What are any of us, but the sum of our parts?

Here are a few of the many facets of Fudgepants:

There is the old frankenfoot. Yep, you read that right.

Take a gander at the job she did snacking on some stitches from a surgery to remove a small growth from her back leg. Since she found it necessary to suck them down like spaghetti noodles, we were fortunate to pay for the stitches twice. Hence the scarring, and my bitterness over not being able to buy Britney Spears concert tickets that week.

Truffles also has a gorilla belly.

Similar in appearance, scale and smell, it's undeniably gorilla.

Finally, there is the monkey lip.

She hangs that thing out there for all to see if she is excited, engaged in deep thought (about food, no doubt) or if you have asked her about;

a. her gorila belly, or
b. her frankenfoot

This is where the real party starts. In a show of appreciation for these unique characteristics, we have devised a tune that incorporates and pays homage to all three in succession.

Truffles: That's all I can take people. I flat out lose it and start panting, shaking my tail like Monica Lewinsky at the inaugural ball. I'm not wired to sit still after hearing a song about my parts. Must be the bloodlines.

Sola: Must be the cat litter on your breath.

Author: That is another story unto itself. Until we get to that, we will continue to marvel at the joy that is Truffles.

And sing about it.


  1. Ohhh - stitches! My favorite snack! Your photos are really gorgeolicious - mrufff - more is what I'm trying to bark! Thanks for the great blogs! xo Samantha

  2. Who would have thought that so much could be said about a dog's anatomy :-)

    P.S. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. We still would like to rub that gorilla belly. I am glad my mom is not the only one who makes up songs about me. Yours are a bit more clever. Loved it!

    with much stitches,
    a snowshoe paw right back at you! (those stink too)

  4. Mmmm, has someone been sampling kitty rocha. Better than stitches even.

  5. I've just had a quick look down your posts - I'm sure to be back! You have a no-nonsense dog-blog, which is fun to read.

  10. "Similar in appearance, scale and smell, it's undeniably gorilla." One of the funniest sentences I've seen in awhile. You crack me up.

    As always, I am never disappointed. I have seen that "gorilla belly" in person and every word is true! Signed, Truffle's GreGre

  18. Thanks for coming by my bloggy! And Truffles, keep going Upside Down, and ignore the songs and names! Upside Down is the best way to look at the world!

    Brown dog kisses,

  19. Thanks for the inspiration! I loved the Franken-foot. I will be Franken-paw myself soon! Do you think her puppy piles have anything to do with her recent diagnosis? My son was hard to potty train, but I think it was mostly a power struggle. Is she trying to make a point? My 8 year old puked on my couch yesterday. Do you recommend sticking her nose in it? I don't know why that one can't ever make it to the toilet!

  20. hiya, thanks for the visit. what breed is truffles. his nose looks kinda like my gsp's...

  21. Thanks for visiting our blog. We enjoyed our visit with yours today.

  22. Truffles is all chocolate lab. : )

  23. If it was our dog, we'd probably have to put that cone around his neck. He wore that fashion statement after a surgery and he looked so funny and hated it soooooo bad, lol. Does your dog know you call her lips "Monkey lips," lol. Great choices for this theme.

    Have a great weekend!

  24. Truffles is sweet with all her parts. :)


  25. Truffles is a complicated dog, huh?


  26. Truffles and all her unique parts is so sweet! Thanks for visiting my blog. We'll definitely visit you often.


  27. I have yet to try stitches. I must find out what this new delicacy is....
