Brother from the Same Mother

Hey, blogging frens! I have some news about a long lost relative and was hoping you would help me spread the word. Are you up for it?

I just found out that a brother of mine, born from the same dog mama and dog dad a year before me, is now up for adoption. You'll never guess what his name is either. It's STANLEY! Can you believe it?! I have 2 big brothers named Stanley! Here's his mugshot. Isn't he a cutie?

Do you see the family resemblance? (This is me, in case you couldn't tell.)

This is Stanley from another angle. He has the same coloring as I, and he's just a little bit bigger than I am, weighing in at 14 pounds. He's house trained and knows some basic commands.

Here's an action shot of me, so you can compare our coloring.

His owners gave him up because they said he was such a ball of energy they couldn't keep up with him. I think they didn't have the capacity to appreciate all of his gooberocity and fun-loving attitude.

Now, I want YOU to spread the word about my other brother, Stanley the Lakeland. He was rescued from a shelter by the same rescue group that saved my life, and if you want more information about adopting him or who to contact if you have questions, you can find that here.

Who knows! Maybe you could be adopted by a gorgeous Lakeland just like my girl was! Thanks for any help you can give in getting my brother his furever home!

Goobery love,

Stella Bean Latifah

Stanley II is the spittin' image of you! He's so cute!

Bailey and I have embarked on a conscientious and scientific search for evidence of eyes on Buster's face. We shall have a full report shortley!



Stanislaw said...

He's way too cute. I give him 1 week before he's found a fabulous home!

Moco said...

He is fan-tab-u-luss. If we weren't maxed out on dogs we would just put in for him. Do you think they would take Grammie in trade?

Maggie and Mitch said...

What a handsome boy Stanley is! OMG, if he doesn't look like your twin, Stella! We hope he finds his forever home really soon!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Gus said...

We hope Stanley finds his furever home before muzzer folds. She has wanted a lakie ever since we got to know you and Lacie, but we gots Teka instead.


wally said...

I could have my own Stanley! I hope he finds a GREAT home (Like Gus's!!!) He would be better to have around than that elephant my ma ape has been eyeing at the SPCA.

Hey Stella,
Wow, you and your bro look totally alike! Your mom should adopt him, then she can have 2 Stanleys & a Stella. (doesn't that sound like an awesome movie title?)

Oh Stella,

How lucky you are to have two handsome brothers Stanley.

Stanley the Lakeland looks like a lot of fun. I guess he didn't get the right home in the beginning. It is a shame that his people gave him up, leaving him homeless and broken hearted. How can anyone ever do that to such a cute little sweetie.

I wish that we could take him here, but circumstances prevent that. We wish Stanley the best of luck in finding a new and better forever home. May he find a loving home where he will be happy for the rest of his life! Good luck to him!

Keep us informed, please.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

I think humans need to really look into what "terrier" means before actually getting one!!!

Terrier = crazy, energetic, wet bearded, spontaneous spurts of energy, lots of lick, the occasional accident nip, big wet nose, and such...

Hehehe...At least our humans know this, right?

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

You and Stanley look like twins, Stella! We think you should send him to Gussie's house! I bet he would get along great with Gus and Teka! We'll keep our paws crossed for him!

oh stella, what are you doing to us? and the editor is going to be in Florida all week! If they let animals on Southwest I'm sure there would be attempts made to bring stanley home, but I know they don't because I'm staying home. :P I know he'll find a good home, well see if they editor can resist though.

Eric said...

Silly leggeds giving him up (I'm trying to be pawlite,heheee)they will never know what they have missed but I'm sure his fur ever new leggededs wil. And love and appreciate him as he so deserves. I hope they find him very soon. Let us know eh Stella?

Sophie Brador said...

Oh Stella, Your girl will probably kill me for even thinking it, but it sure would be cool if you could adopt him. What a riot it would be to yell "Hey Stanley" in your house.


P.S. I hope he finds a great furever home just like you did.

Hey Goobs, Mom was just over at Tigre and Baby's blog and saw that picture of Mittens looking disgusted by Clio and decided it must have been Clio's unruly hair, which got me to thinking, what has Merv been up to? He hasn't been taking care of your coifs lately. Did he go on vacation?
