Always In Our Hearts

Monday, June 29, 2009


Our new buds, the Rocky Creek Scotties, are having a photo contest. Can you guess what it's about?

Tongue while meeting friends.

Tongue at the Mississippi River.

Tongue at home.

Here's one of me with my sweet Ami (Asta's mommi) in New York City. She doesn't seem to mind that I slimed her in this photo.

Tongue with stunt prop.

Tongue in Central Park.

Yes. My tongue has been all over the place, but so has Stella's. Here are a few of her pics. This is her signature, "How's my nose taste?" photo.

Tongue while meeting friends. (Hi Jake & Fergi.)

Nose tasting again.

There are hundreds of more tongue photos where these came from, but you get the idea. So, if you want to enter, just post a photo of yourself showing off your tongue, then go over the the Rocky Creek Scotties' blog and leave a comment telling them to come by to see it. That's it. You're entered. You better hurry, though. The contest will be over when they make their 100th post (and that's coming up)! Even if you don't want to enter the contest, go on by and say hi. They're a hoot.

Today we would like to end with a piece of what Stella now calls her "shartwork." (She borrowed the term from our puggy friend, Pearl.) In this installation piece Stella exerts her creative efforts in the ultimate existential quest... the meaning of life.

Goober love,

Stanley! That poop shot is gross! I am not a poop fan at all. Even of my own. I have to walk on my tippy toes after pooping.

Okay, so that rumour about me kicking your bootie is totally true! I just leave out the part when you sort of took over the bootie kicking at the end.

Miss Fergi speaking:
Ewwww! Is that last picture what I think it is?

On a more delicate note: I saw in some of your photos your blingees similar to my tiny red heart/pawprint blingee! I love it! It makes me feel so special and feminine. Jewelry for a lady. Sigh. And, "Hi back!" We think about our visit with you sooooo much! We sleep with our bones and squeak our mini-tballs (the ones that still squeak) as we lie under the ceiling fan on the bed when we rest and play. (We don't share them so well here in FL, so we have designated playtimes.)

We've had lots of chances to show our tongues the past few days.... my goodness it gets hot here. If Moma'd only teach me how to put pictures in a blog post, I'd show you MINE. But she doesn't. So I haven't. Yours make me smile.

Now I'll go tell Jake all about them. And we'll have a nice remembering party. On the bed. Under the fan.

Love you lots,
Miss Fergi (and my lazy bubba Jake)

TwoSpecialWires said...

Hey! Fergi just woke me up giggling at the computer. She's getting a little assertive (and brave!) these days. Anyhow.... I got a big kick out of your tungshots. A coupla of those (at home) made me chuckle right out loud. (Mostly they made my tail wag.) I just have to tell ya, though, Stan. If you'd just rested, leaning up next to the fence like I did in that first photo, you might not have been so stinkin hot! Notice that MY tongue isn't hangin down to my chest! hehehehe!

Miss ya, buddy. Miss Miss Stella, too.
Your no longer sleeping pal Jake

* pearl wipes a tear from her puggie eye *

I have never been more PROUD! My little shartwork protege!!!!!! You've really outdone yourself there with the delicate color palette!

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

We aren't so sure about the shartwork, but we LOVE your tongue photos! You are such a handsome Goob!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Great tongue shots!!

But we have to wonder what Stella has been eating. We walk around poop - we don't even like to smell our own.

Have a Terrific Tuesday,

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Molly and Taffy said...

Stanley your tongue is amazing.

Stella your art work is amazing. (Bet your eyes were watering though)


Pug(s) and Bugg said...

OMG Stella those nose tasting pics? In our family we call them "nose guards"! You are guarding your nose from unidentifiable nosepicking objects!!! BOL!!! PS Love the shartwork!

Mack said...

That Stella is an artistic genius! Picasso, move over!!

We think you will probably be one of the tongue contest winners.

Joe Stains said...
