Guess the Breed

And the winner is… Muffy! Basset Hound! Congratulations! Muffy will be receiving a free wall and desk calendar for her correct answer. I think the schnozzle gave it away.

This little morsel is so small and delectabuhl.

What will he grow up to be? A collie? A German Shepherd? A Chihuahua? A Free Cute Overload 2010 calendar to the first correct answer in the comments!

  116. Oh! Clumber Spaniel! Don’t they go by Cumberland though?

  117. English Pointer.

  118. American Stafford Terrier

  119. *Pulling random breed out of her rear* I’m gonna go with keeshond, because I have no idea. All I can think, though, is OMG FLESHY EAR-FLAPS!!

  120. Well I’m too late to make a guess but I would really like to know what it is and who won!

  121. Bull Terrier / Cocker Spaniel mix

  122. brittany spaniel

  123. I can’t believe it. It’s spelled German shepherd (HERD as in herding dog).

  124. Maine coon.

    Or Seal-point Siamese.

  125. Michael Claymore says:

    It’s a Sea Lion.

  126. has anyone said husky yet? i’m sayin’ husky. *hope*

  127. A basset hound I say!

  128. bulldog. (this guess is based on his nosicle)

  129. a potato?

  130. Great pyrenees

  131. Italian Spinone!

  132. A potato

  133. BabyOpossum says:


  134. I think it’s a Saint Bernard.

  135. Queen of Dork says:

    A Capybara? Although potato could be right…

  136. A border collie??

  137. Von Zeppelin says:

    A rare elephant seal with floppy ears.

  138. Hmm. Most of the breeds I would have guessed have been guessed already and no one has said “that’s it!” So I’ll try something else. A mastiff?

  139. @ NTMTOM

    A newt!
    (It got better.)

  140. a lab?

  141. Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

  142. Resriechan says:

    I think that it’s a Clydesdale/ Percheron/ Apaloosa mix.

    “Didn’t catch on, too quickly”

  143. Resriechan says:

    (and I like QoD’s suggestion. But then, I almost ALWAYS do like her suggestions)

  144. Has Boxer been guessed? That’s my guess, anyway. Boxer or pit bull, and pibble I know has been guessed.

  145. English bull terrier?

  146. mary beth says:

    cocker spaniel?

  147. Queen of Dork says:

    Resriechan: I think you might be onto something with the Clysedale part.

  148. My gut reaction is Corgi. Espesh because of the coloration. Not to mention the darkening on the edge of the ears, which LOOKS to indicate heavy cartilage indicative of a “standing-eared” breed like a Corgi. Do I get any points for exposition? ;)

  149. clumber spaniel

  150. basset hound

  151. Dogo Argentino!


  153. kibblenibble says:

    a nomlet

    (which would go nicely with the potato, for breakfast)

  154. Queen of Dork says:

    Wow Aquila! I didn’t know about the whole cartilage, standing ear theory! Cool! It’s like you’re a dog breed detective. :)

  155. justabrat says:


  156. These are all good guesses. But clearly it is a Bavarian Snorgling Snoot Hound. The end.

  157. A brittany spaniel!!

  158. justabrat says:

    I’m thinking it could also be a Shiba Inu … ?

  159. Newly born Pit Bull Terrier. The schnozz gives it away.

  160. Queen of Dork says:

    I think I’ll have a potato nomlet for dinner.

  161. Beagle.

  162. Resriechan says:

    How about, we just decide on the Majority Rule here?
    By which, it looks that Potato is the Winning Candidate.

    Vanna, please present the Calendar to the Winner.

    (My, Vanna, THAT is surely a lovely gown tonight !!!)

  163. Mrs. Lackey says:

    I haf eet.
    it is a baby schnozz on legs, and it will grow up to be a GIANT schnozz on legs.

  164. Labadoodle!

  165. Portuguese Podengo? (Yes that’s a real breed, look it up)

  166. Resriechan says:

    (izzit too late, to submit the breed “Snugglebunny”????)

  167. Heather L. says:

    English Bull Dog

  168. Saint Bernard?

  169. Von Zeppelin says:

    In the spirit of Aquila’s ear cartilage examination, I will rescind my previous guess and go all forensic on this puppy. I suggest that the wrinkles along the sagittal midline of the cranium presage large amounts of loose skin in the adult form. So I’m joining the basset hound crowd. (Squeezes in among large group of flappy, wrinkly dogs)

  170. No earthly idea what breed it is, but I do know puplet nose needs to be beeped!


    Beep beep! (Kiss) Beep!

  171. Resriechan says:

    @ VZ: (Please note: while the following is stated in a — hopefully– humorous MANNER…..’tis honest appreciation not sarcasm ….Fu real, man).

    like, wow, man, I’m, like, TO-tally floored by your like, knowledge of stuff.
    Really. wow.


    (or Chong; I’m not sure. Wait, let’s check my ID card….)

  172. Queen of Dork says:

    Aquila: If you’re not of the uterin/fallopius persuasion please forgive the following:

    Ed: I suggest Von Zep and Aquila win the prize for being the Nancy Drew/Hardy Boy of dog breed detection.

  173. OMG! all first guess breeds taken! As I went Cocker Spaniel – no -has to be a hound dog like a beagle.

    daschaund? That’s a long little body – not that I’ve seen any that colour!



    Coonhound! I’ll go with that, don’t care about google saying it’s not AKC registered.

  174. Basset Hound! A Lemon-flavored basset!

  175. I say it is going to be a Collie!

  176. ShiTzu it looks like our puppies

  177. Blue heeler. Just not very blue yet. But I’d nom him just the same.

  178. Selphie van der Boffin says:

    I would guess Beagle, but that;s already guess so my official guess will be…..greyhound…?

  179. Selphie van der Boffin says:

    * that’s *guessed

  180. Keely Sayers says:

    I think it’s a miniature bull terrier… like the target mascot.

  181. A Saint Bernard.

  182. Visionsmyth says:

    Did anybody guess Borzoi yet? Too many entries, too little time!

  183. Visionsmyth says:

    Looks SOOO like my precios Borzoi/Russian Wolfhound when she was just barely borned and hadn’t grown the long schnozz and long legs yet.

  184. Queen of Dork says:

    QoD, CSI Agent here. After further examintation of exhibit A, (under a microscope even) it has been definitively determined by the leathery looking ear cartilage co-mingled with the whisker pores on the nosicle region, this creature is…..

    A babeh otter.

  185. SusaninMI says:

    TELLLLLL US ALREADYYYYYYY!!! I say Basset, but I’m partial as they are the cutest dogs in the world, and this is one cute puppeh!!

  186. Bull terrier!

  187. Who cares?? He’s delicious-looking and bite sized, so I’m gonna nom him. Pass the butter!

  188. looks like a clumber spaniel

  189. A wee Chihuahua?

  190. Or! A little Cocker Spaniel??

  191. I’m going to go with New, as in:
    “oh, s’cuse me, I’m new here”

  192. Catherine says:

    I think he looks like an absolutely adorable mutt! The best ones.

  193. it’s a catdog (all alone in the world) honestly if you look at his tocks you will find a squishy kitty face.

  194. Queen of Dork says:

    *fingers crossed,eyes squished shut* I hope I win, I hope I win. Otter. It’s an otter.

