Dog Wants Cupcakes, Darth Vader Has a Bun in the Oven

Anyone who's had a dog of the high strung border collie/aussie type can surely appreciate this video:

Visual description: Australian shepherd, commanded to stay away from a platter of yummy cupcakes with sprinkles, stands unmoving, staring, and unblinking, looking both wistful and tortured at the goodies. He's good and neither touches the cupcakes nor the delightful sprinkles. Nor does he blink. Nor move, or apparently breathe enough to expand his ribs, except the nostrils show some slight sign of respiration, proving dog has not been transmogrified into a statue.

My dog likes chicken this much, even more than pulling my husband or kids for a walk like he's training for the Iditarod.

Cupcake doggy discovered at Cake Wrecks. Cake Wrecks has cakes both wondrous and disastrous. Find of the week:

Visual description: picture of cake with Darth Vader holding a small baby. The words "It's a Girl!" appear among pastel planets and swirls. And sprinkles (don't tell the doggy). The cake is artistically done, unlike some Cake Wrecks. It's just, well, odd.

Cake Wrecks is a sickly brilliant pop culture site and damn you for introducing it to me! So disturbing. So easy to spend a lot of time there. That poor dog!

Ah ha, it is a great site! I know, I felt really badly for the the dog myself. Has a dog ever looked quite so torn between longing and obedience?
