I’m just a skosh shy…

Just a skosh.

But if you put your face near my schnozzle, I WILL SLOBBER ALL OVER YOU!

Shy Girl, originally uploaded by Doxiementary.

Excellent find, Scott C. Princess Di eyes and everything.



  1. Bleen! Fuzzywuzzysnugglebunnybooboosweetnesscutepie!

  2. Hon Glad says:

    Giving us the Di eye.

  3. Squeeeeeeeeeee!


  4. That fur looks impossibly soft! *tries to pet screen*

  5. I saw this one the other day just clicking around on Flickr and instantly melted. Ridiculously cute.

  7. Furbabies says:

    My absolute fav: mini doxies! Impossible not to snorgle continuously. Thanks for teh cute.

  8. tesseract says:

    Awwwwwww!! I was looking away from the scren when it loaded and looked back and… SO CUTE!

  9. Silky ears!

  10. I wanna kiss that forehead and rub that little nose.

    borderline Princess Di eyes.

  11. 260Oakley says:

    Like a chocolate sampler… milk, bittersweet, and dark. I shall start sampling at the silky ears.

  12. oh my gawd. what a little angel!!!

  13. What a cutie-patootie! It’s okay, behbeh, I like shy pups. *kees*

  14. I’m a little light headed…. after looking into those eyes….(hand to forehead – crashing sounds)…where’s a fainting couch when you need it?

  15. [snicker]

    Shannon went *SPLOD*

    [more puerile snickering]

  16. Perhaps Splodding is Sploding into a puddle?

  17. Kris — I think that’s *SPLOSH*

  18. Oh my god those eyes. Okay… phew… I gotta sit down.

  19. Oh, my fault. I’m still new at this commenting thing, so I may have missed that one!!! Splode, Splosh, Bleen, Snorgle, Pa-sickie (for the record, I thought that was cute, but I am astonished at how much brouhaha that caused. It was a very short video!!!)

    Love the Asian girl ads on the left! YIKES!!! When’s the new site gonna be up? Are the comments always going to open in an new window?????

  20. ThreeCatNight says:

    “Look at that face,
    Just look at it,
    Look at that fabulous face of yours,
    I knew first look I took at it,
    It was a face that the world adores,
    Look at those eyes, as wise and as deep as the sea,
    Look at that nose, it shows what a nose should be!”

    (and I fall to the floor)

  21. You have more questions than I have answers for, Kris, but I’ll give ’em a shot…
    Meg has a great deal more on her plate right now even than usual. The CO site re-design is still in progress, but there’s no ETA. The Asian girl ads are on the to-be-addressed list. The comment popup thing can be ameliorated by adjusting your browser settings to open new windows in a new “tab” instead; you might try using the “back door” http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/ URL instead of http://www.cuteoverload.com too.

  22. Thank you for all those answers, Theo! Much appreciated!
    I love the site just the way it is, but I am curious to see the new one!
    Thanks for the backdoor too! (Ok, that totally sounded wrong, but you know what I mean!)

  23. cmonureds says:

    what a sweet l’il guy! he reminds me of Max in How the Grinch Stole Christmas

  24. Too Late says:

    I wants to keees heem!!!
    (The puppy, not Teho) 😉

  25. I don’t know whether to be saddened or relieved.


  26. :: splode ::

  27. I actually l-o-v-e the comments popping up in their own window! I find it VERY convient! Thanks Theo and Meg!

    [FYI, you’re welcome, but we can’t take credit for that… – Ed.]

    As for the puppeh…a little kissy right between the eyes is what I think is called for.

  28. Precious doggie! Ahhhnnn…

  29. Ermine Violin says:

    New site? Wha? HUH? What new site? Will we all be invited?

    The puppeh is sad thinking about not being invited to new site possibly…..

  30. Same site, EV. Updated appearance.

  31. Oh, really, now! A face like that just should not even be LEGAL! It’s too much,, I tell you!

  32. Big eyessss!

  33. brinnann says:

    Off-topic, but

    tesseract, I ♥ your screenname. Are you a Wrinkle in Time fan or a science junky? Or both?

  34. Ermine Violin says:

    why do I always go look at the fotostreams? OMG they’re dapple puppies! DAPPLE FOLKS!!!

    Chocolate and Vanilla!! mixed together – Latte puppies perchance?

  35. Too Late says:

    Lol@Teho! Neither do I. 😀

  36. Purdygirlee says:

    I love dogs, but man. I haaaate those dogs. Effing doxies.

  37. Michelle says:

    Is that puppy aware of the power he holds with that face? Goo’ lor’, I sure hope not. He could control the universe.

  38. angrycupcake says:

    I thought my dad was the only person to ever use the word “skosh”.
    That puppy is way too cute to exist! It must be my imagination, dreaming up something prosh to whisk me away to The Land of Cute.

  39. not to diss the ridiculously overly cutsie-cute dogsie but….

    are these human eyes photoshopped into the doggsie’s face!? they’re a bit bloody unbelievable looking!

