Always In Our Hearts

Sunday, April 12, 2009


For the next week we here in GooberStan will be occupying ourselves with the business of finishing my girl's thesis. She has to have the whole thing to her committee by next Friday, April 17th. (Her defense is on the 24th.)

Stella is doing her bit to keep our girl focused.

And, since our puter died this past week, I have gotten rid of this old behemoth and installed a new laptop in the office.

We're working hard to get our girl to the finish line. (Our girl promised to mention us in her acknowledgements. She better.)

Since we won't be around much at all this week, we're going to leave you with some extra cheesy and gooberrific photos of us to stave off GWS (Goober Withdrawal Syndrome).

Goober love from the thesis supervisor,


Pee Ess

For inquiring minds who want to know, Stella gets her stitches out tomorrow (Monday the 13th). My girl says she will take photos!


Mango said...

That should be enough gooberness to get me through the week. Hey, when your girl finishes her thesis can you send her to visit my brother-in-law? He has been working on his like totally FOREVER!


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

I need a gooberness patch to help me stave off GWS. Make it to match my complexion, please!
Wish your girl gulps down her books in no time.
Love ya lot
How is Stella stitches?

Ruby Bleu said...

Please give your girl a big gooberie kiss for me and wish her luck. Mom and I know she'll do pawsome. BTW how is Stella's mouth doing...seems to be doing fine, huh!

Hoppy Easter...
Lots of Licks, your Ruby Bug

Hey Stan,
What an excellent supervisor you are! I also must occasionally supervise my Mama when she is writing term papers for grad school. She is lazy and procrastinates. Tell your mom good luck from us!

Sherry said...

Keep her at work, Stanley, and good luck to all with the thesis!
Sherry (so glad to be done with all that)
Alanis (I could be helpful, too.)
Miro (I could tear it to bits during the defense.)

Joe Stains said...

Oh geez, this is the final countdown!! You better keep on her so she gets that thing done and then we can have a huge celebration!! Let us know if you need Tanner to fly over some coffee or snacks or something.

Sophie Brador said...

Stanley!!!!!!! We over here in the Gooberstan colony of Montreal are just so proud of all the hard work your girl has been doing, but even more proud of your great job of supervising and frankly, probably ghost writing. I know I ghost write almost everything my mom does. I even sometimes ghost teach for her! Ah yes, the lack of credit for a poor pup like me. But enough of me and more about you, who will get to meet me schnozz to schnozz in just a wee bit over a month from now. I am so excited and hope that you will let me chew on your head.

Happy Easter Sunday, Stanley and Stella. Good luck on your thesis, Girl!! Your mate Max has a very gentle face and it sounds like he's found a great foreverhome. Whoa, he's got a job after leaving your place? Impressive!

Persephone and Buster said...

OH NO!!! not the thesis...stanley you've gotta keep the coffee maker going and never move any papers.. tell the goobette not to eat any, cuz poof <-----your girl will melt down....we don't want a melt down! i'll see what i can send in the way of juicy nose shots to keep the tension down.....other then that, hey -- have a blast! she will be concentrating and won't even know you've ordered pizza for a party!!!sorry you won't be posting -- but these last pics should at least help the situation a little!
give your gurl some slurps from us and we'll be thinking of her as she gets in the ring and defends the 'THESIS'..... get some good boxing gloves for her so she can get her point pounded into the committee's heads.
theBUSTER, Ms.Persephone & Ms.Blue ...oh and the humomm too, who does understand such things as the best defense is a good offense... :o/

Hamish said...

Good luck to your girl with her thesis!

Gus and Waldo

Huskee and Hershey said...

Wow... your girl's thesis topic is on Chinese traditions? That's a cool topic..Let us know if we can help in anyway or if you need any information.. We will get our secretary aka mom to help you (but I kinda suspect your girl may know more about Chinese traditions than our mom.. LOL!!).

Moco said...

We will be awaiting the news of the finish of the thesis. No doubt the two of you will keep her on track. What will she do when she is done?

Noah the Airedale said...

We just know you two will do your Goober best to help your girl finish her Thesis.
Sending aire-zen for Stella too.

Good luck keeping your girl focused on the thesis. My dad says the first sentence is the hardest.


Mack said...

You got one L O N G gooberlishious tongue and that Stella has quite the set of chompers!
Good luck to your momma! I know she really appreciates all your help.

Pearl said...

Stanley, I just LOVE that last picture of you! Grinnin' from ear to ear!

Wish your girl luck for me. I know this will be a hard week, but think about the RELIEF that is sure to follow. I forsee lots of LONG naps next weekend... maybe I should mail you guys a big bottle of bubbly... can ya mail bubbly? Hmmm....

Molly and Taffy said...

We hope your girl manages to finish her thesis in plenty of time. We just know you will be there to keep her totally focussed on her work.

Should there be signs of fatigue a loud woof in one ear and a great slobbery kiss behind the other usually does the trick. :-)

Molly and Taffy

Pee ess. Be brave my dear Stella when you have your stitches removed. Just imagine me sitting next to you holding your paw and giving you a huge toothy grin........ Let me know how you get on Stella please.


Maggie and Mitch said...

OMG, you cracked us up with that last picture of you smiling, Stanley! Mom says you are just so darn adorable!
Do you think Stella will be able to keep still to have those stitches removed?! We can't wait to see pictures!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Tee said...

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Stan! My main man! I love the jaws shot! I almost mistook you for a wild beast like animal. You were almost furrocious like! Hehehe...With a schnozz like yours, you could never be the wild animal type!

Hey, did you know that you had something orange and rubbery on your head? I hope you killed it. It would have been the Aireppropriate thing to do!

Good luck to your girl on her Thesis!!!!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Good luck on your girl's thesis. I'm sure Stella has left her goober influence on those books that were stacked so neatly (hee hee). Love the goober-grin at the end.

Happy Tails,

Ciao dolci Gooberstaniani!

Santa vacca, your girl is going to have a busy couple of weeks! Please tell her we're sending boatloads of Aire-Zen her way to help her through, although we are sure she will meet with magnifico success!

Naturalmente, I am in complete agreement with il mio ragazzo blu, theBUSTER, about ordering in la pizza. Be sure to get extra formaggio. (Mmmm ... squisita ...)

Stella Bean, we hope your stitch removal goes well and that you're back to your old self PDQ!

Tanti baci!
