What happened to the Bear’s left eye?
Kingsley happened to the Bear’s left eye.
A few years ago Kingsley wanted attention and I was ignoring him. He had been fed, walked and should have been napping. Instead he was pacing, whining and getting into stuff he shouldn’t. Basically driving me crazy. I tried to put him down for a nap (there are an alarming number of similarities between owning a basset and having a three year old) but he just kept getting up. So I ignored him, hoping he would realize he was tired and settle down. Next thing I knew he barked and when I looked up he had poor old Bear pinned, then he looked right at me and ripped the Bear’s eye out. That got my attention. The whole episode ended with Kingsley sulking in his kennel, with me clutching the Bear asking if he was okay (I do know he’s not real, really I do). Kingsley spent the next hour giving me the evil basset eye from his kennel.
We made up later that afternoon but now the Bear likes to keep an eye on him.
