Oh, Go and Get a Glass of Water

The title says “puppy has hiccups,” but I think that “swallowed live frog” would be a reasonable alternate explanation.

UPDATE: Sorry, folks, but the video was taken down. 😦



  1. BEEP on da widdle nose!
    And I can’t believe a person could sit still for 1:33 without snorgling that puppeh!

  2. Panda corgi!

    Poor little dude, I’m glad they finally stopped. He didn’t seem to mind much though.

  3. I wish I was that cute when I had the hiccups. I just scream and scream because I can’t get rid of them.

  4. definitely should be a new Rule Of Cuteness:

    If something small has hiccups, it’s cute.

  5. Three million jillion bonus points for Python reference.

    Also, aaawwwwwww.

  6. Awwwwww, poor little thing!

  7. monkeylover says:

    i think its chasing something in its dream it happens all the time with pups

  8. I’m trying to imagine someone having hiccups and screaming repeatedly at the same time. It’s kind of blowing my mind.

  9. Moderation? For THAT? *cries*

  10. I think the big green machine is cranked up to high alert lately. I’ve been in mod over at the luau post for almost an hour. Want to share some artichoke dip?

  11. Hicpups.

  12. I was thinking the same thing! Somebody – preferably me – should cuddle that baby, and pat his back to get rid of those nasty old hiccups. It might take all afternoon, but I’ll clear my schedule.

  13. ooooh one of my favorites! I haven’t done anything naughty lately, but can I join you?

  14. *hic*

    (Repeat ad infinitum)

  15. Arrgh, where did my posting go???

  16. AND he’s a corgi!!!! DOUBLECUTE

  17. That little dude has some serious sleep skills to sleep through those! Definitely needs some smooshing on though.

  18. Ah! There is it! *hic*

  19. Of course. Pull up a butt bed.

  20. Another Corgi so soon after Lieutenant Dan? YAY! I wants one of my own!

  21. Seems to have floppy ears for corgi. Do puppies…?

  22. lol… left my butt beads at home…

  23. I second that! So cute!

  24. Here, you can borrow–no, never mind.

  25. Fird Birfle says:


  26. Exactly. I kept thinking “Why aren’t you petting this cutie pie?! Move over, you’re doing this wrong, let me show you what you supposed to do when you have a hiccupping puppy on your lap…”

  27. I’ve just arrived in the mod lounge. Here, I brought a fresh batch of margaritas…

  28. Ha. I’m in the mod lounge for posting about the mod lounge. So meta.

  29. I did moderation time for Roger Miller lyrics.

    I bet he would be proud.

  30. Yum! I brought the multi-color tri-corner cheeps (for the deeps). Nom.

  31. For cryin’ out loud – moderation again??? for THAT???

  32. Poor puppy . . . it appeared that the hiccups stopped at the end.

  33. Oh, that’s a good one!

  34. I’m out! Here, you can have the rest of my tofu-dogs-in-blankets.

  35. This morning in a story time for 3-year-olds I referred to something in a picture book I was reading to them as being “so meta”. I am wicked.

  36. I was thinking Pup-cups!

  37. Poor little guy.

    And I have a serious need to cuddle that little guy. I love Corgis.

  38. Z.R, it sometimes takes awhile for little corgs’ ears to stand up. Depends upon the individual pup, when her ears begin to stand on their own. Hence, the really small ones still possess floppular earlets!
    Still nommable, I assure you.

  39. I’ve done that. When they’re too painful adorable when asleep and you don’t want to wake them and just bask in how freaking precious they are. My Corgi fell asleep with her head in the crook of my arm the other day, and while my arm was losing all feeling I was all, “Mustn’t move. Will Wake perfect adorableness next to me.”

  40. Puppies… how do they work.

    I mean really puppies are just wonderful. I know some people talk about kittens and such, but to me.. puppies are proof of a higher power. Look at that. So cute so helpless and so completely trusting. Ahhhh bless the puppies, they make life just warm and fuzzy.

  41. doing time at CO moderation for roger “king of the road” miller is like the lite version of san quentin for johnny “a boy named sue” cash.

  42. The leetle squeaks he makes when hiccuping has made me DED.

    I think he would be cured of hee-cups if I nommed on this paws.

