[Blues guitar riff]

I’ve lost all mah moneh…
my girl and mah car.
and now I got nuthin’ but…
a paw cast and mason jar

A jar of mooooooooooooonshine [howls]


Barooooo, Sad Oscar and sender-inner Jessica J. ;(



  1. This is the just so sad. Poor little guy. All he needs is a neck cone to complete the misery.

  2. that dog looks how i feel.

  3. Oh please tell me someone is going to pick him up and love him. sob sob
    The song fits him well.

  4. Where’s the mason jar of moooonshiiine!?

  5. he just needs some petting… and some brushing. aw, lo’ hep me!

  6. I don’t believe I ever did see a dog pout like that before…

    sad puppy eyes, yes

    full on pout with leeps? never ever

  7. Aaaaw…poor little guy..

  8. Oh my poor baby! He needs some lovin’ – STAT!

  9. Awww, he’s got the broken-leg-someone-put-my-moonshine-outta-reach blues. Poor Oskare.

    Is he a Brussels Griffon?

  10. Nobody knows the trouble I seen…..Nobody knows my sorrow…..

  11. That is the saddest l’il pup ever!! I just want to hug and pet him/her ’til it’s all better!

  12. Awww… *SCHNUGGLE*

    He needs to have a chat with Thalia, the Colts pug from further down. They could commiserate about leg injuries over tea and biscuits. ^_^

  13. ditto ditto ditto

    now, the other thing that caught my eye was the shadow of the pup on the side of that cabinet(?). at first i thought it was a reflection like in a mirror because there seem to be dark knots in the wood that correspond with an ear and a nose. No?

  14. Meg…. I totally heard your caption in my head with the tune to that commercial…”I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan…..’cause I’m a WOMAN! Enjoli” LOL!

  15. He so sad! Poor li’l fella.

  16. Marmar – OMG! Yew are tewtally right! *insert twilight zone music here* Do-do-do-do Do-do-do-do

  17. awww. hang in there little dude. you’ll be “in the game” soon enough. what a sad face!

  18. Dont cry bebe…i am sure that soon you will find a fine island flower to chew on instead of my shoes;)

  19. Poor scruffle-bums. He’s got a cast and one of my guys has stitches on his belly. Its a blue day for puppehs.

  20. Poor little puppers. All he needs is a teeny tiny tear trickling down his cheek.

  21. I love it! The blues song caption, not the fact the puppeh is injured! This is sad and cute. Poor little scruffy doggie! Too bad he doesn’t have some moonshine.

  22. Oh That Sad Sad Puppy Face…..I Nee eed A Tree ee aat To Make Me feel Be eh tter

  23. Okay, so I just came from pajiba.com and read their 10 most tear jerking moments on film or tv…which proceeded to make me BAWL. And I come here for a pick me up. Only now I’m crying harder for wee leetle oscar. Sniffle.

  24. Oh my Loh! Oscar has done hurt my heart.

  25. Marmar,
    I totally see it too! Wow, this picture just got downright artsy! Even the grai n in the wood looks like it could be the fur in a mirror reflection. Very well composed shot.

  26. I heart the song!!!

    He needs a kiss – send him over our way!!

  27. I think he’s an Affenpinscher. He sure is cute.

  28. juliette, me too. perfect expression of a blue Wednesday. oh woe!

  29. Awwwwwwww… *snif*


    Don’t be sad Oscar…You are too cute to be sad.

  31. I’ve lost all mah moneh…
    my girl and mah car.
    and now I got nuthin’ but…
    a paw cast and mason jar

    A jar of mooooooooooooonshine [howls]
    Oh just a jar of moooooooonshine

    I was down at the pub
    but they throoo me ouuuuut
    I broke my paw and got kicked about

    my girl and mah car.
    and now I got nuthin’ but…
    a paw cast and mason jar

    A jar of mooooooooooooonshine
    Oh just a jar of mooooooooooonshine

    Now nobody loves or pats me
    as i sit in the dark
    nobody hears me
    no matter how much i bark

    A jar of mooooooooooooonshine
    Oh just a jar of mooooooooooonshine

  32. oops, forget that second part about the girl and car, i accidentally copied it wrong

  33. Okay, I totally see the blues reference, BUT-

    did anybody else look at his hairdo, pout & blue spandex bandage and think: 80’s glam metal?? I like to think he’s not hurt, he’s just dolled himself up for the album cover shoot. The chixx are gonna go crazee for him!!

    What? nobody else? Oh well.

    (wanders off singing “sweet child o’ mine”)

  34. Cute But Sad. Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  35. pookiepuff says:

    AWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! Someone hold the poor little pup and snorgle him! He needs a good snorgling!

  36. michellemybelle says:

    I want to hug him until he’s better – what a wonderful leetle doggie.

