I really thought Blue was dead for a minute. Red kept chewing on his paws and finally, after at least two or three minutes, he started moving again. How soundly can a puppy sleep that another puppy can literally try to eat it for several minutes before it wakes up?

This needs a NSFW tag at ALL moments. First off, you don't get any work done. Then, your coworkers will wonder what all that cooing is coming from your cubicle. Once they find out, THEY won't get any work done either. Pretty soon everyone will be watching puppies in a box instead of working and the entire world economy collapses.

Where are the puppies? I was promised puppies, and I see none. :(

Apparently it's not 24/7 puppies... :(

Well, that's that.

Metafilter broke puppies.

I'm sure the puppies' contract rider provides them private downtime...and all the Kibble 'n Bits® (with the green bits removed -- ala Van Halen's brown M&M®s) they can eat!

John McCain stole the puppies!!!!!!!!!!

It's not that simple. Palin shot them and McCain ate them.

rtha: cat got bored and wanted to get out. Apparently she's got the attention span of a cat.

In the meantime, watch a mussel grow.

Well, that's a cat for you, lodev.

But I am feeling disenfranchised by both puppies AND cats. Grrrrr.

God. Even Cheddarvision has abandoned me!

Questions that remain unanswered in the wake of the puppycam disappearance:

Just wanted to say thank you for this. I had to put my adorable, sweet, much-loved fifteen-year-old terrier mix to sleep yesterday. I wandered around in a daze today, occasionally staring at the place her bed used to be and bursting into tears. I was hesitant to click on this link because I wasn't sure if I would be able to enjoy it so soon but it made me feel a little better. If only I could dive in there and snorgle their little bellies and get a good whiff of puppy breath.

Obama has promised his daughters a puppy. Puppycam in the White House!!!

My condolences, lysistrata.

I'm watching the doodles. They're cute, but bigger and playful. I wanna box of sleepy pups!

PuppyCam is back online! Though Green and Yellow seem to have eaten the others overnight.

Heee... when they're all sleeping, and one puppy moves, it sets off a chain reaction of squirming sleeping puppies.

I've been saying for years now that there needs to be a Baby Animal Channel on TV.

24 hours a day. Nothing but baby aminals all the time.

This PROVES that The Baby Animal Channel has to happen. I would watch it, y'all would watch it, everyone would watch it.

I'd actually pay for cable if Animal Planet launched Baby Animal Planet.

I really could (and do) watch this all day. Especially now that the camera moved and we can see them frolicking outside of the box as well!

Animal Planet does show the Puppy Bowl every year opposite the Superbowl.

Someone tried that, and it was kind of a failure: This American Life on "The Puppy Channel".

Can someone summarize the TAL episode so that I can keep reading while listening to the pup yips and not listen to TAL? TIA.

Basically, this woman's father quit his job (advertising? sales?) to start a 24hr cable channel that featured nothing but video of puppies. He shopped it around to the big media conglomerates and there was no real interest. If I remember right, he even wrote a theme song that was a solo piano piece where the man said puppies! puppies! puppies! over and again.

It didn't seem like there was a lot of zip to the guy's business plan. But he seemed like a nice guy and a true believer in the entertainment value of puppies.

I think we can all get behind that.
