Me Needs Glasses! YIKES

Oh Dear Mee!

Da Momma took me's to see da dogter last week
(after me runned into her's leg fur bout da 87th time)

Dis has been goin on fur a while but when's me nearly knocked meself unconscious, her decided dat was da last straw (whatever dat means!)

Actually me probably hurt her leg when me head butted it and dat made her decide to takes me to da dogter.

Da dogter put me in a dark dark room {insert scary shiver} and he puts on some scary glasses {insert anudder scary shiver} (Hey doc, me da one wit da seeing pwoblem so why you got da glasses on??)

Anyway.....me eyes be jus' fine.  My retinas still be attached to me eyeballs and dere is no cat-er-racks or glue-commas in dere.  So da dogter said me is jus not seeing tings dat are close up (like da tweets da Momma sometimes dangles in front of me face).  Butt me can see jus fine if ya move back bout a paw!

So da dogter said me pwobably needs some weenie contacts.
Me tinks me looks more professional like dis!
 What you guys tink???
Da Momma had her head in da kitchen cabinets all day yesterday {enough cleaning already}.  So her made me miss Corbin's special day.
While da Momma was cleanin', me was readin all da wonder-fur Blogville postees yesterday and ya'll barked everyting dat me would of barked if my assistant would of assisted me!  
BUTT, let me jus say now!
(Cause dat's jus what we do...make peeps hap-pee)
Don't discriminate by breed cause we is all da same no matter what we's look like!
Da following announcement is fur all of us who has to protect our yards:

Basic Rules for Dogs Who Have a
Yard To Protect

Newspapers: If you have to go to the bathroom while playing in the front yard, always use the newspaper that's placed in the driveway every morning for that purpose.
Visitors: Quickly determine which guest is afraid of dogs. Charge across the room, barking loudly and leap playfully on this person. If the human falls down on the floor and starts crying, lick its face and growl gently to show your concern.
Barking: Because you are a dog, you are expected to bark. So bark - a lot. Your owners will be very happy to hear you protecting their house. Especially late at night while they are sleeping safely in their beds. There is no more secure feeling for a human than to keep waking up in the middle of the night and hearing your protective bark, bark, bark ...
Licking: Always take a big drink from your water dish immediately before licking your human. Humans prefer clean tongues. Be ready to fetch your human a towel.
Holes: Rather than digging a big hole in the middle of the yard and upsetting your human, dig a lot of smaller holes all over the yard so they won't notice. If you arrange a little pile of dirt on one side of each hole, maybe they'll think it's gophers. There are never enough holes in the ground. Strive daily to do your part to help correct this problem.
Doors: The area directly in front of a door is always reserved for the family dog to sleep.
Sniffing: Humans like to be sniffed. Everywhere. It is your duty, as the family dog, to accommodate them.
Dining Etiquette: Always sit under the table at dinner, especially when there are guests, so you can clean up any food that falls on the floor. It's also a good time to practice your sniffing.
Housebreaking: Housebreaking is very important to humans, so break as much of the house as possible.
Going for Walks: Rules of the road: When out for a walk with your master or mistress, never go to the bathroom on your own lawn.
Couches: It is perfectly permissible to lie on the new couch after all your humans have gone to bed.
Playing: If you lose your footing while chasing a ball or stick, use the flower bed to absorb your fall so you don't injure yourself.
Cats: When chasing cats, make sure you never *quite* catch them. It spoils all the fun.
Chewing: Make a contribution to the fashion industry ... Eat a shoe.


OK's every buddy.  Now me has to go and snoopervise da Momma wit her cleaning project some more.
Don't furget me.....me be da one wit da glasses!

Well Lawdy Bee, that sure is odd that you is short-sided. I have the glaucoma in one eye and it is a big bummer, but I stay on top of it. Anyhoo, I think spectacles would look very dashing on you! Totally agree on the Licking rule. Water dribbles on the floor get extra points.


Suka said...

Your comments for the Pitty Post Day are excellent! Could not have woofed it better myself!

Cool glasses, Amber - you look very chic in them. Phantom doesn't hear much of anything and he doesn't see so well either, maybe we need to get him some new specs with hearing aids attached - BOL.

Love those doxie rules. We need to insert sibe for dachshund everywhere and post those rules here too.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Dexter said...

Maybe you need those progressive lenses like my old momma has. Then you can see all close up AND far away. Or maybe just tie a big stick to your head so it will alert you when things are close.


Scrappy Angel said...

whew...i was worried for you when I first started reading! glad all is well with the eyes...it's just that the treats were too close to your eyes and they must've got crossed, I think! I love your Dachsund Rules...Yorkie rules seem very close...i always go under the covers to warm up!

Dachshund Nola said...

White Dog Blog said...

The new glasses are stylish and practical...and you look very lovely in them (brains and beauty)!

Enjoy the cleaning frenzy!

Ziggy Stardust said...
