  10. CoconutCheez says:

  12. Undertoad says:

    Boston Terrier

  13. We have a Boston Terrier in our meet-up group named rabbit. It fits exceedingly well.

    And when they get growed up, like my 3.5 yr old Boston Bunny they look like this:

  14. Oops. Perhaps I mean this:

  15. I don’t think he looks disapproving enough to be a bunny.

  16. Heather, that’s stinkin’ cute.

  17. Too… much… … cute… *dies*

  18. And when they get growed up and won’t get off the bed so you can make it, they’ll even sit like bunnies so they look like they have bunny tocks…

    And then they give you another mad look because you told them to get off the bed:

    That’s Boston Bunnies for ya…

  19. Cambridge_Rat_Mom says:

    I agree with Meaghan–not disapproving enough to be a bunny.

  20. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Heather:
    did you advise your little 4-legged companion to pose w/ paw in adorable pose??? ‘cuz it WORKED ~~~!!!!!

  21. Nancy (orig) says:

    definate pup – pensive expression. ‘Twer a bun, the expression would be disapproval. Just my opinion tho.

  22. My husband an I always call them Boston Cream Terriers.

  23. I did not advise her to do that. She is mad because I told her to get off the bed so I could make it. This is Boston Terrier pouting mode.

    **She likes giving mad looks. It’s like a vocation to her. If I really make her mad she just turns her head like she’s incognito. I think she might hate me sometimes. But, for some reasons he always eats her food and sleeps in my bed. I don’t get it…

  24. wannadance says:


  25. I think, it’s a punny, aha

    [*snork* – Ed.]

  26. Leslie (NTA) says:

    Well, Heather, it’ll probaby make her pout even more effectively, if you tell her that the pic you got, from her pouting, is pheNOMenal !! 😉

  27. what a cute bunny look-a-like.

  28. tiny snout and big ears – always a winning combo.
    Very cute dog.

  29. Labramama says:

    Only way to know for sure: check the ‘tocks.

  30. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    Boston Cream terrier…

  31. I agree with Labramama… show us the ‘tocks!

  32. I posted a pic of the tocks— awaiting moderation so it may or may not get posted.
    She has cute tocks and her tail is exactly like a cotton ball. Like a buppy or punny or…you get the picture.

  33. What about… puppy AND bunny?

    Or this guy?

    Or this bunny-wannabe? Poseur.

  34. its a horse

  35. What’s in a name? Snorg-alicious is snorg-alicious in my book.

  36. @Heather

    Your Boston is very cute. A teenager? Because she giving major attitude and a bit of side-eye in that picture.

  37. kibblenibble says:

    Whatever it is, I see an *amazing* axis of snorgling! I’m goin’ in…..

  38. we used to have a squirrel friend in our backyard with such big ears we called him Squabbit.

  39. Oh. Oh. The velvety chubulence of the Boston Cream Terrier! The axis of snorgle displayed! I actually whimpered when this scrolled up.

  40. doomchild says:

    Can I call a friend? Or even ask the audience?

    Heather, thanks for the second photo.. my brain just melted..

  41. I thought for a nanosecond that his pointy chest hair was an arm nub! Phew.

  42. It’s a Dutch puppy…uh a Boston rabbit…umm oh I don’t know, the cuteness has got me all mixed up!

  43. You know, I looked at this and thought, “It’s a dog, for pete’s sake.” My four-year-old daughter, who is sitting on my lap, said, “Is that a puppy or a rabbit?” I should look through her eyes more often, apparently!

  44. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ CR: 1st photo: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!

    @ Coraline: LOL !!!!! (Actually, guffaw’d OL !! )

  45. Andi from NC says:

    There is not enough disapproval in the pout for this to be a bunny – I would only rate 2 buns on the scale…

    Such a cutie and I agree with kibblenibble that the axis of snorgling is downright irresistable!

