What a Crybaby, Part 2

Our first video of Owen! You might want to shove a cotton ball or two in your ears before listening -- he's hitting an octave that sopranos can only dream of.

That is so unbelievably cute. <3

Bet it gets a "little" annoying after a while though... ;-)

Ya think?

Adam said...

Also, is that how you say goodbye to your fella?

"Go."

I'm shocked, Mel! Shocked!


Adam

Melanie Avila said...

:P

I'd already had my goodbye kiss.

Adam said...

Ah, so you had no further use for him.

;-)

Melanie Avila said...

He was just tormenting the dog at that point. He does that a lot. Some days it's like I'm training both of them.

"Owen, no bite."

"Ibis, stop teasing him."

...and so on.

Adam said...

I suggest locking them in a cage and leaving them to it.

You could bet on the outcome. ;)

(Ok, I'll stop filling yer comments with sillies now)

Melanie Avila said...

But I like the sillies!

I have had to separate them a couple times -- each in their own corner.

Adam said...

Well in that case... ;-)

I get the feeling Owen wouldn't stay in his corner long. Puppies are sneaky like that. :D

(It's why we loves 'em!)

Melanie Avila said...

You, sir, are a very wise man.

Natasha Fondren said...

Hah! That's funny. I'm like that with food. I tell Ittle Bittle to get down, and then I have to tell Glenn not to offer it to him.

I had to watch it again. I'm head over heels in love with Owen.

Melanie Avila said...

Natasha, same here. He's getting better about not biting -- or at least he knows he's not supposed to -- but Ibis plays with him where he taunts him to bite. *sigh* Then I have to yell at both of them. ;)

Aimless Writer said...

Oh he's so cute! Send him to New Jersey, I'll keep him company.

I have another tip: get a kong and stuff it with peanut butter and dog bones. Give it to him as you're walking out the door. It will keep him busy for a while and he'll associate your leaving with goodies.

I played the video while sitting next to my dogs on the couch. They are still howling. I don't know if they feel bad for Owen, or he hurt their ears.

Melanie Avila said...

Aimless, we have a kong, I just haven't put anything in it yet. But that's a good idea about treats when we leave, thanks!

Robin, maybe his tale is SO SAD that it made them cry...

Erica said...

Aw. That is so cute. Wow- he does get that voice of his way up there. I was a first soprano in choir and I didn't even hit that note!

You guys are funny!

I especially loved his ears flopping.

Melanie Avila said...

Erica, he hurts my ears! The couple days that I had a migraine I thought I was going to have to strangle him.

Gypsy, that's my favorite part. :)

ac said...

Well, I teared up. Yep, I'm a sucka. I felt bad for Owen.

Melanie Avila said...

AC, he sounds like his heart is breaking!
