I like when my kids give me flowers. My son just gave me a bouquet of weeds a couple of weeks ago. Which reminds me, I need to discard those and clean the vase.
Today, my German Shepherd surprised me with a bunch of flowers. I had let him out to do whatever he does. About a half hour later, I heard a clunking sound on the back sliding doors. I went over to investigate. The dog had a lovely bouquet of sedum from my garden in his mouth.
"Aw, Schultz, are those for me?" I asked as I opened the door.
I attempted to take them from his mouth. He jumped back.
"What is this, a game?"
He presented the flowers once again. I reached for them. He jumped back.
"Okay, dog. Are you saying you want to play a game of tug with the flowers?"
He whipped his head back and forth.
I took that as a "yes."
So much for flowers for the mommy.
