Sweet Swissy

What would possess a goober like me to pose for a photo like this?

Well, it's my honorary Swiss Aire-sissy, Faya! My sweet Swiss Sissy. My Swissy. Isn't she a bootiful smiley girl? I think we almost look like we're related (except for my snout curls).

Last week I found this on my front porch.

It's a package that had winged its way to me all the way from Fayaland (Switzerland). I feel so international. My girl made me wait until she had time to watch me open it, then I tore right into it. I like labels...

and box corners.

Maybe my goober drool will get this package open.

Yep. The drool does the trick. The box is starting to yield to my ministrations.

Oh, my package, bring forth your secret Swiss goodness.

Of course, I went for these big bones first.

I also discovered this amazingly wild looking squeakie guy.

But then my girl noticed some bootifully colorful bananas in the box. She liked the Babushka look that Tadpole pulled off with a new banana I had sent him, so she had me pose Babushka-like after I read Faya's card to me.

That first photo didn't capture all 3 bananas, so here's another one where you get a better idea of just how bootiful all of these bananas are.

I got camera shy for a minute & wouldn't look at my photographer.

I snapped out of it, though, and willingly vogued for the camera!

It was time to get down to some serious chewing!

Here you have a better look at that crazy-haired squeaky and of those fabulous bones I was wanting to chew. There were some other goodies in the box, but I don't know where they are in this photo.

Still working on the package.

Hey! You gonna help me here, goobette, or are you just gonna keep snapping your little camera?

Having received no cooperation from the puparazzi, I refused to be photographed.

My girl took my bananas away and relegated me to the backyard with my tasty bone.

Posing instead of gnawing.

Ahhh. Pawfection!

Sweet Sissy Faya!! You are so good to me. Thanks for all the presents! I love them, but I love you more, sissy o' mine! You're the BEST!


I am also playing catch up on a few tags. My girl, Ruby, tagged me to show the vehicle that best represents my personality and to list five nicknames I have for my hooman girl.

If I were any vehicle out there, I would probably be this ->

A vintage Vespa scooter. First off, it's a classic. It is great for zipping around for short trips, but not ideal for long roadtrips. (I'm more of a sprinter, not a marathoner). It is fuel efficient like me, and it always seems to make people smile when it goes by.

I love this cool Vespa patch.
Now for the names I call my hooman girl.
1) Girlie
2) Goobette
3) Girloober Girl
4) My Chica
5) Goober Butt

I hope everydoggie, Girl Girl & Moosie all have a gooberlicious day!

Stan, she's gonna kick ur gooberbutt for calling her that. Why don't you go with umm...Your royal highness...that gets treats, Dude....


Scruffy & Lacie said...

Sorry...back again. Thought the ladies head scarves were a separate post. Um...I'm barkless, Stan. Get a grip, Man! Scruffy

Oh Stanee...I just had to horn in here...don't listen to Scruff...heck, most of the time he doesn't even spell his name right. I love that you are willing to acknowledge your feminine side...or perhaps I should rephrase. It takes a strong masculine dog to want to please a good female friend and his Mumsie...(the one with the camera.) You rule!


Grammie said...

You are truly a Goob among Goobs. Who else could pull off the that milk maid look and be a vespa. Life is truly GRAND.

Lenny said...

What a nice present from your Swiss Miss Sis!

Your friend, Lenny

wally said...

Stanley, I think that officially wins the words longest post! And it was totally worth it! You look AWESOME in the bananadananas. And if you need to do an improptu performance of Fiddler on the Roof--you're set!


p.s. My ma ape calls me WooberButt!

Maggie & Mitch said...

You look very motherly in your babooshkas!
Faya is such a sweet girl! New stuff for the Stan Man!
Have you measured your beard yet, Stanley?
I got groomed today so I need to measure mine and see if it grew overnight!

Love ya lots,

Faya said...

