    hmm, I’m having the same issues at #11 & #58 running OSX G4 firefox & Safari.

    I LOVE me some Chuck – the food is WAY more important than personal comfort.

    More, please!

    I just love Chuck stories. We had a dog once that stuck her snoot down into a Wendy’s Frosty cup to lick whatever was left, and it got stuck and she was NOT a happy dog! Animals do goofy stuff for ice cream… one of my cats is always just riveted when my husband and I eat ice cream from bowls. She ignores me, but gets in his lap or leeeeans over his shoulder from the back of the sofa like a hairy little vulture. The other night she stuck her paw into his bowl. WTF, cat!

    Keep up the awesome work

    Now we know what dewclaws are for – they’re for removing the ice cream carton when done!

    and dayum, that dog *does* have a long neck!

  • http://www.iprettymuchhateeverything.com Torrie

    You should see the pictures of ME with my head stuck in an ice cream container!

    Good times.

  • Kerry

    I wish I could fit my head in the carton!
    Hilarious video. Thanks for sharing!!

    I wish I could fit my head in the carton! It’s just too tight!

    Who cares that you toture your dog ? He deserves it. Those conservative Catholics are bringing down the church. If he wants some damn help being protected from the likes of you, I suggest Chuck attend Call to Action. Then us liberal Catholics might intervene. Until then, that damn dog is on his own.

    just wanted to say that I couldn’t view the video using Firefox (although had audio) but when I copy and pasted the link into explorer it worked great. Also? your photo of the day for April 5, left me breathless. First time ever I wanted to crawl into a photo showing on the moniter. Thanks for a taste of spring.

    Oh by the way, if you want to see the pic I posted it on my blog, click me baby!

    That’s fabulous. If it makes you feel any better (not that you felt bad, but if you’re looking for another “not abusive, but entertaining in a ‘oh, how funny that they’re ridiculous’ sort of way” story), we used to be very into feeding our dog obscene amounts of peanut butter and then laughing hysterically while she took about 12 hours to stop the tongue-lapping.

  • TripTikGirl

    I love that video!! I miss having a dog, but I can’t tell my husband that, otherwise we’d be at the pound tomorrow!

  • http://www.snickrsnack.com Snickrsnack Katie

    That is seriously the cutest video ever! Chuck is such a funny dog. And anyone who has a problem with him licking up the icecream needs to shut up! It was only a little bit!

    I just got a dog from the Humane Society on Friday and I think she may be related to Chuck. I have pictures of her on my site. She seriously is a super mutt much like Chuck. I just can only hope that she comes out of her shell – she was abused we think and is scared of everyone but me. I can’t wait for the days where I can stick ice cream cartons on her snout without her being scared!

  • bored_in_kansas


    I’ve been reading your blog for over a year now, and I’m so jealous!!! You have a beautiful daughter, a adorable dog, and a damn good looking husband :D When I grow up can i be you? LOL. No i’m just joking!!

    I watched the Video 3 times!!! He’s So CUTE!!! Right now my 2 doxies are fighting over a plastic lid off my bottle water. Hmm…maybe I should trade them in for a dog in a bucket of ice cream!!!

    Well take care:D

  • Monika


    Chuck made me laugh so hard I had tears in my eyes! What a rogue!

  • sekretninja

    You are one of the funniest people I (feel like I) know! After a sucky day at work, I treat myself to your blog, and you never let me down! I cry, I laugh, I snort…it’s all good.

    Today is no exception. I am not a dog lover…more along the lines of soon-to-be crazy cat lady…but Chuck’s cuteness and crazy antics make me wish cats were cool like that. :)

    Thank you for sharing your family with us.

  • http://yonkogirl.blogspot.com/ jozet


    And yes, we did the jujube trick with our beagle. Hours of fun.

    We also had a dog that would molest grapes.

    I’ve also seen my cousin get his head stuck in a potato chip barrel.

    Good times!

  • http://minicia.bluegarter.org Mia

    I could see baby Chuck, but I can’t see ice cream Chuck, and after the day that I just had, I SO wish that I could. I can hear him, and the laughing, but that just makes it more sad that I can’t see him!!

