Bichon, Please

Welcome to this edition of The Sunday Wrap-Up. “You’re a baby kitten, I’m a baby otter! Let’s be friends” was the most popular post this week. It even showed up on The Daily Show this week! So you know it’s good. Nipping at the heels of the #1 slot was “I Cannot BELIEVE I Have This Stupid Haircut“! [applause]

So to celebrate the fro-tastic Bichon Frisé, I hereby give you:


Yay! Paws up!

Mrs. Doggie by Mrs. Doggie. I looove this one too.



  1. oh goodness

  2. What o what happened to that dog! I think someone got a little over eager with the easter egg dye…

  3. We can take solace in the fact that dogs can’t recognise themselves in mirrors… *pets the happy little doggy*

  4. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    I fully expect to see this little doggy turn up at “Monday Night Football” waving a “John 3:16” sign.

  5. lurkingsmirk says:

    wahahahaha…the happy look on its face is killing me.

  6. Half bichon/half Peep 🙂

  7. Brandi7920 says:

    /gasp!!!! That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen!! BWAHAHAHA Can’t stop laughing!

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

    @ Aerliss & everybody else:

    I have, for several years now, kept one cartoon where a society maven human person is walking her canine companion downtown beside the store windows…The doggeh looks in the mirror-effect store windows & becomes amazed & disgusted.

    His comment: “OH MY GOSH!! I AM
    one of those little floofy dogs!!!”

  9. Bunnyfluffs says:

    lol ..this is just.. just…


  10. Bichon Bozo, is that you?

  11. What a cute pup-dog!!

  12. Ohhhhhhhh – someone got into the last of the Easter Peeps!

  13. That’s just not okay.

  14. Iris (yes, that Iris,) says:

    It’s weird, but somehow all these added hair dyes and stuff make him look like a pony in the very oddest of ways.

  15. ssssssqqqqqqquuuuuuueeeeeeeee!!!!!11!!ELEVEN!!!1!!

    What in the world did she use to dye that dog, and how can I use it to turn my shih tzu green with orange polka-dots?

  16. Pup Says: Lady GaGa , You’ve been SCHOOLED !!!!!

  17. not a fan of hair dye on dogs, but… OMG HIS FEET 😀 like a cartoon animal sorta.


  18. that is the happiest dog EVER. i think he likes his new look.

  19. If I had a bichon I would dye a red lightning bold on his face like Bowie.

  20. Thats so cute, happy hippy doggie

  21. She is the most super awesome dog of all time ever. Twinkie-chan, Pyza, and Mrs. Doggie are the flickr Holy Trinity.

  22. LOL This is like one of those carinival stuffed animals you win.

  23. Omg, it’s a Bichon Popple!

  24. Although Her Floofiness seems OK with this, it’s still seven kinds of wrong .

  25. cubbybutt says:

    oh for the love of god this is just horrendous!

  26. I think you meant “Weeeeeeee!” in the hovertext… ;o)

  27. kittensnotkids says:

    why would you DO this to…anyone? poor little goggie. But the little Bichon looks SO happy and pleased with himself….

  28. I wanna know what’s going on with that dog in the background in the first pic. Whatever his deal is, he’s obviously not impressed.

  29. looks like he got into the Peep mix

  30. Dude, that dog looks like he’s been taking happy pills or something. He’s waaay too pleased with the new look.

  31. Oh Em GEE!

  32. Can’t fell bad for her, she is way too happy with herself. Next time we see her, she will be in a Ramone’s shirt!

  33. Why dogs attack?

  34. So does this pup actually have paws, or are they just fuzzy nubbins?

  35. Pup-pup is hapee because he/she has been fussed over and brushed and told how wonderful they are. They have no idea.

  36. fifthsonata says:

    Did I just smoke something bad?!

  37. fifthsonata says:

    evidently I did, I hit enter too soon…
    ….”or did we suddenly flash back to 1970?”

  38. Flutterby says:

    @fifthsonata…you didn’t smoke anything bad, it was some good sh**, man! Poor puppeh thinks he’s bootiful. All I could think was *BOOF*

  39. Dreamspinner Cheryl says:

    Cannot. Be. Real. No way. Damn those 60’s flashbacks……

  40. lol, this is so wrong it’s hilarious. I’ll never understand why someone would do this to their dog, but whatever floats your boat I guess. The look on it’s face is priceless…ignorance is bliss. lol.

  41. omg…….that hair stylist shouldn’t be allowed to touch another dog ever!!! AAAAHHHHH!!!!!

  42. This is just wrong and not cute at all. Poor taste to do this to your pet just for your entertainment.

  43. Kumorino says:

    …totally looks like the toys from the 1980’s called Popples…

  44. 😯 Why did they do that to that poor dog? 😯

  45. Jimi Hendricks in his own personal reincarnation hell????

  46. I noticed the black lips and thought GOTH! but then I saw the rest….

    and did anyone else notice poor doggie has a brazilian? Youch.

