The Abdominal Snow Dog

Sender-inner Shelly P. sent her pooch Augustus to play outdoors, and things just kind of snowballed from there. But "Augie" seems perfectly pleased to be snowed in, don't you think?


Smile, Augie!  Shelly suggests that a permanent toothy grin become a new Rule of Cuteness. What say you?

Ooooh...so cold! Quick, defrost him!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:12 AM

Lurve the snaggletooth!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:14 AM

She looks like she was rolling around in marshmallows!! Very cute!

Abominable? Abdominal seems wrong... or I don't get it :(

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:16 AM

First order of business: get that pup a hair dryer!

Secondly: HELP! Not sure what's going on, but I'm having trouble seeing all the comments on some of the posts. Any post that exceeds about 50 comments, and they just seem to stop. I see the numbers going up, but I can't see any of the new comments. I noticed this in both the laughing dog and the cool koala post. The only way I can see all the comments is to start posting my own, and hit "preview". Then I can scroll down and see all the previous comments, but they're not visible in the main comment section. I've tried refreshing, to no avail. Anyone else having this problem? And anyone know how I can fix it?

[It's not a "problem" exactly; TypePad has added basic pagination to all of the blogs they host, including Cute Overload. Posts with > 50 comments now have "Next" and "Previous" buttons at the bottom. - Ed.]

My daft long haired cat, would insist on keep going out in the snow and ending up in a similar state. Then siting on my Afghan rug to lick the snowballs off.

Augie's growing his own snowballs (haha...take your mind out of the gutter folks!).

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:19 AM

steppy seconds the motion for new rule of cuteness.

Passes adorable puppy nice warm blankie and plenty of snuggles

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:23 AM

"Abomiable' is the real name but, the snow is on the dog's abdomen. Ah, well, still cute. A nice, warm bath will fix the prob in 2 minutes!

Augustus is precious!

Cheesybird- we get to eat a small frosted snack cake every time Theo says "Type pad is working on it". *Snerk* There comes those 26 pounds coming right back on!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:23 AM

Not a rule of cuteness... it's cute on this pup, but I don't think it would work for all anipals

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:23 AM

LOL, that's what our dog looks like as well after a few moments in wet snow. She comes in and looks like she wants to be a moveable icecube tray!

Mojitos, anyone??

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:26 AM

@ Lils: Yes please!! With extra mint leaves.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:28 AM

Ooh, Katrina, make mine a Hostess Cupcake!

Although a Sno-Ball WOULD be more post appropriate.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:44 AM

it's been like, 45 minutes, and I should really do some work...sigh. ...I could spend all day here on co....as a matter of fact, I would love to spend all day here. Tell you what, I will work for, say, an hour, then check back, OK?? *brightens considerably*

haha. i always see videos of ppls short hair dogs playing in snow at get jealous. my dog gets those crazy snow lumps too! they don't just melt away, even in a hot bath. you have to like hack at them for hours n_n

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 06:54 AM

Oh my - snowy dangly bits! How does this HAPPEN?! I want to monsche them.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 07:11 AM

How about the abdominable snowBALL dog.....?

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 07:13 AM

aw its poor vulnerable pink belleh! The snowballs look like cotton wool.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 07:26 AM

My dog was having this problem yesterday, but only on the bottom of her legs and feet. That was as far as the snow came up to her. She loves snow, though. She runs around in it and eats it and sticks her nose in it, it's amazing how she doesn't seem to mind the cold.

Anyway, this is a very cute doggie. Hope it defrosts quickly.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 07:33 AM

Permanent toothy grin 100%=new rule of cuteness. Ms. Frsot, make it so! Please!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 07:44 AM

poor cold tummy. My golden retriever (g-d rest her sweet happy soul) used to get snowballs in her feathers and inter-toe floof. She would plop down and nibble them out.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 07:44 AM

D'oh!! Thanks for solving my "problem", Theo! I'd seen that "Next" button at the bottom of the comments page and just assumed it would take me to the next POST, but since I always just go back to the main page by hitting back, and then pick a post to read, I'd never tried it. Mystery solved!

Can I still have a Hostess Cupcake?

