Cute Overload :D
Cantaloupe! Destroyer of desktops!
Cantaloupe! Pilferer of plush ponies!
Cantaloupe! Naughty nosher of nutritious nuts!
Cantaloupe! Calamitous copper of cleverly-crafted cloth cactii!
BONUS CLEVER MUG SLOGAN-HANCE!
Just how do you train a dog like that? LOL! The mug was badly misspelled. “Cat make more sence than men” should be “Cats make more sense than men.” Sheesh. Cheap oriental knock-offs are annoying.
My dog ctrl-alt-deleted my homework.
Next chapter: Tardis cookie-jar despoilment!
I LOFFF heeem! Although he is a very bad greyhound! :) Not his fault though. :) First week my greyhound came home he put his paws on the kitchen counter and I body-slammed him and that was that. The klepto thing (is it unique to greyhounds?) is adorable. First week, he took his Dad’s retractable measuring tape into the crate, we just had to laugh, our boy was building an escape pod. He also had read Murakami and Ishiguro, but expressed disdain for Mishima. He loves textile and I still find a shirt or sock tangled up in his pile of things, sometimes. I’m slightly worried about Cantelope’s sproing-ing, aren’t you? They have such fragile wishbone-thin legs.
Greyhounds are not destructive, they just want what you have. :)
Just have to ask. Isn’t he a whippet? Seems awfully small for a greyhound.
HOW IS SHE EATING THAT CACTUS? *whew* Sorry for yelling, but OMD (Oh My, DOG!)
TRACYLEE! You gotta see this!!
PS: NTMTOM you are a BEAST.
AHAHA, I love how she yells his name at the end! What a cute name for that little guy too.
This is why the rule in my household is SHORT LEGS ONLY – dachshunds, corgis and bassets make the cut. The magnitude of the sproingification is controlled that way. Of course, I can’t explain away the fully-flighted winged creatures with whom I live. They swoop in and steal my dinner and swoop away before I know what’s happened.
(I’m thinking the typos on the mug are intentional. LOLspeak and whatnot.)
That’s an Italian Greyhound. They’re very sweet, very bouncy, and shameless thieves. They’re also neurotic, notoriously difficult to housebreak, and often destroy furniture with their burrowing habits. Cute video, but not my favorite breed of dog.
I know! I’m sure she’s gotta have pics or videos of Ms. Schnozz doing the same! Cantaloupe would love Shakti as she too, steals stuffed animals.
It’s an Italian Greyhound – much smaller yes….
I cringed and had to look away. sheeesh. I hope NOMTOM is right and its a cloth cactus.
I thought it was pretty darn funny.
Um ….. don’t say that too loudly around these parts. Goose, the Chief Puppeh Occifer at CO might hear you …….
One of my cats does that too… I often find the little teddy bear from my nightstand laying on the floor somewhere else in the house… no idea who does it though… :)
My cat defnitly make more sence then men.
*whispers* ceejoe…it’s the elves who move your teddy bear. Your cats told me so.
No offense intended–they’re just not my cup o’ tea.
If I were Cantaloupe, the TARDIS would’ve been the FIRST thing I took!
It’s all fun and games and really cute until Cantaloupe leaves a cashew infused brownie on your key board. :P
Maybe she is upset at they name her Cantaloupe and this is payback? :)
I don’t know. “Cantaloupe” seems more appropriate for a Melon-Collie baby if you ask me.
Cats don’t like competition when it comes to snorgleing time.
I can’t tell if Yolanda’s the most literal CO devotee, or pulling our legs…
Well, just about anything does!
Whippet. Whippet good.
She very cleverly picked it up by the blossom, which has no tongue prickers.
We really need a sarcasm font.
I like the name – it’s kinda’ like “Antelope” but not so literal – and Cantaloupe likes like she can run and spring with the best of the wild ones!
Huh. My cats often make a great deal of scents…but then, so does the husband at times. EEEEWWWW!!!
That was my thought too.. she’s trying to punish them for yelling “Cantaloupe” at her! Why not a nice name like.. I don’t know .. “Slim” or “Mandy” or something?
that comment stinks !
Stop trying to make sence, bob.
