The hills are alive, with the sound of YIPPING

Oh, someone did NOT submit this to the CuteTracker. No WAY. This is not happening. Cutest little bounder ever. Boing! Boing Boing! Check out the Fluffitude scale—he’s off the charts.


Thanks, CuteTracker!

    I give him a 50,000 on the fluffatitude meter…wow. that’s impressive.

  2. How can anyone’s mood not be lifted tremendously upon viewing this?? Pure, unadulterated freedom and joy!!

  3. Melissa says:


  4. I can’t believe we finally have the techology to capture such fluffitude on camera. These are truly wonderful times we live in!

  5. Eek! Is it real? It looks like a Fluffatron.

  6. Charliekwalker says:


  7. Hah! That’s FABULOUS!

    I so needed the cheering this morning. It’s raining and my bedroom window leaks. Has done so for almost a year now, and the apartment complex has done squat. Grrr. Feeling much better about facing the day after this picture!

  8. Melanie says:

    Weeeeee! I bet when he gets to the top he’s going to lay on his side and roll all the way back down!

  9. Fluffatron: a boingy animated puppet covered in massive amounts of fluff.

  10. awwwwwwwwww.

  11. Is it just me or can you guys literally hear BOING BOING BOING when you looka this thing?

  12. Tony James says:

    Um…what is it? It appears not to follow any of the regular Rules of Cuteness…

  13. Michele says:

    Actually, I think it only sounds like *boing boing boing* on hard surfaces. On grass it sounds like *fluffity fluffity fluffity*.

  14. Not “boing.”
    BYONG! BYONG! BYONG! SP00F! [wups, gopher hole]

  15. …maybe it’s not a dog at all. maybe a whole bunch of those white flowers rolled themselves up into a mass and went skipping up the hill.

  16. Aww, that’s the fluffiest little ball of fluff! Sure made my morning a whole lot better.

  17. I didn’t know dogs could binky.

  18. OMG, TOO CUTE! Is there such a thing as TOO CUTE?

  19. Jay Fry says:

    The fluffitude is almost too much. I want this happy puppy!

  20. Jan Spencer says:

    I see him/her singing ‘HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY! HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!’ Totally adorable.

  21. StormCat says:

    Michele – fluffity, I love it!!! I’ll be saying that for the rest of the day now… fluffity fluffity…

    Theo – as always a classic line and a big laugh…. gopher hole…that’s funny…

    I needed this laugh and between this anerable pic and everyone’s comments, I got my laugh!!!

    Can you just see his widdle fuffity ears bouncing up and down?!?
    and Skye, I CAN hear it in the pic!!!

  22. Wee hee! He has springs on his feet! Bouncybouncy bouncybouncybouncy!

    You can see his shadow underneath him, he’s up so high.

  23. Jan Spencer says:

    Hey, maybe he’s related to Tigger! Tigger’s BOUNCE!

  24. lmao. That’s the happiest puppy I’ve ever seen. FREEDOM! *boing boing boing* omg, so cute.

  25. The hills are alive with the sound of yipping
    With sounds they have barked for a thousand years
    This pup fills my heart with the sound of yipping
    My heart wants to snorgle every pup it sees

  26. A pup so nice
    A pup so nice
    On this morning you greet me
    Small and white
    Fluffy and bright
    You look happy to me, to me
    With curls white as snow
    On Cute Overload
    An inspiration

  27. *Love* the caption!!! and M-, good job indeed.

  28. awwwwww…I like that poem. Wouldn’t it be nice to leap and bound like a puppy through a field of white flowers? It’d be like living in a greeting card. Or a coffee break in the Dream Office.

  29. I just realized–haven’t seen finn in awhile hereabouts…

  30. Stroh’s — a beer. A can of beer.
    Yay — a day without a pun.
    Tree — it falls, but makes no sound.
    Baa — what wooley creatures hum.
    Doh — my last name’s not Von Trapp
    Hey — my lyrics are pure crap
    Tee — ah screw it.

    Fluffy dog.

  31. Finn’s vegging out on vaca’ in Spain. For reals.

  32. LOL!

    “what wooly creatures hum”

  40. Aside — have you noticed? In the CO comments, we now have a Jaypo, a J. Bo, and a Jaymoh. And occasionally a Jaye. Yay!

  41. no, teho.


  42. jaye is teho’s spouse.

  43. In keeping with the mix-n-match spelling, shouldn’t that be “Jyea” or something?

  44. ayje, perhaps.

  45. ok, whatev!

  46. Jno, it shouldn’t. 😉

  47. I don’t know who I am anymore…

  48. E.C. — “Jaye” isn’t nearly as anagrammable as “Solo Linen Cell.” Heh. 😉

  49. jaypo – does it really matter? 😉

  50. Perfect!

  51. “nope, no sir, I don’t like it.” –Cinnamon

    Think I’ll stick with jaypo.

  52. or “rink hate”

  53. or “knit hare”

  54. “or “rink hate” “

    ??? I’m confused now.

  55. or “neat hike”

    ok, stop.

  56. yes, you’d better, or you’ll be playing this game for the next 24 hours!

  57. AT, how about ink hater?

  58. 😀 we are amusing me.

    far too much.

    I Need To Work.

  59. One more, because I just couldn’t believe it: “Gnome Farts”

  61. AAAAAAAAAAAH. FL. Teho, you may be asking for trouble! 😉

  62. I don’t get it… :-\

  63. ohoh…Teho’s gonna get in trouble.

