Working the Angles

Today, instead of working together for Eduardo to generate some good vibes for anyone out there who needs them, we decided to work those vibes from a couple of different angles.

This pupgirl just moved to our neighborhood a few weeks ago. One whole yard separates her from us. Isn't she cute? We think she's a German Shepherd who maybe has a little border collie or something else in her.

We're both pretty keen on getting to know her.

So, I sent Stella over as our GooberStanian envoy to welcome this new pup to the neighborhood.

Stella is excellent as a goodwill ambassador. I can always count on her to do a good job of befriending new pups.

This pupgirl was ready to wrassle, but alas, a chainlink fence prevented Stella from intiating her into the ways of goober wrasslemania.

They had a really good chat, though we don't yet know this pup's name.

She and Stella made plans to meet out by the fence again soon. I'd say that was one very successful goodwill mission.

As for me, I decided to get reacquainted with my mooseman.

I didn't think it was THAT interesting, but my girl evidently did.

I guess I also performed a valuable service by giving my girl something exciting to do with her time.

This week we are working up good vibes for anypup, kitty, hammie or person who needs them, especially Patience and everydog over at the Whippet Waggle as they mourn their patriarch, Giacomino, who went to the Bridge yesterday. Please go by and send them some love if you can.

I'd say that we're keeping some of those vibes here in GooberStan for Stella, but with those that you have already sent us, she doesn't want to hog them. These stitches she has aren't interfering one little bit with her daily life. She's just looking forward to seeing her scar. (Next she'll be talking tattoos. Just you wait.)

Goober love,

Stella, what a warm welcome to the neighborhood you gave that cute girlie! Did ya bake her a pie, too? I loved how she was rollin' around, just dying to play!

And Stanley, I love your expressions. In this post, they seem to be telling your girl to take a hike. hehehe :)

It's good work you two are doing, sharing the Goober love with all the sad and hurting people out there.

I think we should start a new crew called the Welcome Waggin'. Big Pupi is not invited, but us three totally awesome canines can do it!

Deetz said...

Stella has bigger lips to kiss with now...I think she was just wanting some cheap face work done...
She is very good at welcoming the new puppy. I can't wait to find out his/her name and if she can play with you guys.
I love your moose

Mango said...

Stella is quite sporty in her little bandanana. That new gal seems keen to play. I hope Stella can behave once the chain links are gone.

The girl appears easily amused, as is my momma. I mean, you were just hanging with the moose.


Pug(s) and Bugg said...

Stella you did a great job welcoming your new neighbor! Tell your mama to make friends with her mama and then maybe you can get rid of that pesky fence! Also it was nice of you both to send out good vibes. I hope they work and help all our friends who need it.

Nice welcome to the new pupcake...nice to see she knows who's boss and flings herself on her back!!!

Barkin' at ya...

That neighbor doggy is a cutey, I wonder what kind of trouble she and Stella can get into. Glad her mouthy is healing, that was a nasty cut.

We are sad about Very Old Dog, but what a Very Good Life he had.

Hey Stan,
Tell Stella nice job for making friends with your new neighbor.
I can't believe you beat up your little sis! I totally want to do that, but I know Mama would kick my butt. And I'm a little bit afraid that Ginger might really hurt me ... she's tiny, but pretty damn intimidating.

Stanley, you are so diplomatic to let Stella be the welcoming committee. A dog with an agenda. Time with Mooseman.

Moco said...

A tat. The perfect cover for her scar. She will be stylin' then.

wally said...

Stan & Scarface! How nice of you to welcome the new girl into the 'hood. However, be careful of those sheppys. Next thing you know she'll be IN YOUR HOUSE. True story. Happened to me, you know.

I think the Mooseman is very interesting.

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Stanley, we just love the faces you make when you play with mooseman! Toooooo funny! Stella makes a great welcoming committee! We hope you get to play with the new pup on the same side of the fence, someday!

Stella did a pawsome job welcoming your new friend :)
Big licks to you

Salinger The Pug said...

Wow...Stella's Welcome Wagon Service is awesome!

You two are SO cute standing next to each other!


Hollie and Janie said...

What a sweet puppy! How nice of Miss Stella to welcome him to the neighborhood! He's lucky to be living soooo close to such a handsome 'dale!!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Stan!
Sure is nice to have a new doggie neighbor!
I hope you all can play together soon!
Kisses and hugs

You're such a good friend to go and welcome this new girl to the neighborhood, Stella!
We are just hooting over the pictures of you and your moose, Stanley!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

Aaw, what a cute little puppy!! We are glad that Stella worked her goodwill-edness and not her prize fighter-ness that she works on Stanley!

Lucia said...

Ciao dolci Gooberstaniani!

La mia ragazza has to second (or third -- maybe... fifth?) all the comments about your amusing Mooseman expressions, caro Stanley. She always giggles over those horsey eyes!!

Awwww, friendly Stella Bean, I am giving you a new title: "L'mbasciatora di Gooberstan"! (Now, if only mia ragazza had her wits about her with the Photoshoppy program and could make a special button commemorating the honor ... Ah, perhaps best not to hope for li miracoli...)

Tanti baci!

Great job welcoming the new pup - and cute bandanna!!!

Have a great weekend,

Pruett and Daphne

Clover said...

Hi Stan and Stella!
Nice work!! Your new neighbour is really cute. I can tell that Stella is a great ambassador!
Love Gooberclove xo

Eric said...

I can see Stella certainly made an impression on the new neighbour. Listening to Stellas plans for a tattoo and then showing Stella where she was planning her body pierecings. Mmm wonder if Stella will want one too?

Wiry wags, Eric xx

Sophie Brador said...

Stanley, Your new neighbour looks like loads of fun. I like pups a whole lot. If Stella is thinking tats, you should tell her to talk to me about it. I have a tat in my ear, so I can give her the pawsonal diva experience.

You are such a sweet boy to give your mom something to do by playng with moose. When you're done with that, come see my new collar!!!!


P.S. I can't wait to see you nose to nose in NY!!! I'm definitely going with my mom.
