Chi-Town Package of Love

Kirby, my bud from Chicago, was kind enough to send a few gifts to the House of GooberStan to welcome my new sissy, Stella. As you will see from the things he sent, he has an uncanny knack for picking out just the right things for the right pup. And, you have to admit. He's got one of the cutes juicy snouts of all time!

You would think he was my life coach ~ trying to get me organized, or the best personal shopper EVER. Look at this squeaky he sent for me!

Actually, now that I've personalized it, it is one of my most valuable possessions.

Is Kirby trying to tell me something?? (Does he think I'm some kind of player?)

I took one look at this, and knew immediately who it was for.

Naturally, the Stellanator gravitated right for the Chill Pill!

Now she carries it with her almost everywhere. (Wonder why... hehehe).

At this point in the package-opening we had to cage the wiley Stellanator for reasons which shall remain private. I proceeded to investigat the cool stuffy ball with miniature squeaky stuffy balls inside.

Had to do a little quality control testing before I allow my sissy to play with it.

Yep. Arrgghhh, arrrggh... it's completely safe for the Stellanator. It has the Goober Seal of Approval.

Stella absolutely LOVES this thing! She digs all the little balls out then kicks them around. She can play with this thing for hours! (THANK YOU, KIRBY!!!)

Deep inside the package we also found two rope knot balls ~ 1 large one for Stella (she gets high-centered on top of the ball trying to chase it & it just KILLS ME to watch her), and 1 small one for me. We also found these really moist mini treats, which our girl will use for us when we start obedience classes.

Kirby also sent the sweetest note welcoming Stella and congratulating me on becoming a big brother. Thanks, man. We love all the gifts, but your love & friendship means even more!

Extra Goober love & smooches,

Kute Kirby, here's a tiny goober smooch from ME to YOU! muwah!

I know a certain other young lady who would benefit from a chill pill! What a lovely boy Kirby is.

Suki & Joey said...

Cool pressies, Stanny and Stella!

Yeah, I agree with Ruby, we need to know what Stella did! C'mon, spill the beans! OK, you can tell me on Sunday at Disney. Maybe while she's on some baby ride like "It's a small world" you can whisper it to me and Ruby :)

Puggy kisses

You have to get video of Stella with that ball, sounds like it would be hilarious!

William Tell said...

Great toys and presents. You sure have nice friends.

Poor Stella. Every puppy has to spend Time Out, though. I know I did.

Grammie said...

You two are quite the pair. Your girl will have to put some of those toys away and bring them out later. Stella will think she is getting cool gifts again. You on the other hand could not be fooled so easily.

The Brat Pack said...

I don't know how we've missed each other for so long!

Kirby rocks! Very cool stuffies!

the whippet waggle who would be happy to "keep" some for you so your house doesn't get all cluttered. Really. no need to thank us.

wally said...

Sweet! Let me know how the chill pill works. There's someone around here who could use one.


Luckie Girl said...

Oh wow, I must say Kirby chose really appropriate pressies. The Little Black Book to keep track of all your ladies...and a chill pill just for Stella! :) I just hope the pill works. hehhee

Priceless - excellent choices Kirby made!


Molly and Taffy said...


You are indeed a lucky chap. Great to have time out with your new toy while Stella was in her cage. Curiosity is killing us as to why she was in there!!!!!!!!!??????????

Peanut said...

Man you've been getting a ton of packages. That black book suits you.

Snowball said...

Thats a nice package of love that you have received. That is very nice of Kirby.


Kirby said...

Hi Stanley & Stella,

I'm so glad that you guys like your prezzies! Mom dragged me all over the city to all these dog boutiques looking for the perfect gifts. Not that I mind, I love stores that I can go in and they always have treats for the dog that shops. The chill pill for Stella needs to explaining, but I thought you are such a stud with all the DWB ladies that the little black book was perfect for you. Enjoy all your treats, and I'm glad I can keep Stella busy for awhile. Stella busy=happy Stanley!

Your pal,

the Corgi Girls said...

What great presents! I think you need that little black book, you handsome stud, Stan!... and Stella's chill pill, how did Kirby know that would be perfect?! It's so very nice of you to test the toys before letting your lil sis at them... she is getting big, but she is still so adorable, how can you stand it Stan?! We also like how you spread the toys out in front of her cage... BOL... just out of reach!
