No one expects the Spanish Lickquisition!

So! You think you are strong because you can survive the Soft Cushions and the Comfy Chair! Very well, then. We shall unleash our ultimate weapon!

Fetch… the Licking Puppies!

I’ll say anything, Sumeet S.! Just make it not stop!



  1. Pup-attack!! 😀

  2. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a giggling man?

    … I suspect three, but would prefer not to see the derivation of this conclusion.

  3. Birdcage says:

    How many of us would rather be inside a pile of puppies right now? Show of hands!?!?!? *waves hand in the air*

  4. Trabb's Boy says:

    Oh my god, I have never envied a person so much in my entire life! What a lucky guy!

  5. paulajeanne says:

    Oh my! Nothing can be better in life than to have a bunch of puppies love you to pieces. Unless it’s a bunch of kitties, maybe.

  6. The world would be a much better place if all of us had a chance to have some of this puppy therapy every day.

  7. If I got to choose the way I’d die, this would be it! Smothered in a pile of puppies.

  8. Biggles says:

    [So bad at HTML]

  9. crimson says:


  10. I WANT!!!!

  11. Talk about animal therapy – I defy anyone to not feel better after that! Such fun!

  12. Forget milk and honey… this is my idea of perfect heaven!!!

  13. shimrod says:

    you know puppies only lick your face cos theyre trying to make you hurl a tasty treat for them hehehe

  14. tracylee says:

    no, Mr. Bond, I expect you to *squeeee*.

    [ 😀 Yeah, I’d go see this movie. I’d bring Her Schmoopness; it’d totally be a date night for us. I’m just that secure in my own cuddly badassitude that the prospect of Daniel Craig having puppy gigglefits in anamorphic widescreen carries absolutely… no… uhmm. 😐 Maybe I’ll think on this one a little more. – Ed.]

  15. “Spanish Lickquisition” had me laughing before I even saw the video! I want a pile of puppies, please! That was adorable.

  16. I like my men like I like my …. men…. covered in puppies!

    [ 😆 !! – Ed.]

  17. Birdcage, sign me up!

    I have a show opening this weekend and the hours are a killer. This was muchly needed and perfectly timed. I will take a nap between work and the theater, and I expect to be surrounded by itty bitty puppies within seconds. kthxbye!

  18. BiscuitMamma says:

    Wow–that Glenn Beck never misses an opportunity to lose it on camera, does he?

  19. Chihgirl says:

    What a great way to start my day and put a smile on my face. If everyone in the world could have a “swimming in puppies” moment at least once or twice a day, we’d be a happier world.
    Thanks for making my morning…(-:

  20. Chihgirl says:

    …and I LUVVV the little puppeh who drags the blanket around his head with it’s teeth…!!!!!

  21. Madame X says:

    Don’t know what is more heart-warming, watching that bunch of obviously happy, healthy, well-loved Golden puppies frolic, or seing a grown-up man give in to the delight of being smothered by said pile o’ pups. What a lovely way to start the day!

    And i loved the little guy at the top right, trying his/her best to pull the sheet from under the laughing man!

  22. Our chief weapon is surprise…surprise and giggles…giggles and surprise…. Our two weapons are giggles and surprise…and ruthless pawing…. Our *three* weapons are giggles, surprise, and ruthless pawing….and an almost fanatical devotion to the Qte…. Our *four*…no… *Amongst* our weapons…. Amongst our weaponry…are such elements as giggles, surprise…. I’ll come in again.

  23. Oh, no, not the comfy…PUP!

  24. Jimbeaux says:

    On what promises to be a marathon tough day for me, this was a great way to start. I shall keep the pile-o-puppies in mind!

  25. Melissa says:

    *is ded from the Qte*

  26. renaissance costumes says:

    Those pups are just sooo cute! 🙂 Even I myself cannot resist that cuddling.. 🙂

  27. You’ve got to love a guy that enjoys being swarmed by puppies. This made my week!

  28. FinnMacCool says:

    At least they didn’t tie him to a Comfy Chair first!! That’d been torture. 🙂

  29. Mrs. Capers says:

    I suspect we need a new name for being swarmed by things cute. Squarmed?

