Vacation ~ Week of Fantasies

To end the speculation on how Merv & I spent our week of vacation I am now going to reveal the story of our adventures. But first, let me set the stage. It was basically a week of indulgent fantasy on the part of my girl, Stella, and me. Let's start with my girl.

While she was in Colorado...

...taking WAY too many photographs of trees and assorted plant life...

she indulged her fantasy of being a BMW (Burly Mountain Woman). (Don't you just LOVE her photog skills?)

Stella, on the other paw, had this fantasy of having a brotherDale who would adore her and worship at her feet...

and let her walk all over him.

There was only one place for her to get that kind of treatment... at Casa de Hercules!

What did I do with my week? I did something I've been wanting to do for a long time... explore the world of exotic dance! Yes. I became a ChippenDale dancer.

Merv was a little wide-eyed at the prospect of being my manager, but he agreed to the plan pretty readily.

They shaved me down for the promotional posters (ChippenDales likes their dancers very clean cut ~ go figure).

Merv played his part perfectly. He gave them this look (see below), then negotiated an additional 35% for me for the trouble of going bare-chested.

Of course, my mightily thick chest hair all grew back in time for my first performance. The crowds were WILD, let me tell you. But, I felt safe having my manager there on the bar at my feet during every performance.

When I wasn't performing, Merv was spending all of his time working the angles for my new career. He started wearing sunglasses ALL the time, and was seen flashing loads of moolah around!

By the end of the week we were, literally, rolling in dough. Merv took that a little more literally than I did.

Once my girl returned home I talked with her about my possible career move. She is always very encouraging and wanted me to make my own decision. I realized that as happy as I made my fans, that this lifestyle was just not helping me be the best me I could be.

Merv was less than thrilled with my decision.

I've decided that from now on I will only do private shows... for audiences of one. (Hear that Asta & Ruby???)

Goober love,

(The onetime ChippenDale)

Gus said...

Whew Stanley...doesn't that chest hair itch while it is growin' out? Man, that is the cleanest airedale chest ever.


Sophie Brador said...

Stanny! Make you can do the half time show at the Pawlympics. Although, they probably don't have a half time. Hey .... I've recruited Joe Stains to hang in the stands with us. One mention of hotdogs and heckling and he was in. I'm sure he'll guzzle the beer too.


Maggie and Mitch said...

Was this your girls first trip to Colorado, Stanley? It sure is breathtakingly beautiful!
You're such a little devil! I think that's why we love you so much!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hey Stan!

Read my back posts on Sound-Alikes. I think given your new career, I hit you right on the money with my shirtless choice!

Your pal,


P.S. Great fun talking to the First Lady of Gooberstan tonight!

Joe Stains said...

woah dude, I hope Merv invested some of that hard earned cash before you got out of the biz. I can guess you will have a lot of private parties lined up soon. Tanner wants to shave his chest now, eesh.

Huskee Boy said...

Oh wow.. Merv must be the riches kitty around! Moosie says that she can't wait to attend one of your private shows.. Hehehee..

(I got to say that you are one attractive ChippenDALE!)

Hey. You and that muscular bod better stay away from my lovely Paris. I know how chicks dig muscles and well... I'm just not cut out to be ripped. No flexing in her direction!

Deetz said...

A playdate sounds delicious. I have too much energy right now, cuz I have no one to play with but my mum, and she gets too tired to easy.
Love you too, man

Patience-please said...

Oh dear. there are four unconscious whippet girls. Oh and there goes Luciano too!!! (He's special, and he tried out for Brokeback Mountain.) Geez, warn us next time.

Aniemother said...

I think your girl take great nature shots! I'm not sure I'll be going to any of your shows, though..


Noah the Airedale said...

Oh dear my sissies are most disappointed that you wont be going on tour. They were hoping to catch you in Oz. Oh well.


William Tell said...

Whoa, Merv can do The Look better than anyone else I know! hee hee!

Happy Tails,

Deefor said...

That looks like a great career for you but I guess you'd miss out on other things. Maybe the private parties or you could go on dancing with the stars. Merv sure is good with money. I bet all the girl doggies are going crazy.

We love the white trees picture, btw.

Neko said...

I prefer you hairy to shaved. I guess I have spent too much time on Folsom Street with the bears. Love,Neko
