Wendy the Awesome ScrapBooktress says pup Dexter was signing forms in triplicate when he was caught blue-handed.



  1. Lerrinus says:

  2. zeldapie says:

  3. Katiedid says:

  4. Katiedid says:

    they* :-S

  5. dawgpup93 says:

    YOU CANT PROVE ANYTHING!!! muahahahahaha!!!

  6. Strawberry says:

    Is this a white labradoodle or a straight up poodle? Love the eyes.

  7. It’s a Rhapsodoodle in Blue.

  8. Von Zeppelin says:

    Dexter did his best to disguise himself by wearing the white bathmat, but, unfortunately, the blue ink still showed.

  9. charliewabba says:

    No, Pyrit, it’s the new music sensation Rapsodoodle Dex Doggy Dog

  10. Katrina says:

    OOh, now poodles come in stripes, too! That’s show those fancy parti-colored and ASCOB Cocker Spaniels a thing or two!

  11. Hon Glad says:

    I cannot lie, it was the cat.

  12. Dianne says:

    OH !!! I love Bludoodles !!

  13. Dianne says:

    Give this doggie 2 or 3 more colors and leave it alone for an hour……..TIE DYE !!

  14. Jimbeaux says:

    Ohnoes! Beware the evil pen siren! *hee!*

  15. Maybe he just went to vote in Iraq?

  16. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    blue is his color.

  17. skippymom says:

    Oh no! He’s going to lick his paws and be poisoned! How could his cruel and irresponsible owners pick up the camera to take a picture instead of rushing him to the tub to wash off the ink? This isn’t cute, this is ANIMAL ABUSE!!!

  18. cheesybird says:

    Hee! I love that there’s now a “naughtiness” tag.

  19. claudemarie says:

    I disagree, I believe this poodley dog LIKES getting dyed, and when his human pals said NO WAY, he found his own way to colour himself fancy 😉

  20. skippymom says:

    In other news, just checked and the dead hamster discussion is still going on! Is that the longest-running thread ever?

  21. Deja Vu! Where have I seen this before? Still one of the funniest ever. I see that the owners have light beige carpeting too, oh dear!

  22. AuntieMame says:

    I wind up with ink all over me every tax season, too, Dex. *sigh*

  23. (How do you guys get the Qte pictures next to your names? )

  24. Kristabelle says:

    Didn’t you mean Deja Doodle? :p

    See the heeeent of blue ink on his muzzle? Why is it the blue pens taste the BEST??

    Our Wheaten did a very similar thing when he was a young ‘un. That was before we were wise to the benefits of crating!

  25. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    Poodilicus maximus: I can at this time neither confirm nor deny that a writing implement, which may or may not have been a pen, was in any way stolen from a purse — which, in an act of grievous negligence I might add, may have been left on a kitchen chair at chin height — chewed on (first with the big back teeth to soften it up and then with the little nibbly teeth at the front), and finally, attempted to have been disposed of with the strategic digging of a hole next to the shed in the backyard.

    Please direct any questions to my attorneys at Dewey, Cheetham & Howe.

    Ooh, is that a Bic? I love Bic. Are you gonna eat that?

  26. This MUST be his leetle brothur:




  27. He looks so inocent you cant ground those puppy eyes lol
    white dogs always get in troubles lol

  28. “It’s a clue! A clue!”

  29. chanpon says:

    What is it with white doggies and colored pens/markers? It’s like white shirts and tomato sauce…an unexplained, mysterious attraction.

  30. Von Zeppelin says:

    Argyle Donkeypants–Further statement from Poodilicus maximus: Mistakes were made. If anyone was disturbed or offended by the alleged destruction of the blue pen, assuming that such destruction actually took place, without admitting wrongdoing, those persons or animals have my deepest sympathy and best wishes. We need to move on and not dwell on past mistakes, if there were any. This will be my last word on this matter, which is still under investigation.

    (Oooh! A red Sharpie marker, right over there by the white sofa! That looks interesting. . . )

  31. Bad dog, you are a very naughty…don’t give me that innocent look, I am very angry with you! Don’t you dare roll over and act all cute! You’re not getting out of trouble that easily this time, mister! I mean it, I…I…oh, heck, who’s a good dog? That’s right, you are! Here’s a treat!

  32. River Tam says:

    Oh no, it’s the Hands of Blue!

    The hands go everywhere.
    Two by two, hands of blue.

  33. Starlinguk says:

    I’m arresting Von Zeppelin and Argyle Donkeypants for aiding and apenting.