  30. baileysgrandmom says:

    Oh, does this bring back memories! My family used to raise Chihuahuas ( or “Ki-whooie-whooies” as a friend called them), and my favorite form of stress relief was sitting in the middle of a litter of tiny attack mice and letting them crawl all over me! Wonder where I can find an accessible litter of puppies now…

  31. SO JEALOUS. But a great pick-me-up in the morning. I love the little one tugging at the blanket too, heeeeeee.

  32. alskndfl;kasndlfn *ded*

  33. @kzgz – don’t forget piddling. Also collapsing in sleep suddenly and without warning.

  34. shannomo says:

    I know that wonderful feeling of being smother in puppy loveys. When I’ve been away from my puggies I always come in and lay on the floor and just let them attack! It’s always a giggling, sloppy wet lickfest! The puppy trying to tie him in the blanket was great too.

  35. Instant mood lift, right there…

  36. violetgreen says:

    “Uh-oh!” at 0:12 and **goosed** at 1:11.
    Wonder where the tugging puppies want to take him? Can I go too?

  37. Emerson says:

    Very cute, but I was scared it would be interrupted by camels. Whew!

    [Trust me, we’d never let that happen. Except for, well, you know. – Ed.]

  38. They are so cute! *3*

  39. LizzyBee says:

    I loved the Spanish Inquisition reference. In fact, made my day. Thank you.

  40. That man just added 5 years to his life! I want my puppy pile!!

  41. Katrina says:

    There really are no words for that sheer delight,or whatever one may call it….

  42. metsakins says:

    I need my geeky college friends and puppies right now. *happily reminises about doing silly walks*

  43. If I am very good for a very long time can I have a puppy pile? Please, Please, Please!

  44. *gasp* I want to have a pile of puppies leeking my face!!

  45. i’m laughing AND crying, togetherz. prosh!

  46. Mud Bug says:

    Why does the pup licking attack always seem to get more intense when we start laughing ??? Am I the only one that’s noticed this ?

    Uhhh… where’s the end of the line for the puppy attacks ?

  47. kzgz!

  48. Malinki says:


  49. That man belongs in the Men of Cute Overload Calendar!

    [Hard to print a video, though. 😐 – Ed.]

  50. I’ll come in again…

    for more qte of course!

  51. Release the hounds of hell!!!

    …What do you mean they’re out?

    …Ok, what’s plan B?

  52. Please Note … The more you giggle the more the puppies attack!

    IT is a vicious cycle… okay not a vicious cycle and slurpy cycle!

  53. Heaven exists. YouTube has video.

  54. LeAnn (not LeAnna) says:

    This is what happens when you put on the kibble-flavored aftershave.

  55. Copperbat says:

    That warmed my cockles. 😀

  56. LovesDogs says:

    I’m soooo jealous. I want piles of puppies to keees me!!!

  57. And I bet they still have that sweet, milky puppy breath too.

  58. Loved the video and the Monty Python references! This really cheered me up on a gloomy, rainy day.
    Yes, puppy therapy should be taken daily!

  59. @MudBug, it’s because they think you’re about to barf. 😛

  60. Someone needs to patent that as a cure for depression.
    And stress. And heartbreak. And Mondays. And…

  61. Heeeeeeeeee. That would tickle like crazy. No wonder he’s giggling. I love it!

  62. Peanut's Mama says:

    ENVY PARTY OF ONE!!! *raises hand*

    What I wouldnt give to be on the bottom of that doggie pile up!

    And that laff is CONTAGIOUS!

  63. Jerilyn says:

    Death by a thousand licks?

    @Beeny — Introducing … the Pups of Purgatory!

  64. Hon Glad says:

    Pupposterously cute.

  65. Peanut's Mama says:

    OK I have a stoopid technologically retarded Q that has nuthin to do w this post. HOW DO YOU GET THE LITTLE PICTURE TO SHOW ON YOUR POST PPL!!??!!??!!

