Sandwich stealer

[Cliff Claven voice] Did anyone uh, notice me there? Take this, uh, sandwich here?




Well, Okey Dokes, then.


Carina V., I love how Molly the Basset’s lips wrap around her prey like that. The adventure!



  1. I love this doggie! Mine would steal food too!

  2. Such a somber sammie snatcher.

  3. Such passive “prey,” too…

  4. What a ham….sandwich.

  5. Christina says:

    Cute drooopy eyes… Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

  6. CLASSIC! cute!!!!

  7. One of those eyes is a beautiful ba-luuuue! [/basset baying]

  8. His adorable big eyes make me want to pee in my pants from cuteness.
    So freakin cute *pets head*
    He could eat my sandwiches ANY DAY, what a sweet dumpling

  9. OMG!!! I LURVE bassets! Our basset was Daphne Dumpling. She would’ve grabbed this dude’s sammich in a heartbeat.

  10. are those sad eyes baby blue?? i didn’t know Bassett’s could have blue eyes, how puuurrty!!

  11. AuntieMame says:

    No one saw her snatch the sammich? Bummer. She looks so disappointed. 🙂

  12. I think “Stealing People Food” should be a rule of cuteness.

  13. When I was younger, my cat Maxx once stole half of a chicken salad sandwich from my mom’s bedside tray while she was recovering from a surgery, despite her pleas that he leave it alone. I still remember to this day the sight of Maxx high-stepping triumphantly down the hallway with a huge triangle of sandwich in his mouth.

  14. I once saw a seagull running off with someone’s sandwich. It couldn’t quite achieve the balance needed to fly off with it. This might be Cute or Sad: Cute, because I love seagulls, sad, because no one wants to lose their lunch!

  15. “no one wants to lose their lunch” — LOL. Tru dat.

  16. hee hee hee… he’s expression is absolutely wonderful! xx

  17. I used to have a Basset Hound named Molly. She was so chubby we called her Molly McButter. I miss snorgling her big jowls and ears. Her level of excitement was pretty low. Once she almost barked, but then she lost interest and fell asleep.

  18. RavishingRoberta says:

    Aubrey…..That Seagull Wasn’t At The Naval Base In San Diego Was It…..Yes L O L That Happened To Me. It Was A Good Pastrami On Rye Too.

  19. RavishingRoberta says:

    Oh Yeah; I Love The “No You Can’t Have It” Attitude Going On There

  20. Hey… ain’t that MY sandwich?! It’s not so cute when it’s your lunch missing…
    And yet, it is kinda cute!

  21. Ravishing R:

    It happened a little north – at Leo Cabrillo Beach.

    Sorry about the pastrami – I do feel your pain.

  22. I had a cat who came up three flights of stairs, over a fence, and up into a window, carrying a paperbag with a whole take-out Chinese dinner for one– Mongolian Beef, rice, fortune cookie and napkin.
    I was impressed.

    OMG!!!!! This HAS to be the CUTEST thing I’ve seen!!! I’ve been browsing cuteoverload for quite some time and nothing has made me want to comment until this!!! =D
    *hugs cute dog*

  24. Slow motion doggie! I love how she stood still long enough for someone to find a camera and take *three* pictures her. Sheesh! My dog would’ve inhaled that thing in 2.3 nanoseconds and then gone back for the chips and the pickle…

  25. Dustbunny says:

    Mel: ROTFL at the description of your basset. I remember seeing a story on tv about how to measure doggie intelligence, which had to do with how quickly they react to having a towel dropped over their heads. The poodle jumped about 3 feet in the air almost before the towel hit his head. The basset just sat there. No reaction whatsoever. I think they eventually turned off the camera and left. It was hilarious : )

  26. Bassets are, far and away, the greatest combination of cuteness and world-weariness imaginable. More basset pix please! Given world events the most we can aspire to is the condition of the basset.

  27. he looks so guilty! awww

  28. KiMbObImBo says:

    Basset cuteness!!! Yea!! I’ve had four bassets in my life and they do love to steal food! One stole birthday cake and pizza!

  29. So thats where my sandwhich went…

    PS: Happy B- Day to…

  30. Dustbunny: I remember that. I think the Papillon ended up being the most intelligent or something.

  31. gotta lover those eyes in the first pic. awesome pics. gorgeous dog too.

  32. Piggalette says:

    My basset, Annie, loves to steal (if begging and sad eyes don’t get the treat handed to her). TWICE she has eaten an entire bag of Oreo cookies with no ill effects. Rotten dog, but we love her to bits!

  33. “I think “Stealing People Food” should be a rule of cuteness.”

    Oh yes – like Desdemona the Cookie Thief!

    Next time the person should eat some MRE’s. That would be considered cruelty to animals though.Woods Walker

  35. Michelle says:

    I love this! My dogs would have inhaled that sammich in a zillionth of a second, leaving no trace, no evidence of any crime. It’s almost touching how that basset seems to be thoughtfully considering her options for a getaway. Meg, as always, your captions crank up the cuteness exponentially.

  36. I think the pics look more like the dog is saying “Ok, I’ve got it. *Now* what do I do with the thing?”

  37. CrazyIvan says:

    ‘Okey Dokes’ just makes it for me. Happy basset gets to go off and have the sammich. 🙂

  38. I have one word for this dog: phlegmatic.

  39. Aww I love doggies!! When my dog gets a treat she never eats it right away, just holds it in her mouth and runs off to a private corner teehee puppies are adorable ^_^

  40. Awwwwwwwwwwww Molly reminds me of treasured family pooch Daisy, who was a basset & beagle mix. She had the body of a basset but color & ears of a beagle. She was the sweetest thing, but she also wouldn’t have stopped long enough to be photographed like this!

  41. “Stop, thief!! Quick, somebody send a letter to the police before she gets away!

  42. That dog really likes his sammiches.

    I love bassets.

  43. He’s thinking, “Should I give it back? Mmmmmmm”

  44. Gimme one! Thank you hush puppy!

  45. Id love to have a bassett hound, they seem like such nice dogs. *the one I know* AND THE CUTEDROOPYFACE! XD

  46. Hound dog! Bawooo-woo-woooo!!!

  47. Finally!!!!!! I try to get here and my computer is so slow!!!! Theres something wrong!

  48. Flash's Mom says:

    I had a basset named Flash–I did the “drop a blanket over him” test mentioned above. He curled up under the blanket and fell asleep. If that’s not genius, I don’t know what is.

  49. Wow. Up until this point I was convinced *my* basset was the prettiest in the world. This one gives Dollybug a run for her money.

    Also – the blue eyes, I’ve never seen that before either. I want my next basset to have blue eyes!

  50. hehe!! What a total cutie.

    Our Westie “Darwin” (may he RiP) used to steal food wherever he could. One such instance hubby still talks about was the time when he’d poured a bowl of cereal at the kitchen table, then needed to step away for some reason. When he started back down the stairs to the kitchen he found Darwin, hindfeet on chair, front paws on table, face in bowl. As hubby started moving ever faster towards the kitchen, “Darwin!! Get down!”, Darwin just started eating more frantically rather than running.
    It’s like he knew “I’m already in trouble, might as well make it worth my while!”
    I used to think it was a misnomer, but over the years I came to realize that “Darwin” was a darn good name for him.

    To this day we push our chairs tight in under the table. 🙂