  43. I know, it’s funny, but gets painful after a while. Glad they stopped!!!

  44. I just GOT hiccups from snortlaffing at that while eating my supper.

  45. Changing my name puts me into the mod lounge! says:

    YAY! Now I have to say something to get into the lounge. Hmmm.. what could it be. Oh, I know….

  46. Mary (the first) says:

    Yep. That worked! 😀

  47. Poor sweetie. “Look, it’s very simple: just STAY ‘ere…and MAKE sure…’e doesn’t get away.”

  48. 😀

  49. Third Shift says:

    Come on people, it’s obvious what this puppy needs is a replacement battery and a firmware upgrade. Move aside. Get me the db9-to-rj45 cable and a flash drive.

  50. Good. Gravy.

  51. yay they went away!

  52. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    DING! We have a winnah! 😀

  53. #1 I could have never let him go that long I would have picked him up and patted his back, cuz he is so sweet
    #2 a “CARDIGAN” corgi how soft he must be ahhhhhhhhhh
    he is so sweet
    #3 please give him most of my x’s & o’s
    #4 have no idea why I am numbering things my brain must be on CO

  54. Yep. That worked! 😀

  55. “We’re coming with you.”

    Love it. And love that poor little pooper.

  56. I only got through six seconds of that before my brain melted.

  57. that heart shaped nose!

  58. i think you have to make some sorta cat or dog or animal reference. dog thread/dog reference:

    love that doggy song he did.

    (actually he married a classmate of mine. from high school, no less. they had a really cute corgi…)

  59. tell me, somebody: ‘so meta’????

  60. another gen. lives under a rock, have no idea, mike.

    whatsit all about, nomtom???

  61. they’re a mixture of rainbows, warm laundry smell and starlight. i saw it once on How It’s Made.

  62. @ CJ LIKE!!

  63. My Mom always told us that when they were hic-ing they were growing. Has anyone ever seen a full-groweded one with hic-ups?

  64. That is exactly what I do when I get the hiccups, I really hate getting them!

  65. heehee, reminds me of the time I was pregnant with my youngest daughter. She had the hiccups even before she was born. Got me hooked to collecting frogs, Got about 600 now. Heeeeeeeeeeeeelp. Don’ty need any more.

  66. Fird Birfle says:

    I’m Nerdy, Not Knowledgeable, but I’ll take a Poke at it. If I recall ANYTHING AT ALL (?) about Metrics, “Meta” is the opposite of “Micro”. Thus it implies eternity or no loose ends or boundaries.

    I think that “Meta” — these (confusing) days — has also come to describe,
    when something *Ironic* (either meaning-wise or in a visual image)
    is made *Even More Ironic* by twisting it back upon itself

    Ex: the kitten looking at the computer screen, on which is a pic of that same kitten looking at a computer screen, etc., etc.

    or alternatively: those MC Escher images which include
    staircases or tubes which are eternal but yet some parts twist away from the center ….

  67. Fird Birfle says:

    That’s a precious silly bit o’ dialogue from Monty Python/ Holy Grail film ….in which a King’s Son, the Prince is, shall we say, an Interior Designer, rather than a LumberJack …..but I don’t want to give all the bits of the joke, for anyone who hasn’t yet had the marvelous experience of every bit of that film.

    Especially the Llamas. Don’t miss the Llamas.

  68. Fird Birfle says:

    Now, now, peeps….let’s do realize that THE POOR t0rtured pup is lying in somebody’s lap. ‘Tisn’t as though he’s experiencing the Spanish Inquisition.

    “NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!!!111!!!”

  69. Fird Birfle says:

    PS: and NOMTOM has used (as his title above)
    another, different bit of dialogue (from the same film)…
    about the glass of water 🙂

  70. Nooo! Not the comfy chair!

  71. Ack! I have been moderated!

  72. Moi, Actually says:

    Exactly, And it’s a willing, lotus-posish lap, too.Why would anypup get up and go get water?

  73. Meta, as used above, generally means self-referential. For example, meta-moderation is being moderated for writing about being moderated…

  74. And did you know the Mod Lounge has mirrored walls?

  75. Mary (the first) says:

    Every time I see this I want to stuff those snow-white paws into my mouth. They look too sweet to resist.