  66. This is what I imagine heaven is like

  67. Birdcage says:

    @ Peanut’s Mama: It’s a secret. We could tell you, but then we’d have to have you set upon by a pile of licking, wriggling puppies.

  68. If that doesn’t bring a big smile to your face, there is something seriously wrong with your life. Best vid I’ve seen since forever. Color me jealous. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

  69. But have they got all the stuffing up one end?

    My fave bit is when the pup grabs him by the hair near the end, when he’s trying to sit up, and the other pup is yanking the sheet away!

    Hey, even Cerberus was a cute waggy puppy once.

  70. I especially love the look on his face at 1:12…

  71. MamaLana says:

    Oh my goodness, such cuteness!! Thanks, I needed that.

  72. After watching this, I immediately went out and laid down in my yard. Sadly, no pack of adorable, licking puppies showed up. I feel cheated.

  73. Aw man. I wish I had a bunch of cute golden retriever puppies crawling all over my face too.

  74. Where can I get some puppy pile therapy?? Pure joy! And silliness.

  75. For fishermen, pictures of large fish caught by somebody else are referred to as fish porn.

    Pictures of beautiful cakes or prepared dishes are food porn.

    This, this is prime, grade-A, pure, unadulterated puppy porn.

  76. @Peanut’s Mama: Have a look here:

  77. OMG! If everyone had access to this kind of treatment for five minutes a day, no one would ever need Prozac again.

  78. This is actually a new form of coercive interrogation. If you can’t get the information you need via waterboarding, you sometimes have to resort to PUPPYBOARDING! *dun dun duuuuun*

  79. Im going to go lay on my back in my yard and hope a bunch of puppies come to climb on me (fingers crossed)

  80. They’re like a pack of little Dugs (a la Up). ❤

  81. Why do I hear Eddie Izzard’s voice in this set up? “Very well then…”

    [Give him cake too! – Ed.]

  82. ……and the wonder of it all is that retriever puppehs never get tired, never ever….
    Mine went on like this All. Day. Long. (without a nap, either; I was relieved when he finally went to sleep at night, becuz I used to wonder it he COULD sleep……!)
    When I look back, it seemed all he did was: play, pee & poop, play, run, play, run,
    get into trouble, play some moar……. 😉
    (P.S. and chew stuff, enneything he could get his paws on….!)

  83. Flutterby says:

    Puppy bref along with all those keeses must be pure heaven!

  84. Paunchie says:

    Oh my gosh, that was terrific. I love to see grown up peoples get fits of giggles. How can you not get the giggles being mobbed by a pack of puppies?! Look at their little tails waggin and their little fat tum tums! AWWW

  85. Jiffknee says:

    I was wondering who was going to piddle first . . . puppehs or laughing man. That laugh is totally contagious, too (even though we probableh aren’t supposed to find him equally enjoyable, right?)

  86. Peanut's Mama says:

    Birdcage—-I would gladly deal with the wiggly lickety rolly polly pups…..EVEN IF YOU DIDNT TELL ME THE SECRET!

  87. Paunchie says:

    catch the look on the guy’s face when the pup grabs his hair. Hilarious.

  88. Peanut's mama says:


  89. Um, did anyone spot a ring? ‘Cause this guy’s after my own heart.


    My aunt’s golden retriever gave birth to 12 puppies when I was about 7 years old. We have tons of photos of me in mud puddles, covered head to toe in slop, surrounded by wriggling balls of fur. And then more pictures a few months later when they were almost old enough to be sold.

    Sigh. Best times of my life.

  91. Mary (the first) says:

    I’d take the puppehs and the giggling handsome man. Both. All, I should say.

  92. Well, if you’re gonna laugh so hard that you pee your pants, then this surely is the best, cutest, and most enjoyable way to get there (if only it was a pile of kittens…)!

  93. First of all: “Lickquisition” is genius. Lol!

    Secondly (if no one’s said it already) I’m seeing a whole new business for these challenging times: Puppy licking stores. Having a bad day? Need a picker-upper? Want the best laugh in years? Come to Puppy Lickers and let us work you over!

    I’m so there.