  • Megan B

    That’s awesome.

    I’m having memories of a certain precious kitty who is obsessed with licking pictures. Once I got home after an 8+ hour day of work and she had broken into my bedroom (I had shut and latched the door and she STILL got in!) and knocked some pics off my dresser, and was sitting on the floor, licking them like they were ice cream, when I walked in. Who knows how many hours she had been sitting there before I got home…

  • Stacey

    Sigh. I miss my dog. We used to have the best times watching him roll the beer bottle around, trying his damndest to get the last few drops out. I adore Chuck and look forward to his next pinup calendar!!

  • http://www.jenniferfarwell.com revidescent

    Aww! Ice-Cream-Carton-Head Chuck has me missing my big puppy oaf (who went to Rainbow Bridge in late ’03, and no, not from too much ice cream), in a good way though. Have you tried ice cream cones at the Dairy Queen or McD’s drive-thru? If the carton makes you laugh, it’s also fun when you can get them to lick all the ice cream from an ice cream cone — neatly and in a well-mannered fashion, yet — and then EAT the cone, one bite at a time.

  • http://jongensvoorme.blogspot.com/ Mar99Aug01Jan06

    I let my dog lick one of those small bags of Fritos and lo and behold, she got her face stuck in it. It was hilarious! Why else would I have a dog unless for hours of entertainment!

  • Christy

    My golden retriever lives in foster care with my parents at the moment, and my dad treats her like she’s one of his kids (he’s always loved our family pets, but now she’s the only one left, and has become completely spoiled). THe dog EXPECTS Cheerios in the morning.
    Of course, my father’s habit of giving her a little of everything he eats has created a 93-lb monster.

    And, of course, Chuck’s intelligence was proven when he used his paw to get the container off his face. THat’s a damn smart dog you got there.

  • http://www.randomandodd.com Kristine

    he could have made some pooch happy.

  • Andrea

    I just wanted to say that I’ve read your site from a few months ago, but I’ve gone back and read every entry. I love your irreverence and wit, and your honesty about motherhood & life. I’ve been wondering if I’m going to be an okay mother (one day) and you’ve provided the most honest outlook on motherhood that I’ve seen written. I’m still not sure about it, but that has nothing to do with you. Your photos of Chuck makes me incredibly happy as well. Thank you for sharing your life with us all.

    My dog does the same thing with an empty peanut butter jar. except that she gnaws on the plastic until her GUMS AND TONGUE BLEED. So I DEFINATELY should have my dog taken away from me by PETA.

  • http://www.thenewmiamian.com MiamiGirl

    Don’t worry, I do these things with my two boxers all the time. Sometimes, when my husband I are really bored, we just put things on them and take pictures…we get a good laugh. I think they kind of like it.

  • tk

    Thanks, I needed that today. Way too funny….

    My brother’s dog does a similar trick with an empty yogurt container…. well, actually any kind of container that is empty and needs licking. It’s hours and hours of entertainment.

  • Talon

    That’s FANTASTIC!!

    Meaning, that’s total Chuck fanservice!! (holds up a banner saying We love Chuck!! We love Chuck!! More chuckles humili…er…Tric…er…FEATS OF MARVEL!!!

    Raven’s (my dawg…because I gotta mention him naturally!!) big ol’ head wouldn’t fit in a carton as neatly as Chuck’s perfect, sleek, blonde head though. *snickers*

    My parent’s had a cat named Liza Jane, and she used to get the leavings in Mom’s ice cream bowl. She was only interested in the chocolate though. She never really learned to like orangesicle. That was inbetween hunting grizzly bears and whales, depending on the season.

  • Nat W.

    Haha, that’s great. I loved the pics when you first posted them, and now I love the video! Especially because I do equally fun things with my dogs. And I have 5. Muahaha. Lots of fun.

  • Kala Lily

    Congressman Chuck, taking bribes once again. Is he in cahoots with DeLay?

  • kidsmom

    I’m so glad I get to read two of your postings today. I’ve had a BAAAADDDDD day and need a fix.

    In general, people suck. Once I’m done raising kids I’m only going to socialize with my dog and his friends.

