Let's hear it for the Soft Kronche™

Do you know what I mean? The "Soft Kronche™" is when a dog takes a really slow, soft bite on something—real gentle-like—I love that. They're like: "Is eet OK to bite?" Like when they take a treat, it's a responsible, soft, kronche.

Oh... the eyes. The sweet soft little "cronche". You just wait, he'll (she'll?) start CRONCHE!!!-ing it soon enough, and then we'll have photos of the ensuing tug-o-war.

Okay, just shoot me now. That "paws up" kittypic almost did me in. This finishes it off.

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 12:02 PM

Tse paws, and the litle ears, and the eyes... aww I wants it.

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 12:15 PM

It's cute on it's own...then you notice it's size in relation to the human paw beside it and suddenly it becomes the UBER CUTE OF DOOM!
*makes grabby hands at screen and whimpers*

Could those little claws be any cuter?! And those please play with me eyes! Lovin' it!


 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 12:24 PM

If I lean closely enough to the screen, I think I can smell the puppy breath. LOVE HEEM!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 12:30 PM

Those soft bites don't come natural, I've had to spend many hours teaching mine to take things "nicely" as I tell them.

Lulu - Yes!!! Must touch the Uber Cute NOW!!, even though it will melt me into helpless puddle of goo!!!!!!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 12:33 PM

SoftKronche sounds like some kind of ice cream treat, or chocolate bar. Now I'm hungry.

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 02:21 PM

I would buy him all the toys in Petco.

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 02:23 PM

My dad had a dog (golden lab, I think) who was really good with the Soft Kronche. She was very gentle when she took things out of you hand (treats, toys, etc). It was really nice, I was never worried when I gave her stuff. She was a really sweet dog in general.

How adorable is that?!!? Just thinking about Soft Kronche makes my teeth go all chewy. "Nyeh nyeh nyeh nyeh nyeh."

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 03:24 PM

Yes, Cuteness Lover, that is exactly what we tell our dogs. "Nicely". It's so funny, if we repeat it a couple of times they get so "careful" that only their lips open up to take the treat.

My G-pig Zoe had 5 babies on Thursday night! Just after my daughter and I left on vacation! The little bugger. My son called to tell us they were born. Sooooo cute! :)

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 03:42 PM

*soft kronche* is also the sound that my head made when it sploded from the cute overload of round puppy eyes.

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 03:42 PM

Aww! Puppyeyes FTW!

I've been going to this site ever since slashdot mentioned it..lol.


 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 03:42 PM

Lauri, congrats on your extended cuteness!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 03:49 PM

Little sweet feet!!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 03:51 PM

Let's not forget the every day item making it look small... The thumb nail is almost as big as the nose! OMG!!!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 04:17 PM

omg, it looks jus like my Jack Russel when he was a pup!
I wana snorgle those ears so bad *sigh*

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 04:27 PM

Now that puplette IS anerable, but the toy does look unfortunately like it's a big ole pair of testicles.....
(C'mon - I can't be the only person who thought this, surely?!) Perhaps this was deliberate, to limit the Head-Explosion Factor...?

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 04:29 PM

OMG! that is adorable!!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 04:35 PM

That is soo cute!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 05:23 PM

OMG what an adorable puppy!!!!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 06:24 PM

Cutener, I don't mean to get personal, but if your testicles look like THAT, perhaps it's time to get your gear to a doctor.

I'm just sayin'...

Heh! When my pug takes a treat, it's like a violent treat-annihilating tsunami of fury. She's a bit maniacal, though. The day she "cronches" will be the day I take a nap without constantly fearing a dog making out with me. Is it weird that I've learned to like sleeping with a pillow on my face for safety?

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 06:41 PM

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! The eyes! The ears! The sweet little round head! *thud*

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 06:58 PM

Aww. I am not a puppy person, but that is one seriously cute pupster. Schweet!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 07:45 PM

Thanks, Q...we are enjoying our babies to the max!

Meg....which animals do YOU have at home? You definitely understand and have perfected the terminology.....moist nosicles and soft kronches, ...honk-shu, muzzlepuffs....oh soooo perfect!! :)

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 07:45 PM

...and the ultimate.......squeeeeeeee

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 07:46 PM

I liked the question about which of his feet was on the toy.... I like to imagine (look closely at the picture) that he has only THREE feet!

Just because the other back leg is hidden doesn't prove it exists. Muah-ha-hah.

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 08:00 PM

I have no ani-pals at home! None! C.O. is my virtual pet.

In the past and growing up, however, we had cats, a dog and LOTS of aquarium fish.

I think everyone knows the Soft Kronshe, right? It's not rocket surgery!


 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 08:08 PM

As I say when I see puppies at work...

Dawww...lookit dat face!!!!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 08:58 PM

*undignified squeaking noises*

So CWOOT! Eek!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 09:49 PM

I think retrievers were bred (and trained) not to "bust birds" -- that is, bring them back more-or-less intact to the hunter with the shotgun. Their instinct, like with most predatory animals, would probably be just to eat it. The fact that they can overcome their "nature" the way we humans do (in some limited way) may not be rocket surgery... but it surely is brain science.

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 09:55 PM

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH *blood curdling scream* I LOVE TEH KRONCHE!

 |  Jul 04, 2006 at 10:04 PM

This little one is called Tara . A friend pointed out that Tara is "A Rat" backwards. She was only about 10 week old and less than a kilogram when the photo was taken.

Yes, grrrromit, it is a bit weird to sleep with a pillow on one's face. But I'm won't criticise your adaption to a hostile environment. Wanting a pillow may well be a survival trait.
