You know that guy in college—the guy that owns the van that everyone piles into to go to Taco Bell? You know—he's the guy who has a cassette tape that gets stuck in the van tape player, and everyone has to sing the same Bob Marley songs for four years? And his last name is "Donahue", so the van is nicknamed "Dona-van"? And he glues antlers on his scooter helmet, and insists everyone barbeque with him constantly? Remember that guy?

Well, this is the puppy that guy eventually gets for his kids.


Welcome to the family, Millie! (XOXOX, Joey D.!)

Such soulful eyes....

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 04:35 PM

His eyes just scream, "I know you love me. You can't help youself."

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 04:45 PM

I just want to snatch him up and snuggle!

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 04:49 PM

That is the best caption I have ever read :)

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 04:51 PM

Wow, he is a cutie! he's like
"i know, I was born this way!"

The way the caption keeps getting bigger, I'm assuming there are some private jokes going on..... That, or I'm just particularly dense today because none of it is meaning a whole lot to me. The puppy is cute in that cute puppy sort of way, though.

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 04:58 PM

Oh my gosh...I so needed this face this afternoon...He just has that "I want to come home with you, play with you, and be there to welcome you home every day" look!!!


 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 04:59 PM

*head explodes*

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 05:11 PM

So where are MY antlers???

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 05:12 PM

this pup is *agressivily* cute.

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 05:17 PM

"Hi! I'm your friend! I shall love you excessively forever!"

This li'l guy looks just like the lab we had growing up, Digger. Ahn! I'm sure this pup o' luv will be just as sweet and fun - and a willing participant in some crazy hijinks not ever to be revealed to the parental units!

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 06:03 PM

Waaiit..I think I knew that guy! Probably not, but there's a couple of them on every campus!

But this puppah...if you view the larger picture you can just make out the soft downy cheek puff...he looks like such a brave lil' puppah too!

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 06:27 PM

Meg -- in some alternate reality, I swear we must've gone to the same college. Except I think you made up the part about the scooter antlers.

You wouldn't've recognized me then, though; I basically had a mane.

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 06:29 PM

The paws people, the paws!! And those darling little toes. This is the puppy I want to greet me in heaven.

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 06:34 PM

Look at the background--do these lucky kids have *two* such dogs?

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 06:51 PM

A cassette tape, Meg? You're showing your age! :P

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 06:53 PM

Oh oh oh OH!!

I work with this guy...and his dog's name is..um..something from Star Trek The Next Generation....

however, I am the Last generation. I am Generation One of Star Trek. I was in 7th grade when the war to get the third year renewed was going.

Anyway.....This puppy....she is gorgeous...she is the future.....MMMMMuuuuuu Waaaaaaah.

Big Kiss to her.

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 07:08 PM

Aaaaaah....the guy I work with...his name is Dona----hue!!!!!

Neener neener neener......

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 07:09 PM

This puppy wants to get wet.
That's what the big toes are for, is for swimming.
What a great looking little guy.
Laurie, we are exact comtemps.
Still mad they cancelled the original series -- though the SNL skit on it is sheer genius.

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 07:20 PM

I KNOW I went out with that guy!

What an old dog (the eyes!!) living in a tiny widdle puppy bod!

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 07:56 PM

That doglet is so cute, it's painful!

Cathryn Bauer
 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 08:50 PM

What dears they are!

 |  Jul 09, 2006 at 09:22 PM

Of course you know that if pups could speak, this one would be saying, "DUUUUUUDE!"

This guy may have had his faults in college, but he can't be all bad, to buy such a charming dog to his kids.

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 03:57 AM

Pleeeze fill my pool with some cool water! I'm ready for my paddling and splashing session now...

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 04:07 AM

I want to put him in my pocket and take him everywhere.....

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 05:23 AM

Awww!!! That pool needs to be filled and splash-alarity will ensue! Darling baby!

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 06:07 AM

It's all about the paws people - silky toes. And the wrinkly ears, cuz you know they are too big for that oh-so-cute face.

And while he'll grow, he'll still stay that puppy cute at heart...

Kris, in New England
 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 06:20 AM

Yes, puppy, I love you too!

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 07:56 AM

If I'm not mistaken, that's a Black Lab, and they act like puppies for like three years (long after they're FULL-SIZED DOGS).
You *will* play, oh yes you will.