  94. Sorry, Amy (#88), he’s wearing a gold ring on his left ring finger!

  95. aquasaline says:

    me next! me next! me next!!!!
    (@ Marie you mean a ‘licker -upper’?)

  96. ^ I do indeed! I stand corrected. ;D

  97. Sinamon says:

    two words:

    PUPPY BREATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the sweetest on earth.

  98. Oh what I would give to trade places with this lucky person 😦

  99. The Dutchess of Cupcake says:

    I’m pretty sure there’s nothing better than a pile of puppies. I thought maybe cupcakes, but those are too short-lived. Nope, puppies it is.

  100. if there is a heaven this is what it is going to be like…giant puppy piles everywhere!

  101. FurBucketNanny says:

    *Raises Hand* Sign me up!

    I fostered a Mama dog who had a litter of 9 Bloodhound/Rottweiler/Travelling Sales Dog puppies several years ago, and I miss being bombarded like this SO MUCH!!!!!

  102. redbird57 says:

    Never have I wanted to not be allergic to dogs more than I do right now.

  103. Queen of Dork says:

    I couldn’t watch that and not laugh!

  104. BethSaysBaltimore says:

    I would pay a hundred dollars for ten minutes of that.

  105. JennyBenny says:

    They say that laughter is the bed medicine…well i bet this puppy treatment along with stress relief and a healty diet could be the next cure for Cancer. and i am serious!!! I found my heart full of abundant joy but also sort of longing for such a great sustained belly laugh.

  106. chanpon says:

    This just in! Man tragically snorgled TO DEATH by a ferocious pack of licking puppies.

  107. MoonCatty says:

    Oh… I know the feeling of being beset by a pack of pups!

    When I was a kid we raised Old English Sheepdogs and our litter of 8 puppies (at about 8 weeks of age so they were of decent size and energy) managed to tackle me, and once on the ground you are toast! Or kibble… as it were…

    It’s true! The more you giggle the more they play, pounce and lick… I became weak with laughter and it took the longest time just to get on my feet again.

    Yes… yes! ‘Puppy Pile On Therapy’ is the BEST!

  108. Laughter attracts puppies. Warm face-licking puppies induce laughter. It’s the perfect equation! =D

    Man, where was this when I had my nervous breakdown?

  109. His “Hey oh!” at the end when one of the pups does something…. less than polite cracks me up!

  110. Cutest infestion ever!

  111. ack! I meant cutest infestation ever!

  112. NOMTOM (Lickquisition) and BrianW (puppyboarding) win teh Interwebs. It is offisch.

  113. What I wouldn’t do to be him right now!
    When I was about 16, my brother’s dog had a litter of nine 1/2 Alaskan Malamute 1/2 Chow puppies in our barn. Every afternoon after school I would take my blanket out there and let them do this to me! We often all fell asleep together there. I remember my mom coming to wake me up in the evening to come in the house, many times:) I miss being swarmed by a pack o furry puppies. Oh, and giggling does attract puppies!

  114. Puppy attack + Spanish Inquisition reference has made my day!! I’d be giggling uncontrollably too. And it reminds me SO strongly of one of JD’s best fantasies on Scrubs:

  115. MommaMackie says:


  116. lawgeekgurl says:

    Release the hounds!

  117. DillPig says:

    I have just lost my darling fur child Sophie, who was in her 20th year, and my heart aches. This was just the thing to soften the pain for a while.

  118. Subhangi says:

    What I wouldn’t give to be buried in a pile o’ wagging tails and wriggleh puppeh butts! SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!!

  119. *warm fuzzies to DillPig* CO is good for making the hurt hurt a little less. I’m sorry for your loss.

    Marie, Japan has Cat Cafes where you can go be friends with a cat if you can’t have one of your own. I say we should have Pup Cafes as well!

  120. I can almost smell the puppy breath!

  121. aliesha says:

    look at all their lil’tails wagging! oooooohhhh!! 😀

  122. DaddyDoggy says:


  123. Awww! *wants*… /adds to wish list for birthday.. -Pile o’ warm fuzzy bellied pups to gently wrestle with-

  124. superbunny says:

    Look closely – there’s a turd right near his left elbow and he’s not even aware!

