the hairy eyeball

woe is meeeeee.  
i am filled up with sad feelins cuz i got the hairy eyeball TWICE from my mama in the last 48 hours.  i've never gotten it twice before.  once is totally bad enough.
it all started out on thursday evening when mama and daddy got home from work.  mama told me that i was starting my level 2 obedience class that night.  i was so very, very, very, very excited.  i loooove obedience class cuz i get to meet other doggies, and i get an endless buffet of little smokies.  yummy yummers.  so mama took me and asa out in the backyard, and we did zoomies until we were both super pooped.  then mama said it was time to go.  mama, daddy, and i got in the car and we rode to class.  well, i was supposed to be kinda tired from all the zoomies in the backyard, but i guess i wasn't, cuz mama says i bolted into the class room and made a beeline for the first dog in sight, a most beautimous rottie named godiva.  i did some kinda flippy twirly thingie and got all tangled in my leash and fell on top of miss godiva and her mama, and my mama almost fell over from me pullin' her when she was unprepared.  the instructor lady came runnin' over and had to help untangle all of us.  then i got banned to the corner chair.  that was hairy eyeball number 1.
after that, i was really tryin' to be on my best behaviors.  i did pretty good in class.  here are some action shots for proof!
check out my sit-stay.

now we are workin' on come/recall.

 here's a leave it.  i wanted that ball soooo bad, but i didn't touch it!

 time for down-stay.

look, mama, i'm still in down-stay.  love me, pretty please!

okay, now where's my little smokey??

did you drop it?

i continued being a good boy all day friday, and most of the day today...until late this afternoon.  mama and daddy took asa and i to the petsmart to get more foodables!  daddy was walkin' asa, and mama was walkin' me.  mama was pulling a hooge bag of nom noms off the shelf when i saw a bassett hound dude, and i had to say hihi.  well, i didn't ask mama, and i just started goin', and the leash tangly thingie happened again, and i pulled mama over, and the foodables fell on top of her.  oh boy.  hairy eyeball number 2.
i promise my entire box of greenies that i am not a bad boy!  i just get the distractions way easy like.  mama says i have a bee under my bonnet, whatever that means.  please help...i don't want mama to be unhappy with me forever!!!

I totally understand! There are no strangers in the world, just people and dogs that I have not been formally introduced to yet! Be patient with your mom, she'll figure out how to stay out of the leash soon enough!

Have a very Happy Easter!


P.S. I love the clouds and grass on your blog!

We've never heard of the hairy eyeball, but we have gotten the scrunched up face from mom before. And, oh boy Bookerman. Twice in one day cannot be good!

We hope you have a relaxing Easter!

Wow you look like you're doing very well in class! I hope you didn't hurt your mama when you pulled her so hard! Sometimes its easy to forget there's a human on the other end of your leash - but you have to try and remember so you don't hurt them, okay? I'm sure you'll get the hang of it soon!

Inky and Molly said...

oh poor Bookerman. We feel for ya. A classic case of being misunderstood. You are not at fault. Shouldn't have a leadie thing on ya in the first place and if SHE was paying more attention to what really matters well then maybe certain accidents could be prevented. What can we say, it's the same thing over here. THEY just don't get it, do they??

Hairy eyeballs are the worst. Maybe she's done for awhile.

Oh Booker Man, I is just apawed ats how you gets treated. Firsts off, they sent you to skool..what up with dat? Thens, they treats you like a doggie by putting a rope on ya neck. What is they doing????? And then you mom goes and grows hair from her eyeballs.
PS: Mom is making me write that I, Puddles needs skooling MORE than any doggie around AND I could NEVER be trusted off da rope.

Lola said...

Oh Booker Man, you do need help. Never apologize, never explain. That's such an important rule. It works especially well if you're generally well behaved but have a few areas where you just can't see the human point of view. You are a proud member of a Very Friendly Breed. It's a feature, not a bug.

wags, Lola

Booker - at least you were just trying to be friendly and not EAT those other doggies! It's real easy to get 'em to forget about that stuffs if you're on your bestest behaviors for a day or so and then look at 'em with your biggest, widest, Most Cutest puppy dog eyes. They're suckers for that kinda stuff. (But to be on the safe side, do try to remembers not to pull your momma over in the next class.)

Wiggles & Wags,

I am soooo sorry you got TWO full Hairyeyeballs. NOT fair. I can understand her giving you ONE..maybe butt never TWO in a row. Those things are really ... disturbing..
She should have given you the STINK EYE for one of them, at least. I am sure that your mom is most sorry about this whole nasty affair.

We all kinda let our impulses get to us from time to time, especially when it involves meeting new friends! I'm thinking that as soon as you look at your momma with that cute face, the hairy eyeballs are but a distant memory! Happy Easter to you & Asa!!

I'm pretty sure the hairy eyeball means they are happy with you. Just keep doing what you're doing. ;)



We hope you and your family had a blessed day!

Hi Booker - oh, these humans can be fickle creatures can't they?! One minute talking to us in a cooing, baby voice that makes a pup feel really good, the next they're giving that 'hairy eyeball'. We're sure your mom is over it now - you'll get used to the humans mood swings as you get older, we have, and you'll have them trained up in no time at all, he he he!!

Hey, it sure was good to get to know more about Asa the other day - we're looking forward to her Friday posts. You're such a good brother to share your blog.

You poor puppy, bad things happen all the time - I bet she loves you anyways!!


Mack and Mia said...

Don't even worry about it Booker. I mean seriously, I get Hairy eyeballs on the DAILY! Just give a wittle puppy face and some kissies and your momma will totally forget!

I mean besdies, we are labradudes, what does she expect, it's our DUTY to meet and greet EVERY doggy and hooman!

Wags and Woofs,
Mack and Mia
