Working for the Man

My girl just told us that my buddy, Hercules the Aireboy, is sick and is staying at the vet today. He hasn't been eating, his belly is tender, and the dogter wanted to get some fluids in him & do some tests. Stella and I discussed what we could do to help.

Since we already work for Eduardo the Snuggle Puggle, we decided to work the snuggling vibes today for my goober bud Herc.

Of course, our brand of snuggling is more a combination of snuggling and wrasslin'. More like SNASSLIN'!

We took our sweet time warming up for our snasslin' session.

And here we GO!

Don't fret. No goobs were harmed in this snasslin' session...

... though it may look like it.

Our snasslin' always culminates in a lot of trash talking...

... and exhausted crashing.

Today we are especially snasslin' for Herc and his tummy! Go by and give him some love if you can. We are also snasslin' for Sunny & Scooter and their mama Jamie, and for Bogart and his mama Lulu.

Goober love,
Stanley & Stella


Mango said...

I don't recall ever seeing you make that snasslin' face before. Very impressive. I think if Stella isn't careful she might fall right down your snallin' gullet.


Pearl said...

Oh Stanley! This is high-quality snasslin' you & Stella are doing! I just know Hercy will feel better soon! Keep up the good work!

Petey said...

I like the photo where it looks like Stella is standing on her head! Her whole body is the same size as your head, Stanley. Either she's getting smaller or you've become the Relentlessly Huge Aireboy!

Your pal,


P.S. I'm taking much better care of the second ball. It even still squeaks!

Lucia said...

Ciao Goobs!

NEWS FLASH: Lakie Stella Bean Latifah loses noggin in snasslin' smackdown with brother, Stanley ...!!

Oh, er -- wait [awkward pause of shame-faced embarrassment] -- THERE'S her little noggin in the next picture. Santa vacca, I feel like an enorme idiota...sheesh....

I'm glad you two kids are back, and I'll definitely keep my paws crossed for your buddy, Herc.

Tanti baci!

Gus said...

What a cool terrier word. Snasslin'!! We've been doing it and didn't even know what it was. Kind of like speaking prose and not knowing it. Now we'll tell mom so she can tell us, "You boyz, stop that sasslin right this minute!!!"

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Molly and Taffy said...

Better be careful with that trash talk, but snasslin looks like a magic formula for cheering everybody up!

Snassling...hmm...those were the most terrierfying pix I've seen in a long time...good heavens Stanley...don't bite Stella's little head off....

How is Herc?? Have ya heard anything? He has a tender tummy? Wonder if it's his pan cre is? Oh my...I'm so worried about him...let us know when you hear anything, OK?????

Love to you two Goobs!!!


Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Stanley,
We are so sorry we haven't sent you 'that' package yet. It's all ready to be mailed out but mom hasn't been well and doctor ordered 'bed rest' (not sure why the bed needed to rest when she's the one who isn't well), therefore we didn't get to stop at the post office. I promise you we'd send it out on Mon by hook or by crook.
Hope that Hercules is ok.. prayers and pawsitive vibes are on their way to him.

Mack said...

Snasslin' is new to me - I think it totally rocks!

Sophie Brador said...

On Monday next week, I wonder if you can do some snasslin' for me. Mom is sending me to the groomer!!!!


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Stanley man,
Blogger ate my words last night.
I have to tell you that your snassling face does send the chill down to my spine, man.
Have you ever showed that expression to Asta?

Oh I hope Hercules gets better soon. Oh that was some impressive snasslin'! That goes on at our house, too, though I don't have enough teeth to get a shark face going myself.

Your snasslin' made ME feel better.