Oh ! What did your girl promise you to stay so quiet with the bandanas on your head ? I will never, never, never accept this.... well maybe if there are some ice-creams after the photo shooting...Can you e-mail me an original picture of you with the bandanas so I can print it and put on the wall in the front of my bed ? Please..... Kisses, Faya
PS : those bones are the best !
PS (yes again)...: I have a chat-box on my new blog !...

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

Hey, Stanley! You look like Goober on the Roof in those bananadanas! Tevya's youngest, in fact! Sooo Cute!

Sunday in a crowd of AireKings! Wow! Sounds great! 10:30 till when?

Butchy & Snickers said...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Stan
Great presents from Faya! sure she loves you!
I like your Babushka style!
Have a good night

Kirby said...


Those bandanas are too cool! You are so international now. How did you manage to restrain yourself with those bones? I'm a bit of a psycho with bones, myself. He He! Oh, I love the Vespa. They're so cool and they never get stuck in traffic!


Frasier said...

Hi Stan
Thats some good stuff there.Though I think those scarves would look good around your neck!
Mommy said that if you ever go to India you can buy a Vespa real cheap but will probably have to pay an arm and a leg in customs to bring it back!!!

Moosie said...

Hello Stan Stan,
You can write me ANY song you want and I will be so happy! I will squeak.. I mean sing.. the song all the time!
You look so handsome with your bandanas!! Wuff you..

Ike said...

I'm glad that you can openly express your metrosexuality.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Momo :) said...

Stanley Boy!!! What pressie you've received from Faya!! She's so sweet and found excellent pressie for you! These bandanas look great on you.

I love Vespa, especially vintage one! You definitely look cool on it. My pawrents kept talking about getting one then got a second thought coz our summer is super short. :(

Thank you for your compliment about my eyelashes. :) Lady needs to get them trimmed? Wow, mine has looked the same length since i was a puppy. My mom always tells me that I am lucky coz I don't need a mascara.

Have a great weekend!!
Momo xoxo

Ferndoggle said...

Those are some fantasticable presents!! You pull off the banana look very well...a little fem, but manly at the same time.


Sophie Brador said...

Stan!!!!! You are totally my drummer. Auditions were rained out, but you were a paw in anyway. Same with Wally. If I can't organize another date, we might have to forge ahead as a trio.

One thing though. You can wear all the bananas you want, but I really think a punk drummer has to go shirtless.

Sophoober Bradoober

Sadie-n-Boatie said...

Gooberstan, we finally stopped by. I, Sadie, have to say I love your curls--you are very nice and curly like me. Mum even said you looked like me withthe head scarves. Boatey is a total goob, too!

Sadie and Boatey

Clover said...

Hi Stanley!
Aw, I love your sequence of pictures of you opening the package.
What a fantastic crazy-haired squeaky!! Looks like a lot of fun.
I am still laughing about "goobette" - I love it!!
Love Clover xo
P.S. I am pretty interested in getting my own goober name. Do I have to be a certain age to get my own?

Jackson said...

Hey Stan, I'm loving the banana look. Do you think it might catch on? Maybe you've started a new trend! J x

Koobuss said...

Hi Stan,

What nice presents you got from Faya! You look very mature in your babushkas. The colors are nice, too.

That's a pretty cool mode of transportation, too. As for the names you call your girl, I guess they could be worse.

Did you hint on Scruffy & Lacie's blog that you are going to get a sister?

Koobuss Kisses,

Tadpole said...

Stanny! The bananas are incredibly fashion-forward! Soon everyone will follow our example and don them as they skip around the town! Bravo, my man!

I understand the shyness though... it's hard to be on the cutting edge of fashion. Sadly, sometimes the world just isn't ready for future progress.

ROSSI said...

Hey Stanley!.. great pressies u have there!.. but u look so.. aa...eeerr... aaa.. sissy?.. with that bandanna tied like that!.. hahahah.. but is funny though!..


Simba said...

I can steal you one of those Vespa things from Fat fat Daddys shop if you like.

Simba xx

someone needs to invent a swiss doggy knife that can be operated without thumbs so we can get packages open easier!
