Cute Overload :D
[Sliiiiiiiiiides closer to bowl]
[Sniff + Shifty Eyes]
I’m guessing Snailio Iglesias is gonna win this one, Rich.
Sheeeyooot, one kibble would be a lifetime’s worth of meals to this guy! :-)
If that dog sneezes, Snailio is a goner!!
“Stand aside, dog, or you will TASTE THE POWER OF MY WRATH!!” (Waves eyestalks in a menacing fashion)
Is that a snalio, or did that doggeh just sneeze? heheh
I hope that curiosity won’t kill the snail.
That’s a pretty darned cute picture, by the way.
sometimes slugs get into my guinea pig food bin and they end up all hard and dead because of the salts :-|
ew! I think he’s got hair stuck on his little bum!
bettah watch out snailio, that dawg could snorf you right up!
Tiny snail could fit in the dog’s nostril.
but if they do that ‘lady and the tramp’ thing w/ the kibble then i don’t think it’s gonna end well
That’s a pretty cute dog nose.
No, I can’t spare one kibble. And stop calling me Shirley.
Hmmmm, my goggie would eat the snail and ask questions later.
*plotting on how to slime the pup’s nosicle*
I’m nought but lowly snail, up at 5am, traveled 42 hours this day, from faraway County Waterbowl, lick‘d tha road clean wi‘ me tongue, wit‘ nought but salt and cold gravel for’s to eat, …
Snailio’s just grabbing some hairio as a tailio.
@Pyrit: But we were ‘appy in those days, we were.
Argyle! We were lucky!
I hope they rescued that snail before the dog accidentally snorfed it up. Poor thing’s staring death in the face! Rescue the silly snailio!
Amazing pic, i wish i was that good taking pics
pyrit/Argyle–‘ard it were, carryin’ all me worldly goods, even me ‘ouse, around everywhere. It’d be enough to break me backbone, if I ‘ad one.
That’s another thing–in those days, we couldn’t even afford backbones. . .
Hmmmm, my doggie likes a little cottage cheese on her kibble, but I never thought of escargot!
Oh, and snailio is all singin’ “Me … and my shaaaaaa-dow ….” Would he be slimin’ down the avenue?
i like the picture of the doggeh’s snoot better.
Holy macro, Batman!
I want to stroke that doggy nose. It looks all fuzzeh.
Beware Snailio! Tis precarious ground!
Snailio is a stalker! Run, Mighty Dog, run! The puparazzi’s after you!
I call dachshund schnozzle.
sorry snail we dont have any snail kibble
Snailio thinks mebbe the bowl is full of his relatives…
Aw, man! You slimed my kibble!
Don’t breathe Mr Pupster… either direction would be catastrophic for poor ole Snalio!
“To all the snails I’ve loffed befoooooore . . .”
There is a place where the food bowl ends
And before the kibble begins,
And there the dog nose is soft and wet,
And there the camera flash is bright,
And there the snailio rests from his slide,
To cool in the Purina wind.
Let us leave this place where the tile is cold,
And the dark grout winds and bends.
Past the pits where the kitteh flowers grow
We shall slide with a slide that is measured and slow,
And watch where the light brown kibbles go
To the place where the food bowl ends.
Yes we’ll slide with a slide that is measured and slow,
And we’ll go where the light brown kibbles go,
For the eyestalks, they mark, and the eyestalks, they know
The place where the food bowl ends.
Ahn. *head tilt*
Love the “food bowl ends” poem!
The snailio’s shell kind of looks like a piece of kibble. What if the dog … no, it’s too horrible to imagine.
Who knew snails could be cute?
First off…nom nom nom
Second…I’m on CO on my new iPhone
So many wonderful comments…Pyrit, Von Zep, Argyle, Mary Wimpey, you’ve all made my day, right along with this teeny snailio…:-) Thank you!
@Von Zep, Pyrit: Oh, in my family, we LONGED for a house ta carry on our backs. We only ‘ad a ‘ole in the dirt, covered wiv a piece a’ tarpaulin.
Oh, and Mary Wimpey? Your. Poem. Rocks. Very Shel Silverstein-esque.
Well if Snailio Inglesias doesn’t deserve a Pocket Pet tag, then nobody does…
Good call, Birdcage. I can see dachshund there.
Pyrit, Donkeypants, Von Zep, and Mary Wimpey? Thanks to all for the smiles. Yay!
Add another vote for the Pocket Pet tag! :)
Pyrit, Argyle, Von Zeppelin, and Mary Wimpey–Thanks for all the thought
and creativity that made this one of the best threads ever…
I used to be “Duck,” *O0<, but the nickname was taken…Now I’m your
Thank you very moishe ^^;;
It was Shell Snailverstein :D
It looks like it’s saying:
“Can i have some too?”
“Aww, come on. It won’t hurt to share!”
Argyle, at least you had a tarpaulin! LUXURY! We always wanted a tarpaulin, but ‘ad to be content wi’ the stars as our covers…
(Hmmm I wonder if I retain my non-specialized spelling, will I also retain my avatar? Let’s see….)
(apparently not…) (sigh)
Is “tiny/big” a rule of cuteness? I don’t feel like looking it up and/or explaining what I mean.
Thanks to CO, now whenever I see a snailio I just wanna take a peekture of it.
Patito — sort of. ;)
It’s absolutely cute! hehehe.. did you put that snail there?
I hope the dog isnt French.
A|s a gardener and vegetable grower,that snail would not be long for this world. I know the giant king of the snails and slugs will come and take me in my sleep, but they’re not having my plants.
I see German Shepherd snout, really… I don’t think the germans are much into escargot!
Mary Wimpey, excellent poem – Shel Snailverstein for the win!!! :)
Weren’t we just having a discussion about pets having pets? Did that snail realize just how big that puppy was going to get when he asked for him?
Just for the record, there is a Purina plant just off the highway on our route to and from Mom and Dad’s house, and I can attest that the Purina wind is rather vile. Just so you know. :)
What snail? ;-)
We all have our own funnybones that get tickled, right? For some reason, Snailio Iglesias cracks me up EVERY time.
I call Ridgeback nose!
He is soo Cute….. ;D
