My very own pet FLAMINGO!

It's been a while since I have conducted a scientific experiment. Well, today is the day! I am going to grow my very own PET FLAMINGO! Every household needs one. I got mine from my friends Kimo & Sabi!
As you can see, I cannot wait to get started...
Harley was very eager to help, too. I agreed to let him be my lab assistant. But since he has no experience working in a lab, I do not have to pay him.
Here I am checking out the growing medium. "Growing Medium" is another way of saying "the bowl of water."
Now comes the hard part. We must wait.
Still waiting...
Harley! Please do not play with the experiment!
♪ Insane in the membrane. Insane in the brain! ♫ My flamingo is looking like a bowl of pink brains. This could mean he will be very smart when he is done growing.
Finally, my pet flamingo is all grown up! I decided to let him stand outside as a lawn ornament, until he gets dried back up again.

77 Notes for Daisy:

Poppy Q said...

Wow, that one was almost as exciting as the sea monkeys.

Did it smell tasty? Did the alligators eat it?

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hi Daisy,

That was SO COOL!!!

I love the pictures of you and Harley dipping your paws in the bowl...your human is really good with the camera machine to catch action shots like that!

What are you going to do with your flamingo now that he's grown?

Ms. Tiger Woods from Canada! said...

Whatcha gonna name him??
We named one of the berdie babies after yoo, Skeez and da great Jeter Harris!! hahahah
Yoor flamingo sure is a special berd!

*headbonks from Canada for yoo and Harley!*

ps, Momma wants to invite yoo and Harley over for a virtual BBQ! :)

Aniemother said...

I hope he is very smart!

BooBoo said...

You must be good at following directions. I don't know if I could do that.

Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

You are SO LUCKY to have your very own pet flamingo!!!!

Alasandra said...

Wow, we love your lab experiments and Harley was a very good assistant.

We think a pink flamingo is the purrfect pet for you. ~S,S, C & F

i beati said...

He's lovely and fits in perfectly with your other decor. Wow you followed directions perfectly!!I told my friends about your Hula card!!Sandy

Tracey and Huffle said...

You should have made a movie about the flamingo.

"Growing Medium" is another way of saying "the bowl of water."... Daisy, you crack me up!

Head-bonks from Gandalf and Grayson!

Sweet Praline said...

Good job, Daisy. Your pet Flamingo has grown up. I can't wait to read about your adventures.

Grace said...

Well aren't you clever, Daisy. Maybe I'll get a pet flamingo too.

GSD Adventures said...

That is awesome! I can't believe how patient you had to be!!

Wags,
Pruett and Daphne

CCL Wendy said...

You and Harley were very patient waiting for the flamingo to grow (NOT)!

You're right he looked like pink brains. And now he's a lawn ornament. Such is the life of a flamingo!

Janet said...

WOW! Very fun, Daisy! How long did it take your pet flamingo to grow? Last year we had a "grow a boyfriend" and it took several weeks!

barb said...

Daisy, here is a link to get that soft glow without being blurry using PhotoShop Elements. It's called the Orton-effect, and I must say it is currently my favorite. It takes a rather ordinary photo and makes it much prettier! I'm glad you liked it!

You can also get an Orton-ish effect using Picnik.com with one click - I love Picnik!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

We hope the alligator doesn't eat him.

Puglette said...

hmmm...well, maybe the flamingo will attract lizards for you and harley to play with. or maybe he would like to swim with the fishes in the pond.
happy thursday!
hugs,
puglette
:o)

Princess said...

This is a great experiment Daisy.
I hope the flamingo does not get eaten by the alligators haha
Have a fun day today Daisykins

Keisha said...

Yay! That is so cute. :)

The Furry Kids said...

Cool experiment! I think I might like to experiment with a nice pink flamingo. But Mama says the boys might eat it. Darn! You're so lucky that Harley doesn't eat your experiments. ;)


Love,
Tazo

Pricilla said...

It was nice of you to let Harley help out...
I am proud of you for not eating the Flamingo.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Wow Daisy! You grew a flamingo!

Scrooge said...

That looks like a yummy toy for chewing. I wants one.

Liss said...

Cool experiment. Is it OK if we promote your Halmark Card on our blog this Friday?

MacVet, Slash and Bronzy said...

What an awesome pet! It shure is a lot more fun than watching our cat grass grow. *yaawn*

~Slash & Bronzy

Milo and Alfie said...

