Sock Monkey Dress Up

My little sissy, Stella, is a...

I mean, it's right there on her bowl, so it MUST be true.
As a result, I've been a little protective of Grandma Sock Monkey lately. Stella's been repeatedly disrobing her and trying to get her to play dress up.

I am constantly battling with her for Grandma's dress.

I've even stooped to playing a little dress up myself in order to get back Grandma's clothes so she doesn't have to walk around au naturale.

My psycho sissy has gone a little too far, though. She's forced the issue and insisted that Grandma Sock Monkey play dress up with her at least once. She vowed she would never give back Grandma's dress unless she played along.

Personally, I think she looks like a little fuzzy French maid in that get up, but that's just me.

Here is the dress up game inverted. Stella wanted to put all of her collars on Grandma, but we finally got her to settle for one.

Stella's pretty proud of her efforts at varying Grandma's style options.

When Stella wanted to take her dress up game a step further, my girl put a halt to it! She had a heck of a time getting Grandma's tail back from the Stellanator, though.

Living with a Psycho Diva,

Stella wants me to announce that November 26th is her one year anniversary as Taffy's girlfriend! She LOVES her little Welsh Taffy Man! Boy, does she love you! Congratulations to the diminutive couple!

Moco said...

That Stella has a career in fashion design. We aren't sure about the tail though. We are glad that the Stanman is always there to try and keep her in check.

Taffy. XXXXX for Stella.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Murphey said...

Um, I like the tail all by itself look, it works for me, if not for poor sock monkey.


Clover said...

Oh Stan, what a funny post! I agree with you that your little sissy looks like a maid in that dress. But she is still cute! (Just like her big brother!!)
Love Clover xo

I heartily approve of Stella's modelling of the sock monkey's tail. The Girl is aghast.

wally said...

Wait a minute. Stella has a boyfriend? That is not me. I'm not sure what to make of this. I guess GooberStan will just have to be my BROMANCE!

wally t.

ps. So glad to have you back, my StanMan!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You look pretty cute in the dress. Don't think little Callie would let us do that to her...
Hope you have a Happy Turkey Day...

Sophie Brador said...

Stanley, My sock monkey is a nudist. I always thought he was okay with that, but maybe he's not. I wonder if I should get him a French maid outfit like Grandma has. Also, my sock monkey doesn't have any lipstick. I wonder if he wants lipstick? I'm getting a bit worried that I've been mistreating and depriving my sock monkey of the life he really wants to lead.


Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

We think you should name your pink stuffy, Goombingo.

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Congrats to Stella and Taffy on their anniversary! Our mom has a sock monkey, but her aunt made it for her many years ago. Consequently, we are NOT allowed to even go NEAR it! That just sucks! It stays locked away in a bookcase. We hope you had a pawsome Thanksgiving! We each had 3 bites of turkey so we were happy campers!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Caz and Ludo the cool dude said...

congrates on your anniversary with taffy I must admit he is a bit of a cool dude just like me.

Poor sock monkey I think he has had a bit of a ordeal hahahaha.

Ludo the cool dude

with love, Madison said...

Hey! Madison wants to come play with you two. She thinks that a sock monkey is a very cool idea, and that a French maid outfit would look equally smashing on her, with her sassy haircut and curly black fur!

Eric said...

Stella, divine stylin'- the monkey would look cool with her tail docked- you were soooo right to remove it. Did you give her Anni Setic first?

Wiry wags, Eric xx

Momo and Pinot said...

Stanley!! We're so impressed by that huge pink flamingo! wow, Great work to find him/her, girl!! :)

Stella, you look so cute in that maid dress.... Congratulations on the anniversary!

Happy Thanksgiving! Any left over turkey?? Let us know!

Momo & Pinot

Joe Stains said...

You better watch out, you might wake up missing an ear or wearing a dress?! Stella is kind of a crazed Doofus!!

Neko said...

I have to agree with you Stan. Dismembering Grandma is pretty psychotic. Love,Neko

Petra said...

Ha! Stella makes me laugh! She does kind of look like a french maid in that dress. Kind of!

Winnie Woo said...

Hi Ho Stan! nice to meet you and thank you famous statesman for visiting my blog.
My editor Laurie says hi too and hopes one day we can get a Stella to play with. That grandma sock monkey looks like such a good sport.

Bumpkin Bears said...

Happy Anniversary Stella and Taffy - it was so nice to meet you and see your fab photos - what a time you had with dress up, I hope that sock monkey's tail got back to her!! Big Beary Hugs, Catherine and the Bumpkin Bears x

Petey said...

Hmmm, Stanley, you better be careful. Stella is taking on some distinctive characteristics of that other Flaky Lakie...Lacie. I swear they are in kahoots. Must be some secret underground Lakie newsletter where they share tips on their destruction.

Just remind her that Santa Paws doesn't bring goodies to doggies on the Naughty list.

Your pal,


Mango said...

Oh my. I don't normally go for terrier gals, but I find myself curiously drawn to Stella in her french maid outfit.
