Happy Valentine's Day!

 I can't be with my sweetie Brutus on this most romantical day, so I sent him a picture of myself to remind him of  my cuteness. 

I've been so worried about him. Not only is he pining away for me in a cold, snow covered and pugless existence... his momma has been out of town looking at a bunch of teeth. I think she might be related to Salinger. He must of gotten out of going to the tooth convention so he could keep his date with Pugsley.
 Thankfully, our pal Stubby organized a Valentine's Day card exchange. It helped keep my mind off Brutus. 
We got a lot of really snazzy cards, including one from Gunther's new lady friend, Twinkie. Ain't she a pip? I overheard Gunther talking on the phone to her and telling her he's getting her name tattooed on his arm. *snicker* Good thing she wasn't named after the Hostess Ding Dong...

I must admit my favorite Valentine is from my sweetie Brutus.  The box was so big I was hopeful for a second that he had shipped himself! But Betty did the Frenchie sniff test and confirmed no Frenchie was in the box.

Brutus sent the next best thing. Mi Amore.

I wonder if I pray to the pug father, he'll hear me and soon Brutus and I will be together.

Since I can't convince the parents to ship me back to Brutus, I guess I should be happy I have Gunther for some brotherly love  and comfort...

Many pug kisses and toots.

Thanks for the shout out on your bloggie! Yes...I totally skipped out on the tooth meeting because Pugsley and I simply couldn't miss VD together!

So Gunther and Twinkie huh? Not to be pervy...but how does that "work" exactly? ;-)

Happy VD to all of you!

Hi Gunther and Stella. I am a furend of Twinkie and Brutus. I am thrilled that they have such grrrreat Valentine Sweeties. I'm not so sure about that TAT thingy though. I'm just sayin'.

Stubby said...

Hi Stella! You are the epitome of cute in your first picture. I loved it so much I told Mom to print it and put it in her office. I hope Brutus doesn't get jealous.

I hope the pug father grants your wish so that you and Brutus can be together. You make such a dashing couple and I can't wait for an invitation to your wedding.

I'm so glad you have Gunther to console you when you're sad. I surprised Betty didn't lend a hand to help but I'm sure she was busy dreaming about me.

Stubby xoxo

Stella, those are such lovely pictures of you. At least you got a kiss from Gunther at the end.
Hope you all have a Happy Valentines Day.
Wags and kisses, Dinah Bridget and Elliot xx

BRUTUS said...

Oh, Stella! You look so sad in that first photo!! Rest assured that that very same photo now sits next to my crate - at least I can look longingly at you when mom is away... I love the photo of you in the box too - maybe the pugfather will grant your wish, how could he resist such a sincere request?

So glad you like your pressies, mom says I'm spoiling you. I hope I wasn't too far off base with "Earl" (I think that's what the chicken's name was). Glad Gunther was able to give you consoling kisses, but I was a little alarmed to see him gnawing on my heart (I thought I felt something...). A least he's gentle - something tells me Betty might go after it with a little more enthusiasm!! Well, I hope you liked everything (did you see I won the reindeer doing agility??), and it's so nice of you to share with your family!!!

I'll have mom post the photos of my gifts tomorrow - she took lots of pictures too :) She gets home tonight, can't wait to see her!! Maybe she'll bring me something cool from Arizona...

Take care My Valentine!!
Love Snorts and Frenchie Kisses,

PS As a dental hygienist, I truly wish dogs were allowed at tooth meetings! :)

What a happy and funny post! BOL Frankie told me he thought Gunther was getting a tat, and knowing Frankie, I thought he was pulling my leg. OMD this is hilarious. I was wondering if you could tattoo my full name, Gunther: Conchita Twinkie Twinkerson Doodle-bug. I do believe we make a stunning couple.
Happy Valentine's day to my furiends and friends
