More Picnic Fun

Another of the fun events at the Picnic in the Bark is the Wallymelon Eating Time sponsored by Ronnii and Uji. Be sure to visit HERE for all the photos of Blogville enjoying wallymelon.

You know I love wallymelon, Mom. Can I please have a taste?


Sniff, sniff, sniff - thanks anyway, but you can give it to TD or Ciara. I prefer duck jerky.

(Ever the cautious one when faced with something new.)

Hmmm, what is THIS? I haven't had this before.

Well, TD says I will like it, and you know us two, two peas in a pod. Or is that two seeds in a wallymelon?

The Wallymelon treats were a big hit with our younger generation.

Meanwhile there is also a very special event going on at the AFSS blog - a Flower Show at one of the most impressive gardens ever. Be sure to stop by and admire all the gorgeous blooms and furries sponsored by Artemisia, Fenris, Socks, and Scylla with the special help from their Mom Alasandra.

I found some yellow daylilies in memory of my pal Dakota.

We borrowed our neighbor's garden for this shot.

We are so happy we were able to participate in so many of the fun events from the Picnic in the Bark.

Does that wallymellon come in tuna flavor?

Holly and Khady said...

I do believe Dave will be jealous of your wallymelon!! I, too, love wallymelon, but the stupid humans haven't given me any in a really long time!!


sprinkles said...

I can't even remember the last time I had wallymellon. I don't think my boys have ever had any, now that I think about it. Chico may have since I'm not his first owner.

T. Maxx said...

Those yellow day lilies are really beautiful! Such a sweet sentiment in remembering Princess Dakota!!

BeadedTail said...

So many pups seem to like watermelon so it's about high time I tried some too! It's cute that Ciara is so cautious with everything although that really surprised us. She's such a sweetie pie! The photos in front of the flowers were both lovely!

Mrs. JP said...

We love the melons too!!!
Hey,,,is the roof done?

Archie and Melissa said...

happy happy friday!

We are on Team Phantom.

Suka said...

I have never had wallymelon, but I am kind-of siding with Phantom that jerky is the way to go. I think meat always trumps fruit. BOL! I will have to paw my way over to Ronnii and Uji to give the wallymelon a try.

The daylilies are beautiful, and such a sweet reminder of your loved Dakota. :->


Amber-Mae said...

Yummy yummy! I LOVE wallymelons too. I wish my hoomies would get some for us soon. We have not eaten wallymelon for a loooooong time!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

We are having a blast. We are so glad you had a chance to come by and visit with us.

Now that we know how good watermelon taste we are going to have to help ourselves to some out of the garden. You don't think Mommy will miss them do you?

KB said...

Wallymelon! The looks on your faces made me laugh and laugh! Our dogs love fruit but I've never tried wallymelon on them!

Beautiful flowers!

Kari in WeHo said...

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

I am personally with Phantom on the watermelon thing, but Quinn, YoYoMa and Nuka all love it!

You are a splendid trio of gardeners! The flowers look so pretty under your tender care. The flower and garden show at the Picnic is spectacular!
