O.K. i really like the cropped ear look but our vets are not allowed to do it,
so i went to a website that explained how to do it ,and being a first aider and stuff i did Ambers ears and taped them up now waiting for when they stand proud on their own!!I used really sharp scissors and the half bottle of whisky she drank numbed the pain!!

I know the first taping looks rough but it will improve with practice i'm sure!!

Yeah, the first taping's the toughest.

It's great to see Amber showing some solidarity with her American cousins!

The one mistake I see (through all that tape - LOL) is that you have them taped too tight towards each other - that will create "pockets". You want them pointing straight up, but most definitely NOT towards each other. You need to stretch them up when taping, and I'd rather see a little play in the brace so that they are looser.
Yes, practice practice practice.

Haha!!!! You got me for sure! so are her ears still uncropped? lol underneath that tape is just her normal ears?!!! lol I didnt respond to this post cause I wasnt sure how to react...lol THATS SO FUNNY!
I would play a prank on people...but I cant hold the joke for too long cause I'll feel bad...or guilty or think people will take it TOO serious...or think Im crazy...so whenever I joke Im one of those that have to say "Im just kidding" like 2 seconds after lol. You did good Brum!

Ok, you got me :)

I posted that early this morning and sure was not quite awake yet - LOL! I'm so used to giving posting advice, that I did not even think about you being in the UK.... geez what a sucker I am sometimes!!

The time changes tonight, and I've got a show tomorrow that is at least a 2 hour drive. Dobes are on at 9am, and I've got to get there way early because Louise gets carsick and needs an hour to get back up to speed. So....it will feel like around 4 am when I get up at 5am tomorrow. I'm going to need a mega sized coffee from the nearest coffee shop before I get on the highway! I love dog shows...it is the only thing I would get up for that early!!

Thanks! I'm actually trying to make it less confusing by giving each dog their own picture page.... it is a work in progress and probably very confusing right now. I need to do two more pages and then I will delete the mish mash photo page. I am totally non-techie so it takes a long time to figure stuff out.
