Questa è la mia bella lingua AND i miei nuovi amici!

Ciao miei amici!

I nostri piccoli amici (our little friends) the
Rocky Creek Scotties have come up with the coooooooolest "Stick Out Your Tongue" contest and I, Lucia, am delighted to play along! I have already seen many fantastico contest entries and am suitably impressed with each and every one of them. Our bloggieverse is rich with some very grand and magnificent tongue talent!!! (But, um ... one question to the King of the Goobs: do you have tongue extensions!??!?? Santa vacca, il mio amico -- your photos are so very impressive!!)

So, without further delay, I bring you La Lingua di Lucia (Lucia's Tongue) -- a dramatic performance in seven acts:

Puppy tongue

Pllllbbbbbb!! Who-put-this-glue-on-my-ears tongue

Jailbird tongue

Joyful tongue

Bologna tongue

Blleechhhh tongue

Poppysicle tongue ... mmmmmm

And!!! I will post more about this later, but la mia ragazza and I went to visit her papa and her sorella (sister), who is la mia zia Concetta (my Auntie Conni) last week ... and I got to spend the week in doggie day care with THESE pals, who live near il mio nonno (my grandpa)!!! It was FANTASTICO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is bellissimo (very beautiful!!) Cache, dolce (sweet) Mick -- a dear Irish Terrier like our amico Keeley -- and Cache's adorabile mama (adorable mom), Alyce. Cache and Alyce are the very first Airedales la mia ragazza ever saw and played with in person. Awwwwww...

But wait, there's more! La mia ragazza and I saw this in a store last week and I made her take a fotografia (photograph) for my enlightened pal, Mango. Don't you think this would help create just the right kind of ambience for his many deep and introspective meditations?? If you biggify the pic, you'll see the box even has his name on it!! How completely perfetto (perfect) is that!?!?!

Tanti baci!

Stanley said...

Dolce Lucia Girl!

Your tongue pics are adding to the FIERCE competition. I'm especially partial to your popsicle tongue and your blech, bologna, & joyful tongues. Upon reflection, I find that your jailbird tongue is mighty fine, as is your puppy tongue. I think your face that accompanies the "who put this glue on my ears" tongue is hilAireous! You're looking like you're plotting some payback.

As for me, I'm all natural. No extensions here. Sometimes I think I could use my tongue as a waterproof coat for my back, but it's not quite that long.

Glad to see that your love affair with the Buster is going strong. He's a goob of the highest order!

Goober love & smooches,

That prehensile tongue of yours, wrapped around the popsicle, just reminded us that there are ice pops in the freezer. That's where we're headed..... Thanks!
