Diplomacy

This here is my buddy, Lady. She's a sweet little goober girl of the Cocker Spaniel variety.



She doesn't look like she's built for speed, but she can run like the wind when she wants to.




Sometimes she is Stella's walking partner, but sometimes she's mine. (I have to tell you that she's a LOT easier to walk with than Stella is. Lady's not bossy like Stella.) When she & I walk together we like to round out our time with some chasin' & sniffin' in the backyard.




We're just sniffin' here, but we kind of look like we're ready to rumble.





Because she's so short I eventually give in and allow her easy access. It's gonna happen anyway so why not?





When our tongues are hanging like this, it means our booties are dragging and it's time to hydrate!




Lady finally turned to my girl and said exactly what I was thinking, "Are you gonna snap photos all day or get us some WATER, woman?!" Of course, lady says it more sweetly and with a smile on her face.


Just so you know, when Lady comes over it's like having a major summit negotiation at the U.N. Merv, my catbro, used to live with Lady until Lady started sleeping in his litter boxes and moving all of her toys into them. (A cat will never look at you as anything but his sworn enemy after that.) So, we have to keep our promise to Merv that he'll never have to deal with Lady again. When she comes over, we squirrel Merv away in his lair so he doesn't have any flashbacks of the old days. Just watching out for my Merv.






Love,
Stanley

Lady looks like she'd be fun to hang out with...she definitely has some moves on her!!!

Lots of Licks, your Ruby Bug

Lady is a real cutie! Of course, not as cute as you! I bet Merv is very happy to not have to put up with dog toys in his litter box. And Lady is probably happy to not get "tootsie rolls" stuck in her furs!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Patience-please said...

This is the servant. There are no whippets left to comment. You mentioned "squirrel" and a C.A.T. in one sentence. They all fainted.

were they conscious, they would wag

Digsby Mac Feegle said...

You and Lady set a nice pace around that yard! I should tell Errol about how Lady treats cats and perhaps he would be a bit friendlier to me!
Those balloons were a Great deed done!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

How much fun was that visit!? SO glad you weren't a Tramp with her!! Gooberstan is such a diverse land. Glad you kept Merv from any flashbacks. You are a kind and benevolant ruler Stan!

Joe Stains said...

I got dizzy just watching you guys, but it looks like fun. You told us where Merv is but where do you hide Stella away when all this fun is happening??

Petra said...

Lady's tongue is about as cute as yours, Stanley!

Goob on the run is good having fun!

Woooooooooooooooooo!

(but I miss my friend Stella)

Amber-Mae said...

Wow! You two sure can run non-stop! She looks like a real sweetie to me...

Butt sniffs,

Um, won't be Asta be jelloss if she sees that end-sniffin shot???

Nice ov yu to look owt for Merv. Mummy looks owt for Mr Scooter an Fluffy like that. If eny yung neffews come by, she haz them put up in the bedroom. They go under the bed, rite in the middol whare littol arms carnt reech. Sumtimes they get in the wardrobe. She gets thare tray an warter an food up thare too.

Cats an small neffews don't mix cos the neffews tend to want to carry them by their heds.

Hey!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Stanley,
You are one considerate dude... I am sure Lady appreciated the fact that you brought your bum bum to her level so that she has better.. ummm... sniffing access.

Koobuss said...

Hiding Merv when Lady is around is a very wise thing to do. We wouldn't want him to be traumatized.

Loved your video. Lady did a good job of chasing you, Stanley. She also looks like she figured out a shortcut at the end. Good for her. She seems highly intelligent.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobuss

Lady looks like a very pawsome friend to be with. ;)

Petey said...

Whee, I got the whirlies watching you two running in circles! And I cracked up when I read that Lady used to sleep and store her toys in Merv's litterbox. Silly girl, every dog knows the litterbox is like a humidor for kittie log snacks!

Now Stan, you seem to have mistaken me for some other hound dog. While I was indeed on The Bowchelor, looking for love, you'll remember that Lacie stuffed the ballot box (even though she was/is Archie's girlfriend, dog bless him!) so it was all for naught. To appease her, we've gone on a couple of platonic dates, but that's it. However, there's now a wee Scots lassie who has caught my eye...and perhaps my heart!

Your pal,

Petey

Lucia said...

Ciao Gooberstanians!

That little Lady is really something, Stanley. Non-stop, amico, non-stop!! What a fantastico play-date pal she must be. BTW, grazie, grazie for letting my girl know how important it is for me to EXPRESS myself. Bravo!! Such excellent advice!

As for your love-pup, dolce Asta, you're totalllllly right: she has a huge heart, despite her petite, girlish frame. I am all atickled to know her!

Special shout out to Stella: mia molta piccola amica, I think we may be twin sorelli of different mamas. Do you know that your name means 'star' in Italian, and mine means, 'light'? We were meant to be pals!

Tanti baci!
Lucia

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

She sure iz a prettee ladee!

the Corgi Girls said...

BOL, although Merv may not think so, she seems like a pretty good playmate for you pal!

And she's a cutie *wink*

Hollie and Janie said...

Stanley,
Tell your mama that my mama thought Stella's card was the cutest, sweetest, and funniest thing ever! (hence the making of her own starring yours truly!) She just knew all these sweet terrier faces would make anyone smile!!!
Love yall,
Janie

Eric said...

Stan. Woohoo that Lady's a looker and fun too. Who was chasing who? Give her a bit of a lowdown on kittie boxes though Stan. Everydoggie should know they are the dogs snacking tray. Poor merve no wonder he gets wired.

Eric xxxx

Fab balloons for Bogarts Dad Stan. You have the biggest heart in Gooberstan.

Moco said...

That lady is quite the pal. I wish Dawson would run like that with me. There is something about cockers and litter boxes. Dawson likes to eat all the corn litter out of them.

Murphy Dogg said...

Damn, Stanley! Just watching that video of you guys made me tired. I'm more of a lounger than a runner.
C-ya,
