Happy 2nd Barkday, Babystan!!!!!

Yeppers, our Stanley is two today!!!!!! No, we didn't make this lovely cake of a Dale jumpin' outta a Sniffany's box, but ya gotta admit it's totally adorable!!!!!!!!
Here's Stan...prior to his defurrin' ....Big old Dale fuzz face that one!!!!!!!

Lookie at this pic.....for those of you who don't know...Stanley's mama Bubbles died right after he was born. His auntie, Susie Q had pups two days later...so all SEVENTEEN of them were raised as sibs....here's an excerpt from what his breeder had to say bout it....
"He (Stan) was one of the biggest chunkiest pups! Dutch, B2 who we keep always had longer legs than Stan. The B or Bubble pups had collars on before the second S or Susie litter did. Remember I had to bottle feed, clean up and potty all 17 pups (with the help of Susie) every four hours and it took 1 hour to get it done. Susie would not like the pups to make them poo and pee as there were just too many. She slept on the outside of the whelping box and at night would come and get me when it was time to feed the babies. I would put 8 pups on her and bottle feed the other nine. The next feeding she would take 9 pups and I would bottle feed the other 8. Imagine this for "FOUR WEEKS" round the clock. Susie looked like a heifer and ate like an elephant!!! and oh the laundry and newspapers we went though!"


Rumor has it, Stan's breeder, Grandma Cathy has never been the same since this litter......no that's not Stanny in the water bowl...it's one of his sissy's....isn't she adorable!!!!!




Here's Stan as a young pup...his head hasn't grown into his ginormous ears!!!!!!!!! (Now he has a ginormous head!!!!!)


Wrasslin' with his bro!!!
We only got Stan when he was 7 months old....we're so thankful to his Grandma for sendin' us these pix as we never saw him when he was tiny!!!



Lookie at the cardie Asta made for him: isn't it the sweetest thing you've ever seen?????????? Thank you Sweet Girl, for sendin' it!!!!!!! (BTW, I am not anorexic...I just look a tad slim in this pic....)


We went on a pic a nic and Stan got to eat this giant marrow bone!!!!!!
He looks like one contented Dale...he should be; he lives with us!!!!
Happiest 2nd Barkday, Stanley!!!!!
We love ya!!!!!!
Scruffy, Lacie, Daddy, Mumsie, Bruvver and Sus!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Stanny! Momma laughed at all those 17 shark pups at once. No wonder their dog mom slept outside of the box. Yikes!

Slobbers,
Mango

P.S. I was glad to see that you were too dignified to participate in the monkey torture - unlike other terriers I could name.

Hope you had a great bday, not-so-baby Stan.
That was one heck of a puppy upbringing.
You were cute then and now, except, well errr. I feel a bit bad if that's what you called fluffy...

Happy BDay Stan!!! You are one of the cutest pupsters ever. Now listen Stan. I know you are only two years old, but you are going to have to be a big grown up boy when Stanley Gooberowsky comes to your house. You are probably going to have to protect him from your sister, who we just know is going to be all over him, and I want him to still be able to have some fun when I meet up with him in Boston and New York.

Well to the world of being officially not a puppy anymore!!!!! It's all up hill from here Baby Stan. The cookies just get bigger and better.
