eYewatch friday

hi every bloggie!
Happy eYewatch Friday! Between judging, chasing frogs, traversing trails and going to day camp, I take classes too. I thought I graduated good dog 101 and 201 and I even started agility prep! But I'm back in school again.
So I'm looking around to check out my classmates. My teacher often says "staring is rude" but I couldn't believe my eyes.
Look at that muscle butt... does it look familiar?
Oh yes the hardest working dog in bloggieville, my cuz Tula and fun aunt dee are in my class. Well let me clarify hard working... she is usually sawing logs but between the shut eye she works hard to keep her cool when she sees other dogs.
What What what? So if Tula's in this class why am I? huh? I'M not a RUFFIAN or reactive dog - I'm just crackery. Well fun aunt dee is a special education teacher. She used her teacher trickery to influence Paul my teacher to do an inclusion class- non reactive mixed with the ruffian "graduates". Between u and me, I never saw Tula's diploma. Well Tula and me.. we'd like to play together but this is first step. We're getting to do the same things together in a controlled safe way in close proximity. Maybe someday this year.. you'll see us play. Keep your paws crossed.
And for a skywatch edition of eYewatch.. check out this spooky foto.

Mango Minster update! Wahoo! the CDIT group is finally getting ready to hit the Mango Minister 2010 ring. Petey was so concerned about my wellbeing - knowing I required nourishment after my trail run yesterday- look what he did. Check out his blog post... he's quite the CDIT friend... not a bribe right?


  1. NORWOOD! That Petey is up to no good for sure.

    Watch out for Tula Monstah! She sounds a lot like my Beautiful Raja who was always snapping at me when I tried to snuggle. Those gals are so temperamental.


  2. I've got my kitty cat paws crossed big time that you & Tula can play "for real" together! That's what cousins are suppose to do!
    Happy Eyewatch Friday!
    your pal,

  3. I hope you cousins can play and not get too rough. Cousins can have sibling rivalry, too, trust me.

  4. Norwood, that is so cool that you and Tula are going to school together. maybe whe Stumpy heads east you can, all three, have a play date!

    Stumpy says your spooky is almost as scary as hers

  5. Keep your eyes on Tula, I have heard of hot dogs but hot cats also well I have seen everything now.

  6. Hummmm. GRADUATE School. My mom says that costs lots and lots of green papers. Did you get a collarship or something????

  7. So how much are they payin' YOU to be the class guinea pig?

    Seriously, I hope that Tula learns how to play well with others and that you learn not to run with scissors.

    I always heard they'll throw anything into the hot dog batch but this is ridiculous!

    Happy Weekend Norwood!
    Chester ;0=)

  8. Hey wait a minute...YOU'RE a judge at Mangominster, Norwood??? Why, that's the first Ive heard of it! And now that nasty word "bribe" is being thrown around, besmirching my good and charitable name!

    Tell those naysayers, Norwood...have I asked you for anything in exchange for those delicious, life-sustaining hotdogs? Noooooooo!

    Your innocent pal,

  9. Hi Norwood,

    This is your third class? Wow, you are really moving up Buddy!

    Does this mean you are working on your P.H.D.? "PROUD & HAPPY DOGGIE"!

    Good job and not to worry, you are better then any of those other Norwood Wanta-be's!

    Luv ya Pal,
    Riley and Star.

  10. "Bribe" is such a hot-button word. We prefer the term "favor" instead.

    YOU and Tula are going to school together???!!!!!
    That's incredible!!!!!
    We hope you and her could play really one of the next days!!!!!

    We love your photos at the school lay down on your fluffy look soooooooooooo elegant!!!!
    ANd your eyewatch pic is soooooooooooo "dark"!!!!
    Have a great great weekend and we know you'll be a great judge in Mango's minster!!!!!

  12. Wow! Grad School - with Tula BOL!!! Well... you have got to tell us what courses you're taking and such so we can learn too okay? Can't wait to find out about the class you are judging! Petey certainly went to a lot of trouble to save you winkwink!
    Hugs xo

  13. Norwood

    We're very impressed with all these classes!

    We're sure you're immune to any bribes in any case!!

    take care

  14. OOOO have fun in your new class :)

  15. Norwood, we hope you have a lot of fun in your new class, and that you and Tula are able to play together soon!

  16. Whoa, you're busy! You're in training? With the TULA? OMD can't wait to hear more about this. I'm already chuckling. Go on and stare...I do it too.
    Checked out your nutty furiend's post too. BOL

  17. Looks like school might be a little fun...Let us know how things go!


  18. Tula just probably doesn't know what to do with all that cracker charm! that's the problem. turn the charm off or turn it down a couple of notches. she'll warm up!

