BOO WATCH: SIBLING RIVALRY?

We've long suspected that Boo, Showbiz pet Mogul and Puggle Extordanaire, has somewhat of an 'upper paw' when it comes to the old Gyllenhaal family dynamic, but new pictures of 'Mother's Day Beach Stroll and Casual Low Altitude Rock Climbing' have surfaced which throws into disarray everything we once thought we knew.

1. In this first picture you will notice how Boo appears to be fussing about something. The Gyllenhaals look on alarmed and confused, apart from Atticus, who couldn't give a crap. What's Boo upset about? I can only presume it's because he is a, having to walk and b, having to walk alongside someone who isn't Jake. Don't judge dear Boo, you know you'd be exactly the same.

2. It appears firm words have now been had and the puggle has been silenced. Boo's rightful postion continues to be ursurped by the Alsation. He resorts to giving Atticus "the evils". Atticus, yet again, could not give a crap.

3.Boo's childish antics are heavily reprimanded as he is made to walk in a regimented fashion BEHIND Jake and Atticus. Is there a finer indignity for a puggle to suffer? The shame. Atticus on the other hand, looks mighty chipper about the whole incident.

So, fellow A-list mutt aficinados, who is truly the alpha dog in this love triangle? Discuss.

Poor Boo!

agent H said...

If I was a $1000 designer pup myself, I would also be very irritated at having to walk and not be carried by my sexy human..(Jake).
However Boo...look at the bright side...you're view is nothing to complain about...mmm mmm

i think jake is the stud duck .... hmmm... dog.... in the 'triangle' ;P

and JW is the last entry on the first page of www. google.com!

Aww...poor naive Boo. Though the puggle maybe a cute little accessory to pick up girls, Atticus is of German ancestory. They come from strong stock those Germans. I'd bet a years supply of Kibbles and Bits Atticus is top dog in the Gyllenhaal kennel

i hope Mr Gyllenhaal Jr didn't inherit his father's feet. ugly :)

It's gotta be Jake!

Nothing Really Matters said...

Yay Boo! I want a Boo!

ncwoman said...

Alpha dog is Jake, followed by Atticus, with Boo (literally in this case) bringing up the rear.

Poor Boo, oh well, he can take comfort in the knowledge that he's second in cuteness behind Jake.

Muffin said...

GO ATTICUS!!!!!!!!!!

As adorable as Boo is it's great to see Atti getting the lions share of the attention for once....

claire said...

Atticus is too cool for school, he wins by a country mile.

S4M985 said...

scarey that the last pictures of boo was from mothers day. We've seen atticus since but not boo. For all we know boo is sitting in the gyllnehaal bad on a kings throne with servents airing him with palm leaves. I think HES the favourite!

^^for all we know they might have eaten him on the mother's day :P

Where is Boo? We haven't seen him in ages!!!

cina said...

kaydee are you trying to give me nightmares?!

Anonymous said...

I can reassure you somewhat regarding Boo. He HAS been sighted since the Gyllenhaal family stroll (Jake, Maggie, Peter, Ramona, Atticus) on 26 November.

About a week later ...

Granted, Boo does have that huge cuteness factor working for him, but.....
when Jake wants to reinforce his "don't mess with those near and dear to me" message to the paps, who is the top dog then? Atticus, of course.
No accident that it was Atti walking shotgun with Jake a few weeks ago with Maggie, Peter and baby...... no puggle's gonna beat a German Shepherd at the intimidation thing!

nice anonymous said...

Maybe Boo paused in his walk to cough for a bit, and looked like he might barf? Because he ate something nasty on the beach? Dogs often have heart-stopping (for their owners) gastronomical adventures.

Atticus is quite a handsome fellow, really. Even if that one ear tends to go a little loppy. He has a very strong black mask on his face. (Looks like he's ready to rob a 7-11.) He always looks so calmly possessive of Jake. Like, "I don't have to work for it like you do, Boo."

