  3. O

    There goes my butt, laughed right off without me. Again.

    LOVE the reachy forepaw in the foreground.

  4. Christine says:

    Unfortunately, this is not the type of glogg that my dad makes every year.

  5. Nice bowl!

  6. useta hada kitteh says:

    The guy with the reachy forepaw in the middle is trying to get hold of the ladle so he can scoop himself outta there, cuz he’s gettin’ SKWISHED!

  7. Aw, how adorable. They’re all facing different directions. By the way, any more hidden at the back?

  8. Denise in Nebraska says:

    Quick! Someone grab the nutmeg, and hand it to our nut, Meg (who provides us with such wonderful holiday “beverages”)!!! Love it!!!

  9. hahaha, this is awesome!

  10. Cheers!

    [raises a frosty mug o’ pug]

  11. OOooo… Pug-a-licious babies!

    I needed this today.. Whoot for pugNog

  12. OMG!!!! ****SPLODE***

    Is that guy reaching for the ladle to stir himself in?

  13. NebraskaErin says:

    Awww! I love the little guy top center. He looks suspicious.

  14. Here’s to you as good as you are,
    Here’s to me as bad as I am,
    But as good as you are
    And as bad as I am
    I’m as good as you are
    As bad as I am.

    *A nice Irish toast to start off the pugg glogging*

  15. Is that guy second from the right snoozing? He’s all, “It’s warm and cozy, I’m good. Zzzzz…”

  16. “mmmmm…fuzzy….”

  17. That is absolutely darling. I wonder how many people it took to keep them all in the bowl.

  18. AlbertaGirl says:

    The perfect holiday centrepiece!

  19. Do they sell that at IKEA?

  20. lol how cute 🙂

  21. GHEY

  22. Now that is a bowl full of CUTE!!!

  23. I think we need a new adjective: an ‘overwhelm’ of puppies.

  24. pugmamatimestwo says:

    BABIES!!! I’ll take a big old lovin’ spoonful :):)

  25. Waiter, there’s a puppy in my glogg! Oh, wait, never mind.
    Glug glug glug.

  26. “Barkeep! There’s a pug in my grog! Bring me another. And another. Bring me the whole bowl and letsh shing a shong:
    “Oh we ain’t got a bowl of money…
    We may look ragged and funny…
    But we’re jammin’ on…
    Singing our song…
    Siiide by siiide.””

  27. IT’S PUG SOUP!!

  28. shanchan! Cheers.

  29. squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

  30. Snug as a pug in a mug…? 😉


  31. There nothing I like better than a serving of warm pug punch – or whatever house ‘tock the barman recommends – at my favorite pug pub.

  32. girlnextdoor says:

    they’re smooshy. I luff them.

  33. OH.



    How dewicious!

    I wanna bite dey wittew pug noses!

  34. CornedBee says:

    Two rules of cuteness (pile of cute things increases cuteness exponentially and dangling paws). Not bad at all.
    Actually, I would expand the rule, since I don’t think the dogs would be cute individually:
    “A heap of animals is cute, no matter what.”

    And how about a new category for piles of animals?

  35. New British pub name: The Pug and Bowl

  36. How did they get them to stay in the bowl long enough to get that shot?

  37. Who wants a cup of Pugnog?

  38. [raises paw]

  39. Awwwww! That’s adorabowl! … pun intended.

  40. D2D – You pulled the pug out from under me with that one.

    Laurie C- I love British pub names. I have always wanted to open one called The Dog and Fog. Pug and Bowl works too.


  42. The widdle one reaching for the ladle is all “eeeehhhhhhnnnnnnnnnnn – almost got it!” I wuv dem!

  43. *clink* Cheers pyrit!

    The puns! The puns! I just can’t get a handle on ’em.

  44. I can never decide whether pugs are cute or ugly. But I certainly want to hug them and squish their paws and pat their fat bellies and pinch their neck rolls!

    And after the MIB movies, I expect them to talk!

  45. Theo – Teh caps makel my pupils diladle. (You know I’m being sarcastic when I type in black.)


  47. Gaaaaahahahaha! Great great post and pic and comments, peeps!

    Best one of teh holiday season, but the season is young!