  195. Peanut! It’s a peanut!!

  196. Queen of Dork says:

    Salted in the shell!

  197. I want to say it looks like a beagle or basset hound.

  198. Some kind of terrier…. Jack Russell maybe?

  199. Looks like a tiny clumber spaniel to me. Or maybe a fuzzy potato.

  200. AuntieMame says:

    A caramel sundae with a cherry on top!

  201. it’s definitely some kind of cartoon dog… maybe a great dane like the great scooby doo or a umm mutt like mutley?

  202. Catalburun

  203. Queen of Dork says:

    It’s for sure an otter. It will grow up to have whiskers, lay on its back in the water, and crack open shellfish with its shellfish-cracking-open-tool on its belly.

  204. Pupsicle!

  205. kibblenibble says:

    Lookit that peenk leetle snoot! Must kees eet! *mwah*

    *tiptoes away with bebeh nomlet in pocket*

  206. Lhaso apso

  207. Lemon Beagle. :)

  208. Queen of Dork says:


  209. Brittany

  210. basset hound

  211. Queen of Dork says:

    Heating instructions: Heat bebeh nomlet in microwave for…oh. better not go there.

  212. mixbreed!

  213. BUll terrier. you can tell cuz of the face =3 i <333 those dogs ^__^ oh and btw, we have the 2k10 calanders at my work already ^___^

  214. tristabelle says:

    that’s a prosh little nugget of a cocker spaniel if I ever saw one!!

  215. Dutch Lop.

    Killer rabbit of Caerbannog, ppl. Hints and all.

  216. photogirl says:

    it’s a melting blob of neapolitan ice cream.
    i can see, chocolate, vanilla AND strawberry!

    does this mean, nobody’s got it right yet?
    how can that be??

  217. Basset Hound!! Awwww-nerable regardless….


  218. Queen of Dork says:

    Clearly, it’s an otter.

  219. Resriechan says:

    (One by one, entire crowd slowly begins to head over to the bonfire, beside the junkyard, to roast s’mores.)

  220. I vote miniature dachshund! Mine had a wrinkly schnozzle when she was teeny tiny

  221. Dachshund!?

  222. Queen of Dork says:

    Maybe I should just buy the calendar. I’ve always wanted one…

  223. He’s a Boxer Baby !

  224. No, no, no. It’s a lump of butter. You can tell by the pixals. Yummy butter, mind you, but butter.

    [Butter is BY DEFINITION yummy. - Ed.]

  225. French Brittany pointer..

  226. Queen of Dork says:

    Lexy: Scooby was a Great Dane?!

  227. I bet they’re not going to tell us for, like a month and a half, just to mess with our heads. ;)

  228. American Brittany pointer?

  229. Ok, ok… seriously, I know nothing (well very little) about dog breeds, but the first thing I thought of was Cavalier King Charles.

  230. Obviously this a Scottish breed, the “Highland Futt-Bugly”

    [BFFFTTHahaha - Ed.]

  231. Caucasian Ovtcharka/Shepherd. Yeah, I have no clue, but that was the kind of dog I had growing up.

  232. BLOODHOUND! That’s my guess. :)

  233. Quincy grew up with a Ovtcharka??

  234. Resriechan says:

    What if we guess that it’s a Mutt…They can’t poss. argue w/ that; it allows for any breed to be partially correct.

  235. Resriechan says:

    (or just give the calendar to QofD, just for sheer determination & stream o’ consciousness efforts…)

  236. Alexandra says:

    I think it’s a pitbull. Very cutes !

  237. it’s a heinz 57…

  238. It will not grow up cos that is without a doubt one of my bathroom sandals. I was looking for it the other night. Who stole it from me?!

  239. @ QofD: Yes, Scooby is a Great Dane. You can see him up close and personal in “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.” This little sweetie pie, I believe, isn’t one.

  240. st. bernard?

  241. o m g! i love you!!!

  242. @ Gillian: nope, cannot be a fuzzy potato… that’s what lazy guinea piggies are called. Hmmmm…. is it a guinea pig???

  243. I don’t care! i still love you!!!

  244. Queen of Dork says:

    Clarence: I bet Scooby the Mighty Great Dane stole it from you and gave it to Capybara.

  245. Queen of Dork says:

    or Scrappy

  246. From the shape of his cute little face, ear shape, and color/spot configuration….. I would guess that he will grow up to be a Saint Bernard! The ultimate irony of nature that something so cute and small could grow into something so big, slightly less cute (IMHO), and slobbery.

  247. Resriechan says:

    ok. I’ve figured out, where I’ve seen *that* kind of snout, before.

    It’s an Albino Mole Rat. Where’s Vanna, w/ my calendar?

  248. Queen of Dork says:

    Wait. I have a question and I hope somebunny can answer it. What was the name of the guy in the Scooby cartoon who was Scooby’s best friend? You know, the scruffy guy in the green T-shirt who Scooby was always jumping on when he was scared? What the heck was his name?! That wasn’t Scrappy. Scrappy was the puppy, right? Who was that green T-shirt guy? Help me! I can’t think of his name!!!

  249. I know! I know! Shaggy

  250. Queen of Dork says:

    THANK YOU!!!!

    *Charlie Brown rolling head over heels after Lucy yells at him*

    Man, pant, pant. That was driving me nuts. I’m wiping sweat beads of my forehead now.

  251. Mary Ann Clem says:

    Otter hound?

  252. Borzoi?

  253. Queen of Dork says:


  254. Petit basset griffon vendeen

  255. janet2buns says:

    Well, it’s not a behbeh bunneh because bunneh’s ears don’t go “flop” until they’re a little older. All new bunnehs are uppy eared.

  256. Kathleen L. says:


  257. Queen of Dork says:

    A shaggy looking otter?

  258. a saint bernard?

  259. Queen of Dork says:

    I have to go make a sammich. A nomlet and shag and bacon sammich. And then bed. I’m making no sense even to myself. Which is unusual. Most of the time.

    (It’s probably an otter. Or a seal of some sort. Maybe a turtle)

    goodnite Moon.

    [...did somebody say "shag" ?? - Ed.]

  260. Clumber spaniel

  261. I have to say a basset hound, but its a tough one, i think now the babies rule aplies for some puppies lol

  262. Waaait wasn’t this already solved? It’s a Welsh Corgi, riiiiiiiiight?

  263. basset hound

  264. Queen of Dork says:

    Or a loaf of wheat bread. Okay. bed.

  265. American Springer Spaniel?

  266. English bulldog

  267. I think it’s a rabbit hybrid.

  268. Beagle

  269. My guess is Australian Cattle Dog….
    or Cute Little Porker Dog! :D

  270. A snorgolicious Mutt! Maybe? Answer soon cuz I need to know!

  271. victoreia says:

    No, no, no. It’s clearly an oddly-shaped pillow disguised as a puppeh!

  272. sauzacash says:

    I agree with those who say Clumber Spaniel. I really think that what this cute baby is…besides just being cute.

  273. I know I’m not the first guess at this one, but I’m going with St. Bernard

  274. Is it a Labradoodle?
    That pink nosie is throwing me off!

  275. Labradoodle?

  276. It’s a real thing…I’m not crazy…

  277. golden retriever

  278. I vote Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

  279. [blinks] 278 comments? And not a nuffer among them? Wow! I are impressed…….