  37. Miss Beth says:

    That’s simultaneously tragic AND precious.

  38. “I feeuhl so bayud I got a wuhrried mind, Ahm so lonesum awl teh time, since ah left mah bebeh behind, o-o-on Balue Bayoo-oo-oo,” boo-hoo-hoo. . .

  39. As mothers used to say, “You could sit on that bottom lip.”

  40. pyrit — Blue Baroo?

  41. Hester – Yes! Like in Flashdance?? LOL!

    Pyrit – my Mom used to say that too, only it was “dance” on that lip. Then she’d take her fingers and try to “dance” on my bottom lip until I cracked up.

    Blue Baroo reference, Pyrit & Pheas. AWESOME! I even gots that Linda Ronstadt album (on cassette!) LOL!

  42. Awwwwww!

  43. I thought of baroo but it didn’t fit the mood. Cute though.

  44. Now since my owner left me
    I’ve found a new place to dwell:
    for the cost of the bone you eat
    at Pawbreak Hotel.
    I’m so lonely, I’m so lonely,
    I’m so lonely that I could die.

    And though CO’s always crowded
    Meg can still find some room
    for broken leg-ged puppehs
    to cry there in the gloom
    and be so lonely, oh so lonely,
    oh so lonely they could die.

    Bright colors are not showing,
    bananaphones are black.
    They all add to a lonely scene
    and that sure’s a fact
    and it’s so lonely, oh it’s so lonely,
    it’s so lonely I could die.

    So if your owner leaves
    and a tail your howls can sell
    just walk on with your three good feet to Pawbreak Hotel
    where you’ll be lonely and Oscar’s lonely,
    we’ll be so lonely that we could die.

  45. goodness grasheous, i can here that blues shuffle and that sad doggie howwwwl sure enough. bless that doggie’s fluffy muzzlepuff and pass the mason jar!

  46. Aubrey — you ain’t never caught a rabbit…

  47. T., you thought you were high class…


  48. Anastasia_Beaverhousen says:

    awwwwww!!! he is totally working that pout, poor oscar! he looks like a brussels griffon…I have one that makes the same face ALL the time…to get out of trouble, to get some extra love…to get a treat…you get the point..

  49. you guys r silly says:

    I’m just a broken puppeh
    a sittin’ on a parquet floor
    I’m wedged in here next to the cupboard
    and the backyard door
    I’ve got the
    sad puppeh blues, mah brothah…
    I’ve got the sad puppeh blues…
    ain’t no one to kiss my muzzlepuff
    couldn’t it please be one of youse? . . .

  50. Bunneh…with the blues? Don’t get it. You’ll have to provde me with some Clues to these Blues.

  51. BlueFairy says:

    Oscar looks just like my Frankie. Please somebody say what breed he is. I picked up Frank from the side of the road. And yes, Frank can look as sad as that without a cast. But he can look really happy too.

  52. This just recalls to me the best moment of my first BB King concert, when he sings, “Nobody loves me, ‘cept my mother. And she might be jivin’ too.”

    Poor pupper, I’m not jivin’.

    Teho & Aubrey–you guys are tearing it up today. [applause]

  53. aw! That is the cutest sad-puppy face ever. Great photo too!

  54. And ygrs too! waaahhh.

  55. “Assemble round, O, dear children of CO, Oscar’s is a sad tale of woe, …”

  56. I Always Heard: “A Birdies Gonna come Sit (Yeah; Sit Is WhatI Heard)On That Lip”

  57. SOMEbody’s feet’s steppin’ mighty close to my blue suede shoes.
    Won’t say whose.

  58. OK; Gonna Try My Luck Here

    Sittin Here In Limbo o
    Like A Dog Without A Bo one
    Sittin Here In Limbo o
    Knowing That I’ve Got To “Go ooo”
    Well; They’s Been Some resistence
    But I Know That My Faith Will Lead Me On

    Sittin Here In Limbo o
    Waiting For The Cast To Mol old
    Sitting Here In Limbo While My Food Is Gettin Co oold
    Well; Theys Been Some Resistence
    But I Know That Faith Will Lead Me On

    I Don’t Know Where Life Will Lead Me
    But I Know Where I’ve Been
    I Don’t Know What Life Will Show Me
    But I Know What I’ve Seen
    Had Ny Share Love And Friendships
    But What’s In The Past Is Gone
    This Little Dog Is Movin On

  59. Forgot To Mention John Sabastian And His Album Tarzana Kid

  60. Baroo..indeed. sad sad sad. I just heard a crack – it was my heart breaking:(

  61. This photo is definately a Hallmark moment.

    Poor little guy! 😦

  62. Can I have the Tabs for that song?

  63. pyrit, mc2, roberta-
    My lil sis was a big proponent of that pout, and my dad used to call it “the pig tripper.” Oooh man, did that always bust me up.
    How great to hear all the variations! Never heard the bird perch or dance floor before!

