melbrod Oh dear—the butterfly's legs in that first picture make me itchy I think somehow the legs and face in that pic look sorta mosquito-ey.

But I love looking at the hairs on insects—it's something you don't typically get to see when they're out there at a distance and zipping around.

Though I do remember the time I pushed my way through the hedge behind our house (I was a kid then, what can I say) and bumped my head into a big wasp nest hidden in the leaves. I was stung five times before I got far enough away (and I was booking it) that they quit chasing me and went back to their nest. The first one gave me a mighty sting right next to my eye. I vividly remember seeing this very fuzzy thing up close and personal. Blurry, but furry.

TNfisher I took the whole day off today because I had no idea how long Mocha would be at the vet's, so just in case they found something and she had to have surgery I wanted to be there...well, once we came home, I needed to unwind some so I went out back and took a few pics.

"How do you tell when they're done?"

And basically, because there are so many variables that come into play when posting cropped ears (like who cropped them, style, length, cartilage and persistence of posting--the answer has remained the same--"When they're done..."

Considering that I've had everything from the puppy with an extremely long show crop whose ears stood perfectly and permanently after two posting (which meant his ear posting was finished at 3.5 months. To the dog who had one standing ear at 4 months and one that took another 18 months before it stood permanently I don't even try to guess any more.

If I'm posting ears for someone we go from posting to posting and when I think they are done the owner goes home with instructions about taking the ears down first thing in the morning and seeing if they wilt at all through the day--and if they survive the first night down--rinse and repeat--at any sign of floppiness they get reposted. Until they don't need to be reposted.

If the owner is doing the posting they send me pictures or bring the puppy around to see me on a day that they are going to take the ears down and repost--I look at the ears out of posts and either say, "Needs more posting." or "He's done!"

There just isn't a good formula for how long it takes. If you think of one let me know.

Hey, but I know a certain unnamed person, who is currently "under utilized" (PC for unemployed), that might be able to help.

This person would be available after finishing up washing dishes.
Farm help IS so hard to find

StrykersPerson Finding a reputable breeder and a vet that will do ears is hard to find around here.

Unless you all could give me some leads.

I am going to have to vacate my own thread to get away from the puppy fever!

I went over to him and he was feet down on floor, but couldn't get up, as I think he was sound asleep when incident happened. Later, I checked my front door and patio cameras for loud sounds in neighborhood, but all was silent, except for sounds of his nails scurrying on the tile. Spock will sometimes leap out of bed, even in dead of night, when he hears the cats going at it (rare here) in our yard or a firework going off, then bark to awake everyone. (doin' his job)

I helped him up to his feet and his ears were back and he had a "deer in the headlights" scared look on his face. My first thought was that he's experiencing a seizure of some sort? I fed him a few pieces of kibble and he ate them. He then walked over to cling to his mommy (DW) for consolation. As I went to use our bathroom, I slipped on large pee puddle from Spock at foot of bed. He must have been so scared, he relieved himself after getting up. He only has done that before when a lightning bolt struck very close to house. (lightning plus thunder together)

I had him walk around house, with me and his legs appear normal, no apparent injuries, except to his pride. Maybe he was dreaming about jumping off our upstairs porch after a squirrel? He dreams a lot and kicks me with his legs while "running". Brought in the good Kirkland dog bed to bedroom for him to finish sleep on, maybe he'd be scared to sleep on bed again? Comforted him for a short while and he petted me back, as gently as he could with his humongous Dobe paws.

It was then I thought, oh boy, it's going to be very tough when this one finally departs us... Recently, I believed that Eva, with all her leg and health problems would be the first to go. Spock still has the health, energy and spirit he did as a 2 y/o puppy. I am just so thankful they both made it past 10 years old with us and any time from here on, is a bonus!


Oh yeah....10 minutes after we finally all went to sleep again, Mr. Spock jumps right back up on the bed and laid down his head on kiddie pillow to sleep. Dobes love their routine...

FYI: Yes, that's where the phrase: "Scared the pi$$ out of him!" originates from.

I wonder what he was dreaming about?

Went to look at your test link and saw a staircase pic w/6 views. Link working good.

Obviously, if you are striving for more views, you'll need to add a couple sure-fire components to your next picture/video...

These could be a cat doing something crazy and an attractive girl, in yoga outfit, like the next Imgur post linked from your page (32K views)!

More Crazy Cat Antics for AB, Lannie & Mel...

Beaumont67 We like Hellman's Mayonnaise on toasted BLT's with Pemeal Canadian bacon.
- or a toasted chicken sandwich, with tomato and lettuce

I get Hot Course Honey Mustard @ a local Bee farm...real good stuff.
- think be spelled "Coarse", Mrs67 thinks

And we would love to try...Duke's Mayonnaise / have to look for it, @ Keoger's.
- if its good enough for John Wayne / it good enough, for the Beau