An Open Letter To Britpopbaby

We get it. You think you’re funny and Jake Watch is special. Guess what it’s mediocre at best. The design lacks creation, the posts once were funny are now just an obligation. PG is no help either. Let’s just be honest Jake Watch has really declined. Unlike Waiting For Toothy your commenters are boring and unable to add the missing life back to Jake Watch.

Remember when Jake Watch was fun? When you weren’t trying to be superior to any other blog? You’re giving your falling readership nothing much these days. Flush it down the toilet where it currently belongs.

Start over.

cina said...

GREMLIN! ;)

mpom said...

It would be my guess that when Daddy (Jake) has to be away for what ever reason, the kiddies, Atticus and Boo, stay with Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop. At least that's what is normal around here. Sometimes I have all five grandkids and both grand-dogs. Boo looks like he likes Grandmom alot. When we don't see him for a while he's probably hanging out with her.

britpopbaby said...

Mpom, do you have access to the JW forums?

hedda parsons said...

Boo= Red-headed step child!

Simon Agent 002 said...

I love Boo ,

Boo is good people!

Hail the Boo!!!

Did I ever tell you about a date I went on once?
Well the fellow started to get fresh with me, and he reached down and tried to squeeze my deep dark secret place!!!

The nerve!

Just before he was about to discover the "truth" of my gender....I let out a loud Squeel!

I let those guys know when I choose to..

..so forward of them.
Kick'em to the curb girls...that's what I always say... :)

no manners at all!

Ta,Ta, My Sweeties

Love Ya!

Face it BOO rules!

Frank Sinatra said...

Gotta tell ya kids...
I have a weakness for the BOO myself...

He makes feel so happy.

He makes me feel so blue.

Cause I'm just fall'n.

In a great BIG way for YOU!!

He makes me just want to sing! NOW!

"Kids always travel light and fly right, happy skies" ;)

Love Ya, Frank

Newport Girl said...

You haven't seen Boo because he's been way too busy mending all of the torn clothes those Jake Watch Agents have left behind on the fence.

Newport Girl said...

As for Atticus, it's his duty to be out on the streets, hunting and gunning down those rabid paps.

Oops, I meant rabid dogs.

The Bearded Lady said...

Well I do like to sun myself and get a fab tan.

But do to modesty,
I sunbathe a home....so I can have no tan lines around my ass. (tres non chic)

If I tried that at a public beach, I might scare the little ones...

You know how that is girlfiends...

Hail to the BOO

Ta, Ta, Sweeties Love ya's

Muffin said...

smurfette, it isn't pictures that are being linked to. It's a write-up on a blog about a woman meeting Jake, Boo and Atticus at a dog-park (in December) when her own dog tried to steal a baseball out of Jake's hand.

smurfette said...

thanks for clearing that up, muffin. cute story =).

britpopbaby said...

Can someone repost that link 'cos it's not working for me :(

Diana Rigg said...

Dear Boo,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
and MERRY CHRISTMAS
AND
A MOST JOYOUS NEW YEAR!


I hope you like your gift, forgive me I didn't have time to wrap it properly.
But see the cool card attached?

With love from ALL of us at Jake Watch

XXOO ;)

Perhaps when they auctioned off the autographed and "pawtographed" white wooden bone thing for the animal charity, it was told that it got quite a big amount of $$$ (does anyone know if it's ever been auctioned off yet and how much it went for ?) and Boo got a big head about it ... either that or they have him enslaved in the basement, making more and more and more to benefit more charities ???

making more what? bones?... or boos? :)

besides, i remember someone here at JW saying that boo's is spending all his time fucking their parrot or smth like that...

that, or he's really been eaten. :P

Newport Girl said...

Kaydee said "besides, i remember someone here at JW saying that boo is spending all his time fucking their parrot or smth like that..."

That would be me, although I said it a tad more politely, as in "having an affair." lol

Newport Girl said...

And like I mentioned before, Boo has been keeping awfully busy mending the clothes of the Jake Watch Agents, as they keep getting them caught and torn on the fence outside of Jake's house.

But then again, Boo could be confused in thinking that all those crotchless panties and nippleless bras need to be sewn up. And that the items in question weren't so much "caught" inasmuch as "draped over" the fence?

