    AWESOME! I’ve tried stacking milkbones on my dog’s head, but she can’t even wait for me to place one on there before she’s tilting down to eat it. That’s one very cool dog you have.

    Hey, I’m more impressed with your stacking ablities than anything.

  • Good-Dees

    I think Chuck should try that with you, but using dirty martinis. Bet Chuck wins.

    Oh, that really made my day. What a sweetheart.

    Oh, the terror in his eyes…

  • jenny

    Oh, god, I laughed so hard I cried. I love it when they are stacked up in front of his eyes. What a good boy!

  • Divot

    Oh my gosh, that brought the biggest smile to my face. What a good pup!!!!

    This made me laugh so hard that my cheeks hurt, I choked on my own spit, and boss came in to see if I was okay. Now that I can breathe again I’m going to watch it again.

    Here’s what I want to know: How do you teach a dog to do that and where can I get the instructions? I’m dying to teach The Emma Dog. ;) http://www.flickr.com/photos/fuzzball/sets/347703/

    I bet he had no clue what lay in store for him that day he saw the tall weepy chick approach and ask the lady bringing him to the shelter if she could hold him…

    I especially like the film noir look to this trick. I’m also jealous because my dog would kill you and bury you in the back yard for a chicken jerky treat.

  • Ibeejd

    That just made my very bad day into one of laughter and smiles. I just love your dog!

  • brandy

    I almost died when you placed the treat OVER HIS EYES!!
    Like a jerky blindfold!
    I just don’t know how he does it! I don’t even have the will power to balance that much jerky on my head!

  • destiny

    For a dog to sit still for that long he would have had to have snuck into your secret stash of Valium. That, or he is a stuffed dog.

  • JennJenn

    Jenga! Jenga! Jenga!

    God that’s a fun game. I remember when my sister and I used to play Jenga on the glass coffee table.
    Mom would always get angry at us that we were, “scratching the table, girls!! Can’t you play that on the floor??”.

    No Ma, we can’t.

    I love Chuck.

    “Okay puppy. Okay. Okay!”

    Hee hee. Ah Chuck. Best behaved dog in the world.

    My little dog would have caved under the pressure, whimpering until the cruelty stopped. Or actually, more likely, gotten completely confused and dropped everything, rolled over, sitten pretty, humped the cat and then eaten everything in sight.

    Suchagoodboy! He actually looks like he’s working *with* you and not just “being a good dog”. I just love Chuck.

  • http://shoeism.blogspot.com Thérèse

    Totally unrelated to this post, but I have to say: just can’t help but laugh every time I’m about to “make a comment” because for some reason, for some inexplicable, random reason, the wording reminds me of “make a poo”.

    I didn’t say it made sense. But then, if ever there was an appropriate website on which to voice that thought… hee hee hee.

  • Molicious

    I wish I could get my dog to do that! She’s such an undisciplined shit that I couldn’t even attempt such a thing.

  • http://sandrascanadablog.blogspot.com Sandra

    HE’S DRUGGED! Look at those glassy eyes!
    *grin*

  • http://www.myaimistrue.com Amber

    Basically if you get within four inches of my boston terrier’s nose with anything A) resembling food or B) smelling like cheese, she’ll pretty much take your hand off trying to get to it. Food? How could it NOT be meant for eating immediately.

    Chuck, you’re so patient. Like a little furry monk.

  • Monyikka

    oh i am SO trying that with our housemate’s super-well trained pooch!

    the things you do to chuck… it’s… it’s… it’s downright inspiring!

  • http://vertigobutterfly.blogspot.com vertigobutterfly

    That was FANTASTIC!

  • Pascha

    Oh my god, I couldn’t stop laughing! Did he at least get to eat some of the jerky as a reward?

  • http://www.myspace.com/pigtailjess muirne81

    I love Chuck’s slightly creepy unblinking stare.

    Seems to me he’s thinking, in succession:

    1. “Now what?”
    2. “OK, what the hell is this?”
    3. “Just wait until you go to sleep and then we’ll see who’s stacking and laughing.”

    Do you think he realized that the longer he sat there the more bacon might be in it for him?

    Our 13-year-old dog Jake sleeps with his eyes open. Quite disturbing.

    Chuck is the best dog ever. Did you hear the recent news story about the German Shepherd who followed a toddler out onto the roof of their house and barked until the neighbors saw them and grabbed the toddler off the roof? (No, I’m not sure how either of them got on the roof to begin with.)

    I thought of Chuck and Leta right away. I bet he’d do the same thing if she ever were to get into a delicate situation. (How dorky am I?)

  • HalfwayCrucified

    Isn’t it interesting that this is more entertaining than 98.997% of what television has to offer?

  • TheGirlWho

    Chuck Chuck Bo Buck, Banana Fana Fo…. Good one, Chuck!

    All those hours logged watching Dog Whisperer are paying off for y’all! Ya done got the best behaved dog.. EVER! Until he snaps and goes on a neighborhood rampage, forcing all the good Mormon dogs to participate in Opus Dei rituals, cross dress, balance things on their heads and the like…

    You’re sooooooooooooooooo mean!

  • SarahLou

    I love when you were like “It’s Ok, puppy.” And he had this look like “Really?..You sure?…”

    So tolerant and adorable.

  • http://www.spankoff.blogspot.com TerraT

    are you kidding? my dog can’t even stay still at the sight of the leash, my shoes, or air. I would tranq him but my vet told me to cut it out.

  • Nat W.

    Haha, oh my God, that poor dog!!

  • http://bucky4eyes.com Bucky Four-Eyes

    I’ve never had a dog who would sit that still for ONE treat being stacked.

  • Karen

    We used to do a similar trick with my childhood dog except it was Fig Newtons cause my father is an alien and loves those weird things.

    We rarely made it past one Newton on the nose before the temptation was too much.

  • Scott

    God bless the Congressman.

  • elismor

    I can’t even begin to count the ways that I love Chuck.

    I think he might be my hero.

  • Kristen from MA

    what a good doggie!

    and what CRAZY people!

  • Gooseberried

    Awww, Chuck is so pretty.

  • http://www.centiemme.blogspot.com Penny

    I’m a huge fan of Chuck! He’s such a good dog. Thanks for the laugh today!

  • http://schmutzie.blogspot.com schmutzie

    That confirms it. I’m evil. For sure. I experienced far too much joy at watching Chuck’s determined concentration under the weight of all that chicken jerky.

  • http://www.lostinthought.net/blog Vicky

    Is it wrong that I wasn’t totally outraged by that? hehe, I knew Chuck was biddable, but I didn’t know just HOW MUCH.
