lake that the Greatgrandfatherdog built about fifty years ago.  We spent four exhausting days there. 

Now.  Let’s talk about me. 

Is my daisy chain too long?  Does it make me look fat? 


Clover got some daisies, too. 

I think she looks a little funny.  Kind of like those people we used to see in Haight-Ashbury back in ‘69. 


Here’s another picture of me on the cabin porch.  I’m posing with flowers the Motherdog put in the Greatgrandmotherdog’s yellow thingy.  Some kind of “Fiesta ware gravy boat.”   


I don’t get the fuss about this object.  We did not have a fiesta, and there was no gravy.  Instead, the Motherdog filled the boat with flowers she picked on a looong walk with Clover and me.  

She says these flowers are:      

Ox-eye daisies…

and…wild onions?!

Gee whiz.  Ox!  Hare!  Onions!  Clover and I got pretty hungry on this photo shoot. 

The Motherdog gave us a treat when our work was done…


…and that was pretty groovy. 


Peace, Love and Understanding….Vanna/Riley, and Clover

Riley/Vanna makes a wonderful flower child. But I can't help but wonder, does Clover not like to model?

HUGE SMILES. O.M.G. how cute! Does this daisy chain make me look fat? LOLOL!!!!!!

I was born in the Haight in 1964. We moved out before the Summer of Love, but I like to go back to shop!

The perfect model ;D

Vanna is a true inspiration to models everywhere. The camera absolutely loves her, and doesn't even add the usual 10 pounds. I just love looking at the big brownish nose. I'm a little biased as I feel my dog is the cutest dog in the universe (I'll have to put my blog where my mouth is, won't I?) but these two a certainly closing the gap.
