Merv Leibovitz Strikes Again

Hey, buddies. I'm back. Finally, THEY (you know THEY, don't you? THEY are always saying and doing stuff, and we don't always know whether or not to believe THEM, but we usually do). Anyway, THEY finally got our internet connection back up and kicking. While it was down, my girl had to make a quick trip out of town and took my sissy, Stella, with her. That left me & my cat, Merv, home alone... again. Of course, he got out the camera... and caught me wallowing in my Christmas cards.







I found a major stash of them my girl hadn't opened yet, so I had myself a ball.





Merv's camera angles leave a little something to be desired. He said he took these photos this way intentionally... (He thinks he's so avant garde).





My patience with his instructions was getting low. There were only so many times I could stand to hear Merv say, "Make love to the Christmas cards, Stanley. The camera LOOOOOVES you, man!" Plus, he had "Barry Manilow's Christmas Hits" playing in the background.



I finally snatched the camera from his paws and got off one shot of Merv after he'd had a few bowlfuls of eggnog (my special recipe).







Lovin' my cards,

Stanley

Stanley -

You and Merv need to video shows like Tanner & Joey about the Dog Beer -

Oprah Smorah - Bogart could be a special reporter and tells us all the scoop - You know like a special reports for TMZ but for Gooberstan..

We would love to produce - OOHHH Stella could do a special segment too - You and Merv take some time and talk it over....

Ps, who looked after you and Merv Stanley??

wally said...

Watch out for papercuts, Goob! Otherwise perhaps you should have a suit made out of your cards. It could be a challenge on Project Runway.

Grammie said...

You both look like you could stand a good "sleep it off."

Sophie Brador said...

Clearly, Merv is an auteur. He should consider working in film. I suspect he has a great deal to say. You are a stellar performer! The emotion just oozes from those pics.

Now, here is a big confession. My mom still hasn't send the damn cards, and now she's such a freak case about my new liver situation that she's become even more of a procrastonut. You might get my card sometime around Ukranian christmas in January, but please don't take it as a sign that I don't love you lots. Take it as a sign that my mom is kind of being bad. Did you know she let them put me on the xray table three times yesterday? And take blood too? I mean, wow. What a meanie!

Thank DoG for your smoochies.

Barry Manilow! Yikes! Stan, my boy, steady on the cheesy music, it's not good for the soul.

Anyways, Merry Christmas to you and Stella and Merv and your girl. You are one fine pack.
