  • gabip

    I want one of them there Chuck thingys. Jeez he’s a cutie, no wonder he cops a tude so often.

  • kidsmom

    You have such cute kids!

    OMG he is SO cute!!!! Okay, I’m generally a lurker, but the cuteness of his puppy face made me so happy that I had to say something!!

    I have been wanting to put little movies on my site too. Curious about how you did it…if you feel like sharing the mojo.

    One of my best friends is mormon and my husband is an almost x mormon, so I absolutely die rolling on the floor laughing at so many of your stories. We have kids together so you can imagine the weird fights we have over owning a coffee maker and how this may or may not influence said children!!!

    Aaaaaak! Can’t breathe…. TOO CUTE….


    I hope you can live with the fact that you have killed me.

    I am dead.

    Well, youtube didn’t work for me either, but that picture of Puppy Chuck is too freakin’ cute. I can only imagine what havoc he is wreaking in the video…

    And DeafMomWorld…I don’t think Heather meant she was going to solely do audioblog entries, but they would make an occasional appearance.

    ooh! little chuck is so cute. he’s cute now, too, but there’s something special about puppies, yaknow?

  • http://bigdlittledmistatruffyandme.blogspot.com Karen Rani

    Boy he was a scrappy little bugger, wasn’t he? SO FREAKING CUTE! If I had dog ovaries, they would be itchy right now. Ruffy is 4 and I would love a new puppy to add to this chaos, but um, No.

  • eeek

    Ahhh… playing ‘bite the camera’ we’re good at that. But our favorite game is ‘run and hide’ from the camera.
    Chuck is adorable now but as a baby he was blindingly sweet.

  • http://jenny.echo45.com selfmaniac

    Too freaking adorable! As a former streaming media specialist and current stay at home momma, feel free to pick my brain for any video advice!

  • Janine

    my dog does a similar ‘bite the camera’ thing.

    Only the camera has been replaced with my hand, socks, underwear, face, left thigh, foot, misc. toys, knapsack, and yes…..my homework. Do you know how stupid I felt telling my high school english teacher tha my dog ate my assignment??

    My 2¢: I love reading your blog & I enjoy Blurbomat but I already subscribe to more podcasts than I can listen to. Personally, I would likely not listen to/watch any clips you upload on a regular basis (the occassional cut Chuck & “You got the internet on that thing?” will be enjoyed).

  • http://islaygirl.typepad.com islaygirl

    omg, i somehow missed that you adopted chuck as a pup. i thot he came full-size. i don’t need any encouragement to get a dog (i have 4, and my eye is on #5) but he is just adorable.

  • http://vanilj.wordpress.com/ Ida (Swede in Quebec)

    Oh – what a cute/annoying little pup! Attacking the camera AND looking absolutely adorable at the same time… only pups can do that!
    I look forward to other movies!

  • Tessa

    Video and audio posts??
    New mastheads every month?!
    (And great idea to post at youtube as well.)

  • http://meghanns.com/journal meghann

    pretty good for not being a proper video camera. I look forward to mroe :)

  • http://sararah.livejournal.com Sarah

    Glad to see Chuckacabra existed from birth!

  • http://august8th.net laurie

    Aww! he’s sooo cute and precious!

  • http://truthsandhalftruths.typepad.com Nils Ling

    I love other peoples’ puppies. My own puppies would drive me nuts. I suppose it’s like being a grandparent and being able to give them back when you’re done oohing and awwing over the cutidity.

  • http://stridey.blogspot.com Charles Hawtrey

    So young and cute!

    I think the idea of regular videos are great (assuming the server doesn’t combust)!

    You’d never think from the movies that he would grow up to be a former Congressman.

  • Lisa

    I can almost smell the puppy breath in that clip.

  • http://www.nothingbutbonfires.com Nothing But Bonfires

    I’m loving Chuck, of course, but most of all, I’m loving the fact that there were THREE DIFFERENT FLOOR SURFACES in your old apartment. You must have had some mad Swiffer skills.

  • http://12tutufondue.blogspot.com Bill

    OK, my cat doesn’t answer to “Sandy” so I’m going to call him “Chuck.” Don’t worry, he’s a cute cat!

  • http://crazyamandaworld.blogspot.com YankeeAmanda

    Chuck was very cute as a puppy, but I’m supposing you had someone perform an exorcism on him, because he certainly was acting like a dog possessed!

  • http://deafmomworld.blogspot.com deafmomworld

    Oh, adorable pup! I wish I have a pup just like yours! I remember the good old days of chasing around a little puppy, going through the training terrors, sigh.