Must have been a “cat burglar ” !!!!!!!!!!!!
This film was entrapment. Those are dog toys Cantaloupe is taking. Now, if you don’t want your dog on your desk you don’t put the toys on it to tempt.
That sounds very logical !
Unless Cantaloupe is part cat. Every night, I say to my cats: “Get offa my nightstand and leave my stuff alone!” We all have a good laugh and then they dump my books on the floor.
Yes, it make a good deal of sence.
(I’ll shut up now, before somebody starts slapping me for being obnoxious.)
Wasn’t that the kind of dog who wore that AT-AT Costume last october for Halloween ?
Personally I would TOTALLY clean off my desk except for the computer just to mess with that klepto pup. Then a trip to the dollar store for a butt load of new stuffed anipals & scatter them all around the house. (on the floor)
Sounds like a prickly thing to do ! HYUK YUK YUK !!!!
ARE WE NOT WHIPPETS? :P
Or she might see her as a competitor for all the world’s stuffies. :P
Lol! Yes! This happens to me every. single. night. Usually between 4-4:30 a.m.
NTMTOM! Appalling Applier of Awesome Alliteration!
What! What’d I do?! (climbs down from desk)
i see what you did there, Oak!
I love that girl. She’s totally patient and chill with the right level of firmness at the end. I’d have a cage of chicken wire erected around my desk if I were Cantaloupe’s mum. Just sayin’.
*Testing, one, two …*
[not certain, whether this link will accomplish what I intend. Here goes…]
If it does the correct thing, it’s directed at/ to the marvelous skippymom.
Cantaloupe + floor = Not Clear on the Concept.
Oh hey! I have that mug (sans spelling errors, though).
Looked pretty real to me, so much so that I yelped aloud when watching it.
So much about this is comment worthy or confusing. Are they in chronological order? Are we seeing Cantaloupe getting better at the jump (many tries at first; later it’s automatic)? Why was the camera there, was the owner confused about why the desk was being disturbed and wanted to see why? Don’t you love how one accidental stomp turns the screen off but then another one turns it back on? WAS it entrapment? Looks like a dog toy to me, and possibly also food, but some humans keep stuffed animals around for the human’s sake. If it WAS entrapment, than shame on the owner for yelling at the end. If it wasn’t entrapment, did it all happen the same day? If not, why wait so long before applying correction? Why not simply lock the dog out of this room. I enjoyed the video and the dog’s athleticism and agility, but I hope it wasn’t a case of getting an animal to misbehave for the sake of the cute, and then disciplining it.
Yes, indeed, Bones Mello the At At Dog is an Italian Greyhound.
Isn’t that the name of Dr.Who’s ship ?
“sproingification.” Hah! I will now appropriate that word and plan to use it three times a day for the next week. “My elder kitty is losing her sproingification.” Um . . . Love it!
VERY determined dog! (Never give up! Never surrender!)
“Quit it, Cantaloupe!” is officially now a Thing We Say In Our House.
Can we have an update on MOMTOM? How is she doing now?
I spoke to her this morning, and she’s much more cheerful and positive now. Thank you for asking! :)
I love the part where C-Doggie steps on the keyboard and the screen goes sideways. My cats love to walk on the keys, too. They don’t care so much when the computer’s off, but when it’s on they want to lay on it, walk on it, play on it, . . .
Or maybe we’ll both end up in the MOD LOUNGE together !!
Ah, and this is why, as much as I find dogs adorabuhls, I do not own a dog…
i love cantaloupe for his disdain for mishima. mishima would never sproing.
The whole world came to a stop while I marveled at David Byrne all over again. Yay, Talking Heads!!!
so agree. I find it just as awesome now, as when they first did that.
I’ve given up on putting things on my nightstand that weigh less than 5 pounds. They will be on the floor when I wake up.
I see it I see it! (sorry was w/o compy for the weekend)
yaayyy for silly sighthounds :)
I don’t know much about the weird fetishes of pups, but I know my kitty used to *lick* the very, very pointy and very, very stiff needles of a large cactus in our home. If you bumped into this thing, you would bleed…but we would, quite frequently, find her sitting there in front of the plant, blissfully licking away.
I love me some Cantaloupe!