    Still, that is the cutest, happiest face ever. Lots of kisses to you sweetie.

  47. Geaux Ghoti says:

    The oh-so happy look on that puppy’s face proves one thing… Ignorance truly is bliss…

  48. naturalady says:

    Only those people who report when they have been snatched, messed with, and returned by aliens know what this dog really feels like. Attention is attention, no matter how demeaning.

  49. ithinkiatetoomuch says:

    Yes, noticed the Brazilian too. Why wax a puppy? Actually I don’t want to know.

    [That probably wasn’t cosmetic, actually. Spay & neuter your pets! – Ed.]

  50. Re: the Brazilian treatment – is that not natural on dogs? I’m more of a Pocket Pets type of person; I don’t know too much about dogs. But my dog niece (sheltie/border collie mix) has a natural Brazilian going on like this one – I just assumed some puppies didn’t have hair down there.
    But OMG those paws are out of control! I’m not sure whether to be horrified or mesmerized by the bright colors and cute puppy face.

  51. Omg, she looks like a snow cone! I know it is wrong, but it is kind of cute. And really, does it look like she minds?

  52. Katie Leigh says:

    I wanna say there is a Pokemon with these markings….

  53. Nightmare.

  54. I don’t know why, but this picture gives me the creeps. Could be the depressed lookin’ pup in the background of pic 1.

  55. Oh, heavens. At least the dog looks happy? Perhaps she is fulfilling her life’s dream of being cotton candy.

  56. Copperbat says:

    awwww lookit the cute pup…. wait, wth? Brazillian? Lol most dogs are hairless or very nearly so down there. ;p

  57. Flavia A. says:

    Lmao. That’s too funny. And the dog looks great too.

  58. Oh, the humanity…

  59. MaggieBee says:

    OMG the scroll down yellow paw reveal made me DED! DED I TELL YOU!! 😀

  60. I really want to be offended, but that dog looks so damn happy.

  61. Re Brazilian; It’s not waxed, it’s either shaved or natural. It’s simple for cleanliness.

    Re Dyeing methods; Simple food colouring if you want to play with your dog. Either go for an all over tint and rinse their bath with a few drops, or use a soaked cloth or sponge (and gloves on your human less you want coloured hands) to apply the dye to a single area.

    And for those of you who laugh at the Bichon Show cut, go get a life. It takes a hell of a lot of work to get a Bichon to that state and keep it that way. I keep my Bichon in a puppy/pet cut because the show cut is just way too much work. But I’ve dyed him blue before, and on walks, everyone loves him.

  62. WHAT? I don’t even! I am never doing that to my bb!

  63. Re: Brazilian – My Shih Tzu gets really matted down there if it’s not kept nice and short (Dog licks area, dog bites area to scratch itches, dog ends up with a portable bird’s nest in which to stow various debris picked up whilst gallivanting around the back yard). And yeah, it’s shaved, not waxed. Groomers appointments are traumatizing enough as it is!

  64. Subhangi says:

    Eh… not so sure about the dye job, but dayyum that’s a happy puppy!

  65. No.

  66. Margaret says:

    That is evil…

  67. Wow, someone went a leetle crazy with the Paas! (and paws)

    The brazilian is from a spay most likely. My female cats had it after they got spayed.

  68. Lula Mae says:

    I am sure doggie’s “mommy” has a matching hairstyle.
    (and if you think this is bad, just google creative grooming)

  69. TrixandSam says:

    As Sashy notes, the “Brazilian” is NOT a wax job. When a Bichon (or like dog) is groomed, the areas around the teats and genitals are shaved for hygienic and comfort reasons. The hair in those areas can become matted quickly and that can be painful.

    As I said in the Fro Bros post, my Bichons would smother me in my sleep if I tried this on them, but this little girl sure looks happy! (And there is nuthin’ like a happy Bichon!)

  70. yeeah about the “brazilian”… my dog has that naturally. it’s not that uncommon.

  71. Poow wittew puppus! I can hear him, “Now where did I leave my dignity?”

  72. Oops! Her…mah bad

  73. Elisha B. says:

    Looks like a a Pokemon…….shaved belly an’ all!! Too funny!

  74. Bichon Frisé? Meg, you have killed me. I am ded.

  75. @Elisha B, I’m glad I’m not the only one that looked at this and immediately said, “Pikachu, I choose you!” Needs more yellow, the the pink cheeks and bright yellow just did it for me.

  76. Cute dog! He seems to go along with the flow…oh the embarrassment!
    Little pink ears are cute but looks like a clown.

  77. -giggle- -snort-

  78. Is there a dog inside there?

  79. Poor little dog – that is just horrendous.

  80. Oh my… a bit scary that one…. could’ve done without all the dye…

  81. oh my…. a bit scary that one… could’ve done without the dye….

