Going to the Moon BRB



Tia A. claims George (tinfoil) and Olive (bed) are astronauts, and that some guy named Jonathan took this picture. I’ll call LOL-NASA to double check her sources.



  1. maybe he was the tinman for halloween. i would give him milkbones if he came to my house!

  2. This might be a nice idea for Jiffy Pop.
    Might be difficult to get the dog into that foil pan but worth a try!

  3. Pups in spaaaace!

  4. Oh, my bags are packed, I’m ready to go…

  5. having a successful LAUNCHING. lol

  6. AuntieMame says:

    Even his (her?) tail is wrapped up. LOL! (Although doesn’t all that foil interfere with communications from the mothership?)

    Beam me up, Scotty! Kthxbai!

  7. Queen of Dork says:

    Crap! This makes me think of that song by…crap…what’s his name? Who sings that song? What’s that song about a Captain flying away into space? Is that Sir Elton John? You know…the one about flying into space? I’m losing my mind here. Am I thinking Floyd here? The song about Major something or another?

  8. earlybird1 says:

    Ground control to Major Tom…

  9. QoD, I know the song you mean, but don’t rememeber the name, either. David Bowie, a Space jlaurhg, is my son’s guess.

  10. earlybird1 says:

    Take your protein pills and put your helmet on (David Bowie, Space Oddity)

  11. kibblenibble says:

    Ground Control to Major Tom… Q of D, I think it’s David Bowie.

  12. kibblenibble says:

    Jinx, people!

  13. Queen of Dork says:

    Wend: Thanks.
    earlybird1: Yes! Ground control to Major Tom.. We’re on to something here. How does the rest of it go? My brain is hurting with the stress of it all.

  14. smartyboots says:

    Queen of Dork, take your protein pills and put your helmet on….


  15. smartyboots says:


  16. This should totally be an album cover.

  17. So this is how Olive the Other Reindeer flies at Xmas.

    But I was thinking more Major Tom {with a happy ending} than Rocket Man:
    Take your kibble pills and put your helmet on.

    For heeeeere I am
    Sitting in this tin foil
    Farrrr above CO.
    My human is askew,
    And there’s nothing I can do . . . awooo

  18. earlybird1 says:

    Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
    Ground control to Major Tom…

  19. earlybird1 says:

    @dub1: I was Olive one year! I had the headband with reindeer ears and a shirt with the word “Olive” on it. Not many people got it. *hangs head in shame*

  20. earlybird1 says:

    I mean reindeer antlers. Pshht.

  21. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh cool! You guys are bringing it back to me!

  22. Queen of Dork says:

    Speaking of Bowie! Let’s have a party!


    *music playing really loud*

  23. Von Zeppelin says:

    I fear a bit for this pup’s safety in that space suit. I am not entirely confident that it is designed to be used in an unpressurized spacecraft. Maybe we should lobby Congress to increase NASA’s budget so they don’t have to use the Reynold Wrap suits.

  24. Von Zeppelin says:

    BTW, I see the mission backup astronaut is in the background resting up for the launch.

  25. Queen of Dork says:

    Put on your red shoes and dance with me……

    [Close… – Ed.]

  26. honeypants says:

    This is in the top 5 best photos I’ve ever seen in my life. Ever!

  27. Queen of Dork says:

    Let’s Play! (to the song we’re hearing on the radio)

  28. Queen of Dork says:

    And if you say run, I’ll run with you…
    And if you say hide, I’ll HHHiiddddeee

  29. Queen of Dork says:

    Because my love for you
    Would breeaaakk my heart in two
    If you could come
    Into my heart
    and tremble like a…..
    (dun-da-dun-da-da-dun. da-da–dun-dun-dun-dun-dun).

  30. victoreia says:

    Here I was, thinking of Sir Elton’s “Rocket Man”……

    Okay, his tail’s wrapped, but where’s his helmet?

