Poo Appreciation

Alright. I appreciate good poo as much as the next dog. I also know that I'm the one who let Stella post about her organic poo art. So, I have no right to complain. But I'm wondering if this poo thing maybe has gone a little too far.

Joe Stains and Tanner believe that this piece of poo art is deserving of...

their much-coveted Stain Award!

Confident that Joey would recognize her genius and that she would eventually receive the Stain Award, Stella recorded this acceptance speech several weeks ago. (Disregard the very loud TV in the background.) For those of you who don't speak Lakeland, she's just saying THANK YOU, JOE & TANNER!

I have since come to find out that there are even hoomans out there who appreciate the power and the beauty of poo. Take, for instance, these images from a calendar called, "The Monthly Doos 2009". You can see it and many other works of poo art by going here! This first image is for February (of course).

This is April.

This one is June.

And this is September. (I LOVE those little green army guys.)

Stella was thrilled about her Stain Award and to find that hoomans might actually pay money for her artistic efforts. Here are just a few photos from the publicity packet for the satisfied artist.

Don't get me wrong. I don't begrudge my sissy her success, but can you even imagine the kind of diva she's going to be now? Just look at that face.

Living with a diva,

Hi, Stan!
Lakeland is a strong language! Thanks for the translation!
I don't know why but my mom said "ewwwww..." when she saw those poo pictures!
Kisses and hugs

Koobuss said...

Oh Stanley,

I think that you've got a real problem here. That Stella does seem to have attitude. And now that she is receiving all those accolades for her artistry, I think that she's going to be even more of a pawful for you. You have my sympathy, pal.

I must say though that the artwork is extraordinary and much to my taste. Although my own efforts are quite substantial, being that way myself, I lack the imagination and creativity necessary to complete in such an intense competition. I'll just have to try harder.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Mummy doesn't know if she should laugh to or feel sick! Congrats on your award.

An interesting poooooooooost!

Stella I fully understood your acceptance speech, amazingly eloquent for a lass of your age.

As you are now a well known Diva I would be truly honoured if you could pop over and be the first to kiss me under the mistletoe!


Maggie and Mitch said...

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hollie and Janie said...

You are such a supportive brother! Stella's award is poo-rific!
Love yall!

FleasGang said...

Poo as art!? I never knew it could be done. And here, I've just been picking up all of our little master pieces and throwing them away. Now I feel dirty.

Balboa & Mommy said...

That is one cool award Stella!

How can I get my parents to believe that poo is art????

welcome to the club Stanley. Living with a Diva is Purgatory right here on earth.


Finni said...

Spoken like a true artist Stella! We love the special butt-in-the-air poses ... pure Diva.
Poo is a new but interesting art medium to us. I guess there is an optimum consistency ...

Our servant sells that poo calendar in her store. We thought... but no, she does not appreciate our indoor artistic contributions. Not at all.

Petra said...

Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Your speech was the GREATEST!!! I was impressed with your gracious and humble spirit as you accepted this very coveted stain award.

I'll bet Tad could get this award sometime, too, because he poos in the house all of the time but he usually eats it before anyone can take a picture.

Ruby Bleu said... are a true artist. But my Mom wants to know who would pay for a poop calendar??? That's just weird.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Noah the Airedale said...

Now that is something to be proud of Stella and well deservant of the Joe Stains award.
Great acceptance speech btw. Of course we understand Lakeland very well having 3 of them living up the road.

I am positively brimming with pride. This could even be the moment that Stella graduates from Diva college, although I'm not sure I can bear to be without my mentoree.


with love, Madison said...

H-mom spends so much time PICKING IT up she doesn't care to admire it. And STEPPING IT when other people don't pick it up. ewwwwwwwww.

Clover said...

Hahaha, congrats Stella! You sure do deserve that award!
Love Clover xo

Aniemother said...

OMD.. those pictures are too funny!


Huskee and Hershey said...

it's Poo Galore!!
Guess what Stan, Hershey got a Staain Award too for pooing on the couch! Hmmph.. I think I might try that if I can get an award for it..

Joe Stains said...

Stan, I must apologize, I had never thought this might put her right over the diva edge, I should have known better. I am the number 1 boyfriend to the world's BIGGEST diva! I can only hope Stella is at least manageable and takes queues to harness her inner Diva like Sophie.

Amber-Mae said...

I see POO! Lots of POO!!!

Stanislaw said...

We aspire to produce art like the sprinkle brigade. Talent. Pure talent. Stella is well on her way to a show at the MET.

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

Uh, well while we congratulate Stella on her award, and appreciate her speech, mom says between scooping dog poo for most of her life(did I mention that she is really OLD-so that's a long time?) not to mention the human poo as a nurse, she just says no thanks on the calender...... and she wants to know if it actually costs MONEY!! hah
Stella, don't get too full of yourself. We ALL make that kind of art!