Having a pet flamingo sounds fun!

Aoise said...

Is flamingo going to be outside all the time or will you let him indoors sometimes?

Lorianna said...

Hi Daisy and Harley! I haven't seen you do an experiment with growing a pet in water in quite a while. I'm glad this one turned out so nicely.
He or she is very pretty! It did look like brains for a bit didn't it? (now I have that song stuck in my head!)
I'm glad you are feeling better and playing again Daisy. I hope you have a fun day with Harley and Mommie.
hugs,
Lorianna

Junior and Orion said...

That was a purrty cool experiment!!! Have you played with the flamingo yet?

Max said...

Wow...we used to have a pink flamingo named Fred but I haven't seen him in a long, long time. His legs fell off, so maybe that's why. I think he's stuck in the rumbly bike room and can't walk out. But I NEVER got to stick him in water and watch him grow! I feel cheated!

jenianddean said...

That is a very neat pink flamingo. It was nice of you to let Harley help, and to let the flamingo go outside and explore with the other wildlife.
--Jasper

Kelli said...

Daisy, I am so impressed with all your skill and your scientific mind. It was so nice of you to let Harley help. You are such a nice sis. The flamingo is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

What fun!!! Are you going to grow a whole flock?????

Luzinha said...

hey, Daisy, so good to know that you already get better! thank God!

how cute is your flamingo toy! I loved that!

kisses for you all!

Thoughts said...

Wow Daisy! That is certainly very cool! your very own flamingo! And how nice of you to let harley help you out!

Purrs,
Theodore and sasha

Mo said...

That was pretty cool, Daisy!
You're right, every home needs one!
And it did kinda look like brains...
If the alligator eats him, would he continue to grow in the gator's tummy?
Looking forward to your next 'speriment!
love,
mo

Jemma the Chihuahua said...

Daisy, now it looks like you have a pink brain right on your lawn. I want my own flamingo!

Babs-beetle said...

Ha ha! I think that maybe you could call your pet flamingo 'Brains' and Harley could hire him as 007.5's assistant!

Anya said...

Waaaaaaaaaw
I like also the flamingo :)
Nice toy !!
you can play the holeeeeee day;)

Cat with a garden said...

Pawsome! Being Germany-bound kitties we don't have high hopes of seeing a real flamingo in our lifes. A pet flamingo could solve this! He looks very cool! And we love it when you do experiments, Daisy!
Purrs, Siena & Chilli

Mickey,Georgia , Tillie said...

COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks like the Flamingo likes it outside too ;) Your experiment was a success and Harley did pretty good too ,heehee
Purrs Mickey,Georgia & Tillie

Tristan and Crikey said...

That's one of the coolest experiments, ever! Do you think that he'll be able to swim? Or fly?

Black Cat said...

What a lovely experiment! I can see that you and Harley enjoyed it and the flamingo has grown from a pink blobby brain to a graceful bird! :) xxx

Parker said...

I want one!

michico*Adan said...

Woww....

Glad to see your experiment went well!
Kisses and hugs

Grrreta said...

Believe it or not, we actually have a bowl of growing medium at our house right next to our food bowl! Did your paw or Harley's paw grow really big after dipping them in the growing medium?

Derby said...

You can grow pink fevver birdies? Wow! Thanks for the Gotcha Day wishes.

Split Rock Ranch said...

Wow - does the flamingo still look like a brain?! Please stop by my blog to pick up an award.

SophieKitty said...

That flamingo looks like a good pet. You can grow him over and over!

The Devil Dog said...

Wow, he came out big! Can you make more? Wouldn't a flock be fun?

Roxy

Katie said...

Wow that was fun to watch! I got worried for a second that the flamingo might grow too big for the bowl - but it turned out okay!

petra said...

I'm not sure that is a pink flamingo. I am thinking it might be a zombie bird...... sorry.

Cory said...

That's so cool! A pink pet!

Fin said...

He looks great in the outdoors.

Country Cats said...

Wow, what a cool pet! We hope your flamingo is, indeed, very smart!

meemsnyc said...

Wow, how cool, your very own pink flamingo!! Nice.

Camie's Kitties said...

Daisy, that looks like a great experiment. And it looks like Harley was a good helper. Harley must have just been checking on the temperature of the water to make sure it wasn't too hot or too cold.

Tavi, Cody, Camie, Miss Jade and Gracie

Bae Bae said...

That looks interesting.
Did it get any bigger outside?
