The Thesis Has Landed

Finally, our girl's thesis, the bane of our existence these past months, has landed in the hands of those who have to read it. All we can say is thank doG! Now all she has is the defense this Friday, and any edits she may need to do (which she hopes will not be many). Thankfully we are no longer seeing this look on Merv's face. (He was HATING thesispalooza even more than we were!)

We've all been spending a LOT of time doing this...

and this.

Stella spent a lot of the time during thesispalooza having Merv give her pawdicures.

We also spent a lot of time like this (waiting for our girl to take a break to let us out).

We hope to be spending more time like this ~ wrasslin', snasslin', and romping around outdoors. Now that our girl is back in the land of the living, we plan to be around more to catch up with everybody!

The goobs are BACK!

Pawsonally, we have never written a thesis -- but we have a very very close relative (Mom?) who tried to write two and who has empathized with your girl during this lengthy process more than you know!!

So, again YAY YAY YAY!!!

We know your girl will do great on Friday and we'll be pawing the ground (hey Mom, we're not horses, we don't paw); Correction: we'll be putting our paws together to wish her well!!

Tons of wirey love and lucky sniffs!!

Ha-ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Way to go, GooberMa! I'm so happy for you and we will be waiting with baited breath for word about the defense! And I do love your photos but I think some of those photos of you on the couch are supposed to be sent via cell phone. And called sexting.

P.S. I think my ma ape just went into diabetic shock from the sweetness of that last photo. And she's not diabetic. And then I told her you might just be mooshing Stella. But probably not. CUTE.

Sophie Brador said...

I knew you were back! I just knew it. You know how I knew it? Because today, when I went to the teeny tiny park close to my house, someone had put a pink flamingo in the flower garden. I just knew it was a sign. I want to steal that pink flamingo for you Stanley, but mom says that would be wrong.