    (Of course, the contest angle had nothing to do with it……)

  280. Cumberland spaniel

  281. Shar pei

  282. It’s an American Brittany. (tries to be confident.) My blind rescue American Brittany is 1 year old today.

  283. Rat Terrier.

  284. That is a bull terrier.

  285. My guess is saluki, coz there’s no point guessing something anyone else have guessed so far…

  286. I give up. I lost my “periodic table of the puppies.”

  287. Yay!! Finally a St. Bernard!

  288. Don’t know the breed, but it has a snuggle-icious nose!

  289. i’m guessing sharpei.

  290. I’m guessing Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.

  291. i believe the bread is in the latin termanology :Adorabulous Nomulous in the Snorggleus genus.
    and i’m totallyus fluentus in latin, um us.

  292. and um oops… thats breed. not bread. darn my fingers for listening to my growling tummy.

  293. Brittany?

  294. China's Human says:

    I’m thinking it is a St. Bernard and totally adorable!

  295. Bipolar Wombat says:

    Hmm.That adorable muzzlepowche reminds me of a French mastiff, but the coloring’s wrong. How about a catahoula cur (AKA catahoula leopard dog)?

  296. A puppig! (puppeh piggy)

  297. Sandra S. says:

    Dudes, clearly it’s a sugar-beet.

  298. Well, I’ll go with Italian greyhound, since no one has said that (although they have said greyhound and whippet, which are pretty darn close!)


  300. I think its a great dane but OMG TELL US ALREADYYYY

  301. it’s def a shar pei! :)

  302. it’s definitely a shar pei.

  303. A doggyliciouspup of a dog ?

  304. Maybe it´s not a doggie at all, but a little bunny :)

  305. This little morsel will be a big, fierce, Anatolian Shepherd in about 23 months. Grr.

  306. A Bull Terrier?

  307. Maybe a Border Collie?

  308. Bull terrier.


    ahem. Ok…so maybe it’s not my most logical guess…i’m just a little partial to setters :P

  310. Looks suspicously like my dachshund as a baby, lol….dachshund final answer:D

  311. is it a lilac beagle?
    (possibly with a bee-sting?)

  312. no, no: my final guess is: a lilac or khaki beagle (no bee-sting)

  313. A shitzu? *rubs “soochie” for good luck* :D

  314. ok, one more guess, a sharpei?

  315. I’m going with lilac beagle

  316. I say golden retriever. It looks like it has shaggy possibilities. :)

  317. I’m guessing a St. Bernhardt.

  318. KittyMarthaPoo says:

    I’m thinking totally some sort of Spaniel, due to the tan markings.

  327. Barbara Young says:

  335. Connie Sjolie says:

    Bull terrier

  336. Definitely a tripehound. I’ve got one just like it at home.

  337. A Nomable Smooshdog?

  338. Peanuts mama says:


  339. Queen of Dork says:

    Sadly ,Peanuts mama: I think we’ll never know. (:

  340. I believe this must be a blood hound!

  341. Bedlington terrier?

  342. Australian Shepherd! :-D

  343. Catherine says:

    It looks like a terrior or maybe a border collie/labrador mix.

  344. michelle boxall says:

    Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

  345. Bull Terrier?

  346. The mighty wolf?

  347. regardless of correct breed*, queen of dork really should get a calendar for effort!

    *husky! is it a husky? i think it’s a husky.

  348. It’s a Canardly!! (cause you can’ardly tell by its looks!)

  349. Terri Phipps says:

    The puppy will be a Collie.

  350. Looks like Snoopy with that big round snozzle. Call me a crazy doofus, but I think it must be beagle (lilac variety …15 in. ,.. possibly suffering from allergies)?

  351. ooooohhhhh – nobody said Cane Corso yet!!

  352. I’m going to go for one of the more obscure breeds: Dogue De Bordeaux

  353. Sharpei/golden retriever mix?

  354. No wait, I was wrong…that’s a baby Winnie the Pooh!!!!!!!!!!!

  355. I believe it’s a cumberland spaniel

  356. I do believe this is a Parti-Color American Cocker Spaniel!

  357. Dawn Harkey says:


  358. Elizabeth says:


  359. Vicki:
    Where do you see the Bordeaux part?
    Arent all DDB red/brown?

    DDB puppies:

  360. oops I mean Clumberland

  361. bearded collie

  362. Stephanie says:

    A Jack Russel?

  363. i think…… a pug! :P

  364. Cambridge_Rat_Mom says:

    a bullie (bull terrier).

  365. It’s not a black Lab. Correct?

    Calendar, please.

  366. dachshund

  367. shih tzu!

  368. Cocker Spaniel I think!

  369. Kooikerhondje?

  370. annamaria says:

    a bunny? looks like a rabbit!

  371. YellowMiniNY says:

    St Bernard. My, what a schnozzle to grow into! :)

  372. @69 Theo, dearest Theo, oh, tell the audiance what the winning entry is…? puuuleeese?

  373. daisy1648 says:

    check out this website–scroll down–you’ll see that this is a baby cocker
    and no–I don’t know these people–I just did a google search for pics of baby cockers—-

  374. Crystal Hilbert says:

    I think he’s going to be a bull terrier. <3

  375. I think it’s a Brittany Spaniel

  376. OK I will now put my nuffer hat on. I HATE practicle joke, you said a free calender for guessing the breed and then you don’t TELL US! I don’t care about the calender it’s just that not telling the right answer is just MEAN!!!! You’re a MEANY and I’m sure you have COOTIES! I’m taking back my ball and going home, so there!

    [Patience, Gigi. It's the weekend. - Ed.]

  377. An Italian greyhound. They look just like that when they are in the larval stage.

  378. It is a peanut made out of marzipan.

  379. Kapten Hanna says:

    All my guesses have been taken, but I’m still gonna say English Cocker Spaniel or Clumber Spaniel…

  380. It’s a Bee Sting, Mastiff mix.

  381. daschund?

  382. Clearly, it’s a Luck Dragon (from Never-Ending Story).

  383. Mockingbird81 says:

    I am guessing lhasa apso! :)

  384. leemikcee says:

    Brittany (Used to be “Brittany Spaniel” but the spaniel bit got dropped.)

  385. Copperbat says:

    @daisy1648: many breeds look nearly identical at the newborn stage. It’s really, really difficult to tell them apart. But small differences like ear size and coat length are already apparent.

    It could be a spaniel, but I’m sticking with the Basset crowd. This morsel has some basset characteristics already developing.

  386. Queen of Dork says:

    It’s a marzipan ginger bread house.

  387. Queen of Dork says:

    (sprinkled with otter flavored cinnamon.)

  388. collie or beagle

  389. OK, so it will be a big, fierce Cocker Spaniel. Grr.

  390. Australian Shepherd?

  391. Catherine says:

    Ok, this is getting cruel. Just tell us already!

  392. new guinea singing dog .. i don’t know, really. i’ve always thought that breed name was funny. heheh and a very cute goggie too. :D

  393. A Cavocker?

    A Cavilier/King Charles Spaniel cross?

    My mum has one of those. Most beautiful dog ever but I think her ears block the light to her brain. She is not the shinest penny in the box if you get my drift. But so sweet and friendly and loving you don’t mind that accidently dropping a piece of string on the ground makes her spend 10 minutes sniffing it and running away and back trying to figure out what it is and if its going to eat her. And she has the best toehawks ever!

