Lily is all of us. Also we’re the person yelling at Lily. Also we might be the mud. Hard to say at this point.

I can’t stop watching this and every time I end up laughing until I cry as Hailey and I scream “LILY!” at each other and I think you need to watch it too:

And on an entirely different subject, it’s time for the Sunday wrap-up!

The-Oh-My-God-I-Love-October Edition


Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):


This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by ORIGINAL SYN.  Afraid the world might be ending? Ever wonder what it might be like to live forever?

And yes, there are pretty people doing dangerous things. Seriously, y’all. Get addicted to this epic read before it’s your next Netflix bingeGet. It. Now.

  1. Lily is living her best life.

  2. Oh my gosh. I am laughing out loud for real. It’s nice to have a little levity. and I’d love to be Lily splashing around in the mud. Bathing her could be fun too if I’m prepared to scrub the bathroom.

  3.         Jenny, I am a digital subscriber of NYT! I’m trying to search for your article but I am not finding it! 😭😭😭 please let me know how we can read it. I need some light today after last night’s darkness. 💕       

    (Here you go! ~ Jenny)

  4.         Almost as good as Fenton!  Almost. 

    (Crying laughing again. ~ Jenny)

    It’s like “Lilly” by Pink Martini, with mud.

  6. My husband and I yell “Trevor” at each other because of this: (NSFW, language)

  7. Lily is just having fun, I know I’d definitely be rolling around in mud as much as possible if I was a dog! (Also, I’m sorry to be the downer here, but all that yelling is not really the best way to speak to a dog. I know my dog would freak out if I yelled at him that way. I understand being upset/frustrated/whatever about that beautiful white fur getting all dirty, but try to be upset/etc in a way that won’t scare the crap out of the dog.)

  8. My dogs were upset at the yelling and one is hiding behind me now. They don’t understand why Lily can’t be muddy.

  9. The Rory tights. Jesus Christ on a cranberry bagel, I must have these. And I must fight my preference for modest clothing, i.e. long tunics or dresses, that I usually wear with tights, so as to best display their radiant majesty. No one will be looking at my ass, that’s for sure! LOVE!

    Lille recently posted juicy brutus the transgender spider and the broom of doom.

  10. Lily looks like the epitome of pure joy.

    (I do kinda get the owner’s frustration. I’m finding that teaching middle school is like corralling Lily — except I have 185 Lilys in groups of 37. Some days I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.)

  11. We live near a pond, but it’s fenced, so normally it’s not a problem… but in the spring it escapes the fence and we’d get a giant muddy mess that my old springer spaniel couldn’t resist. The became such a common occurrence, named the pond “Rusty’s Spa in his honor. It’s maddening, but at the same time, it’s hard to be mad them when they’re having so much fun.

  12. As the owner of a fluffy little white dog I totally feel his pain 😀 I also laughed hard because my dog avoids any and all puddles, yay!

    Eline @Lovely Audiobooks recently posted Mini reviews: Until the Consequence of Me.

  13. I am without a doubt the one rolling in the mud. No regrets.

  14. Off topic and BTW. I took the design on leggings – which I would not be caught even dead in – and put it on a t-shirt. Zazzle let me do this. It’s gonna be cool. Love ya! And Rory <3

  15. It looks like she’s playing where the septic system went bad in our yard…

  16. Holy shit, I’ve read Passing for Human!! I work at a bookstore and get ARCs of books, and that one looked amazing and it was and that’s a really good review for it. Y’all need to read it!

  17. If only I had that kind of energy. The Viking wouldn’t be able to keep up with his “For fucks sake, Lori!!s”

    Mrs. Completely recently posted Thunder Thighs and Sabre-Tooth Gophers.

  18. Pure joy. And for those of us with herding dogs and little fluffy white things, painfully familiar.
    So proud of you, Jenny! Certain your journalism professor would be too. You should look them up.

    Picture 3 Lillys, only make them each 50-65 pound Retrievers. That’s what I live with.

  20. My 3-month old is completely confused by what is happening (admittedly he was drinking his milk, but the look on his face when lily is being called…. Badmommy!)

  21. I’m with Lily and Fenton. Dogs be dogs.

  22. So much mud, so much fun. That is so funny.

    Lily knows how to dog. The guy needs to learn to chill.

  24. Lily’s frolicking filled me with joy, but Lily’s owner’s screaming gave me AND my dogs an anxiety attack. :-O Chill WAY the fuck out, man!

  25. Love the Lily video! I have a small white fluffy dog and I would be simultaneously laughing and trying to get him to come out, but mostly laughing.
    I really do not like the second video posted (Jesus Christ in Richmond Park)…and I know you did not post it, Jenny. But that man was harassing the deer, and he scared them into running across a road where they could have been hit by a car. Not funny.

