You Gonna Eat That?

[Sliiiiiiiiiides closer to bowl]

[Sniff + Shifty Eyes]




I’m guessing Snailio Iglesias is gonna win this one, Rich.



  1. Sheeeyooot, one kibble would be a lifetime’s worth of meals to this guy! 🙂

  2. If that dog sneezes, Snailio is a goner!!

  3. Von Zeppelin says:

    “Stand aside, dog, or you will TASTE THE POWER OF MY WRATH!!” (Waves eyestalks in a menacing fashion)

  4. superboymom says:

    Is that a snalio, or did that doggeh just sneeze? heheh

  5. Estlin says:

    I hope that curiosity won’t kill the snail.

    That’s a pretty darned cute picture, by the way.

  6. Janeyferr says:

    sometimes slugs get into my guinea pig food bin and they end up all hard and dead because of the salts 😐

  7. Paunchie says:

    ew! I think he’s got hair stuck on his little bum!

    bettah watch out snailio, that dawg could snorf you right up!

  8. Tiny snail could fit in the dog’s nostril.

    Oh, and…EHHNNNNN

  9. berthaservant says:



    but if they do that ‘lady and the tramp’ thing w/ the kibble then i don’t think it’s gonna end well

  10. That’s a pretty cute dog nose.

  11. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    No, I can’t spare one kibble. And stop calling me Shirley.

  12. shannomo says:

    Hmmmm, my goggie would eat the snail and ask questions later.

  13. chanpon says:

    *plotting on how to slime the pup’s nosicle*

  14. 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, …

  15. Samantha says:

    Snailio’s just grabbing some hairio as a tailio.

  16. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    @Pyrit: But we were ‘appy in those days, we were.

  17. Argyle! We were lucky!

  18. chelonianmobile says:

    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!

  19. Jenni S says:


  20. Illise says:

    Amazing pic, i wish i was that good taking pics

  21. Von Zeppelin says:

    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. . .

  22. Camille says:

    Hmmmm, my doggie likes a little cottage cheese on her kibble, but I never thought of escargot!

  23. Jakepets says:

    Oh, and snailio is all singin’ “Me … and my shaaaaaa-dow ….” Would he be slimin’ down the avenue?

  24. i like the picture of the doggeh’s snoot better.

  25. Holy macro, Batman!

  26. I want to stroke that doggy nose. It looks all fuzzeh.
    Beware Snailio! Tis precarious ground!

  27. Snailio is a stalker! Run, Mighty Dog, run! The puparazzi’s after you!

  28. Birdcage says:

    I call dachshund schnozzle.

  29. dawgpup93 says:

    sorry snail we dont have any snail kibble

  30. charliewabba says:

    Snailio thinks mebbe the bowl is full of his relatives…

  31. ariesgirl says:

    Aw, man! You slimed my kibble!

  32. Don’t breathe Mr Pupster… either direction would be catastrophic for poor ole Snalio!

  33. “To all the snails I’ve loffed befoooooore . . .”

  34. 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*

  35. ☼Rainbowstar☼ says:

    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?

  36. Coffeecup says:

    First off…nom nom nom
    Second…I’m on CO on my new iPhone

  37. kibblenibble says:

    So many wonderful comments…Pyrit, Von Zep, Argyle, Mary Wimpey, you’ve all made my day, right along with this teeny snailio…:-) Thank you!

  38. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    @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.

  39. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    Oh, and Mary Wimpey? Your. Poem. Rocks. Very Shel Silverstein-esque.

  40. Well if Snailio Inglesias doesn’t deserve a Pocket Pet tag, then nobody does…

  41. soxfan413 says:

    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! 🙂

  42. puddlepeppers says:

    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
    friend, “Puddlepeppers”.

  43. @ kibblenibble/soxfan413/puddlepeppers

    Thank you very moishe ^^;;

    @ Argyle

    It was Shell Snailverstein 😀

  44. It looks like it’s saying:

    “Can i have some too?”
    “Aww, come on. It won’t hurt to share!”

  45. SoCalSis says:

    Argyle, at least you had a tarpaulin! LUXURY! We always wanted a tarpaulin, but ‘ad to be content wi’ the stars as our covers…

  46. socalsis says:

    (Hmmm I wonder if I retain my non-specialized spelling, will I also retain my avatar? Let’s see….)

  47. socalsis says:

    (apparently not…) (sigh)

  48. Is “tiny/big” a rule of cuteness? I don’t feel like looking it up and/or explaining what I mean.

  49. Thanks to CO, now whenever I see a snailio I just wanna take a peekture of it.

  50. Patito — sort of. 😉

  51. It’s absolutely cute! hehehe.. did you put that snail there?

  52. I hope the dog isnt French.

  53. hon glad says:

    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.

  54. Kristabelle says:

    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!!! 🙂

  55. Katrina says:

    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?

  56. AuntieMame says:

    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. 🙂

  57. Lerrinus says:


    What snail? 😉

  58. We all have our own funnybones that get tickled, right? For some reason, Snailio Iglesias cracks me up EVERY time.

  59. I call Ridgeback nose!

  60. He is soo Cute….. ;D
