One small, stubbular step for a pup

…One giant step for chub-tubbular pupkind

2-week old Miles is strutting around like he owns the place says Sender-Inner Kirsten M.



  1. Christopher says:

    AT AT Dachsund!!!

  2. That puppy looks older than two weeks. And cuter.

  3. muttluver says:

    I just sat here for several minutes looking into the puppeh’s eyes.

    Cutest thing that’s been here in a while. 😀

  4. Ohhh jeepahs. Too cute.
    It’s Slinky dog from Toy Story.

  5. (The Original) Mel says:

    Pup’s face says, “Oh no you di-int!”

  6. What a little lovebug! Perfect face, but it looks like Miles may need to pull his socks up…

  7. “2-week old Miles is strutting around like he owns the place says Sender-Inner Kirsten M. ”

    I just want to know what makes Kirsten think he doesn’t ?
    Seriously , with that face he owns anything he wants to !

  8. O.k. how aware am I ? I just noticed my name said mudbig instead of mudbug !
    Now I’m wondering how long that’s been that way ?????

  9. Go for the chubby legs! It might be our only chance of stopping them!

  10. OMG!!! He can own anything he wants!!!! He owns my heart!!! 🙂 I just LOVE Doxies!!!!!

  11. I am guessing it is a typo and he is probably 12 weeks. 😉 Most puppies are just opening their eyes at around two weeks! (And what adorable ones this little pup has.)

  12. Mz Julia says:

    Yay! Finally, a Dox-Hound on the CO! 😀

  13. Juniper Jupiter says:

    Am I the only one who thinks these kind of Dachshunds have hoomin eyes? 😀

  14. Oh noes, another victim of Serious Pet Syndrome!

  15. SoCalSis says:

    Been awhile, anyways. We wondered, but didn’t want to ask, don’cha’know… Thought maybe there were some Life Transitions going on, Explorations, maybe… Or maybe it just meant that was one BIG MudBug!

  16. Oh my gah. Pudgy legs? Slight baroo expression? Huge, soul-searing eyes? I am struck ded by my unfulfillable need to pick him up and snorgle him frantically. And also by the dangerous adorableness, of course.

  17. cute face

  18. Ali-baba says:

    Oh my snot! That is one singularly scintillating look that puppeh is tossin’ out!

  19. Bit of a baroo there…. lof the brown eyebrow spots!

  20. paulajeanne says:

    Gah! It’s the head tilt!

  21. birdcage says:

    Speaking of brown doxies, there’s a new Iso in Slo-mo vid on YouTube.

  22. I agree. He definitely looks at least a couple months old. With that face, though, I don’t care how old he is. He is absolutely adorable!

  23. BatBlaster says:

    A Dachsund right? Someone needs to get some buns. Look at the expression in its green eyes. SO adorables.

  24. Hon Glad says:

    I think he’s chocolate flavoured.

  25. “What’choo talkin’ ’bout, Willis?”

  26. crazy wienerdog lady says:

    Ok, today is my birthday and as I opened CO I thought “it would be AWESOME if there was a wienerdog on my bday” OHHHH EEEM GEEEEEEEEE! I bebah choco-late and tan veener dawg! I LOVE YOU CO! You have made my day with the bebah veener dog pudgy feet rolls. MUAH! I will now go kiss on my own baby wiener dogs 🙂

  27. Happy Birthday, crazy wienerdog lady..I’m sure CO planned this post just for you! :o) And yes, this little guy owns the place and my soul, as well!

  28. Well happy birthday there crazy wienerdog lady. Big air kisses to you and your baby!

  29. That is the cutest doggy I’ve seen in a loooong time!

  30. snorglepup says:

    Bless you!

  31. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    I’m thinkin’ they meant two months and not two weeks.

  32. Heck, I’d give him what he wants.

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

    wha’??? huh? somebody call me? 🙂

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

    I was gonna mention “wrinkles”, but you did it bettois!!!

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

    Yes, definitely a candidate …..
    *adjusts horn-rimmed spectacles and marks on clipboard*

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

    certainly seems likely!!!

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

    “Happy Birfday to yoooooooooooou
    Happy Birfday to yoooooooooooooou

    Happy Biiiiiirfday CWDL,
    Happy Birfday to yoooooooooooou!!!!!”

    *places a shiny, conical Birfday Hat on CWDL’s head and slices off a big chunk of Birfday Cake for her*

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

    — Also: Miles’ (Meg’s) hovertext is A+ as well 🙂

  39. He’s wearing Japanese schoolgirl loose socks!

  40. LadyGalga says:

    You can tell by looking at his face: he’s gonna be twouble!

  41. Happy birthday, weinerdoglady! I think it should be a rule of cuteness that wienerdogs are AUTOMATICALLY cute! I mean, look at all the cuteness rules this one represents:

    Head tilt
    Rolls of chub
    Stubby little legs
    EYEBROW DOTS!!! (my favorite!!!!)
    I could just keep going and going!! LOVE me some wiener dogs!!!

  42. Matahari says:

    Totally agree 🙂

  43. Happy Burpday!

  44. Copperbat says:

    Adorbs! But if Miles is 2 weeks old, I’m a purple unicorn!

  45. Sweep the leg Johnny!

  46. Noelegy says:

    Traditionally, my affections have been reserved for the larger of the dog set (we have a Husky mix, a Great Pyrenees mix, and just recently acquired a Weimaraner), and so I’ve never been overly squee-ful over small dogs (my hubby calls them “pooper dogs.”)

    This photo has changed that.

  47. Noelegy says:

    P.S. Doxie sox!!

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


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

    nice rhyme and meaningk!!!

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

    Comme c’est du logique!!! 🙂

  51. Crazy! The ears, the mini-baroo, the leg warmers (just back from jazz class, no doubt), the tail, the face, the chubbs, the PUPPEH. *faints*

  52. I love how Miles is just barely taller than the baseboard molding!!!

  53. …But so large in terms of personality!

  54. A Purple Unicorn says:

    ya gotta problem with me, wiseguy?

  55. Way older then two weeks

  56. Mary (the first) says:

    My first thought also: “like” he owns the place? Of course he owns the place!

  58. victoreia says:


  59. Hooray! That’s my boy! My husband and I are so proud. 🙂

  60. Matthew M. says:

    I’m the husband- and I’m dang proud! Also: it is a typo- he’s 12-weeks-cute, going on 13 this week. 😀

  61. My BF thinks the pup’s eyes are photo-shopped! Say it ain’t so!

  62. I am now in my happy place.

  63. it ain’t so.

  64. I promise he was born with those eyes. Most chocolate and tan dachshunds have hazel or green eyes. They may change color as he gets older, but I hope not. 🙂

  65. kibblenibble says:

    Nope. Me, too! 🙂

  66. muttluver says:

    You, not He/She/It. You’re good.

  67. kibblenibble says:

    Congrats, Kirsten and Matthew, he’s adorable! 🙂

  68. muttluver says:

    Hahaha, our “thing” in our family is that we call people on their bdays and sing happy birthday while the dog (sometimes dogs, now) howls along. It’s hilarious.

  69. muttluver says:

    Sorry, Doug.

  70. muttluver says:

    I’ll bet! Is he a fiesty little thing?

  71. He can be feisty- especially when he wrestles around with our other dachshund who is 7 years old. Most of the time, though, he is just a cuddlebug and just wants a warm lap to sleep in.

  72. Just occurred to me this puppers reminds me of Cate Blanchett.

  73. Day-um! That’s so cute it hurts!

    aiiiii que fofinho!!
