Carrots: The rest of the story

On April 5th mom was trying to convince me to eat a carrot
click here if you missed that saga.  I had a hard time convincing her I don't like my food to be technicolor and most of all I'm a meat eater!
Below you will see me plundering* through Mom recycling bag that she takes to the grocery store every Thursday

*too bad plundering isn't a Saturday Photo hunt word..this would be a great Photo.

Actually I was hot on the trail of something 

It had an earthy scent..you know kinda like catnip...
I gave several bags a sniff...

then lo and behold out of no where I found it...
the carrot bag OMCs I love essence of carrot
probably better than essence of catnip
I rolled all over it trying to absorb every last ounce 
orange aroma
Hey mom next time just give me the carrot bag w/o carrots...
it is divine...
Oh and I learned another interesting fact about the word carrot from my very smart friend Bertie the most handsome Wirehaired Fox Terrier.  He was recently translating one of his scientific papers from French to English... he said French for a 'core' of rock translates back into English as a 'carrot'! 
Bertie you are so smart and funny!!  Thanks for sharing this tidbit Bertie I had no idea I'd be able to use it.

We hope to have some flowers by next Friday!

  3. I must say I am still resistant to the appeal of carrots in any form as a foodstuff. (And I'll let you into a secret - Gail only eats them when they are thoroughly disguised with other flavours as part of a stew or salad).
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie.

  9. Geez, I had no idea the carrot bag could be so much fun! Will have to give it a try. My peeps are always trying to give me green beans as snacks ...sigh. This was the vet's idea of a low fat snack. No fun at all.

  20. This made our mom laugh!!! She never thought about how carrots smell. That's so biped of her, isn't it? I like to eat carrots, but I've never tried rolling on some. I might have to give that a try!