    The Pug and Mug is poifect, Laurie C!
    I always wanted to have a pub called the Frank and Stein.

    A properly prodigious porceline pug pile!

  48. …..six pugs a-punchin’.

  49. I have a little ladle
    It’s made, I think, of clay
    And when it serves the pugs up
    Then with them I shall play!

  50. You know, it’s fun to laugh and jest.

    But these pug youths – so tragic to see pups in their cups at such a young age – you know tonight will stagger into the cold, looking for a bed in some fleabag motel…

    I am not nuffing her, only speaking my beliefs as the founder of P.F.P: Peeptotalers For Pets.

    Keep your animals dry!

    (and warm!)

  51. Hell yeah, Lauri! Hot dogs & beer!

    Aubrey — you’re going to hurt yourself.

  52. Yummmm. Pugnog is the perfect complement to Klipspringer cookies.

  53. Yes, T., but a little stretching in the morning is always good for you.

  54. Theo – UR hurting my k’snurting.

  55. Hey! Rule #9 to cuteness!

  56. That ladle is as big as their heads. SO TINY!

  57. Ok now I know u must be swedish 😛

    Fuzzy glogg ftw!

  58. It’s the Tampa Bay Puganeers vs the Puggalo Bills in the Super Bowl. Pugskin down on the 6. Multiple offense. Too many pugs on the field. Face mask! Great, AND a free agent.

  59. Puggless Glogg

    One 750-ml bottle dry and fruity red wine, like Pinot Noir or Zinfandel
    One 750-ml bottle port
    Half 750-ml bottle cognac, brandy, rum, or vodka
    Zest of 1 orange
    10 cardamom pods
    2 cinnamon sticks
    10 cloves
    5 slices fresh ginger
    Sugar to taste
    1 cup raisins
    1 cup blanched slivered almonds

    Combine wine, port, spirit, orange zest, and spices in saucepan, along with 2 cups water; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Cool, cover, and refrigerate overnight, at least 12 hours. Strain the mixture, then reheat (do not boil) and add sugar. Add the raisins and almonds (you might put a teaspoonful in each glass) and serve hot. (recipe from Mark Bittman’s The Best Recipes in the World) –

  61. ńňʼnή₪№

    …are any of those close enough?

  62. Pyrit, you’re going to k’snurt yourself.

  63. Umlauts! Dragees!

    Aubrey, you are an inspiration as usual, dear! 🙂

    Wow, that grogg recippe is going to get tried out this season, EricaE! It sounds goooood!

  64. Not grog, silly. That’s watered-down rum (or rummed-up water).

  65. 100 ladles of pugs in the bowl
    100 ladles of pug
    Take one down, and pass him around
    99 ladles of pug in the bowl

    Hey, someone’s already been at these pugs, and hasn’t been sharing.

  66. pugnog!! spiff!

  67. little gator says:

    Why is it reaching for the ladle? Is it gogin to hit the other puggies with it?

  68. If that’s so, little gator, then with good reason would anyone be agog at a dog in grog.

    pyrit, you’ve reminded me – does anyone know when the Puppy Bowl airs next year?

  69. lurkertype says:

    RE: pub names, don’t forget the fabled “Frog and Peach”.

    Man, I bought me some glogg mix at IKEA a couple days ago, and there was not even a suggestion that you could mix it with piles o’ pugs!

    (And, yes, ever since MIB, I expect them to have tough-guy voices too)

    +1 for Thalia’s excess umlautage.

  70. Teughcats says:

    Aubrey – isn’t Puppy Bowl the same day as Super Bowl? Even the same time?

  71. michellemybelle says:

    I saw an ad for the Puppy Bowl – it’s February 4. They’re also adding Tail Gating this year, FYI.

    I want this centerpiece for my table. NOW!

  72. (lunching – looks up from a decent frog and a nice bit of peach)

    You say something, LT?

  73. I *do* hope that frog was crunchy.

  74. Best. Caption. Ever.

    Umlauts make EVERYTHING awesome!

    But “pugnog” is awesome too.