  40. …BLEEN…

  41. brinnann says:

    No Kasia, it’s not ‘shopped human eyes. I think someone crazy with the crazy glue and googly eyes, like this: http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2007/12/bon-appetit.html

  42. brinnann says:

    Ahem, plz to be inserting the word “got” into the previous post. Kthxbai.

  43. Brinnann gettin crazy wif teh Cheez wiz.

    tsk 😉

  44. brinnann says:

    Whu-? Cheez wiz?!?! WHERE?!!?

  45. AuntieMame says:
  46. Okay, that puppeh eyes just killed me ded. :bloop:

  47. brinnann says:

    Cheez wiz comes in jars? M’kay, that’s weird.

    And that puppeh was double-dippin! Ewwww!

  48. Perhaps I should clarify, Brinn… [a’hem]
    What I meant was, you were speaking as if you were someplace else, a few comments ago. If you gather my meaning.

  49. i have a wienny like that. he’s a long haired, chocolate and tan/silver dapple with green eyes. he’s the most docile thing ever-

  50. brinnann says:

    *lol* I figured that’s what you meant, Theo, but I couldn’t let the cheez wiz go. And yes, I do tend to associate the two sites, so it all melts together (like cheez!!!), especially on CuteTalk (which is still down, bummer).

  51. brinnann: I believe Teho was saying something like, “Soy un puppydor, I’m a doxie, baby, so why dont’cha pet me?”

    /me dodges thrown crockery

    [Yeah, something like that, along with the other thing too… – Ed.]

  52. I’m feeling weak in the knees. Something that cute is impossible!

  53. Is it just me or does mr.pups look kind of like a furry donkey? With floppy ears instead of pert ones?

  54. crazy weinerdog lady says:

    Purdygirlee! GASP! You effin’ HATE doxies? I cry now 😦

  55. crazy weinerdog lady says:

    hehe went to Doxiementary… check THIS one out!


  56. Daphne Moss says:

    Hits on soo many cuteness criteria…
    Di eyes … check
    Soft ears … check
    Tiny … check

    Who could hate this?

  57. Those eyes!

    *am ded of cute*

  58. eikoleigh says:

    aaaaaaaaaaaaa………those eyes….

  59. OMG . . . should be required to come with a warning label . . . way too cute to be allowed 😀 !

  60. Evrabuddeh sing with meh:

    Sad eyes,
    Turn the other way
    I don’t wanna see you cry
    Sad eyes,
    You knew there’d come a day
    When we would have to say ‘goodbye’

  61. those eyes are creepy for some reason

  62. Okay, this is weird I know, but when I first looked at this ADORABLE puppeh—he/she reminded me of Barry Manilow! (not in the bad Botox, too much plastic surgery way)

  63. TurboFloof says:

    Don’t typically love doxies; but, LUUUURRRVE this doxie!

  64. I have some creepy advertisements for asian call girls on the side of my CO screen – and i dont like it.

  65. This is the most adorable pup I think I have ever seen. The cuteness is making my head asplode!

    To Mods: can you get rid of the Asian call girl ads/mail order bride ads? They’re really sleazy and have no place here on C.O.

    Thanks for listening!

  66. Kristina says:

    Sadly, I find this guy just a little on the creepy side of cute. But, then, I too am not a huge fan of dachsunds.

  67. ashagato says:

    And my time is a piece of wax fallin’ on a termite, that’s chokin on the splinters.

    Yo. Cut it…

  68. I linked my boyfriend to this picture, and he said it made him nervous. Why? “I see something that cute, I expect the other shoe to drop any second.”
    So apparently this pup is nervewrackingly cute.
    berthaservant, couldn’t she be the Baroness’s rival or something? She looks like a Dorothy Doxington.

  69. oh this is giving me an uncontrollable urge to scritch scritch scritch between those little earsies. And then when he looks up, well there’s gonna be a nose-beepin’.

  70. sooooooooooo cute!!!!!! Want to eat alive!!!

  71. I believes the word is “coy”. Or perhaps just “presh”…

    Either way, keeeeseable is the result!

  72. Margaret says:

    Oh my Jebus! If this dog ever starts a cult we are so screwed.

  73. Totalee Puppy says:

    Eyes that promise you will always be there…
    Colors of the autumn leaves…Go run and make
    them dance…
    Eyes that dance in firelight…resting by my
    Be my friend… be the promise…be the blessing..
    be the reason for joy.

  74. CHO CHWEET! I want to kees that hayd!

  75. OMG!!! that’s the ulimativest “puppy dogs eyes” ever!!!!

    I’ve never seen such a cute animal at co!!

  76. Christine H says:

    Theo, on the redesigned site, will it be easier to link to individual posts? *hopes*

  77. Raemie L. says:

    *attempts to pet puppeh’s soft fur*
    Dee puppeh’s Di eyes… *faints* Goodnite!

  78. Christine H — that probably won’t change. HOWEVER, it’s perfectly easy now, if you use the “permalink” that the posts always have. It’s in the same line as the date stamp; for example:

    “Excellent find, Scott C. Princess Di eyes and everything.

