An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

Chuck, age 4 months, first instance of clothed humiliation

  • Perfect future Congressman attire.

    Happy Chuck Friday!!!


  • Liv

    Aww he looks so cute! From the thumbnail it looked like it might be another picture of Leta! You have to build up to it slowly, but eventually it is possible to get your dog in full cycling gear, including shirt, shorts, shades and helmet. I have the photographic evidence!

  • i live in the LA area– where did you find that apartment??? the floors, people, the floors. and the trim. that apartment does not exist in this realm.

    oh yeah, and the dog– unbearably cute. as usual.

  • Mir

    Oh Heather… be ashamed… Chuck is OBVIOUSLY more of a jewel-tone animal… he’s all washed out in that shirt. Tsk tsk. 😉

  • go here, it’s awesome!

  • Something about that shirt makes Chuck look like Bobby Brady.

  • And so I asked, “Do I NEED this much Chuck adorableness in the morning?” And the answer was yes, undoubtedly yes.

  • TexChic

    Since you didn’t have a baby at the time, where did you get that shirt? Did you buy it just for him?

  • OMG…That is AWESOME!

  • nice floors

  • Eh. Just another stuffed shirt.


  • CHUCK! I love ya!

    Off-topic, but I came across this video and think it’s safe to assume this isn’t being aired in the US:

    Wow. Just… wow.

  • Runway announcer: “…and here is Chuck looking oh so fab in this striped shirt. Worn indoors with kids or outside while haggin with the dawgs, Chuck knows how to impress the ladies…”

  • Lis

    That’s nothing…my dogs get dressed up as bumble bees and ballet dancers for Halloween. Not to mention the Christmas cards…where they are made to wear hats, antlers and Christmas lights.

    Complete humiliation.

    But that’s what they have to do to have a warm, loving house (and bed!) to call their own. 🙂

  • SEK

    That look kinda says, “you’re not really taking a picture, are you?”

  • put some underwear and pants on him and send him to school. I’m sure that he can pass as a 5 year old.

  • It’s not baby fat, it’s the horizontal stripes making SirChuck appear to have a larger girth!

  • Pets in clothing do not usually amuse me, but when I giggled out loud when I saw this photo. I think it’s the expression on Chuck’s face that makes it priceless.

  • We had 6 mini daschounds when I was little and my Mom made little botties for every one of them.
    I am sure they hated her.

  • Last comment of the day. I used to bartend at a pub called the Thirsty Dog. We let people bring their dogs in and eat with them, it was an awesome place. Anypoodle, people dress their dogs up a lot more than you think, AND TAKE THEM INTO PUBLIC LIKE THAT. Nothing like waiting on a doberman wearing sunglasses and a t-shirt.

  • Dazed & Confuzed

    Is it just me or is Chuck NOT WEARING ANY PANTS?

  • Southern Fried Girl

    Oh, the things we do to our pets for our own amusement.

  • beachgal

    CHUCK!!! Yay for Friday!

    Love the whole ear up/down thing. He’s so cute.

  • He looks kind of like Ernie from Sesame Street. Is Jon dressed up like Bert off camera? If so, is Jon naked from the waist down too?

    What kind of sick shit are you into?

  • sab

    dude! that’s awesome.

  • Hey Kim…I’m not sure if you know…but your blog won’t come up on dairyland…=o(

  • Okay, so Chuck, like, TOTALLY needs a sweater, like, tied around his neck to, like, complete his, like, totally preppy ensemble, k?

    Where’s Mouse?

  • i can’t stop cooing over his ears…sooo cute. i was so smitten with them, i didn’t even notice his shirt was…pink. 🙂

  • I love how his shirt matches his hair colour

  • Ok, ummm, it looks to me like Chuck had the lipstick out for someone. Maybe it was “Bert”.

    Fish, My gut hurts from belly laughing.

  • If Morgan Fairchild was in the frame, this would totally be an Old Navy commercial.

  • He does look quite happy. Not as happy as he is when he’s with Emily, but pretty close.

    I bet Emily would have put him in something with a little less pink.

    hee hee. sorry. I’m feeling evil this morning.

  • Tracey

    While I don’t think the T-shirt’s color is best for Chuck, he looks positively adorable in that shot! I love Chuck!

  • Girl.A, you sick bee-yatch, now you’ve got me saving Chuck’s picture and enlarging it to look for the aforementioned “lipstick.” Damn you! I think I see it, too.

  • OMG, Fish! you are SO funny!

  • popsicle

    YES ! I’m 106th. I love it.

  • Dooce, I love the suck, don’t blow post. We must be on the same wavelength. doodoo doodoo doodoo doodoo

    Don’t quiff when you are quaffing the quim or you might cause it to queef.

    But if you really can die from having gases like oxygen trapped in your box, how come most people just queef and they’re fine????

  • Bucky, I have a 20 inch Dell UltraSharp flat panel monitor at work. It has pros and cons. Like you don’t always want to see THAT much detail.

  • Nice shirt Chuck. Did you pick that out all by yourself?

  • If I know anyone who wants high-resolution renderings of Chuck’s chili-dog, its Girl.A.

  • ack! i can spot IKEA furniture from a mile away!

    “Eating the pink taco,”


  • Dooce: that picture of Leta with the Organism Book? Yeah, you’re pretty much going to hell.

  • red

    i wondered what kind of colorful analogy you would use for um “eating the pink taco.” hilarious.

  • Pink Taco


  • Fish, I don’t want to see renderings of the chilidog.

    Fair warning: leave off describing what I want to see unless you’d like me to describe what I think you want to see, Mister Gay Bestial Sesame Street Fantasy That Includes Mister Armstrong.

  • becaru

    Chuck, you have a beautiful smile.

  • P.S. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • Andrea in Canada

    I love it, I think he’s smiling! He is totally saying, “ok mom…I wore the shirt, now can I have that pop tart…yum yum…you said I could!”

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.
