StellaFest Part 2

WHOA! Goobery greetings & salutations!

Since this is my very first birthday EVER, I had no idea what to expect. This whole birthday thing has been an odyssey of friends, food, presents, and loads of love! The celebration has been going on now for almost 2 weeks and I want to share some more of it with you. Are you ready?

Lets start with my FAB birthday cards and all of the poems, limericks and songs I got. I've been cracking up ever since they started rolling in! The first one is from my buddies Maggie & Mitch. (Sorry. I couldn't figure out how to load it onto my blog so it would show up so you can't see it.)

This is part of Agatha & Archie's card to me. It was a video card, which my crazy girl can't figure how to load here. But this is the photo and the caption they sent with it!

Dear Stella,It's hard to believe it is your birthday already!! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! Hope you get lots and lots of treats and goodies and toys!!(what more could a girl ask for????) Give the Goober a kiss for us..Love and kisses to you birthday girl! Agatha and Archie(oh and PL2)

This here is a poem from my pal, Deetz! He chose my Audrey Hepburn photo to accompany the poem.

A Birthday Poem for a special little terrier girl
I am not very good, but will give it a whirl.

She has a big brother named, Stan
Who loves and protects her, as best as he can.

Ms. Stella so loved by all who have met her.
With those curls and button nose, she even makes the kitty’s purr.

She walks with grace, the same way Audrey Hepburn did.
And plays with toys and bitey face, just like any other kid.

This birthday poem, I wish her well.
Please don’t party so hard you wind up in jail.

But, if you do, I’ll break you out.
For I am a Stormy’s mission army scout.

Wear your bandanna and collars very proud.
And your birthday party makes you feel like your floating on a cloud.

With your permission, may I kiss you on the nose.
Then maybe later we can play a little bitey toes.

Happy Birthday my Little Ms. Stella
From your pal, Deetz, one goodlooking hansome Fella.

Happy Happy Birthday To You!!!


Look at this sweet sweet card from Rocky & Lacy Lulu!

Being my fashion icon and terrier girl mentor, Asta knew just what type of card to send me.

My fabulous friend, Ruby Bleu, wrote me a special song to the tune of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cindi Lauper.

I come in from running outside
Stanley and my Girl says it's my barkday tonight
I can't believe that I just turned 1...
I'm Stella and I like to have fun
It's my first barkday and I'm gonna have fun!!!

Last year, I was a pup looking for a home
My Girl says Stanley we could give her a good life
Oh I can't believe what a lucky girl I was
I'm Stella and I like to have fun
It's my first barkday and I'm gonna have fun!!!

That's all I really want
Lots of bloggy friends and a loving home too
I'm Stella and I like to have fun
It's my first barkday and I'm gonna have fun!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

This is Girl Girl's card to me. Can you see her giving me a birthday smooch?

Noah, Willow, Lucy & Tess came up with this inviting limerick for me. (How did they know I LOVE beer?)

Stella lives in the States
She & I are great mates
I wish shelived here
Where we'd share a beer
Go running around the estate.

This card is from Boy & Baby.

I also received some gooberlicious presents from Noah, Willow, Tess & Lucy; from Momo & Pinot; and from Mr. T-Bone Beaseley, and a very special birthday card from my boyfriend, Taffy. My girl put them all in one box for me to see how I'd handle opening it. The presents themselves will be revealed in my last installment of StellaFest, but here are a few photos of me investigating the goods!

Since the over-the-top approach was NOT working I knocked the box over and went for the side approach.

Ahhhh. Much better.

Maybe I could live in here.

Don't fret! My big hairy Stanley wasn't left out in the cold!

Thank you everydoggie, hammie & kitty who stopped by to give me birthday LOVE!

I LOVE ALL OF YOU with all of my goober heart!

One happy goobette,

Kisses and hugs

Sophie Brador said...

Oh Stella, I can't believe that all this birthday jazz has been going on and I have just been completely daft about it all. Don't worry. I am all moved into my new house now and mom is almost half way through teaching her summer course and then she can spend more time helping me properly celebrate my friend's b-days. So can we stretch yours out just three more weeks?


Joe Stains said...

PS. If you want to make it so that the picture moves on your blog, you can upload it to a site like photobucket and then use the code there (don't upload to blogger if you want the pic to work).
