Red, White and Cute

You can just put away those sparklers and roman candles, pal — because this pocket rocket’s the most dazzling thing you’ll ever see this Fourth of July!

  3. so cute!
    little goggie looks pretty happy with herself.
    Probably got Rachel Zoe on her speed dial…

  4. 😯 cRAzY eyE5 😯

  5. I usually think clothing on animals is a bit wierd… but this is waaayyy too cute!

  6. Martha in Washington says:

    Happy 4th Peeps!

    I wish my kids wanted “sparklers” like these instead of the dangerous ones.

  7. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    Enough said.

  8. Ali-Baba says:

    She’s a Yorkie Doodle Dandy!

  9. Fird Birfle says:

    I’m entirely in agreeance with both ffleur (in re. Rachel Zoe’s “digits”
    on doggiepooh’s Blackberry) and with Theo (in re googly eyes). 🙂
    Cuteness cubed !!! Silly, but in a good way!!!!

  10. Fird Birfle says:

    A++ AND bonus points, fer you!!!

  11. My cats would probably prefer this indignity (for a cat) to the nonstop firecrackers in our neighborhood.

  12. Mary (the first) says:


  13. Emmberrann says:

    Agreein’ witcha, ffleur. That ther dogaculette is smilin’ wayyy too much to be unhappy, and I’ve met some Yorkettes that positively preened in clothes! (Absolootly the opposite of the late Mr. Picky, who would NOT wear anything. A nudist cat, if you will.)

  14. Theresa says:

    Was he an exhibitionist cat?

  15. Theresa says:

    YAY! for cRAzY eyE5! (waving cRaZY poMPom5)

  16. When I was about 7, we got a 2-year old dog from the SPCA. My mom picked her out because she was a small dog in housed with a big german shepard. Mom thought that proved she was a toughie, able to endure our family of 5 kids. In those days the SPCA paid for the spaying. Anyway, our dog was such a sweetie. She was already house trained and loved our family. My younger sister and I used to pretend she was our baby. We would dress her in a jumpsuit (tail tucked down one pant leg) and pretend to feed her then put her over our shoulder to burp her. She was so patient and hopefully enjoyed the attention. She never snapped at any of us – ever. I miss her to this day and she has been dead a long time.

  17. Starfish says:

    Happy Fourth, everybody!

    Yorkie sez: Sorry, I can’t hear you over how patriotic I am.

  18. This dog has a permanently dippy look on her face. I instantly like people/animals that look permanently dippy.

  20. Fird Birfle says:

    Earlier today, I had just thought of asking you whether
    you had had the pompoms dry-cleaned yet, for the 4th!!! 🙂

  21. 260Oakley says:

    Another re-enactor on her way to the Battle of Yorkietown. I think the authenticity of her uniform may be up for debate.

  22. 260Oakley says:

    … or maybe she’s just there for the Corn-on-the-cob-Wallis.

  23. Well that a pup-triot if I ever saw one!
    Happy 4th to all the American peeps!

  24. Fird Birfle says:

    Et apres 10 jours de plus, la date sera,
    le quatorze juillet!!!

    *waves French flag also*

  25. Heh-heh. He said “pocket rocket.”

  26. Lerrinus says:

    Niiiiiiice! 😀

  27. victoreia says:


  28. and “skirt squirt”

  29. Emmberrann says:

    As much as any floofy cat, I spoze. When he would stretch and “expose” his belleh for scritchies, definitely. As for the rest of the time, he was much too dignified for exhibitionism. He was much more into the NOT wearing of items, such as collars, hats, bows, sweateuws, hoodies, eyeglasses, ties, ribbons, etc., etc., etc.

  30. I’m not French, I’m Canadian 😆 We had our national hollyday, Canada Day on July 1st and the national day of Québec, la Sain-Jean Baptiste was on June 24th.
    But I don’t mind singing you La Marsaillaise if you want:
    Allons enfants de la Patrie
    Le jour de gloire est arrivé! ….

  31. Fird Birfle says:

    (clears throat, in preparation for singing en publique)

    If you can excuse the [*ptoooey*]
    Bad Guyz at the beginning of the clip, I submit this :

  32. luvstehQte says:

    debg, you must live in my ‘hood, because we’ve been positively bombarded with the illegal fireworks here and the dog & i are totally over it.

    on a cuter note, this yorkie is fantabulous, even though i also don’t normally approve of full outfits on dogs.

  33. Late as usual, thats me.
    I read that many of the actors were in fact Europeans who had fled the war and their singing was not an act, but singing from the heart. It is one of the best scenes from any movie, a true moral statement.

  34. Fird Birfle says:

    *snickers and enjoys wholeheartedly, the particular choice that Emberrann made, in the spelling “sweateuws” here, which more-precisely denotes Mr. Picky’s SCORN for said items of (human) Toggery*

  35. What a darling Patriotic doggy!

  36. Must be that time of the year again, When they light of those lights in the sky that scare me to death!!

  37. Tim Zander says:

    Now I know why they said “Don’t look directly at the SPARKLERS!”

  38. Jean Bearrick says:

    Miss All-American Pooch!

  39. Dale Sparks says:

    Doesn’t she know I’m a boy dog?
