This Is Absolutely, Positively the Last Time I Listen to that No-good Lying Cat

Found the magic Sausage Tunnel, she tells me. Leads to Sausage Land, where sausage grows on trees, she says. Turns out there’s only one sausage, and I’m it.

You know, Sara B., you could just have cut some leg holes and been done with it.



  1. That face says, “I don’t know what I did to deserve this, but I am so, so sorry!”

  2. (The Original) Mel says:

    Oooohhhh the indignity.

  3. Oooohhhh the hilarity

  4. Love the cat checking it al out and doing the cat laugh,

  5. Awwwwwww that is so adorable, stuck in the sausage chamber !

  6. The eyes keep getting bigger and bigger, and more “Why you do thees to moi?”

  7. Martha in Washington says:

    Oh, that poor embarrassed puppeh! And you KNOW that the cat is going to tell the entire neighborhood what happened. Poor pup will never live this down!

  8. Copperbat says:

    hahahaha I could barely watch this because I have a phobia of tight places/clothes… but I made it to the end, laughing and sympathizing with Poncho the whole way.

  9. In all fairness, that looked like a very crafty sleeve.

  10. Poor little pooch! At least he is wagging his tail the whole time.
    I like the owner tucking in the ears and giving it a shake

  11. The tail wagging right at the beginning is soooooo sweet!!!!

  12. No evening is complete without a hefty serving of giggles…my evening is now complete.

  13. I’m sure that “Straighten your head up!” will be added to the more routine commands list of “Sit!”, “Stay!”, and “Heel!” from now on. So adorkabuhls. Poor sausage puppeh.

  14. (The Original) Mel says:

    It says “HALP.”

  15. That’s why they’re called sausage dogs.

  16. riCh chestMat says:

    Pathetic tail wagging FTW

  17. i love how his tail is wagging the whole time 😀 you can even see it wagging through the sweatshirt!

  18. Silly Sausage! what a silly sausage : )
    its big sad eyes and happy dog wagging won me over!

  19. Doggie Oscar nomination for Best OMGWTF?!?!?!?11! Facial Expression at 00:35, methinks.

  20. I love how the kitteh was looking at the guy at the end: “Why? Why did you let him out?”

  21. swampdiamonds says:

    That is some awesome apologetic tail wagging.

  22. Hovertext is hilarious. What a cutie pie.

  23. metsakins says:

    Just had to rewatch for the :35 facial, priceless!

  24. Aaand in a near-total reverse of my post on Babysitter # 069: Wacky hijinks ensue! Release the hound!

    And that cat is going to cap on that poor little doxie foreeeeever….*snork* remember that time you got stuck *giggle* in mommeh’s sleeve *cackle*

  25. He couldn’t take listening to that Vince Gill one more minute so he tried to off himself via sweatshirt. It’s more common than one would think. 😛

  26. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!!! says:

    Puppeh will nevaire again be able to go into the Locker Room.

  27. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!!! says:

    Note to doggeh: “Kitties are ebil.”

  28. You know, if Poncho’s human had stuck to ponchos, this never would have happened.

  29. The Oscar Meyer

  30. At the very end, I imagine the doxie saying “KTHX! Now I’m gonna play Twister on this Twister rug!”

  31. sunnylessmum says:

    I felt the same way Copperbat! I actually shivered watching this because of claustrophobia. I am so glad they showed him getting all the way out of that sleeve!

  32. JacksonsGirl says:

    I know! me too! the kitty was so funny the whole time!! Poor baby pup. I loved how the people. though laughing, really wanted to make sure he stayed safe and un-hurt the entire time.

  33. JacksonsGirl says:

    It was TOTALLY a twister rug! I thought that too!!!

  34. Yes I thought of Twister too!

    This had me laughing so hard, and the guy was so patient getting doggie out of there. My only complaint is – why do they always blame everything on a cat? ; )

  35. Melissa H. says:

    I think he just wanted to be a Bulldog. The sweatshirt did say Butler after all.