  46. This is why the Boston Terrier is my favorite dog breed ever!!!

  47. It’s a cute, widdle puppy! 😀

  48. There’s a new game we like to play, you see
    A game with added reality
    You treat me like a dog (!), get me down on my knees
    We call it: Puppy or Bunny

  49. Hila, that gives me an idea, but not for this post; I’m gonna have to save it. But thanks in advance. 😉

    Hey Theo —

    BTW yesterday I was bored & browsing CO archives ….You’ve been BUSTED!!
    …… I found out, that you speak “Swedish Chef” …..

    [Sure, I speak Swedish. But how am I “busted?” Exactly what do I need to categorically deny? – Ed.]


  52. I think the mother of this dog/bunny needs to explain a lot lol

  53. @Leslie (NTA), and hooo doozn’t? Haf zum off de chicky-in-a-basssket.

  54. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Theresa:
    I mooost admit tha’ — althooooo I luuuuv me som Swedish-uh cheffah, I musta mist tha klasses altho’ I can spreche me sum Franshie, purt’ gouda …

  55. Peanut's mama says:


  56. muttluver says:

    Ahn!!!! Babyluv! Cutest Boston I’ve EVER seen.

  57. Oh, there ain’t nothin’ cuter
    Than a black ‘n’ white terrier
    In the mooooooornin….

    (Okay, so it’s afternoon.)

    Hubby told me that when he and his ex-wife first got married, they had a rabbit and a cat. The cat was named Rabbit. The rabbit was named Cat. And they would take turns chasing each other around the apartment. Hubby was telling me this story because he became momentarily convinced that we needed to buy Philo a bunneh to play with. That madness passed (really, we do have enough critters).

  58. Kirsten D. says:

    Hee! I have a thing for Boston Terriers (probably because they’re my school’s mascot!) and this one is too freakin’ adorable. Bunnular Bosteen. ❤

  59. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Noelegy:

    1) We’re assuming that you’re medically all-better since you’re back & posting stories in sentences & paragraphs??
    2) How cool to cross-pollinate names/ species.
    3) Was the (rabbit named) Cat, named after Cat in “Breakfast/ Tiffany’s” film?

  60. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Theo:
    (oh, good — I thought you weren’t answering b/c I’d broken some Absolute ‘Net Policy w/ my comment not related to buns/ pups)

    umm– the Answ [to: “What am I supp. to categorically deny?” ] is that I figured any ‘Mericun Male [other than Kermit, that is] would prefer to conceal, minimize or categorically deny, that you find the Swedish Chef’s cooking show to be informative & enjoyable?

  61. A master of disguise, indeed!

  62. Leslie: I’m really good at typing one-handed. 🙂 (Right hand is sprained, in an incident that had nothing to do with my tooth woes of earlier) I don’t know the origin of the Cat/Rabbit naming convention, and Hubby doesn’t remember, just that they thought it was funny.


    (with extra bork-su)

  64. Cambridge_Rat_Mom says:

    What is ‘speaking “Swedish Chef?'” I am sooo curious? Where can I learn of this language? All I speak is English, ein kleines bischen Deutsch, cat, horse and rat. Did Julia Child/Meryl Streep speak “Swedish Chef?”

    [Have you ever gone to Google and clicked the “Preferences” link? – Ed.]

  65. @ Hila: Um… is that game SFW? ‘Cause, uh… We might need a different website.

    Okay, everyone, I count at least four axises (axii?) of snorgling. Including the traditional neck one. How many can anyone else spot?

  66. Von Zeppelin says:

    Cambridge Rat Mom–The Swedish Chef was one of the great Muppet characters of old. He was known for the clarity with which he gave cooking instructions:

    Just saw “Julie and Julia” a couple of days ago. Julia/Meryl did not speak true “Swedish Chef,” but Julia’s early French lessons may have sounded a little like it to her teacher.

    Bork bork bork.

