Petunia

1.13.2011
Just to be clear, Petunia (the French bulldog I've wanted for YEARS...at least 10...) is imaginary...She hasn't yet been born, which Jersey, the Terd Face Killah, says is a good thing. He seems to think we don't have room/money/time/enough love for a puppy. Did I mention I like to kick boys in the balls?

THIS is my pup, Petunia!!!

OK...Jersey says I'm weird and acting like a 4-year-old child because I'm writing ya'll about my imaginary pet. Well, you know what...that's how one copes when they don't get their way. That's how they make it through the days. It's how they carry on. PS. Bite me.

I love my dog. Every time I see one like her out in public my voice goes up a couple octaves. The weird part is, it's like the other frenchies know that I love and adore them because they wag their little stubs and dog smile at me. Melts my heart like butta. Even Caitlin McGauley loves the frenchies...

Petunia's full name is Revolutionary Petunia. She's named after Alice Walker's poem, titled the same:

The Nature of This Flower Is to Bloom.
Rebellious. Living.
Against the Elemental Crush.
A Song of Color
Blooming
For Deserving Eyes.
Blooming Gloriously
For its Self.

That poem inspired the beginning of my blog...I started writing in 2005 on myspace and that my friends was the name/blog I chose...I'm kind of in love with the name and the idea of my cool pup, chillin' in a green wagon, being rebellious, and blooming gloriously for no one but herself.

  1. I too have an imaginary french bulldog (or boston terrier). Her name is Penelope. I believe there is no such thing as not enough room/money/time/love for 1 dog, which is why I have my sweet puggle Quincy in my studio apartment on a doc student salary and doc student schedule. But Penelope is imaginary because there is such a thing as not enough time/money/room for 2 dogs...but always enough love :)

  2. P.S. Almost forgot, Penelope's middle name is Olivia (yes, she has a middle name) in honor of my sweet baby min pin Oliver who died a couple of years ago...how's that for crazy!
