Ear, Ear!

We Scotties have very long, very pointy ears, especially (I might add) when our hooman is predisposed to giving us a good trim when she has to, every now and again.

However, when we are iddlebiddle like the puppies were, then they are all floppy and hang down like this:

Ahh blisss

Dougal, Max and Little, Little girl!

But then, when we are about six or seven weeks old, they start to rise up, into a half-way-house, like this:


The picture above (and below) is of the puppy from our recent litter who became Max and he was the biggest puppy of the litter and therefore, slow to raise his ears. 

We have since heard that Max’s ears are now standing proud! (His new owners M and E sent over a picture to show, but she can’t remember how to move it from e mail to WordPress – she stoopid )

Me and Lucy


Just like ours!

  2. Our Mom has some hints on how to make they stand up quicker and one is to clip the hair from the upper half – it will stop it from weighting them down. We love to see those ears start to bloom!!

    It is pretty amazing that those tiny ears become the big bunny ears we have.

    Can you hear the pesky cats and squirrels approaching in the park?

    Hi Hector, Bonny and Lucy…gosh we are glad to hear from you and to see that you are doing well. Mom retired on April 1 and she lost some of the blog addresses she had so now we can bookmark you again.

    Lucy is adorable.
    Happy weekend,
    Madi and Mom
