Oh, let the nuffing begin! Meanwhile I think I'll try to stop laughing... in a while.

Get that precious baby away from that beast right now! Do you know how filthy those things are?

Those puppehs need protecting!

ACK! NO TASTY THE PUPPIES!

Blondie

BTW that wasn't a nuff, that was a joke. Babies are cute, too, and that baby is not a beast.

OK. am I protected from nuff nuffers, now? ;-)

That puppy is going to grow up and eat that baby. And this picture will be proof that he's not at fault :)

Nuff-fest in 3,2,1...

I hope for the pups sake that kid's not teething!

@Legotech--Maybe they grew up and became this pair:

This is not funny; it's disturbing.

jinx!

Jennifer

Uhmm? Who will end up with the personality complex? The baby who didn't know any better and must eat puppy faces or the puppy who will forever need to be inside someone's mouth!

Put the camera down & rescue poor wee pup morsel!

You should try the dachshunds. They taste just like chicken. Schnauzers always give me indigestion.

 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:03 AM

eh, I have to say... that actually looks kinda bad. I am sure the puppy is fine now, but it doesn't look good...

 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:06 AM

is this what it has come to... babies huffing pups? ha!

i now return you to the nuff-a-ganza, already in progress

 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:07 AM

Not amusing at all. I'm surprised you would put this photo up on this site, frankly.

Janna D.
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:08 AM

LogoTech, Leah & Teri - I totally agree with you. That picture is not cute, and that puppy could get hurt. While I am female, I do NOT think babies are cute - unless they have fur and tails. The furless ones just grow up to hate you anyway.

Man, am I bitter or what?! Either way, SAVE THAT PUPPY!

We need a 300 cc bolus of pudding here STAT!

gross.

Not cute...not funny either.

angelcatbeds
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:13 AM

OMG. MORE PUDDING. I REPEAT, MORE PUDDING.

Hey wait. How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your puppy meat?

(the original) Mel
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:14 AM

I'd be interested in a discussion about the line between cute and disturbing, as some other posts have evoked this reaction in me. It sounds like a continuum of sensitivity. So how can Meg discern what will be cute and what will—pardon me—leave a bad taste in the mouth?

Baby is obviously a practising cuteoligist "Must put it in my mouf"

Hon Glad
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:20 AM

People, PEOPLE! How often have we expressed the desire to nom on certain puppy ears... this child is simply living the dream.

*looks again*

Yup, living the dream.

(Even though a part of me is kinda put off by it. Buuut as long as the kid was being gentle and under supervision I'm sure the puppehs were OK.)

here come the hardcore childfree machines, beware little one snorf the puppy while you still can!

lexydot
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:20 AM

poor puppy....that doesn't look comfortable nor safe for the animal. this isn't cute at all.

kochou
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:22 AM

Animal Lover - as with most things it's common sense. Babies squeeze everything they pick up. Squeezing a helpless puppy seems pretty clear cut to me!

gracekitty
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:22 AM

Nibbling on puppy and kitten ears when you are old enough to understand that you are dealing with a living, breathing creature is cute. A 1 year old baby that has no idea? Recipe for disaster.

Gracekitty, sorry about your little kitten...

BeckyMonster
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:26 AM

here come the hardcore childfree machines...>>

lexydot: REALLY?? you're really going to go there? people who don't have kids are inappropriate because they find this image disturbing? really?? sounds like you're the one who's "hardcore" in this case...

Amy
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:26 AM

oh boy, here we go again!

[You took the dogs -- er, words right out of my mouth... - Ed.]

I personally think this is photoshopped, like the other hugely commentroversial baby-kronsching-kitten's-tail picture.

I also personally think it's cute, and not disturbing at all. But then I have a 2 year old and have witnessed him innocently nibbling on our cat's ears.... the cat survived.

Bookworm
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:27 AM

lol what I mean is whenever a picture including a kid is posted whether it has anything to do with this being cruel or whatever those people tend to kick up a fuss like cuteoverload = animals only.

btw I don't have kids either nor do I really want them but people who 100% hate children frighten me.

lexydot
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:29 AM

um, why is this ok or cute, that puppy is probably being hurt being held by its neck. I do not come here to look at babies anyway they are gross. Well Human babies. Puppies and kitties are ok.

bekkie
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:29 AM

And yeah, I said it, I don't like babies. Never really have. I have always identified with animals more than people. Sue me.

BeckyMonster

anyway I'm going to zip my mouth before I say anything else and people go even more monkeypoop! :x

lexydot
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:32 AM

with leah and teri.

the write up is funny, but the head holding, head biting, feet dangling ... :(

joss
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:34 AM

Stop trying to make this cute. There's a difference between an owner holding their dog/cat and playfully biting their ear and this.

She's holding up that puppy by the skin on it's face--full body weight pulling on it--and it looks like she's really digging in with her fingers, too.

She's a baby and doesn't know better but her parents sure should.

Helena
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:35 AM

I don't like babies. I think they are pooping snot-covered whining machines who disrupt dinner in restaurants. Nevertheless...

*takes baby some Paula Deen BBQ sauce*

Not cute!!! Not funny!!!
very disturbing....I worry for the state of the puppy!!!

Diane Fulham

Please don't eat the daisies. Or the puppies. I hope the puppy's name is Daisy.

Lurker

Babies sorta suck sometimes.

tracyFlick
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:45 AM

baby = cute
puppy = cute
nomming = cute

What's the problem again?

Cricket
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:46 AM

Please tell me no puppies were injured! Looks like baby is squeezing puppy's head pretty hard!

Ouch.

Wendy
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:46 AM

*Hands Mel two gallons of pudding*

I like babies, when they belong to someone else, so I can play with them until they get all fussy then give them back.

This is cute, as are most interactions between baby humans and baby animals. Also, I firmly believe that if the puppy was in any real danger the photographer would have rescued it instead of taking the pictures.

And since no one else said it yet...this is Meg's blog and she can put up whatever she wants! If you don't like it click over to something else!

Noelle
 |  Sep 24, 2008 at 09:48 AM

im not someone who says babies shouldn't be on the site cause sometimes they can be cute, but it irks me when people pick up a camera rather than help the puppy. it doesnt look very safe and babies dont know their own strength.

Mel - may I offer you my speciality. Homemade chocolate tapioca made with Mexican cooking chocolate and a touch of cinnamon?

(oh and here's a big vat of instant vanilla for throwing)

*sits down to relax and watch the nuff fest*

metsakins

The picture made me laugh but it's terrible. My sister accidentally killed a puppy when she was little. That puppy is a tiny baby that doesn't stand a chance. Just imagine hanging a human baby by the neck and chewing on its face. Please bring back the picture of dogs covered with dog biscuits.
