Hmm, I could be wrong, but I thought onions were something that shouldn't be fed to dogs (like chocolate), and that hamburger appears to have a red onion on it.

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 05:12 PM

Lub that tounge!!

Awwwwww. :)

This is so cute!

Yet... unhealthy?

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 05:27 PM

yeah, cute but onions aren't good for dogs.

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 05:44 PM


Calm down everyone. Let's just enjoy the cuteness of the picture!

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 05:47 PM

Onions are dangerous to feed both dogs and cats, but the amount they have to consume to be harmed is rather large. (See the link.) A dog that weighs 20-25 lbs. would have to consume over a pound of onion to really be harmed. It is doubtful that a ring of onion on a burger is going to harm a dog of this size. If he was eating that everyday, he could be affected.

My guess is that the onion and all that are on there just to make the "cake" look pretty. I would imagine if the dog got to eat this at all, he got the patty and nothing else.

Num num NUM. Gimme gimme gimme!

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 06:21 PM

I love it!

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 06:23 PM

I agree with Errata. Atticus should definitely not be allowed to eat this burger. Onions are not for dogs.

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 06:37 PM

That dog's big for one year old. And judging from the size of his paws, he's going to be a MONSTER! grrrr...

Vet explains dogs 'n onions stuff (not, not *hot* dogs!):


I bet Atticus enjoyed his.

Dog tongues may be common, but they're no less cute than bunny, hamster or squirrel tongues. Just look at this, people! We have to learn to take a second look at dog tongues of the world that we otherwise may take for granted. Take a look at the dog tongue in your own home today and appreciate!

As for the onions, the owner will learn. Oh yes. They will learn.

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 07:08 PM

ok all these ppl complaing about that onion just took a very cute piture and turned it ugly. i love the picture and think atticus is so adorable with his birthday treat and to be fair maybe the owner didn't realize onions are bad i have had dogs while growning up and all my life and didn't know that with all that dogs consume i'm thinking a very tiny bit of onion is alittle better than drinking out of the toilet

Oh my gosh, that dog looks tortured!! *I want the beef!*

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 07:37 PM

Whoo-ee. Onion AND puppy breath. Get that boy a breath mint, PRONTO! ;-)

As to the onion-howlers, a dog that size would have to eat a LOT of onions--and manage to keep the stuff down in the first place--to suffer any harm. C'mon folks, take the broomstick out and chillax, yo!

Do you guys have e-cards to send with cute stuff on them? That would be swell.

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 07:56 PM

You people complaining about people complaining about onions are reading a lot of emotion where there is none. I don't think the onion people used a single exclamation point, while the reactions to them certainly did. Nor did they demonize anyone. "be fair maybe the owner didn't realize onions are bad" - precisely why its worth a polite mention.

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 08:24 PM

Great idea on the ecards, Edwina. I need a sweet programmer to work that up for us.

Theo, you totally had me fooled with your 13-year old comment. I love it. And thanks for teaching me what "<3" is.

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 09:18 PM


Happy B-Day pup!

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 10:06 PM

i doubt a dog would eat onions... so he's probably ok. i don't know, though. my dog eats aluminum foil sometimes... lol.

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 10:06 PM

Is that even a real burger? I've never seen lettuce that...green.

The dog looks like he's trying to hypnotize the burger. "You're getting veeeery sleeeeepy. Now, when I snap my fingers (?!?) you'll jump onto my tongue!"

Either that or he's got a Gene Simmons tongue and he's about to lick the burger up from where he sits.

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 10:15 PM

Hungry? Grab a poisonous burning hunk of birthday goodness

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 10:15 PM

wow, people are all over animal rights these days. My friend's dog ate two (or was it three) batches of chocolate truffles and he was perfectly find, he threw up a lot, but he was fine. Dog's have amazing immune systems, I say screw the doggy health crap and let them eat what they want to a point. But the dog is adorable! I love retreivers. I wonder how long after that pic was taken the dog was on the table and the tounge was busy slurping?

 |  Mar 20, 2006 at 10:25 PM

Give me, giveme, give me!

