Wally’s Great Adventures (36).

hello friends, wally here. major major trauma around here.  dad asked mom what is going on with my ears, and why are they bending backwards, and that this is more evidence that i am not show quality, and why we got me on sale like stale bread. i didn’t understand all that, and he went on ranting about finding one defect a week. mom googled bendy ears and she found that it was normal esp around teething time. mom is so smart, as i have lost so many teeth this week. dad said this was total nonsense and asked mom if she believed everything she read on the internet and asked mom if her ears were bendy when she was losing her teeth when she was a baby. mom walked away and mumbled something about not engaging with the ignorant. dad told me that is what happens when i hang around mom so much and get babied, everything is bending backwards. Dad said i better start moving my ears back where they belong or he will tape them back with hockey tape to get them right. so i have a lot of work to do, will keep you posted.. have a great week. Wally.

  1. Wow! I’ve learned something new. It will be interesting to see if the ears bend back when the adult teeth come in.

  2. Hi Wally. Humans often “talk tough” and then don’t follow up with action! This is called “bluffing”. It’s the way humans try to control your behavior. Most of the time you can ignore it because humans talk a lot but rarely act! Mom and Dad love you so much they would never hurt you. That means you have them wrapped around your little paws and can do almost anything you want (almost…don’t push your luck!). Your ears are fine! Find that hockey tape and hide it…maybe under your toys. You are already 14 lbs! In a few months you will be bigger, stronger, have bigger and sharper teeth, AND be able to bark even louder! Then YOU can do some bluffing! Trust me… It will be fun! :-).

  3. The things that get your dad all in a tizzy, Wally! I think your ears just add to your charm. And now I’m reminded of Zeke when he was a puppy. His ears came together at the top of his head until they straightened. All part of growing up. And then, he had one that always flopped a little because a boy broke it after my son told him not to touch… It just gave him a less fierce look.

  4. I wouldn’t worry about dad, mom’s got it all under control, you are so cute no matter what, and maybe bad can get a prissy stuffed animal and be a stage dad to that creature. ps – if you find his hockey tape, you know what to do with it.

  5. Hey little guy, tell dad that your ears are perked so you can hear him as clearly as possible…he won’t touch ‘em if he thinks that’s the case..😉

  6. Wow, Wally, you have got your hands full with that dad of yours! What a worry wart. My Dobes’ ear leather always got floppy when they were teething…they will return to normal. Tell Dad to listen to Mom…she’s clearly on top of things. And you are positively adorable, whatever direction your ears choose to go. ❤️

  8. Dear adorable Wally, we all know that you are doing the absolute best you can! probably not, but could your ears be bending because you’re trying extra hard to understand what dad wants from you?

  9. Wally, up here, I once saw a Corgi puppy with silver duct tape on his ears so they’d stand up after the floppy-ear puppy stage. Who knew?? So, hide the duct tape, TOO! 😂

  10. We have had a boxer and a German Shepherd in the distant past, both whose ears flopped before they stood up for good. Besides, Wally is such a sweet creature, didn’t you see this when you got him? A mere physical impediment would never get in the way of a loving interaction with any of our dogs!

  11. Good morning Wally! I hope your day is off to a good start… Magic awaits you as you continue this adventure called life! I envy you…your ability to live only in the present moment is such a gift. Forget the past… Don’t worry about the future… Just make the current moment wonderful!

    • (Continued…) don’t you love it when you hit “Send“ by mistake?? Thank goodness what I wrote above was acceptable! I wasn’t done. Think how lucky you are not to have to use a stupid computer! 🙂 Anyway, back to living in the present moment: humans can’t do this! They spend most of their time worrying about their past mistakes and about what the future will bring. You don’t have to worry about any of that… You Lucky Dog! (pun intended.)

      Anyway, the real reason I wrote this is that I have an idea! I think you should have your ears pierced! Hang some really obnoxious loud ugly earrings in those ears! That should get mom and dad grumbling! :-). Have a Great Day Buddy! -Paul, A.k.a. The Flying Lizard… A.k.a. “Liz”.

      PS: I want to share a secret with you! I sound like a human, but I’m not! I have a super power! I can switch between being a human and being a lizard whenever I want to. This gives me a unique perspective on life! We can have lots of cool “animal to animal“ discussions in the future which crazy humans will not understand fully (because they are always worrying about the past and the future)! Great fun, adventures, silliness, (and a bit of naughtiness!) Await both of us down the road!

      PPS: here’s a start for you: you should learn how to “play dead“. Roll over on your back, stick your four legs in the air, and hold your breath. Use this as a secret weapon when mom and dad are annoying you. It is guaranteed to freak them out!

      Cheers – Liz!
