    I tried to balance a single chicken doggie jerky treat on my dog’s snout. All I got was frustration for both of us. He couldn’t figure out why I didn’t just give it to him – and I couldn’t get him to sit still long enough to even attempt to balance it.

    I can only imagine that he’d need therapy if I attempted the spaghetti noodle trick. And the bastard probably has my credit card number and would be calling psychic friends for the “therapy.”

    I am most envious.

    still very sad quicktime doesn’t play. I’ve tried everything…

    Very cute picture, though :-)

  • azuki_bean

    Man, you dog loves you soooooooo much… Mine would let a whole gang invade my house if they gave her spaghetti ;P

    coming here to read what you write is always the highlight of my day.
    *thank you*!

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!! Who didn’t need a Chuck video on a Monday??? Superb. Film-making at its very best. As always, Thank You. L-

    Can’t see the movie :( If I download it, QuickTime refuses to open it. And if I just click on the link and play in the browser, then only sound works. Pity, because it sounds like a fun clip :) (I did update my Quicktime software).

  • fiddlehendrix

    I think Chuck should balance a frozen pizza (still in the box, so you could eat it afterwards) on his head. Now that would be a great video.

    Ooo, or start training him to balance a SPINNING LAZY SUSAN on his head so he could look like one of those revolving displays at the mall.

    Aww, Chuck is so cute! I could just squeeze him!

  • Janerie

    The only thing missing is a pirate. :)

    (Loved the FSM reference, too!)

    Me love me some Chuck! Great video!!

  • http://the-cat-lady.com/ pitt_chick

    What a great pup! Perhaps he is the second coming of the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

    Great, now you have two second comings to prepare your house for…

  • http://myskepsi.com Amy

    That is, without a doubt, the most tolerant dog in the entire world.

  • http://faerietales.faerie-pixels.com Mary Dawn

    so funny! i request a series of chuck wallpapers!

    ….and, why can’t i hear the sound on my quicktime player thing?????

  • http://www.spectacularlynormal.blogspot.com Irina

    Holy shit! What kind of toxic forces are at work in your kitchen to keep this wonder dog so under control? Seriously, Chuck is the embodiment of patience…a concept I have been trying to slip into my 5 year old’s philosophy without success.

  • http://www.biscuitrat.trap17.com biscuitrat

    That’s not even conceivable with my dog; if I were to even attempt that, and if she were able to wait, a rift would form in space-time and I would be upside-down with tentacles.

    So it’s safer for humanity if she only knows wait with movement, not THE EDIBLES. Such a good dog! Many hugs for Chuckles :)

    Bravo! Encore, encore!

  • Adrienne

    What a good dog! He is so cool.

  • http://ccrafton.blogspot.com Candice

    Yes! I’m not going to be able to watch the video for a couple hours (my TiVo is calling me. It’s all like, “Yo, bitch, I’m getting full. Would you come watch Heroes already?”), but I am so looking forward to it. It’s going to make my evening, I’m pretty sure.

  • bobleap

    I am patient, but only to a point. That little bit of fang I show you is a small reminder that I can take your entire hand any time I want to.

  • SnookNSmunch

    This was hilarious. Two questions though:

    Did you go see Yo La Tengo a few weeks ago? It seems like you mentioned it, but I can’t be arsed to to back and look. If so, I’m jealous. Sick baby and no babysitter kind of nixed it for us. Boo.

    And secondly, what is Leta so enthralled in there? TiVo’d Sesame Street?

  • http://www.myspace.com/mandalynnflynn Manda

    Heather!!! My boyfriend and I are very distraught over the fact that none of your videos work for us. I have QuickTime installed. Your videos use to work but ever since I tried to view Chuck eating the sprinkler we have had no success. It makes us very sad because we love Chuck and he brings us much happiness.

  • Emily

    Thanks so much for that!

    It made me laugh really hard – out loud.

    Perma grin for the next (10 minutes at least!)

