Le sigh, Bert. Le sigh. ;)

Poor doggie. He looks so
What have I done to deserve this?"

I love the look on that pup's face. So prosh!

PS. I'm delighted that CO now displays properly with Firefox on my new iMac -- huzzah!

I think poor Bert epitomizes the "Cute or Sad?" designation.

"Cheer up there, puppers! At least you look good in red!"

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 04:41 PM

Oh - my - god!

This is so sad. And cute. Definitely cute.

He deserves loads of hugs and treats for this one!

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 04:48 PM

The forehead nubbins, with the up-tilted walleyes and the sad lip droop all combine to make what is known as a "Doggy Sadness Trifecta." When used properly on a human pushover, this trifecta can result in things like, hugging, belly rubs, bacon, etc.

Hey! Didn't I just see this picture when I looked up "puppy dog eyes" in the dictionary?

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 05:06 PM

Hee hee--I can practically see that evil new floor in his shiny widdew eyeses! *LOL*

...too freakin much!

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 05:20 PM

What a pouty, disgruntled puglet! Don't blame him one iota.

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 05:29 PM

Aww, poor lil'guy ):

I love his eyes so, so much!

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 05:33 PM

I am in love. I am also a pushover. I would be giving him hugs and belleh rubs and bacon.
yep pushover and i think it is written on my forehead so only dogs can read it.

Guh...I can't believe that poor dog has to wear those socks for the rest of his life whenever he's on their precious new floor. Way to love your pet.

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 06:08 PM

I would have solved the problem by carrying Bert everywhere - his little feetses would never have to touch the floor!

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 06:33 PM

I'm with you CP. Hoping the situation is temporary, for instance, until they can get the poor guy to a groomer or the vet for a little nail trim.

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 06:34 PM

*whistfully* we once had nice, shiney, smooth, lickable polished wooden floor boards. We also have Jess, the Kelpie/Malamute who loves to chase balls down the hallway, thrown by my husband.... We now have a not so nice floor (but happy husband and dog).

We also ustahada galah called Bert... he flew away *still sad*....

Aw. Bert is one blue puppy. From my experience on hardwood floors, he'll only need to wear those sicks for a little while. Once the finish sets, no worries. I spent a few weeks of my life wearing socks all over the house in order to protect the floors.

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 06:52 PM

That's just totally so so sad. :(

That poor little guy.

He looks like he just had a wipe out on that new floor! Those socks are probably worse than ice skates!

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 07:36 PM

I love this puppy so much.
I really do.

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 07:46 PM

The second I saw this I exclaimed "AWWWW"! Poor baby!! He looks so sad. I hope Bert isn't condemned to wear those red socks forever! He is an adorable little guy!

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 07:59 PM

Ohhhh Bert!

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 08:02 PM

That picture should be in the dictionary next to the word "dejection."

Cathryn Bauer
 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 08:41 PM

Hahaha! That is the greatest facial expression. And the socks look like boxing gloves.

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 08:51 PM

Awww, poor puggacious puppy.

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 09:14 PM

i give this a full-on "sad"

i mean, who buys scratchable floors when there's a pup in the house?

these people are mad

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 09:47 PM

Aww, poor sad little pug. He just doesn't understand why people can't just accept him for who he is, scratchy toes and all. *sniffle* Come sit by me, little pup - I'll love you no matter what!

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 09:47 PM

I thought they were boxing gloves at first, too--which would (of course) make him a pugilist pug.

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 09:49 PM

Oh that FACE! That WONDERFUL face! And those EYES! And the pouty lip! *grabs chest dramatically* I am killt! *drops to floor*

Bert has the look of "You are cruel, cruel humans. Please, the joke's over, get these things off..."

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 10:31 PM

I can only imagine him trying to run around with no traction. Hi-larious!

 |  Dec 16, 2006 at 10:45 PM

LOL, reminds me of "The Moog" from "Willow the Wisp."

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 05:08 AM

The socks are cute-ish, but the poochie looks like a saaaaad paaaaanda (I hope you all get the South Park ref.).

Bert's parents should check out www.softpaws.com. Soft Paws are tips you can glue on to your dog or cat's claws to prevent scratching. I got them for my kitteh, Siegfried, because he would play on the leather couch and scratch it. Now, with soft paws-- BLUE soft paws-- he does not scratch anymore. I highly recommend for all pet owners!

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 06:42 AM

Aww, poor sad puggy. Come to Melissa's house where pugs go barepaw!

The poster did say his parents put in new floors, maybe he doesn't live w/ his parents and it's only when they visit...? Just a thought.

Bert is precious. Pugs are very good at making pathetic sad faces. My Henry Pug does it sometimes for no apparent reason.

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 06:54 AM

The Pergo cat sold them those floors.

Bert is so not pleased by the Pergo.

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 07:19 AM

Nobody's sad over the fact that society makes me wear underwear.

P. E.
You worry me.

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 09:28 AM

Pugs are ugly dogs.That aside this is the cutest/sadest looking dog I have ever seen he is just pitiful. I want to hold him and tell him that everything will be alright.

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 10:10 AM

I luff this puppy. I figure he's visiting, so he has to wear the socks. It could also be that the floors still have to cure.

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 10:53 AM

OMG! What a precious puddin' - that face is too much!

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 11:13 AM

Oh poor Bert!
Come and live with me little pug, I have no hard flooring just loads of cheap carpet for you to run about on, sockless and free!

Judy B
 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 11:23 AM

Then there are people like MY parents, who when putting in new flooring, put in something that "already looks like dog footprints".

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 12:16 PM

Call me a nuffer if you will, but this is sad. You don't get hardwood floors (or anything scratchable and expensive) if you have an active pup running around. You shouldn't do this to your poor poor adorable puppy :( He can't help the fact that he has nails, but you can control what ends up on the floor...

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 12:55 PM

I love this little dog! The face really made my day.

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 01:44 PM

I just want to scoop him up and cuddle him till he cheers up.

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 03:00 PM

Awwww....so sad! I agree - I just want to cheer that puppy up and spend the rest of my life making him happy.

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 03:25 PM

That is the most pitiful face I have ever seen! I had to laugh, because it's just so darned piffle ^^ Hee!

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 04:05 PM

trin - Flooring with paw prints? Baroo?

We have pine floors. They are scratched and dented all over. Pine is a soft wood. Gives the floors character. Our dog is fetch-obsessed. We are constantly kicking and tossing the ball for her around the house. As I type I am tossing the ball every 23.7 seconds (sometimes I toss it down the stairs to get an extra 30 second break.) I know I could hide the ball.
No basketball court here. No paw mittens. Happy dog clickety-clicks. And the floors just get better and better.

 |  Dec 17, 2006 at 04:55 PM

"saaaaad paaaaanda (I hope you all get the South Park ref.)"

Sarah, all I could remember was "Sexual Harrassment Panda", whose theme song is now running through my head.