  19. Forgot to ask, why is it eyewatch friday?

  20. you hang in there sweet norwood
    those gals can be quite moody knowing they are bewootiful with muscley butts.

    pibble sugars
    the houston pittie pack

  21. Oh no, certainly not a bribe! LOL!
    Love you in Spooky mode Norwood. :)

  22. We think it's pretty neat that you and Tula are in the same class together, Norwood!
    The Terriers are in the ring! You sure have your work cut out for you! There are awesome entries there!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  23. So, do woo miss getting to stare at my butt?

    PeeEssWoo: Nice skEYE pikh!

  24. Hi, Norwood!
    I am sure you had a great time at your class!
    Yes... that is a very spooky picture!
    Bribes?? Hmmmm.... Naaah!
    Kisses and hugs

  25. Exactly how much more education do you need?

  26. Hi, Buffy here, Mom doesn't bring me to school...hmmmm maybe she should :)

  27. Norwood are you sure you aren't suppose to be doing the teaching? Tula may need a few pointers..

    Big Sloppy Kisses
    Gus, Louie and Callie

  28. Well we are seeing a new side to Petey, these last few days, are we not, Norwood? I trust that you are a dog of integrity, who would not be swayed by such, er, tokens of appreciation.
    Oh and by the way it's Hamish. Not Hammish.
    And I drink Scotch (not Irish) whisky (not whiskey)...
    Cheers, H.

  29. Hi Norwood, that is one spooky photo, we felt a chill just looking at it. Did you feel the presence of any other doggies when it was taken? Brrr!!

    We think school is fun. We're not allowed to attend our school together - we're told we're a bad influence on each other, he he he!

    Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

  30. nice weiner! heh.



    It's ME, LACIE....

    Yes...sweet little Laciegirlie...

    Now that your judging days are OVER...

    I'm thinking we should go on a DATE.

    HEH HEH HEH....

    I'm just tryin' to think of the best place to go....

    (Lacie bares her teeth in a frightening display of canines...)

    Sweet little barks,


  32. Pee ess...I was listed in Mangominster as a WELSH TERRIER...

    And Taffy won...and he's a Welsh Terrier...


    I'm just sayin'....

    I'm thinkin' we might go to the zoo...

  33. Retired Judge Norwood. Sir. Your Honor.

    We are writing to let you know we respect your clear consideration and objectivity. Your linear thinking. Your fairness and impartiality. Your honorable decision making.

    Now we just wonder if you'll apply those same qualities to the recent advances of Sweet Lacie. Hmmm. Just when you thought the hard work was over!

    Respectfully yours,
    Jake and Fergi

  34. very studious looking you 2 sandy

  35. So you're working on your PhD, huh? You are a brilliant student. Oh, and I see you on something my teacher called the Relaxation Mat. It took me like forever to understand the concept of relaxation!

    I'd love your vote in Mango's a tough show down for sure!

    Yes, it's a bit like MA down here in MD. We woke up to about 2 1/2 feet of snow still in the street. NO plows in sight!

    I'm off for more cavorting and snow swimming.

    Your pal,

  36. Norwood, you didn't come up with that awful moniker "Cracker Dog Insane Terriers" and perhaps there should just be an "Insane Cracker Dog" category that's open to all breeds. I just object to the officials at MangoMinster's display of jealousy by labeling ALL terriers as "Insane Cracker Dogs." Perhaps it is your Blue Heeler genes that make you a tad crackers? Have you considered that? (Looks again at Norwood's lineage - "Jack Russell terrier." Uh oh. The definition of crazed cracker dog.)

    Those hotdogs were for you because you were clearly starving in those arctic conditions. And besides, once injested, they are non-returnable.

    Now pal oh pal...I think you're being a bit too devil-may-care when it comes to facing, much less DATING Lacie. Take it from somedog older and wiser—she puts the "fur" (usually yours) in ferocious in her sweeter moments. I dare not even imagine her vengeful persona!

    However, shall you survive, I'll be certain to send on your "Lacie Date Survival" bracelet.

    Your pal,


  37. That blue of the arena would put us off playing too. Sheesh, can someone turn that down!?!


Hi It's Me! Frog on and make your comment.
