When I adopted Petey over a year ago he had very full ears. His body was thin and he had no teeth and cataracts and very short hair as it was growing back, but his ears were beautiful. Over time however the one thing that has changed about Petey the most are his ears.
At about the three month mark living with me I noticed his ears standing up. He would raise them with great expression and cock his head. He could make one ear pop up or both.
Petey is now twelve and a half years old and his ears are losing all their hair. He will have bald ears very soon and look like a little Yoda
Everyone seems to comment on his ears the most – not his crooked smirk or beautiful body hair or soulfully pensive eyes.
It’s his ears that seem to endear people to him.
They will soon be totally bald and he will look like no other dog.
But he will still be our sweet precious Petey.
