We could also note that, in fact, it was the gloomy Eeyore who guessed right about his tail - someone had indeed taken it, and so his pessimistic outlook was in fact the most realistic outlook.
Pooh assumes the best; Eeyore the worst. Owl is very surprised to hear that Pooh has not read his signs, and invites Pooh to have a look now. Here it is now. So Pooh picks up the bell-pull and takes it back to its rightful owner, and Christopher Robin helps out by nailing the tail back onto Eeyore.
Eeyore, on the other hand, immediately assumes that someone has deliberately taken his tail - stolen it, even - which would be far worse than just dropping it somewhere. And Pooh is so happy to see this that he comes over a bit funny, and has to go home for a little Sustaining Snack.
It is worth noting that on previous occasions, when there has been some kind of problem or bother, it is Christopher Robin who has been sought, whereas on this occasion Pooh has gone straight to Owl. And he asks Pooh if he has read the signs.
So why is it Owl who is required on this occasion? And underneath the knocker is a notice that says: But who is right? This sounds a little painful, but Christopher Robin always knows what he is doing, so this must just be the usual way that tails are reattached to donkeys, and we should really pipe down.
Eeyore is an elderly, grey donkey, who lives alone in a rather thistly corner of the forest - although this is not as bad as it sounds, as thistles are rather tasty if you are a donkey. If we look at the previous occasions, Christopher Robin was needed to supply a balloon in chapter one, to help Pooh come unstuck from the Rabbit hole in chapter two, and for comfort in chapter three in the face of numerous Woozles.
Once the tail is reattached, Eeyore is transformed from a gloomy, sad old donkey into a frisky, frolicking donkey, waving his tail happily and jumping around in the forest.
For some time now Pooh had been saying "Yes" and "No" in turn, with his eyes shut, to all that Owl was saying, and having said "Yes, yes" last time, he said "No, not at all" now, without really knowing what Owl was talking about.
Pooh reads both of these notices, left to right and then back the other way, and then knocks and pulls the knocker, pulls and knocks the bell-rope, and shouts out to Owl as well, just to cover all his bases. Yes, it definitely reminds him of something, so he asks Owl where he got it.
Owl comes out of his house, and Pooh lets him know what has been occurring and that Eeyore is bereft without his tail. They move on from this impasse when Owl bellows "A Reward!
Owl says that he just found it in the forest, hanging above a bush, and he had rung it to see if it belonged to someone, but there was no reply, and then it came off in his hand, so he took it home. But perhaps that is a Special Arrangement that Owl has with someone that we should try not to interfere with.
The something large makes Pooh daydream about condensed milk and honey, but Owl is still focused on his plan, and he starts to explain the plan in greater detail, going on and on and on, and using bigger and bigger words, until he finds himself right at the beginning of the plan again, with the bit about writing out a note.
This last exchange is very interesting because it clearly illustrates the different outlooks of Pooh and Eeyore. Pooh informs Owl that he has made a Mistake, and in fact the bell-pull did belong to someone, and that someone was Eeyore, who was rather fond of it - attached to it, even.Eeyore Loses a Tail (Winnie-the-Pooh) [A.
