Flamingo in Winter

My headless flamingo is alive and well & accompanying me on squirrel patrol in GooberStan (and he doesn't mind the snow).

I'm trying to get a handle on how to carry him around without the assistance of his curved beak.

Stella is woefully unaware of the miracle this is.

My flamingo and I have a lot to catch up on,

Umm, is that flamingo headless??
Never mind, so long as you can continue your relationship with it, that's all that matters.


Murphey said...

Be thankful that Stella doesn't appreciate the amazing flamigo that is, perhaps (we older pups can only hope), it means she'll leave it to you!


Agatha and Archie said...

Uh buddy,how did it get headless??? I bet the littlest one had something to do with it because it is very simialr to my HEADLESS SQUIRREL(this must have been in chapter one) Love Archie

Agatha and Archie said...

Now Stella, you have King of the Goober down very nicely and the headless stuffy was really quite advanced but you did FABULOUSLY for someone your size!!! You are very ready for the next chapter.....Call me on my cell phone...we'll talk..Love Agatha

Ruby Bleu said...

Hey my Stanny...
Aren't you cold in the snow??? And I didn't think flamingos like snow...hmmm.

I've missed you my Stanny. I hope you are well and Stella isn't messing with you too much!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Whoa. Was he buried in a pet cemetary? That makes me want to sing that Ramones song.


Maggie & Mitch said...

Look at that beautiful white stuff! It looks so wonderful! We sure wish we were in your yard racing around with you and Stella and the headless flamingo tossing snowballs at each other!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Peanut said...

snow snow we want snow. Is that headless flamingo okay? Poor thing.

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Stan,
It sure looks very COLD. Is there some way to get Mr Flamingo a new head? hehe..DOn't they sell new heads at Walmart or Targets? LOL!
PS : Did the mailman bring you anything yet??

4xBs said...

wow snow! that's so cool. and how did the flamingo lose his head (as if we can't guess)? toys don't usually care if they come apart. it's the humans who have a problem with this. it's difficult for them to understand.


Frasier said...

That flamingo is beakless !!!

Sparky said...

You got snow?!?! That's not fair! It still hasn't snowed over here.

Does Stella like the snow? It must be her first time seeing it!


Ike said...

That snow looks disgusting.

Huskee Boy said...

Snow!! You have got snow!! It's totally cool... I wish I can get some nice white snow here rather than rain.. sheesh..

Gus said...

snow! I love snow. I miss snow. I want snow. This part of azrizona doesn't GET snow. bummer. Enjoy it for me please.

Kirby said...


I'm so happy to see the Flamingo has risen again. Even if it is headless. Every dale needs a partner when on squirrel patrol. So glad you two are back together again.

Your pal,

Henry Helton said...

Did you know that the pink flamingo factory went out of business last year? That's what My Lady said. Chew sparingly my friend.

Lorenza said...

who cares if the flaming is headless! Its your partner and you love him!
Snow!! I go under my blankie right now!
Have a good night

Faya said...

With or without head....who cares. He is back ! How was Stella when she saw the snow ?
Kisses, Faya

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Asta said...

Awe you mad at me ow haven't answewed me in two days, even thoug I wite, and i see you witing to evewyone else,sobsob...
smoochie kisses fwom a bwoken heawted ASta
pee ess. I hope you had fun in the snow

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Good heavens, Stanny...I hoped u wrote to Asta...I hate when she sobs like that!
So where's the flamingo been? Thought u gave it a decent burial. Can u really not go to the flamingo store and buy one with a head? I mean...they're probably on sale for the winter.

We so got the short end of the deal for Thanksgiving. Camp was a blast. Can u hear the sarcasm? Can u feel the love?

And Seymour ate so much he has flat wheels.

Sorry, Stan. I have no pillow tonight as I destuffed it today and it's makin' me cranky....

Give big kisses to the Stellagirl...hope Sherman knows just what he's gettin into.

Wiry complicated handshakes...

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Stella...u are learnin' fast, Girlfriend!
Sitting on the goobertummy is an excellent way to get him to say yes to whatever u might need. Bouncing on it can expedite the process.

Keep up the excellent training.
Lakie licks, Lacie

Koobuss said...

Hi Stan,

Stella looks just like a miniature replica of you, Stan. Has anybody ever told you that?

It must be very difficult to carry around a headless flamingo in the snow and to do it in such a manner so that Stella isn't interested. You are quite remarkable, Stan. That is no small accomplishment.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Boo said...

stanley, u didn't tell us it's snowing there! or did u?

let's have snowball fight with stella!

wet wet licks


Joe Stains said...

I never knew flamingos liked snow. Then again I never knew flamingos can live without their heads. Things are strange in gooberstan!

Cassidy said...

Me likes your flamingo Stan. I thinks me is now bigger girl than Stella!

Simba said...

Ferndoggle said...

That flamingo is as big as Stella!!

I wish we had's supposed to get blustery this weekend tho! Yipee!!!!


Lenny said...

I'm glad the flamingo is still going strong, Stanley! I can't remember - does the flamingo have a Gooberstan name? Flamingoober?

Your friend, Lenny

Amber-Mae said...

Wooow, snow! Hey, mail me some snow ok? There's no snow here in my country so I wanna taste & feel the snow. Hopefully when it reaches here, it's not melted.

Love licks,

While on house patrol, we discovered that Mom and Dogdad have two -- count 'em two -- plastic pink flamingos on a shelf in the closet. We asked how they got them and why we couldn't play with them. It seems that, before they got married in 22 degree December weather in St. Louis, Dad's brothers and sisters-in-law dressed the flamingos in wedding garb -- one a bride and one a groom -- planted their spindly legs on some artificial turf, and gave them to Mom and Dogdad as a tease.

So I guess they're off limits to us terriers. Anyway, they both still have their heads.

Enjoy your headless phenom, and the snow!!! (We'd love to have some snow, if you have any extra you can spare.)

Jake and Just Harry

Asta said...

Grammie said...

Sometimes we must accept those we love for what they are, not what we want them to be. Pinkie will bring you joy far into the future.

Clover said...

Stanley, you are such a tall boy! Those photos show your height very nicely. It's a good thing your headless flamingo doesn't mind the snow, so you can hang out outside together.
Love Clover xo
P.S. OMD the king of the goober picture is sooooo cute!!

The Airechicks said...

Oh Stanley -

Maybe you need a NEW flamingo -
You have loved him so much

Whoa the snow looks fun - where are the silly shots of Stella??

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

We're glad Stella is finally bigger than your head, dude! We think you need to take up flamengo dancing! You'd be HOT!

B.T.Bear (esq.) said...

Great to see you have your flamingo back!

Taffy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hercules said...


My Mom says you look SO cute all fuzzy haired in the snow carrying around your headless PINK flamingo!

Dude, maybe you need a new flamingo? Or do you and Mr. Flamingo go too far back to toss him aside and go for a younger one with a head? I understand. I feel the same way about my long legged fuzzy that is only three legged now!

Love, Herc

ps tell stella she is awfully cute in the snow too.

Momo & Pinot said...

Pink flamingo is still alive!! Yay!!

Jackson said...
