    This is the precise difference between my daughter (almost 4) and my son (7 months), although she is Coco; he is Chuck. Never has this been so succinctly and eloquently captured.

  • Staci

    i love chuck! he is my favorite ‘famous’ dog and i really think he needs his own show…

    My damn dogs came running in a fit of panic, barking “Where is the squeaky toy!? Give us the damn squeaky toy, woman!”

  • Andy

    Chuck wishes you would not put carpet over that beautiful hardwood floor in the nursery. Chuck thinks you are making a BIG mistake doing that. But Chuck does not mind the carpet in the basement.

  • SarahW

    P.S. Just cracked open a new box of Crunch ‘n Munch.

    I was going to find something to watch on Hulu but this was so much better!

    Ha! My dog took off trying to find the toy as well. She’s sitting on the couch looking very depressed at the moment. Life is tough.

  • lynn

    I think if Chuck had a pair of ruby red shoes on right about now he would be clicking them together and wispering…GET ME OUTTA HERE!

  • Laura

    Let me translate:
    Chuck: “Are you f*&^ing insane? It’s a Porsche or nothing, asshole.”

    Oh jeez, Chuck just makes me bust a gut. I have never “met” such a boring, HILARIOUS dog.

  • http://www.decoybetty.com Deidre

    Wow – that squeaking would get tiresome. My parents are going to get a (another) Australia puppy this summer. Truly adorable. and Gave me ONE MORE REASON TO PROCRASTINATE, so thanks for that!

    I would give anything for my dog to act that way. Mine would be joining Coco in the back. No wait, if it were MY husband talking, Bear would be trying to stuff himself down my husband’s shirt.

    That pretty much sums up my Aussie.

  • http://vampiregrapes.blogspot.com Stephanie

    That was surprisingly hilarious. I watched it more than once. And then I sent it to my mom!

    Hi Dooce,

    Great video. That is sooo our 2 dogs. Question from my husband: What is Jon shooting with? Is it the 5D MKII? I think he has a bit o’ camera envy.

  • Chelsea

    OMG – they are BOTH like the long lost twins of my two dogs. I love it.

  • http://OddGoodTrue.blogspot.com Cupcake Murphy

    I can totally picture Chuck leading a Learning Annex Workshop called Controlling Your Temper With Your Eyebrows.

  • MamaLana

    I really love Chuck. What a good dog.

  • Laura

    As much as you can love a dog via the internet, this is how much I love Chuck!! And I love your blog… I read every day and it always makes me laugh. Thanks for that!

  • http://www.calledmadeleine.blogspot.com Megan

    I think this makes it clear that Chuck doesn’t believe in America’s auto industry – or in America, generally. He’s such a liberal euro-hippy commie elitist. But so hot.

  • http://yetanotherheather.blogspot.com/ Heather

    This is so funny and CUTE! What the heck was Chuck looking at that kept him so intently focused? I just love that dog to pieces.

  • sue

    Okay you two, here’s the deal. It’s not that Coco is so naughty, it’s just that Chuck is so P*E*R*F*E*C*T.

  • robin

    Oh my god… that was so great.

    I have an aloof chocolate lab rescue, matilda, that would just love chuck. wouldn’t be as annoying as coco but would sqawweeeeek (sp?) anything available.

    first time caller, long time reader. good luck with the new baby!

  • Sam

    I had the worst night, and this just totally made me laugh in spite of it. Thanks for the smile.

  • http://www.oopsababy.blogspot.com Lacey Jane from Oopsababy

    I was about to off myself until I watched that. Thanks Jon and Heather for that enlightening experience…for reminding me that even when life sucks at least there are some awesome dogs in this world. Woo!

  • AGreenEyeDevil

    The sheer disdain in Chuck’s demeanor is priceless and the total abandon in Coco’s attitude cracks me up…I can only imagine what it’s really like to live under the same roof as these two delightful creatures!

  • http://www.babytanous.blogspot.com Rachael

    I would love to hear the sound of a squeaky toy for longer than 2 seconds, it would mean my wall and furniture is not being chewed on. I’ve stopped buying expensive dog toys and just getting 99 cent stuffed animals since they last such a short time. My dog can snap a tennis ball in one bite, chew through hard rubber tires and the frozen kong with peanut butter lasted her maybe 10 minutes. She had it all out and was begging for more. Imagine a very hairy member of KISS laying on your floor.

  • http://mypersonalminiseries.blogspot.com/ Queen of Chaos

    Oh. My. GOSH that is funny!!

    Gotta love our furry kids… right???

    Thanks for stopping by my place for a visit!

