Am I 8 or 80?

So, the little girl in me is transfixed by this Shiba Inu puppy cam. Oh Lord, it's adorable. As I type this, two of the puppies are play-fighting over some type of pink plush toy. I am in love. These dogs are actually one of my favorite breeds. No matter that it took me until this year to finally keep the name in my brain. I used to just always say, "you know, those dogs that look like foxes."

Also, I saw the trailer for Marley and Me yesterday and actually felt myself welling up with tears of sugar-overloaded joy. I couldn't even stop myself from squealing out loud to no one, "Oh my GOD that's so cuuuuuuute! I am totally going to seeeee thaaaaat!" (I was only briefly interrupted by real tears of fear when Kathleen Turner appeared.)

I tried watching both the puppy cam and the trailer again without smiling, and it's physically impossible. Farting, burping, and sneezing simultaneously with my eyes open would be an easier feat. I want to breed Marley with all of the girl Shiba Inus so they have dozens upon dozens of pups, and then we will all go live together on Big Rock Candy Mountain in a castle next to a chocolate waterfall. Wait, no no no. I'm being ridiculous. The dogs might go swimming in the waterfall and accidentally swallow some chocolate. Dogs can't have chocolate! How silly of me. No, the waterfall will have to be vanilla. I like vanilla better anyway, so I really don't know why that wasn't my first choice. I need to stop being so impulsive and really take the time to plan these things out.

Balancing out all this girliciousness is my post today over at Fire That Agency, in which you will find me complaining like an old lady about these damn kids today, their crazy button-fly jeans, and their sexual irresponsibility. I do like their rock 'n' roll music though.


UPDATE: Omigod omigod omigod. The puppies are all napping together now. I am about to pass out.

*squeeeeeeeee* (piglet-like sounds)

Thanks for making my ovaries clench, Beckeye. Thanks a bunch!

PS - I vote caramel waterfall. Caramel is safe for dogs, right?

Some young lass I was sitting behind in a meeting was watching that puppy cam on her laptop all meeting long after admitting to me that she was "obsessed with it." I instantly knew we'd never be together.

Maybe it's because I don't have ovaries, but I don't get it. Then again, I can spend six hours watching the NFL Draft, which no woman will ever understand, so I guess we're even.

Animal Planet zeroes in on this difference between people who like cute puppies and people who like the NFL Draft. Every year during the Super Bowl, they air the Puppy Bowl, which consists of about a dozen puppies playing in a giant playpen made to look like a football stadium. They tumble, they wrestle, they cock their heads curiously. And at "halftime" of the Puppy Bowl, there is a show performed by kittens. Well, not so much performed as ruined, since kittens rarely do what they're supposed to.

Also, apropos of nothing, the best part of the NFL Draft is watching the highly touted prospect who drops farther and farther until he is the only one left in the green room, calculating how much money he has lost in the last two hours. It's especially enjoyable when this prospect is from Notre Dame, like Brady Quinn in 2007.

I have seen bits of the Puppy Bowl, Fran. It's not nearly as awesome as the Puppy Games though.

This might be a sickness. You should seek medication. Or adopt something.

And I think the waterfall should be of Skittles.

PUPPIES!!! PUPPIES!

PaD,
No woman understands how I can watch six hours of the NFL Draft, either. It's not just you.

I'm glad I came here just so I learned there was a Puppy Draft...

Whoever gets the Matt Leinart puppy must be spewing

Those puppies are super cute. I just tuned into the cam, and one of them was humping the big carrot.

And may I add that a few scenes were filmed right in my own West Chester. I'll repost the vids when the movie comes out.

MelO said...

PUUUUUUHHHHHHPPPPPPPPPPIES!!

awwww... I want one now! Right now! Also, that Marley movie is going to be good-did you read the book? OMG... I read it right after we had to put my 17 year old "puppy" down and I cried like a frickin' baby through the whole damn thing!

But I'll do it all over again when the movie comes out :)

Tootsie said...

What? It's just a couple of dogs laying around on a rug! Simply mind blowing. Hmmm, not fond of the Westie are we?

Red said...

I heart puppies more than people. These little guys are so adorable!

Also, my mom used to feed our dog chocolate all the time and he was fine. I think that might be a myth...or maybe all the chocolate is what caused our dog to have multiple strokes and die. Wow. Sorry to be a downer. Go back and look at the puppies!!!

LoraLoo said...

Ok I absolutely HAD to check out the puppy cam - lucky for me they're all sleeping, cause I'd probably get totally sucked in. Soooooooo freakin' cute.

I saw the preview for Marley and Me, and yeah... I'll be Netflixing that, so as to not make a complete blubbering idiot of myself when I cry uncontrollably.

Just make sure you have a big electric fence around that place, so that no disease-ridden crackhead, murdering kids with button-up jeans break in and have nasty sex in front of the puppies.

WendyB said...

Warning: Shibas can be very naughty and difficult to train. Do not be fooled by cuteness! They are evil.

Falwless said...

Damn that made me laugh.

You're so like me, it's scary.

cube said...

Your puppy cam reminded me how much I miss Shirley The Fez-Wearing Pigeon Cam

Alas, it is no more.

pistols at dawn said...

Words Cubed and Genn, thank you for understanding.

Also, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who enjoys the misery of the last (ideally Irish) member of the green room whose failure is broadcast for hours on national TV.

Slave to the dogs said...

Actually if you're true to the lyrics of Big Rock Candy Mountain, that waterfall is made of booze.

Have you watched the Christian the Lion video? Makes me bawl every time I see it.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

heading over to read your post about youth today. I have one if anyone wants him but act now he turns 18 in two weeks....

I think I just got a cavity.

Your post cracked me up and the comments cracked me up too.

Love this blog.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
