Snuggle Pic Take... 43

We here in GooberStan have been working hard and snuggling a lot this week, as per our orders from our snuggle boss, Eduardo. I was more than willing to document said snuggling with my girl.

Stella even agreed to be photographed mid-snuggle.

I guess my girl included a nice neck scritch in with Stella's snuggle... obviously.

Then we thought we'd try to get a group snuggle shot. Let me just get this camera timer adjusted.

Why is that light blinking?

Okay. I think we're ready.

It's pretty obvious that I'm the only serious snuggler here.

I'm in primo snuggle position, and I guess my girl is attempting to snuggle, but she's a bit distracted trying to wrangle Stella into position.

I don't think it's particularly funny that the females in this snuggle group can't get it together.

This week we're concentrating all of our snuggles toward Bogart's dad, Klaus, (who is extremely ill) and to his mama, Lulu! We're still looking for our miracle and will do so until we see it coming! Hey, I think I see something down the road a piece!

Goober love,

I think your mom needs to try a Boston snuggle!

Moco said...

That Stella has a mind of her own. You are one great snuggler, for sure.

Sally said...

I think you are perfect snugglers - the timers on cameras can be pesky things and never go off at the right time!

Still sending Bogart and his family all our love and positive healing vibes,

Lots of licks

Boo Casanova said...

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

You are both great snugglers! We're sure Eduardo is proud of you!

We're still hoping and praying for that miracle too!

Maggie and Mitch said...

Thank doG that your girl and Stella have you as their anchor, Stanley! How could they ever survive without you?!
Those are super great pictures!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hee hee, we liked your comment about the firefighter speaking a funny language. One of the reasons that momma keeps watching that movie is that every time he talks in Bawston speak, she finds it very comforting regardless of what he's saying.

I don't think that Stella will ever figure out the advantages of snuggling. More for you, big guy.


Molly and Taffy said...


You have obviously been putting in a lot of overtime this week snuggling for Eduardo.

Excellent work. I have to say working with a houseful of females is a demanding job.


Sophie Brador said...

I just love to see you snuggle, although I notice, Stanley, that you're not so focused on snuggling that you can't work the camera. You are clearly a master multi-tasker.


P.S. Mom says to tell your girl that she met with her advisor last night and might actually be on to something. He showed up with two pages and notes and then made a bunch more, so she figures all she has to do is take him out for beers and he will eventually write the whole thing for her.

Stanley - Sweetheart - Darling:

Have you forgotten - your trying to work with "DIVAS" - Where's Merv, he needs to be WHIPPING those girls into photo opt position.....

Remember what Lulu sang - quoting DEVO
"When you've got a problem - you must WHIP IT !!!!"

Get the stick!!!!

Petey said...

Hee hee! We love how serious and focused you are in the group shots, Stanley, while chaos is erupting all around you. Your two girls are laughing away and you're so stoic!

Well, that's what plenty of experience in front of the camera will do for you!

Paws still tightly crossed for Bogie's dad.

Your pal,


Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh very funny pics! We have loads of family ones which look a bit like those with the timer!!!!!

We are hoping and praying for the miracle, let us know if it what you are both seeing outta the window?

lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxx

Gus said...

Holding for the miracle here too.

Deetz said...

Those were great snuggles....I really like "always in our hearts" slideshow, I saw my lil Gizmo there. That is a really cool slideshow!

Lucia said...

Ciao bella, Gooberstanians!

First, that Eduardo sets such a good snuggle example for everyone, doesn't he? Extra baci his way!

Second, Stanley, your camera vogueing is spot-on, amico, and there's no question my piccolo pal Stella is a diva ... so ...I'm thinking your girl ought to set up a catwalk (playbows to Merv!) in your backyard where all of you can strut. Work it girls and guys!

Tanti baci!

Petra said...

What GREAT family photos of the snugglers! You guys are awesome!

Stella snuggles like me...only when we want to, right, Stella?

PS -- yes, I sleep under the covers each night with PA and Motch. Sometimes they get in my way, but I've never had to push them out of bed. Yet.

Amber-Mae said...

Looks like you three had a good snuggling time. I hate snuggling!

Butt sniffs,

Laurie said...

what expert snugglers, to all wrangle in and take the picture too? I am envious of your skills. Stanley you must be doing a good job teaching those other lesser snugglers in your home. Thanks for spreading the word on Bogart's dad.

G'day matie
Goodness Stella looks like a vampire in the last snuggling photo. She looks like she's ready to pounce onto someones neck hehehehe.
We just love the snuggle pics. I think we should give it a go.


Caz and Ludo the cool dude said...

Great snuggle pic's made Caz pounce on me for a snuggle I was asleep so i just let her get on with it.

Ludo the cool dude

William Tell said...

Stanley, you have the snuggles down pat, but poor Stella! She's just not a snugglebunny, is she? Gotta love her, anyway. :)

Happy Tails,

wally said...

IF you don't mind I'm going to photoshop myself into a snuggle pho-to because I sure do love snuggles. Though I confess I only let my ma ape snuggle with me. I'm quite particular.

Joe Stains said...

In that first photo Stella sort of looks like a vulture ready to swoop in on you guys! YIKES. I think you should stick with the solo snuggle shots.

Asta said...

Suki Sumo said...

Stanley, I love seeing your girl's pretty face! What good snugglers you two are.

Also, I remember Suki and Joey too! She is such a pretty girl and I really miss her a lot. That painting definitely looks like her too!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Stanley,
You are obviously a great snuggler!! Our mom says she'd LOVE to snuggle with you if given the chance...
Hmm.. don't think Stella is that into snuggling though! Hershey is a terrible snuggler too.. she pushes you away with her legs!!
(I think those 2 girls don't know what they are missing!)

Beanz said...

I love photo number 2 (where it looks like Stella has grown long human hair overnight, and the one where Stella's head is actually growing out of your back! Plus the one with you posing and Stella diving off the back of the settee behing you. In fact, I love ALL your photos


Finni said...

Nelly is a great snuggler and, I have to admit, I have started to appreciate a bit of a snuggle myself (something I have NOT been prone to in the past). You guys are obviously well experienced snugglers. We love the B&W photo!
Finni & Nelly xx

Hollie and Janie said...

You really were the only one who could get it together! You are so photogenic, my friend! I snuggled with my mom last night, too! I would have thought Stella, being the little diva, would be all ready for the paw-parazi! :)
Yall are too cute!!

Eric said...

Stan. Wow. Your girls head furs is as stunning as yours. Seems like you are def the alpha around the house Stan keeping those giggly girlies in order. Good to see you are taking the job so seriously.

Paws crossed and barking for Bogart. Eric xx

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...






Happiest Barkday ever to Stan and Stella's Girl!!!!!

Scruffy, Lac and Stan adn Mumsie is your birthday today isn't it???

Sophie Brador said...

Stanley! Tell your mom that my mom met with her advisor and she's all excited again about her project. Wooo Hooo! She's doing work on the HighLine and the area in NY where Asta lives, so she's wondering if you guys really truly are all going to NY this Spring and if you are, when.


Koobuss said...

Isn't snuggling one of the best things goin! You guys are very good at it. You're just not well coordinated.

Love and Koobie Kisses,
