Sorry, we’re out of sugar gliders…

… may we offer you a nice puppy instead?  Time for a C.O. math lesson: (Dainty Paws * Paws Up) + Look of Helplessness = Pudding Brains!

You diss these nails, and I am SO biting you.

Your Ringo is quite a star, Jen D.



  1. Arielle says:

    Oh wow…those ears!

  2. hon glad says:

    Silky fur and dainty paw pads,cradled in a strong pair of protective hands=Pudding brains

  3. what about eye capsules?! Lest us not forget those little nuggets of goodness!

  4. fish eye no miko says:

    The tiny ears! The widdle nose! The face! The–[head explodes]

  5. Ok, he’s not really mine. I wish. He belongs to a friend of a friend and he’s about a week old in this pic. But I saw it and couldn’t resist.

  6. Katrina says:

    Arielle- you said it- those impossible little ears!

  7. And what will the little cutie be when it grows up? A dachshound?

  8. The earses, the paws, the weensy schnozzle– what a tasty little boo-boo! I’d say “snack size”– one and a half chocolate bites, at the VERY most…

  9. I want to rub my thumb on that sleek little head and that tiny sliver of pink bell-bell is killing me!

  10. Berdine says:

    She is a miniature longhaired Dachshund named Ringo. Her brother is even more cute…if you can imagine THAT being possible!

  11. snorglepup says:

    Little pocket-pup for a quick snorgle fix.
    May I have two please?

  12. snorglepup says:

    Mmm.I could nibble those little ears right off.
    Nom nom nom…

  13. crazyweinerdoglady says:

    weinerdog? really? Wow, the ears are so short! lol SO cute though.

  14. crazyweinerdoglady says:

    oh yeah almost forgot…


  15. Theresa says:

    Mini-airplane ears!

    That little one looks fresh out of the oven, if you know what I mean.

  16. What a teeny tiny little pup!

  17. you think that the average CO’er can’t look at a puppeh with out *dissolves in to goo*

  18. Layla42 says:

    Awesome mouseover. Srsly.

    And those teensy feets! I don’t think he’ll mind if I nibble on those little bitty paw paddies..

  19. Widdle Dauchshund *__*

  20. Now THAT is how to do a hovertext. Bravo, Other Mike. Bravo.

  21. So tiny! So shiny! So verreh nummy! I neeble gently so as not to wake her up.


  23. SQUEEEE!!! I love the teensy widdle claws! Even those look nommable in such a teeny tiny puppeh! Yep, I think Ringo is definitely a star(let). So, what’s her brother’s name?

  24. catablob says:


  25. ThreeCatNight says:

    I Want to Hold Your Paw!

  26. browngrl says:

    that is an entirely acceptable trade – I shall take my pup in a cup and go

  27. Eye capsules!
    Helpless belly!
    Delectable paw pads!
    Redonk ears!

    Oh, and love the new innovation: Anti-Nuff Hovertext.

  28. must…have…..puppeh……

    excuse me, suh, but I’d like to have more, please!

  29. Erebella says:

    Oh, could you watch your step there? (says to co-worker) Yeah, that’s my brains on the floor. I know it looks like pudding, just hush and go away.

    Yeah, thanks Mike.

  30. chanpon says:

    Oh, must be one of those cocktail weinies. He looks delish!

    His mini paw pads and ears are killing me.

  31. Pretty sure it’s a mini pin but its soooo cute!

  32. Theresa says:

    @Kris, this one surely qualifies as “teeny-tiny-toony.”

  33. Put it back! It’s not done yet!

  34. Omg… this is too moishe. The itty bittyness! Also, I *heart* the round top of the head and those awesomest of ears.

    Cutest ears in the history of cute ears?

  35. I KNEW I should stay away from here when my sinuses are all clogged and the pressure is so intense.

    I swear I can smell the sweet puppeh smell even through this quite useless nose I have right now.



  37. The Other One Michelle says:

    Wow. Just…wow. Perfect.

  38. revolution724 says:

    I would never be able to have this picture taken. If I had that little baby in my hands, all you would be able to see would be the back of my head as I was smooching her on that copious forehead.

  39. Rachel Sweeden says:

    The pup is adorable.

  40. This could not any cuter be.

  41. Michelle says:

    tee hee. micro chub!