  76. When I was 13 and we got a puppy, he slept in a box in a room with me and my sister. His name was Dickens. I woke up one night to a weird noise and I looked in his box. He was hiccuping, but I had never seen a dog hiccup before and since he was belly-up, I could really see his stomach move. I immediately went to my parents’ room and woke up my mom, saying “Mom, something’s jumping inside of Dickens!” My family has never let me live that down.

  77. Me too, Faye! We’ll be OK. Think I’ll just curl up with my blanky on the mod lounge floor.

  78. I am convinced that this is what baby angels look like.

  79. Moi, Actually says:

    O noes! Where did the pup go? I just had to have another peek at this when what should appear but——an ad for lunchmeat!
    If I didn’t have hiccups before, I will now.

  80. My wife found a way to stop them the other day. She was drinking some water to get rid of them and the water dribbled into her top. She squealed and that was the end of the hiccups.

  81. Forth approval! Motion passed

  82. *Fourth ~___~ it’s too early

  83. My kitteh gets the hickups too. It’s adorbs!

  84. Hey! I chimed in a LONG time ago! *harumph*

  85. thank you so much. none of this is beyond my education but it is;\
    like metastable. watch oujt. the moderator is feeling metastab…

    i caught the corgi, ha ha ha. anyone wont a lick”

    more blinder than usual today…

  86. Yeah, my Corgi used to get hiccups all the time, even when he was an adult. It was more frequent when he was a puppy though.

  87. rectangular lunchmeat, primarily pork.on n oes indeek.

  88. Stop standing around! Someone get that puppy a glass of water and scare him by shouting: “Your legs will never get any longer than this, adorabuhl puppeh!”

  89. Homer & Maggie's mom says:

    My German itzafochinhund (sound it out) dog still occasionally hiccups. We got her from the pound when she was a few months old so we don’t know exactly how old she is, but she’s had us for five years.

  90. janeellensmith says:

    Cure hiccups: Bend over as far as you can and hold your breath. Hiccups are spasms of the esophagus and this helps to stop them.

    Now you know…

  91. I hate hiccups. I hate having them and I even hate when others have them. They actually make me angry and I have no idea why. This puppy’s lil hics are cute, but I can’t watch the video for more than a few seconds without getting annoyed. Am I the only person on the planet like this? Anyone else get angry about hiccups?

  92. So cuuuute!

    My labbie gets the hiccups all the time, especially when she’s spooked or stressed. Poor kiddo.

  93. hiccuphobia? is it anything like the sound of open-mouthed popcorn chewing in movie theater?

  94. 🙂

  95. Swallow your spit three times. That works for me.

  96. Another example of good CO decision-making!

  97. Or the moose.

  98. Raaaaaaarrrr*hiccup*ggghhhhh…

  99. occula, you beat me to it. Great and subtle Python reference and my Dad used to say the same thing to me when I got the hiccups as a kid. LOL!

  100. random dog person says:

    there is something cute about mini legs

  101. Blow short puffs of air in front of his or her nose,this will help get rid of the hiccups,cause the more the puppy hiccups the more the tummy aches start. Just a lit reminder. Cute puppy,though!

  102. @ Homer & Maggie’s Mom You made me wake my 3 sleeping cats laughing out loud at the (sound it out) comment… I had to say it twice to get it and then I sounded like a mule laughing! Thank you so much for that!! (Although the “now awake” fuzzys would disagree!)

  103. I’m pretty sure the lap-bearer is asleep. It’s impossible to stay awake with a snoozing puppy anywhere nearby. It’s instant zzzzzzzzz for us so I’m sure that’s the reason said hiccuping-puppeh is not being man-handled. We like to call it “vaporization”. I’ve actually got a sweet little pit bull breathing in my ear as I type and I can barely keep my eyes op…..

  104. “No, no….STAY here, until I get back”
    “I’m to stay here until he gets back”
    “No, until I..”
    “Until YOU”
    “Get back.”
    “Get back.”

    “Where are you going?!”
    “I’m comin’ with YOU!”

  105. Even faster: hold a glass of water and bend over it, drink from the opposite rim so you are drinking upside down. Try to finish the glass.

  106. I agree! I would after one second!

  107. Looks like the vid was taken down cause it was a copy of the original. Did some quick searching and found the original vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvW_z-gaMqI

  108. so 🙂 happy 🙂 I saw the video before it was removed — Thanks @backwardok for the YouTube link.

    So nice to see so many comments and it wasn’t because there was a fight! 😉
