Christine over at Stine Writing is our host for the Simply 6 Minutes challenge.
‘Hello. Would you like to say something to our audience?’
The dog turned a disbelieving eye to the flower on its left.
‘Whaaat?’ came the quivering reply.
‘You’ve just won a major award and I thought you’d like to say a few words.’
‘This is spooky! You’re a flower!’
‘So? We have minds and opinions too you know. We’re not just here for you to sniff, cock your leg and then turn your backsides on us to scratch the dust in our faces.’
‘I don’t do that! I’m a bitch!’
‘Ah, sorry, couldn’t see the equipment. So you’re a squatter.’
‘I am no such thing! I have a home of my own with a comfy bed, cushions, two meals a day, plenty of walks, treats when I’m good and toys to play with. Everybody loves me.’
‘Lucky you. I’m wet, cold, live outside in a bed of dirt and rely on the sun to thrive. Care to change places?’
‘Not on your nelly. Anyway, whoever heard of a talking flower?’
‘The same person who’s listening to a talking dog.’

Hilarious story Di
Thanks. The expression said it all!
Haha. Fun take, Di
You’re welcome 😀
This is truly charming 💜
It was the expression………….
Cute! I had a bitch that lifted her leg. She thought she was the leader of the pack! Short little spaniel mix.
Ha! Maggie’s predecessor didn’t cock his leg until he was about 18 months old, but even then he seemed to prefer to squat.
You certainly captured the double take.
Haha! The photo is hilarious! And the conversation fits it perfectly!
Bahahaha! That is so funny. It was like the flower was posing as a microphone, interviewing the poor, scared pup. The funniest is the twist at the end. Us humans always think we know what dogs “must be thinking” and sometimes I think we truly believe we are 100% correct. Thanks for participating!!

For all the animal lovers who can “talk” to their animals and feel like they are having a real conversation. Thanks for the contribution!
Thanks for the terrific prompt this week.
Thanks Di! I’m glad you liked it.
Anything to do with dogs or animals…………
Good show! What an amazing photo! I’ve never seen a dog make that kind of face and I grew up with three: a poodle, a German shepherd mix and a black lab. Labs are really special. I’m sure you will agree! 🙂
Hi Russell. I love all dogs, and some of their expressions are priceless. This was the photo provided for the prompt and I think it’s brilliant. Thanks for reading and commenting.
Lol! I love this! ❤ so cute!
It’s a great picture
Este cãozinho parece que não gostou do cheiro da flor. Kkkkk!
“This puppy looks like he didn’t like the smell of the flower. ”
Maybe the pup suffers from hay fever!
Eu adoro os animais demais!
‘I love animals so much’.
Então nós temos algo em comum. Paranéns para nós dois.
‘So we have something in common. Paranéns for both of us.’
The translator doesn’t give me the english for Paranens. Help please?
Parabéns é o mesmo que congratulações.
Eu escreví esta palavra errada. O correto é “parabéns”. Desculpe.
Thank you. Take care
‘I got that word wrong. The correct thing is “congratulations.” Sorry.’
This is brilliant and hilarious 🤣
I bet flowers will complain the same way if given the ability to speak
Brilliant writing on a favorite subject of my imagination.