    “Posted by Meg on April 21, 2008 in Pups | Permalink “

    Just right-click on “Permalink” and choose either “Copy Shortcut” (Internet Explorer) or “Copy Link Location” (FireFox) from the popup menu. Safari or Opera might work a little differently, but it’ll still be possible… Then you can paste the direct post URL anywhere you please.

  79. ButtaRumCake says:

    The dainty paw-placement is what’s killin me ded.
    She’s all “I’m a lady” *plink*plink* (eyelash bat)


  80. OMG… you can see your reflection in those eyes!

  81. Anyone else think this dog looks like a Womble?

  82. OHNOYOUDIDN’T! You’ve gone and broken every single law out there regarding cuteness. This kind of cuteness should not be allowed. This is INSANE cuteness, and I am going to have to report you to the poleeeesh!!

  83. The only way it can be more cute is if the picture was taken while she was biting blue toy bone that’s half her size.

  84. OMG! Killing me with cuteness! Kisses!

  85. I want to squeeze its face and bite its paws somthing usually only kitties can stir in me!

  86. I will add womble dogs to the list!

  87. The fact that y’all even know what a Womble *is* kinda gives your age away. And mine too, I guess.

  88. Susie — you’re going to report this cuteness to the Polish??

  89. what what? Ive been 18 for many years now *shifty eyes*

  90. I just heard Meg interviewed on an NPR program on global warming. Meg confirmed how polar bears are good representatives of the impact of global warming because they’re so cute. She further listed the Rules of Cuteness which apply. I knew Meg made our lives better by Cutifying our world, but I had no idea she’s leading the charge to halt global warming. Go Meg!

  91. PitBullMom says:

    I am actually not typing this- someone else is typing for me because I am totally, completely dead from this puppy’s cuteness which is over the limit of human tolerance. What a doll!

  92. Is this not the very DEFINITION of “puppy dog eyes”?? I jus esploded wif happiness. 😀

  93. When I saw this (with those EYES) on Flickr Explore I knew I had to send it in to C.O.! 🙂

  94. This little girl is cute, but still think my submish of my little doxie boy is cuter…Maybe if I submit again, Meg?

  95. I seriously…when this loaded in my email, I let out *uncontrollable* squeals.

  96. Mary (the first) says:

    I was very sad at no new posts but if it’s because Meg is promoting a cure for Global Warming instead… GO MEG and I will patiently wait.

  97. Mary (the first) says:

    .. with maybe only a gentle “baroo” every now and then….

  98. brinnann says:

    Deb, post in the comments! We like to see other peeps pictures, ‘specially when there’s no new posts.

    *Disclaimer: No nuffing was creating in the typing of this comment. GO MEG for all the work you do.

  99. Brinnnan, I think this puppy is SO cute that he put Meg in a cuteness coma. She is no doubt being nursed back to health by the Dream Office staff nurse, a small grey kitten in a starched white nurses uniform.

  100. i am madly in love with this pupster, and it gets worse every time i check for new posts and see her sweet eyes staring back at me!!! i’m powerless…

  101. Maybe NPR will have it on their website!


  102. The program was “Word of Mouth,” produced by NH Public Radio. Here’s the link to the program. See the topic, “Polar Bears: Branding Global Warming.” You can listen to our very own Meg, Cuteologist Extraordnaire!

  103. seriously. I haven’t seen another dog that has such soul-ful eyes than dachshund…
    my doxie gives me these eyes that make me a big pile of “awwwwwwwwwwww”

  104. Nooooo!!!! Don’t report it to the Polish!! Not the Polish! lol

  105. We just rescued a long-haired dach from the shelter. He looks exactly like the photo! If anyone can suggest a name, we would be grateful. So far, he’s the pee-pee (ahem) wonder.

  106. BlueAyez says:

    Might as well shut it down now. Never gonna find a cuter animal pic…

    As for the new adoptee — if it looks just like this one — just like those paintings on velvet of the big eyed kids– I’d call him Isley (eyes lee). Congratulations on your new furchild.

  107. @ Gail:

    oh mandy,
    you came and you gave without taking
    and i sent you away,
    oh mandy….

    i believe this is the manilow you were looking for? perhaps? (and yes, i am a little ashamed that i knew that)…

  108. Christine H says:

    Thanks, Theo. I had been using the Trackback URLs to link, which don’t always work.

  109. I think it looks a lot like the chick from The Grudge


  110. @bastet: Thanks, I forgot all about that one!! (and yeah, I know all the words too…with about a billlliiion more-LOL!)

  111. Dis is what cuteoverload is all bout yo! Fo-shizzle!

    God that just made my day.

  112. Jewelz_4_U says:

    I think this puppeh reminds me of Eliza from Survivor – espesh the last few weeks as she kept her head so low when she knew she was on the block to go. Sooooo cute!!!

  113. Totalee Puppy says:

    Puppy Prosh…Me, no chance…Good-bye cute world…leave all my squeak-toys to puppy…

  114. I love cute – but I love naturally cute. Sorry, fans, but this one is photoshopped.

  115. Doxiementary says:

    This pic is not photoshopped at all. I don’t even know how to use photoshop that well. She just has really big eyes – sometimes creepy but mostly cute.
