    Default Scruffy Ears

    Please can anyone give me some advice about Rosie's ears.

    Here's a picture of Rosie seconds after I gave her a brush



    When I finished brushing her, her ears were looking really pretty and tidy. As soon as she got off my lap, she did her usual head to tail shake and her ears ended up looking 10 times worse than before I brushed them

    Her ears actually look better if I don't brush them, but they end up very tatty which is not good.

    Her ear hair is very thick, but flyaway, so is there something that I can use to either thin the hair or stop it being so flyaway?

    Here's another picture of her yesterday in the garden looking for her 'friend' - Sooty, the neighbours cat.



    (her left front slipper isn't shorter than the rest - she's just standing on it )

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I don't have any particular advice, I just wanted to say that she is absolutely gorgeous, scruffy ears or not! She's got about the most human looking sweet little face I have ever` seen on a dog. And her coat looks beautiful!

    Oh my gosh.....scruffy ears or not...that is the cutest little face!! I have no suggestions. As soon as I finish my guys, they're both a mess again But I laughed at you explaining that one foot feathering wasn't shorter than the other, she's just standing on it I had a foster with the longest ears I've ever seen. It was so funny to watch her walk when she was sniffing the ground, she kept stepping on her ears. Now those were some difficult ears to keep brushed or clean.

    Ours look like that as soon as they get up and shake their head once. I've wondered too...

    Barney is just the same! he looked like an abandoned dog just before we had him trimmed the other week, despite our best efforts! Its the same with some humans though isnt it. You could dress them in the most expensive designer gear and they'd still look scruffy!

    Dont worry my lot are just the same. I spend ages grooming them, put them down off the table and first thing they do is roll all over in their beds..result, worse than before grooming !
    Rosie is a sweet girl with or without groomed ears.