Hey, Atticus here! Please let me have my burger MY WAY. After I eat the onion, I'm going to back up to the table and pooty-toot the candle out! Happy birthday to me! Next year I'm not inviting you guys, I'll just go to Burger King :o)

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 03:30 AM

should've wished for 100 million cheeseburgers

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 04:38 AM

I use to take my dogs to the park, and run through the McDonalds drive thru and get plain hamburgers for them. They loved it! Spoiling dogs...good idea! Happy Birthday Atticus!!

Too adorable! ^_^

You shouldn't feed a dog 50 million hamburgers, it would probably get sick!

Hmm now imagine 50 million dogs eating one hamburger each. Much better.

The wind from all those the wagging tails might start a tornado!

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 06:31 AM

Carlisa: Pooty-toot...That's funny!!!!

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 06:51 AM

I'd just like to take this moment to complain about all the people complaining about all the people complaining. May we all get lumps of onion in our stockings.

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 07:01 AM

The crooked picture in the background is bugging me more than the thought of a dog (who has probably eaten more grotesque stuff than an onion in his puppyhood) eating a slice of onion. I guarantee we've all eaten stuff on our birthdays that was way worse than an onion is for a dog.

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 08:34 AM

That dog is super duper cute, by the way. Forgot to mention that while I was up on my soapbox. Makes me miss mine. Happy birthday pooch!

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 08:36 AM

lumps of onion in your stockins give you bunions. and corns.

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 08:56 AM

That onion isnt going to hurt the puppy. There isnt enough there to cause him any damage. What you should be worried about is if that dog might get overly excited and burn himself by jumping up to get that flaming burger D:

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 09:19 AM

i have to admit, the first thing i noticed when i looked at this picture was the onion. i was like, onions are bad for dogs!! it made it harder to appreciate the cuteness, because i didnt want the dog to get sick.

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 09:55 AM

Hey smileyme, it's not animal rights, it's called responsible pet ownership. Maybe your friend needs a lesson in that? 'ate 2 batches of truffles and threw up a lot but he's fine'. In people that's called food poisoning.

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 10:15 AM

Listen...The dog doesn't even like burgers -with OR w/o onions! Can't you see him sticking his tongue out it? What I'm concerned about is the porno flick showing on the tube in the background!

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 10:30 AM

LOL Carlisa -- or what about that can of Krylon on the kitchen table?

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 10:59 AM

...and, my goodness, I hope the family remembers to treat that granite countertop with sealant, every couple of months. It just wouldn't do, for it to lose its lickproofing. Tongue-tastic!

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 11:01 AM

One more here. This pic reminds me of one I see every so often on the CuteTracker...

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 01:22 PM

"Hey, Atticus! Blow out the candle!"

"Eww! That burger has onion on it! *PBBBBBBBBT!!!*"

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 01:31 PM

why is everyone getting mad about the people who say the onion is bad? onions are very bad and they can kill your CUTE dog. I would think all of you cute lovers would like to keep the animals alive too. I dont really care if he'd have to eat a lot to hurt him considerably, its better to just not give them to him. sheesh.

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 01:55 PM

his tougue is super adorable though <3

 |  Mar 21, 2006 at 01:57 PM

Jessica--we could say that about cornmeal. Or soy protein. Or anything else that wasn't 100% meat. But it's not like he eats that every day, right?

(Oh, and don't read what dog food has in it. Meat is hardly the top ingredient in most of them. And most of what IS in it is what got left behind at the slaughterhouse. Think I'm kidding? Hit the pet food aisle and be prepared to shudder in horror.)

The tongue, however, trumps all arguments and discourse in this thread. FEEL TEH LEET HAXORPOWER OF TEH TOOOOOOONGUE!!11!one!

Theo---That's funny! And Katie---worried about the crooked picture on the wall. We sure are nosey people aren't we? haha! I bet everyone went back to double check those things and to see if there really was a porn flick running in the background---for shame! At least it took their minds of that onion for a minute :o)
