Ehn! Ehn! Ehn!

First time in the pool McSwimmersons here, wet pawsitude and all.


Thanks, Christina…



  1. I’m seriously envious of this pup. Think he’ll mind if we all jump in?

  2. Oy! That paw!

  3. chumblefuzz says:

    eeee! I love the one huge eye! *head goes splodey with cuteness*

  4. I hope that pool has a swim-up dogfood bar.

  5. chet's momma says:

    Panic in the POOL!!! Oh, wait. I can dog-paddle!

  6. lurkertype says:

    The PAW!!!

    Good news, Peeps: MomTux was taken away today by Animal Control. If she doesn’t croak by Friday (and she looks perfectly healthy), Mr. LT won’t have to get rabies shots.

    Phew. Thanks for all the helpful postings.

  7. *Paddle paddle paddle, just keepin’ me nostrils above the water, yep, that’s all, paddle paddle*

  8. chet's momma says:

    just when I thing meggers won’t be able to come up with a cuter photo name, there she goes again! PROSHULENT, people! soes cute!

  9. lurkerT, that is good news. The bit wounded bad enough without also having to get the rabies shots.

  10. “bit wounded” = “bite sounded”

    Don’t know how that one got out.

  11. OMG look at those huge eyes!

  12. gaaah! look at the face! look at the face! that expression…! he’s like “umpfg…oh that’s YOU?! O_O”

  13. what type of pooch is that?

  14. Yes, that is great news, LT!

  15. Laurie C, that’s what happens when you try to type while looking at cute puppehs!

  16. A thinker says:

    GAH!! I die!

  17. Catman Dude says:

    Do dogs naturally float?

  18. That is tooo cute, although I can’t imagine the grooming that needed to take place after the pool! Oy dogs with hair!

  19. Check out these Halloween costumes for Pets:

  20. “What kind of dog is it?”
    Why it’s a Portugese Water Dog, no, an Irish Water Spaniel, no, a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, no, a

  21. TheLoveOfIsis says:

    Pretty sure McSwimmerson’s is a Shitzu. That look on his face is priceless. He’s all like, “WTF have you people gotten me into?”

    That’s the same look my Lhasa had on his face when he first experienced swimming.

  22. TheLoveOfIsis says:

    In fact, that pup might be a Lhasa too, now that I take another look.

  23. Awwwwwww, pool puppeh!!!

    [holds nose]

    [jumps in]


  24. “Why it’s a Portugese Water Dog, no, an Irish Water Spaniel, no, a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, no, a

    OM- [non existant] god!

  25. [eyes pool]
    [estimates fluid volume]
    [begins calculating how many boxes of instant pudding mix would be necessary]

  26. Ewoks can swim?

    But seriously, my 2 dogs HATE swimming. And they’re spaniels. What gives? The look on their faces is quite similar to McPupperson’s here, all like, WHATTHEEFF!?! AREYOUTRYINGTODROWNME!?!

  27. chet's momma says:

    teho—-i love it!

  28. Waste of good pudding mix, Theo. Besides, you’re supposed to mix it with milk, not pool water and dog hair.

  29. threadjack:

    Say, Theo, have you been to the Daily Kitten site today?

    *singsongy* You should gooooo! You won’t regret eeeeeet! /singsongy


  30. OMG, RPenn. TUNG!! And his name is “Holden Catfield”!!
    Check it, Peeps:

  31. lurkertype says:

    Teho, don’t be wasting the puddin mix in chlorinated water!

  32. lurkertype says:

    Damp Muppy?

  33. lurkertype says:

    Lemon curry?

  34. A friend of mine’s black lab (who loves cats, no, not for dinner) is named Holden Dogfield. Nowhere near as funny as Catfield.

    As for pup- Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, la la la!

  35. T., there is a marmie. There is a marmie named Holden. There is a marmie named Holden with a PINK TONGUE.

  36. A thinker says:

    Ohmygoodness. Holden is holdin’ my heart. I am now beholden to him.

  37. lurkertype says:

    He’s the cat-cher in the rye.

  38. NebraskaErin says:

    Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…

  39. chet's momma says:

    lurkertype and kim h.-

    oh, come on now! It’s the IDEA of it that’s cute! Just imagine a giant pool of puddins, just waiting to be jumped in! wait for it….wait for it….*SMILE!* it’s funny.

  40. It’s a sweet pitcher of a catcher in the rye. I glove it.

  41. chet's momma says:

    holden is a cat-cher in a puddin pie! *eagerly looks for laughter….tumbleweeds roll by*

  42. “It’s the IDEA of it that’s cute!”


    You think? The pudding would be so thick, you’d have to bread (pudding) water.

    Let’s ask someone who knows from swimming: Mr. McSwimmersons?

  43. my only verbal reaction to this was

    the footie and the saucer eye!


    well of course you are. I hear you can make more money this way.

