Rant of the Diminutive Goob

Sometimes my sister, Stella, feels the need to go off on one of her rants! It helps her get some important things off her chest, burn some energy, and restore balance to her life.

If she needs an audience ~ someone to listen and act as her sounding board ~ I'm usually the one she calls in for this. We've had some great philosophical discussions.

We cover everything from local issues, to the existential symbolism of the leash, to peace in the Middle East.

When she's on a roll, these monologues can sometimes go on indefinitely.

When that happens we call in the camera crew so Stella can sound off to the video gods.

Nothing relaxes Stella after a rant like a good full-body massage. She gets so relaxed that she goes all lovey on our in-house masseuse. It's actually kinda cute.

Part of Stella's rant talked about how today is day 3 of JoeyPalooza, celebrating the life and times of our bud, one Joseph Stains! Head on over & give the old man some love!

Goober love,

Joe Stains said...

Wow, I don't think I caught all of what Stella was lecturing about but man did she have a lot to say. I might have to watch it again and take notes to be sure I got everything. Thanks for the shout out dude, we are partying hard over here!

Noah the Airedale said...

Crikey Stella sure has a lot on her mind. Does she have something against her tail?? She seems a little cranky with it there lol.

Love ya Stella!!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Old man? What do you mean old man?! That must make me an old woman! NOT!
We loved your spa video best, Stella! Love that paw and sweet face!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Molly and Taffy said...

Stanley! Stella always has so much to say!
When she comes and visits Taffy the noise is quite unbelievable. Taffy is all teeth and tonsils as well.
Quite frightens the life out of me sometimes I can assure you.
I have to thank you for posting the videos as I rather think Taffy has put them on continuous repeat which will allow me to have some peace and quiet.

Simba and Jazzi said...

Mango said...

Very passionate about her opinions, isn't she? I am glad the girl is able to sooth the savage beast.


Jake of Florida said...

We so identify!!! Sometimes we just have to let it all out.

Love, love, love those videos. (They're giving our Mom inspiration for future cinematic forays!!!)

Hollie and Janie said...

Stella is certainly a busy girl! She's is too funny going in circles chasing her tail! You are such a sweet brother, my dear Stanley!!!

The OP Pack said...

GooberStan - woo have one talkative sister there. Stella sure tells it like it is - she got so excited she almost fell off the bed!!!

We would also like to hear one of your deep discussions with her - we would have lots to say about our leashes.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Pearl said...

Oh Stella! You are such a fireball, I just LOVE it! I totally agree with you about how I am not ready to start thinking about swimsuit season yet... didn't you say that? Maybe that was just me thinking...

Amber-Mae said...

Woah Stella, are you OKAY??? Been drinking ten bottles of Red Bull is it?

Butt sniffs,
Solid Gold Dancer

the 4 Bs said...

that Stella is quite a character. it makes us bark when we hear her going off like that. we ran outside to try to find her, but she wasn't there. she sure is a silly little pupster.


Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Stanley, have you checked the little Goobette's tail for tiny livestock? Heeheehee! It's amazing how the spa treatment can settle Stella down so fast! We need your girl to come over here every evening around 6:15 when we all go into hyperdrive! It can get down right dangerous with all 3of us doing zoomies around the living room!

Finni said...

Stella is so eloquent! ... can you send your Mum over here for an atomic booty scratch and one of those massages? I'd REALLY like that.
Finni xx

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

Oh Stella...unlike the others above, I happen to be verrrry fluent in Lakese...even with you thick Kansas accent...

You've got to be kidding!!! I had NO IDEA!!! People would PAY for that kind of info!!! I am totally shocked...and to think the others thought you were mad at your tail!!!!! If they only knew...

Love and kisses...



Kirby said...

So, Mom was watching the videos of Stella and Dad leaned over and said that Dog would make a good playmate for Kirby! Woot woot! I think you should ship Stella to Chi-town for a little vacation and we could hang out. Oh, and Mommy gives really good massages too!!!

Your pal,

Sophie Brador said...

Stanley! If I were there, I could chew on Stella's head, thereby massaging her little brain to help her think ever bigger thoughts. Seriously. If I were there, I would so totally chew on her head. She is very Pablo-like.


Moco said...

Dawson does that also. We just thought he was nuts. Little did we know that he was solving world issues.

Eric said...

Strewth Stella.That was some speech. You thought of going into Pawlatics?

Wiry wags, Eric xx

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

Stella sownds soo angree! We wood not want to mess wif hur!

Gus and Waldo

Huskee and Hershey said...

You are such a good brother to listen to her yak and yak away... Normally my mind just wanders off to nicer thoughts (like food, new squeaky toys, etc) when Hershey starts ranting.. Heehee..

Neko said...

WOW, who knew Stella was such a vicious wildabeast. Love,Neko

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh can I fly over for a massage from your Girl?

I lurve massages, and I also like to commune on pawaltics, and ex.....tenshilsm, especially pertaining to the leash.

I also cannot spell.

love from Marvin xxxxxxx

Mack said...

That Stella is CUTE with a capitol C!
I think she was still itching for some more Stellasmackdown even after her massage!!

Beanz said...

wow, she's got a lot to say for herself! Is that what you call a whirling dervish?

Murphy Dogg said...

Ho-lee crap! My sister Trudy does that exact same thing!! Mama was baffled by it and thought Trudy was part gremlin or something. But now the mystery has been solved!
Trudy must be part Goob!

wally said...

Whoa- I need one of those in-house masseuses. Though I wonder if she could simultaneously bring the zen to Oscar while rubbin' my belly too.