  31. Queen of Dork says:

    (holding lit lighter and waving it to and fro over my head)

    *and I think it’s gonna beeee a long, long time*

    Sir Elton Rocks!

  32. But there are TWO songs about Major Tom! Don’t forget “Major Tom (Coming Home)” by Peter Schilling.

    Earth below us
    Drifting falling
    Floating weightless
    Calling, coming home

    (I always liked the German version better, for some reason.)

  33. Queen of Dork says:

    Noelegy: Cool.

  34. Queen of Dork says:

    And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time..

  35. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh! no, no, no….
    I’m the rocket maaaaaannnn

  36. ummmm, who’s Olive the Other Reindeer? forgive my lack of cool

    Love the pups. I’m not sure my cats would be willing to get wrapped in foil, even if I promise good highlighting effects.

  37. On a different topic, do the humans who live in this house own anything? Or maybe they just moved in? So pristeen!!

    And…. beep!

  38. AuntieMame says:

    debg, it’s a really cute children’s christmas book. I think there are a couple sequels, too.

  39. Queen of Dork says:

    Just put on your helmet.

  40. Copperbat says:

    This post is super awesome. The end.

  41. My first thought was that he dressed up as a burrito for the free burrito giveaway at Chipotle on Halloween.

  42. debg, “Olive the Other Reindeer” is a cute childrens book and an animated tv movie with Drew Barrymore and Michael Stipe etc doing voices. It’s about Olive, a dog who thinks she’s the mysterious “other reindeer” from the Rudolph song. (“Round John Virgin” from Silent Night makes an appearance too if I recall).

  43. The look on the pup’s face is hilarious. He looks a little stunned at his human’s antics.

  44. Puppy in the back is quietly giggling, GLAD he wasn’t the first one to wag his tail when his human came in with a roll of tin foil, a smile and said “I’ve got an idea! Who wants to help?”

  45. I call no fairs! I was just at my friends’ house, and they foster dogs. The dogs there were SOOOOOO cute tonight, and cos I live in a no-pets apartment, I can’t have one! Then I come home and see these two awsome sweeties here, and I can’t have those either! I may resort to pouting over a lack of pups in my life! Don’t make me do it! I weeeeeell doo eet!

  46. love the look haha

  47. @Susanna, they were giving away free burritos at Chipotle?

  48. PS I think that the goggie is trying really hard to keep the aliens out. Isn’t that what tinfoil is for (rattle rattle)?

  49. PPS Anyone want to wager on when they’ll knight Bowie? You KNOW he’s thinking “I used AT LEAST as much glitter as him, and here I am, still MR. Bowie. Hmph.”

  50. PPPS . . . a a a a a nd don’t forget:

  51. Oh drat.

  52. Theresa: Oh yes, vintage Police! 😀

  53. Queen of Dork says:

    Ed: Interesting that you posted a First Ascent link to that song cause I’m always interested in what the guys/chicks are doing on “the hills.” 🙂

    [Uh… what? – Ed.]

  54. I want to kiss and hug and belly-rub and smoochety schmooch that little patient McPuppersons! I bet he would have the same expression, though.

  55. Queen of Dork says:

    The Police. I couldn’t watch the vid but I really love their old music. Such as Da-doo-da-da.

  56. Once A Fish says:

    Does anyone else remember a brief scene in “Running with Scissors” when Augusten wraps the dog in tin foil?

  57. Queen of Dork says:

    Once A Fish: What?! No, I don’t remember that. What?! It sounds funny. Link maybe?

  58. I hope it’s the Reynolds double wrap stuff. I’d worry if was a crummy store brand of foil.

  59. he’s soooo cute!
    i love me a patient pup that puts up with human ideas….first day i adopted my Molly last year, i bought her a sweater and she had that same look….

  60. Could someone tell me George’s breed? He’s too adorable.

  61. I’m thinking he’s a mix? Mixies are the best! Or so says my chi/sheltie/shiba/whatever boy. 🙂


  63. janet2buns says:

    @debg: “all of the other reindeer” = “Olive, the other reindeer.

