I was almost blinded last night, and to top it off, it was my M who almost blinded me!

What happened was, we were at the park and my M was alternating between scratching my head and throwing the ball for Helios to fetch. On one throw, I happened to inch forward just as she was swinging her arm back for a throw and she ended up giving me a blow to the head instead!


Unfortunately, her nails happened to scratch my eyes. I was so in pain and shock that I jumped up, turned around and ran a few steps away. Aunty G even heard me growl in shock. I wasn't even sure if I was growling, or it could be a grunt. But it definitely was PAINFUL! My left eye was tearing and I kept blinking my left eye and for a moment, I can't really open it.

Of course my M apologised profusely and hugged me, but she was laughing about it as well! Humph! She should have shown me more concern, like feeding me more to keep my mind off the trauma!

Can I change my M? It's dangerous living with such a clumsy owner....

Oh my gosh! You poor thing! I know how painful it is gt I got bitten in the eye while playing too... It was PAINFUL! I hope your eye is not damaged by her M's nails... My mommy got accidentally bitten in the eyeball too by Faith last time & her eyes swelled, her eyeball was in red in color & there's a layer of skin peeled of her eyeball. Ok Ok, I know this sounds sick! She said she can't even blink coz everytime she does it, it's rubbing the part where the layer of skin was tared off. It healed after a few days... Ouchy! Hope your eye is okay today.

Love licks,

Poor Herbie..Im thinking bout the same thing too. Mayb we can switch our mom but it seems like both also clumsy bum bum, so just keep them 1st....and give them more lesson on how to become a good owner.

hi Herbie,

Didnt know u have hurt your eye when we met on Thu. I hope you are alright now. If u want to change your human, mayb you could exchange cos' my human is worse. She made me bump my head against the wall and she laughed. Mayb it's my fault but it's her that threw the ball so near to the wall and in my enthuasim, I bump loudly and my head spins.
Woof, Nova.
