11 Reasons

What could possibly cause me to look as demented as this? (Notice, I've got my magic Wally eyes glowing white hot).

Well, doggies and hammies, that's what I wanted to talk to you about. It seems that the scene of me above is but one of many reasons why my hooman girl has officially started the hunt for my new sissy. That's my news (sorry, nothing scandalous, Scruffy)! My girl thinks I'd not only Iike to have a sissy, but that I need to have a sissy. (And Wally, I'm NOT taking your sissy off your hands. You would miss her too much!)

Here's a little context for the scene you saw above. This is reason # 11, out of 11 reasons, why I need a sissy ~ evidently I crack my girl up when I do this! Incidentally, that's Gertie giving you the booty shot, and inciting my demented behavior. She has graciously agreed to help me demonstrate each reason why my girl thinks I need a sissy. (And, Gertie is not even a possibility since her new family is totally LOVIN' her).

Reason # 10 ~ I like to cuddle with other dogs on a regular basis, and right now I only get to do that if my girl arranges a "play date" for me.

Reason # 9 ~ A sissy would be a good listener if I have secrets to tell when my girl isn't home.

Reason # 8 ~ I get lonely when my girl is gone. Merv my catbro is always here, but he doesn't count since he sleeps like 20 hours a day.

Reason # 7 ~ I have a quota of so many love bites I must give out in a single day, and if I don't, I get constipated (metaphorically speaking).

Reason # 6 ~ My ears are evidently adorable like this and my girl can think of no other way to make this happen on a regular basis.

Reason # 5 ~ I need to impart my wrasslin' moves to somedog else in case I get injured in battle and need another dog to carry on in my name.

Reason # 4 ~ How else will I have a chance to practice my dance moves on a daily basis?

Reason # 3 ~ A sissy could keep me up to date on the state of my dental hygiene and I could do the same for her.

Reason # 2 ~ I would no longer have to sing solo when I listen to "Pure Disco, Volumes 1 & 2."

Reason # 1 ~ The video explains it all. Would you want to deprive a goob like me of this kind of fun?

All I know is that my girl wants to adopt a female from a rescue or shelter situation, and she wants her to be sassy enough to keep me in line (as IF). There are some Wire Foxy girls and some Airegirls that are possibilities, and a couple of you doggies' parents have offered some help finding my sissy. There's no rush. I'll keep you posted.

Goob love,
Brother Stanley

Yes, you need a sister! I still miss Anastasia SOOOOO much. I think the staff will introduce other cats or kittens - but it will just not be the same.... But after a while we probably get used to each other and then I can cuddle and chase and wrestle again... I miss it!
So I think it is GREAT that you bean will get you a companion!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Butchy & Snickers said...

Oh our dawgness, we guessed it, we guessed it! This is great news Stanley. You will love having a sis around to play with, hehehehe! Have you checked on any of the foxy girls in rescue yet? The lady that does the midwest (Cheryl Collins) lives only 40 minutes from us. She really knows WFT well. She also breeds them but is probably giving up the breeding since she spends so much time with the rescue dogs. She could answer lots of questions for you & give you lots of training tips, etc. If you need to get a hold of her, email us & we'll give you her number. We bet you are so excited!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Noah the Airedale said...

Here is my tip Stanley, sisters are great fun and mine always love a game of bitey face but make sure you have your own space....far far away. That way if you ever feel the need to escape you can.


Suki said...

OH MY GOSH!!! Our Moms TOTALLY think alike!! :) This is too funny, Stanny, we're both gonna have new sibs soon!

I love your reasons, and I think they're very sound reasons. I love your pointy ears, too, can you get some more pics of those? ;)

Puggy kisses

Agatha and Archie said...

STANLEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY..think this through Buddy,reread our blogs,look closely at the pictures,notice all the toys in the bomb shelter(1/2 MINE) that I never see again, notice the evil sly stares....BUDDY THINK THIS THROUGH(call me on my cell phone and we'll do lunch) Archie

Agatha and Archie said...

Stanley,how absolutely lovely.It is so wonderfull to have a lovely little brother to play with and share toys with and watch sleeping in a bed upside down( how mortifying) You have made a fabulous decision) Love Agahta

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi Stanny...
Congrats!! But I have to say I'm a little bit jellyfish...first Suki, now you...I WANT a little brother too!!! Mean Mommy says no...something about being to crazy with other dogs or some silliness like that!!!

