Wired for Love

Yesterday Stella and I anxiously awaited our Wirey guests, Fergi & Jake. We were no good for anything all morning anticipating their arrival in GooberStan. We couldn't believe we were going to get to meet them on their roadtrip to Florida!

Of course, Stella did her best to make Jake feel welcome!

She was VERY enthusiastic about meeting him.

He was cool with that. I'm guessing he's used to it.

Naturally, Jake started asking, "Where's the big goob any way?"

Before he could make my acquaintance Stella said she HAD to say hi to Miss Fergi (one of her idols). Stella has so much respect for the Ferg, knowing that she weathered many years as a prisoner in a puppy mill and lived to tell the tale.

Fergi kindly let Stella sniff both ends. (She's such a sweet peach, that Fergi. I can totally see why her Airedale boyfriend, Farfel, is in love with her.)

Then it was time to let Jake do some of the sniffing.

We wanted to get a "before" photo of Jake (that is, a "before meeting the Goober" photo). You can just tell that boy LOVES LIFE, man!

FINALLY! I got a chance to get properly acquainted with my new Wirey bud, while he became acquainted with my headless pink flamingo.

We spent the next couple of hours hanging out at the Royal Tennis Courts getting to know each other while the hoomans yacked and loved on pups.

It was enough to wear this goob out!

Jake took frequent breaks over by the gate. Some kids were riding four-wheelers around, and you know how he loves his trucks and automobiles.

Loads of mutual admiration occurred!

Stella really wanted to hang with Fergi, but Ferg was enjoying the grassy spot in the shade with her mama.

I think Fergi & Jake's Nina Girl fell in love with Stella and with ME!

All that love & running in the sun was pooping us totally out. (Sometimes I think that was what the hoomans had in mind.)

I made sure to position myself so as to give Fergi a prime sniffing experience during one of my rare moments at rest.

How do you like this for Jake's "after" photo? Does he look any happier to you now that he had been gooberized? (Also, he had been hypnotized by my girl, who almost wouldn't let him play with us ~ she was monopolizing his time so much with her atomic booty scratches.)

It's obvious to Stella and I how Fergi and Jake have come so far from the uncertain and scared pups they were when they were rescued from their lives as puppy mill dogs... They get LOADS of good lovin' from the Nina Girl and their mama! The Nina Girl had us wanting more.

Look how good Jake and Fergi have it!! They have their own resident bear-hugger. Notice her technique. That is one full-bodied hug, man! She's a pro.

It's obvious Jake spends a LOT of time in this position.

Not only is she a good bear-hugger, but the Nina Girl is also very good at listening to puppy secrets and whispering encouraging love stuff. Jake's so relaxed he almost fell asleep sitting up.

No doubt, the Nina Girl learned all she knows from her sweet mama, who knows a thing or two herself about loving pups.

She has a friend in Stella for life!

And me? Well, after the goober mind meld, what do YOU think?

She got not one, but two hugs from me. (A rare occurrence, indeed.)

She wouldn't leave until she could give some last minute lovin' to us and tell us how much she loved meeting us. The feeling is TOTALLY mutual!!

We were so pleased to see that Miss Fergi and Jake were happy to have made our acquaintance. We stinkin' LOVED meeting them, their Nina Girl and their mama! We hope it's not the last time we see them!

For us, that Fergi smile was the highlight of our time together. She and Jake deserve all of the happiness they can get. We hope we added just a little to it!

The Nina Girl took this last shot of me before they headed back out onto the road. If you guys can't tell, let me just say that I am one happy goob! It's pretty obvious that Fergi and Jake's car is one giant LOVE BUBBLE on wheels! We are honored you shared some of that love with us when you wheeled past GooberStan! ANYtime you want to have a lovefest with us, we're totally IN!

Goober love,
Stanley & Stella

Ciao Gooberstaniani!

Awwwww.... la mia sentimentale ragazza gets misty-eyed over some of the happiest things and this recap of Jake and Fergi's visit to Gooberstan just about did her in. Santa vacca....!

Of course, I, Lucia, am thrilled over the quattroterrier encounter and was all smiley to see that Jake and Fergi are doing so well on the road trip, and that you and Stanley were your usual gracious and welcoming selves. Having great amici is just the best -- and you two are some of the greatest amici, ever!!!

Tanti baci!

Jake looks a bit stunned after being gooberized. I am totally jelly of those full body hugs. I am going to try and get one.

Why do the people always want us to be tired?

What FUN you had! I'm so jealous that you're getting to meet up with friends this summer.

And the answer to your question, Stanley is YES! PLEASE COME TO SEE ME WHEN YOU VISIT YOUR GRANDMA! I prefer to have Stella come too, of course, but even if she can't, I'd love for you to come! Wooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Looks like a blast!

TwoSpecialWires said...

OhMyDog, what a great thing that just happened to us. We met our very first dog friends - YOU TWO: Stanley the Goober and Stella the Princess. You are the very FIRST FRIENDS that we've actually sniffed and smelled and run and snuggled with. You welcomed us and showed us what true friendship is like: warm and happy and accepting and accommodating. You understood us from the very beginning, and gave us a chance to relax and be just who we are in your awesome presence. Those butt rubs and chin scratchies. That hypnosis and those gentle touches. We felt love that extended beyond our own family. Or maybe it's better put: our family just grew! What a great few hours. We are so happy that you shared Gooberstan with us. All of us. (The humines want to make sure that you know they had JUST as much fun and and enjoyed the whole experience JUST as much as we did.) We left with a wag to our tails, a smile in our hearts, a soft woolie bone under our chins, and promises of more love in our dreams. We are very happy. And want to thank you.

Jake and Miss Fergi

Pee eSs Mom promised to help us blog the time together, and we're sure she will once things settle in just a bit here in Florida.
