Pitch a Few of Those Down Here!

“And Sandsberg swings for strike three, and that is the end of the inning. And so, as the players change sides for the seventh inning, let’s take a break and cut to the ‘Hungry Dog Coveting Other People’s Garlic Fries Cam,’ sponsored by the makers of Food, reminding you: Food, it’s what’s for dinner.”

I see you have garlic fries. I, too, enjoy garlic fries.

    Bulletin! The Cuteoverload site is gone! When I clicked on the site in my bookmarks I got something which says the domain name may be for sale. Gaaah!

        Do you know what happens to the archives? I’m crushed. I was going there most days just to encourage them to keep it online.

    • JenDeyan September 29, 2016 / 9:52 am

      Oh no. I thought at least the archives would stick around. *sadness*

        • Dubravkamcvmd September 29, 2016 / 10:09 am

          Thank you. I’m not ready to let go.

          • Puddleglum September 29, 2016 / 10:17 am

            Me neither. Now I’ll just have to go print out all my favorite posts and comment threads. The “Is That All Their Is” snow leopard, the marriage proposal cat, pretty much anything posted by Theo, the “Hewwo” hedgehog….Sigh.

            • Dubravkamcvmd September 29, 2016 / 10:27 am

              Good idea.

            • Smartypants September 29, 2016 / 11:23 am

              Maybe you could save them onto your hard drive or a flash drive? (I don’t know if that’s technically feasible).

          I’m going to bookmark the Wayback Machine link when I get home tonight!!

        • sumomermaid September 29, 2016 / 3:44 pm

          I actually kinda like the ability of wayback machine to look at old posts. When CO closed down, I tried to start from the beginning to look at all I missed, but there was no way to pick up where I left off each time (I couldn’t enter a “go to page #”) and it got old real fast to back arrow through tens to hundreds of pages.

          • dubravkamcvmd September 29, 2016 / 3:53 pm

            My experience exactly. While the Wayback Machine isn’t complete it will be easier to use.

    That reminds me of my nephew. When he was little he would beg me for food just because he saw me eating something.

    “What’s that?”
    “I like sushi.”
    “You’re 4. You’ve never had sushi before.”

      I’m put in mind of (can’t come up with his name, the Russian stand-up comic) talking about game shows in Russia one of them being “Bowling for Food”. Love this post. Heck, I love them all.

        • jlamusings September 29, 2016 / 2:12 pm

          In Russia, french fries eat YOU!

          • Murray C. September 29, 2016 / 3:27 pm

            Yes, that’s whose name I was trying to think of. Loved him – what’s he doing now, anybody know?

            • allein 🐾 September 29, 2016 / 3:33 pm

              Don’t know what he’s doing these days but according to wikipedia he is also a painter and has a master’s degree in positive psychology. Who knew?

              • Murray C. September 29, 2016 / 4:14 pm

                Very cool! I had no idea there was a field “positive psychology”.

                • allein 🐾 September 29, 2016 / 4:23 pm

                  “Positive psychology is the branch of psychology that uses scientific understanding and effective intervention to aid in the achievement of a satisfactory life,[1][2][3] rather than treating mental illness. The focus of positive psychology is on personal growth rather than on pathology, as is common among other frameworks within the field of psychology.”

                    Allein, you are a treasure trove.

                    • allein 🐾 September 29, 2016 / 5:52 pm

                      just a copy/paste from wikipedia…

                    • Murray C. September 29, 2016 / 7:50 pm

                      Maybe so, but you went there! I always forget I can do that. I’m getting better at realizing that the Internet is knowledge at your fingertips but I’m not quite there yet.

    Sea food Diet … See Food .. Eat Food ..
    Sounds like my beagle

  5. Jennifer Bullis September 29, 2016 / 11:11 am

    Safeco Field! Go, Mariners!

    Never been there on Take Your Pup to the Ballgame Day, tho.

  6. Smartypants September 29, 2016 / 11:26 am

    Puppeh needs to borrow the Mission Impossible climbing rig from those fry-mooching dachshunds! πŸ˜€

    So the game is not the thing for doggies.

    • Murray C. September 29, 2016 / 3:29 pm

      I’m afraid that’d be me at a game – not so much for food but lack of interest. Not a big sports fan.

  8. Margaret September 29, 2016 / 4:41 pm

    What a marketing idea! A free pup with every order of garlic fries! Safeco Field here I come! Go Mariners!!

  9. Laura September 29, 2016 / 4:44 pm

    Many years ago I saw a cartoon in which one dog is looking at food bowls and excitedly saying to another dog, “Oh, boy! Dog food AGAIN!” which, honestly, sums up every dog I’ve ever known. But I’ve also never met a dog that didn’t think human food was far, far superior — which is why we make sure our guys only get very tiny tastes of human food at the bottom of their bowls to encourage them to eat their way down to the prize that awaits their explorations. πŸ˜€

    We need to find out when Take your Dog Day is at our local team’s stadium. I have a feeling our guys would love the attention and fuss!

    • Faye September 29, 2016 / 7:42 pm

      And the food. Or at least all the food smells.

  10. NathanF September 29, 2016 / 8:35 pm

    Cute pup, although garlic isn’t really all that good for dogs. I hope no one falls for that adorable goofy smile..
