You Know How It Is

I didn’t mean to. Sometimes I’m not perfect. Sometimes I have other priorities. Sometimes I just can’t help myself. Sometimes I hope three lame excuses will be enough.

Tell us another one, Maia. Cutest guilt complex ever, Maria R.! Photo by Ben L.


  1. Isn’t that 4 excuses? you had me at the first one.

  2. I forgive you, puppeh! Like jj, one excuse would have been enough for me, too.

  3. lookit dose earsies! NOMNOMNOM

    I mean.. uh…
    dang, those are some cute paws, too…

    now, what was I saying?
    oh, to heck with it…


  4. Tracylee,
    why do I get the feeling this is the look Miss Schnozz throws you and all is forgiven? ;)

  5. exactly the same… sigh…
    (“no, I wasn’t gonna eat that kitteh, I just wanted to taste it… honest… “)

  6. Mary (the first) says:

    She’s thinking, “Yeah, maybe I shouldn’t have, but it was sure worth it. Whoo!”

  7. Sasha's Mum says:

    Nah, she’s plotting. “When I grow into my puppeh bed (not to mention my tail) you won’t be able to stop me!

  8. She needs to grow into those huge feets too.

  9. warrior rabbit says:

    Izzat someone else’s paw in the background there? Like, maybe Mom’s?

  10. hksginger says:

    That’s exactly what I was thinking! Would be a very odd angle for the tail to sit at, no matter how much growing he/she McCutersons has to do :)

  11. zoetta says:

    “And yes, I do need this big bed….”

  12. Fird Birfle says:

    “does this bed, make my butt look big??” ;)

  13. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    You’re off the hook, little one. I can’t imagine you did whatever you did; it must have been that “other dog.”

  14. Just blame it on the kitty!

  15. Psst…is she buying it?

    Lord, look at those eyes, it’s all written right there: “Just act casual. Cute, sorry puppy eyes. Look, see how cute and pathetic I look. Yes, very sorry about the pillow, just DON’T look behind the sofa…DON’T LOOK BEHIOND THE SOFA!”

  18. hee Kari…or she’s like my dog, sits right in the middle of her guiltiness as a puppeh and would look up at me like, yeahhh I did it. But look at me with my floppy boxer ears and wrinkly brow. I’m forgiven right?? RIGHT?!!

  19. ceejoe says:

    heh heh… Behind the sofa made me smile… last week I cleaned up a pile of cat poop from behind the sofa… the part that kinda freaked me out was that I wasn’t sure how long it’d been there… 8O

  20. psssttt…eyebrow dots. *runs and hides while the eyebrow dot contingency comes clamoring :) *

    @ Emmylee:

    WOW the eyebrow dot-afficianados (myself included) have now FORMED A

    *calls the local newspaper Political section*

  23. ceejoe says:

    And we’re still picketing…
    Eyebrow Dots! We Want Eyebrow Dots Rule! [waving signs]

  24. I’m actually quite okay with being part of this great movement, for such a wonderful cause… It is imperative that our contingency get the word out on the streets! The Eyebrow Dot Rule MUST PASS!

  25. DogEared says:

    you have my vote.

  26. @Firdie….*ahem* I can not confirm nor deny that we have now formed a contingency. Our press secretary will have to get back to you on that.

  27. Fird Birfle says:

    “If you say ‘I can neither confirm, nor deny….’, YOU MIGHT BE
    a politician …..”

    Your press sec’y can contact my press sec’y, and they can “do lunch”, Emmylee!!

  28. Rachael says:

    If I had a nickel for every time I’ve encountered exactly that look from my two…

    And yet it still stops me dead in my tracks, every single time. Can you say “sucker”? :)

  29. DogEared says:

    is that possibly a German Shepherd puppeh? *snatches said puppeh and heads to secret location of Puppeh DNA Lab which may or may not be my house*

  30. Fird Birfle says:


  31. hksginger says:

    LOVING the hovertext! That puppeh certainly knows its person 8O

  32. Omg, my name is maia!

  33. Sharpy says:

    that’s a rockin’ name, btw!

  34. That is a sweet but guilty face! :)