  36. This is so funny! The exact same thing happened to my doxie years ago – they love to burrow. It was so ridiculously hard to get her out that I ended up just cutting the sleeve open with scissors. I wish I’d had a video camera back then.

  37. mimzysmom says:

    I was thinking more along the lines of . . .”at least buy me dinner first . . .”

  38. Colonel Jenna says:

    Our dachshund Gonzo liked to run up the legs of any garments that hadn’t made it to the laundry hamper. Pants weren’t that big a deal, but if he found a pair of pantyhose… He’d get clear to the toes and get stuck, then lie there motionless and silent waiting for rescue, looking like a burglar from a bad TV show. Once free he’d be all waggly and jolly again. He is buried with a pair of pantyhose, and a spoon (in case he meets anyone with ice cream.)

  39. My family’s dachshund when I was a kid used to chew her own way out of those tight situations. I still have a twin-bed blanket with holes in it (souvenir of my best buddy). And once she chewed herself free of the sleeve of my dad’s leather jacket – Mom had to intervene to save the dog from the pound that time.

  40. That is fabulously funny and splendidly sweet!

  41. Puppeh was just trying out for a job at Confuse-A-Cat.

  42. Guy goes in for the rescue, pup is all, “Hey dude, what are you doing back there? You’re not my proctologist! HALP!

  43. So qt! But he should pull the sleeve inside out. That way the dog gets released without any effort.

  44. That’s just what I was thinking. Either load up your wardrobe with ponchos, or change the dog’s name to Sweatshirt.

  45. It says “HALP!” but his tail says “I trust you to get me out of this one.”

  46. Awwww.

  47. “Haha he’s probably choking to death” dumb girl =\

  48. Yeah I wanted to take him home with me and get him outta there in the most gentle way possible. Maybe have someone hold his head while I at least used scissors to cut some breathing room in the neck, THEN get him out the way they did.

    That being said, he is the absolute CUTEST!!! EVER!!! Love the tail wagging and the cat!!!

  49. Poor puppah. xP

  50. Well, dachshund WERE bred to go into small tunnels after all… So it makes sense! I suppose it’s the doxie version of how sheepdogs will find something else to herd (e.g. children) if there aren’t any sheep around.

  51. Nah, to be fair it was more:
    “He’s probably choking to death.”

  52. muttluver says:

    Because it’s ALWAYS the cat’s fault. No exceptions. 😉

  53. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:


  54. hilarious!

  55. victoreia says:

    No, it’s always the fault of NotMe. (Just ask my cats….)

  56. just fyi dachshund’s were breed to dig and chase things in underground in tunnels. from “breed all about it”

  57. You mean they WEREN’T bred to look like sausages for the sole purpose of looking like a sausage??? Interesting! 🙂

  58. lol poor poncho

  59. My doxie gets herself in these types of situations all the time! It’s that pointy little nose of hers. She uses it to route her way under comforters, towels and the dirty laundry pile.

  60. crazy wienerdog lady says:

    This has happened to mine SEVERAL times…. and if you go on YouTube you’ll find lots of videos like this LOL

  61. Dewd, you never trust a seal point, who do you think trained the basement cat?

    BTW, wait until the cat has him playing twister with that area rug in the living room.

  62. wuyizidi says:
  63. I love how Dad’s so gentle. Mom’s not much help at all is she, lol?

  64. Bless it’s heart! We have a doxie, and he has gotten himself into a similar predicaments. Even though they seem embarassed, they don’t seem to suffer any lasting effects from the humiliation. Poor puppy!

  65. Erm. “similar predicaments”. No “a”. I hate when I make grammatical mistakes like that.

  66. *That* story made me laugh out loud! I’m glad you have such happy memories of your Gonzo!

  67. That comment gave me pause, as well, but then I thought that it was pretty obvious that the little guy was NOT choking to death… I mean, he wouldn’t wag his tail and be as calm if he was choking, right?

