Steroid Flamingo

I have to apologize to all of you for my girl. She has been remiss in helping me visit the blogs of all of my friends, and I thought I was working my way up to never forgiving her until she brought home the most magnificent stuffie I've ever seen.

I KNOW, man! Can you believe it?! My hooman girl really is the premiere stuffie huntress of all time! She finds the most curiously amazing and freakishly large stuffies I could ever imagine. (Some brain-addled hooman pup gave him to a thrift store where my girl simply scooped him up. I don't get hoomans sometimes.)

Since he (my gargantuan flamingo friend) and I have just met, we're going to spend a little time getting to know one another before I give him a name.

Whatdya think? Should I skip the preliminaries and just bestow upon him a goober name already? Maybe Flamoober? Or, do you have a name suggestion for me?

Let me just say that Flamoober has already made it clear that he has NEVER ever taken performance enhancing drugs, nor has he ever dealt with Roid Rage. Don't let the post title fool you into thinking he's enhanced in any way. He's all natural... and he's ALL MINE! (See? He's already willing to cuddle with me. What more could I want?)

Viva la flamingo,

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

What is WRONG with some people? Who, in their right mind, would give up such a pawsome 'mingo? Flamoober seems to be just the right size for you, Stanley! Maybe he's too big for the little Goobette! Don't count on it, though! You're very lucky your girl didn't decide to save it for Christmas!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Ohhh BOY are we jealous. Although Reilly can only think how much wonderful stuffie guts he could get out of Mr. Flamingo if he accidently made him "spolde....


Sophie Brador said...

That is the most excellent, flaming flamingo I have ever seen. And he seems more than willing to give you some bromance. I say, Flamoober is the perfect name.

Petra said...

But it's not even Christmas yet!!!!!!! Flamoober is perfect for you, Stanley!

Joe Stains said...

wally said...

Stan, While I have felt some withdrawal symptoms from missing my all time favorite Goob and his lovely sissy Stella, I can forgive your girl because that stuff is MAGNIFICENT. Perfect. And is obviously made for you because it fits perfectly with you. Beautiful, really.

That is a large stuffed cuddley toy.

I love stuffed toys that one you could use as a pillow.

Ludo the cool dude.

Kirby said...

OMG, that is the pawsomest giant flamingo stuffie I have ever seen! Mom says that it reminds her of a flamingo that used to be in her high school classroom. His name was Mordacai, and you had to bring him with you if you left the room. Mom said he was too cool, and Flamoober is too! Enjoy him!

Your pal,

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Stanley and Stella,
We missed you guys!! That flamingo is gimormous!! I hope he/ she (??) brings you hours of fun!

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Hiya Stanly my long lost goooobilicious pal,

thank you for commenting on my new blog.

I have to admit I was slightly taken aback by that huge flamingo you are chewing lagooooobriously on, I think it is quite the most amazing flamingo I have ever seen.

There used to be a pop song years ago called "Pretty Flamingo" by a pop group from the UK called Manfred Mann.

"So perhaps said Flamingo Bingo Magnifico should be called Manfred,

For that is what the Marvin Man Said."

Well you know my reputation for poetry, really bad poetry, so there you go.

Love and many licks,

Marvino xxxxx I am sure you have missed my doggerrel............

Putter said...

Hi Stanley! Hi!

OMG! That is ONE BIG flamingo! OMG! OMG! OMG! Listen, I sure would like it if you could FLY MY HERCY out on AIRE STANLEY so that I can take him to MY swimmies school! Let me know if we can book it okayest ever! OMG!

Love, Putter ...:)

Jake of Florida said...

Hey Goober Boy,

You came to visit!!! YES, you came to visit!! Does that mean your girl has accomplished what she was doing and now has more time to spend with the likes of us terrier guys??? We hope so.

As Florida residents where flamingos often reside, we are very impressed with the size and the demeanor of your new pal. Our Mom never thinks to buy us anything so enticing. Maybe she'll take a lesson from your girl!!!

Wirey love, Stanny (and a few discreet smooches to the Stellinator).

Jake and Just Harry

Neko said...