  75. Positive Jube says:

    Pug-a-lug everyone!

    love the doily too *singsong*

  76. Here we come a’puggailing
    Among the tails so curled…

  77. Speaking of hurting your k’snurting, does anyone else remember how the limerick goes that ends:
    You’re shirkin your firkin, you bastard.

  78. ROFL, PosJube!

    I love you guys!! *sloshes pugs everywhere*

  79. Thank you, Meg! This made my day! PUG LUV!

  80. Teughcats, I think you’re right – what a fabulously outlandish piece of scheduling!

    Redz, I Googled that line…naughty, naughty!

    And T., those chocs are for dessert.

  81. Wolverine Librarian says:

    I believe the limerick goes thusly:
    Let us now broach a lurkin to Derkin
    Addicted to jerkin his gherkin
    His wife said, “Now Derkin,
    By jerkin your gherkin
    you’re shirkin your firkin, you bastard.

  82. Huh, wonder why I didn’t google it? Oh, ’cause then I wouldn’t have had an excuse to make everyone else learn the limerick. (Evil deed for the day–check.)

  83. wolverine librarian, i just peed myself.

    :bows to you:

  84. P. Erasmus says:
  85. Wolverine Librarian says:

    Just a regular reference question in the life of a librarian. No question too bawdy or off-color. You’ve got to be able to keep a straight face when patrons come in and ask for a color atlas of STDs.

  86. Ohhhhh… I just love your site. Keep em coming.. meets my daily dose of tickles and cuteness!

  87. Lol, wonderful, Wolverine Librarian!

    Um, Wolverine, as in Ann Arbor?

  88. I was kinda hoping for Wolverine, as in adamantium-reinforced skeleton coupled with a massively enhanced capacity for healing.

  89. I know what I want for Christmas!

    Mua ha ha, The best part is, if a puppy like that “mysteriously” showed up Christmas morning, no one at my house would have the heart not to keep them… (raises eyebrows)

  90. Wolverine Librarian says:

    As in Michigan. I work in the Bermuda triangle of College sports. I have Fighting Irish to the south, Spartans to the north and Wolverines to the East.
    (Whispers) My first crush was Wolverine of course I was 9. My friends first crush was Scooby Doo

  91. Brak_Silverbone says:

    The one in front with his arm hanging out is all like, “… Wait, what? How’d I end up here?”

    I desperately want to beep each and every pug right on the nose.

  92. Wolverine Librarian says:

    I’m curious, why is there a sidebar link to the “Daily Kitten” but not the “Daily Puppy”?

  93. WolvLib: My first crush as Nightcrawler. I was 8.

  94. For Wolvereference:

  95. The top-most puppeh is quite a Disapproving Puglet. BWAH.

  96. Nice pupssssssssssssss, so cute, i wish i had one of them !! 🙂

  97. !!!!!!! Squeee!

    THAT’S my Pug Army, right there! 😀

  98. as a pug mom…i am in love!

  99. Wolverine Librarian says:

    Thanks for the link, I visit the “Daily Puppy” as a three part rotation during day between the daily kitten, puppy, and CO. I was just wondering why it’s not quick linked here like the “kitten” is.

  100. WLibrarian – you should add stuffonmycat.com to your day and make it a four part rotation. It’s another awesome site!

  101. Wolvie — it’s quick-linked *now*.
    It’s only fair; they have Cute Overload in *their* quick links.

  102. katherine says:

    I dunno — I think they’re kind of pugly.

  103. I love stuffonmycat!!!!!
    “mind control pancake” = I laughed for 2 weeks straight. Oh no, just thinking about it . . .

  104. they have like 9 and i don’t have any.
    hardly seems fair…

  105. LB in Cali says:

    I heard of spiking the punch but this is redonk.

  106. Never heard of puppy soup before. The puppies are cute by the way.

  107. Alma Jones says:

    this is so ugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  108. Sticks and stones, Alma Jones.

  109. katherine says:

    (I really think they’re cute, I just wanted to add to the PUNchbowl too)

  110. The secret to a delicious Yuletide NOG, is to put a little less egg, and a little more PUG!

    Mmmmm delish!

  111. The Marx Brothers did a film called Duck Soup….this is a great photo for the remake…Dog Soup.
