The Hairy Eyeball

Saturday afternoon, Mr.Taleteller found himself in the doghouse.  The whole thing was an accident, nobody was to blame, but it was clear that Bunny felt differently.  He went to change the DVD we were watching and took a step back.  His foot happened to step on Bunny's tail.  A greyhound scream of death was issued.  Many apologies followed.

After that, Bunny ran over and hopped up on the couch, clearly believing that I could make it better or at least keep her safe.  She refused to look at Mr. Taleteller at that point.  This resulted in him making many entreaties to her to look at him.  She turned her adoring gaze at me and made her feelings very obvious.  A short time later, she moved over to the dog bed, having decided that I was too shifty to lay on for very long.

Once she laid on the dog bed, Mr. Taleteller, in a last effort to redeem himself in her amber eyes, covered her up with is favorite quilt.  She did finally look at him, but it was with the hairiest eyeball I have seen in a long time.  I predict that Mr. Taleteller will be feeling a case of guilt for a long time.  It's funny how easily they can manipulate our emotions!

  3. Ahhh the canine hairy eyeball. Almost as formidable as the wifely hairy eyeball....almost.

  4. Tail-stepping should NOT be allowed under any circumstances!

  5. No doubt she will be milking that for years to come and telling stories to all visitors about her terrible incident of abuse.


  6. lol - oh, boy, do we know the greyhound scream of death and the hairy eyeball!!

  7. Work it, Bunny! I bets you can ride the guilt train all the way to extra noms for at least a day or maybe even two!! Um, what I meant to say should most definitely forgive Mr. Taleteller right away, Bunny. Yep...that's what I meant to say all right.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  8. Oh gosh.
    Poor, poor Bunny. It's a good thing that you let him know how serious his crime was.
    Hope your tail feels better soon!

  9. And woo let him sleep IN the house that night?


  10. Hairy eyeball, that's fabulous!! The momma was rolling over that one!! The momma always calls it the stink eye!! Way to go Bunny!! We always seem to know just how to push the guilt buttons on the mommas and the daddies!!!

  12. Awww Bunny, he didn't mean it! Give him another chance!

  13. Poor Bunny! She seems to like to hold a grudge. I am always tripping over my three in the kitchen. They like to hang out in hopes that I will drop some tasty morsels....... The male dogs take it in stride when I accidentally step on their paws. Emmy will run to her Daddy and peek at me from time to time, then stick her head in the air and look the other way.

  14. I could use some lessons in "hairy eyeballin'". It would go nicely with my "I'm ignorin' you" face.

    Woofs and hairy slobbers,
    Chester ;0=)

  15. At least he gave you his favorite quilt? That was nice, right? :)

  16. Bunny -

    Just remember to whimper everytime you see the Mr. Like when I had a paw stepped on, I would limp on that paw. Or the other one. I did change a lot. But it worked for sympathy.

  17. oh man, i closed the car door on the tip of Loki's tail a few weeks ago before dog school class. Holy cow! he would NOT take any food from me and he looked at me with the most submissive face as if i betrayed him. oddly, he was really good in class that day. It made me wonder if pre-emptive beating was a good method of training your dog... ;)

  18. Poor Bunny! Hope you're fully recovered!

    take care

  19. When used properly, guilt is a wonderful device.


  20. Bunny!
    I know he did not do in on purpose!
    I hope you forgive him soon!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  21. Ah yes, life with a drama queen, I know it well. :)
