And Now, a Message from the Tongue

Hello there. While my owner is asleep, I’d like to address some misconceptions people have about us tongues. People think it’s all cute in here, but it’s hot and gooey and tastes like dog!


So when you see him panting? That’s us trying to escape. Not for good, just for a little while — get out, dry off, get some sun. Is that too much to ask?


From faithful reader/sender-inner Momo H.: “Hello from TAIWAN! I would like to introduce NiuNiu to the wonderful CO world, She is a 7 year old french bulldog seized during a puppymill raid by the Taiwan SPCA. From a dog who first jerked at any hoomin touch, to a dog that was confident, bootful and loved. But one thing remained constant from day one, she just can’t seem to get that tongue contained!”

    It’s amazing what a little love can do, huh? You have one gorgeous little girl there, Momo. I wish you both a lifetime of joy (though it seems you’ve both found exactly that). 🙂

  3. She is completely adorable, including her little tongue! Thank you for giving this sweetie a loving home!

  4. Sleepy puppy + tongue + little doggie heart jammies = so cute

  5. ScoutC, you forgot wrinkles. 🙂

  6. An excellent dispatch from the front……. uummm inside…. NOMTOM. You have raised my consciousness about the plight of tongues everywhere, especially in dogs (“tastes of dog” – brilliant).

  7. No offense, but that looks more like a Shar Pei than a French Bulldog. Perhaps a mix of the two? Or maybe English Bulldog? Still, very cute no matter the breed.
