    You do realize that between two days of Leta/Chuck bonding and GEORGE! pictures, that my poor cutemeter broke and now I am a blubbeing mess? Well, if you didn’t know, now you do.

    Thanks for the triple dose of cuteness. My Ovaries and my heart thank you.

    What TexChic said, except for the part where I hate that song. Come to Texas, George! At least it’s warm down here!

  • Emily

    I had a dream last night that Leta was my daughter! She was being so good and smiley. Before you think I’m stalking you like most of the people who read your site please know that I’m pregnant and having weird dreams all the time. I hope you all had a nice holiday.

    What a precious picture.

    Leta: Let’s see…Wearing pink? Check. Messy, yet adorable bed
    head? Check. Sweet-natured, lovable puppy? Check. Now, if I can strike a pose with the perfect balance of cuteness and mischief, the whole internet will cry out with unbridled joy…

    George! Where in Texas are you going to school??? I went to UT and live in Dallas. I hope you are headed to the Austin area, you will LOVE it!

  • http://www.dooce.com/cgi-bin/cms/mt-comments.cgi cb

    Uh, George is too young for me, but I have a little bit of a crush on Daniel Boone. Do you have any pictures of him in one of those raccoon tail hats? Because that could really do it for me.

    Everyone keeps “welcoming” George to Texas. I’m in Texas, and I’d welcome George, except…I thought he was _returning home_ to Texas? So, shouldn’t it be more like, “Welcome home, George”?
    Or, actually, in Texan, more like, “Wayulkum houm, Gahrge.”

    Does George! have a Texas accent?

  • Julie

    Sniff, I miss George already. I could eat him up in that picture of him sleeping!

    GEORGE! We miss you already!

    cb: How old are you? I have some sad news about old Danny Boy … You may need to sit down.

    george gone? what? say it ain’t so…

  • http://symbioticfishes.blogspot.com Fish

    Wait … you’re talking about GEORGE’s dad, as opposed to the historical figure.

    *Fish packs it in for the day and heads home.*

    George’s departure has hit me like a kick in the nards with a steel-toed boot. I had to take an extra Zoloft today just to persevere.

  • http://jesferris.blogspot.com jes

    We’re in Dallas too! And I agree with Ty – George! will love Austin. Does he have an idea of where he’ll go?

  • http://www.august95.blogspot.com August95

    Nooo Not George. And so soon after Christmas. I hope things go well for you George. We will miss you.

    Poop :( bye bye GEORGE! You will be missed greatly. Check in on us once in a while and let us know how you’re doing.

  • Allison

    no more GEORGE!? Noooooooo that can’t be!!! I shudder at the thought.

  • becaru

    Clearly Chuck thinks of Leta as part of his pack. Gotta love it.

  • Sara

    I love the faces Leta makes.

    So how many dates has GEORGE! acquired from your site?? Good luck GEORGE! in all that you set out to do…and MAN do I need a dog.


    I’m not going to Austin, I live in the Dallas area, which is where I’ll be going to school for now.

    Yes I have an accent. Thanks for all them there welcome homes y’all gave me.

    Amazin how much abuse a dog will take from a child. My dogs n cats thru the years took a beatin from 8 grandkids. Last 1′s 6 so he’s outgeown it a bit anyway. Dogs just lay their n the cats swish their tails,and look cross at me,like it’s my fault. Now when the kids show up their happier 2 c them ,then when i come home. Unless im holdin a box of bones from butcher. It’s come down 2 bribin my pets n g-kids. lol……Gotta love it…later

    Hey, good luck back in Texas, and congratulations on escaping BYU.

    And make sure to visit The Epicenter of Cuteness often enough to keep us all up to date.

    Take good care of yourself, GEORGE! We’re all looking forward to tales of your… ummm… well, whatever, just tales of you. ;)

  • http://symbioticfishes.blogspot.com Fish

    You see, and this is what I get for learning everthing from watching Dallas on the soap opera network. I thought it was “them *THAR* welcome homes.”

    Re: #41–
    Fish, I am 41.
    What’s the sad news?

  • cb

    Re: #43–Oh, you were just, duh, not paying attention.

    Watch it, Fish, I’m in Milw, too.

    One little two little Flea little Indians……………..She is counting the fleas as she picks them off. I think I will name this flea Rey!

    GEORGE! left? what? where was i when this decision was being reached. i am flabbergasted. i need to go lay down.

  • http://www.dooce.com Amanda B.

    Good luck George. You’ve made a big, brave decision to explore life and we are rooting for you!

    P.S. George said Jon was old. uh huh huh…uh huh huh…

  • Wynn

    GEORGE! should have his own blog…

  • http://thefathousewife.blogspot.com/ Mrs.Stray

    LMAO @ Chucks eye..he is like OH MAN! Sorry for your loss of George. When Leta is more car seat tolerant ROAD TRIP!

  • http://randomandodd.blogspot.com Kristine

    GEORGE! you will be missed.

  • http://www.dooce.com Amanda B.

    Wait a minute…that would make me old too… :(

  • DeeGee

    Well, damn… I can’t tell who I want to eat more! Leta or Chucklesworth.

    Too. cute.

  • http://dirtyfloorsandfilthyjokes.blogspot.com/ closet metrosexual

    GEORGE!, I’m just up the road. Hop on I-35 and go 990 miles until you get to Minneapolis, and we can meet for rum on an empty stomach.

  • http://www.eponymous.org/knitamknit Anne Marie

    I have the biggest crush on George! I hope he’ll send photos often or start his own blog so I can maintain my weirdo internet crush on him.

    Although he is ‘de-mormonizing’, I don’t think that Texas offers much of a different atmosphere as far as religion goes. He should consider moving to Georgia.

  • http://ayendeeareeeayaitch.blogs.com/ayendeeareeeayaitch AyEnDeeAreEeAyAitch

    I miss GEORGE! already too.

    What a magnificent bastard.

  • http://bigtopal.blogspot.com Alan

    “I know there was a piece of candy in here a minute ago…”. Leta is just so adorable, it kind of makes me regret the whole childless/single thing. Maybe I can get a little clone of myself…

  • http://www.thejulietfiles.com Julie

    And who can blame her. Those Chuck ears look so flappy and soft!

    Ears are my favorite part of a dog.

    Welcome to Texas, George! Before you do anything else, go straight to the nearest boot store and get you some proper footwear.

  • http://ganman.typepad.com Scott

    GEORGE!: on yer way through Texas stop by the Bush ranch and wave your fist angrily at it.

    Uh oh. I think the guy in HR is on to me. He keeps saying strange things like “Good Morning” and “How are you?” I’ll bet he’d like to know how I am so he can tell the Shadow Ops he works for all about it. I totally have to take him out with my Swingline stapler.

    “Hey…is that…what is that floppy thing? Does it hurt when I pull on it? Dog. Why must you just sit there whilst I torture you so?”

    Baby + Dog = Damn Adorable Picture.

    It’s a scientifically proven fact, duh.

  • kris

    but..sigh..i was gonna marry george:(

  • Michelle

    second the GEORGE!blog idea – but only if he includes all sorts of overwhelming cuteness pics like his cousin…

    Why is it that all the Dallas folks want George to move to Austin? Could it be that Austin is the place that everyone (who’s cool enough to LOVE dooce) in TX should live? Anyway, if George takes y’alls’ advice, he can come hang with me and my brood, as I am so blessed as to live in Austin.