  45. chet's momma says:


    *runs off sobbing because I COULD NEVER BE SO CLEVER!!!!!!*

    {chet rolls his eyes}

  46. Let’s play some Jaws music for Mr. McSwimmersons.

    We can run around screaming, “We need a bigger pudding!”

    He will feel all big and scary.

  47. ‘We can run around screaming, “We need a bigger pudding!”‘

    You’re gonna need a bigger bowl.

  48. We need a bigger spoooon!

    *still running around after everyone else has toweled off and gone inside*

  49. So cute. My dog looks like that when she swims.

  50. michellemybelle says:

    All pets named Holden need the hats that are furry and have earflaps. I demand to see a picture of such a thing!

    The swimming pup is indeed proshulent. I bet he’s all cuddly after he gets out too…

  51. FYI, I’m never going to use “proshulent” as a word, because it sounds to me like blue-raspberry Slurpee diarrhea.

  52. You might have something very similiar to “blue-raspberry Slurpee diarrhea” if you ate a pool of puddin.

  53. Eat??
    Who said anything about EATING it??

  54. All the puddin’ talk did me in. I just made creme brulee, it is sitting on the counter getting lovely skins on it even as we type and read.

    However, I will NOT be putting blue raspberry slurpee on it.

    I will be putting a squiggle of butterscotch sauce and toasted pecans.

    Tank you berry much.

  55. Lauri, here, try a squiggle of hot buttered rum sauce? Yer berry welcome.

  56. Swimming, Swimming, Swimming, Just Keep Swimming.

  57. Lauri — we always just do a tablespoon of white sugar, and a BLOWTORCH. Perfect mix.

  58. Teho… my husband’s favorite fantasy involves a supermodel and a hot tub full of chocolate pudding… and this was long before CO.

  59. AuntieMame says:

    I just don’t get the pudding fantasies. I keep imagining getting sticky pudding in body crevices that weren’t meant to have pudding in them…

    I’m too fastidious to be any fun, I guess.

    And I’ll bet they can’t keep Swimmy McSwimmersons out of the pool now.

  60. AuntieMame — you just haven’t followed your imagination through to the next logical steps.

    …There. Now, isn’t that better?

  61. definitely a damp muppy, lurkertype – like all muppies, adorable and faintly ridiculous!

  62. The eyes! OH!! the eyes!

  63. chet's momma says:


  64. Love Mcswimmersons – as to what breed I agree with whoever said Lhasa – back before I became a total cat person I had a Lhasa – looked a lot like this. And Theo – thanks for the link to Holden – truly adorable with his little pink tonnage.

  65. AuntieMame says:

    My imagination is quite happy where it is, thank you, Theo.

  66. * watch the hair, Mom … you know I hate that blowdrying bit *

  67. A shih-tzu!! 🙂 Mine LOVES the water!

  68. ::digs in drawer for spoon::

  69. musicchick2 says:

    Pyrit: “pool-dle!” *snort* LOL!

    Theo: “Holden Catfield” awwwwwwwwwwww……

    Chet’s Momma: I’m not sure how pudding would feel squooshed up in….well, YOU know…*blushes furiously* And Auntie Mame agrees with me! 😉 Theo? I dunno ’bout Theo. *shakes head pondering Theo’s possible perv-i-ness re: pools ‘o puddin’*

    Aubrey: “It’s a sweet pitcher of a catcher in the rye. I glove it.” Groan! ROTFLMAO!

    Lauri: creme brulee?? *major head tilt* Baroo? Can I have some pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaase??!!

    PUPPEH: “Strokin’!”

  70. petgirl – I respectfully submit, Poppy is great!

  71. the daily puppy is betterer today..its the daily puppy halloween parade.

    check out wicket, the anatolian tiger.

  72. Happy Swimmy Mcswimmerson dogs! Poppy is a sweetheart, too!

    *Cranks up the pudding pult* Sproing!
    One creme brulee on the waaaaay, mc2!

  73. FYI — Glossary Update This Evening.
    Happy hunting.

  74. musicchick2 says:

    *dabs at creme brulee that got in her hair* MmmmMMMmmmmmm….’tanks Lauri! *dab, dab, lick lick*

  75. GreenEyedHawk says:

    My min pin Sparrow HATES water. If she even has to walk through a puddle, she freaks out and dances around like, OMG OMG I’M WET!! HOW COULD YOU LET THIS HAPPEN???

    As for Holden Catfield…some friends of mine have a Siamese cat named Chairman Meow.

  76. Denise in Nebraska says:

    My right eyeball is about to fall out. HELP! love, the doggie in the photo p.s. I’m lactose intolerant**subtle reference to talk of puddin’ in pool**….are you tryin’ to kill me?!


  78. Is that a Brussels Griffon?! @_@


  79. By the way — Esther’s right, that’s the update. (You’re welcome.)

  80. This little one looks positively terrifed! It’s a cute or sad moment here.