  • cindyloohoo

    We have a dog that looks exactly like Chuck, except ours is stupid. Whoever said chocolate doesn’t kill all dogs is right. Ours has eaten his body weight in the stuff— last easter he stole and ate all of our kids’ choclate easter bunnies; four pounds worth. Hasn’t killed him yet… I’m still waiting and hoping…

  • mayberry_blonde

    My God that is hysterical! It reminds me of a time when my neighbors dog came home from visiting the local elementary school (which is less than a quarter mile away from where we live…no leash law in this county), with an empty over sized cafeteria style mayonnaise jug on his whole head. Seriously, I swear. That one topped the cake for me. lol

    Great video of Chuck and oh, LOVE your new haircut!

  • http://thefathousewife.blogspot.com/ Strizz

    I tried to suffocate myself with ice cream after my 3rd child. Can you say gaining back all the pregnancy weight one half gallon at a time? I bet you can.

  • http://www.xanga.com/gora_kagaz Gora_Kagaz

    haha…that’s funny…your dog’s really cute…and i LOVE cookies ‘n cream ice cream…it’s right up there with chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream….yum.

  • http://www.digitalpretzel.com fred

    this odly reminds me of that time i got my hand stuck in a tube of pringels.

    damn chips.
    damn ice cream.

    every 5 seconds someone gets a body part suck in a food receptacle.. when will the madness stop?!

  • http://istoedejoana.blogspot.com/ Joana

    I think it’s very cruel to do that to your dog: eating all the ice-cream and only leaving him the goo in the bottom of the carton! ;)
    Great video, btw.

  • http://www.catheroo.com catheroo

    I love that your first instinct was to capture the image.

    Clearly, Dreyer’s is missing a huge market. And it’s nice to see how environmentally conscious Chuck is, cleaning out the ice cream tub before it hits the curb for recycling. Good boy!

  • Julie

    I had no trouble hearing the audio but I couldn’t see the video. FYI, I have an Apple iBook running 10.4.6 with version 7.0.4 of Quicktime.

    Love your site. :-)

  • erin rae

    Damn – since I don’t touch feces or PCs, does that mean I’m out of luck?

    I can only see the play button and bar. G4 running OSX, Firefox 1.5

    I want to see the supermutt in action!

  • http://squeakywheel.livejournal.com Kate

    I went to the trouble of making a TypeKey account just so I could tell you that Chuck is adorable! I love how he uses his paw to get the carton off. It’s just so precious! :)

  • Kate

    Hmm, similar to what I do when I finish a carton of ice cream. Except… I’m in.. Chuck’s position… eh heh… what?

  • http://www.monkeythoughts.com monkey

    Priceless. I used to dress my dog up in my easter bonnets. And I may or may not have put a tutu on him. But I think the worst was when I would wrap his head up with an Ace bandage. Then we would see how tiny his head really was. Keep in mind, I was young at the time.
    That dog LOVED Oreos, ice cream, cake. He thought he was people and even had his own spot for birthday parties. I miss that dog. *sigh*

  • Laura Horacefield

    You totally made Chuck’s week! He loved that. My dog loves ice cream too but he would try to eat the carton too because he could smell the ice cream on the cardboard?!?

  • UndoneLady

    We loved the video of Chuck. My two boys were laughing hysterically.

  • http://madkitten.blogspot.com/ MadMeer

    I should try that with my cats…and a smaller container. Maybe some pink ice cream. Pink looks good on them.

  • Diva*Licious

    I love the pictures!!! I used to have a miniature doberman that would do the same thing with the empty ice cream cartons (although, it was the little individual sizes b/c anything else woulda covered him up). Love your blog!

  • Chloe

    Toast for the dog for breakfast?

    Ha! Pikers.

    I was making our Lab his own bowl of oatmeal up until recently when he started audibly f@rting and I thought maybe it was due to the half and half.

    With that long neck of his, I always think Egyptian when I see Chuck.

  • kimmiwah

    Count me in as an irresponsible pet owner as well. It sure is fun though to put that huge dallop of peanut butter on the roof of their mouths!
