    oh that’s awesome… i bought a costume for my dog and my stupid
    co-worker made fun of me for making a dog into a manimal but who can help themselves when it is so much f’in fun!

    DJ blurb: Dude, “let her do it”? Man you’re just lucky you’ve got a dog. she might be dressing you up. My s.o. is at this moment closeted with scissors, cardboard and glitter paint, I live in fear…

    Sorry about the all caps there’s something wrong with the

    Oh look, it’s a “Chucken”.


    Oh my god – gorgeous family, gorgeous baby, gorgeous Former Congressman.

    Seriously – your house must stink of cute. I want to put you you all in my pocket!

    How is Mows going to feel about this? http://www.savemouse.com

    POOR F.C.C.! That is, actually, truly hilarious….I swear, if you could read a dog’s mind, he would be saying, ‘I hope none of my friend’s see me like this….’

    Poor Chuck! At least he’s a good sport. My dogs would never sit still for that.

  • Jen

    I love how dogs always have that universal pissed off look when you put them in costume.

  • http://www.marymuses.com Mary

    This just totally made my day. I have a koala costume that the little girl I nanny has outgrown. If I send it to you, will you put it on Chuck and take a photo?

  • Nell

    Jon: I doubt you just “let her do it”. I bet you love it too, you are just ashamed to admit it. Besides, if you didn’t let her, she could hit you in the groin.

    I love Chuck! He looks so embarrased.

  • Valerie

    Chuck has the same expression as Ralphie in “A Christmas Story” with the bunny outfit.

    hahahaha, oh i love it!

  • http://chookooloonks.typepad.com/chookooloonks Karen

    Lord, now that’s just WRONG.

  • http://www.dooce.com Anne

    Is it the same costume every year? I must say, that’s one killer canine costume. Usually they’re so dinky and cheap-looking.

  • http://heather-anne.com Heatheranne

    Chuck looks pissed. He is SO going to be leaving “treats” for you.

  • http://buymediamonds@blogspot.com Em

    You are an evil woman. He looks so embarrassed. Still, I laughed!

    You know, some dogs have dignity and some dogs have dignity ripped from them and left in a bloody pool on the floor.

    (So cute. So undignified.)

  • Abby

    Chicken or vulture???

  • Susie

    The nose. The nose is so scrumptious. You must kiss it a lot.

    When Leta is old enough for you to embarrass her, Chuck will show her this picture and she will know that he understands.

  • http://jamsjunction.diaryland.com Jamie

    If Chuck is the Chicken, is Leta going to be the Egg?
    To cute!

  • http://www.edgeofbone.com/wedding Amanda B.

    Ahhh….there’s the look I was waiting for….

  • http://deepthoughtsfuzzymemories.blogspot.com/ Terri

    The look on his face is priceless. Great photo, as they usually all are. Regardless of what Chuck thinks, this photo alone is worth his misery. Does Chuck have a website at Dogster.com? If not, he should. He could show those other dogs a thing or two. We own four dogs and I’d have to smother my husband in his sleep before he’d allow me to do something like this….hmmmmmm…..Well, now Chuck knows for sure if he’s the trick or the treat!

  • Toni

    He looks like an avian court jester.

  • shy me

    can’t… breathe…!!! laughing…. too… hard

    Oh, Chuck, you are such a terrific dog. I heart you.
    As a kid, I used to dress up our surly but adorable tortoiseshell cat in (oh, the poor dear) cabbage-patch kid dresses. Sometimes even with the little elastic waisted shorts. She was unexplicably fond of me, even as an evil eight-year old, and she would let me roll her around the house in my baby carriage, on her back. And if I’d forget to take the clothes off of her, she’d walk around the house wearing her little white dress with the pink roses until I noticed that she was still wearing it. Gah, I shouldn’t have written about that, I miss her. She died of cancer last December.
    Jeebus! I’m such a downer! Carry on, Sir Chuckles! I thought he was dressed up as some sort of bizarre pumpkin from the sneak peek shot. He makes a terrific bird.

