Some Days, Even Kibble Don’t Cut It

Maybe it’s the humidity, or maybe my inability to resolve the mind/body schism at the core of Cartesian dualism, but I’ve been so listless lately. Not even my impressive display of Rule 47 splayed haunch action lights my fire anymore.

It’s just a phase, Marti Z.



  1. Must be Monday…..

  2. One sweet tuning fork impression.

  3. ElishaB. says:

    Ahhhhh, the cool floor feels SO good on my pink, round puppy belly……anybody for a snorgle? 😆

  4. The round tummy, the wrinkly brow, the ennui-loaded expression on the puppy’s sweet fact, the professional-quality splayage, and NTMTOM’s impressive ability to incorporate Cartesian dualism into a puppy kibble post. Ah, I just LOVE this wacky website. 🙂

  5. *Sits patiently in the Mod Lounge, sipping a margarita and pondering the fact that “I Type, therefore I am Moderated…”

    Suddenly, I’m hearing whichever-girl-group-it-was, singing “Heat Wave”.

  9. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    Oh, yeah, I forgot to put my new signature on that last comment.

    man, I suffered the same existential crisis this morning… but I didn’t look nearly that cute

  11. Noelegy says:

    My least favorite words in the English language? “It’s time to get up,” spoken by my dear hubby as the alarm clock goes off.

    I feel Señor Pupperson’s angst deeply in my heart.

  12. Those forehead wrinkles just kill me…splat! My head just exploded from teh cute!

  13. smartyboots says:

    Nobody rocks disgruntlement like a Boxaire!

  14. (The Original) Mel says:

    I’m getting an, “I don’t like that kind, but I will guard it so no one else can eat it either” vibe.

  15. You’re far too young to have an existential crisis…get over yourself, puppy.

    *winks @ Nikki for encouragement*

    (hopes it helps 🙂 )

    wuzzit Martha & the Vandellas???

    and — suitable for this sad Dogue’s
    ” inability to resolve the mind/body schism at the core of Cartesian dualism,”

    ….WOT IS a Vandella??????

    Not that Jean-Paul Sartre, the Other Jean-Paul Sartre

  18. Mary (the first) says:

    It looks to me as if he’s staring down the kibble: “You may have escaped from the kibble bowl, but try to jump into the water bowl and you’ll be sorry. Very sorry.”

  19. tracylee says:

    I Kant imagine what would get you moderateded – did you put Descartes before Deshorse? Oh well, let’s just start up a game of Heidegger-Go-Seek!

  20. Fird Birfle says:

    Here’s the Important Followup Qweshtyun, then. …
    How did the Kibble taste to you? 😉

  21. Fird Birfle says:

    I almost wanna request a “Cute or Sad?” Tag, but in keeping with the meme, I feel undecided ….

  22. :mrgreen:

  23. He got tuckered out on his way to breakfast. Poor little guy. He just has to reach a liiiiiittle mooooore, and he’ll have his noms.

    Man, this comment was full of words that I had to fight autocorrect over. Sheesh.

  24. Ehn! Can’t… reach!

  25. victoreia says:


  26. Bwahaha!

  27. Theresa says:

    That floor DOES look like a Cartesian plane.

  28. earlybird1 says:

    HAHA! like!!

  29. Linda H. says:

    Even plunking a couple in his water bowl didn’t help.

  30. Emmberrann says:

    A Vandella is wot sings w/Martha…. Oh, BTW, FB aka JPS: Hee, and also hee-hee! Rigolo!

  31. Sometimes when you stare at the kibble, the kibble stares back at you ?

  32. Doggy frog legs just happen to be the cutest thing ever, spectacular opportunity for ‘tocular kisses !!!!!!!!!! There’s nothing like a good sneak attack kiss on a poor unsuspecting pair of canine ‘tocks ! Perhaps even a little painless nip/kiss combo !!!!!!!!!

  33. bashful says:

    Oh those gigantic PAWZE!

  34. dogsleder says:

    Shadow used to do that too. Same with toys and empty plastic water bottles.

  35. not another bowl of kibble, I just got done with 3 bowls oh my acking stomach

  36. Lerrinus says:

    *snerk* 😆

  37. Fird Birfle says:

    *agree with every single word of this assessment*

  38. Fird Birfle says:

    ooooooooo tracylee is givin’ up tha goods
    in Existentialism 101 [aka Angst 101]

    *shares either a high-five or a fist-bump
    [whichever is currently more in mode] with tracylee*

  39. Fird Birfle says:

    ya gotta guard them empty plastic water bottles WIF YER LIFE. There aren’t enough of ’em, y’know???

  40. Fird Birfle says:

    *delighted snerk*

  41. Fird Birfle says:


  42. OMG, giving 260Oakley a run for her money!

  43. {le sigh}
    also, puppy looks like the illustration for one of those chicken-under-a-brick recipes!

  44. doomchild says:

    That’s when you’re really desperate… noms aren’t good even when soaked, or when rolled on the floor a bit. Poor little thing 😦

  45. Rachael says:

    I’m hypnotized by the world class splayage. :0

  46. Hear, hear.

  47. Omnomnom says:

    “You know kids were very different then. They didn’t have their heads filled with all this Cartesian dualism.”

  48. marthava says:


  49. tracylee says:

    high-fives, pls, kthks 😀

  50. tracylee says:

    (was actually hoping Oak would join in!!)

  51. jlamusings says:

    Awww so sweet n’ pathetic!

    1) turkey legs! (that’s what I call that type of splayage)
    2) He’s just entering the emo stage now – Prepare for the piercings, black hair dye, and hanging out pondering the unfairness of it all with emo pony, cat, and bun.

  52. I think this boxer puppy simply disapproves of being fed out of what appear to be RABBIT bowls. Seriously, my boxers feel that if their bowls aren’t at least twice the size of their heads, it’s just not worth it.

  53. *sing in Rod Stewart voice* Inmoderation!

  54. luvstehQte says:

    he must live in chicago–it’s about elebenty billion degrees here and i’d like to be doing the same thing (except in my case, the wrinkles would be on the ‘tocks, which isn’t quite as Qte)
