LJ shootout Week 14

This week's topic was Flora and Faunae. I suck because I thought Flora = flowers and Faunae = other plants. I was wrong. So I DO have things to post this week!

My favourite "faunae," also named for a Flora. Dahlia! Here she is with one of her new gifts a couple days ago:

And here's Dahlia gain, chewing on something MADE from Faunae: A bully stick. What are they made from you ask? BULL PENISES.

Both were taken this week on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18. Only post processing was to brighten things up a bit and up the contrast.

LOL - I was just reading this: http://www.bullysticks4dogs.com/bully_sticks_made.htm

And it says:
Compared to other dog chews, bully sticks last incredibly long time. It can take weeks for a small dog to chew on one bully stick, while large breeds may enjoy chewing of bull pizzles between a few hours and a few days.

Howie can devour a 12" bully stick in a matter of minutes. I wish they lasted hours!

I'm not surprised that he can! Peggy Sue found one of Dahlia's bully sticks (one of the curly ones) and devoured it in about 5 minutes. They last a LONG time with Dahlia. She usually loses interest part way through and then finds it later and finishes it. Some of them I've had to throw out they've been sitting around so long.

Ah, no. Anything related to food, Howie has to make sure it's ALL gone.

I made the mistake of giving him an RMB this summer and shooing him outside with it. I accidently fell asleep on the couch, thinking, "Oh, he'll ask to come in when he's done." 3 hours later (there is a bowl of water outside for him in the summer) I woke up, realized he hadn't asked to come in, and he was STILL outside chewing this bone. His poor pink face was a little sunburned. :(

Aww poor Howie! I'm not even sure Dahlia would chew on bones. I keep thinking about getting her one, but the smoked bones she barely touches usually, not even the ones with a bit of meat still on them. She'll rip off the meat and leave the bone.

That's what I thought Flora and Fauna meant too....how are they defining the competition?

Well, just one picture of flora or fauna and one picture of something made out of flora and fauna.

I ended up looking up the terms on wikipedia.

Flora: a flora (with a lower case 'f') refers to the plant life occurring in a particular region, generally the naturally occurring or indigenous plant life

Fauna: all of the animal life of any particular region or time.

I figure that dogs are pretty much native to this area! lol