  • http://alliteration.org Liz

    Oh…Chuck. I think a symbiotic turkey-growth could be cause for some concern.

  • http://www.livejournal.com/users/angellivia Liv

    He just looks so resigned to it, it’s great… he reminds me of my dog who used to get the same look when we dressed him up!

  • http://www.dawn-unplugged.blogspot.com Dawn

    I think this might be what I look like when I say to my teenagers “Do I look like I have the word asshole written across my forehead?” …one can’t help but have a good CHUCKle (sorry, boy!).

  • ella’s ma

    I think we can all be thankful that poor dog lacks opposable thumbs-I can almost hear him plotting what he would do to you.

  • http://ladymadaysia.blogdrive.com Amber

    He has that “Why me?!” look on his face. How adorable is that. Reminds me of when I used to put pretty pink bows in my dog’s hair..

  • http://coolbeansmama.blogspot.com coolbeans

    I can’t get my toddler to wear a costume but you can get your dog to cooperate? You have magical powers.

  • http://angoras.blogspot.com/ TracyDee

    way too cute :) What a trooper.

    Please put an entire pizza on the floor in payment for such wickedness.

  • Brian

    I’m calling PETA on you. RIGHT. NOW.

  • http://www.evilsciencechick.blogspot.com Regan

    oh wow. I thought the little devil hat I bought for MY dog was cruel. but that…that…


    he even LOOKS embarassed!!!! poor puppy!

  • http://www.infinitepink.com Christine

    Chuck. He’s finger-lickin’ good.

  • http://www.rokdev.com/rk rokdev

    That is just SO wrong.
    Yet so funny.

  • http://ximena.blog-city.com Super Turtle Girl

    Chuck!!!! Why are you so CUTE? I think you are the cutest dog I’ve ever seen.

    That look of forebearance really gets me. He’s not humiliated! He looks like “Oh, God, I’m just going to INDULGE her. She’s enjoying herself too much.”

  • http://bekmarie.blogspot.com Bekah

    Chuck’s face is like, “Oh my Lord, are we doing this AGAIN?” hahahaha! That’s great.

  • http://www.edgeofbone.com/wedding Amanda B.

    Had to show my husbando the pic of Chuck.

    He said, “Bwahahahaha…*snort*”

    Our dog Annabelle, on the other hand…well she just keeps giving us this, “don’t you friggin dare” look.

  • http://deann.blogspot.com DeAnn

    Heh. Is that Chuck’s Halloween costume?

  • Heathertoo

    Maybe he’s a cross dresser in dog terms and loves this look. Im hoping for a pink tu-tu next….
    red painted nails…. big bow on one ear tilted to the side…

  • http://honestyrain.blogspot.com/ honestyrain

    he tolerates you. you do know that. i can see it in his eye. silent resignation because in all other ways you are good and decent to him. run Chuck, run!!!

    no, i’m kidding. he’s cute. really.

  • tess

    That is just TOO FREAKIN FUNNY!!

  • Irrylyn

    That is just too cute!! I was looking for a doggy skeleton costume for my lab cross, saw one a couple of years ago, but nothing this year. That costume takes the cake tho, did someone make it or were you actually able to buy something that adorable!

  • Colleen

    poor, adorable Chuck… photo should be called “Tolerance.”

    What does he do when everyone laughs at him? Does he get embarassed?

  • http://buttershug.com Nikki

    My schnauzer had that exactly same look right after we had him neutered.

  • http://www.lemonlight.org Angie

    This must be very confusing for you taxidermist neighbour!

  • http://www.digitalcatharsis.com The Mighty Jimbo

    the aspca is totally gonna come calling for that one.

  • http://www.superseuss.com Seuss

    That is absolutely adorable. And as owner of a dog who wishes we could find costumes that cool, I have to echo Irrylyn – where did you buy that or did somebody make it for you? Other people who spoil their pets senseless are dying to know. :)

  • Valerie

    From someone who is dressing up as their own dog for Halloween (mask = laminated, enlarged picture of dog’s face), I applaud your emphasis on including everyone, even Chuck, in the fun.
