Any ever see the Dirty Jobs episode where they sex chicks and have to squeeze the poop out of 'em? I wonder if the bird pooed itself.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:28 AM

EGADS! I'm a little harmed by that one. Hope the lil feller is okay.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:28 AM

poor little chickie, he looks so confused!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:29 AM

that little dewd is quite literally picking up a chick!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:29 AM

Ummm... uhhhh...

And then they lived happily ever after.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:29 AM

In which Pom the pup becomes confused by the difference between a live chick and a chew toy...

I predict Commentroversy. Imminently.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:30 AM

LOL Adam..

And yes.. I agree with the commentroversy prediction. ugh and *sigh*

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:32 AM

Eek! Hah, yeah. Is chicky okay? Ahh, how correct you are, thinker... let the commentraversy commence.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:32 AM

I wouldn't panic just yet. The chick doesn't look squished in the second picture, just held. I doubt the Pom is being any rougher with the chick then it would be with a newborn puppy.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:33 AM

Well, there are some breeds of dog (like retreivers) who have, by nature, a very "soft" grip, aren't there? So that, when they went hunting in the marshes for ducks with their master, they would not harm the druck, right? (Or is it revisionist-historian grey matter?) Perhaps this Pom is one of them... ?

Yeah, I think this falls under "cute or sad" - and I'm a little worried for the chickie.
But Meg would never post a picture of something being hurt because that's just not cute.
So I'll stop worrying and contributing to the commentroversy and go back to my spreadsheets .

As disturbing as the fact that the dog has the chick in its mouth is that the dog's owner left the chick there at least long enough to take the photo. I usually love what I see on this site, but what's happening in the second photo isn't amusing.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:40 AM

You're probably right about it just holding the chicky, Joe. Dogs do pick up their newborns with their mouths, after all. :)

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:43 AM

Were any chicks harmed in the making of this photo?

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:44 AM

I agree with critterlover. The second photo is DEFINITELY NOT AMUSING.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:44 AM

The chick does look a little squashed, but I think if it were in pain it would look more distressed-- it just looks like "Put me down!"

I hope.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:46 AM

Also, the duck has a look on its face like "I cannot BELIEVE we're posing like this."

Doesn't this just bring up the whole "captured moment" idea? We don't know what happened before, we don't know what happens next. We can make up stories either happy or sad, according to our desire. The story we make up probably tells us more about ourselves than about the reality of the situation.

Oops, I meant chick, I swear...haven't been off the farm THAT long.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:48 AM

I think Maureen's right. I am choosing to believe this is a soft kronsche moment.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:50 AM

where's the disclaimer "no chicks were harmed in the making of this...photo?" i'm a little distressed...

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:50 AM


Whether or not the dog actually *bites* the chickie, mammals have bacteria in their mouths which is harmful to birds! This is why, say, letting your pet parrot eat out of your mouth is Not Recommended.

*thinks good thoughts for chickie*

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:50 AM

the "red" is his feet. it's cute.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:51 AM

i'm so done with this site. you don't care what you put up here.

cute overload needs to take the "cute" out of the name.

that is absolutely a revolting picture. if you are not disgusted by that pic, then you're a poor excuse for an animal lover.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:51 AM

Oh...oh...tell me when it's over [Sam the Snowman shudder. With umbrella].

That is just aweful, thats not cute, its disturbing. I am appauled. That definately changed my idea of this site.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:53 AM

Call me a simple-minded pollyana, if you dare, but I believe that little Pommy thinks chicky is her baby.

Farewell, W.T.F.? We knew ye not at all. Oh, and LilyRose, back to the drawing board on your spelling, dearie.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:58 AM

Wait! I thought 'chicks rule'? Quick - bring those socks n' birkenstocks to the rescue!

And I thought it was Chick Rules in this house anyway.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:58 AM

Best. Scrolldown. EVAH.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:58 AM

Pom: "Hey man, you're lucky my chick's here."

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:02 PM

I think this is too darn cute. Frankly, I'm not worried about the chick at all. For one, they are pretty squishy lil dudes. For another, I seriously SERIOUSLY doubt someone would keep pictures of their pet eating another pet around for the purposes of aaaawing over them. In addition, if the chicken were in pain, I'd expect his wee wingys to be flapping and his wee beaky to be squawking, neither of which is visibile in that pic. The logical conclusion is that this is a cute, perfectly harmless pic. In fact, from the apparent calmness of the chicky, I'd not even be surprised if this had happened before.

Take a deep breath and then exhale aaaaaaaaaaaaaw.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:03 PM

I doubt the pictures would have been posted on the Internet if something bad happened to the little chicklette.

A little cringe-worthy, but nothing so bad as to stop coming to this site. Geez people, chill out.

We really need a picture-update section. >_<

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:04 PM

Did anyone else hear a slight "squeak" upon the viewing of the second photo? Hee hee

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:05 PM

I ate a chicken yesterday. It was darn good. No photos were taken of the event.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:06 PM

Oh, and if the dog wanted the chickie as a munchie, I am sure s/he would have gobbled the thing up in a second. I see no harm here.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:06 PM

OMG, exactly.

ROFL... that was definitely NOT expected.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:07 PM

The dog isn't biting down, it just looks that way because the chick is all fluff. Its treating the chick like a puppy.

My dog once stole a chicken while visiting a friends house, and ran all around the yard with it before they caught her. The chicken was probably a little scrambled, but it ran off without a scratch. This pic may be a chick rather than a full grown chicken, but its a very small dog being very gentle.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:07 PM

What is the matter with you people? This chick is clearly not being hurt. Think about it this way: how do you think that photographer knew that this event was going to happen? Do you think that a chick just randomly appeared next to this dog? No. I contend that the photographer knew exactly what was going to happen because it had happened before. Therefore (and follow along closely people), the photographer KNEW that the chick would BE JUST FINE. Good heavens. Some of you people need to chill the f*ck out. Stop pooping on the parade.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:08 PM

I own a pomeranian and he has the softest mouth of any dog I've ever owned. The chick is fine. If you don't know what a soft mouth is read the Big Red series.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:10 PM

Oh... my gosh. This made me cry. Is the chickie okay?

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:13 PM

James, the photos are a little contraversial, yeah, but have hardly been "scraped from the bottom of the e-mail basket". Meg's a smart webmistress... you don't think she knows that she'll get probably more than three hundred comments on this single post? :P

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:15 PM

I agree with the soft mouth theory. "Look! It's my bebeh!"

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:16 PM

. . . you people just *thrive* on wank, don'tcha?

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:16 PM

This is so wrong and I should be ashamed for saying it, but I sometimes think I liked this site better before everyone and his nuffingham brother discovered it. I liked the cute pix and the clever people who commentated. The cute pix and clever peeps are still here, but now they are being overrun by the ignorant masses. (web equivalent of urban sprawl?)

[runs to hide from verbal assault that is surely coming]
[hopes that maybe pudding will follow?]

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:20 PM

Still,it is a bit disturbing. Kind of hard to see the cute in it. Sorry....

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 12:20 PM

second photo NOT cute...very distressing...