  394. @ queen of dork: otter flavored cinnamon .. wha? LOL!!!

  395. Queen of Dork says:

    kellie: Sometimes I don’t even understand myself.

  396. Christi G says:

    I guess aussie shepherd…..

  397. andrea b. says:

    Ok. I’m goin’ out on a limb here. King Charles Spaniel? Judging by smooshed snout and overall roundedness?

  398. I think the moderators just want us to reach 500 comments before the big reveal

    (right Theo? Meg?)

  399. Von Zeppelin says:

    A Prussian Schweinhund (played by Erich von Stroheim in many films of the 1920s and 30s). You can tell by the roll of fat on the back of the neck. They don’t grow the monocle and the jackboots until later.

  400. Peanutcat says:

    I can’t think; I’m wantin’ to nibble on those widdle ears!

  401. after all, what’s the highest number of comments for one post?

    (and I thought Molly was right at #2 with King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, which is why I haven’t chimed in before now!)

  402. Queen of Dork says:

    N. Fritz: Theo and Meg are still sleeping. (not together, they live in different dimensions and communicate via fax). They’ll be up in an hour or two and get back to us after they have had cereal with bananas in it and juice. Oh. But first they have to fight over who gets to keep the present in the cereal box. This is tricky, interdimensionally and all.

    btw: It’s an otter.

  403. Rats–I was going to guess pit bull, but too many other people have already used that. Can I just say it’s going to be a mutt? ;-)

  404. *is laughing her tocks off*

    The guesses here are a riot. After seeing HUNDREDS of puppies, …nope, I still don’t know.

    Possibly an American Staffordshire Terrier (your pitbulls), or Staffordshire Bull Terrier (unfortunately, most people think of this dog as a Stafford crossed with a Bull Dog or Bull Terrier, but is actually the predecessor).

    I’m going to say a red and white Bull Terrier.

  405. @QofD: I have one of those relationships too… you should see us fight when the prize is a Star Trek communicator!

  406. pit bull. I know it’s too late, but I need to be reassured of things constantly.

  407. No wait…Brittany/Golden Retriever mix?

  408. Resriechan says:

    @ all: G’morning/afternoon
    @ QoD: there is an “Innie” in yer personal Email inbox ! (From moi)
    @ Judy: certainly you can do so.

    (but, unf., it’s “been done”. But then, just about everything else, including “pat of butter” & “Clydesdale” has also been done, so you’re in a crowd of nice, fluffy type folks…at least until they riot over NO NEW POSTS in 12 hours??????)

    (was there a car wreck?And did it involve anyone from CO?)

  409. And it’s not made out of marzipan…clearly the lil puddin’ is made out of a wonderful mixture of velvet and chenille. :)

  410. i’m thinking golden labrador retriever!

  411. Borzoi.

  412. Brittany?

  413. Von Zeppelin says:

    CO fans, the time has come to TAKE MATTERS INTO OUR OWN HANDS!! The selfish imperialists who exploit us have been toying with us too long. Let the people themselves seize power and DECIDE ONCE AND FOR ALL what kind of puppy this is. Who is with me, comrades? DOWN WITH OUR OPPRESSORS! LET THE PROLETARIAT RISE! SHOES FOR INDUSTRY! (Lifts red banner, points dramatically at Winter Palace. Looks around and sees no one is following. Puts down banner and goes off for a soothing cup of tea)

  414. Shar-pei
    I think someone already got it. FOREHEAD WRINKLES ^_^

  415. Queen of Dork says:

    N. Fritz: I have one of those communicators and enjoy beaming myself to and from work every day. Just kidding. I WISH!

    Resriechan. Please. Be careful of the werewolf.

  416. I just scrolled through 413 entries hoping they’d posted the answer. For the record, my vote is basset hound. And by the way, I am making osso buco for dinner, with risotto. You are all invited. Bring your pets.

  417. Queen of Dork says:

    Von Zep: Put down that tea, pick up that banner and get your butt back over here!!! We must UNITE!!!

  418. emmberrann says:

    Whatever, It is, It is deeleeshussss! Could it be a baby sibling for Knute, the polar bear? His baby nose was approx. the same shape as this yummer puppers. Awww, cmon folks! What kind already. The sus—pense is killing us softly!

  419. Queen of Dork says:

    (I said that last bit through a loud speaker) I feel like I’m in that Sally Field movie, Norma Ray. UNION!!!

  420. Olivia Charwood says:

    Bull Terrier? smooshed nose…

  421. Kathy Bartlette says:

    A Springer Spaniel?

  422. fake name says:

    I was going to guess Bull Terrier too, but two people got there before me. :O

  423. Von Zeppelin says:

    OK, Queen of Dork. (takes final sip of tea, picks up red banner). Back to the People’s Revolution. CAST OFF THE SHACKLES THAT HAVE BOUND US TOO LONG, COMRADES!! DOWN WITH THE CORRUPT ARISTOCRACY!! (bellows additional stirring revolutionary sentiments).

    By the way, speaking of the aristocracy, do you think “Queen” is a proper title for a rabblerouser? Maybe you should be “Leading Female Skilled Industrial Worker of Dork.”

  424. @ Von Z and Qof D LOLOL grabs banner and joins hordes of Peeps Marching to the Bunny tea Cafe in Japan.

  425. From the looks of the ears. It looks more like a baby goat.

  426. I vote Beagle.

  427. A English Cocker is my best guess.

  428. Starts chanting in time to marching
    we want Puppies

    Soo cute
    and Fun
    rolly polly fluffy ones

    Big ones
    little ones
    all kinds tons and tons

  429. trick question – Mutt!

  430. Queen of Dork says:

    Von Zep: I really cannot help the “Queen” thing. I’m not aristocracy. (pant…pant…good Lord…that was hard for me to even spell.) It’s just a name my daughter gave me because I’m really dorky. On to the resistance!!!!

  431. LittlePixelPrincess says:

    Didn’t Theo imply there was a winner back at comment 68-70, or am I not reading him correctly?

  432. Queen of Dork says:

    We can never tell what Teho will or will not do.

    [I think you can safely depend upon me to do the Humpty Hump y'all - Ed.]

  433. Welsh Springer Spaniel?

  434. Pyranese?

  435. Queen of Dork says:

    Theo: That was really strange. (and lovely!) Do you have the Monster Mash somewhere? It is, afterall, almost HALLOWEEN! scaaarrryy. I think we should all dress up and go trick-or-treating!

  436. I say a Cavalier King Charles spaniel…but I’m sure it’s already been suggested.

  437. Tabby!

    Oh wait…

  438. Allons enfants de la patrie….!!!

    Oops. Wrong revolution.

    And whatever breed of pup it is, I still think it’s made of lemon meringue…

  439. Queen of Dork says:

    MadameX: Key Lime. Yum. Crust. It’s all about the crust.

  440. Brittany Spaniel??

  441. Brittany Spaniel

  442. Queen of Dork says:

    Okay. I’ll start. I’ll dress up as Metz’s plumber. Or this potao thing. Next?!

  443. Queen of Dork says:

    Oops! I meant potato

  444. The crust. And the meringue. Tall and fluffy mounds of gold-tipped meringue covering the sweet/tart filling…

    Heck, now I’m slobbering like a St. Bernard!

