Okay, class, get your utensils ready

You need to melt some white chocolate and butter. Just melt a bunch. Because you’re going to make a double batch. Now get a biiig bowl. Dump in some flour. Get a big bag of chocolate chips. Stir it all together. You want it nice and fluffy without being too gooey. Sorry if I don’t know exact measurements. It’s an old recipe I got from my mother. Now spoon 18 dollops of dough. Savor the goodness while still warm.

Droooool, Cutest Paw!



  1. All hail Perdita [Mrs. Pongo] and Dodie Smith!

  2. Aww, look at the pride on her face! Such a pretty mama and such sweet, dahling Dalmation puplets!

  3. think mama will mind if I dive in for a snorgle or two?

  4. Lol, I thought her expression was, ‘Haaaaaalllllp! I’m surrounded! Someone else can take the 2, 4 and 6am feedings¬’
    How pretty the pink below the dappling is.

  5. You’re not fooling anybody – we all know you have ear nommage on your mind. 🙂

  6. Haha, I see your point, but my first thought was her pretty eyes conveyed “Why yes! I DID make them all myself! Thank you so much, but no, you may NOT have one.” ;D

  7. skippymom says:

    There is just no way that all of those were inside her. No way.

  8. Oh My DOGGGGGGGG……..how many babies are in there?

  9. Fird Birfle says:

    I know, right??? Unless she held a couple of ’em under each ear flap or sumthin’.

    SO CRAZY CUTE & stylin’ black / white polka dots!!
    IT”s *cue Rachel Zoe voice & contact Winston: * “BANANAS”!!!!

  10. ThirdShift says:

    Peeps! I am sad today. My little guy has been diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma. He has no idea, he’s still being a derp but he’s lost a lot of weight in the last month. 😦

  11. What a proud mama! And those silly celebrities think they get their figures back quickly!

  12. hehe skmom… I got a mental image of a Dalmatian clown car

  13. I counted 14 puppeh heads.

  14. oh nooo! is it your greyhound? contact Ohio State University – they may have some information… I know they do a lot of research and even send medication to cancer houndies

    Miss Schnozz sends cold nose pokes and tail wags your way

  15. Fird Birfle says:

    whudever that thing is it sounds like a cancer-y word.

    Me sowwy. I’ll help you to pout, ThirdShift. Keep us posted.

  16. Mary (the first) says:

    What kind of little guy are you talking about here? No matter who, sorry for your sadness. Is the little guy going to recover?

  17. Oh no! I can’t even express how sorry I am. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your little guy. *hugs*

  18. There’s a lady at the door in a black and white fur coat babbling about spots. Should I let her in?

  19. *sigh* it’s true.

  20. Fird Birfle says:

    is her last name deVille ?????

  21. Fird Birfle says:

    you might not FOOL us, but we do LURVE you anyhow !!

  22. ThirdShift says:

    Thanks peeps. Yeah, the “litle guy” is the greyhound, not so little; when he first came home he was a 72-lb lump of lurv and hand-licks. He’s down to 65 now, there’s a lump on his left flank which we biosied. Going to see the vet again today to discuss what to do, but it’s probably not good. Big breeds are proned to it, and recurrence even after surgery. It’s not highly survivable. 😦


  24. I’m so sorry for you, I know how hard it is when one of your furry babies is verry sick. Hang in there, know that you are my toughts.

  25. Pyrit says 18 dollops of dough, does that mean there was 18 puppeh? 😯

  26. I’m sorry for you and your little guy. Thinking good thoughts for you both.

  27. emmberrann says:

    Dat’s a lot of customers at de meelks bar! Is dere even room for alls of dem? I hope dat Mommy’s caretaker takes care of supplementals!!

  28. Oh so sorry. Dante always has plenty of spare purrs, sending healing vibrations your way.

  29. That is why Missis (Pongo) had Perdita to help with her pups. And the Dearlys helped, too. (Please see the book “The 101 Dalmatians” NOT the movie)

  30. har! that’s what i thought!

  31. TS, can you link to pictures of your big/little guy? Warm thoughts being sent 😦

  32. skippymom says:

    Skippyhugs on the way.

  33. ThirdShift says:

    Here’s one: http://i.imgur.com/TFWPr.jpg

    And another: http://i.imgur.com/KwaTE.jpg

    His name is Willoughby. We’re off to the vet.

  34. oh what a handsome fella! PLEASE keep us posted and know that we are all thinking about him ❤

  35. @ thirdshift
    Heart goes out to you. I just lost my number one son, Pup Doggy about 2 weeks ago and I am still a disaster area. He was the best thing that ever happened to me and I miss him terribly. Only thing you can do is just love on the little guy and keep him comfortable. I am sending positive energy to both of you.