    Anyway, I’m begging you, if you plan to change your blogs into audio, I’d die of deprivation!!! See… I’m deaf and can’t hear to save my life. Oh, Dooce, oh can you take mercy and leave your fantastic blog same as usual so I can read in enjoyment everyday?

    Oh Dooce, have mercy on me!

  • mmmfrogs

    got it to work now. cute :)

  • Carli

    I can practically SMELL the puppy breath! And the pee puddles in the corners, the overpowering smell of Resolve, sweat and stress. The puppy years are a great training ground for the toddler years. Hey, I wonder if rolled up newspapers work on 3 year olds or not…..

  • empresschrys

    Dammit Heather!

    I have been fighting off the urge to get a dog for months now and you go and ruin all that hard work by showing me the most adorable thing I HAVE EVER SEEN.

    I love Chuck now in his angst ridden teenage form. The sight of him as a little ball of puppy fluff is just too much for my heart to take.
    *sigh* I am just going to have to get a puppy. I hope my cats understand…

  • blondeinthemidwest

    Oh how I wish there was a breeder for “Chuck’s”. He is the cutest dog I have EVER seen. No joke…

    I love the fact that I can comment here too!! There have been so many posts that I have wanted to comment positively on and I appreciate the fact that you trust us enough to allow it here and there (again)!! ;o)

  • Cassie

    awww! so cute!!! almost makes me want to give up my “must get a kitten” obession in favor of a puppy. Almost ;)

  • RzDrms

    SL: try this http://youtube.com/watch?v=H5mJZGgbYI4

    no quicktime required. :)

    Heather, LOVE the video feature, and the audio features were adorable, too, and I didn’t care if they did sound like you were in a jet engine.

    The youtube feature works just fine. If you find the hosting on your site takes too much space, make us go to youtube.

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Jules

    I am now officially in love with Chuck! I can’t believe how perky his ears were when he was so teeny. I am having strong urges lately to adopt a new puppy – thank goodness there are no baby Chucks around

  • http://toesockgoddess.livejournal.com ash

    I love puppies anyway, but I think this makes me love them more!

  • http://www.katieeverybody.blogspot.com Katie

    Oh my god, I love it! I hope you can continue to post these.

    I also like the opening up of the comments…

  • kawaface

    ohhhh the fuzzy goodness! aaaaadorable!

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

    The amazing degree of cuteness in your adorable Chuck-pup is how I ended up with four dogs. It started with kids until my husband said “That’s it! NO more kids! I don’t care how cute they are!” Now it’s me telling him, “That’s it! NO more dogs! I don’t care how cute they are!”

  • RzDrms

    shuck is just so darned CUTE! i’m just gonna keep hoping we eventually get to see leta! running! down the sidewalk! yipppeee!!!

    For those of you who can’t view the video, try to see it over here:


  • http://12tutufondue.blogspot.com Bill

    I would think that being that cute would wear one out. And, he’s still got it.

  • Bec in Ozland

    He was as lovely then as he is today. :) I want another puppy! Gimme gimme!

    My poor old dog is sick with cancer and very old, but he still has puppy written all over his face. He was the cutest puppy, a big fluffball of golden retreiver. :)

  • http://justlinda.net JustLinda

    I wasn’t around in the puppy-Chuck days so — awwww… what a cutie.

    Well, I mean, I was around as in ALIVE but I wasn’t a reader-of-the-blog back then. I wasn’t around HERE.

    Just tell me to shut-up. I’d understand. haha

  • http://www.vegasandvenice.com vegasandvenice

    A lurker who has read your site like a human novel and loved it more than any reality show (including Rollergirls), this is my first post.

    This video is very cute and almost makes you forget that there is such a thing as “Post Puppy Depression” It also tries to erase the memory that said syndrome can only be alleviated with prescription drugs for both you and said puppy!!

    Keep on Keepin on! (sometimes I am such a dork!)

  • http://www.hamiltonfamilycircus.blogspot.com Heather

    My Quick time is not working… I’m very sad that I can not see Chuck in action, but the picture is ADORABLE!!

  • http://quirkyfeminist.blogspot.com kate gee

    Oh my god I could not picture The Chuck as a baby… I bet he’s in the basement muttering in angst and embarrassment.

  • http://www.shoesonwrong.net Annie

    I have never before wanted so badly to swallow a puppy whole.

  • Pomme

    Bummer, I’m having the same issue as Hillary and Chelley …

    I’m so glad you opened up comments – I love you/your site and Chuck is beyond adorable as a puppy, which probably played a role in saving him from being chuck’d out the window
