Snort! I do this to my dog all the time - she looks equally unsure of what to make of it.

I love the eyes closed/blissful look of the second picture. Must have caught a really good up-draft.

 |  Sep 09, 2008 at 08:46 PM

Higher! Higher!

 |  Sep 09, 2008 at 08:48 PM

I think this is one the cutest ones yet.

When I opened up the page I actually said, "oooooh" out loud.

Love it!

...He's got David Bowie eyes...

/No, seriously --- one blue, one brown.

I like his different googly eyes! And his practically hairless pink skin. Hilariously cute!

 |  Sep 09, 2008 at 09:58 PM

This made me laugh like Peter Griffin. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujPGPvmMhhs

 |  Sep 09, 2008 at 09:59 PM

Makes me think of "Kiwi."

 |  Sep 09, 2008 at 10:12 PM

Hey Theo! :)


As a fan of Bowie, I am aware of his eye condition, but the protective contact lens he wears gives the appearance of one blue + one brown.

I was being, like, tewtally superficial here.

/I doubt this lovely pooch dances in the moonlight, the serious moonlight.

 |  Sep 09, 2008 at 10:27 PM

How many legs does that cutie have?

 |  Sep 09, 2008 at 10:30 PM

That dog has the trickest eyeball ever! It looks like it's a blue ring around a brown center! What an awesome portrait!

Sorry Biscuithead, you don't get prtective lens o this sort of injury, my brother has te exact same problem. What you may be thinking of is this quote:

Doctors could not fully repair the damage, leaving his pupil permanently dilated. As a result of the injury, Bowie has faulty depth perception. Bowie has stated that although he can see with his injured eye, his colour vision was mostly lost and a brownish tone is constantly present. The colour of the irises is still the same blue, but since the pupil of the injured eye is wide open, the colour of that eye is commonly mistaken to be different.

Bowie SEES brown out of that eye.

Aww that pup looks so happy, he's smiling!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 03:32 AM

Have no fear, Super Pup is here!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 03:57 AM

Nobody knows why bumblebees can fly- and now, the question is reopened about how bulldogs can fly, I smell dissertation!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 04:46 AM

2nd picture: Ahhhhh! BLISS!
Ah b'leeve Ah kin flah!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 04:50 AM

That reminds me, I need to make an appointment for a pedicure. Maybe I can take this little girl with me and we can make a day of it at the spa!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 05:37 AM

AWWW!!! This doggy wants to fly!!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 05:39 AM

I LOVE the second pic.. too cute!!!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 05:40 AM

Is it a bird,
Is it a plane?
Nooo!! It's the
Able to slurp his food dish,
Able to leap small fire hydrants at a single bound -
The CANINE CRUSADER leads a never-ending effort for truth, justice, and decency for dogs the world over! (but he left his cape at home!)

"I'm King of the World...woo-hoo"
*cue sappy Titanic theme*

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 06:04 AM


Its Rotta the Hutt! From the clone wars movie I was forced to sit through!


The second picture just makes it.

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 06:09 AM

Hooray for Una! :P

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 06:25 AM

Eaglie, I thought of the kiwi too with that blissful 2nd pic with eyelids at half mast. So happy to finally be airborne!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 06:39 AM

In the first one, he looks like my High
School "Shop" teacher, Mr. Groszko.

I love Una!!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 07:12 AM

Awww! She is smilingk!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 07:19 AM

Not only are the eyes different colors, but they are scanning in different directions. An important safety feature for flying dogs.

like a reindeer in the sky

You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 07:25 AM

2nd photo is AWESOME! Yay for flying dogs!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 07:26 AM

However, Jane Seymour really does have one blue eye and one brown eye.

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you
Now I'm in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your breath - it gets better
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me

Couldn't help myself. That's what I immediately thought of!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 07:29 AM

Kris - OK, you've chosen a good piece to work with... now rewrite it for Una.

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 07:40 AM

Rev724 -- here you go:

(it's a GINORMOUS photo, but you definitely can see her eye colors)

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 07:43 AM

I was in a terrible mood and then I saw this post and everything was better. This is why I love this site. :)

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 08:07 AM

Teho - I will have to address that this afternoon - work suddenly became WORK! HMPH! Back laters!


 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 08:15 AM

great googly eyes, batman!

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 08:37 AM

Hmm, kinda reminds me of dis guy:

My cousin was BORNED with one blue eye and one brown, so there. But he does not possess the Marty Feldman bidirectional gaze.

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 10:16 AM

@Biscuithead-- So just change the lyrics to "She's got Marty Feldman eyes."

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 10:20 AM

"i like the weeeeend!"

 |  Sep 10, 2008 at 10:27 AM

The first picture looks like Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly" - "my sole intention/is learning to fly!/Condition grounded/but determined to try." And the second picture looks like Talking Heads "And She Was" "And she was moving very slowly/rising up above the earth/moving into the universe/drifting this way and that/not touching the ground at all/up above the yard!"
