No wonder my allergies are acting up. They need to send out a poor air quality alert due to all the pups in the air.

Happy Puppieeeeezzzz!!!!!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:10 AM

Please tell me that's not barbwire that the doggie is about to jump on.

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:11 AM


particularly at the It by S. King reference.

Is this a Dog version of The Sound of Music.

Impressive the way the Dog Instrument Landing System radar brings 'em in right over the fence. Must be tricky in that mountainous terrain.

Mike - awesome IT reference!!! I'm EVERYTHING you EVER were afraid of! Wow, Tim Curry might have played the devil in Legend, but he's never been scarier than he was as Pennywise the clown.

That picture's really funny if you picture that they're really being lifted away against their will. That one on the far left looks like it's trying to hold onto the fence as he floats away.

I hope the second jumping pup from the left made it over the fence okay...

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:27 AM

Verily, that is in fact barbed wire that all those dogs are jumping *over*.

Please don't make me end a sentence with a preposition again.

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:28 AM

is it me, or the dogs really have fluffy tail tips??

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:31 AM

Pennywise made me hate clowns! So scary.....zomg the deadlights!

I'm hoping, wishing, talked myself into beileving the pup that is almost on the barbed wire is using the non barbed second line to sprong off of and will actually clear the top. It's what happens. I know it. I feel it. I BELIEVE it!!!! ;)

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:42 AM

No, the second dog from the left looks like he's about to jump ON the fence, not over it. Is it really necessary to play grammar police on a public forum?

I'm assuming all is right in happy puppy land or else this picture would not find its way to Cute Overload.

[One more time, this is NOT a "public forum"... but no, you're right, it's not strictly necessary to be grammatically correct. However, in this age of LOLspeak and texting, more and more I find that I prefer to, y'know, write better. Speaking for myself. - Ed.]

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:42 AM

Ha! Tewtally awesome photo! I don't know the S. King reference but the writing is hilarious even so! Thanks Karen G. and NOMTOM!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:43 AM

The dog on the right with his paws up under him looks like he's about to turn into an F-18 - fire up the afterburners

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:44 AM

Is that barbed wire that one dog is about to scrape his belly on???? What IDIOT decided it would be a good idea to have his/her dogs jump that??!!! I love the floating dogs, but I'm appalled at the use of barbed wire.

boingy boingy boingy!

apparently the less fluff you have on the end of your tail, the less you can jump. the one that is about to fall on the fence doesn't have much fluff at all. fluff = height

"i'm a hound dog!"

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 09:45 AM

omG! love the 2001! ref on the hovertext!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:00 AM

I can't believe a fox hunt was posted on Cute Overload! You should be ashamed!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:07 AM

A fox hunt? I'm sorry, but I don't see a fox. Hunting with dogs is illegal, by the way.

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:10 AM

Nifty photo, nifty storyline.

And: "Refreshingly bouncy!!"

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:12 AM

Oh my dog, I could see the controversh on the boards from a mile away. Focus on the cute! The cute! Why is there always a debbie downer.
Yes we can assume the pup is all right. And yes, we do need to play pretend Grammar Police. :D

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:28 AM

well if there IS no gravity, then obvs. the pup won't come crashing down on the barbed wire. ;)

srsly I hope pup's okay.

so what kind of upgrades are we getting, anyway? Huh?

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:31 AM

You know, this summer in New York, we've had a rash of window washers and construction workers falling off buildings. If anything, gravity works a little too well around here.

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:36 AM

Hon Glad: LOL -- "The Heels are Alive", indeed! You can almost hear Julie Andrews in the background!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:41 AM

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That just brought a giant smile to my face. Someone clearly forgot to pay the gravity bill.

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:49 AM

IT! That line is from IT! I've been trying to get it to come to me for a hour now! IT!!! Tim Curry is my hero!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:49 AM

I was young when IT came out, but my mean 6th grade friends suggested we watch it anyway. I was TERROR-fied!!! That was Tim Curry???? No wonder I was scared, he's a fantastical actor. But I am still scared of clowns. {shiver}

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 10:52 AM

Don't worry! Plenty of former fox hunters do the drag-the-smelly-thing style ethical hunt, thus allowing the horses a good run + the dogs their fun, minus the carnage of the old days.

And my I just say:
Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!
Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 11:04 AM

um, barbwire = badness :(

[Tell me about it... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115624/ - Ed.]

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 11:11 AM

Not sure one of the doggies gonna clear the barbed wire? Not to worry: one nanosecond after this photo was taken, floopsie earses converted into hovercraft mode, efficiently carrying her up and over the fence. Phew!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 11:19 AM

Z O M B!
This is most perfectional laffagorical gaspinducinal
picture and capshun I haf seen.
System upgrades indeed.
Kudos Mr. NTMTOM Kudos!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 11:21 AM

It could be worst.. at least its not razor wire.. and also, where in that picture is there a fox???? Is it impossible to believe that these dogs are just running around in a field??

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 11:42 AM

i'm really glad i'm the only one who became concernicus when i saw that the pup 2nd from the left doesn't look like he quite made it. really really REALLY hope that guys okay!!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 11:43 AM

Starling: Hunting with dogs is not illegal. People do it all the time with bird dogs, such as the German Shorthair dog in the picture (highest jumper).

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 11:44 AM

Release the hounds!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 11:49 AM


I wanna see the dogs turning somersaults in mid-air like you see the astronauts do!

Watch out for the monolith, puppers!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 12:13 PM

FLYING Walker Coonhounds?
(yes, I know they aren't that type of hound but I couldn't resist!)
And for the nuffers - the dog in danger clearly has his hind legs about to reach the second wire - and sporing hin clear of the fence! I have seen my beagle boy do this so I know it is possible!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 12:15 PM

the warning is very Douglas Adams.

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 12:16 PM

Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war. Sorry, couldn't resist.

Beep, beep, Richie! And stop calling me Eddie Spaghetti! You know I hate that.

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 12:24 PM

Ah but hunting MAMMALS with dogs is illegal, Pussytoes.

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 12:26 PM


It seems all kinds of dogs are affected...

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 12:30 PM

wow. those guys are getting serious air.

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 12:39 PM

The wonderful thing about Puppehs
Is Puppehs are wonderful things.
Their tops are made of rubbers
The bottoms are made of springs.
Fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!!!

The wonderful thing about Puppehs
Is I'm the only one

I'm the only one !


 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 12:41 PM

Oh man, I love that funny flying dog video! And what a cutie!

 |  Sep 05, 2008 at 12:50 PM

This looks like a pack of hounds on a foxhunt. It is NOT illegal in all states, most states have a certain time of year, and this sport is very popular in england as well, so it may not even BE in this country. I have followed hounds on horseback before while I was in London, and saw the dogs clear fences much worse than this without a problem. They are very strong, well muscled dogs, so they won't have a problem. You can hunt mammals with dogs in the US, but only during the time of year that it's OK to hunt that specific animal. (Hunting is REALLY big where I live, which is how I know all this) Hope this clears up some confusion. Foxhounds are great dogs, so cute, but sooo LOUD!
