  7. I need a more extreme C.O.X.P.N.F.C.U!!!

  8. Noscicle!! WANT!! such a cute little puppy ♥♥

  9. Freckle nose is to cute, and those EYES!

  10. *dabs a little bit of sun-bloc on non-freckular nose bits*

  11. That close-up is not as extreme as one would hope *tear*

  12. Queen of Dork says:

    *comes to* Are the eyes blue? With the freckles? On the nose? This isn’t even playing fair.


  13. Queen of Dork says:

    *gasping* paws. in the first pic.


  14. victoreia says:

    That first pic, he’s so workin’ the puppy eyes.
    The second pic, I detect a channeling of Joey Tribiani. “How you doin’?”


  16. Those eyes! Those paws! Those ears! Those nose!

    Er, sorry. I got carried away by the extreme cute. QofD is right. This isn’t playing fair, not by a long shot…but I’ll manage.

  17. Why would you even want to get rid of freckles like these? (And, speaking as a member of the Rare Spotted Tribe, why would you want to get rid of freckles at all??)

  18. kibblenibble says:

    His eyes look green to me.

    Who’s a cute widdle Springeaw Spaniew puppeh? You are!

  19. Jan Bolen says:

    That Pup is precious!!! Not just because of those cute nose freckles, but look at the limpid blue-green eyes!!!! ….m-m-melt!!!!

  20. Queen of Dork says:

    Noelegy: Ha-ha! I kind of tell people this joke. Okay. I’m trying not to be un-PC here and not offend anybody. But…Oh to hell with it. I’m just going to say this. As a black woman, (ha-ha. he-he) Sometimes I tell people, (he-he) “I’m not REALLY black, I just have a LOT of freckles!” :)hahaahhhahaahhahah….hahahhhahahah..gasp…hahahahhaah! Okay. I think it’s funny. Eds, of course, do with this as you will.

  21. Those eyes, those EYES!

  22. Dreamspinner Cheryl says:

    Queen of Dork-!!SNORK!!

  23. If you connect the dots, you will get “The Last Supper.” 😯

  24. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa: Leonardo Da Vinci is my time traveler lover.

  25. Queen of Dork says:

    Dreamspinner Cheryl: He-he!

  26. OMG. I love Springers!!

    *faints dead away*

  27. Von Zeppelin says:

    Theresa, you just gave away the plot of Dan Brown’s next blockbuster novel.

  28. Von Zeppelin says:

    PS–This nose-freckle secret has been kept through the centuries by a clandestine brotherhood of soldier-monks (etc). . .

  29. Springer or Brittany Spaniel???? I’m bettin’ on a Brittany! How I love brown doggie noses!!

  30. victoreia: lol! No kidding!

  31. earlybird1 says:

    OH! Those baby blues/greens! *faints* Not to mention those feets, pink nosies, and curly ears. (echos QofD’s “thud”)

  32. @Theresa #22……classic….take a bow please.
    oh and someone notify my next of kin…..i am ded from the freckles. and the eyes. and the feetsies. and the perfect dark chocolate coloring.

  33. beepbeepbeep…my dog is so glad I have something else to beep today…besides his own big schnozzzzz!

  34. I think pic #1 needs to be added to the “proof of puppy dog eyes” post. I’m glad this dog is not mine, I would never leave my house for the sake of kissing his yittle nose!!

  35. @VonZep, I fear for my life. 😯

  36. Queen of Dork says:

    earlybird1! *fanning*
    VonZep: shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Good Lord, my man. It’s supposed to be a secret! You’ll give it all away.

  37. My puppy looked just like her, minus the freckles on her nose. I miss her being that small and cute!

  38. Queen of Dork: Love it!
    Two of my nieces are part Hispanic and have lovely skin that tans even darker in the summer. One of them was staying with me last summer and she commented on my freckles. She was 7 at the time, I believe. I explained to her about melanin and how everyone has a different amount of it, and in her it showed up as tan skin, and in me it shows up as little spots on light skin. The spots get darker if I go out in the sun, but they never, ever become a tan. She was amused by that and a little freaked out by the concept of albinos. My hubby is also very freckled (he’s a redhead), so if we ever have kids, they are sure to be spotted as well. My mom called them “sun kisses” when I was little.

  39. Von Zeppelin says:

    @Theresa–as well you might, my dear. As well you might . . . (draws dark cowl around face, steps back into shadowy cloister)

    QoD, I KNOW it’s supposed to be a secret. The Spanish Inquisition made me tell. I didn’t expect them at all. . .

  40. baileysgrandmom says:

    Brittany Spaniel? Is she still in show biz? Wait…isn’t she the pothole in the insurance commercial now?
    Cutest puppeh evar!

  41. Aww, sweetie waiting for a big kiss! *smoooch*

    Won’t the next Dan Brown novel have the same plot as the others…?

  42. I love Springer Spaniels! The freckled nose, the curly ear tufts, the eety-bitty paws. They’re freckled on their feet too, y’know. And tri-color springers have two different colors of freckles :3

  43. @VonZep, I wasn’t expecting the Spanish Inquisition, snerk snerk.

  44. looks more like a brittany to me. >.< cant really tell. either way, insanely cute!

  45. doomchild says:

    Looks exactly like my springer when he was a kid 🙂 Blue eyes, fuzzy fur and spotted nose… Oh yes 🙂

  46. Queen of Dork says:

    Noelegy: “sun kisses” That’s so sweet!!!

