Bits & Pieces

Stanley rarely lets me post, but here I am today, because he was so excited for me to tell you about my new frens! Our girl's co-worker has 2 crazy goober dogs too, and this is the Corgi girl, Bits. I was invited to her house for a little playdate yesterday. Doesn't she have FABULOUS ears?!

Bits was a little shy at first, so I toned my Stella essence way down so she would feel more comfortable with me.

I also employed the use of a nickname, and once I started calling her Bitsy Boo Boo she started to warm right up to the idea of being my fren!

We kept it pretty mellow except for one short interlude of no-touch wrasslin (which my girl was too in awe of to catch on film).

Bits then asked if I wanted to meet her big hairy brother, Pieces. He's a high energy no-personal-space kind of Golden Retriever. I said, "Bring it on, sistah!"

As you can see from this photo, Pieces is a goob of the highest order.

He tried to overwhelm me with his gooberness, but luckily I have much experience dealing with ultra large goober pups. I whipped him into shape in no time.

We even played Queen of the stairs, and I won! (*grin*)

Bits and I consulted, and we decided that we needed to make this a more regular kind of playdate. As members of the same tribe (Sisters of Extra Large Goobers) we have a LOT in common. And, she reminds me of my buddy, Izzie from the Corgi Lounge!

Making frens and influencing goobers,

We love Bits's ears! She plainly has more aerodynamic lift than a 747.

You guys are pretty cute together!

Those are the best dog names ever! Even better than Null and Void!!!
I am so happy that you have two new frens and a new tribe member too.


Randi said...

Hey Stella! Did you tell your new Corgi Girlie friend that she may need to get a digital converter box for her antenna ears? I'm not sure she'll be able to pic up reception with them past the end of Feb! But maybe she will..they look pretty high tech to me!

Looks like you had a grand time!

love & licks,

Mango said...

Maybe a little less of that shrieking right in Bits's ear.

I can't believe you appear almost, dare I say, mellow with your new friends. I think Stan might need a corgi suit.


Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Way to go, Stella! Do you think maybe Stanley can go with you, next time? You would make a great foursome!

Murphey said...

A ggod nickname always makes 'em feel better! What fun you had.


Koobuss said...


It was nice meeting Bits. She looks like she will be a good friend for you. And, yes, her ears are very impressive.

I liked your video. You have excellent vocal chords. I was hoping to see you run down the steps. I'll just have to wait for the sequel.

Looks like living with Pieces may wear Bits down. She is going to need a good friend like you, Stella.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Bits must be able to hear stuff 3 counties away with those ears!! I am glad you got to go have a play date, they seem like super cool frens. How come Stanley didn't get to go?

Wiry wags, Eric xx