  445. Shar pei!!!

  446. Queen of Dork says:

    MadameX will join the Halloween party dressed as a meringue pie. Very good. Resriechan?

  447. Awwwww! It is a Basset Hound!!!

    When I was a kid my aunt and uncle had a basset – his name was “Taboo” and he was had the sweetest, deepest “barooo?” ever!!!

    QofD, I’d be honored to joint the Halloween Party attired as a lemon meringue pie. Should I bring anything? A dip, crackers, a pie? Tequila, perhaps?

  448. Queen of Dork says:

    MadameX: Yes!

  449. is it a lil baby catahoula leopard dog? it looks a lot like a baby pibble to me. a red-nose pit. gaaawwww

  450. VonZep, I would be forced to finger my pearls, peer through my lorgnette, and say “Well, I never!”

  451. Von Zeppelin says:

    QoD, I’d really like to come to the party wearing my full-scale costume of the Graf Zeppelin. It’s 776 feet long and 100 feet high–will there be room in your den? I’ll bring Ruffles (with rrrridges) and beer.

  452. Aha! I KNEW it was a basset, but about 10 gazillion people had already said it before I got here. The wrinkly face, the itty bitty ears that haven’t grown out yet … snorgliciousness! (BTW, to be a pedantic nerd: not lemon and white. The red and white will darken as the sweetie gets older. “True” lemon is basically white at birth, best I understand.)

    Want more basset buppy pics? Go check out Ozark Mountain Basset Resuce:
    (And that’s an expensive litter, too, so if those interested and able would please notice the Paypal button on the left hand side… thanks! And I am not affiliated with this particular rescue.)

  453. Queen of Dork says:

    Von Zep: Ruffles and beer…bring. It won’t fit it my house but for sure in my back yard. Peeps. Check this out. I just went to the store and the two ladies behind the counter were discussing soy v cow milk. The one didn’t want to put soy milk in her coffee. And I was like “soy or cow? it’s just clouds in your coffee.” Which made me think, hey, clouds in your coffee? someone sang that. So then I was all, “Carly Simon sang that in a song!” so then we’re all, which song? And I’m like, “YOU’RE SO VAIN!!1″ What a fun corner store I have, huh?

  454. JohnnieCanuck says:

    Thanks for replacing the clouds in my head with your earworm!

  455. Resriechan says:

    1: @ QoD: yeah, I’m in, on the Revolution — but, as is generally the case, I’m LATE!!!
    2: Yes, Theo — or maybe it was a Commenter/ Poster-Person …SOMEBODY provided the Monster Mash thing on some fairly recent CO comment stream (perhaps it was that Halcyon Day, when everybody grooved on the Billy Preston song “Nothing from nothing” (AND the legendary 2-foot Afro)…. (which then got into the Backstory about his earlier days as one of several “Fifth Beatle” people, at the time of “Let it Be” & “Hey Jude”)……
    okay. now I wanna go back up, to the song that Theo loaded, above.

    No — WAIT !!! Does this mean, that the picture in the contest ISN’T an otter, after all & QoD doesn’t win her own calendar?????

    OK, VZ, I request that we vote among our Revolutionary Constituency, that our new purpose be, to ensure that QoD be awarded a second, HONORARY calendar, for imaginative suggestions & sheer force of her own Cuteness. Is everybody in???

  456. Resriechan says:

    And @ Theresa: If I can be of any assistance w/ your pearl-fingering (no dirty jokes here, now, you younger whipper-snappers !!) or your lorgnette, please let me know. While my knowledge of Dante did drop a cylinder over under the Wombat, I am rumored to be Fairly Fluent en Francais (actually get fairly surprisingly frequent compliments….those folks must be Canadians, or something?)

  457. Queen of Dork says:

    Johnnie: I hate to be so “out of the loop” but really, what the heck does “earworm” mean? Also, what does “Blog” actually mean? Where does that word “Blog” come from and what does it mean??!! It sounds like a description of a huge seal flopping around on a rock or something, with all it’s majestic blubber. What is Blog?!!

  458. He’s clearly a snuzzlepops. Or a pyrenean wooper-boy. Or a morselhound. Sokay. I already has a 2010 C.O. calendar.

  459. Queen of Dork says:

    Blair: Seriously? How did you get it? I would be sooooo scared to put my debit card number on here. Is there a phone number to call instead? I WANT THAT CALENDAR!!!

  460. Von Zeppelin says:

    QoD: “Blog”–a common abbreviation of Web Log, a website in which one shares one’s opinions, thoughts, plagiarized poetry, and cat pictures with the great world out there.
    Also, I think, a Silver Age Marvel Comics villain from the Eighth Dimension. “The Fantastic Four Battle Blog the Unconquerable to the Death! Will Earth Survive?”

  461. so cute!! :-)

  462. Amazon is practically ten-dollaring them away and has been for a month or so:

    Okay, my last guess: he’s a Cute Overloadoodle.

  463. Queen of Dork says:

    Well. Okay, Von Zep. But I just wondered why it was called a Blog. I knew what it meant but why is it called necessarily, Blog? I just thought maybe the letters B.L.O.G. like, stood for something. But I guess we could have called it
    ‘Bunn’ if anyone had thought to do so, right? Not trying to be stupa, just trying to get a handle on the cyber world. *love* *and excuse my stupaness*

  464. Hot damn, People, nice work on all the guesses…

    Muffy! I just got your email, you WINNER, you!

    Expect both a wall calendar AND a desk calendar coming your way!

  465. Resriechan says:

    yay Muffie yay Meg.

  466. Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    I’m glad there were no witnesses because I just did a hoppy skippy dance of joy.

    Hooray for basset hounds!

  467. Resriechan says:

    QoD: now that the furor over the breed & calendar & wombat have all at least halfway reached resolution (REV-olution? VZ?? Do we have a total on the vote?)

    I’m gonna retire from computerland for the rest of my day & ponder on the brilliance of the flat-faced Floogy Chopsticks Kitty (sorry Winston — the cat, Winston, not the human commenter-biped one — for my disloyalty) ….

    Btw, The song that The Theo provided above, is actually pretty keen . Two related Questions: Are we who are non-urban, Caucasian Humans, allowed to enjoy a song of That Type? And do they allow that song in Minne-SOOOO-ta????

  468. Resriechan says:

    (oops I meant to say “MuffY”, of course. **blush**)

  469. Queen of Dork says:

    So. CO Overlords. What the heck is it?! We all want to know.

  470. yay to Muffy! congrats…you will LOVE your calendars (i got the wall size). As for the pupmorsel pic and all the comments..YAY AGAIN! i love it here….

    @QofD : may i please come to your party as a rain-soaked-dog-walker….? as i am now dressed appropriately, thankyouverymuch Mother Nature……

  471. Queen of Dork says:

    Meg? Wow. I’m humbled in your glorious blonde presence!

  472. Queen of Dork says:

    But. (he-he) I’m too lazy to scroll up through allll of that to find out what the breed was. Meg? Could you please just say what it was? (if not. I’ll start scrolling) Or ask the peeps!

    DogEared: Of course! You may come to the Halloween Party as whatever you want. It’s at my house. refreshments provided. And they’re yummy. (and scary).

