    Too cute!!!

    So stories about dressing up cats reminds me of when my friends gf threw him a surprise birthday party. I had the key to let everyone in the apartment. We walked through the door and the first thing we saw was their cat in baby pjamas standing frozen with a look on her face that said. Oh SHIT they caught me in my pjamas!!!! Turns out the pjamas were because she was traumatized by moving from one city to another and would lick the fur right off of her. Poor girl.

    Oh and McDonalds used to give muppets out with kids meal (or something) and we had Fozzy bear with a hat and a scarf. Well it was the perfect size for our dog.. he looked adorable in it 😀

    I should ask my sister to give me some baby clothes to dress my cat up.

    I think she’d look cute in a pink onesie.

    Are you dressing Leta up as an egg? Then you could carry around a sign that says “The chicken came first in our house” because, you know, you had the dog first… heh nevermind me I’m tired and a dork 🙂

    Isn’t it amazing what a dog will do for pizza and fallen Pop-Tarts?

    How cute is that! I hope you gave him a Pop-tart for posing so well.

    I’m so glad I woke up ridiculously early for a Sunday and wandered back in here… Poor Chuck. I must confess, I dig his turkey style.

    That’s adorable. My seventy-pound Golden Retriever will tolerate anything, but I just don’t have the heart to dress him up.

    He’s gotta be thinking, “If these photos ever get out, it will TOTALLY ruin my political career.”

    Can’t wait to see Leta!

    Happy Halloween everyone!

    I have reported you to Utah Child Welfare and to the local office of the Humane Society. . .

    Or was that just a dream? Flapping babies, dogs in chicken suits. . .

    Sounds like it could have all been a dream. A twisted, funny dream.

    Mouse, I think I must be secretly ‘greyhound’. I couldn’t believe how easy it was for me to understand your language….

    Dooce, does Chuck ever type on your laptop when you’re not looking? My Lucy might explain the drool on the keyboard here….

    Chucken. It’s what’s for dinner! Hee hee!

    That look of silent indignation is priceless.

    And why do I get the feeling that it’s going to be easier to dress up The Former Congressman this year than it is Leta?

  • Meredith

    I love it! Chuck is absolutely adorable, and having dogs that can tolerate that kind of “cruelty” and “abuse” are so much fun.

    Buwahahahah! Chuck is the BEST. Question: Does Chuck move when the costume is on? Because when I put a costume on my dog, he WON’T MOVE. He will stand there in his adorable little Elvis suit and not move a muscle.

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.
