Her Own Private GooberStan

My sissy Stella, though a little puny, is a BIG GOOBETTE! She's been exhibiting more and more signs that she is, indeed, a goober of the highest order. For instance, check out her new personal hiding place. This is a photo of the chair our hooman girl sits on when she's at the pooter. It has this flowery cover over it.

Sometimes I can hear a muffled sing-songy voice coming from under this chair cover. When I get closer to investigate, I can hear Stella singing, "Betcha can't find meeeeeeee. Betcha can't. Betcha betcha can't can't."

All I have to do is mention that I'm going to get a snack, and miraculously, her head pops out!

Sometimes it doubles as a nap spot.

She's usually not happy to be awakened (unless it's feeding time for the little beast).

One other thing I've noticed... Stella has a shocking lack of regard for personal space.

I still love the litttle goober, though.

Hey! It's not too late to peemail me your entries for the First Annual GooberStanian Beard Contest. You have until midnight on the 4th to get your entry in (that's GST ~ GooberStanian Standard Time ~ the same as Central Standard Time).

G'day Stanley & Stella,
That's a great hiding place you got there Stella. Wish we could hear you singing.
Stanley, we've remeasured our beards. The pinkies need to get their bums into gear and email you.

Hugs and tail wags

Aww Stella you look so cute hiding under the pooter chair. If only I could come over and keep you company, sigh.

You are teaching her well, Stanley.

Clover said...

Hi Stan and Stella!
Happy new year! Hope you are both doing well. :) Stan - maybe you are passing on your love of snouts to me - I just love that picture of Stella's nose at the end!
Love Clover xo

Petra said...

Stella, you are one clever little girl; what a perfect hiding place you've found! How could you not help but sing in such a peaceful and secluded place?!

And your nose is just beautiful.

I know what "treat" means, too, and I come running when I hear that word.

Jan said...

Stella's cute. You love her. You just don't want to be mushy about it.

Asta said...

I think that's a vewy cozy clevew hidy place my BBFF has found and those pics aof hew awe pwiceless..even if she pushes hew way in, that goobewbaby nose is too cute to wesist..Stanley, I'm embawwaswed to say, I have no beawd to compete with, as a mattew of fact, I may have even less in a few days. Mommi noticed a tewwible bump on my lowew lip(I think it's fwom lack of kisses), anyway,I have to go to the dogtow sat. and maybe they'll cut off not only my beawd, but, gulp, pawt of my lip???I'm scawed..I don't want to be hideous.
smoochie kisses

Sophie Brador said...

Stanley, It seems that perhaps Stella has picked up some Merv-type behaviour by hiding in that chair fort. Too bad you can't fit in there too. You should demand that your girl make a fort for you too. Is she using the dining room table for anything special? She could be! Fort Gooberstan!

I see that Stella has been elevated to BEAST. Very good work, Stella!


Peanut said...

Stella is so cute.

Joe Stains said...

Stella sure is cute, and she certainly doesnt need beauty sleep, but I can understand her not wanting to be disturbed when she is resting. Tanner has no clue about personal space either, its infuriating.

ROSSI said...

Oh Stella.. u cutie pie.. i wanna join u in your safe zone.. can I?


Ling said...

Ooh! I like the first picture of you and stella looking out of the window!

You look soooo beeeeg compared to stella!


Jackson said...

Hey pals, is Stella entering your competition? She's got a nice little beard and tache combo! J x

Hammer said...

Dear Stanley and Stella
Thank you very much for your beautiful Christmas card and photo, which arrived today. We just love the photo of you both. You look so strong and Stella looks so cute. Thank you also for your kind words about Beau. We hope to get to know you better this year too.
Have a great weekend.
Love from Hammer
PS I felt the same about Asta in her Trooper uniform but I sorta said it discrete like. She sure is a cutie.

Deefor said...

Stella looks soo cute. We got your Christmas card. Thanks. Grrreat picture of your nose, Stan. Happy 2008.


Snowball said...

Stella is such a cutie. She is about the same weight as I I wonder how tall is she. Why is she hidding?

I can't wait to see who win this beard contest.


Balboa & Mommy said...

Stella is the cutest little Gooberette ever. SHe's just so awesome.

Koobuss said...

Stella has the right idea. That looks like a wonderful place for a nap. Nice and private and cozy. Who wouldn't like it under that chair?

Stella is also rather beautiful, Stan. You are going to have a hard time protecting your little sister from all the boy dogs once they discover her. Keep her under wraps, Stan. Under the chair is a good place.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Oh Stanley...that behavior is so Lacie. She hides under the deck from Babystan and pops out and drives him so crazy he cries. They're playin' with me now...sometimes I'd just rather chew a bone and let them do their wrassle thing...But at least I know I'm "allowed" to if I want to....hey ask ur girl if she's ever heard of Dales peeing in cars when they're nervous? And like how to you get them NOT to do it? Dale pee in new cars is NOT goin' over well with the rents....thoughts???

Scruffy Mumsie mite try and call ur girl today..

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Stella, Stella...u are such a goobette!!! We Lakies love the under the doesn't matter...just so we're under! You have done a fab job trainin' Stanley...I wish we could teleport u guys through our puter...we would have a BLAST!!!!!

Lakie love, Lacie

Mack said...

Hi Stella & Stan!
I'm like Stella. I can awake from near hibernation when I hear the word "treat"!

jaffeboy said...

Oh Stan, Stella is such a cutie!!! Love the close up shot. She looked like she just woke up with a bad fur day!

Agatha and Archie said...

Well my dearest Stellaette,You by far have been my BEST student ever(maybe the fact that she is your ONLY student,)quiet Archie.You have bombshelter for puppies down pat.And you have also managed to look quite adorable in the act which gives you A+! Next we will work on how to get the cookie meant for your brother..Love Agatha(AND ME TOO....archie)

Luckie Girl said...

Stella is awefully cute...*sighz* Makes me want a sissy too...!

Suki Sumo said...

OMD. I have to tell you something funny. My mom and I totally thought Stella was an Airegirl and were totally confused as to why she is so TINY compared to you. Then in the beard entry we saw that she is a Lakeland Terrier... Well, it all makes sense now! She is a mini-goob! We love it. And we're sort of embarrassed.

We love you, Stan & Stella!!