  26. Umm, Jenny – small favor to ask? I’m running out of Halloween movies to watch (much needed at this particular time in our country’s history, desperately need distractions from our new dystopian reality), so can you please update your Halloween movie list?

    Thank you!

  27. Love it – and all the other videos people have shared. Fenton made me cry laughing.

  28. I don’t understand why anyone is laughing at the.Lily video. NO ONE should scream at a dog like that. 😞

  29. An NYT byline! Cooler than cool:). I’m sure Lily would be sending a congratulatory note, but I think she’s been grounded for the next decade . . .

    candidkay recently posted There you will be.

  30. Is there Rory fabric by the yard? I want to make a dress.

  31. I feel uncool because I didn’t find the Lily video funny. I love Lily’s joie de vivre but I don’t like the owner’s yelling. It reminds me of my father.

    Library Heather recently posted In which I discuss pancakes and librarianship..

  32. TOBY!!! Don’t you dare!

  33. Congratulations on the byline!

  34. The deer chasing dog would not have been quite as tear inducing, can’t catch my breath funny if he had named his dog literally any other name but Fenton. Dying!
    Lilly’s owner has a little bit of anger issues.
    BTW I read that if your dog gets loose, don’t chase it because it will only make them run faster. Instead, “fall” to the ground and lay quietly and they will get curious or worried and come y to you.
    One of mine slipped from his collar and was off after a squirrel and I’m oldish with a bad hip and so I flopped to the ground and it worked thank goodness because he was headed towards the street.

  35. I peed myself.

  36. After a long, painful day at work, it was nice to come home and laugh at dogs being dogs. Thanks, Jenny, you always find the best stuff.

    She is in pure joyful ecstasy! Or maybe ON ecstasy…..your pain is our gain. Thanks for sharing. btw how long did the bath take?

  38. FENTON!!!! 😂 I have to say that is pretty impressive herding. I’ve seen border collies herd cats, cows, sheep, and once three very confused toddlers. But an entire park full of deer is new to me!

  39. Too freaking funny! When her fluffy white face lifts up covered in mud, I almost blacked out from laughing. Dogs. And babies. 100% hand washable.

  40. I think I would have just set my phone down and grabbed the dog, but I’m reminded of this guy who didn’t have a chance trying to catch Fenton:

    doublerhomestead recently posted First Friday Farm Photos.

  41. I love the way she just stares at him yelling at her and then puts her face in. I think Lily was a cat in a previous life. As in this video:

    mydangblog recently posted My Week 211: Classics with a Twist.

  42. “FENTON! Oh, Jesus Christ!” Fenton wins for creating total chaos although Lily clearly knows what she wants in life.

  43. Was having a real bummer of a day and that clip was what I needed. Laughed myself to tears. Lily!!!

  44. Tears!!!! From laughing!!!! How did you know I needed this right now?

  45. @enola- to put your mind at ease Richmond Park is a walled wildlife preserve, the deer always have right-of-way on the very few automobile roads and the speed limit is 20 mph so they were OK on that front.

    Also, it was the dog, Fenton, chasing the deer, not the man. The man was chasing Fenton. 🙂

  46. The audio of yelling at Lily sounds like the crazy bastard from “Silence of the Lambs”. It puts the lotion in the basket!!!

  47. i AM DEFINITELY THE MUD 🙂 Come over 🙂

  48. My friend says, “Oh Carol,” whenever I do or say something crazy or out there. Which is often. Another used to say, “CAAAROL.” Apparently I am a Lily.

    Carol Lennox recently posted My Love Affair With Santa Fe.

  49. Oh gods.. I thought this was just mud at first glance, but that reealllly looks like a yard having septic system issues.. :shudders:

  50. One of the books my child loved in grade school… “Mud Puddle Poodle.”

    (The whole series is great…in each one, a kid gets a dog and has to figure out a problem. The whole idea being that dogs are individuals and the people sometimes have to adjust their expectations to get the most out of the relationship.)

  51. OMG, she is an actual child, lol. I love it, because when you want them to listen they don’t, and when you don’t! I don’t have dog problems because I have a cat, a cat with attitude. But then again what cat doesn’t have attitude right? I think my cat is the feline version of Deadpool, yep that’s him Cat Deadpool. Thanks again Jenny for sharing the mishaps and comedic adventures it always makes me laugh!

  52. It’s just a tiny white dog — so easy to clean! He should console himself that he is not in my shoes, facing this clean-up job every day during the rainy season:

  53. After Deep sleep, morning with a smile with that dog,

  56. This and the commented links made me smile and laugh on a very unsmilable day 🙂 thanks all

  57. Lily knows how to dog. The guy needs to learn to chill.’

  58. That voice… the fluffy little white dog. That might just be Buffalo Bill.

  59. OMG, no matter how many times I watch this I laugh until I cry! I think Lily had just been to the groomers, and Lily likes being a dirty, dirty girl. LOL
