In the Jungle

Our backyard is a treacherous jungle. Seriously. My girl dropped her cell phone in the high grass and we couldn't find it until we had someone give her a call. Our yard may not be easy on cell phones, but it IS a roachers paradise. There's nothing like that long cool grass scratching up and down your spine. Here's a little photo essay I put together of my recent roachin' session. I've added a couple of videos at the end. Think of it as my ode to roachin'!

I was on such a goober high from all that jungle roachin' that I even showed Stella some of the best places to hunker down and get a good session in.

Stella was roachin' back and forth so fast we could barely capture it on film.

You could say I was one happy goob. In fact, I decided to take a few victory laps around the yard... and have one last little roach in the jungle grassland.

Goober love,

omdog can't Stella let you roach without sharking you in the face?! Looks like you had a great time zooming around tho, and she sure likes to chase you!!

Sophie Brador said...

Stanny! Your furry back legs are kind of cute Stanny. Mom wanted you to know that we just saw that beagle I attacked last night, I couldn't have cared less. I am very fickle about who I dislike.

Great raoching, Stan - we see you have had the rain thing going on there too. Seems like the grass grows as soon as you blink an eye.

Loved the videos.

Did Stella shrink in the wash or something? She looks tiny!

That grass is amazing! Wish ours was that nice all soft and cushy. Very vigorous roaching there, my man!

Huskee and Hershey said...

You are a good teacher Stanley!! Happy roaching!

Sally said...

We love roachin' too! But usually some other substance has to be on the grass too! Paddy is a fan of Foxes Mess - they should bottle it - he would use it as cologne.

Great grass - and love the run around afterwards

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Goob, that's some good roaching you've got going there. Stella is going to be a roaching expert watching you.


Suzuki said...

Hi Stan!
My sister Tahlia calls that death rolling. She starts from a standing position and then drops her shoulder and goes from there. BOL
Big licks to you

Oh Stanley, my back yard is a jungle too! Momma keeps saying all these HBO words about how it won't stop #@&$% raining so she can MOW!

Stanley, your yard was made for a roaching Airedale! All that delicous grass to roll around in and of course eat. Pawsome!

Your pal,

Moco said...

Did Foley send you his roachin' manual? You are a quick study. Stella keeps up pretty well.

Molly and Taffy said...

Stanley. Fabulous video footage of you demonstrating the art of roaching.


Stella. You can certainly keep up with Stanley. I do so enjoy watching you play.

Ciao Gooberstaniani!

Stella the Gazella! What a leaper you are, sweet girrrlie -- it's molto impressive! Stanny, you are the paws-down roachmaster. Fantastico work!

Tanti baci!