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 07:56 AM

Toothy Grin Cuteness Rule Addition: Agreed!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 07:59 AM

The new rule should be for snaggletoothed grins only. Snaggletoofs = anerable!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 08:22 AM

Our Cat has a snaggle tooth that is so cute.

Make it a rule, please!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 08:25 AM

Our cat has a snaggle tooth and it is so cute.

Make it a rule, please!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 08:26 AM

mmmmm . . . Hostess cupcakes!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 08:34 AM

Cheeseybird- Snowballs-oh, *snerkity-snerk*! Mine are little-pink-with-white-drizzling-heart-shaped Little Debbie Valentine's Cakes- come on over, I'll start the hot water for tea and to put in the nice,warm tub for the silly doggets that love to play in the snow.

Snack cakes all around, yes, Theo, for you, too!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 08:39 AM

I especially enjoy the discarded pink teddy in the background of the After picture, for some reason.

I miss my doggy!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 08:41 AM

I say YES! Snaggle teefs are always really cute!

On animals, anyway. O.o

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 08:43 AM

What's the difference between snowmen and snowgirls?





 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 08:47 AM

YES. Underbites are the cutest thing EVARRR. All of the cool dogs have them...

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 08:53 AM

Katrina...Thanks for the snack cakes!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 09:03 AM

My goggie gets these big snow balls all over him too! He's a bichon.. I wonder if it's the hair-type that gets the snow to stick there.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 09:05 AM

Katrina, I'll be right over!

And I'm wif y'all on the snaggleteefs. Our old Irish terrier had an underbite that meant she wasn't "show" worthy, but we thought it gave her the kyooooootest smile! Pah! What does the AKC know about cute, anyway?

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 09:09 AM

No on the snaggle tooth for me please. Again, cute in this instance, but most often I see it on dogs who have not had ANY oral care in their lives and that is not cute, it's gross and sad.

And this pic! I've never lived anywhere that gets much snow or with long haired dogs, but that looks like it hurts. Ouch!!

(NOT nuffing - I have no idea what it feels like - it just LOOKS painful, lol!)

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 09:22 AM

I wonder if Boomer would like snow... he LOVES the rain, and comes back inside black where he used to be pure white, says his human. Seems to me he loves the MUD.

I vote NO on the new rule of cuteness! Permanent toothy grins are the province of small, weepy-eyed, badly-behaved, spoiled dogs with stinky breath. UGH! Those small dogs can be cute (see previous CO posts), but they have to work a little harder at it. They can't be cute by fiat. No to the blanket rule!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 10:16 AM

The snaggletooth is a shih-tzu thing, I think, cause ours does it all the time too. They tend to have underbites and their lips get caught behind the bottom canines :P Adorable puppy! Cute haircut! Snowy balls, less cute, but I love how he's just chillin' on his back with his feets up in the air!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 10:18 AM

Oh this is how cotton balls grow. For some reason, I always thought they grew on a plant. Gee, you learn something new every day, don't you?

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 11:42 AM

My schnauzer lofs the snow - and he gets lots of snowballs in his beard, skirt and floofy legs. He seems to think it's AWESOME becoming a snowballdoggie!

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 11:56 AM

Looking at the second picture, I cannot help but think that the big daddy of this fuzzball had a part in The Empire Strikes Back. He was the monster that hung Luke Skywalker upside down in his cave. The resemblance is uncanny.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 01:07 PM

Not fond of the permanent toothy grin, no.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 01:41 PM

that bebbeh looks so *happy* to be covered in snowballs. maybe it's the fluffy towel held by loving hands...i love that pic....

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 01:43 PM

no offense to the goggies, but the toothy grins kinda freak me out. my vote's no for a rule of cuteness.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 02:02 PM

Yesh, toothiness is a virtue. My white English Bulldog has many toothy options: both fangs up, one fang up, tiny little rice-teeth up, no teeth up. All options are preesh.

I am certainly not saying that any of the oddly toothed animals described by my fellow posters are not cute. However, I do not believe that every mega-toothy animal is necessarily cute. I'm voting no on the rule, but will respect the decision of the community.

 |  Feb 05, 2009 at 02:24 PM

What is this "snow" you speak of?

Where I live, you don't even need long sleeves outside today. :( It's freaking February.