  67. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Theo: you, sir, are a gentleman of courage. Thank you for responding with FOUR eloquent exhibits of SwedishCheffery !!!! Bork bork bork or …in my own effort at a Mock Lingo (Mock-Japonaise):

    “A–so, deska” !! .

    However: THEY’ve put BORK BORK BORK in the lingo preferences, of GOOGLE?????????? We are …..positively befuddled !!! (& amused).

    @ Noelegy: like, ohmigod, like, let us know when your recovery from ALL medical/ dental ailments have ENTIRELY resolved. I’m beginning to see that little grey stormcloud from the little fellow in the Peanuts cartoon, over your head !!!! Where’s the white picket fence around your yard/life???? poor thing !!!!!
    (“bork bork bork”.)

  68. its a buppy!! YAAAY! 🙂 *huggles*

  69. And Leslie, let’s not forget the possibility of my getting fired when I return to work tomorrow. Whee! But thank you for your kind thoughts.

  70. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Noelegy: Repeat after me:

    (Repeat as necessary, until the white picket fence materializes !!! )

  71. @Theo — Thanks for showing us the ways of Bork-su. You clearly are The Obscure Information Master with that Google link. I checked it out and in addition to bork, bork, bork, it also gives you the choice of receiving your Google info in “Elmer Fudd.” I wonder if those wacky google guys just slipped that in there to see if anyone would notice…pretty amusing.

    [Yep… there’s Bork, Fudd, Hacker; but really the biggest joke is probably Esperanto – Ed.]

  72. (oops! I meant “Bork-Fu”, not su…)*sigh*

  73. victoreia says:

    @Theo: How many speakers of Esperanto are there in the world? (And how much web-surfing do they do?)

    FYI, you can also get your Google results in Hawaiian (yes, it’s still a living language) and Klingon! Annnnnnnd, I just found Pirate on the language list…

  74. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Victoreia:
    About #/ speakers/ Esperanto…I just did a quick/ research effort… Evidently determining an answer to that, is quite a little vortex o’ controversy …without digging quite deeply, I wasn’t able to find a quicklink with an estimate.
    Meantime: I’m pleasantly tickled with the whole Elmer Fudd thing: I gotta try THAT one out !!!

  75. its a cute dog.

  76. Leslie (NTA) says:

    Aaaaaaand to conclude this whole set of facts & questions: YES, the Google search page WILL set itself up as an Ewmew Fudd seawchpage after you choose E. Fudd in the Pwefewences dropdown !!!!!!

    Amazing but Twue.

  77. What, no preference for Pig Latin? On behalf of educated iggie-pays everywhere, I protest.

  78. Doesn’t the Swedish Chef say “Morp Morp Morp at the end? That’s how I hear it, anyway.

  79. OMG Teho! I’m cracking up after changing my preferences to Bork, bork, bork! 😆 I bet the peeps at work are wondering what’s wrong with me because I can’t stop giggling!

  80. Looks bunular, but I bet it is presh doggie, I want one of those!!!!!!

  81. VERY adorable! Love your bun-pup’s expression: “I wonder if I should eat a rawhide today or just nibble some clover.”

    We should get your bun-dog and my bun-dog (cuteoverloadshares.snapfish.com/snapfish for those wishing to see a fuzzier bun-dog) together for ear-to-head-and-body-ration measuring and general chatting (us, not the bun-dogs). I’ll upload some better bun-dog pictures soon. You have a very cute bun-pup, enjoy!

  82. Ooops, ~ratio measuring, not ration. I’m pretty sure even the Swedish chef contingent wouldn’t say ration instead of ratio…. 8o

  83. hmmm…….puppy or bunny i got it a punny, what does it eat?

  84. omg soooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love bostin terriers

  85. PUPPYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!! Weeeeeeeeeee Bostons are the sweetest looking pups in the world…I would know, I am a proud owner of one heehehe!! 😀

  86. Puppy