  82. OK – that’s just wrong! And why oh why is the tiny little belly shaved!

  83. It’s a cute dog, but I just don’t get the colour, sorry. Anyways, a happy dog it seems 🙂

  84. southern bell says:

    As the proud owner of 2 bichons all I can say is WOW! As docile and happy as they are, I really think they would try to attack…lol Tye dye just isn’t a good look for a cute, fluffy, white dog. (sigh)

  85. He could have been part of the Spice Girls… hehe

  86. It’s Afro-Ken!

  87. Why would you do that to this PROSH pup?

  88. I really want to be all “ohmygawdwhywouldyoudothattoyourdog?!”, but the EXPRESSION on that dog’s face won’t allow it. If she’s happy with it, I’m happy for her.

  89. I hope this was for easter or to match an outfit or clown day at Park City Mountain Resort.

  90. No XCU of the cute pink tummy-pooch? I’m disappointed.

  91. It’s like a peep and a cotton ball did the nasty.

  92. One year my mom’s next door neighbors dyed their standard (normally white) poodle green for Christmas and tied red bows in his hair. When I walked in the house my mom asked me if I had seen the green poodle. At first I thought she was hitting the bubbly a little early till I looked out and saw the poor dog myself!

    [Anybody else have “Quiche Lorraine” in their head now? B-52s? Earworm… – Ed.]

  93. *whimper* His face is identical to my bichon who just passed away very suddenly a couple of months ago. We never groomed him in the “show” bichon style (i.e. trapezoid head or ‘fro) but this made me laugh AND miss him so much.

  94. I hate myself for not owning this dog.

  95. Poor doggie. Does puppy want her dignity back? I think she does. (Have to admit that the paws do crack me up tho.)

  96. I can’t believe no one has said this yet, but his paws look like they’ve been dipped in pee. It’s cute how much the dog likes it though, looks like my cat after I give her a bath.

  97. Liz, you need to drink more water.

  98. Where are that doggetts toesies?

  99. Haha.

    This dog wouldn’t be so happy if he knew how ridiculous he looked!

  100. rubber duck says:

    Oh my God.

  101. Best. Title. EvAH!

  102. This dog reminds me of when I see someone who had to go and paint a gorgeous and economically horrible Hummer pink. Or when some of the nicest Cadillac cars get subdued by a passion pink color for the AVON obsessed women selling their cosmetics.

    Cute in a carnival gone wrong kind of way. It makes me think that it should have a stick stuffed upwards and eaten like cotton candy. *Come here, Munchy! Good dog.*In addition, I cannot even see any signs of his paws or much of anything. Sit him on top of a cake at a Cotillion or have him rotating on top of a disco ball at a dance.

  103. I too have a Bichon – her name is Crissy and I seriously thought about turning her PINK for Easter, but then I thought better of it….. How would she look a few days after the “do?” Bichons are the sweetest dogs in the world and this one looks lovely. The owner clearly must care about the dog as that happy face can’t be faked. I like the pink, but the yellow…..not so sure.

  104. my boyfriend refuses to believe it’s a real pup.
    somebody, convince him that is’ OBVIOUSLY not a stuffed animal!!!!

  105. Mrs. McGinty says:

    Oh Wow. Puppers is so happy with her poppity colors, it makes me smile to look at her! And her momma, Mrs. Doggie, has a magic touch with critters of the four-footed variety, usually in a far more restrained, classical style. On her Flickr page, she has gorgeous animals of both doggy and kitty variety, all in white, each groomed so painstakingly I’m still not quite sure they aren’t all expensive stuffed toys. Beee-yoooo-teeee-ful.

  106. blackmercury says:

    I should give my Bichon a new makeover too!!

  107. stopthesmell says:

    haaahahah I could not stop laughing ha.. this is great.

  108. gooeyctr says:

    (pax to Falco)

    Come on and ‘tock me, Bichon Frisé!
    Bichon Frisé, Bichon Frisé, oh oh!
    Bichon Frisé, Bichon Frisé, oh oh!
    Bichon Frisé, Bichon Frisé,
    Oh oh oh, Bichon Frisé!

  109. I shall call him Sparkles(rainbow bright cartoon) LOL Reminds me of the little white thing that use to be on show..dont know if name is right.

  110. brittany says:

    yay!!! i want one! i love bichons!

  111. Doggy ‘Do reaches EPIC new heights:

    I am amazed.

  112. I’m pleased to note that I’m not the only one who thought, “It’s Afro-Ken!!” when I saw the picture. Yay Afro-Ken!

  113. tamibrat says:

    Its the girlie doggy version of Ronald McDonald.
    I blame the glaring yellow feet for the association.

  114. How could you? This is just wrong!

  115. Angelcake says:

    1. Adorable in the most wrong way possible.

    2. First thought was I used to have a doll like this named Poochie as a little kid. White dog, Pink ears and I think pink feet but the yellow works. I wonder if this was Poochie inspired.

  116. What a dog hairstyle. Uuumm I don’t think I could do this to my pups. I have poodles, but man oh man that’s going to take some time to come out.

  117. Vivian says:

    Does no one realize that this is a costume? lol

  118. definitely a popple.
