the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Because the Jennifer Beals Costume Would Have Been Too Cute and the World Isn’t Ready for that Much Cuteness, Plus this Costume

    What a cute little devil of a dog. He’s hot!

    i swear, it must be the most fun to be your dog! all the other dogs must be jealous.

    I don’t think I’m seeing this right…is that a handle on his head?

  • Lapdog

    My dog would’ve had that costume off and shredded into tiny pieces in seconds. What kind of sedatives are you feeding him?

  • Chuck Cheeze

    Yes, a handle it must be. He actually looks like an iron to me. The Super-Duper ChuckaSteamer! Grab the handle on his head and iron the red cape!

    I usually don’t comment on people’s site, but your Chuckie is so damn sweet. Makes me daydream about having a such a nifty dog too.

    this is why dogs bite people.

    Sure as heck beats my costume (I went as one of the Hives), and sure to get the ladies!

    That bottom picture is just about the funniest thing I’ve seen all week…

  • Dean

    That does it. Oliver is going as Chuckles next year.

  • Katie

    2002/11/01 at 9:02 am

    He looks so bitter!

  • Sarah B.

    2002/11/01 at 9:20 am

    Bitter gets the ladies.

    I agree with DCLAY. It’s the funniest picture I’ve seen all year. They should make a movie about that dog. With Adam Sandler. Or without. But it should be a comedy and not film noir.

    Senator Chuckles of the underworld.

    Damn, I’m trading in the cats for a dog half as cool as Chuck.

    Why does that poor pooch have a miniature life preserver on his head?

    I think it’s time to have babies. Human ones.

    Katie: Not bitter — *EVIL*.

    Awesome photos. Our dog did not dress up this year, but continues to parade around as the moat-digging,, squirrel-chasing, phycho-dog. Hershey could learn a lot from Chuckles about sitting still (even if it’s only for a few seconds).

    MMMM, you made me think of Devil Dogs.

  • Sarah L.

    2002/11/01 at 12:41 pm

    Dammit, you’re going to make me pee in my pants at work. This is an investment bank, for heaven’s sake, they don’t allow us to laugh here, I’ll be found out.

    Wow, I’ve seen that same expression in my dogs pictures this Halloween. It is like, “No, she di’nt…” It makes me wanna stop dressing my dog in costumes, um, not really. Message to The Husband: It doesn’t stop when you have human babies.

    d couldn’t disuade me from dressing tigger in the clown hat. i don’t think he’s recovered yet. next year? dressing the pups as sheep and going as little bo peep!

  • Ex-liontamer

    I think you accidentally dressed him as Jennifer Beals’s agent.

  • Kristian

    2002/11/01 at 6:27 pm

    We tried to dress my cat up as a fairy tale princess.

    In other news, I’m glad my tetanus shots are up to date.

    Hot dog. Haha, get it?

  • darsella

    what kind of dog is the little devil? he’s adorable.

  • Lapdog

    2002/11/02 at 7:54 am

    And here wehave the “anti-Chuck”……

  • Paul Gutman

    A devil dog! I always liked those, growing up…

    though at first, I thought Senator Chucklesworth was a fireman. We blame the candy goggles for that one.

  • kane

    Nice shots of the devil dog. Thought you would get a kick out of this one

  • Keith

    2002/11/02 at 6:27 pm

    He’s eeeeee-vil. Like the froo-its of the Dev-il.

    Lock your doors. I’m going to steal him. 🙂

  • Peter

    2002/11/03 at 11:52 am

    dude, dogs should not be dressed up. leave ‘im alone!

  • nita

    2002/11/03 at 2:03 pm

    It’s a good thing I already know he pees on his friends, else he’d totally be kidnapped.

  • The Inmate

    2002/11/03 at 6:01 pm

    I don’t believe the term “housebroken” includes the animal’s spirit. I can only assume he is well fed, or else the two of you would have been mauled by now.

    Ouch. When he’s gone, he will come back and get you for this. In fact, so will I.

    i never understood why owners dress up their pets…