    *nibbles delicately*

  42. AuntieMame says:

    Maybe no one else noticed, NTMTOM, but I caught your pun, too. Ringo *is* a star, just like the eponymous Beatle. 🙂

  43. SQUEEEE! Aww, my brain is gonna leave a stain there.

  44. Yitzysmommie says:

    Metz, I too am suffering (speechlessly, too) with stuffy schnozzle & sore throat & the I-feel-sorry-for-myselfses.
    But I just made myself feel better by licking those paw pads. DEElish! I nevaire thought I could leeck a doggles paw pads until today.

  45. *gasps* I’ll take the puppeh instead!!! Right after I put my head back together b/c it just ‘sploded from the cute!!

  46. Is that puppy old enough to be away from its mom? It’s soo teeny. My pet rats are bigger than that. And so delectable! The leg wrinkles! The shiny forehead! The nibbleable ears! The clean paw pads!

    No THANKS.

  48. lmao @ cocktail weenie!! he is soooooo delectabuhles~ yum yum!

  49. BeanSidhe says:


    **stuffs pup in rack next to sugar glider and slinks away**

  50. You got pockets in there or something, Bean?

  51. The lovely Ringo lives with her mother and brother in a wee little village in the wilds of Eastern Ontario. So she isn’t actually away from her mom.

    And I’m still kinda in awe from my first accepted submish.

  52. The Other One Michelle says:

    Best. Hovertext. Ever.

    Or of the day. Whatevs.

  53. can'tstandsitanymore says:

    nobody, not even the rain, has such small paws.

  54. fleabit says:

    this puppy is too teeny to nom, unfortunately, you just have to pop him in your mouf like a popcorn shrimp

  55. fleabit says:

    gorgeous submish, foxy. the cuteness factors at work here, all magically in sync with each other, can not be understated. I mean, the toes, the toe pads, the baby butter bean ears . . .

  56. joliesmom says:

    That’s what my doxie’s pups looked like when I helped her deliver them! Dose ears duh tootest. 😀

  57. SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH………..wee one is sleeping……and…….look at the teeny weeny paws!!!

  58. scooterpants says:

    “HE’S AN ANGEL STRAIGHT FROM HEAVEN!”, “you know you gotta get him his dip-tep right? and what about his orthadonture, you got that set up right?, and his university….”
    “we got that set up right honey??? honey????”
    (stolen right straight off a Raising Arizona peoples)

  59. *ded of teh cuteness* oh, that’s presh!

  60. EES SO TINY!

    I’d love to see my fully-grown dog trying to make sense of the existence of that tiny tiny thing.

  61. Teeny tiny wiener. eeeeee…

  62. AIIIIIGH!!! TEENY TINY PUPPUMS! Peenk bellage! Jelly-bean paws!

    AWESOME hovertext!


  63. Also, those are the cutest, weensiest cankles EVER.

  64. How Cute !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want 1!!

  65. OMG its so tiny!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. Bramble says:

    OK, I usually prefer kittehs and weird animals to pups, but this one is WORMY!!!! SQEEEEEE!

  67. karen in toronto says:

    whispers: “Pawsickie! Pawsickie!” Chokes on rainbow.

  68. BeanSidhe says:

    No pockets. Just Adequate Rack Space.

  69. Reese A. says:

    OMG, his name is Ringo! He is a Starr!

  70. Oh I just want 2 hold it so badly!

  71. In March, Meg posted a picture of a flying squirrel, which just happened to be cradled in my hands. I have tiny bitten fingernails that you’d think would be completely inoffensive… but somebody commented to complain about them.

    I really love it when animals are cradled in a person’s hands. I think it makes it all the cuter, and adds another layer of complexity – it gives scale to the creature, shows the carefulness of the human and trust of the animal, and generally shows the dialogue between human and creature. This perfect pocket puppeh is cute, cute, cute – and all the cuter because the big, protective hands make her look so small, and she trusts the person so much and OH MY GOD IS THAT HER TINY LITTLE TAIL?

  72. Well it is nice to see Ringo on here but I must say that I was surprised due to the fact that I am the owner and had no clue that someone scooped the pic. if you crave more of this beautiful litter girl and her brother, who I might add just won a best puppy in show, go to