  473. Resriechan says:

    @ QoD: it did say..but ye’re right c’est difficile a scroller Uuuuuuuup & Dooooooown to Meg’s Note at the Head of the page …but also Muffy re-commented “hooray for Basset Hounds” !!!

    thereunto & derivative, thereof appertainin’, ergo, etc.:

    BASSET HOUND. Hoorah for Schnozzes, Meg, Muffy, BH’s & (IMHO) Wombats.

    (now, let’s just hope we don’t have to hold a contest on choosing a name for the little guy/gal)

  474. Queen of Dork says:

    Resriechan: You crack me up! I’m going to order Chinese take-away for all of us now for our Halloween Party.

  475. Resriechan says:

    (glad I have that effect on someone !! I’ll bring along a package of Cinch-saks, to the Party, to help with the cleanup, tomorrow. VonZeppelin didn’t say whether her costume (the Zeppelin) is a disposable one or not, so cleanup *COULD* be a significant task)

    BFN — Back to “my little room” (Paul Simon song, I think….)

  476. Queen of Dork says:

    Is Von Zeppelin a guy or a girl?

    [Let's take a Scientific Wild-Ass Guess... - Ed.]

    By the way: Food’s here. Let’s party!!

  477. Yikes!! The Humpty-Dance!!!! Time had almost managed to wash that one out of my brain.

  478. @Resriechan, you must know of course, that Prince is from Minnesooota, so that sets the bar high for funkiness. :mrgreen:

  479. Genevia Pirtle says:

    Look’s like a Daschund baby to me…

  480. Bullmastiff!

  481. ultrapeanut says:

    my vote is: a miniature bull terrier!!

  482. Queen of Dork says:

    Ed: Weeellll, I thought a guy myself but he was referred to as the female side in a comment and you all have known each other for so long soo…I didn’t know… Anyway, sick and back to bed. :)

    [Heh. Maybe it seems that way, but we've never met. Heck, I've never even met Meg or the rest of the Cute Overload staff. - Ed.]

  483. Queen of Dork says:

    Say Whhhhaaaattttt?!!!!

  484. Von Zeppelin says:

    Resriechan and QoD–Permit me to state, for the record, that I am male. (signs notarized affidavit). Of course, with internet obscurity being what it is, I MIGHT be lying. I could be a woman. I could be transgendered. I could be a Sumatran fruit bat. I could be an Unholy Being from the Dreaded Realms of the Dead.

    I’m pretty sure I’m male, though.

  485. Queen of Dork says:

    Von Zep: I thought you were a male. Or a Sumatran fruit bat.. Or an Unholy Being from the Dreaded Realms of the Dead.

    PS I have been to the Dreaded Realms of the Dead. It’s not a very pleasant vacation spot and I wouldn’t recommend it.

  486. Von Zeppelin says:

    QoD, I agree that the Dreaded Realms of the Dead aren’t as good as the tourist websites make them sound. Worst thing: no venues offering live music.

  487. Queen of Dork says:

    And the nomading zombies. Good grief.

  488. Queen of Dork says:

    (They were NOT disclosed in the brochure. I’m STILL trying to get my money back from that vacation).

  489. Australian Shepherd

  490. Liz Condos says:

    Old English Bulldog

  491. (Leave Your Fake Name Here) says:

    I’m surprised no one has said Papillon yet. What if it’s ears aren’t perked up yet? =\

  492. Bull Terrier is my guess. Not a bulldog. Bulldog puppies are way cuter!

  493. A rabbit. If I had to guess the breed, I’d guess a giant sequoia rabbit.

  494. Jindo!!

  495. Queen of Dork says:

    Okay. I’ll try to be the first ever to hit 500. (five hundred and eleventy twelve or something) Do I get a prize?

  496. Queen of Dork says:

    four more to go

  497. Queen of Dork says:

    The human clock is neat. I’m trying for this.

  498. Queen of Dork says:

    Taaa Dahhhh!

  499. Queen of Dork says:


  500. English Bull Terrier

  501. An English Setter, perhaps?

  502. Oh myyy word… I come back from a total Windows Vista meltdown, and I see THIS!!
    The comments had me gigglesnorting!!

    I’m glad everyone had so much fun :)

  503. Resriechan says:

    Ok, so, to sum up: the picture that BEGAN this set of commentary, “Guess the Breed” is a picture, of a Sumatran Fruit Bat.

    Wow. Wouldn’ta guessed THAT one.

    And @ Theresa: Yet again, you amaze me. I thought that all yer knowledge was re. litt’ratuuuuuuure & knowledgeable Archive-y stuff. I wasn’t aware, that you had done a Minor in Funkology, too!!! And I did know that His Funky Highness was from an area supposedly bland & farm-y but not that he was FROM Minnnesoooooooota, specifically? wow. There is SO MUCH that I do not know.

    I think I”m gonna register for Kindergarten first thing Monday morning.
    Obvy, the first round of coursework either didn’t take…..or
    *Everything in the Known Universe has Entirely Changed* since I was in School lo (these many 3000 years ago).

    @ QoD: In re Otterz — please see **lots of stuff** under the CO Glossary (see the top of this page; open out on “Glossary”, find the “O” section) & click on several blue items there which say Otters !!! My Halloween gift to your day Sunday!

    (PS @ Ed: I’m really struggling with your statement, that you haven’t actually met The Meg. Aren’t you both located in The CuteOverload Office of Heaven???? I don’t INTEND to be argumentative; but wha’ you said doesn’t seem possible………)

    [Meg & Sparky are in San Fran, Mike's in San Diego (I think), Prongs is... you know, I haven't actually asked. (Prongs? Elucidation?) ...but me, I'm in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, Upper Midwest, USA; it's a bit of a hike out to the left coast. - Ed.]

    PS: will all so willing, please send “healthy” & “relaxed” vibes to The Queen
    (in Las V, NV)….evidently a Plague has attacked her & made her weekend off into somewhat of a bummer. Positive vibes, guyz/galz, yo?


  505. Queen of Dork says:

    Resriechan: Thanks. Not good over here. Feeling really ill. But cute animals really help as do your beautiful wishes and things. Back to bed.

  506. with the schnoz poofiness & wrinkle, got to be sharpei!

  507. Resriechan says:

    @ Ed: thanks for the elucidation, info & such in response to item in # 504.

    (Get Smart Agent Voice: ) “Would you beleeeeeeeev???”
    that I’m actually printing a little item about that for my CuteOv. Archival Folder?

    (I know, I’m quite silly that way. But, at least I’m not a drug addict or a bank robber.)

  508. Resriechan says:

    OMG I just realized that I let something actually potentially offensive into my thinggie there. I apologize deeply. Please, Ed., if you feel charitable & indulgent, remove the first of the two items after “at least I’m not …

    THAT was my worst interpersonal type gaffe ever I think. Oh jeez I really feel like an insensitive clod. Please do forgive. Entirely serious here.

    [What? I'm not seeing a problem... :? - Ed.]

  509. Pitas for Rita says:

    Brittany Spaniel was my immediate thought, I had one when I was little. You don’t see them out west very often. I miss you HUGGIE! She passed right before my HS Grad almost 20 years ago and yet I still get teary eyed when I see my daughter’s friend’s Brittany. *softly sobbing in the corner until I regain my composure* The McPupperson sure looks like a Brit. Is she/he up for adoption and if so could I put a bid in first? Or maybe just rent her/him out for snorgles every so often? Please?