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 08:02 AM

Theo, that is certainly a black lab, looks just like mine did when he was a puppy. You're wrong about one thing though, labs stay puppies until they are about 10! And they are never quite convinced that they aren't really lap dogs. :-)

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 08:23 AM

[leans in toward the laptop screen...]

lick, lick, lick, smlurf!

[blurgh, she got me in the mouth!]

:-D )))

You are
on BOTH counts, sir!!!

you guys r silly
 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 09:11 AM

Oh, it's true .. black labs do stay puppies until way past 4. When we bought ours they said that she would act like a pup until 4 .. She's turning 8 in September and she's still as much of a pup as she ever was! Only now after a full day of playing (she never stops!) she's a little slower than she used to be!

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 09:30 AM

I wanna pup. :*

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 09:56 AM

Heeeeee! I want to see him swim in the pool. :)

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 10:34 AM

OH for god's sake. Meg, I am sick of this. I am reporting you to The Authorities. This constant displaying of The Cute - each one I think is THE CUTEST and then another comes along to be THE CUTEST - is affecting industry all over America. I am compelled, nay, FORCED, to many times each day visit here to find more of The Cute. And I have told many other formerly industrious worker-bees of this display of The Cute and now THEY too are forced to come here. You are destroying our fine capitalist heritage.

P.S. What happened to The Daily Bunny? Was that just a 1-week event?

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 10:47 AM

Meow House -- yeah, the "regular features" here on CO tend to be a bit fluid. It's a matter of having a limited span of atten-- OOH MAILMAN!! ROOF ROOF ROOF [bounds away panting]

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 12:14 PM

Meg, you really out-did yourself with the caption. Not only is the puppy mind-blowingly cute (and clearly awaiting the hose that will fill that puppy pool), the caption perfectly describes the kind of guy who's always the go-to guy for goofy fun and ends up being a great dad (though at times an extra child to his wife!).

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 02:05 PM

Millie looks just like my baby looked about a year ago. Now, 60 pounds later I sniffle for the days when I could scoop her up. Or maybe I should just snorgle the little dona-dog.

Clearly someone who enjoyed spontaneous trips to taco bell wouldn't mind me randomly dropping by to lay on the floor and kiss on his puppy's ears? The ears are so soft. Look at them! must. touch.

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 02:39 PM


I got home at 2am, rocketed out of bed half an hour late, went mach 10 and made it to work on time, downed 60+ ozs of caffeinated beverage just to make it through the day, came crawling home, fired up the ol' browser, and see this. Stick a fork in me, I'm just going to babble incoherently at my screen until I fall asleep drooling now. It's good to be home :-D.

Deeeeeeeeeep breaths, Elfie. In through the nose, out through the mouth.

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 05:30 PM

I agree with above comment- this site has destroyed my personal productivity; my GPA is sure to follow...

I'll always be an aussie lover, but goodness, labs make the cutest puppies!! And it's true, they never lose the devotion you can see in those eyes.. aww.. *sniff* I need a puppy to cuddle, right now.. I wonder if my downstairs neighbor, whom I've never actually spoken to, would mind if I went and knocked on his door in my pjs and asked if I could just cuddle w/his lab for a few moments..

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 07:24 PM

This little guy and the latest Daily Kitten share one characteristic:


Why is that so feverishly cute?

 |  Jul 10, 2006 at 08:48 PM

Awwwwwwwwww!so cute!those little eyes.He looks like my dog when he asks for food(exept i got a daushound A.K.A weiner dog and mine squeals when he wants food

 |  Jul 11, 2006 at 03:47 AM

Exquisite puppulence.

 |  Jul 11, 2006 at 06:15 AM

Awwwwww! Who's a sweet wittew fluvva bubsy wub.

I defy you to look at that picture for more than five seconds without breaking down.

You can't do it, can you?

 |  Jul 11, 2006 at 03:31 PM

It's true that lab pups are sweet babies for years on end. And while the color of the lab doesn't matter in terms of temperament, this lil' dude is a chocolate lab. The part of him in the sun is brown. And his pretty blue-green eyes will change to amber as time goes on.

My own pupper is a chocolate lab, and we just got news that we'll soon be adding one more to the family. I can't wait!
