Today Teddy is a Man

14 Dec

Teddy the Yorkie got his first haircut today!!! Have you ever seen a Yorkie with floppy ears? Believe it or not, Teddy had VERY VERY floppy ears when his mom first got him. Through careful guidance with his breeder, Teddy’s mom used masking tape to tape up teddy’s ears (much like they do with cropped Dobermans, Danes, and to create the signature “Sheltie-fold” on Shetlands). We’ve also kepts Teddy’s ears shaved completely from the base up so NO extra weight could keep his delicate baby cartilage from growing strong.

Today Teddy’s ears stand high and firm, and adorable aren’t they? I never would have guessed that ears as floppy as his were could ever stand up. I am so happy to be proven wrong!