I'm really happy for you...will your sissy get her own blog? What will be her Goober name? Will she have an official role in Gooberstan?

Lots of Questions and Lots of Licks, Ruby

Mojo said...

Stanley! I wanna be your sister! I love your wrasslin moves! I'm on the next plane! ok... where's mum's credit card... need a passport photo... maybe should post myself by Airemail

Seriously, your photos are hilarious. If you pulled that glowing-eyed play bow at me I would chase your woolly derriere until you begged for mercy.


Ferndoggle said...

OMDoG SO need a sissy!! I hope she's as fantabulous as my bestest friend & big sister Penny!!

Oh & DON'T LISTEN TO SHERMAN!!! No matter what he says about us. He secretly adores me and I WILL get him to play with me one day.

In the meantime I get plenty of wrasslin' with Penny and we've mastered the art of Bitey Face!

Good luck on your search!


Sophie Brador said...

Stanley!!!!!!!!! I can't think of a better broober. I mean brother. I had a sissy once. She was here for almost two years and then got sick.My mom still misses her, but I don't at all. I'm a total loner when it comes to the living situation. Yes, I'm odd. I love visitor, even if they pee on the floor. I mean, who cares. My ma apparently isn't so keen on it, but whatever.

I can't wait to see your sister. At least if she pees in your house it will be straight down pee and not on the side of the couch pee.

You're going to have to start thinking of Goobertanian names.

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

Congratulations, Stanley! re you parkin it this weekend?

Scruffy & Lacie said...


You have huge Dale teeth. I have no idea why I didn't notice this last weekend at the pawty as your mouth was open most of the time as you poured another dogariti into it. You do need a sister. Lacie and I knocked all of the pillows off the sofa and loveseat today so we could play bitey face and eat crumbs better. It rocked!

Need to go and run outside!

Momo :) said...

Stanley, I think you will be the best brother!! Speaking of brother/sissy talk my pawrents were talking about find new sissy for me... and i can't see it's happening!!

Momo xoxo

pee ess: Do you need one more Cavalier playmate?!? :)

Balboa & Mommy said...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Stan
Those are very good reasons you need a sister! I hope you get her soon!

Kirby said...

Stanley, a sister, how exciting! My mom and dad have teased me with the idea of a little sister, but for you to get one...oh boy!


triple B's said...

hey Stanley, that's so exciting. you will love having a sister. well, we don't really know because we're all brothers, but we know that friends are good. we like to have each other to play with and romp and bark and sniff... gotta sniff every day.

Frasypoo said...

Thats a great idea!But you wont be your girls one and only Stanley,so enjoy these last few days

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Stan,
I am sure you make a good brother! :) Can't wait to see your new sissy. I'm sure your girl will make sure you "approve" of her before bringing her home!

Randi said...

Ah, Stanley! You would make such a WONDERFUL BIG BROTHER! Can't wait to hear the good news when you share your crib!
Love & Licks,

Joe Stains said...

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Stanley,
Yes, lil' sisters are great!! I adore my lil' Moosie although she ummm.. can't exactly play wrasslin with me. You'll make a great brother!!

Christine and FAZ said...

Eeek, look at those teeth! FAZ

fee said...

stan, my mommy has the exact same idea – she wants to get me a brother for some doggie company too! we've been looking at the adoption sites and having serious discussions about it.

The Thuglets said...

The Thugletsx

jaffeboy said...

Looks like you do need a sissy. It will be like pawty everyday then.

They can be a pain thou, I must say. I've got one at home & she can be a real B**ch sometimes.

Hercules said...


If you get a smokin' sister, will you let me have an interest in her? That would be pretty cool to have you and my girlfriend come meet me every Saturday or Sunday at the park!!!!!!!!

Booty scratches and wet kisses,

Angeerah said...

Good luck finding a sister! I think you would have a blast with her.


Finny & Andrea

wally said...

Look, don't tell anyone this, especially not my sissy but as much as I complain about having a sissy and all, I go crazy. Like seriously MENTAL without another dog around. So you should probably get a sissy.

And dude. I need that disco album. We should cut a duet.


Jackson said...

I'm with Simba on this, I don't do sharing. But I think it's pawsome that your mum wants to rescue another dog! I'm keeping my paws crossed for a WFT! J x

the Corgi Girls said...

Goob, we'd think you'd love a sis! You'd be surprised how much fun they really are... always having a playmate, cuddlemate, sleepmate, poopmate, etc is just dandy!

Wishing your mum luck in finding you a wonderful sis!
