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

Zen master vs. toddler on meth

  • My dog came running over to see what all the commotion was about. She can hear squeaky toys a mile away. That video was hilarious!

  • There’s a book that came out in February that’s narrated by a dog (Dog On It by Spencer Quinn) and it’s on Stephen King’s 7 Great Books to read this Summer list. I wonder how a book narrated by Chuck &/or Coco would read?

  • So that’s what it’s like to watch a dog contemplate suicide.

    I have a Max and a Coco. Only my Coco is Chuck and my Max is Coco.

  • Vanessa

    We brought home a “Coco” (Henry) for our “Chuck” (Max) about a year and a half ago. We had raised Max to be a lazy, TV-watching dog who slept in on weekends (and weekdays, too). Henry… not so much. He’s basically Satan. His crazy hair even forms little devil horns. I’ve been trying to get on video Henry’s last resort “play with me” tactic – grabbing Max’s tail in his mouth and pulling as hard as he can.

  • Alissa

    I think Chuck would look great in a Smart Car.

  • Jennie

    I hate to inform you at this late date, but I’ve come to the unavoidable conclusion that Chuck is a cat. A very large cat with a dog-like appearance. There’s no other explanation for his sangfroid.

  • Liz


  • Chuck is my personal hero. If I could achieve that level of tolerance I would have five more children.

  • I already loved Chuck, but damn! That was funny. 🙂

  • i love the grumble chuck gives right at the end. but coco perking up when jon says toyota. hehehehe…

  • Oh my gosh, that is too adorable. You can just see him getting nervous about the thing in his face. I vote Hybrid, Chuck!

  • Annie

    Oh that is amazing.

    I love the blatant difference between the two.

  • the way chuck can barely be bothered look at jon from the corner of his eye? and the way he seems annoyed to be addressed at such length by the human? that’s exactly how my dog treats me. like, unless your next word is “walk” or “treat,” i don’t want to hear it. brutus actually looks kind of like chuck’s burly, large-headed cousin.

  • awesome.

  • Savanah


    Epic cold shoulder FOR EVAR.


    Expect in 43 days, 5 hours, and 58 minutes a missing “Chuck”.

  • Okay, time for honesty: that is about 1000 times more giggle-inducing than I expected when I clicked play.

  • Hehehe.

    I love them both!

  • lindsay

    WHY can’t I view the video? All I see is black! There’s no play button!

  • bethie

    So I sat here watching this, and just as I started it I took my computer volume off mute. I watched the whole thing to the tune of Funky Town from the McDonalds Kidz Bop cd. It was only after the video ended and the music continued that I realized I had iTunes up and the song was from that, not your video.
    I thought Funky Town was a weird choice for a Chuck video. More appropriate for Coco.

  • lindsay

    chuck is so badass. i wish my dog was that chill. He’s totally an old soul.

  • Paige

    My chihuahua Willow, has a crush on Chuck.

  • Kristin

    My beagle started growling as soon as Jon started talking. When Coco started playing with the squeaky toy, my dog tried to find her. Do all dogs respond to human-dog conversation and/or recorded squeaky toys? Or just dumb beagles?

  • Sandra

    Give me today my daily Chuck. ♥

  • My Maggie is in between Chuck and Coco. Mostly a Chuck really, but when she wants to play she’ll let you know by throwing a toy at your head while hers spins 360 degrees. She’…special.

  • jen

    Chuck – cool and sophisticated. Coco – look at me. My son and I thought this hilarious.

    Lindsay – I had the same problem but refreshed and got the play button.

  • That…that was amazing.

  • antoniomo

    Seems like Chuck is all “I love you Jon, but geez, what’s with the meaningless questions?”

  • Aaaaaaand my 2 dogs have lost it. It was the squeaking that did them in. They are now barking like there is a mailman in the room with steaks strapped to his buttocks.

    It doesn’t help that one of my dogs is a miniature Australian shepherd as well. Oh how I wish I would have found this blog before we got her. So many things about my life would be different right now.

  • Now that just made my day. So funny!

  • You guys are so funny. 🙂

  • Megan

    OMG – that was absolutly hilarious!

  • Heather, this really made me laugh considering I have two dogs and they remind me so much of Chuck and Coco. One squeaks her toy ALL DAY LONG while the other just looks at me like, “Really? We needed one more?”

  • Insightful, Chuck. I think you meant that we should all consider our options carefully before making a final decision. Well done.

  • That is hilarious! Chuck looks like he’s about to doze off at any moment.

  • that is the best thing i have seen today.

    it’s also a pretty close parallel to josh and marley in my own house.

    only josh would crawl into your lap until you pet him and marley would just bring you toy after toy after toy until you decided to play.

  • J. Bo

    I love Chuck beyond all reason.

    And he’s made all the Chucklier by Coco’s squirrel squeaking in the background.

  • shy

    almost reminds me of the billy thorton interview with CBC radio:

    except chuck is clearly not trying to be as rude as billy bob. 🙂

    gotta love the chuck!

  • That was adorable. I think that you should do these interviews weekly. Seriously.

  • suz

    LOVE IT. ps why’d ya never mention the hotness of your man’s VOICE??? i vote more dog/husband videos. also, i vote more dooce in general. LOVE.

  • Anon

    OMG. I couldn’t comment in the Sanford post because comments are closed. Here I am, commenting on this section anyway. Where Jon is standing on the patio with all Leta’s stuff, in the corner, coco is rolling around on the lawn in the background and I feel like I am there looking at that dog on his back. Just struck me funny….I can feel the sunshine, hear the dog. Love it!

  • Michelle

    I’m thinking Jon needs to hang out more with his guy friends? He really wants to talk cars, and Chuck is clearly not buying what Jon is hawking!

  • Jon sounds so much like Stewie from family guy when hes asking those questions and not getting a response.

  • Chuck knows that if you look at the camera straight on, it will steal your soul.

    Buy an Audi, Chuck. You won’t be sorry.

  • But they are both so cute! (although my heart still belongs to Chuck …)

  • Kate

    Chuck seems to be regretting that you only TALKED ABOUT THE TOUCHING and not THE INTERVIEWING.

  • For some strange reason that is really funny and cute. Ha!

  • Ginny

    My dog’s ears went straight up when Coco’s collar started to rattle.

    This video really does capture the essence.

  • Melissa

    We also have a mini-Aussie, Kona, who’s expressions and general demeanor are just like Coco’s. I can’t tell you how many phone conversations, lullabies to baby, conversations with the huz- basically any and every daily activity- that take place with exactly the same soundtrack in the background. Same squeak EXACTLY. I was actually surprised when Kona didn’t come running to “rescue the squeaky toy from my grasp” while I was watching the video. It’s nice to know she’s got sistas from otha mothas out there bringing joy and annoyance to loving people everywhere.

  • Chuck’s all- dude, asking me about my “next” car? In this economy…no comment.

    I wish I could see his tail in this. My schnauzer can pretend to ignore me w/his face all day long but his indicator (tail nub) will give him away every time.

    BTW- what kind of camera and LENS was this shot with? Nice.

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.
