Create a Caption: Puppy Eyes

Posted by at 1:32 am in Create a Caption, Writing Prompt | Permalink

CreateacaptionThe most innocent-looking people are usually the biggest troublemakers, and I think the same rule applies to puppies. This photo brings a whole new meaning to the expression “puppy eyes.” How can you resist a face like that? I sure couldn’t.

What caption would you give this photo? Mine would look something like this:

“Hey, dad. I know I accidentally drove your new car into the swimming pool, and I’m really sorry about that . . . but I was hoping I could have $20 to get this new T-shirt I saw at the mall today?”

Goosebumps Create a Caption

20logoGoosebumps Create a Caption

He’s the evil puppet everyone loves to hate! Slappy has been scaring readers since the release of Goosebumps: Night of the Living Dummy in 1993. With his painted-on grin and beat up bow-tie, Slappy looks like an ordinary ventriloquist dummy. But looks can be very deceiving. This trouble-making block of wood is anything but dumb! He’s a walking, talking, trash-talking terror!

CreateacaptionCreate a Caption: Liddia the Boxer Puppy

Look at how cool this Boxer puppy named Liddia is. She looks way too cool for school, just chillin’ at the park, letting it all hang out.

LiddiaShe looks like a trend-setting pooch to me. If I had to come up with a caption for this, I think Liddia would say:

“Blue leashes? Blah! So last year. It’s all about the purple now.”

Guinness World Records 2013 Create a Caption

Guinness2013Guinness World Records 2013 Create a Caption

It’s Guinness World Records time again — that crazy time of year when we post a Create a Caption for the new Guinness World Records book. 3 years ago, we had the photo of the guy who holds the record for wearing the most T-shirts at once. 2 years ago, it was the kid who holds the world record for balancing the most spoons on his face. Last year, it was dogs skipping rope.

Let’s continue the dog theme with this photo from the brand new Guinness World Records 2013 of the world’s tallest dog. Prepare to be amazed. . .

Create a Caption: Saint Bernard Dogs

CreateacaptionCreate a Caption: Saint Bernard Dogs

Recently, Scholastic asked some grown-ups to send in photos of their dogs for a special Dog of the Week contest. The sillier or cuter, the better! We loved them so much we thought it would be fun to feature these award-winning dogs in an Ink Splot 26 post dedicated to doggie awesomeness.

Take, for example, this picture of the Chatham Pack:

Now, that is one COOL dog. If I had to give this photo a caption, it would definitely be this:

“No one on the corner has swagga like us.”

What do you guys think? What caption would you give this picture?  Give us your captions in the Comments!

Also, out of curiosity: which pups are cuter?