  64. MIXES ROCK! my guess is there’s some sort of beagle in that mix.

  65. Awwwwww how adorable!! wanna go home and hug my babies!! I get this feeling every day when I come here ♥ so does the girl next to my cubicle! Thanks for sharing this 🙂

  66. Houston…we have a problem…

  67. People in mental health worry about folks who wrap their dogs in tin foil.

    [Dogs in tin foil worry about folks who wrap their people in mental health. 😉 – Ed.]

  68. Queen of Dork says:

    Ed (in response to #53): Well, the first time I clicked on your link in my comment it was from First Ascent, which is a company that sponsors people who are brave and nuts enough to climb really huge mountains such as Everest and K2. Brrrrrrr. gives me chills to think of doing such a thing. Anyway, I LOVE this site for it’s wackiness!!! 🙂

    [Well, that was weird, and unintentional. 😕 – Ed.]

  69. Once A Fish says:

    I looked for a link for that particular scene on youtube… can’t find it… I guess you’ll have to just watch the movie, then, Queen of Dork!

  70. Queen of Dork says:

    Once A Fish: Guess so.

  71. Let’s light this candle!

  72. Pretty little thing, lemme light ya candle
    Cause mama I’m sho hard to handle, now
    (it gets around)

  73. Queen of Dork says:

    Ed. Yes. strange. 🙂

  74. I think we all knew that Teho is hard to handle.

  75. cute! i wonder if they went to chipotle and got a free burrito.

  76. I’m still perturbed about missing out on this free burrito business.

  77. Queen of Dork says:

    OMG…Calling all peeps! I don’t know where you all live but you must get in on this! Here in Vegas, PBS is prodcasting this wonderful show about mom animals and their babies! YUM!!! They just showed baby pengiuns. YUM!!! Now bears!!! I have to go now and be ded from the cuteness of it all.


  79. Anonymous Coward says:




    talk about a patient pup! if i was to even try this on one of my cats, i’m not sure it would be legal to repeat what would very possibly ensue! (no, it’s not like encountering a rare parrot)



  80. George looks a lot like the dog who had the falsies on her butt. Remember her?

  81. Toooooo cute — I love the dog’s expression: “This is weird, but I’ll humour the human…” I love how dogs are game for almost anything in the name of fun.

  82. Delicioso!!! OMG WANT!!!

  83. Copperbat says:

    When I was in art school, there was a woman that shopped at the school store who wore helmet made of many layers of foil to protect her head from cosmic rays. I didn’t have the heart to tell her aluminum doesn’t stop those. X]

    It was a super cool helmet tho.

  84. All systems are go,
    are you sure?
    Control is not convinced
    But the computer
    Has the evidence
    No need to abort…the countdown starts!

    (What a patient pup! 🙂 )

  85. “Im not the dog they think i am at home
    Oh no,no,no, i’m a rocket dog!”

  86. Skyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Pilot!
    How high can you fly?

    Good night, Peeps, the ol’ Corgi on the wall is telling me it is time for bed….


  88. Pretty sure. He isn’t puking.

  89. Has anyone else realized there is a second dog in the pic on the Bed!?!
    He’s probably jealous his brother gets to have all the fun! 😉

  90. @CopperBat, what, it doesn’t??????????

  91. There is something so surreal about this photo! LOL

  92. @Theresa Certain Chipotle locations give away free burritos on Halloween if you come in dressed like a burrito. Here’s the info from this year’s promo: http://www.dealseekingmom.com/chipotle-free-boo-rito-burrito-on-halloween/

    I’ve never done it, but my brother has. He said all you have to do is put a piece of foil on your head.

  93. The second dog is my niece. A Puerto Rican Street Dog….and sweet as sugar. She is actually laughing at Georgies costume because she poked a hole in it earlier that night…. 🙂

  94. It’s his Halloween costume. He’s a left over.