  36. OMG, eighteen
    that’s about 800 spots!
    I’ll take a whole batch.

  37. No.

  38. Only if she is bringing a cake.

  39. 260Oakley says:

    Oh, that face! He’s a heart breaker. Stay strong, Mr. Willoughby.

  40. Oh, how beautiful! <3<3<3!!

  41. Oh Skippymom! How much poop do you think they produce?

  42. skippymom says:


  43. And would it be white with black dots? 😛

  44. ThirdShift, I Pinned him, because he is so beautiful. 🙂

  45. Please keep us posted! I hope Sir Willoughby pulls through.

  46. skippymom says:

    I certainly hope so.

  47. victoreia says:


  48. victoreia says:

    And check if any of them have “liver” colored spots! (Meaning brown spots, iirc….)

  49. Thank you, sweetie. It always helps to put a face with a name. Your boy is gorgeous! Stay strong and please keep us posted.

  50. Wow, that looks like a cookies and cream sundae in a really huge bowl. Get me a ladle, I mean spoon. Okay, I will just have a little lick.

  51. Oh, Willoughby, you’re as handsome as your namesake (I assume he’s named for Miss Marianne’s ill-fated love), but an angel instead of a cad…

    The girls and I wish you and your momma the best…

  52. Lol! Dagnabbit, now I’ve got calliope music earworm. Da da, dadadada, da da Dah da . . .

  53. A-men! All hail the Midnight Barking.

  54. emmberrann says:

    @Third Shift: Willoughby is a very Elegant Dog, with the most beautiful expressive eyes. I am sorry for his illness and pray for his swift return to complete health. I am always moved by the illness of people’s bffs (best furry friends) because I have been and always will be moved by the illness of my own late-and-much-beloved. I send you many hugs, TS, and will be thinking of you.

  55. Probably brown with white dots.

  56. His pix are so cute. He looks like quite the character! Love him up and make him happy and keep good thoughts. Fingers and paws crossed for the best possible outcome.

  57. Fird Birfle says:

    condolences to you as well. 😦

  58. Zola Bunny says:

    they look delicious….love a little spotty dog xxx

  59. I lurve the little spots on his legs! I am so sorry you have to go through this, and I’m praying for you and your “little” guy.

  60. Whatever you do, do NOT click on the link, Cutest Paw, unless you have the Hello Kitty defibrabob-thingy right beside you! Still have trouble breathing and I only looked for a few seconds! Leethal!

  61. ThirdShift says:

    One day when I have to write about him in the past tense, I’ll read these words and baroo my eyes out. Until then, thank you, Peeps of CuteOverload, for the outpouring of good will and affection. The outlook is not good for the little guy, the cancer is aggressive. He has about 3-6 months in which to get loved as much as possible. I’m sorry I don’t have better news.

  62. Fird Birfle says:

    WE LURVE YOU AND the lil’ guy!! You’ve UNDOUBTEDLY been the best part of his joie de vivre, TS 🙂 He will know he has been well-loved !!!

  63. I am so sorry. Hemangiosarcoma is one of the worst forms of cancer and so common in dogs. It’s aggressive, and hard to treat, and usually when they find it it’s already spread. 😦 I lost my lovely Shep/Dobie mix to it, and one of my good friends just lost her Wiemeraner to it. Give your boy lots of love, and take care of him and you, and know he is grateful for the wonderful life you’ve had together. (I also lost my lovely pittie to cancer, a different form, about two months ago so I know how hard this is for you and I’m sorry – it does get less sharp and you will start to have more good memories than sad and when that happens, that is a good day.) I really like the sentiment I read when my little girl passed back in June – a young child, whose family dog was passing overheard his parents talking about why dogs live such comparatively short lives to their people. The child said that he knew why: people are put on the earth to learn how to live good lives and to love people. Dogs already know how to do that when they’re born, so they don’t have to stay as long.

  64. He is truly loved, and is so lucky to have you. I firmly believe that you have given him a more wonderful life than anyone else ever would have. He loves you, as much as you love him. I hope one day I can be as brave as you and he are being together.

    It sounds corny, but I believe in the rainbow bridge. I believe that we see them again, and that they are there to help us as much in the afterlife as they gave us love and help here. My heart is with you on this journey.

  65. And that has WHAT to do with anything?

  66. What Janie4 said. Blessings to you and Willoughby.

  67. The Count from Sesame Street counts things.

  68. Mom’s expression is like: “You’re gonna do *what* to my babies!?”
