Worried about out TREE...

Back in JUNE....  when MANY of us all MET UP  in Indiana...  for   the     BAR.....     WE won the Gift that Represented   Dory and Arty and Crew's State of Colliefornia...        There was this Clear TUBE  with a       REAL LIVE   California RED WOOD TREE inside...   it was just a BABY One...

 LOOK at how it GREW...    We had Mom Plant it fur us...   and  we Tended to it all Summer long...
 It got TALLER and TALLER... almost Every Day we could see it growing...
 Can you believe that it USED to fit in that SHORT TUBE???
 The Cooler weather caused MOM to Worry about OUR FURENDSHIP TREE...   so she began to PLAN for how to Over WINTER it...       She finally realized that OUR TREE had become SOOOOO tall that it would NOT fit in any Sunny Location for the winter...  SO...     GASP...
    She took Sharp Scissors and PRUNED it...    She SAYS that it will make the tiny TRUNK stronger and better able to support the "Little Limbs"...       WE say.....  This had BETTER WORK Woman... OR ELSE...

It is cute, but it is so small. You could hang one red ball on it at Christmas to make it look like a Charlie Brown tree. Hope it lives through the winter.

I'm sure your tree will grow back in spring... you have the green paws... you are the only ones in blogville who can raise milkbone trees so the friendship tree is in the bestest paws...

HOPEFULLY 'THE WOMAN' IS CORRECT. If not your case might have to go before the court of common fleas
Hugs madi and MOM

Are you so sadistic that even your plants have to go to the groomer? Next, you'll be taking it to the vet.

Christmas said...

My mom says it looks good! I think the same, but my way of expressing such thoughts would be lifting my leg on it...BOL!

Mara said...

I hope your Mum is right! Because it is a very special gift and even I know it's a special kind of tree!

Frankie and Ernie, I feel sure that this lovely furiendship tree is in the best of hands. Heaven only knows what a pathetic and shrivelled specimen it would be by now if Gail was taking care of it...
Toodle pip!

Seriously though guys, I's pretty sure (very nearly pretty sure anyhoo) that The Woman knows what she is about. Maybe even could 'root' the trimming and you'd have TWO to remember your furiends with. Now that would really be raising the BAR.... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Oz theTerrier said...

That is one fine looking tree, boys. It really did grow a lot so...I hope your mom and her trimming shears did not cause this little tree to get upset and stop growing. I am just saying...it wouldn't be good to kill a furiendship tree.

Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song said...

I am sure your mom did what was best for the tree. Nothing helps things grow like love.

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We hope she's right. We think there is something wrong about pruning FRIENDSHIP presents. But if it gets winter sun...and lots of love...it should be fine. (Just don't go christening it or anything.)

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

We think your Mom knows a lot about growing things, so we are going to trust her wisdom and hope the tree flourishes.

Millie and Walter said...

We will keep our paws crossed that the tree trimming does the trick. Otherwise maybe you can threaten to get rid of some of your mom's snow freaks.

Hailey and Zaphod and their Lady said...

It looks so much bigger. We cross our paws that it does ok.

Idaho PugRanch said...

Wow we are impressed you got it to grow so much - hope it does survive the winter
hugs
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

Molly and Mackie said...

So it will sorta be a bonsai California Redwood. We bet your mom will winter the tree over just fine!

Braeden and Seth said...

How great is that little redwood! We think your Mom will do an excellent job over wintering it. Can't wait to see how much it grows in the Spring!

M. K. Clinton said...

That is a grrrrreat ree! Hey, maybe she can bring it inside and you can decorate it for Christmas.

Murphy said...

You shouldn't let your mom play with scissors!! We ope she doesn't think she is Lana Scissorhands!

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Crikey I hope it's ok!! I'm sure it will be. Don't pee on it for goodness sake. Wait till it's bigger.

Dory and the Mama said...

OMD...We can't believe how HUMUNGOUS your Sequoia Tree is...we think your Mama did the right thing and just know it will thrive under you and your Mamas green thumb care!!
Smileys!

PeeEss...Charlie has a point tho, you probably shouldn't pee on it, at least not until it gets a bit bigger. ;-)

Oreo said...

Yah or else!! You have a little Charlie Brown tree this year!!