  68. That´s gonna keep me giggling all day.

    And… well done, kitty. It´s April Fool´s after all. 🙂

  69. Seriously. I was thinking that the entire time.

  70. LOL!! I’m sure the cat had something to do with it!

  71. Dear heavens. We’re really nerds, aren’t we? I bet we get a firefly joke followed by a Monty Python one.

  72. Kind of like my invisible third child, No-One. No-One leaves the milk out. No-One left the bread bag open, AND finished the ice cream.
    He’s a bad seed, that No-One. 😉

  73. Waxwork says:

    I love how careful and gentle the guy is. How he carefully tucks his ears through before he wiggles the head out. I also love how completely the goggie trusted that his people would save him. He is obviously a well loved little sausage dog. I would so be like the woman filming and laughing too much to do anything helpful.

  74. I didn’t think the dog was choking because yeah, there weren’t any signs of stress. I just can’t stand dumb girls that would jokingly say “haha he’s probably choking”

  75. Yeah she’s just a dumb girl that wants to record the thing for the lulz

  76. muttluver says:

    You hafta magnify the page to see it, but……


  77. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    It’s the fault of your keyboard; not yours 🙂

  78. muttluver says:

    YES IT IS.

    Mine can no longer keep up with my typing all the time, and some don’t register all the keys your push.

    it’s annyn

  79. AT last! The answer to the question, “Who let the dogs out?!”

  80. Snurfles says:

    Awe, I love that story! Thanks for making me smile even more after watching this video.

  81. Snurfles says:

    Yeah, well, bless that “dumb” girl for having the brains to grab a video camera so we could all enjoy the moment along with them. 🙂

  82. Surrealle says:

    If I recall correctly, daschunds (sp?) were actually bred to hunt badgers, which of course requires venturing into burrows after the animal. Wouldn’t think such a comical looking “weener” dog breed would have what it takes to go after a badger though, hah.

  83. Surrealle says:

    Probably misspelled wiener too.. Oh well. Not exactly a word I have to type very often, lol

  84. I have two dachshunds and watching this made me laugh, because I remembered some of the funny things my two have gotten into, and the older one gets into more trouble and then has the same look on her face like HELP ! they do like to crawl into stuff. In Minnesota here in the winter there all ways crawling into blankets to keep warm .

  85. Ghengis Mom says:

    Wow. You keep saying that. Good heavens, give the girl a break. She clearly loves the dog.

  86. kibblenibble says:

    My sentiments, exactly. I also liked how the guy called him “Bubba,” and talked to him gently throughout the procedure. Sweet.

  87. ratchic says:

    I had a similar event happen with one of my young rats. I have an old holy fleece blanket I let them toss about in and I entered the room too fast and skeered two of them. One jumped and ran, the other jumped fast and froze faster. A quick don’t move and she won’t see me maneuver where his head got stuck out a tiny hole. A rescue like this video ensued where I pressed his head back through. Now, I know its common for rats to fit into small areas, but on this occassion the boy’s quick thinking wasn’t as fast as his jump!

  88. LMAO, OMG if that was my parent’s dashound, she would have been bitting them. I got a dog sweater stuck on Lowie and I had to cover my arms and put gloves on to get it off her lol. At least your dog is nice 🙂 I bet the cat told her to go in there lol.

  89. KatieZ

    you sounds like a downer, please just chill, the “dumb” girl seems to love her dog aaand the situation was funny/cute

  90. yeah the guy was really gentle and calm, about the girl i would giggle too it was a cute and funny scene 🙂

  91. I LOVE how gentle his daddy is, and sweet to him.

  92. This is totally a Garfield/Odie skit.

  93. I’m still trying to figure out how the heck Poncho got in there…

  94. He totally starts out with that “Daddyyyyyyyyyyy!? Haaaaaaalp meeee?!”

    And then he runs away at the end, all “GTF awaaaaaaaaay!!!! No moar sweatshirt!!!”

  95. V Bennett says:

    @ 35 seconds: “Dad watch ya doin back there?”

  96. Poor baby is embarrassed! You can see that he feels embarrassed when mom laughs at him.

  97. V Bennett says:

    Cat at the beginning…”Darn! Another failed assassination attempt!”
