contact lenses for sad dogs

A method to make my dog look cheerier
  [vote for,

Puppies are wonderful things, but when I look in the eyes of my [adult] dog, I feel the walls of grief come crashing down on me. I named my first dog "Odysseus", my next "Job", and I became too depressed to name the third. That pair of moist brown orbs pull me into a black hole of hopelessness.

I suggest what is needed is a set of blue-colored contact lenses with very small irises (OK, "irese" for you lingo-snobs). This would turn my "Heart of Darkness" dog into a "Disney" dog. I would change his name to "Skippy!"

       I bet they're more "secret sharer" than "heart of darkness".

       I think what you are really searching for is a counselor. Don't blame your dog...

       Counselor? What are you talking about? My dog IS my counselor!   

       <Ninja> I stand corrected. The plural of "axis" is "axes", so I just used that same rule, but maybe that only applies to Latin root words. Ah never sed I wuz an English majur.

       Don't know when I've been so blue
Don't know what's come over you
You've found someone new
And don't it make my brown eyes blue
I'll be fine when you're gone
I'll just cry all night long
Say it isn't true
And don't it make my brown eyes blue

Tell me no secrets, tell me some lies
Give me no reasons, give me alibis
Tell me you love me and don't let me cry
Say anything but don't say goodbye
I didn't mean to treat you bad
Didn't know just what I had
But honey now I do

And don't it make my brown eyes,
don't it make my brown eyes
Don't it make my brown eyes blue.