  34. Totally reminds me of my neice. (Well, the situation, not the actual dog… although some comparisons could be made… curly hair.. but I digress). My sister expressly told my niece to stay out of her office, no touchie office. One day, Annie was VERY quiet. We wandered downstairs to find the 4 year old in the rec room, right outside the office. Covered in stamps (yes, like she was about to mail herself to Peru or something, there was that many stamps).
    Mom: ‘Annie, were you in my office?’
    Annie: ‘Nope, I just sittin here in this room, I stay out of office’.
    Mom: ‘Are you sure’?
    Annie: ‘Yep’.
    Mom picks Annie up and takes her into the bathroom to look at herself in the mirror. Annie sees stamps all over and says.. and I quote.. ‘What in the world happened to me???’

    Annie is now 12, and still denies that she was ever in the office.

  35. T.U.M. says:

    Been there. Yes, I was the not-so-proud auntie of the rare Blue-Pawed, Blue-Mouthed Beagle, on the phone to Bic customer service to make sure the ink was safe for puppeh tummehs.

  36. @ golden: loved the story on Annie… too funny!
    Argyle Donkeypants and Von Zep… you guys are totally redonk!! I laughed till my dog came to see if I was OK. Apparently, no laughing allowed unless pre-puppy-approved. Oh, and he says to tell you all, that he prefers pencils, the wooden ones over the plastic “clik’ type, but defintitely pencils.

  37. Plaid-shirt Pyrate says:

    golden — if you had gotten video of that incident with Annie, you could have made a million bucks on America’s Funniest Home Video.

    Heck, you could have gotten 20 bucks from me, just for the sheer entertainment value.

  38. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    It has come to my attention that certain malicious individuals are perpetuating the insidious rumor that I was somehow complicit in the alleged theft and mutilation-by-mastication of the blue pen — which may or may not have occurred and is still under investigation by authorities. I reiterate my sympathy and best wishes — which in no way constitutes an admission of guilt, or even knowledge that anything has even happened — to the family of the unfortunate white carpet. Furthermore, I wish to stress that any appearance of guilt in this photograph is fictitious, and any resemblance to real pen-eating menaces is purely coincidental.

    (Plus I was willing to bet my last Milk Bone it would taste like blueberries, and it SO didn’t.)

  39. berthaservant says:

    lol Argyle! Skippymom — iirc the longest debate was about the (in my opinion) cute girl with a little puppy and I think it ran to 1000+ comments (Pasickie may hold the record).

    Meanwhile, I offer this:

    Blue is the color of my puppeh’s paws
    In the morning when we rise
    In the morning when we rise
    That’s the time
    That’s the time
    I love him best…..

  40. Von Zeppelin says:

    I can only express my sadness that some would leap to the conclusion that I was in some way involved in the alleged “pen incident,” basing their opinions on the apparent blueness of my paws. This alleged discoloration is caused by the angle of the light in the photographs. Also, there have been many well-documented cases of spontaneous blueness in curly-coated white dogs. Also, it was photoshopped. Anyway, that was another dog altogether. I was out of town that day.

    This will be my absolutely last comment on this matter. I would like to thank my family and constituents for their support. (Dog leaves podium as reporters shout questions)

  41. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    @Von Zep, know of any politicians in need of speechwriters?

  42. Von Zeppelin says:

    Argyle, I don’t know how they’re managing without us.

  43. krista says:

    This looks strangely familiar

  44. Grover, the early years.

  45. That’s awesome, Wendy. Lol!

    How can you stay mad at him indeed! Those eye alone. ;D

  46. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    We’ll call it “Pengate.”

  47. graham cifra says:

    This is definitely a dupe from previous Cute Overload, but I can’t seem to find the original so it’s all good. Blue is beautiful!

  48. Graham, we’ve run a small white dog who graphically subdued a tube of red lip gloss; is that the one you’re thinking of?

  49. jenjen says:

    Thank you @skippymom for saying what had to be said. The height of irresponsibility indeed. People who own any kind of pens or markers just shouldn’t be allowed to have pets. And I am shocked at CO for perpetuating this shameful episode. Shocked.

  50. Your winnings, sir…

  51. The look on the second image is soooo, “It wasn’t me!”

  52. I now have to make the obvious Arrested Development “I blue myself” joke …

  53. The pen is blue!!!! Looks like the dog realize he can’t lie.

  54. Squinty says:

    Am I going crazy, or is this a repeat?

  55. Squinty, I think… well, see my comment above.

  56. JohnnieCanuck says:

    Well, it took a while but I knew I’d seen it here before.


    Still as funny as the last time.
