Grammar Note:
“Les chiens me suivent avec leurs yeux.”
Me‘ is a direct object pronoun:
Notice how pronouns go in front of the verb in French, but they go after the verb in English.

Leurs‘ is a possessive adjective.
LeurS‘ describes the word ‘yeux’ (eyes) and is plural because ‘yeux’ is in the plural, and adjectives need to agree with what they describe.

– – – –

Do people ever follow you with their eyes?

a)   Choose one of these:
une glace  = an ice-cream
un packet de chips  = a packet of crisps
une barre de chocolat  = a bar of chocolat

 b)  Choose two friends.

c)   Now say what you have and that those friends are following you with their eyes!
J’ai une pizza.  = I have a pizza
Paul et Marie-Alix me suivent avec leurs yeux!

(Paul and Marie-Alix follow me with their eyes!)

Suivre = to follow
Present tense:
(Note:  ‘je suis’ also means ‘I am’!)
