Do Blondes Have More Fun?

Just recently my girl said to me, "I love you, my red-headed goober!" It caught me off guard, you see, because I've always thought of myself as a blonde. (Not that it matters either way.) But for all that it doesn't matter, it's shaken how I think of myself. Do I look like a redhead to you? Am I having less fun than I thought I was?

My girl said that I have very blonde highlights on my snout, but that all of my fur around my nose, my eyes, and on top of my head is red. Merv said it creates an optical illusion of blonde-ness. (He said he can give me an overall blonde look if I want it.)

Not to worry. While I'm NOT having an identity crisis here, I AM having Stella check out the situation.

From your apparently red-headed goober friend,

Aw Goob, Blonds do have loads of fun, but I'm fairly certain that red heads have loads of fun too. And if you stop to think about it for a minute, maybe you are a blond redhead and get to have twice the fun. In fact, you could take to listening only to Blond Redhead - their new album is pretty good. And just so you know, their dog is a Papillon, not at all blond and appears to have loads of fun too.

Red, blond, brown, black or doesn't matter because I woof you Stanny!

Lots of Licks, your Ruby Bug

Penny & Poppy said...

Stanley, you are the perfect Aire-color! We have some blond highlights, too, when our hairs grow out a little bit. We haven't noticed any change in the fun level between having the highlights and not!

Poppy & Penny

Petra said...

You are a very handsome redhead, Stanley. I have some red in me, but it's not as pretty as yours.

Maggie & Mitch said...

If we compare you to Stella you look a wee bit more red!
We've always heard it said that redheads have oodles of fun and that's you to a "T"!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Peanut said...

red is a good color. Pappy's hair is red and he got grammie so it can't all be bad :)

Amber-Mae said...

Oh yeah. blondes do have more fun! I mean, I am an example, hehehe!

Love licks,

Deetz said...

I am thinkin that red is actually in. I am dark brown and a blondish color on my face. My face colors keep changing all the time. And there is something going on with my ears too? they are freakin out on me.

Gus said...

Stanley: My sister E.Beth's hairdresser has a name for your hair color. He calls it a "shaded eight color weave" and my muzzer calls it "EXPENSIVE"

Only your hairdresser knows for sure

Molly and Taffy said...

Hi Stan

We like your blonde highlights. I (Molly) have blonde bits too but my Mum calls me her black and tan girl.
Your little sister looks as if she is taking her responsibilities extremely seriously while studying your hair colour.

Molly... and Taffy who sends loads and loads of love to his Stella. xxx

Suki Sumo said...

Whatever color it is it totally suits you, Stanley. You're one handsome goober!

Snowball said...

No matter Blonde or Red Headed, I think you are still very handsome.


Orable & Charlie said...

remember, Stanley, red-headed is better than red-eyed!

Bogart said...

I've always thought of myself as black and tan... I know that doesn't help...


Kirby said...

Hi Stanley,

I'm multi-colored like you. My groomer says I retained my copper around my eyes, my ears and on top of my hair. Everywhere else that is 'tan' is blonde. I think it's just how we Airedales are supposed to be. He he!

Your pal,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Stan!
Like Ruby said... we love you exactly like you are no matter your color!
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

My Dad has red hair, and Mom calls him a fire monkey. I don't know if that is a nice thing or not, but he seems to have a lot of fun. I do love blonds tho, like Sophie.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

I love you whatever color you are Stanley... Oh dear.. I've got lots of grey hair. Do you think I'm old??

Harry said...

I too have got more red headed since my recent Airedo. Since ma and pa are both redheads, I think it's fairly fitting.

Simba said...

Mummy says no, but I disagree. I am more blonde and I have way more fun then her.

wally said...

Patience-please said...

We lost you guys! Something is screwed up on the Bloglines feed. So relieved that it was the feed and not that you had done a Marvin on us! PHEW!!!!
Dawg, Stan, you know how much the humans would pay to get that bodacious red with blonde tips??? They would spend all of our bone money!

Mack said...

What ever color hair you have -
you are very handsome!

Noah the Airedale said...

Well matie it's like this. Some of us dales are reddish and some of us are blonde. I am a blondie through and through but my sissie Tess is more reddish. Either way it's all good and didn't I hear somewhere that reds the new blonde.

