The poodle in our adorable doodle has a genetic inclination to hairy undersides of ears that can lead to bacteria growth and ear infections if not removed regularly. Rather than pay the vet to do it, we have learned to pluck our furbaby’s ears every few weeks of this troublesome hair.
We learned of this necessity the hard way. We only had had him a few weeks before we noticed a rancid smell coming from his ears. A visit to the vet and over a hundred dollars later, we realized that to prevent such events from recurring more invasive measures must be taken. Of course, you can imagine what a challenge it is to have him hold still and allow us to pull his ear hair out. He is awfully sweet and has slowly grown accustomed to such torture. I realized as we were going through our bi-monthly ritual that this would be the perfect image to capture for our theme of the day.