  • Anonymous

    That is so William Wegman-ish! Very funny!

  • Lisa

    That’s hysterical. Like, slap your momma silly funny. I love it!

  • Zina

    I hope you’ll forgive that this comment both is not about Chuck and also offers unsolicited advice, but I just watched the Momversation and I want to offer the one piece of advice that helped me a lot with my second child, once I figured it out: Remember and believe that having a sibling is going to be the best thing ever for Leta, in spite of or even because of the challenges it will bring into her life. Then convey that belief in how you interact with her and the confidence you show in her. When my first would interrupt while I was, for example, trying to nurse my second baby (once he even grabbed her head and pulled her away – ouch!,) because I felt guilty for his having to share me, I’d react passively and tentatively at first, and then, as his behaviors escalated, I would snap. Once I’d thought it through and realized that he was going to survive sharing my attention just fine, I was much more firm and calm with him. Don’t try to keep Leta’s life unchanged — just believe it’s a wonderful change for her. (Bonus: a five-year-old will be able to help a lot — like bring you the ringing phone while you’re nursing, etc. Actually a kid as precocious as Leta could probably change diapers. Not that I’m recommending that, but I’ll bet she could.)

    Good luck!

  • SupaCoo

    Dooce, I looked at your daily picture “The Sanfords” today and OMG. I love how Chuck is standing next to Jon going “Dude, what’s up, what’s going on, what’s wrong??” And Coco? In the background being a spaz. (Or, I guess you’d call that being normal?)

  • wheezer345

    I LOVE IT! More movies with Cuck and Coco!

  • http://www.kariapted.com Kari

    That is HYSTERICAL! Of course, having just wrapped up a writing project at nearly 4:00 a.m., I’m exhausted enough that everything is funny. But the Sanfords, and this clip just cracked me up. Chuck is so adorable. I want a dog like Chuck!

  • http://www.gonchaya.com Andrew

    nice dog….I took it as a logo on my site

  • Rissa

    Hahaha, I can’t stop laughing. I’m sure the fact that I’m going on 20 hours without sleep has something to do with it, but maybe not. Amazing dynamic there captured perfectly. Oh how I love them both.

  • http://www.mandinka.etsy.com Mandinka

    God, I love you Chuck!
    I think I saw a decidedly strong reaction to the Ford Focus.

  • http://indapuddingclub.blogspot.com/ Lauren

    So so pretty that chuck is.

    This video made my day. Love ya chuck!

    The Senator is clearly saying “Please, no comments. Talk to my people.”

    Coco, on the other hand, reminds me of a pubescent groupie at a concert for boy-band-of-the-moment. What a psycho.

    My pooch is very Chuck-like but lacks Chuck’s dignity. He did open an eye for Coco’s squeaking, but didn’t keep it open long enough to blink.

    THANK YOU for opening comments!

  • Kristi

    This is awesome! I LOVE Chuck!
    Jon cracks me up – love that line of questioning… so, how about hybrid technology?
    Thanks for posting this, and opening comments. :)

  • Sweet Herald


    And I love how you can see Coco in the background of your Sanford picture, prolly rubbing in dog shit :D

  • http://blog.modernemotive.com modernemotive

    Ha, thanks for the morning giggle!

    My dogs blatantly ignore me like that all the time. Or do the 5 minute stretch before coming to me.

  • doobrah

    That is hilarious. They really are polar opposites.

  • http://purpledogmommy.blogspot.com/ Melina

    Awesome. Your dog(s) crack me up.

    It’s a pity, my dog is a hoot, but doesn’t have much “Chuck” in him. Hrm.

    Happy holiday weekend to you and yours. Stay safe!

  • http://thaxtonfam.blogspot.com Hokie Deb

    –>It almost seemed like you were giving Chuck a polygraph test and he was trying not to crack except for that #(&^*%# squeaking in the background. ha!

  • http://www.livejournal.com/~ravengrace Sarah

    *sigh* My German Shephard, Mattox = 100 lb Coco…he would have done the same thing…

    Love it!

  • http://www.iambossy.com/ BOSSY

    Chuck looks like a Pontiac man to Bossy.

  • http://outdoordogs.blogspot.com Amo

    Holy hell, do you REALLY read all these comments? Dang.

    My 10 year old porch hound actually got up to bark at that video. Apparently, she is more of a Chuck fan than I knew. (Or Cocoa’s squeeky was making her crazy as well…)

  • http://www.whatthebeans.wordpress.com Carlyjay

    That video made my life.

    Kudos to Jon for asking the tough questions. “What about a hybrid? Are you looking into hybrid technology at all?”
