Best way to roast the broomstick. Must try. Five Stars.

A Very Merry Christmas

Chuck totally wanted me to dress him up in a jaunty bow and ribbon. I didn’t even have to bribe him with cheese and bacon-flavored biscuits to get him to sit still for these portraits, not at all.

Jon and I will be spending the next several days in various corners of the Salt Lake City area, giving homemade gifts to The Family Units, listening to 4-yr old boys whine so loudly that they sound like an adult immitating a 4-yr old boy whining, picking out the walnuts in the holiday fudge and slipping them to Chuck under the table (Jon is so going to kill me for this), singing and screaming and trying not to fall asleep during the reading of the nativity story as written in several parts of the New Testament.

Have a wonderful holiday, forgive your family, and drink whiskey. See you next year.

  • Happy Christmas and Merry New Year!

  • How do you get that charming glowing effect with the pics? I’d love to fuzz up some photos for my site.

  • It’s champagne all the way for me! Happy New Year!

  • Shotwise, I don’t know exactly how Dooce does her images, but try duplicating the image layer, giving it a guassian blur, then setting that layer to soft light or screen. You should get about the same kind of look. BTW, happy holidays to Dooce and her readers. 🙂

  • The holidays and lack of posting have left me no other choice but to leave two comments on the same post; bringing great personal risk and humilation to myself of possibly being labeled “one of those people”. Wishing You A Happy New Year! Thanks for sharing your bad self throughout the year.

  • merry fucking christmas, chuck-o-dooce-o-mat.

  • Happy Holidays!

    Love your dog. Very cartoony. Reminds me of the time I tried to dress up my pet wookie as a pilgrim on Thanksgiving just before he got blitzed on Glenlivet and Ivanhoe’d my ass with the turkey baster. Not good times. Bad times.

    Hope Chuck treats you nicer. Keep feeding him walnuts. Glad to hear you are doing well!

  • Happy New Year, Dooce. Hope you have a great one! Can I have your dog? He’s too cute.

  • Hope

    Just found your site, can I get a two year subscription? And does the adorable pup come with that? Too cool !

  • Woofy Christmas and a Chucky New Year, Dooce! Looking forward to your first post for 2003. 🙂

  • dude, nice pigs.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