  510. Heh Pita, no he’s very happy in his owners home. I sent in some other pics, so hopefully you guys will get to see more of the pure KYOOOT that were my Basset Babies :)

  511. Queen of Dork says:

    I would buy a calendar but I don’t really trust that this site is reeeaallllyy secure. I have gone on that Cute chat thing and have words I type all screwed up and made crazy. I wish there was a number I could call to send a check.

    [We don't sell stuff directly, y'know; that's all handled through established & reputable e-tailers like Amazon who've been doing this stuff for years. Cute Overload is neither a warehouse nor a gift shop, though I may think "more's the pity" with some regularity. My point is, you're money's safe with other people. ;) Also, the Meebo chat room is completely separate & nothing to do with sales. - Ed.]

    [...Oh wait, no, you're talking about the forum, aren't you? CuteTalk? Yeah, the mods there have a really bizarre word auto-replacement system in effect; it was originally intended for profanity, but it gets used for silliness. Truth be told, it drives me nuts too, though they assure me it's something you get used to. And again, that place is ENTIRELY separate, not officially a Cute Overload endeavor (it's a fansite, see) and it has nothing to do with credit-card-related stuff. - Ed.]

  512. Pitas for Rita says:

    I would LUVS the KYOOOT in my house. I like Bassets, but can’t stand the drool, lol. We had family here that had 2 Bassies and it was insane just trying to keep the couch dry. Oh wells. I guess I’ll just have to snorgles the pups I have then. Anyone interested in the pups that my TROLLOP of an 8 month old pup manged to get preggo with? We did everthing we could to restrain her, but apparently concrete block wall isn’t enough when you have a 4 lb dog that wants to mate. She’s a Yoranian (Yorkie/Pom mix) and her PLAYER of a Beau seems to be the Cocker Spaniel down the street. Emphasis on the first four letters of his breed. Oh well, I guess I will just have to post pics and see if anyone can guess THEIR BREED! :D

  513. Resriechan says:

    Hey QoD: I thought you said you were goin’ to bed to get Rest & Recuperate from the Cursed Disease????
    I sent you one last email to yer personal. Heck, I’ll buy you a CO calendar myself & mail it to ya with your Holidays Greetings card, ok? (as long as the retailer hasn’t run out of them, by the time I can get my own measly $15 to them; I’ll try, anyhow!)

  514. I think this is a french bulldog or maybe a boston terrier pup.:)

  515. Resriechan says:

    @ Pitasfor….

    I definitely can entirely relate to your loss. My deepest condolences to you. Our family had one dog, a Brittany Spaniel….an awesome, amazing & phenomenal person in fur. We were 5 kids; mom was trying to raise all of us. Dad was away flying Navy jets off aircraft carriers in the Pacific for 3 months at a time across many many years in a long career.
    When Skipper finally had deteriorated to the point when his Quality of Life was not good, our loving vet suggested that his days of enjoying his Life on Earth were past; so we followed his suggestion that Skipper would be happiest to be released from this life. The only moment I ever saw my dad Captn D. P. Thomas even come close to tears. And my mom said firmly & has kept this statement, that there would never be another pet in her house.
    We used to lay down, three of us together, with our heads using his side as our pillow, to watch the Wizard of Oz when it came on TV every year.

    RIP Captain Donald Patrick Thomas, USN (of Parkinson’s Disease, yr 2000)
    RIP, Skipper.

  516. Resriechan says:

    @ QoD: I didn’t mean to sound rude or to insist that you were going to bed; I was just surprised to see a post from you here, since your email mentioned going to bed. Sorry if I was rude — unintended. I’m so klutzy.

  517. Pitas for Rita says:

    @Resriechan Doesn’t it just suck rocks when you see your animal deteriorate before your eyes? I had the same thing. I kept praying she’d get better, but I was kidding myself. I wish there were more we could do for our Canine/Feline/Equine and any other -Ine species. I miss my doggie. It’s as simple as that. Doesn’t matter how long it’s been, a friend is a friend and you always miss them. Thanks for the support. We are trying to get our kids ready for the time when our oldest dog passes, because it could be anytime, really. We adopted her from the Humane Society 7 years ago and she supposedly was 7 then… Her sister that we adopted with her had to be put down already and I can’t imagine being without her Grumpy Old Grandma-ness in our lives. Ergo: new TROLLOP pup to help cover gap when the oldest passes. It really sucks to be a grown up sometimes. I have to say though, as far as blogs and forums go, this is by far THE NICEST one that I have ever posted in. Everyone is so considerate! Or is that just the Saturday night buzz making people happy? Inquiring minds… :)

  518. Resriechan says:

    @ Pitas: I just awhile ago, read up to your part about your 8-month old still a puppy wanting to become a group !!!! Wow!! Cement blocks??? THAT’s determination!!! At first, I thought “Trollop” was a strong term, but after reading that part, I can kinda see where ye’re coming from !! Ya just can’t raise kids these days, ya know?

    Yeah, I still miss Skipper; that’s for sure; and he died several years, before my dad died.

    Re. CO: it’s really a groovy bunch o’ coconuts, here. Occ, peeps do get the proverbial panties in the proverbial wad …but even there, generally it just deteriorates into a fairly well-spoken indignation without calling each other names like hamster & elderberry. Ya gotta have a pretty solid background of Monty Python & usually a fairly well-read school background, to keep up with things getting sidetracked into the fun stuff. You don’t have to actually be able to QUOTE literature (at least not ALWAYS) but it sure does help to have a set of Cliff’s Notes around. Oh, and a pretty diverse set of Popular Music references, as well. Earlier today the Ed was linking to the Humpty Dance from 1980; the other day we were on Prince & Raspberry Beret; other days we get all into the particular differences btw Peter Paul/ Mary & Pete Seeger…or the extra studio musicians for the Beatles’ albums….so be prepared to go off into the Internet to research a reference point sometimes…then the jokes are even more fun.

    Oh — Point to your advantage in keeping afloat, here. Go up to the letterhead (top of the page) and open up the CO Glossary. Look all through there. Including when you see items in blue there, open THOSE up, too for specific bits. That alone will keep ya busy for 30 minutes or so!!

    Peace. Goin to bed, myself, now !!

  519. Resriechan says:

    oops Humpty Dance/ 1989 NOT 1980. My bad, as “they say”

  520. Pitas for Rita says:

    @Resriechan : You mean THIS Humpty Dance?
    All right!
    Stop whatcha doin’
    ’cause I’m about to ruin
    the image and the style that ya used to.
    I look funny
    but yo I’m makin’ money see
    so yo world I hope you’re ready for me.
    Now gather round
    I’m the new fool in town
    and my sound’s laid down by the Underground.
    I drink up all the Hennessey ya got on ya shelf
    so just let me introduce myself
    My name is Humpty, pronounced with a Umpty.
    Yo ladies, oh how I like to hump thee.
    And all the rappers in the top ten–please allow me to bump thee.
    I’m steppin’ tall, y’all,
    and just like Humpty Dumpty
    you’re gonna fall when the stereos pump me.
    I like to rhyme,
    I like my beats funky,
    I’m spunky. I like my oatmeal lumpy.
    I’m sick wit dis, straight gangsta mack
    but sometimes I get ridiculous
    I’ll eat up all your crackers and your licorice
    hey yo fat girl, c’mere–are ya ticklish?
    Yeah, I called ya fat.
    Look at me, I’m skinny
    It never stopped me from gettin’ busy
    I’m a freak
    I like the girls with the boom
    I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom
    I’m crazy.
    Allow me to amaze thee.
    They say I’m ugly but it just don’t faze me.
    I’m still gettin’ in the girls’ pants
    and I even got my own dance
    The Humpty Dance is your chance to do the hump
    Do the Humpty Hump, come on and do the Humpty Hump
    Do the Humpty Hump, just watch me do the Humpty Hump
    Do ya know what I’m doin’, doin’ the Humpty Hump
    Do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump

    ROFLOL cause I SOOOOOOOO remember this video!

