I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

"Ahem... If it's not too much trouble

would you mind fixing my chair?"

"Seriously! Do you think I'm going to sit on the cold, hard, wooden slats of the deck?"

"It really is quite a chore having to ask you to do the simplest of things. It shouldn't be that difficult to remember to flip the chair over, after it rains"

Every day, every single day, I must have my nap, here in this chair, in the sun."

That's the trouble with not having thumbs, Stumpy - got to rely on humans for stuff like this!

I thought woo had morphed into a turtle!


Carey Brown Strombotne said...

pic #1 is so funny! stumpy, you are such a silly girl!

Terrorzinhos said...

We agree with Khyra, you look like a turtle!

Kristine said...

I understand, that chair looks pretty comfy. If you want something done, I guess you'll just have to learn how to do it yourself!

Wyatt said...

Hee hee, Stumpy the Turtle!

Dexter said...

What kind of low class joint are you living with that you can't even get your sun chair properly situated for most necessary sun baking? I hope you aren't tipping.


Barbara said...

I hope your parents learn from their mistakes from now on! A dog needs his sunbathing!

Awwww poor Stumpy!

Stella said...

Wouldn't be a difficult thing for me or my Mom to remember. Can't imagine why its hard for yours. Every day period.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are sure glad got your chair fixed. We wouldn't want you to miss that comfy nap either..

Big Sloppy Kisses,

Aww, Stumpy! We're so glad your chair finally got fixed. Now, back to that nap...

Hi, Stumpy!
Glad you got your chair in the right way so you could enjoy your nap!
Kisses and hugs

The first couple of pics remind me of the scene in "The Bishop's Wife" where David Niven (as the Bishop) sits on a newly varnished chair in the home of a wealthy potential benefactor. I'd say his expression is quite similar to Stumpy's!


Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Sam, no thumbs but maid service 24/7... I wouldn't be complaining!

Khyra, She'd have me carrying her shell for her, no doubt, if that was the case!

Carey, Silly, that's one word I use to describe her. There are many others!

Terrorzhinos, A giant speckled Turtle, that's all I need.

Kristine,Oh no...she knows I'll do it. I have no doubt, just by the looks I get.

Wyatt, Do you think there's a role for her on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Mango, when the hired help gets a raise, I'm sure I'll do a better job!

Barbara, I'm trying really really hard!

K9K, She suffers so, doesn't she? I'm sure she'll be cannonized.

Stella, I'm doing my best!

Heelers,See that face? Can you imagine how grumpy she could get without her nap? SCARY!

Elyse and Riley, she jumped right into a nap! Didn't miss a beat!

Lorenza! We're so glad you stopped by! Stumpy needs a lot of naps, just to keep up with herself!

K9friend, OMD! You're right! hahaha!!! Too funny!

Okay, so Snow Cream is kind of like ice cream. Ever had the ice cream at Chick-Fil-A? It tastes just like that. You mix up a can of sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, and snow and voila! Or you can make it with milk, sugar, vanilla, and snow. It tastes better with the sweetened condensed milk though.

oh my - howd you manage that one?

woof - Tucker

Such simple things we try to train the humans to do - and yet they are such slow learners. Have patience with them.

24 Paws of Love said...

That's tell them Stumpy!! Imagine the nerve of leaving YOUR chair overturned at nap time. Take it from us, humans never learn.

The Heartbeats said...

What does it take for Stumpy to get a nap- in a chair- around here?

Brenda's Arizona said...

OH MY!!!
I'm still laughing - not at Stumpy, but at 'life'. Stumpy, you are the master of the Stink Eye!

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Elyse, ok, I got it! and now all I can think of is Frank Zappa's "...Watch out where the huskies go and don't you eat that yellow snow..."

Tucker, her wish is my command.

TH, I'm telling you...you dogs certainly have a lot of crosses to bear.

24 paws, I only have 2 legs. You gotta cut me some slack!

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Heartbeats, it's not like there isn't 4 other chairs she could nap in...

Brenda, I know! and I get it quite frequently!

Such a silly girl. But she sure looks quite happy at the end:)
