this is my math:

books with pictures of puppies = 5 stars
books making fun of hipsters = 5 stars

animals in clothes = negative a million stars.

god i hate animals in clothes, i really do. and like Stuff on My Mutt, a lot of this is just dogs wearing glasses or sunglasses.occasionally a scarf. so original.

however - two doggies reading Infinite Jest is more than okay with me.

and while it is true that many of the captions are not funny, you gotta admit "rocko has the most enviable collection of unread chuck klosterman books on the whole dorm floor" is worth a chuckle.

and while this caption is not funny, this dog is the cutest damn thing ever:

this white person likes hipster puppies...
so it gets three stars, mostly because puppies are cute.
although the thought of hipsters putting their expensive sunglasses on their expensive dogs while lounging around in their trust-fund apartments, thinking up new haircuts, diminishes my enjoyment.

Kwesi 章英狮 I agree, animals in clothes looked like a dressed rock! They are so annoying especially when they are trying to trend mix breed dogs. Boooo. Chowaua?!

karen oh, but it's okay when tommy wears his birthday hat. i just want to make that clear...

message 8: by Tracyene (new)

Tracyene The look on his face..."What have I ever done to you?"

karen i just want to topple him over and stick my face in his tummy...

karen i thought that would be enough to lure tommy over here... she is hoarding those photos...

karen yayyyy!! she knows how to share after all!!

Cynthia This makes me want to buy some accessories for my dog Carl. He is already handsome enough, though.

karen what breed?

message 14: by Cynthia (new)

Cynthia Part Border Collie, part Lassie-type Collie, maybe some Aussie, mostly Mutt. Black and white--looks good in red if you have some extra party hats in a fetching design.

karen i have dog envy. i would love to be able to have a dog. i saw the grouchiest boxer today and my heart flipped.

message 16: by Cynthia (new)

Cynthia I feel sorry for Boxers, Pugs, Bulldogs, etc. in this heat. Our local animal shelter picked up a female boxer the other day who weighs just under 30 pounds. Someone dumped her, poor thing.

karen oh, i hate that person.
