    Chuck rocks, no matter what color his eyes are.

    What a little peanut head cutie!

    Not to bring up the subject of Boohbah again…but I have a story. I get really bad migraines, and my neurologist put me on a medicine called Topamax on monday to try to prevent them. I’ve been on Topamax before and did great. Well, people on the “migraine street” call it Stupamax because, for a few weeks, until your body gets used to the medicine, you actually get kind of stupid. I started it Monday, and the stupidness hit Thursday morning. It started with me not being able to figure how to tie my shoes…took 5 minutes to get it right. THen I couldn’t process how to get my daughter’s coat on her while the TV was on – had to turn the TV off first so I could concentrate! Anyway…freaky stuff if you didn’t know it would stop in a few weeks.

    So…Thursday, my husband came home, and *I* had *MY* head resting on *my* *daughter’s* leg, and we had been watching TIVO’d episodes of Boohbah and Elmo for 3 hours!!!!!!! I was seriously enjoying myself. The colors were just so pretty, the songs so nice, the peace/love/harmony atmosphere, all the action. My husband, on the other hand, was laughing his ass off and wanted to take a picture.

    Aww Chuckles! I knew it would be him, I’d recognize a dog ear anywhere!

    Funny…I’m the on with the green eyes in my family…the rest have brown. Of course, this is what happens when your hubby is hispanic. His genes win.

    This is so funny, my husband just told our dog that today. I got on to him for pointing it out because now Brownie will know she’s adopted!

  • Allan

    On the off chance that you ever decided you don’t want Chuck anymore, I will be glad to take him off your hands.

    He is just too cute.

  • romy

    I don’t know, but the flash reflection makes Chuck’s eyes look green to me 🙂

    BTW… I’m the only blue-eyed in my family, everyone else has brown… ditto those MACHO hispanic genes 🙂

    I think he looks a bit freaky-deaky there.
    But maybe it’s just me.

    Chuckles! Sweetie! Who’s a good dog? Who? Who?

    I know that Chuck’s lineage may be mixed (the BEST kind!) but everytime I see the picture below, I think of him.

  • Becca

    Senor Chuckles needs a rack o’ reindeer antlers, I think. He’d look like “Max” from the Grinch. hehe.

    no, I think he’s really saying “I’ve gotten into a lot more trash cans than you think I have”
