You rang?

Look, I KNOW I'm in the minority here, but dammit, dogs with front feet costumes are HIGH-larious. Don't fight me on this. Just squint your eyes and you can hardly see his back legs, it's so funny.

I think it's hysterical. He looks so nonchalant about it. "Yeah, I'm Superdog. What are you gonna do about it?"

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:23 AM

/back to look at orangs
//seriously, this may have to be my Valentine's day card.

Do my eyes deceive, or is that a greyhound? <3 I luff greyhounds...and I want that costume. It would make for some very comfy feety pajamas.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:24 AM

I can't laugh at this. My dog would never speak to me again!

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:28 AM

That's got to freak the dog out when it faces directly into a mirror.

"Dude, what the ...? That's my head, I recognize that, but ... GAAAAAAH!"

"Here I come, to save the DAAAAAAAAAAAY!" Or was that Mighty Mouse? Either way, darned cute!

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:29 AM

most of the time i LOVE dogs in front feet costumes... they usually make me laugh so hard. but this one... that dog looks so sad :( look! his tail's between his legs :(

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:30 AM

I REALLY wanted to do this to my dog on Halloween last year but my husband wouldn't let me. Said something about the dog's dignity or whatevah.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:30 AM

Methinks it's a Super Whippet. That is definitely hilarious!!!

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:30 AM

Meg, you just crack me right up...

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:34 AM

1) Greyhounds are like German Shepards, they don't lift their tails.
2) What is with everyone taking things so personally? I don't care if You think something's cute. I don't even care if I think it's cute...I'll probably melt at the next thing Meg puts up.
3) Three cheers for the CO team! They do so much to bring us the cute; we have no right complaining, because we can't do it better.
4) Puppy! SuperCute.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:39 AM

Dude! Pink is the new Blog TOTALLY linked to you in today's post! You're now officially a supastah.

Although that dog is kinda scaring me.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:42 AM

Disturbing, yet cute.
Man, MY dogs would wig out if I put a damn bow on their collars (only at Christmas and on their birthdays, of course).

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:46 AM

...and whippet good.

I'd like to see a video clip of SuperPooch trotting around in his Secret Identity duds.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:51 AM

I have a Whippet at home and I now know what he will be wearing this Halloween. It's going to be soooo funny walking him around the neighborhood! Sweet revenge for all the times he’s peed on the carpet!

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:58 AM

Ha. That dog looks so annoyed.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 11:06 AM

Who's a pretty Superpup? You are! Faster than a speeding whippet! Able to leap tall hydrants in a single bound!

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 11:18 AM

No no no - it's been said before - clothing on animals is just plain wrong. They are already dressed - in fur.

Ick. Dog is cute though, in a Nichole Richie sort of way.

I always have to laugh at dressed up animals...some love it, some hate it (people and the animals themselves). I can't get clothing on my dog at all (other than when he used to wear a sweater for warmth as a pup). I bought him a "rock star" costume from Target one year, but he wouldn't let me get the whole thing on. So his girlfriend Donut had to wear it for a bit:
Look at how humiliated she looks! poor thing!

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 12:22 PM

We had greyhounds when I was a kid. That's a pretty common posture for the breed - clothed or not.

When they do tuck their tails in fear, it's generally much tighter to the abdomen.

The arch in the back is also common for the breed.

Many greyhounds also have that expression all the time. It's very much a "ho-hum, I'm so fast, everything else bores me *yawn*".

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 12:23 PM

Okay see, this is the whole reason why dogs end up biting/killing their owners.


 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 12:56 PM

oh my goodness, how cute!!! i've never seen anything like it before!

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 01:42 PM

this definitely goes in the sad part of "cute or sad"

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 02:15 PM

MLE and deltabob--

thanks for the explanations. i knew that it was a whippet, but i never made the connection between the natural posture of the dog and the breed.

and bob, smashing description of the expression :)

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 02:17 PM

(dog whispering to photographer) CALLLL THE POLICEEEEEEE....

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 02:29 PM

Whats that in the sky?
its bird
its a plane

lol from fate

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 02:36 PM

"Oh, yeah, this is *really* funny. Let's see if you're laughing after a leave a little 'present' in your bed..."

Fish Eye no Miko
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 02:48 PM

Nope, not cute. Sad. Cuteness comes from within, not from the Halloween aisle at PetSmart.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 03:10 PM

You really need to start putting health warnings on these posts. My husband nearly choked from laughing so hard at this.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 03:13 PM

That's just freaky. Cute, but freaky!!! I think it's the little arms dangling that freaks me out.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 03:14 PM

Krypto? Is that you?

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 03:28 PM

Dog is thinking, "I'm warm in my new jacket and my front feet are nice and dry. Why are people pointing and laughing?"

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 03:29 PM

Ugh... That's just animal abuse.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 03:37 PM

It is teh cutes!

But the makers should fix the fake arms - they just look...bleh.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 03:44 PM

Why for the love of God do people insist on humiliating their pets? OOOOH because 'they' think it's sooo cute, nevermind the poor animal's emotions... *sick*

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 03:50 PM

My theory: SuperWhippet was having a grand old time, running around the house, terrorizing the other pets with his floppy, fake, t-rex arms. Then--horror! Mom took him outside and he was mildly embarrassed. Especially because he's the only one in costume.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 04:01 PM

"uh, it's a little breezy back in the 'tocks area"

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 04:25 PM

I, personally, think saying it's animal abuse or that the dog is himiliated is ridiculous. xD We're humiliated /for/ them. It's us we're concerned with, not the dogs. This one doesn't seem too upset, or it would be gnawing at those dangling hands. xD

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 04:31 PM

Pretty dog, riddikulus costume! Can only guess at the sublime goofiness of the dog/person relationship. I reckon if the dog hated it, the dog would have the costume off. In the meantime, it's a funny pic for us to enjoy.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 05:28 PM

Pay no attention to the dog behind the curtain.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 05:45 PM

Awww... Super puppy! >^_^<

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 06:01 PM

I dunno. Just when I think I've seen the wierdest thing... this shows up.

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 06:41 PM

Lol! I think it IS the dangling arms that freaks us humans out!
I don't think sweet doggie is bothered in the least! :)

My Great Dane Calli LOVES to dress up.....if it's a high school sports teeshirt for the kids' graduation she is ecstatic...if it's just a small blanket thrown over her back she walks carefully around the house so it doesn't fall off and she can wear it as long as possible.
She would love a costume, I guarunTEE it!

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 06:53 PM

LOL! I love the "Oh yeah, punk?" expression on his face-- it just makes the whole picture :-D

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 07:34 PM

very cute. and very funny!

 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 03:42 AM

this time, I really did LOL.
