Goodies of an International Nature

How did we acquire this FAB doofus bird?

Why is this hump-happy caterpillar now living in GooberStan?

Who sent us this superb stash of gooberlicious noshables?

We were lucky to have our monumentally gooberish buds ~ Sherman, Penny & Lola (THE DOJA - Dogs Of Jackman Ave) ~ as partners in the first annual DWB's International Goodie Exchange! WHOA! Did they do us right or WHAT?!

This Doofus Bird caught my attention right away. You can see that he got me off of my feet (like the hang time?) and aireborne for a nice game of tag. Then we got down to some serious stuffie testing ~ snuggle time.

This bird is almost as much of a camera hound as I am.

Stella wanted to rumble me for him, but I let her have a little visitation time with the bird. She invited him into her new condo (she got the new digs for her birthday).

The gay pride caterpillar even showed up for the party.

I have a feeling that anytime during the next week, this is how you'll find me and the Doofus Bird... stationed by the front windows on squirrel patrol.

Stella has taken ownership of the caterpillar.

I was just going to ignore it, you know? But, I had to have me a taste of that rainbow colored worm.

Speaking of taste, if there's one thing Sherman, Penny & Lola know about, it's how to eat! Our girl let us try out these free-floating treats we found in the box amongst all the other goodies.

Notice the big bubble of goober drool on my bottom lip? This chew was seriously tasty. If you biggiefy the photo you'll see just how monumentally juicy my snout really is!

Stella repaired to her condo to have a solitary chew.

Now for the weird stuff. Sherman, Penny & Lola's mom sent Stella a bag of Sherman Stink. Here she is checking it out.

She kept sticking her nose deeper and deeper into that bag.

I heard her say something about wanting to suck all the Sherman Stink she could out of his fur sample. I think she's going to recarpet her condo with it.

Stella was so enraptured by the experience I thought I'd give it a whirl. I eagerly anticipated the heights to which I was about to be transported.

All it took was one good whiff! I'm thinking that bag is filled more with Stink than with Sherman! Ewwwww weeeeee!!

You've gotta be kidding me.

Stella & I had the same idea when it came to the note Sherm, Penny & Lola sent. We both wanted to eat it.

Can you really blame us?

Sherman! Penny! Lola! You guys are the cat's pajamas! We LOVE our box of love, and are overwhelmed with gooey and wiggly feelings for all three of you!

Stella decided she would use the little squeaky duck in the package to practice what she'd do on a date with Sherman. See how she's going in for the smooch?! I've gotta say, I'm a little embarrassed and queasy here.

Chef & T-Bone Beaseley, this was a brilliant idea of the highest order! We LOVE the way you guys think. Thanks for organizing all of this and for being patient as we waited for our lazy girl to let us open our package!

Goob love,
Stanley & Stella

Uh oh...Dot Spot isn't going to be very happy with Stella moving in on her territory!

Those prezzies are totally pawsome. The DOJA really know how to do it right!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Simba said...

What great toys.

Ferndoggle said...

We're SO glad you guys liked everything (esp my stink!). Lola thought that Stan would have a total blast with an indoor goofy bird to play with and it looks like she was right!

This was a great idea & we're extremely happy we got to shower you with love...and food and stuffies.

Smooches to my little Stella Louella (and Lola & Penny send sloppy licks to Stanny...very sloppy!)


Maggie & Mitch said...

I wonder if the Doofus bird and your pink flamingo will get along?! What nice gifts the DOJA sent!
We just love your serious eyebrows, Stanley!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Sophie Brador said...

The DOJA! That's great. Nice goodie pack. If I hadn't just received my own special goodie pack from you Goobs, I'd have to be jealous. Don't you find that the gay pride caterpillars are always up for a party? I'm not surprised he would show up at Stella's condo. More evidence that she is a diva in the making.

I simply LOVE the bird. It actually makes me think of you and your pink flamingo. What happened to your pink flamingo? Do you still have part of him? Do you need a new one?

And Stanny, is that a swanky new hairdo you're sporting? You're looking pretty chic.


Amber-Mae said...

Those are some nice pressies DOJA sent!

Moco said...

What a haul you guys made. That Gooberstan is sure the place to be. We are hoping that the condo fees are reasonable for those new digs that Stella got. That goofy bird looks like a member of our family.

Deetz said...

Wow, that bird was cool looking and the crazy catepiller....WOW!!!
That was a great package and treats too...and stinky hair. Thats just too much, they put alot of love in that package for sure.

Lenny said...

Awesome action shots and presents, Stan!

Your friend, Lenny

Persephone & Buster said...

What a singular sight! You guys--TERRIERS, no less--remained still enough for the camera!

If a doofus bird and spectral pupa showed up in OUR domain, no shutter speed would be sufficient to record the carnage. We Kerries just can't stay still. Hats off to your self-discipline!

Looks like Santa Doja treated you superbly!

Goofy said...

They are so kind to send over those pawsome toys..

You sure are having fun and busy with them.


Joe Stains said...

Dang dude, Stella is one smitten girly. I really like that Doofus bird but I dont think he'd last long with a real doofus, he'd have his eyes off in no time. I wish I could smell some Sherman stink, I will probably dream about that tonight!!

the Corgi Girls said...

Those are THE coolest presents EVER! Wholy Schmokes!


M & I

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

What great presents the DOJA sent to you! We would love to get ahold of that doofus bird! And you even got some Sherman Stink? Wowie! I think Penny and Patches would freak out over some of that! Since they like to eat their own piles of fur from the Furminator, the would go crazy over Sherman's!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Petra said...

I biggified your picture and saw the big bubble of goober drool on your bottom lip, Stanley, and about peed on the spot. That was SO cool!

This was indeed a very happy day for you and Stella!

Murphey said...

What about those other treats, they looked tasty! I'm hungry just looking at them. And we're not allowed to have squekers, I squek them until the lady shouts ENOUGH! Too bad...


Ike said...

I would live to disembowel that bird!

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

What pawsome gifts! The DOJA really knows how to choose great toys n treats.

Hi guys!
Great pressies from the goodie exchange! You did a great job of showing how you are enjoying them!
Love Clover xo

wally said...

OHMYGOSH! Does Stella have a crush on Sherman, too? It's ok, he's totally one of my bromances. But Stella's really into the May-December romances, eh?

All that stuff is AWESOME. Beef heart RULES.


ps. My ma ape is not allergic to stings but she swells up A LOT really fast but it goes down after 30 minutes or so. It's more amusing than painful--she's lucky because we have a lot of stingers around here. And she's always shooing them away from me when I'm trying to catch them.

pps. Oscar was wondering if he might be an -oober, too? But he would be the Ooober.

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