Something happened as I slept...

Somehow soft, cloth tape "mysteriously" appeared on the inside of my floppy ears!

Mommy says I look adorable. But I'm not so sure.

For someone who's a licensed hairdresser, her scissor skills are something to be desired. Did she cut that tape blindfolded and with her feet??!!
(I'm so embarrassed)

Even Gracie didn't recognize me! But when she did, I heard her giggle under her breath.

OMG! I hope Chesty doesn't see me like this!!
I'll be mortified!

Maybe I should wear a scarf? A sombrero? A beret? A 10 Gallon Hat? A Dolly Parton wig??

Ok what is it for?

Miss Earlene, some Boston Terriers need a little help to strengthen their ears when they don't stand up on their own. Mine needed some help so Mommy put some tape on them. I don't even know it's there, unless I look in the mirror.

Hey Stella, I had one ear that stayed limp unless I got excited about getting a treat until I became more mature as mommy says. If you get any ribbing from Gracie, tell her it is the new fashion trend in doggywood. Paws from Cooper the Corgi ♥

Thanks, Cooper!! My real mommy's ears are floppy but I'm hoping mine won't be. My human Mommy took the tape off last night, but I want it back on!
She said she'll put it back on over the weekend.

Good Morning! I went to the vet and went to sleep and woke up with lots of my fur gone and my butt area kinda hurt a bit. What's a little tape? At least you still have all your fur!
Don't worry, your ears will be stiff soon enough...then you will look more like your sister, Gracie! Bet she didn't think about that when she giggled!

What happens if you don't strengthen the ears, will it cause problems?

Stella BostonTerrier said...

No fur on your butt??!! Yikes, Hooky!!!
Miss Mindy, us Bostons are known for our expressive eyes and perky ears. Also, floppy ears doesn't allow proper air circulation which can lead to ear problems for me. :(
