Flowers and Dogs...

Well, why not.

As a friend mentioned to me yesterday (we were talking about a comment I had received), my blog doesn't have T & A. It primarily consists of D & K (dogs and kids). So this two-fer Brain Bender works at least from the "dogs" standpoint. Ready???


First, a puzzler sent to me from Leslie the Omnibus Driver:

7 dogs were boarding at the local Pet Lodge. Each dog was in a separate run, all in a single row. One of the employees left the cages unlocked and the dogs have all gotten out of their runs. She needs to put each of them back in the right cage, but this is all she remembers. Help her get them in the right cages, and QUICK!

Dogs: Beau, Duke, Fluffy, Lady, Princess, Rover, and Spike

1. Spike doesn't like other dogs much, so he was on one of the ends.

2. Princess was somewhere to the left of Beau.

3. Rover was in the third run from the right.

4. The only dog between Fluffy and Lady was Princess.

5. Duke was directly to the left of Lady.


And this one from our handy, dandy discount MENSA calendar....

Some letters have been removed from the names of the flowers listed below. Fill in the missing letters to find out what they are.
  • A _ _ R _ _ _ _ S
  • _ A _ _ F_ D _ _
  • C _ _ C _ _
  • O _ C _ _ _
  • P _ _ U _ _ _
  • _ E _ _ N _ A


Okay! And like always, the answers will appear in the comments later.

Update: Today's official Smartypants is friend and reader Rich Blank! Whoohoo! And kudos go out to Raging Mom from The Splatter Zone for getting the last flower.
