Hawky says, "Houston, we have a problem!"

One evening DB and I returned home from supper expecting to be greeted at the door by Hawky, as usual, but as we entered the house there came no clip clip clip of doggy nails across the linoleum, no body jiggling, fierce doggy waggling, no exuberant sneezes of pleasure! Oh no! Instead all we could hear was Hawk's high pitched whine coming from somewhere within the house. Fearing the worst I quickly ran to see what was the matter but to my surprise I found Hawk standing stock still in the middle of the hallway, his ears pricked forward and his whole body preening with an inarticulate whine that expressed nothing but acute frustration! Of course I talked to him as if he were human and asked,

"What is it? What's wrong!!?? Has Timmy fallen in the well?"

Hawky's body quivered and he yelped impatiently before turning and trotting into the bathroom.

Curious as to what he could possibly have him in such a tizzy, I followed.

When I flicked on the bathroom light I was surprised to find Hawky sitting intently before the toilet staring in to the recesses of the bowl as if the proverbial Timmy really were lost within it's recesses.

What was it?

I believe Hawky's impatient and high pitched whine could be interpreted as, "OMG!! It's my ball! My ball!! It's drowning!! DROoooooWNING!!! Hurry! *he calls like a Curler* Hurry and save it!!" And I swear he was actually trying to put get his leg over the lip in an effort to paw it out!

I wish my dog loved me as much as he loves his ball. When or if I fell in the toilet (ehem! Men! Seat DOWN please) I bet Hawky wouldnt lift a paw to save me:)

*no balls were harmed in the making of this post*

  4. That is GREAT and oh-so-true! The love of Chula's life is her ball, but it's a large stuffed neoprene covered ball used for water play. She carries it around and uses it as a pillow.

    Fetch the c-clamp, girl!

  5. What a cute post. I bet Hawk would tell someone if you fell in the toilet, he just wouldn't post pictures because he loves you too much

  7. HA! That is pretty cute - my dog hasn't done that yet, probably because he has no problem dunking his head in water to get stuff out.

    But he would be crushed if his ball were in peril too!

    Very Cute!

  9. We have a cat who thinks his toys often need to be washed, and we now have to check the toilet before using. Sometimes he can fish them out on his own. But that means we have to consider if we REALLY want to pick up his toys to toss them for him anymore. Where HAS it been?

  10. Stephanie- It is funny because Hawk drops his ball in his water bucket all the time and will dive in (about 8 inches) to fish it out all the time... but we never have caught him drinking out of the toilet (he is not allowed) and I was actually surprised that his head wasnt wet nor would he try to dive in for it... I like to think he was smart enough to understand that because of it's position (wedged in the hole) he wouldnt have been able to get it.

  11. Poor Hawky Dog! Good Mama for rescuing his ball!

    So far, we've avoided that same issue here. 4 dogs and ya'd think we'd have encountered an issue like that!
