Pic and a Word Challenge #192: Eyes

We’ve been having some pet misalignment. Luckily, we are just visiting.

The eyes have it.

brand new,
easily amused,

His, as he looks at me:
“Tell me she is not going home with us.
Did you see?
She doesn’t stop.
She doesn’t sleep.
She knows no fear.
She will attack me
when you least expect it
and that will be the end of me
and you will all cry at my funeral.
Little black fluffball, sure!
With devil’s eyes!”

And then it’s dinner time.
Steaks, almost from the picture.
He reminds us
he is not willing to share the leftovers,
not because he is “the only child”
but because he is a beast
and she is clearly old enough to eat meat.
Who has the devil’s eyes now?

Here is a selection of eyes that I have to deal with. In other news, Rome is hot and on the brink of a new garbage crisis. The last one was around Christmas when it was cold. Imagine full, rotting garbage containers now.

  1. I think I like pretzel eye best!

    Poor doggo, suffering black fluffball, Sadie lives with three kitties, so poor doggo her, too.

    Not Canadian Goose. At least, not like here. Our Canadian geese have skinny necks and beady eyes and run off all the other geese and ducks. Sigh. I’ll see if I can’t send you pictures.

    1. Thanks, Joey. Indeed, it’s a different bestia. Certainly not common around here, so I supposed it was Canadian. 😀 It’s also huge! The dog is not as poor as he is protective of his food and that’s scary. I’ll have to be extra careful to keep them separated at meal times.


I will not ask you questions at the end of posts to trick you into commenting. So when you do it on your own, it's that more appreciated. Thank you!
