Viva La Stuffy

Our buddy, T-Bone Beaseley, declared today National Stuffy Appreciation Day. In honor of our stuffies and their loyal companionship and many sacrifices, we gave ours the day off, but not before we each invited a fave stuffy to have breakfast with us.

I chose my little Pooh and Stella invited the now boneless Funky Chicken I was given by Ruby.

Then we invited them outside for a little play time.

Stella & the chicken went in for a litte tug-a-lug, but Pooh wanted a game of hide and seek. This is Pooh hiding.

Even though I saw him there in the weeds, I couldn't go right up to him. That wouldn't have been very sporting like, so I made like I didn't know where he was. Is he over there?

Maybe he's up on one of those higher branches? Hmmmm...

Ahhh. There he is. Good hiding, Pooh!

And now, a photo tribute to 3 of my largest and most loved stuffies. First up, Giant Pooh!

If you don't watch him, he can get a good wrasslin' move over on you.

This here is Fernando, my ginormous frog!

He's an exceptional cuddler.

And he has googly eyes!

Last, and certainly NOT least, is Piglet: Extra Large!

We're like peas and carrots.

I MUST say that my most fave stuffy of all time HAS to be my sissy, Stella. But, she's not getting the day off from stuffy duty today. No sireee!

Happy National Stuffy Appreciation Day to you all!!!

Goober love,

What a good idea to celebrate our stuffy friends.

Your frog Fernando has to be the best! He has such funny eyes, they made us howl with laughter.

We cannot believe the size of your Pooh Bear and Piglet!!!! You certainly look after your stuffies very well Stanley.

We have that very same bowl like in your first photo! How cool is that! We love all your HUGE stuffies, I'd probably try to hump them so I am not allowed to have big stuffies. Stella sure looks FIERCE in that photo!!

Crikey matie, you sure go for the oversized stuffies. Imagine if the stuffing came out of those. You'd be swamped in white stuff.

Simba said...

I'm not surprised Pooh was hiding after seeing Stella, you go girl. Your stuffies are huge! I wonder how big their brains are?

Simba xx

4xBs said...

hi Stanley, you have some amazing stuffies there. we tend to go for the largest stuffies we can find - each other works very well. the couch is pawsome also. mom says it's just lucky for us that we haven't unstuffed the couch. huh?


Molly and Gertrude said...

Where do you keep so many stuffies Stanley??!! We are so jealous! Great game you had with old Pooh under the tree - you really tricked him didn't you?
We want a big hug with you and the froggie - there is so much love in that bundle we want some of it!

Love Molly and Gertrude

Mack said...

Eric said...

Neat stuffies Stan. Puzzled they are ALL still in ONE piece . . you sure you are properly appreciating them?????

Wagging, Eric

Persephone & Buster said...

Stanley, I think I detect a theme here...actually, a couple!

First, there is SIZE. Yes, your stuffies are truly super-sized. Then, there's the whole Pooh theme (I love Piglet!). Do you have an Eeyore for rainy days?

My favorite two stuffies are currently off-limits. Sephie and Bailey are both in season. Mom has promised to put me out of my misery if the prozac and Jack Daniels don't work.

Yer bud,


Ronin_The_Pug said...

Hi Stan!!! Nice to meet yoooou! Wow you have a lot of super toys! I have a Pooh too! Yup, yup, yup!
Buster told me that you keep in touch with Suki! How is she? How is Joey? And their family? I really miss them!

Have super nice Sunday, Stan!

Momo & Pinot said...

Moco said...

You take such care of your stuffies. I like to shake the brains out of mine. Dawson has a thing about shredding their ears. Foley doesn't play much. He like having a very old man around.

Orable & Charlie said...

Kirby said...

Hi Stanley,

Your stuffies ROCK! I totally want your Extra Large Piglet. That is one cool toy!! So glad you and Stella have so many stuffies to play with!!

Your pal,

BenTheRotti said...

Neko said...

I have got to talk to my Moms about Giant stuffies. Some of yours are so big, it looks like fun. Love,Neko

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Stanley,
Mom loves your giant piglet!! She has the exact same giant Pooh too, though her favourite is really Eyeore..
Moosie wants me to pass you the message that she loves the pic of you searching for mini-Pooh..

Agatha and Archie said...


Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...


You look great appreciating all those Stuffies! Stella looks like she was getting a little aggressive...but there are many ways to appreciate a stuffie...hehehe who am I to judge!

Is the small Pooh like your travel sized stuffie while the big Pooh is your stay at home stuffie!?!

Hope you have a good week!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley
