This Obesity Epidemic is Out of Control

Admittedly, Mister Sack of Po-ta-toes wasn’t a fan of exercise.

However, when he started to lose the muscle memory in those lazy bones, even he knew there was a problem.

It’s just baby fluff, Michael Y.



  1. Such thick luxurious fur… I could snorgle him ALL DAY!

  2. Of the blorptitude.

  3. librarianjessica says:

    Yeah, not a fan of of the commentary on this one.

  4. The tummy of him!

  5. A classic example of a shiba pup with a snoutbelly: its snout is equally as soft as its belly, common with most cats but with dogs somewhat rare…shiba inu pups are little generators of supercharged warmth & fuzziness.

  6. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    …um…while there *IS* a bit of baby fluff….I’ll hazard the dangerous opinion that it *might not* be ALL baby FLUFF …..

    but it’s mighty cute.

  7. EEEEEEEEE! Lookit the baby chow! I must bury my face in all that fuzz!

    …Despite the fact that most dogs make my eyes go red and itchy, my nose start running and generally make me feel like I’ve swollen up to match this puppers in terms of blorpiness. *sigh*

  8. Let’s just call him da’ Master of Blorpness.

  9. Omg. This pup is so cute it makes me want to cry cause I can’t hold it!!

  10. Who needs a turkey when you can snuggle with this butterball on Thanksgiving?

  11. awwww so snuggly cute!

  12. oh my god sooo cute and round!! i loff eet!

  13. The fluff! The chub! [ded]

  14. Yummy tummy!

  15. What a little darling! Everything about this little lovebug, from the button eyes, round tummy and curly tail is unbearably cute. Love love love this puppy.

  16. I just went “aheeheehee!” after seeing that belly. 🙂

  17. When he finally loses that puppeh chub, you just know he’ll look down and be like OMG WHAT ARE THOSE LITTLE STUBBY THINGS WITH THE WIGGLING PARTS before realizing they’re his feets. 🙂

    Also, I love his general teddy-bearness in the second picture, and I would very much like to blow a raspberry on his tummy.

  18. “You ******s! You ate Kenny!”

  19. Blorp, blorp, blorp. Those chubbeh legs look practically vestigial.

  20. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    only if yew git there,
    b’4 the REST of us get there!!!!! 🙂

  21. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

  22. Elge Premeau says:


    Also, thumbs up on Theresa’s response.

  23. I do believe that is Augustus Gloop.


  25. omnomnomnom! I could eats him. No, wait, he’s too cute, I will just love him. ❤

  26. (The Original) Mel says:

    Must snorgle blorpy dog belleh. Ehn. Ehn.

  27. *Waves at pals from the Moderation Lounge, to which I’ve been banished for the past 3 hours*


  28. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Mare: our group condolences on tha whole itchy&scratchy bit.

    Does it help a’tall, to know, that THAT is the ackshual REASON which prompted Her Megginess to CREATE Cuteoverload?????

  29. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    most excellent.

  30. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    Hi Nikki. My name is Leslie and I’m a Moderashunholic

    (aka it happens to moi fairleh frequentleh).

    (sympathetic, tragic, angst-filled sigh)

  31. Btw Guyz this is a chow 🙂 barely 2mnts old 🙂

  32. Teresa in KC says:

    He’s not fat…..he’s fluffy. 🙂

  33. That second picture kind of looks like me in the morning. I wish I had someone to hold me up like that.

  34. I love that bit! He’s a funny dude.

  35. warrior rabbit says:

    Really? Huh. I think the hovertext is hysterical.

  36. He’s the Sumo wrestler of puppies! And both are adorable!

  37. Sir Roly-Poly, at your service.

  38. Viola de Lesseps says:

    Hippo walking on chopsticks–bwahahahahahahahaha!! Genius.

  39. I would happily be a couch potato with this adorable pudgester!! Let the snorgling commence!

  40. I love cats says:

    Oh, this is a Shiba pup? Shiba Inu are such cute dogs.

  41. I love cats says:

    I agree! Tis the fluffytude, he’s just very fuzzy!

  42. I love cats says:

    On a second though: maybe he is a little chubby, but still adorable!

  43. AWWWWWWWWWWWWW hooow cute.. Is that some breed or?

  44. Do we have a clue as to his/her heritage? Chow? Shiba (looks a little chubby for a Shiba, but hey,) “Youth Wants to Know!” Love the little critter!

  45. Sumo wrestlers are adorable?
    I never actually thought of them that way but OK 😉

  46. tissue for your issue?

  47. bookmonstercats says:

    I don’t know Shibas, but chows have little teddy bear ears on the side of their heads and curly tails, and they tend to be stocky, like Sir Blorpalot here, so I vote for chow.

  48. introducing the ONOtranslator2000© (aka “ONO in, CO out”)!

     ONO IN, CO OUT 

    The ONOtranslator2000© speeds comments through moderation in a snap!

    “ONO in, CO out!”

  49. up a little ways in the comments, the owner says it’s a chow, barely 2 months old

  50. more like Augustus Blorp!

  51. I love Mister Sack of potatoes! Cute…I love his eyes. Looks like a teddy bear in the 2nd photo. He is the perfect size.

  52. Thats funny. & Sumo wresters are not so cute. ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

  53. Good one Lisa! 😆

  54. Go cry, emo kid. 😛


  55. *looks over top of glasses*
    *presses lips together, nodding head once*
    “Yes, yes, that belly is coming along nicely.”
    *makes note on clipboard*

  56. This isn’t meant to be condescending at all, but it sounds like obesity is perhaps a problem in your life or someone you know? Regardless, being selective when choosing which jokes offend you makes you look like a “bad” person in some ways.

  57. Can we “tock” about those adorabuhl puppy ‘tocks!

  58. We all live in a Beagle SUbmarine
    A Beagle Submarine
    a Beagle Submarine

    Well yes it did have to be said at some point .

  59. Ooooops Wrong Comment stream

  60. He’s not fat! It’s all that fur! It makes him look…. poofy. 🙂

  61. SOUP!!!!

  62. I vote for Chow , When I was knee high to a grasshopper, the lady across the road had a Chow. I think….they are Chinese, or somaht.*
    *to be pronounced in a Lancashier accent – Think Monty Python “That were luxury”

  63. Math:
    Stubbular legs + curly tail + blorp = I AM DED

    Soooo adorable!

    Puppeh looks like he has the same stomach blorp my orange tabby had as a kitten. He had this barrel shaped stomach for about 3 months. He got dewormed twice, but was still barrel shaped until he grew into (around?) it. Now he is a sleek tabbeh.
    Vet told me some kittens are round for a while and will grow out of it. But he looked pretty funny for a while! 🙂

  64. Rather than that old chestnut ‘shopped’ I do think this picture is slightly distorted.
    I mean give the poor fluff ball a chance, he’ll grow up with isshoos.

  65. Now how did I guess I would be moderated? It’s the use of Sh***ed, isn’t it. 🙂

  66. Guyz its a puppy chow chow.. thats my puppy 2 months old

  67. The 2nd photo reminds me of the red panda photo. Like he’s a monster and he’s gonna getcha!

  68. What a little bruiser, heee. I think we’re gonna have to see a pic with the blue tongue showing(ks).

  69. I just wanna lie on a coushe all day with him, snugglin’ and watching TV. Don’t care if I get nothing done. So there! 🙂

  70. The Cute Avenger says:

    I feel your pain, my friend, except that it’s cats who do that for me, and dogs to a more milder degree (usually just the runny nose and sneezings). In a perfect world, we could snorgle with our furry friends of choice all day, sans allergic reactions!

  71. Exactly LOL

  72. LeAnn (not LeAnna or Lee Ann) says:

    I can’t say anything because I’m at work and there are clients in the lobby, but my brain is screaming “OOOOOOOH, da tummy!!”

  73. Well put, Scout C! Now pass that pup my way…

  74. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    wow Sharpy.
    I di-unt realize,
    that I created a need for a SPECIFIC Moderashun ATTACHMENT gadget.

    so sowwy.

    If it’s of any consolation (?), my college Major and two Minors were 3 different foreign languages, so the whole wordplay & grammarosity thing is IN THA DNA in the Hard Drive!!!!

  75. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    yeh that DOES sound like a GREAT gig; you’re absolutely spot-on!!!

  76. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    quite nice, chanpon!

  77. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:


    Looks a little chubby for …ANYTHING
    (except perhaps for a hippobottomus)!!!!!

    (bwa ha ha?)

  78. Actually, it looks more like a Chow-Chow to me…

  79. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    You’re carrying on Nurse Steffie’s duties, very nicely indeed!!!

