    ready to tape

    it's been such a long time - wish me luck, LOL.





    They're about 5 1/2 inches long so should be a good length when he's all growed up....

    I just know that when Ive started to tape too early, I end up with bad sores.

    Good Luck!
    They are completely healed, no raw spots - even the guy who did his crop comented he couldn't believe how healed he was. Use Fura Zone on your next crop, the stuff is amazing. The bell is all healed up today.

    LOL - we'll get through this. I went through that when I was hoping to get Stewie's ears to stand - I was frustrated beyond belief.

    Well, have fun for the next bit of time!! Brings back memories!! Have to admit, he is one good looking puppy. You must have done something great (oh, that would be finding Stewie his perfect home!).

    You can keep the cup with the coat for memories of old times. LOL.

    That was his second cup & it wasn't bothering him, just had to take it down 'cause his ears grew & there was a huge space from cup to head, LOL

    Thanks. I'm not posting into the bell, so he should be fine. The scab on the side fell off, the edges are clean/healed. It's the weirdest thing, but his ears must have grown overnight - the cup which fit, was able to lift up a good 3/4 inch - totally weird.

    LOL he's not scared - he's a very serious looking pup.

    I'm not doing his ears 'til tonight anyway, so nothing to fear.