  47. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZ: Are you okay? I hope they didn’t torture you too terribly.

  48. Queen of Dork says:

    Peeps! I think my cat is broken. He has a perfectly good FULL bowl of food but when I go in the kitchen he starts yelling at me and cussing me out. 😦

  49. Von Zeppelin says:

    QoD: First they arrived, as always unexpectedly. Then they used. . . the Comfy Pillows (sobs uncontrollably).

  50. Von Zeppelin says:

    QoD, re: your cat: You mean the cat is behaving in an unusual and not entirely rational manner? That would be a first. Everybody knows cats are entirely predictable at all times.

  51. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZ: Not the comfy pillows!!! No! They have no…things and stuff.

    My cat is broken. 😦

  52. Queen of Dork says:

    Now my cat is resting. Now’s a good time to change his spark plugs.

  53. he’s perfect just the way he is… ❤

  54. ThirdShift says:

    Awwww! Look at those eyelashes!

    Errmm, also want to mention that the Vanity Fair article was picked up by The Daily Dish and CO was mentioned and Meg quoted. The blog also gave equal time to the penguin, yes, that one.

  55. The speckled muzzlepowsche, the wavy ear floofs, the naughty expression… it’s just too much for me! *thud*

  56. Oh Puppers, do not cover up those freckles! They work for you!

  57. That’s a brittany! Our britt, Boomer, has freckles on his nose and I kiss them all the time. Love that pupper’s freckly nose!

  58. victoreia says:

    VonZep…..did they “send in [dramatic pause] the NUNS!”?

    (Yes, yes, I know; different Inquisition….)
    [singing]The Inquisition. (What a show!) The Inquisition. (Here we go!)….

  59. History of the World Part I!! Love when the nuns dive into the pool a la Esther Williams!

  60. I think the pup in the close-up is the same size as in the first picture. More extreme-ular, please!

  61. *dead*

  62. Von Zeppelin says:

    Victoreia, Theresa, fortunately, I was interrogated by the Monty Python Inquisition, not the Mel Brooks Inquisition. (Would rather have them using the Comfy Pillows than playing Ping Pong with. . )

    By the way, I have always thought I should compose a song about the Inquisition using the tune of “The Continental”–
    Beautiful music
    Dangerous rhythm
    It’s something daring, the Inquisition
    A way of torture that’s really ultra new . . .

  63. Queen of Dork says:

    Von Zep: Wow! Thank God it wasn’t the Mel Brooks Inquisition.



  64. Von Zepp=Springtime for ………..

    And, happy 100th anniversay of Herr Von Zeppelin!

  65. Von Zeppelin says:

    QoD–“*shudder* *shiver*”? Tell me about it! You should be glad you’re not the KING of Dork. (If the queen had . . . she’d be the king).

    Maybe we should just change the subject. Have you seen the orange kitty falling between the sofa cushions?

  66. Queen of Dork says:

    Von Zep: Yes, I’ve seen it. It caused me to do an inventory of things under my own couch cushions. I think I’ve recovered $3.00 in pennys so far…

  67. Von Zeppelin says:

    Katrina–Why, thank you. This is indeed the 100th anniversary of the Deutsche Luftschiffahrtsgesellschaft , the airship service founded by my screen-namesake, Ferdinand Adolf Heinrich August Graf von Zeppelin. It was, I believe, the world’s first airline, operating the mighty Zeppelin airships (with an interruption for the Unpleasantness of 1914-1918) until 1935, when those evil Nazis took over the service.

  68. Queen of Dork says:

    *tossing cushions everywhere*

    Oh! There’s my cell phone! And my stapler!

  69. Stuff the freckles, those eyes are gorgeous. Not too sure about the disapproving look though.

  70. That picture is so awesomely cute, I can smell the puppy breath.

    *breathes deep*

  71. I def think those eyes are different colours, one blue, the other green! Absolutely beautiful.

  72. that’s not a close-up so much as it’s a different picture 😦

  73. Queen of Dork says:

    I’m so watching Ab Fab right now! bye!

  74. We got our bulldog puppeh with freckles on his nose. The breeder thought he was perfect except the freckles didn’t show well in the ring, so she decided to give him up for sale.

    One year later, and his nose freckles all joined together into a solid black nose. He’s a total hunk and when we showed up to her annual barbecue she almost fell over with jealousy that she didn’t keep him. But he likes snuggling on the couch much more than prancing around the ring, so we don’t show him 🙂

  75. That’s my puppy! He’s a Springer Spaniel, and those were his bebe pictures. The nose freckles are still there, but they’ve grown together a little bit. And his eyes were the prettiest shade of blue, but now they’re more a greenish brown. Ah, they grow up so fast. Thanks, Meg!!!!

  76. Ok, cute pup and all. But seriously, Meg… what Extreme Close-up???? I wouldn’t even call it a Somewhat Extreme Close-up! In fact, Blah, One Step Forward, a Tiny Bit Closer Close-up would be all that it gets.

    Sheesh. Talk about false advertizing. Get us all wound up and everything and then sheesh, what a let-down.

    I’m done now. Cute pup.

    This picture also belongs in the Puppy dog eyes thread

  78. I’m overloaded with cute….no, not really, but yes. Oh…kissy kissy kissy.


  80. What kind of dog is this?
