Crazy Dog Mom?...guilty as charged

Ears



Okay, I admit it. I'm a crazy dog lover and my pampered pooches get nothing but the best. They eat premium dog food (Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul), they have fancy shampoo, they've tried every dog treat under the sun (greenies, freeze-dried chicken strips, frozen peanut butter kongs, frozen lowfat yogurt), they go to the best dog parks, and they have matching Coach collars and leashes.

When they go to restaurants or walk into a store, people stare, and I don't blame them. They're just beautiful...with one little exception. Their ears are floppy. And for purebred Samoyeds, this is a problem. Those ears should be upright...at attention. The problem is that they are sisters and they've grown up together and fought and played with each other since day one. And as part of their play-fighting, they like to bite each other's ears...so now the ligaments can't seem to hold their floppy ears upright.

I've considered cosmetic surgery for them, but that seems extreme. If anyone has any tips out there that don't involve invasive surgery, I would love to hear them...

How about leaving those ears alone?  They sound really cute!

I just looked at the photos.  What beautiful girls!   Their ears look just as cute as they are.  I'd leave them alone - they look like sweet teddy bears.

Hi Johnniee,

I don't think your dog is perverted. My previous dog, Missy, used to do this to our male dog, Thumpy. It's not a perverted or sexual act but more an act to show domination. I guess your chihuahua feels the need to be an alpha dog to your omega teddy bear. Perhaps she has a little pent-up aggression.

Oh, and my dogs are Samoyeds.