  521. Pitas for Rita says:

    Was that a bit much? Sorry. ;)

  522. Queen of Dork says:

    Pitas for Rita: Wow. That was a freak out session. But me likes!

  523. AuntieMame says:

    So when do we get to see the full growed morsel?

  524. Pitas for Rita says:

    @ QOD: So do you think I’ll fit in here? On occasion I do have the tendency to be a bit random. Or post something like my last post. =) Do you think the C.O. crowd will like me? I LOVE reading all the posts from all of you. Especially NTMTOM. I have 2 friends that are Mikes and we say that all the time to distinguish between them. I hope my randomness and tendency to go off on tangents will be well appreciated here. :D

  525. Queen of Dork says:

    Pitas for Rita: LOVE.

  526. Mary (the first) says:

    WHAT?? Guesser # 4 won and yet you allowed us all to stress out and make fools of ourselves for another (at last count) over 500 reponses?! That’s just .. just .. cruel!!

  527. Mary (the first) says:

    OK, now I scrolled up and see the winner was announced at 484 which means “ONLY” 480 responses past the one that won. Still cruel and inhumane! Forcing us to look at this little tidbit and try to figure out what he/she is without the advantage of a snorgle to help. Cruel, I say.

  528. Pitas for Rita says:

    Why ty QOD. I’m feeling it already. Too bad I have CDO (that’s OCD, but with the letters in alpha order, as they should be!) and since you were post num 525 and I shall now be 526 I must continue to post until we have reached 550. Things must be increments of 5, 10, or 25. Since the numbers are so high already, it must be 25s now. I hope you understand… ROFL.

  529. Queen of Dork says:

    I like pita bread. With tuna in it.

  530. Pitas for Rita says:

    With dill pickles and Miracle Whip.

  531. i say its a mutt (any beeds)

  532. Brittney Spaniel

  533. Resriechan says:

    @ Pitas: Yup, yup; that’s the one! I rather ‘specially enjoyed the fact that this tough lookin’ urban dark-complected fellow, with dark shades on, chose to use the word “spunky” in the lyric. nice bit o’ oddity, that.

  534. Resriechan says:

    ps @ Pitas: didja do the assignment that I suggested, up in the Glossary?
    Truly, there are bits there gua-RON-teed to make ya LOL AND in addition, they will actually explain some backstory behind some recurring sub-topics…..
    Really pretty fun.
    Gratis a Theo, so we unnerstand.

  535. Resriechan says:

    @ Pitas: ( IF I managed to navigate the internet & cite the link correctly, etc., …)please see/ simply click on the following very descriptive & insightful review, of the song in question:

    The Funky Research Department

  536. Resriechan says:

    @ Ed in 508 …ok, thanks for checkin’. I thought I was bein P Incorrect & unkind & insensitive & all kinds of other stuff, when I said “…not a Drug Addict”…thx for your lookin’ it overrrrr…

  537. Pitas for Rita says:

    @ Resriechan: Thank you for the Glossary, I am quite familiar with Barfing Rainbows, Baroo, and my most favorite (at least until I get throug the Cs) C.O.X.C.U.

    I liked Humpty’s fez with the tag still attached. Very Minnie Pearl-esque.

  538. Queen of Dork says:

    Ed: Oh! Thanks for the exply!

  539. Resriechan says:

    @ Pitas: wow kinda deep, when we end up w/ Minnie Pearl & D. Underground having a fashion element in common ………Kultcha Clash but yet….Symmetry !!!

  540. English Bulldog

  541. Sandi's Mom says:

    That nose looks to be a very young golden retreiver , but the coloring looks as to be a cocker spaniel pup.

  542. are we still guessing this puppy’s bread? Do we still not know?

  543. It’s a bassett hound. Muffy guessed correctly, or perhaps just knew her pups that well! ;0) Grats Muffy muffy bo buffy! Because of you I had to go and actually spend money on a calendar lol….Now I have to wait until January to use it.

  544. Thx for the reminder, Bunnypoo. I have to get my calendar too.

    a basset! I had a basset puppy (shame on me) but he was at least six weeks old when I got him. This lemon meringue marzipan morsel must be only days or hours old. The ears have a long way to grow, but they will make it. Congrats Muffy! BH’s forever! (BHF?)

  545. chug

  546. Jackie337 says:

    brittney spaniel, definitely.

  547. @Queen of Dork and any other peeps who might have signed up for or visited Cute Talk, yeah we’ve got a weird auto replace thing going on that might throw some of ya. We don’t go in and personally edit your posts though, it is an automated thing we set up that if the system sees a word from the list we created it automatically replaces it with one of the silly offbeat replacements we chose. It’s all meant to be for fun and not to make you upset, and we’re talking right now of either creating a glossary (as suggested by Theo) or scrapping it altogether.

    Also I wanted to ask, if anyone who has signed up on Cute Talk within the last 2 months that has not received a welcome email from me to please email me metztree @ as we seem to be having trouble with the forum’s email notifications. If you hadn’t received the email that might explain some of your confusion about how our auto replace works as I tried to cover that in my welcome.

    And lastly, a HUGE thank you to Cute Overload for hosting a link to our forum, we aren’t officially a part of Cute Overload by any way shape or means, just a buncha peeps like you who met here and moved some of the conversation to a new venue. Thanks for putting up with our wild & crazy ways CO!

  548. Shar Pei!

  549. I’ve voting for shih tzu!

  550. Bull terrier

  551. Basset hound.
    No other breed has schnozzle rockin’ like this.

  552. Resriechan says:

    @ Metz: Heya !! Useful details & such.

    1) If y’all “di’unt” already email QoD from her comments box, about your requests above, I’ll send her a direct email with the paragraph copied, so she’ll be sure to have it avail to act..
    2) Myself, the last couple of weeks I’ve been unable to use a computer/ internet that would let me hook back into CuteTalk. When she & I were communicating there at first, I was on my personal laptop/ apt room w/ an internet device there. However my Internet receiver “crashed & burned” a few days after she & I got ea others’ direct emails….so now the computers avail to me w/ Internet have Parental Controls/ Community shared equipment that won’t let me go to the CT thinggie so I don’t even know, wh. there have been any emails to me, there, since my personal internet receiver “busted” …..

    Thanks for the conscientious help (& thanks also to Theo for being somewhat an intermediary on these “circumstances & “Sichuashions”. Thanks, Theo !)

    Peace & grooviness to all.