  125. summersun says:

    What a perfect way to spend the day!

  126. OMG PUPPIES !!111!1!!!!!!!!!!!11!!

  127. Ok, a guy who lets a pile of adorable puppies lick him and he enjoys it is a real man!

  128. That was terrific – set me up for the whole day! 🙂

  129. If all of the leaders of the countries in the world were FORCED to have this type of therapy regularly (in a group setting, mind you), we would never have a war again. This should be required at all UN meetings.

  130. OMG, Life is so completely wonderful. Puppies bring so much joy, they need us and we need them.

  131. RebeckaVioletta says:

    Omg PUPPY LOVE ATTACK! this is now my weapon of choice.

    Also, is there going to be a the Men of Cute Overload Calendar? (say yes….*tries to use mindcontroling superpowers*)

  132. kawibear says:

    If only we could bottle that and sell it… puppy pile for only $14.95. Guaranteed to induce giggles!

  133. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    aaaaaaaaaaaand how come nobody thought of this ever-so nearly ancient but definitively useful song here????

  134. Tindi – then this is where we definitely should follow the ways of Japan. 🙂

    The Pup Cafe’s menu can also offer a variety of breeds. For example I would love to be attacked by 2 dozen baby bulldogs. The rollier-pollier the better!

  135. This is why I can’t exercise with the dogs in the house. Because when I lie down on the floor to do crunches, they think I’m playing. And I am beset by two 100-lb.-plus doggies who still go nuts at the sound of laughing. 🙂

  136. @DillPig – so sorry for your loss. 20 years! You and Sophie must have gone through much together.

  137. Peanut's Mama says:

    Marie-OMG @ rolly polly bollgoggies!!!!!!! I SO need some of that!

  138. Peanut's Mama says:

    Um, thats supposed to be bulldoggoes. Dang dogs melted my brain to mush!

  139. Peanut's Mama says:

    GGRRRR B-U-L-L-D-O-G-G-I-E-S. I’m done. Stick a fork in me!

  140. That is a dream of mine. To be covered in puppehs. And huffing the warm puppeh smells. Eh.

  141. LovesDogs says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE puppeh breath.

  142. oohlalalar says:

    This is how I want to die. Puppy-Lieeek!

  143. jennifer says:

    I want this to happen to me!

  144. CathyDee says:

    OK, now I have the Mel Brooks song from “History of the World, Part 1” (or is that 2?) going through my head: The Lickquisition (let’s begin), The Lickquisition (look out, sin) . . . .

    A pretty good earworm, actually.

  145. That must be what heaven is like.

  146. Peanut’s Mama – yeah, totally!

    Bet they can handle us both at the same time with no problem. Would love that! ;D

  147. Mplsmom says:

    What better way to end the day than watch lots of smooches and a very appreciative receiver. That giggle of his was so sweet.
    Who can resist the sweet breath of puppies.
    So very true…the licks become more earnest when the giggling gets louder.
    I have to save this and watch it when the day becomes a little bit much!

  148. snurfles says:

    I want to BE him!!! I couldn’t stop giggling and he is obviously in total heaven. What a wonderful vid to start the day!

  149. BStrange says:

    “sitting in the middle of a litter of tiny attack mice” + video of lickquisition & caption = my brain just melted out my left ear. In little heart-and-smiley-face-shaped globs. Thanks baileysgrandmom and NTMTOM for that. 😆

  150. How could you not love that?! And I love puppy breath!

  151. This is the key to world peace.

  152. Noelegy says:

    DJ: now I have “Heaven Is A Place On Earth” by Belinda Carlisle running through my brain. Wouldn’t that have been the perfect background music?

  153. He won’t be laughing when one of them pisses on his face lol

  154. Sumeet S says:

    Yay!! Thanks for putting the video up, CO!! (And uberthanks for the great Flying Circus ref hahaha)

    This is how I wanna go. 🙂

  155. This is how I want to die!
