Poetry in Motion

As is known by many, I am a flamingo fan. I am also a fan of the cold weather!


When those 2 things come together, I am a goob who likes to be in constant motion.




I've even been told (well, I've told myself) that I am poetry in motion!




The blurrier the photo, the more poetic.





Of course, Stella's training as a poetess is still an ongoing endeavor. Like all great teachers, I ask my pupil to begin by mastering the basics.


Young Grasshopper shows promise. She has even shorn her hair as a sign of devotion. If she can de-stick me from between my back legs she will graduate eventually to... pinecones.



A little solitary stick work to cleanse the body and the soul.


This girl's a LONG way from flamingos.



Love,

Stanley

You are like a wild stallion running free, WITH NO BUGS when it is cold! We (finally) awarded Stella with her well deserved Stain award. Congrats.

We love it when you're running and your ears stick up! Pups, you are too cute for words! Glad you had fun with your flamingo and that huge tree branch!

Poetry In Motion
Out in Gooberstan
Like waves out on the ocean
If Stan can't Stella can

Poetry in Motion
Running side by side
Their lovely locomotion
Draws dogs from far and wide

We love every movement
There's nothing we would change
They do not need improvement
They're really not, all that strange

Poetry in Motion
A couplet with a stick
Such Sibling devtion
Might seem a bit too slick

Poetry in Motion
Lot's that we adore
Don't need no lover potion
To make us love them more

What happened to the little goob? She is naked! You better keep her running around so she doesn't freeze up.

I saw her trying to mimic your gooberness in the video. Not even close...

Slobbers,

Sissies are always behind the 8 ball but they get there in the end. Stella has a good teacher so it wont be long before she has mastered the flamingo. You on the other hand matie, are poetry in motion.

You are truly a teacher of the highest caliber. If Stella does not learn from you then she is not teachable. She does look like she is coming along.

great picture ! Looks like you two have fun !

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

You definitely have all the right moves, Stanley! That is one hoooooge stick! Be careful you don't try to skewer Stella with it! Although, at the rate she's going, maybe you better be careful she doesn't skewer YOU with it!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Stanley, I just love that photo of you with your leg kicked out to the side. The intricacy of your moves is gooberistically stunning. Watch that Stella. She might be a quicker study than you expect.

EXCELLENT job hunting that flamingo! I've never seen a pink bird around these parts... I hope it was delicious!

Hi Stanley
I agree with you. You are poetry in motion. What a fun toy. I'm going to get me one of those.
Love Ruby

Maggie and Mitch said...

You're very graceful for a Goober, Stanley! You know we mean that with the fondest affection!
We love the colder temps too! We got snow while mom was gone but nothing to brag about - yet!

Love ya lots,