    (QueenofDork, for any who aren’t already aware of her wondrous nursing talents)

  80. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    My brain HEARS your brain. Does that help any? 🙂

  81. *giggling* 🙂

  82. Summat. Nowt wrong wi’ that, my lad. 😛

  83. Yikes! Does it hear my brain, too?

  84. now we just have to put the moderashun moderation machine through the same training (with a masters in ONO-speak) and you won’t have to wait to read your comments at all!

  85. Wait, someone does care that they get nothing done? :mrgreen:

  86. What breed of pouch is this? very sweet looking….

  87. “Knee-high to a grasshopper” doesn’t evoke the intended mental picture for me. Instead of seeing a wee young’un, I see a huge grasshopper. 😯

  88. Sure it’s not a hippotopomous? I forget which has odd toes and which has even toes…

  89. Yes, and my brain is very afraid.

  90. Somewhere up there, the owner says it’s a two month old chow.

  91. Floofularity, Floofularity.

  92. Lewis n' Clark says:

    what?! the nerve….

  93. S*N*E*R*K

  94. Wow! A post of mine has made it into the C. O. varnic….vurnack….slang bank! Thanks, O NO! This guy, I’d have to call him a heapo’bellehfluf. 🙂

  95. Um.. yeah.. stop talking.

  96. I second KatieZ. That’ll be enuf outta you.

  97. 😀

  98. M*A*S*H Chaplain reference-very nice!

  99. WAWAAAAHHHHHH! now i want to listen to belle and sebastien and drop out of art school!!!

  100. hey, you don’t have to apologize! i was trying to tease you AND honor you! i figure if i have to decipher 400 O NO posts a day, i can have a little fun! that’s a lot of work for a girl who majored in only one language, which is sort of like a fish majoring in swimming, n’est-ce pas?

  101. He is just so insanely cute in his soft pudgy roundness! I want to hold him and rub that belly and chase him around the room with squeaky toys and everything!!!

  102. It’s a Chow pup!

  103. It’s okay, little Sharpy! No need to cry… (Or as my niece likes to day, “Do I need to call a waaa-mbulance for you?”) 🙂

  104. Judging by the bowling ball this cutie pie has evidently swallowed, Chow is the perfect name of breed for this little guy. Oink. (and Squee)

  105. i guess. maybe a bowl of ice cream would help.

  106. Excellent. Ice cream always helps! Thanks for taking such great care of us!

  107. To quote my favorite feline Garfield:
    “I’m not fat…..I’m fluffy!”
    Sweet Pup!!!!

  108. How about a pa-sickie?

  109. 😆 Denise, I think I like “heapo’bellehfluf” even better!

  110. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    oui, bien sur 🙂

  111. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    One of the 79 reasons why I think you’re probably an inneresting hooman bean.

  112. Add long front teef and what you have here is a Groundhoggle!

  113. *droopy ears* Why so mean? Some people don’t like those kind of jokes. They’re entitled to their opinion.

  114. “Da Master of Blorpness!” HAHA! Awesome.

  115. Reminded me of this:

  116. Peanut's mama says:


  117. Bloop! Blorp!

    I could eat him all up, but I’d have to invite a few friends to help.

    Bonus points for making my brain go “Po-ta-toes” in hobbit accent for the rest of the day, too, of course.

  118. Aww! Moderation station! Because I said “hobbit,” no doubt – couldn’t be “blorp”!

  119. Lewis n' Clark says:

    Blorpy McBlubberkins

  120. He’s not fat… he just graduated, he majored in horizontal and minored in vertical.

  121. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    “moderation station” reminds me of “conjunction junction”…

    ABC Afterschool Specials
    1970s Edition

  122. I am going to have to use that one!

  123. I prefer chocolate, myself.

  124. Ok, HOW COME nobody has used this yet???!

    “IT’S SO FLUFFY!!!!”

  125. Most snorgabuhl puppeh on the planet surely?!

  126. No need to worry. It’s just….


    Puppy fat.


  127. (sing to the tune of Carly Simon’s “Anticipation”): “…in Moderayshun; in Moderayayshun; it’s making me wait..dum dum da dum dum dah dah dee” etc.

  128. he was so cute. i miss to have dogs :((
    he is my second fav nxt to BOO

  129. I’m kind of concerned on this one. Distended tummies can be signs of intestinal parasites.
