Diva Trucker

Okay. We all know Stella, my goobette of a sister, is a DIVA of the highest order. One thing most of you don't know about this diminutive diva is that she eats like a wild beast ripping meat from bone, devouring her prey with malicious relish.

This photo and the one above are evidence of her eating habits. In the photo above, she goes for the fish head first, leaving its carcass on the floor of her snack shack to finish momentarily. See the trance-like gleam in her eyes below? She even has fish parts hanging out of her mouth.

To provide further insight into the mystery of her eating habits I invite you to watch the next two videos. My girl has always said that for such a small pup Stella belches like a trucker! (No offense to truckers, who I am CERTAIN have better table manners than even my hooman girl.) Make sure your volume is up so you don't miss it.

Sorry for the lighting in this video, but it's really the audio that's important.

And finally, here's a diva pose we can recognize. This is Stella in meat-induced bliss.

I just have to accept that she's her own hybrid of diva ~ the trucker diva. And, before you start expressing concern for any retaliation she may try against me for posting this, Stella is very proud of her reputation. Just saying...

Goober love,

Stanny! those videos don't seem to be there. I'm going to head straight over to vimeo to see if I can find them.

Tell Stella I am so proud of her divaccomplishments.

Stanislaw said...

That looks so tasty. Raw fishies make Big Pupi do pukies so we never get them unless they've been cooked. Not fair! I can feast on fishies like a master! Can I move in with you? I like your menu better...

Coco said...

OMD! I' barkless! that is sure one heck of a burp!

Moco said...

Stella has Grammie snorting out her nose. Does that make them both Diva Truckers?

the Corgi Girls said...

Oh Stella, that was so cool - my mum is of Chinese descent - Australian-born,(so I guess I'm also half-Chinese now that she and dad have adopted me). Anyway, my mum said that HER mum told her that in the Chinese way, belching after a meal shows EXCELLENT manners and APPRECIATION of the meal - so I think you did good! Thank you both for being my new friend..I'm learning to handle this blog-business and hope you receive Harries

Ruby Bleu said...

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Lovely burps girl! You are ready for the belching bigtime!! You made my Mommy LOL and made my Daddy stir from his hard sleep! Smooches, Hootie

Hootie makes very strange chomping noises after he eats.We all tease him about it.He pretends it's not him. XO-BabyRocketDog

Bae Bae said...

You sure love your food Stella. I love that last pic of you.

Sophie Brador said...

Woah! Stella! I was about ready to schedule your defense, but clearly, you have fully and completely and definitely graduated from Sophie Brador's Diva Academy. You may even have surpassed your mentor in the belching department. I am so proud and impressed I can't even bark.


Murphy Dogg said...

Ah, haha, HA! Stella's burps are awesome!
I imagine her sitting outside in a rickety lawn chair, with a beer can in one paw and scratching her butt with the other paw. Can we get a video of that?

Mack said...

That is so impressive! Can you come over and give my sissies some lessons in trucker divaness?

the 4 Bs said...

we are very impressed. Stella is a total BEAST. she can hold her own with us beastie boys any day. we love her belches! Brody belches too, but his sounds totally different than Stella. OMD Stan, you will never be able to take her out in public!


Molly and Taffy said...


You are just priceless!


Hollie and Janie said...

Stella is my kind of girl! She looks so sweet, yet she's got some chompers on her!!

Joe Stains said...

Holy crap, go Stella go! I have never burped like that in my life, I prefer to send my air out the other end.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh dear... that should be a sound warning for any of her many potential suitors if they intend to bring her to a fine dining restaurant for Valentine's Day!!

Sophie Brador said...

Stanny, Stella is always welcome to come back for professional development workshops! As for holding my own Minster, I'm just teasing Mango. He wouldn't let me enter the category that my Joey was judging, so I had to be a Diva about it, and then when he forgot to post my judging pics .... Well, what's a diva to do. I hope he knows I'm just teasing.


Finni said...

Hahaha, Stella you crack me up. Mind you after such a delicious meal it just would be rude not to ... show one's appreciation. We're pretty good at appreciating food too ...
Finni & Nelly xx

Molly and Taffy said...


While I acknowledge you like to show your appreciation of good food is there any way you could possibly save your burps till after our Valentine's Day meal when I take you out?



PS. Did that bowl once have a pattern inside it????????

Asta said...

Stanley my Heawt..I am soooo upset about what happened at Wesmintew..the unfaiwness of iit!
Stoooopid hoomans

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Should we consider the belching when we judge the terriers for MangoMinster? Perhaps as a talent competition? You never might give you extra points. We not only belch after we eat, but we suck our teeth to make sure we get every last morsel! It makes some very strange noises too.

Good One Stella....Thats my girl!

The OP Pack said...

Hey Stella and Stan, thanks for signing our guestbook. We came to visit and say hi. Burpy Stella - that is so funny, maybe she needs to slow down her eating pace. We have a different problem, we drink our water too fast and then a burp comes and sometimes more than just the burp:-) Mom doesn't like that furry much.

Nice to meet woo.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Beanz said...

Gah, first I realised I had no chance in the beard Olypmics, now I realise that I don't stand a chance in the burp olympics either.

Great appreciation though. I must go and practise!
