Chuck, age 4 months, first instance of clothed humiliation

That’s our apartment in LA. Do you see the baby fat seeping out of the collar of the shirt?

    Very cute. I, too, have subjected my dogs to clothed humiliation, but it’s so worth it.

  • so not blonde

    Glass? Oh, my.

    It does look a little like Chuck is sportin’ a carrot.

    Heather, this is not how we should treat the beloved animals of our lives, who give us nothing but pure joy. I’m going to have to talk to GOD about this.

    Good god he looks so…elated! Could he be any better adjusted?

    omg! he doesn’t look humiliated at ALL! he looks downright pleased with his leave-it-to-beaver-looking-self. all he needs is a doggy beanie. ;)

    you know, he’s quite a cutie. if i were only a dog…

    Dooce,

    I think air can get into the blood stream when “blowing into someone’s ‘taco’” because the vagina leads to the cervix which leads into the uterus, which leads to fallopian tubes. At the end of the fallopian tubes there is a little empty space before the ovaries, and I’m assuming a small air bubble can get pushed out of the fallopian tube and make its way into the bloodstream that way.

    Long link here, but it’s a good picture:

    (or you can just search google images for “uterus” and it’s the first picture listed)

    At least the shirt is somewhat sporty and manly. My childhood friend and I used to dress her (male) dog in her cast-off ballet tutus. That was one pissed-off schnauzer, let me tell you.

    Air bubbles or no air bubbles, no one’s blowing into my taco without taking me to dinner and a movie first.

    When our yellow lab used to go into heat, my mom put my brother’s Underoo’s on her for the duration of the heat. I don’t know who was more humiliated – my brother or the dog.

  • maggie

    Oh, and I forgot to mention–Mrs. George #2 is right: it’s highly unlikely for a small air embolus to cause any harm–you need to have a HUGE amount of air introduced into the bloodstream. Most small amounts of air are just absorbed as blood passes through the lungs. Large amounts of air can cause death because they can obstruct outflow of blood from the right side of the heart–they’re too big to make it to the lungs to be resorbed and actually block blood from being sent through the body.

    lol…he looks so cute! And he looks like he’s happy about wearing the clothes…

    Dr. Fever- I could be wrong, as I do not know you in an anatomical manner, but I’m fairly certain you do not have a taco.

    Going for horizontal stripes to make him appear larger was a good choice. Now the other dogs in the neighborhood will think twice before messing with Chuck!

  • another tip for Carol

    I was going to type out another G-spot tip, but I’m just feeling to shy. So, I’ll just say… um… try having him sit on the couch with you on top.

  • http://www.kempland4u.com Gooooder

    Doggies love wearing shirts!

  • yes I’m blonde

    another tip for carol: oh yes, that’s a good one too.

    I don’t recommend to Heather to try that position (on the couch) while Leta is sitting next to her and John, watching Boo-Bah on the tv…

  • erin

    Oh wow – I hope my mom never sees this picture. It will just “prove” her theory that dogs LOVE to be dressed up hahah.

    What Another Tip For Carol said = the best orgasm of my LIIIIFE. OMG.

    Minor detail, wasn’t a he, but the rest still applies.

  • contessa

    poor little Chuckles.

    ahh, that explains why shy got so quiet all of a sudden

  • Cheryl

    The first thing I notice is the AWESOME decor. I am in the process of decorating my new apartment. I’m horrible– any hints?

    I just love seeing pictures of Chuckles, TGIF!!!

  • hmmm?

    or is everyone too busy trying out the tips?

  • http://ebirkhol.diaryland.com e

    haha – it looks like he LIKES it – maybe you should dress him up more often!

    That is so great. My boyfriend does that to our cats, they tend to look far, far less amused with the situation however. That is one of the great things about dogs, you can degrade them and they love you more for it, with cats they just go pee on your shoe.

  • http://livejournal.com/users/eternalgrace Cassie

    The cutest part is that he just looks so happy… Too funny. :)

    HEATHER, THIS IS GOD. YOU MUST PRAISE ME FOR KEEPING THOSE ULTRA-LEFT WING PETA PEOPLE OFF OF YOUR DOORSTEP FOR YOUR UN-ETHICAL TREATMENT OF YOUR ANIMAL.

    THEY ARE MINIONS OF EVIL. GOD LIKEY HIS PORTERHOUSE.

    THAT IS ALL.

  • Hee hee

    …the award, of course, being the one sponsored by Taco Bell!!!

  • http://www.danielleblog.com Danielle

    I have these images of you trying to wrestle his front legs into that shirt…

    “umpf! hold still! uh. almost got it. yes! who’s a good boy? who’s a good boy? poptart?”

  • mooloobean

    come on heather you are supposed to be taking the pictures every day, not digging through the old album. couldn’t you have put a shirt on Chuck and photographed him now, on this very day?

  • http://www.xanga.com/schmoopy liz

    it must be because he’s so young, but doesn’t his head look disproportionally HUGE?

    i’m so glad that, with age, he’s grown into his head.

  • http://humanwrites.blogspot.com Dr. Johnny Fever

    But I DO have a taco, Amanda B. It’s just in the back.

  • http://www.mycircuslife.com Circus Kelli

    Hee hee hee… that is a GREAT picture! What a happy puppy!!

  • http://georgeboone.blogspot.com GEORGE!

    Chuck looks like my brother’s dog Targa in this picture.

  • Annalise

    I just cant imagine how you actually got that on Mr Chuckles…but what a model he makes, sitting perfect and pretty for the camera! He’s even got the celebrity teeth-flashing-smile going on….RUFF CHUCK!

  • http://www.veryzen.blogspot.com Amanda B.

    Dr. Fever- impressive. Most impressive.

    Hi George!

  • beautifulmess

    you should have seen the mortified look on my great dane’s face when my husband dressed her in his entire postal uniform. fortunately, the pants fit her perfectly.

  • http://humanwrites.blogspot.com Dr. Johnny Fever

    Do you have a taco, GEORGE!?

  • http://amusingmyselfdaily.blogspot.com Molly

    That is GREAT! He has no clue how silly he looks! What a happy dog..

  • http://www.smoochdog.com Michelle

    Chuck does not look a day older now than he does in that photo. And to think after being dressed in THOSE stripes (don’t you know horizonal strips make a dog look fat) he stuck around for all the rest. Good dog Chuck!

  • alyson

    This is the funniest thing I have seen all day..I am laughing my head off..thank you Chuck!

  • http://www.itssonotaboutyou.com sporty

    He kinda looks happy there.

  • http://www.culturalconfusion.blogspot.com Gia on Guam

    What I want to know is if Leta will inherit that shirt…hand me downs from the older sibs.

  • http://www.lemonlight.org Angie

    I can’t help wondering what Chuck would be wearing these days if Leta hadn’t come along and usurped his furry bottom as the Armstrong Top Model!?

    He must have the patience of a mormon saint.
