I just had a feeling something new had been posted... the flowerpups were calling me.

They are adorable! Great "get well soon" gift!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 11:53 AM

Eeeeee!!! Loves 'em. They're all "Baroo? I'm a *Flower*?!? Baroo???" Kyuuuuuute.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 11:55 AM

How adorable are those? I definitely think American florists should jump on this one. So cute!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 11:56 AM

I didn't used to be allergic to dogs, but NOW I am!

Thanks a LOT, Japan. =)

Achooooooo, yarrrrrrrgh.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 11:57 AM

The Japanese do indeed lay claim to much of the cute in the world. As a former florist, however, I want to stand up for other parts of the world and say "hey, we make those, too". Well, not me personally, but I know shops back home that do make them. When you work with flowers, they're "ughhhh"; when you don't (like me, post-florist era), they're schweet.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 11:58 AM

At first I didn't see it.. and I was all.. umm.. Meg's getting all worked up over flowers? Pretty sure we have those here too... OHHHHHH.. AWESOME.. lol.

Yeah that's really cool.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 12:00 PM

A barroo bouquet!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 12:01 PM

Oh my God, if a guy ever got me a bouquet like that I might have to marry him!

Oh this is definately what I needed to wash my poor brain out after the meerkat pic.

Very cute!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 12:11 PM

They don't bark, piddle on the floor, or eat your slipper and soooo cute.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 12:20 PM

A b'roo'quet?

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 12:23 PM

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 12:24 PM

MOST ADORABLE THING EVER!! Where can I get a bouquet like this in the US?!?!?

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 12:48 PM

They have officially kicked our ass - again!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 12:50 PM

TJ & Aubrey -- barooquet. Yeppers. w00f!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 12:52 PM

"You don't bring me bowsers..."

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 01:01 PM

The ultimate evidence that Malteses aren't actually dogs, but little balls of annoyingly cute sunshine.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 01:01 PM

"You don't fetch me nuthin'..."

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 01:03 PM

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 01:30 PM

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 01:30 PM

awww i wish someone would send me a barooquet - they look so cuddlesome though heh id probably end up with pollen on me nose from all the snorgeling heehee

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 01:31 PM

They look so real!! Cute stuff.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 01:55 PM

Now that's a bouquet of flowers I would LOVE to receive and snorgle! Too cute, I feel...I feel faint...(thud)

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 01:57 PM

I give. I simply GIVE. NO WAY to compete w/ our Japanese friends on this level of cute-a-tude. WTH?!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 01:59 PM

...I must take exception. They're doing fine in the MANUFACTURED cute department... but ain't nobody got nuthin' on CO, far as DISCOVERED cuteness.

We are teh awesum.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 02:02 PM

Aw! So cute! Flower pups... they look so real! It would be sad when they wilted though... eek!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 02:45 PM

Actually, the flowers aren't from Japan, they're from South Korea.

Caption: SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA - DECEMBER 29: A South Korean woman holds a dog flower display at a department store on December 29, 2005 in Seoul, South Korea. The year of 2006 is the year of the dog according to the Chinese lunar calendar where each calendar year is named after one of the 12 key animals in turn and starts on January 29, 2006.

But still, cute! Too bad there's no year of the cat.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 03:49 PM

ahhh they look so real!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 04:25 PM

ah Chickie, i knew she didnt look japanese! thanks for the caption.

i need an excuse to try to make something like that myself.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 06:34 PM

This is soOoOo cute !!!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 07:25 PM

word, chickie. props should definitely be given to the so'ko's--they, too, have the Seoul of cute.

i have never liked getting flowers because it makes me sad to see them die. but for a barooquet i think i could make an exception. seriously, it's like i can *feel* those flowers looking at me...

...or maybe it's only sleep deprivation.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 08:01 PM

Am I the only strange soul who thinks these would make really wacky and cool wedding bouquets?

And how DO you spell bouquet, anyways? :P

Thats so cute, would make a great gift for cheering someone up in the hospital! Unless they hated dogs...lol.

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 10:10 PM

Wish somebody would send me one for my birfday... florists of America, you must copy this idea right away!

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 11:43 PM

That is SO WRONG. And yet so right! :)

I need to figure out how to make a flower poodle for my MIL...

 |  Sep 19, 2006 at 11:47 PM

I thought I saw these on here before?? I guess it was in an email then...
I have a toy from when I was a baby that reminds me of these. It wasn't very cuddly though, it was weird. I can't remmeber if it was a dog or a bear though. It was blue plastic. I think it's still over there at my mom's house. I'm thinking it was a panda.

 |  Sep 20, 2006 at 04:55 AM

ceebs, I had exactly the same reaction! Hey, there were here before! But, since no one else mentioned it I figured it was an email, too.
But, it gave me a few deja vu heebie jeebies!
