He could hear the mailman walking over from next door which means TREAT IS WALKING OVER TO OUR HOUSE. TREAT. TREAT. JUST GIVE ME THE FUCKING TREAT.

    Yeah Dooce, I guess it was your “demise” – out of the having-to-put-up-with-the-nasty-boss working world. Poor you.

    Leta may scream more often than your old boss, but she is a much more deserving boss, don’t you think?


  • sweetney

    this photo can also be seen in the oxford english dictionary beside the definition of the word “taut.”

  • shmallowsdad

    Amazingly, my daughter has the same look on her face. But that’s cuz she’s watching Dora.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I just read what I wrote. I meant that the author is a total retard, not you Lola! Ugh, I am a ‘tard!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Demise means an untimely end, Lola, but the author of that article didn’t use the term correctly. He should have said “the demise of her career”. He said “her demise”. He used demise to describe Heather, not the job. Total retard.

  • RazDreams

    OH! I get it now. “It’s terribly hot down here.” I thought for a few minutes that it was, um, hot “down there” where the disease was, you know, itchy DOWN THERE, itchy and hot…

    But you mean, it’s hot down there in hell. Where your soul is rotting, amen. Got it. Whatta dork I am.

  • AyEnDeeAreEeAyAitch

    I love that Chuck!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Go to this site:

    They even use the term “dooced” as the finale to the article! Before you know it, “dooced” will be added to Webster’s.

  • Dale Cruse

    First! No? *rolls eyes*

  • Gooooder

    eventual demise.


  • Laurie

    Wow, look at his eyes. It’s like he is thinking “what was that? Was that a treat I hear?”

  • Kassi

    He looks like he might be just about to launch himself at the door.

  • Stacey

    Oh look, Laura Copeland jumped the gun on being first! LMAO

  • Scott

    I think Chuck may just be a stuffed life sized action figure of a dog with fully poseable limbs and a kung-fu grip. Anyone with me on this?

  • Theatre Mom

    Jerri Blank!
    I’m rivoted… I can’t believe I’ve NEVER heard of this… I just googled and I’m feeling like an uber-dork for missing out! Unfortunately this didn’t make it to Canadian cable, at least not in my world.

    Thanks mg2 for clueing me in, I’m on a mission to hunt down the DVD of season one.

    Oh yeah, Chuck looks fab today too.

  • red

    enjoy the attention — you are worth it. we all think you’re fabulous!

  • Melanie S.

    Chuck, your are one cute dog! Come visit cousin George and while you’re here, come meet our dogs. (We have treats!!)

  • Carrs

    i love chuck fridays, thanks heather

    he also kind of looks like he might be undergoing a puppy prostate exam

    congrats on all the attention and success!

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Wow, you must use Clinique to get such a rosy post mortem glow.

  • Teri

    love your blog heather.. i read every day.. in case you see this post wayyyyyyyyy down here here is another article about the blog thing on the washington post

  • Pissy Britches

    Chuck is such a handsome man..Have you ever let him get him some poochie luvin?

  • Cristin

    sorry dang, couldn’t resist, but you are not last :)

  • SuMMer

    Chcuk is one alert–but studly–mofo! My dog does the same exact thing whenever anyone breaths in the direction of our door. I’m oddly craving ‘peanut butter balls’, whatever they may be. This is the 2nd day in a row that they’ve been advertised on this here website, and it’s all your fault if they start popping up in my dreams. :-)

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Umm wow. Nice Butt post.

    There is NO WAY IN HELL I would ever stick something into someones rectum. And now I will never be able to eat steak again. Thanks.

  • michele

    There’s another article on the Washington Post website that mentions and the trials and tribulations of blogging.

  • Teri

    damn sorry wrong url… here is the washington post

  • lola

    demise doesn’t just mean death but the end of something… a career?

  • Dang Cold…

    its on Cristin :)

  • Jodi who blogs

    That is too cute! He looks like he is going to run at any second.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Its Chuck Saturday too? UGH I hate it when bloggers have lives ;0)

  • Em

    HA! Chuck makes me laugh. Hope you have a great happy weekend in Utah.

  • Dang Cold…


  • hannah

    I’m glad to see the letter got there. I’m also sorry to hear about your untimely death. I actually swear my uni’s newspaper doesn’t have an editorial team, or at least they don’t have a picky enough one.

  • Kassi

    Ok…it’s already 10:45 am in MI, where’s a new post? “doocejunkie”

  • Maddie’s Mom

    I totally forgot it was Friday until I saw Chuck! Alright!

    Makes me miss my dog. I swear, he looks like my greyhound. Are you sure he isn’t part greyhound?

  • Cooleyface

    I think Chuck’s East Coast twin lives with us. It’s eerie!

  • Robyn

    I’m an idiot. Plain stupid.

    Well, they sort of looked like you…..

    Still, very interesting read.

  • mg2

    I’ve seen more action than this at a church dance.

    By the way, I’d wrap Brad Pitt’s lower colon around a telephone pole if he’d let me. BRAD, CALL ME!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I am saddened to hear of your demise. Yes, Heather, that was a poor choice of words on the part of that journalist. Someone should send the author of that article a thesaurus.

    And yes, you do seem to be causing an international sensation. Everyone seems to know who Dooce is now!

  • Becky

    The title of the article offered by ‘Katie-be-bored-at-work’(,3604,1410117,00.html) gave me a laugh, because it seemed somehow oddly connected to your Friday post. Specifically the mention of blow jobs.

    I can’t quite figure out exactly what is meant by “Bad-Mouth Jobs,” but apparently they can be costly. ;)

  • mg2

    Extra, extra read all about it: Jerri Blank pops STIFFIE! -Jerri Blank

  • Gia on Guam

    Gah!! I just realized I’ve been linking to someone else’s site.

    I find it hard to believe that so many ppl seem to be ignorant about non vanilla sex.

    Fess up ppl!

  • annabelle

    I’m left wanting more.

  • Creepy Susie

    hey! just read the yahoo article, dooce-mania is spreading!

    Today’s post made me gasp aloud! My hubby looked up and said “Doocing, babe?” and i was like ” yeah babee! need my fix”

    perfect way to start the day — caffeine and dooce : )

  • Shawna

    Does Chuck still consider Leta to be his treat as well?

  • Susan

    Saw the Yahoo story too – nice way to wake up on a Sat. morning. :)

    So, like, is that how I tell my freinds from my not-friends? It that’s the key, then I’m friendless, cuz nobody I know ever asked me any of that stuff. I was asked once by a stranger in a car, but that doesn’t count, and I got out of that car pretty quick after he asked.

    WHich brings me to anotehr question: if the friends of girl and wife know about his, erm, specs, then what do friedns of his know about her? Do all teh guy freinds know something about the wife?

    Come on now, let’s hear what y’all know about yer buddy’s girl.

  • becaru

    Earth to Chuck…

  • clautje

    Looks like your expression “Dooced” has taken on a life of it’s own..

    And that is happening enough that there is even a word for it — getting “dooced.” Blogger Heather B. Armstrong coined the phrase in 2002, after she was fired from her Web design job for writing about work and colleagues on her blog,

    pretty neat, eh?
