The Bikini Inspector Has Spoken

"Oh, oh, I don’t think so.

You are NOT wearing that out are you?

Turn around." [motions with paw]


[suspicious head tilt] "Oh no, no no no no."


Danielle L., THIS is what happens if you don’t listen to the inspector: Aieee!

    love the puppy at the beach! can i play too

  2. mervtheflamingo says:

    Awww!! So cute!

  3. Juniper Jupiter says:

    Oh my gahd!

    The PERFECT slight tilt baroo on the second pic! :D!!

  4. Delicious chocolate-ness!

  5. Awzzzz, I want one!

  6. AuntieMame says:

    Ugh. Donatella or not Donatella, she ought to know better at her age.

    Listen to the puppy! Baroo!

  7. It’s cold and snowy here right now and snuggling up with this pup would be heavenly.

  8. That has got to be the cutest puppy EVAR!!

  9. I’m having a hard time reconciling the adorableness of the puppy with the bile in my mouth from clicking the link.

    [which isn’t meant to sound, nuffy, mind…]

  10. kibblenibble says:

    Puppalishus! Baroo!

  11. Boomer's Babysitter says:

    I’ll go with the one-piece, then… And I agree, there is seriously a problem with the “figure” in the linkage. Go there, if you dare… or not.

  12. Yitzysmommie says:

    Puppy = very Qte.
    Donatella = OMG, get that woman a towel!

  13. It’s all about the sandy splayed toes.

  14. I know you guys!! when I saw this little guy he was all love… not even nibbling the way puppies do… he was super camera shy so this shot made me happy! 😉

  15. Sandra S. says:

    I love CO, and I love looking at adorable puppies. I have no idea why you chose to bring ridiculing women’s bodies for being unappealing into this. Not only is it irrelevant, but it’s distasteful. Thanks Meg, for making CO mean-spirited and catty.

  16. Need to nuzzle white chest immediately.

  17. To Sandra S. and anyone else feeling disappointed…
    First, I don’t think inspector puppy is meant to be unkind–just concerned about too moishe
    expo-sh. The most perfect body can look laughable to some with over-expo-sh…
    Second, the elderly lady in the pix is certainly not Donatella, who is only
    53. You know, sometimes advanced age loses judgement or realistic view, and we need to treat that person with understanding–even though it is sad.
    Third, our culture has, I think, gone overboard about perfection and exposure. I feel sorry for celebrities who are so concerned with physical perfection that they write
    weight and measurement requirements into their
    pre-nuptial agreements. Without genuine love and regard for one’s partner, the “beautiful people” become bored with one another, always seeking a new partner who measures up to those perfect standards.
    Four (and, I promise, last)
    Love and respect work for me. A little cover-up turns me on. Endless pictures of perfect bodies
    matter less than endless hours of caring about each other, sharing laughs and
    beliefs, missing one another when apart, helping each other work towards a goal.

  18. The Bikini Inspector is lucky he’s so cute!

  19. AuntieMame says:

    Sandra S., did you click the link?

  20. Cute Puppeh! So chocolatty and very sweet, I’m sure. I wonder if s/he likes the water…s/he looks like a chocolate Lab to me!

    While Donatella has the RIGHT to wear what she wants, but just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Her skin is awfully close to the Dermatologist-on-call stage, no? Poor thing- she probably didn’t count on being photoed, either, I hope. Good Lord…….

  21. AIEE! It’s Scrappy Doo! XD
    (That look in the second pic says it all)

  22. AWWWWW!!! He can ground me for wearing a bikini anytime!

  23. puppeeeeeeehhhh!!!!

    as for the Donatella pix…she kinda deserves the shiznit she gets. she certainly LOVES to dish it out.

    her own daughter has been suffering from crippling eating disorders since she was THIRTEEN! and she’s extremely vocal and obnoxious like Lagerfeld about how distasteful she finds “fat people” and the like.

    she needs to be taken down a notch.

    or twenty.

    frickin’ tasteless, talentless old hag still ridin’ her brother’s coattails over a decade later…..

    *grumble grumble*

    i mean, wha? PUPPEH!!!! EAR NOMMAGE! i think i will just have a little cronshe on the ears…

  24. Gail (the first one) says:

    Yay for puppeh!!!!!!!!!

    A resounding “Ewwwwww” for *whoever* that is wearing that bikini! As a fat woman, I developed a phrase for myself (and others I see), “Just because they’ll SELL it to you doesn’t mean you should WEAR it!”

    I think there should probably be age limits on bikinis, at least in public. Pretty much limited to under 30, unless you’ve been hired for the SI Swimsuit Issue!!!

  25. Gasp! That puppy is precious!

  26. AuntieMame says:

    For the record, folks, that’s NOT Dontatella in the link. It’s apparently an Italian countess who lives on St. Bart’s. Who still ought to know better.

  27. That’s right! How dare a woman wear clothing she likes? Doesn’t she know that she has an obligation to be PRETTY?

  28. Chocolate lab puppy–with
    sprinkles, please.

  29. This reminds me–I’d like to take our dog “Tony” on a trip with us to the beach.

  30. Ugh, could’ve done without the beef jerky in the bikini photo. But puppehs are always cute!

  31. wuv da bebe….so prosh i go kerplop. want to play too…love choco labs. especially the baby kind

  32. Kristabelle says:

    What an adorable little puppy!!! He needs to be scooped up and nuzzled!!!

  33. AuntieMame says:

    Sandra, it’s not a matter of being pretty. It’s a matter of pretending to be 18 when you’re clearly not.

  34. IF I may, are we discussing modesty? HMM? Well there are times when modesty is appropriate. Tiny little bikinis are generally for the young and the shapely, yes. But, as you can clearly see, this lady has been in the sun a lot, and perhaps she doesn’t realize what the sun has done to her skin. Seriously.
    I’d love to hear what the concept of ‘modesty’ means to people! I think it is the realization that some styles of clothing are more appropriate than others for certain events or time, but the lady is at the beach, and it is probably her beach, so I guess this picture is out of my ‘jursdiction’!

  35. This is my future PUPPY!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Hey. If you aren’t fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm.
    I am from France and now teach English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: “How to draw robots and aliens the results of price comparing various online bookstores for this book.”

    With best wishes ;-), Jina.