  64. I wish I could put that poor little puppeh on my lap, and we could have a big, long cry together right now. 😦

    I’m feeling just like him.

  65. Paws up and hugs all around to all the CO-ers (human and not so human) feeling poorly right now.

  66. Bless thats one sad looking doggo.

  67. Yitzysmommie says:

    I love kittehs WAY more than puppehs, but poor sad Oscar makes me want to snorgle & cuddle & pet him. Poor baby! Hope he’s bouncing around again.

  68. Awesome photography – I swear the grain of the wood, which at first glace looked like the pattern of the fur, made the shadow look like a reflection!

  69. Karen in Toronto says:

    Play the song backwards:

    “Got my girl back,
    Got my truck back,
    Got my pwner back,
    My leg’s out ‘a the caaaaast…”

  70. “I’m bluer than blue,
    Sadder than sad . .”

    (Beary Wormilow ;-))

  71. Karen in Someplace Further North — LOL!
    Whoa-oh, I got them back-masked oranges…

  72. Well I ain’t seen my foot on nigh on a week.
    Wanna get gassed so I can’t even speak.
    Come on down here and listen to me.
    One treat ain’t enough man, ya better make it three.

    One Milkbone
    One Snausage &
    One Pig Ear

    (Apolgies to George and the Destroyers)

  73. I love the shadow on the wood behind him. The knots in the wood sorta look like an ear and a nose.

  74. “The old grey ‘dog’, ‘Oscar’, stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, “Why?” and sometimes he thought, “Wherefore?” and sometimes he thought, “Inasmuch as which?” and sometimes he didn’t quite know what he was thinking about.”
    (from, Eeyore’s Thistly Hideaway)

  75. Hester…..The Pig Tripper If Funny.

  76. TFMS…..I Was Thinking I Needed To Offer Appologies For Mine. When I Sing It It My Head, It’s In MY VOICE…..L O L

  77. His face totally says “My baby done left me” 😦

    Poor little dude.

  78. Awhhh… Poor Oscar. Please post another picture when he is feeling all better.

  79. That shadow on the wall is amazing. Poor lickle doggy.

  80. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    Oh mah gosh, prosh prosh prosh.

  81. Awwww, poor lil’ pup.


  82. MelissaLovesPugs says:

    Poor little precious bebeh! He needs hugs and cuddles!

  83. TFMS & the Destroyers! Rockin’!

  84. Anyone care to paint Oscar on black velvet?

  85. Blue Cast Blues

    Hurt my foot yesterday. Wrote a song about it.. here it go.

    Got my leg in a blue cast… it’s hurtin’ pretty bad.

    I said I got my leg in a bub bub bub blue cast and I’ts achin’ oh so baaaad.

    Now my pic is on Cute Overload, I knows I’m cute…but sad.


  86. Maybe if he visits Cute Overload he will feel better.

  87. He’s just unbelieveably adorable, dance floor pout and all, and now I wants me one! I didn’t even know about the Affenpincher breed but it was love at first sight.

  88. I must know what kind of a puppy this is! SOOOOOOOO cute!

  89. His fluffy shadow looks so cool!

  90. awww this looks like my pugapoo.

    poor little guy.

  91. Aaaah, the talent around here never relents! Applause all around!
    And careful hugs to Oscar.

  92. Sniffle. I hope little dude is ok.

  93. Alice Shortcake says:

    The saddest little dog I’ve ever seen. I hope his leg will be better soon.

  94. darkshines says:

    When Tom Waits wrote Rain Dogs, it was about this little dude….*plays harmonica*

  95. Awww! I can relate since I broke my wrist and now have a cast on it. Baroo, little guy! Get better…

  96. jordan Grabow says:

    does anyone else see how remarkable the shadow is?

  97. i have a doggie called pippy and she is very cute i might send you a photo of my precious dog.

  98. I just wanna give this little guy a whole mess of kisses!!!

  99. This is the saddest dog I’ve ever seen. All it needs now is an emo MySpace profile.

  100. The blues eats emo with a moonshine chaser, sonny.

  101. luvylove says:

    I seriously can’t even handle how cute this sad sweet baby is!! My head just popped off!

  102. how is he doing now? can u post pics, wish him the best, hes sad but adorable, love him

  103. jessica jones says:

    Hey everyone, that’s my little dog Oscar you have all been loving (with the exception of Danny, but to each his own). Oscar is a Brussels Griffon and he’s in excellent shape now. Fully recovered and still pouting daily to get his way!

  104. Thanks, Jessica J. Nice pic.

  105. poor oscar, i hope he feels better…):>
