    I think he looks like a kangaroo in that picture…

    Hm. Earlier this morning I thought maybe Chuck was running from (or to…who knows?) Big Mean Bearded Dog from Wednesday’s photo. But after reading today’s post, I’m thinking maybe Chuck’s running to rescue poor Leta from The Moving, Toy-Grabbing Baby. Sic ‘em, Chuck!

    Must give warning on pictures with spam quotes. I spit my coffee AND had it come out of my nose. Ouch.

    Love Mr. Chuckles, love, love, love him.

  • patricia

    Bonus! I’d forgotten about all Chuck Fridays!

  • tater

    This reminds me of the beginning of that show “The Bionic Woman”.

    Area ANY of his feet touching the ground in this picture?

    Tracy, you rock. You’ve just replaced the Chariots of Fire that Melanie S planted in my head.

    Both songs, together with this photo, have filled me with a sense of invincibility on this very cold Friday afternoon.

    I love Chuck Fridays.

    Yay, Julie! Max, the Bionic Dog. *Sudden images of Jaime Sommers throwing a Sleepnumber bed at her captors*

    My favorite line from today’s post?

    Ain’t no party like a Chuck dog party ’cause a Chuck dog party don’t stop!

    Oh, and my dogs wanted me to tell the former Senator Chucklesworth “woof!”

  • http://www.deepgreensea.mindsay.com Toren

    Is it me, or is Chuck flipping us off. LOOK AT THAT ONE TOE!

    Go Chuck, GO!

  • http://ladymadaysia.blogdrive.com Amber

    It captures all the essence of what is ‘dog’.

  • http://www.nordensved.com Nicole

    Is that Chuck? Because it looks like he’s got a ridge. *Fuck* how I want a Ridgeback.

  • Mari

    Loved your latest entry. I’m thinking the “baby Einstein” is, in fact, Leta. With a high-pitched shriek she gets what she wants and she doesn’t have to waste any energy moving around to do it!

  • Ms. Belle

    Walking is for suckers…

  • Lisa

    Leta moves alright: she moves around in her crib mysteriously at night, and she moves mountains with that scream. Go, Leta, Go! Go, dog, go!

    I love them both!

    My son didn’t talk until he was almost 2. He pointed and grunted and he always got what he wanted, so why bother!

  • Charles

    sorry this has nothing to do with anything but i thought you should see how messed up some people are

    This photo looks like a scan from a newspaper article. Neat effect.

    If I let my dog run off the leash with that kind of abandon, something would scare him and he’d flip out and run into the street or try to climb a tree or something. AHHH! A leaf! Oh no, a terrifying crack in the sidewalk!! Holy shit, my shadow is trying to eat meeee!

    It must be so awesome having a normal dog.

  • http://www.betterdayscrafts.com andrea

    Wow Charles, holy shit. I only looked for a minute and I’m absolutely horrified. Where is this taking place??? More importantly, where do these people live so that I can go skin them alive and set them on fire?? Wow.

    Charles: That link made me nauseous. Seriously.

    tiffany: You may not have a “normal” dog, but Mouse is very, um…special. And talented! And almost literate! (He’s also very cute.)

    are all four of his paws off the ground at the same time? fast-leopard chuck.

  • http://nothanksat.blogspot.com/ nothanks

    I love chuck

  • jess

    Ehh….I prefer pictures of Leta. Chuck’s a dog, and though puppies are cute, he still looks the same as any yellow lab I’ve seen. You kind of have to meet a dog like Chuck in person to really fall in love. I prefer golden retrievers. But Heather, by God I love your baby and husband, and you’re writing is genius!

  • girl in sf

    chuck brings me out of lurk mode.

    i woke up in a good mood today, which is rare for a workday. i thought, surely it can’t just be ’cause it’s friday. but now i know. it’s not just friday, it’s Chuck Friday!! RUFF!

  • http://eyesaverted.blogspot.com/ Wicked H


    Thanks God It’s Chuck Friday!!!!!

  • U.B.

    Tiffany — normal dogs are for wimps (and, if you read past posts, Chuck is *not* a normal dog).

    Dare to be dorky!

  • http://barrenmare.blogspot.com B. Mare

    Oh Chuck! If only you could be mine….!

  • http://www.betterdayscrafts.com andrea

    Okay, not to harp on the kitten thing but that can’t possibly be real, can it? It looks like it might be a joke, but damn. I want to know for sure.

  • http://www.kempland4u.com Gooooder

    he looks like a wild man

    what a great picture!
    I love your site!

  • Mary in Sacramento

    Chuck Friday!! Ruff, mofos!

    That’s an Atomic Dog if I ever saw one.

    I, too wonder how Heather takes motion pictures so well. I think that it has to do with her Nikon D70 taking a picture every time you press the button, rather than having a delay like most digital cameras.
    I’m trying to figure the same thing out myself with my “camera that does not cost $1200 so therefore I cannot take Dooceworthy photos” christmas present.

    Someday. Someday.

    *Chuck runs from the Silent Scream of Death, the scream so high and silent in pitch that only souls in Hell and dogs can hear its demon din*

    I am going shopping with my goddaughter this weekend. Like you care. Anyway, my point is: we are going shopping for clothes for her birthday. She is 14 and perfect.
    She was born, and in her baby-hood it was discovered that she was unable to crawl. She was also unable to move from lying down to sitting. She had no therapy. One day she walked.
    And we are going shopping tomorrow.
    You are doing all the right things. I am trying hard not to be a stranger who give stupid advice or makes dumb comments. I am trying to be a stranger who encourages and applauds you.