  64. How do you solve a problem like a maaaalteeeese?

    How do you catch a bun and watch it grooooow?

    Cause puppies are wont to play,

    So listen to what I say,

    How do you post this on Cute Overlooooooaaaad?

    OH, HOW do you solve a problem like a MAAALTEEEEESE?

  67. …and gnomes

  68. *helpless with laughter*

  70. Hee!

  71. “Hee” in response to TheIdleReceptionist, that is…

  72. omni-hee!! double hee. you guys are awesome. I love you all. Back to work…

  73. Uh oh – Now I’m going to be humming all the songs in The Sound of Music but thinking of all the wrong words.

  74. MWHID.

  75. Heather says:

    My god, all those song renditions have seriously made my day, I’m sitting here singing all of them as I read ’em!

  76. Michelle says:

    ::cups her hand in her armpit and plays along::

  77. At the risk of entering the realm of overkill, it looks to me as if Flufferkins might well be bidding us all…(sing it with me):

    So long, farewell, auf Weidersehen, adieu

    I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye — Goodbye!

    I’m glad to go, I cannot tell a lie

    I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly

    The bun has gone to bed and so must I…

  78. AAAAAAAAWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ‘Tis the cutest dog I hash seen in me life! Plush, I lub Sound o’ Music, too, so extra points for tat. Over all, a…1,000,000,000,000,000/10.

  79. Lillith says:

    See my first thought was

    Born free
    As free as the wind blows (my ears)
    As free as the grass grows

    The fluffitude, the yipness its all too much and then I read the thread and am *DED* from the cleverness!

  80. High on a hill bounced a fluffy white pup,
    Boing-oing he went with his ears and tail up,
    A man with a cam saw this fluffy white pup,
    Now he’s a star and a CuteO pin up,

  81. You delightful people are flibberty-gibbets, will-o-the-wisps and clowns.

  82. Meg better post something else fast before Theo finishes adapting Climb Ev’ry Mountain to suit the pooch…oh, thank the lawrd for the lawndree wahwah….

  83. Maybe it’s just me, but he looks 100% fake. Kile a little toy. Not cute for me. He really, REALLY does not look real and that isn’t cute.

  84. CORRECTION: I accidentaly wrote “kile.” I meant “like,” not kile.

  85. Christine says:


  86. vandevere says:

    It’s SPRING!!!

  87. I wish I were bounding around with the flufferkins in that green field filled with flowers, being that it is my birthday – what a fab picture! Reading the hysterical comments and songs…..and then Kmann has to put an end to it all and question the cuteness!! My birthday won’t be the same again…unless Theo finishes Climb every Mountain like Trish suggested….. 🙂

  88. Theo – Yes, I saw you snoozing on the job! I’m sure dreaming of snorgling something sweet! 😉

  89. omg!..that is soo cute!!..that caant b a real living lil pup!

  90. Brak_Silverbone says:

    That looks like a poodle. Is that a poodle? 🙂

  91. Dustbunny says:

    Brak — it was a standard poodle at one time. Then somebody put it in the dryer to fluff up its fur, and it shrunk. Now it’s a toy poodle.

  92. Brak_Silverbone says:

    Heh! I thought as much, Dustbunny. Nothin’ sproings like a poodle in the spring. 😀

  93. A flibberty-gibbet!! Someone else knows what a flibberty-gibbet is! Auf course it’s Aubrey. I know someone who saw a will o’the wisp, y’know…

  94. Waitwaitwait… can’t forget My Favorite Things…

    Raindrops on noses and whiskers on kittens
    Bright bunny bounces and pups which are smitten
    Cats in a mass all playing with strings
    These are a few of my favorite things….

  95. AuntieMame says:

    “Nothin’ sproings like a poodle in the spring.”

    Someone needs to start a collection of Bartlett’s Quotations for Cute Overload. 🙂

  96. I am thoroughly and absolutely enjoying this thread. I’ve got every darned Sound of Music song running through my head like an iPod outta control. This is good, good stuff.

  97. displayname says:

    Reminds me of “Little House on the Prairie”
    Careful, Pup! Don’t fall down the hill!

  98. “Someone needs to start a collection of Bartlett’s Quotations for Cute Overload.”

    Ahem… E.C.? If you and AuntieM maybe want to put something like this together, I can pretty it up (similar look & feel to the Glossary) & host it on SquidGrid. I bet Meg would even want to announce it in a “From the Management” post, and add a link to it in the More More More section.

  99. Hamsters in shavings and kittens in ta-tas,
    Bathtubs with hedgehogs and warm laundry wah-wahs,
    little white puppies who jump when it’s Spring
    These are a few of my favorite things

  100. Theo, there is a crying need for it. Perhaps I shall speak to some peeps about it, as it is a Very Big Task.

    Meg, great lyrics!

  101. One alteration here: “Little white *bunnies*…” (Can be used interchangeably with “puppies.”)

  102. I’m not usually a laugh-out-loud type, but this one, the headline especially, actually made me audibly giggle (in public – I’m on coffeeshop wireless).

  103. Kie Spring says:

    Wow I submitted this! My mom is going to be so happy. It’s her “Baby” after all. Funny to since our sir name is “Spring”! He is Maltese. Thanks for the fluffy fun comments!