Note to Boo: Instead of spending all of your time mending, why don't you put some goodies in the tree hole out front?

Newport Girl said...

And by "goodies" I don't mean the kind you leave behind and are so proud of.

Newport Girl said...

Why don't you put some some of your Dad's goodies in the tree hole out front?

Anonymous said...

ohhh. i feel chastised :) bad bad kaydee ;)

Newport Girl said...

OMG that so DID NOT come out like I intended.

Newport Girl said...

Boo, by "goodies" I mean like gum, socks, candy, shiny penies. Just like in To Kill A Mockingbird. Okay, so no socks were in the tree, but we'll make an exception, right?

Newport Girl said...

OMFG
I really shouldn't drink hot tea when I post, it's bad for my spelling.

Boo, I meant to say "shiny pennies" but hey, if you want to put your Dad's "shiny penis" up in the tree that's fine with me. Just make sure it's still attached to him, okay? And make sure that it's just up in the tree, not in the tree hole (yuck).

OMG I better quit while I'm ahead.

Newport Girl said...

You know, I think I know why Atticus and Boo have those expressions.

Atticus, for one, is happy and smug that it wasn't his turn this year to dress up as a ham for Mother's Day.

Boo, on the other hand, is awfully bothered by that clove he has stuck in his butt.

Newport Girl said...

And if any of you don't *get* anything that I've said in my posts regarding Atticus and Boo today, you really, really need to go "scout" around and read "To Kill A Mockingbird." It's a "jem" of a book, and I know it inside and out.

Newport Girl said...

^^^I mention this so you all don't think I'm absolutely whacked out of my freakin mind talking about Atticus dressing up as a ham and Boo sewing up torn clothes caught on fences and goodies stuffed in tree holes and other stuff. lol

Kendra said...

Boo is now a grown up pet and can kick your ass, he isn't a baby anymore!

hedda parsons said...

This is totally off topic but there is a strong gas smell all over NYC, some places have been evacuated. My build smells of gas as well and I think we will be evacuating as well. This is freaking people out here as you can imagine. Sigh.

hedda parsons said...

Update: It seems the cause for the gas leak was a construction accident downtown, they hit a gas pipe. You can understand the panic here though.

britpopbaby said...

Is it fixed yet? Gas leak = not cool.

Anonymous said...

The mayor said that the smell was actually the chemical mercaptan. It's put into natural gas to alert everyone that there is a gas leak. Earlier reports of a construction accident downtown proved false. They still don't know what caused the smell but all seems quiet on the western front, the smell has dissapeared for the moment.

perfectscore_goldstar said...

*wonders if the doctor should "up" or "down" Newport Girl's meds ... ???*

I am still trying to clean up from the party that tramp of a parrot of yours and that tramp of a doggie of mine had ... *sheesh*

Wow ... anyone been on the Zodiac website lately ? That background noise stuff is some scary shiznit :-p

perfectscore_goldstar said...

Gas leaks are not cool by the way :-p

perfectscore_goldstar said...

Oh and this may (?) have already been posted (my computer is being really annoying and I don't have time to check ... sorry) but there are some new pictures up at the Zodiac site (but dayam that background noise/music is still scary as shiznit) and there is one GORGEOUS one of Jake from the side ... hubba hubba ... and Jake checking his watch is too cute ! And Jake ... just Jake is just ... *sigh* ...

Oh and I meant more bones with pawtographs, not more Boo's ... tho he could be doing both in the basement ... ???

perfectscore_goldstar said...

p.s. did you notice the 'disclaimer' on the R rated listing for Zodiac says "some strong killings" ... ??? !!!

perfectscore_goldstar said...

Okay one more post and then I'm DONE ! ! ! I feel totally and completely stupid (after watching the trailer I thought about this) ... I was watching Boy's Don't Cry last nite and totally did NOT realize that it was Sarsy in that movie who played John ! OMG ! But his voice is so damn distinctive ! What an idiot am I ??? *sheesh*

penny lane said...

To all you guys in NY: glad the gas leak did not develop into something disastrous and that everything seems to be OK.
