Well Piffle!

So we went and saw Aunt Barb today about my ear.  Not such good news.  It's not healing.   So on Monday I am going back to see her and have the part of my ear that hasn't healed cut off.  So I'll have a long ear on one side and a short ear on the other.    :-(

Mom is pretty sad about this, but she also wants me to be able to live with out this silly lampshade on my head any longer than we have to.

We tried to let it heal on it's own for 5+ weeks and it's just not working so this is the route we have to go. 

Thanks for all the crossed paws and fingers we appreciate it.  After my tail I don't think mom is all that surprised I didn't heal well but it still stinks!

So I'll be looking at you like this for a couple more weeks.



  1. Piffle and sniffle. So sorry to hear this, but you can't keep letting it not heal. That could just lead to bigger problems. Besides, now you will have that distinguished look - no other pup will look the same. Hang in there, big guy, it will all be better soon.

    Wiggles & WAgs,

  8. Oh, Boomer, I'm so sorry. It's the best way to go at this point and you should be feeling better pretty soon, I hope, but I'm still sorry. You will be totally unique if that's any comfort, but I suppose it isn't really.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  9. Boomer, I'm so sorry! I hope the surgery goes well and you're cone free soon! We have our paws crossed for you!


  10. Boomer!
    Oh-oh! I am so sorry to know your ear is not healing like it should.
    I will have my paws crossed for you. I am sure everything will go fine and you will get rid of that cone soon!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  11. Hiya Boomer - oh, we're so sorry to hear this about your ear. JD - speaking from within a lampshade himself - especially feels your pain! He was most impressed at how bashed about your cone looks - he says that's a sure sign that you're not letting it slow you down - way to go!!

    We reckon that sporting a slightly lopsided look is gonna make you look SO cool! Humans just don't understand these things and seem to get upset about them - sigh! We hope your mom come to terms with it - after all, you need that nastiness gone from your ear and you all gave it your best shot to let it heal. It obviously wasn't meant to be, so it's on to plan B!!

    Big schnauzer snuggles to you all - and please give your mom a wet-nosed-smooch from us and tell her everything's gonna be okay! JD and Max.

  12. Oh Boomer!!! I'm sooo so sorry to ready of this I hope you heal quickly from the surgery!!!

  13. Boomer,

    Not to worry about the lopsided look... it's all the rage right now... mom has her hairs cut like that, short on one side, longer on the other... Everybody says she looks great so we know you will too!

    PeeS. Mom also got some of her hairs dyed orange... maybe you coud do that to part of one of your ears? Just a thought...

  14. We're sorry to hear this, but we're glad you're doing better and you'll be able to get the cone off. I think you might get used to it soon, and it will give you more character. It worked for Van Gogh.

  15. sorry to hear
    lot of hughies

  16. Piffle is right...we think your ears going to most handsome and unique and that you should show them off once your boo boo heals.
