    Understand totally. Asian and white parents with a Buddhist/Catholic/Jewish/Protestant background. Grandparents on both sides were worried what the children would look like. Looking back on it now, I guess a sixth finger and antennae would upset anyone.

    Is Chuckles going to Utah too?

  • Angelique

    ….sounds like pergatory all around. I disagree highly with the addage that when two people get married, so do their families. I’d like to see my sweetie’s uncle put up with my mood swings, or my dad endure my sweetie’s penchant for leaving his “spitters” around (damnable tobacco).
    Bon chance to all involved. Sounds like your friend Sara may have a full dating schedule there….. poor girl.

    A big dose of dog urine should quickly diffuse any intra-family squabbles.

    at least you guys eloped. i was just at my brother’s (a jew) wedding to a catholic, and just to make sure they pissed everybody off, they had a dual ceremony, with a priest AND a rabbi. plus, they didn’t do it in a place of worship, oh noooo… they did it in the Chinese Room of the Smith Tower, complete with red wallpaper and lazy susans on the tables. talk about clash of the titans. a jewish mother vs. the mayor of tehachape. look out.

    Chuckles is not going to Utah. He’s going to jail.

  • http://dogadvocacy.com The Inmate

    I see a disturbing pattern here. Is Chuckles silently protesting the cross-dressing shame that you ever so heartlessly exposed to the world? Or is he merely marking Sara as his territory? Given that The Family will be under enough stress to validate (let’s not mention accept yet) your culture-meshing marriage, I am quite concerned about the impact that a potential romantic relationship between Chuckles and Sara might have on their already frayed nerves. It may just be too much.
    So, here’s to hoping it’s just that he’s traumatized. Plus, I’m sure he’s too young for Sara.

    My in-laws are here for week 2 of a three week visit and no homocides have yet to occur. Luckily we haven’t had any discussion recently on why being gay is evil or why those pesky people on welfare don’t just gets jobs. My sympathies to you and Jon with your family excursion. Too bad Chuck isn’t going, a little dog urine can go a long way. Good luck!

    Homocides? I didn’t know they got that specific.

    As a long-time fan of your web log after reading about it an issue of Fast Company, I have to say that, Dooce your posts, as always, are enlightening and keeping it it real. You crack me up.

    Get the composite sketch of the sniper as soon as it comes out, have Sara wear it, and you will sleep more soundly than ever.

    I am still trying to get the wife to allow me a dog, much less put it in jail. And I’ve had a damn bulldog tattoo on my arm since college. Not because I was in the marines or went to some bulldog school, but because I want a friggin’ bulldog named Norman. Is that so bad? Now get Chuck out of jail and let him pass Go!

    aww, how could you send that cute little innocent puppy to doggie jail! he was framed, i tell ya, framed!

  • http://www.kaneblues.com/ Kane

    Have you ever considered that the pee may not be from Chuck, but rather Sara? I’m sure wetting herself is cause for shame, but to repeatdly blame innocent Chuck is just sad. I hear that Depends makes an excellent adult- diaper.

    If the collar doesn’t fit
    then you must acquit.

    My dog, my sweet baby boy, looked at my friend Sara, assessed that she was indeed a vertical structure, lifted his right leg and urinated on her leg, wetting her jeans straight through to her skin, TWICE in three days. He’s guilty, folks. Plain and simple.

  • http://www.kaneblues.com/ Kane

    Can Chuck help it if Sara looks like a fire-hydrant?

    No Justice, no peace.

  • http://peoplewetters.com The Inmate

    Is Sara short and stumpy? Was she dressed in bright red that day? Does her skin have a metallic sheen to it? Is she by any chance a quadruple amputee?
    You see, any of these can get Chuck off the hook. I just don’t believe he could do that after assesing that Sara was indeed, human.
    Uh…no offense, huh Sara?

  • http://www.realityremixed.com Keith

    It’s probably the pheromones she’s giving off. Are any human males walking up to her and peeing on her leg?

    dooce.com is exactly what Jean Teasdale’s blog would be like if she had one.

    Now, is Chuckles the kind of dog that will make another dog his bitch in jail, or is he going to go sissy? given his penchant for women’s clothing, i’d guess option 2.

  • http://queserasera.blogspot.com Sarah B.

    WhatEVER. Chuck would totally be Smoove B.

    there will be cereal, also.

    it’s nice when parental units on both sides are rednecks.

    I was so inspired by Madame Chuckles the other day, that I actually went out and bought Los Lobos, Colossal Head. Seriously.

    At least he didn’t poop on Sara, something that my dog has done to several people including myself.

    Hopefully your family units will avoid the Chuck’s mistake, because I have found that while most people do not like to be pissed off, it is preferable to being pissed on.

    Heather, I gotta agree with the lady who wanted to know why you don’t have an agent. Stuff reads like a demented marriage between Bukowski & James Thurber and the photos are a killer complement. That picture of Chuckles is a gem.

    …that would have been me. I can’t believe I got called “the lady”! Next thing you know, I’ll be carrying a clutch and asking boy scouts for help across the street. Excellent.