Hugs and tail wags

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Stanley,
We luv your red hairs. You're supposed to have red ones silly. If you want some highlights, we can send you some of our white hairs from our stripping & you can use some hairspray to stick them on your head, tee hee!!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Moco said...

Grammie loves red hair. She says that you are much more handsome as a red head then you would be as a blonde. I don't think I would let Merv touch my curls.

Persephone & Buster said...

hey red is good stanley -- it's "unique"..... like being blue...
it's really fun being blue! we're irish blue dogs .. so don't stress on this.. red is a good color for you to be! i like red heads....
your friend, ms.Persephone

Mango said...

I think blonde is a state of mind (in which case, you do qualify).


Agatha and Archie said...

Blonde,red,black ,tan any way you look at it you are one handsome dude....Love A+A

Deetz said...

Stanley Dude.
I tree'd a raccoon this morning, it was awesome.

Finni said...

Hmm, my mum sometimes (frequently) says she's having a 'blonde moment' but just before that she always says 'Ooooops'.
What did Stella come up with? Looks like you two are having fun whatever the colour.

Finni xx

Sparky said...

I think red-heads rock, so no worries there!


Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Goober Stan!!!

I think you look better than a red head or a blonde! See, you have the best of both worlds now! You have the fun blonde side and the independent, spunky red head side! How exciting! You get to be both!

I have 3 tones...I'm a red headed, blonde snouted, black necked four legged human! Woohoo for having different colors! We can be whichever personality that we want!

the Corgi Girls said...

Stan! I (Izzie) am a redhead! Being a redhead is way cool...

We've missed you pals! How is your mum doing with her thesisissessess? Our mom is slow going, sheez, we just wish she would finish already!

BOL! We love you!
M & I

River said...

You've got to be a redhead Stan - they DEFINITELY have more fun!!!!!!


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Ahh, the Goober!!!

We think we're havin' a pawty...

Deetz said...

Hey Stanley and Stella...have a great weekend.

Sophie Brador said...

Oh my manly Stanley, You know me. Always shaking up worlds. With you, my darling, I would be nothing if not impulsive. But I'd have to give some serious consideration to smooching your girl. It's just the way I am.


Clover said...

Hi Stan,

I think of your fur as strawberry-blonde. How about that?!

I am glad you like my wrinkle-head picture - I asked mom to post it just for you over in Gooberstan!

Love Gooberclove xo

Charlie said...

Red is good, Stanley. That's what my mom says!

4xBs said...

hi Stanley and Stella, we think you could be a red head or a blonde - your girl is right. your hair is red with a lot of blonde highlights. we think that you are having plenty of fun, so don't despair.


Rudy said...

Yeah, I'd say you have the best of both worlds, blonde AND red. I'm brown-ish, but I could've been 'blue' which is more gun-metal gray, so I think I'm having more fun than the other possiblity in us Bedlingtons.

However, I think your little girlfriend is HOT! (don't tell Josie -- she's in season and she's pretty hormonal right now so she might hurt me)


Momo & Pinot said...

Stanley Boy!!
You have boootiful hair colour! You've got all bootiful colours in one! :)

The mover will be here on next Friday but we haven't packed anything yet! Lazy hooooomans! :D

You know mom is very exciting coz Barry will perform in Toronto after his show in your city!!

Momo & Pinot

Koobuss said...

You are a very handsome red-head, Stanley. And if you were a blond, you'd be a very handsome blond.

And I am not really sure that you are a goober either. You have a great deal of dignity and class to me, Stan.

Love you and lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...


Tell Stella hi!!! She is mighty cute she is! Maybe sometime you both can come down...then the three of us and Noah's clan will help defend my house from the kitties. And THEN!!!! We can come by your house and defend it from the kitties! Those silly felines won't even know what hit them!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Neko said...

I doubt you will lack any fun with these recent developments. Love,Neko

Pacco de Mongrel said...

Ike said...

I think you're strawberry blonde!

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Hmmmm, we think you are more of a red head. But does it matter cos you look good.

Boy n Baby

Martha said...

Red is the *in* color. My Mom used to dye her hair red, probably because she wanted to look as cute as you. Love, Martha

Nanook and Pooka the Newfoundlands said...

Don't worry Stanley - our Mama is a redhead, and she says the blondes only THINK they have more fun - but the readheads are the ones who know where it's at!

BenTheRotti said...

A Strawberry Blonde.. and a very handsome one at that..