  • FinellySpinelly

    Why Dooce, why can’t I watch your videos?
    Maybe, just maybe, it’s that I’m a little too impatient to sit and wait for it to start. Please make my Dooce video watching experience better.
    Please oh please!

  • Manda

    Nevermind. Christ just came down from the heaven and touched my computer, thus making it possible for us to enjoy chuck’s cuteness. Such a pretty puppy!

    My five year old autistic son laughed for a full five minutes. That’s entertainment all right! :)

  • CERipkenJr

    So does this mean you’re NOT going to show us your boobz?

  • http://www.sarae.net sarae

    Awesome. That’s the most I’ve laughed all day.

  • http://www.familytais.blogspot.com Dee

    That video was absolutely the best thing that has happened to me all day.

  • Universal-Mutha

    Long time reader, first time commenter – The BEST thing about this video is at several key times the leaning tower of pasta is wobbling close to falling over Chuck actually ADJUSTS the level of his head to assist as you pile.
    He’s one FIERCE mo’fo. Can’t wait for the calendar

  • http://www.margotathena.blogspot.com Margot’s Mom

    That is hilarious!

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

    That is an utterly cruel and inhumane way to treat a proud and noble animal, and it was as awesome as the second coming of Christ, and how awesome will THAT be?

  • Annon

    Good dog!

  • http://karinka1.blogspot.com Carrie Johnston

    It makes me smile.

  • http://www.cadenscastle.com Donny

    Triumphant! Triumphant! Triumphant!

    I had to say that word 3 times because it’s just so… COOL. Makes me think of a creature that’s half elephant, half small vintage car.

  • bobbarama

    I’m not sure which I love more … Chuck or your closing credits.

    OK … Chuck. (But the credits are hysterical)


  • MarkandJennifer

    This isn’t about Chuck, but you so need to check out the lastest Strongbad email: http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail160.html

    You’ll love (or hate) the comment on the pronounciation of crayon.

  • http://hasg.blogspot.com Heather G.

    Alas……my computer can’t handle the video…….or I don’t have the patience for it to download. But I FEEL like I’ve seen it from all your wonderful comments.

    Holy Crap. That was funny. I would love to know how you discovered that little trick.

  • SurprisingWoman

    He is a darling. I love tormenting my pets too.

    Why have pets and children if you can’t make their life hell?


  • http://dailypiglet.wordpress.com Piglet

    He’s totally ready for David Letterman. Seriously, get his people on the phone. Someone. Seriously.

  • karyn

    I had never even entertained the possibility that Chuck IS the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It makes so much sense to me now.

  • dryad271

    You are invited to my house to torture my dogs any time you like. Bring vodka. Wait, nevermind. I have vodka. I will share.

    I’m so glad dooce.com isn’t blocked in China.

    How could I go on knowing I missed out on this?

  • http://dooce.migrantroo.com minxlj

    I can’t wait for the 2007 calendar – gimme gimme!!!!!!!! His beautiful (and often pasta-covered) snout has entertained me all through 2006 :-)

    I’m slowly training my cats to do similar things. I’ve discovered that Lilo will tolerate most things (wearing a Metallica baseball cap, being wrapped up like a sausage, small things resting on his head) when there’s tuna to be found; however Stitch is not so daft, and glares at me with THAT look that says he’s sooooo disappointed in me. Just wait til he sees the Halloween costume I’m getting him!!!!!

  • Angellivia

    When everything else in my life is fallng to pieces I can count on Chuck to make me smile.

    Thank you.

  • http://ameri-canwife.blogspot.com/ American Wife

    That Chuck is so darn lovely, he inspires me to put one of my cats down so we can free up some pet space in our home for canine usage.

    My 2 year old likes the pasta shape ditalli (ususally used in soups) because she can poke her tiny finger into the pasta’s center and wear it as a ring briefly before eating straight from the finger tip. Very tidy method of toddler pasta consumption and it makes her giggle.

    He is such a GOOD DOG! It’s clear that you’ve been playing this game with him for years.
