I've mentioned this before, but my dogs eat raw. They also continually get blood on their ears as when they reach into the bowl for a new piece, they dip them in the blood and brush over bloody pieces of meat. (Have I grossed out everyone yet?) Anyway, this always really bothered and was such a mess to clean every time. Today, I finally got the idea to use socks. I got a pair of really stretchy socks that I never liked anyway and cut them to make tubes...a long one for Noodle and a short one for Cookie. Then I just slipped them over their heads in such a manner as to hold back their ears. It worked great!! They just got finished eating and their ears are just as white as when they started! Now, if I could just figure out how to keep the blood stains off their mouths....
Oh, and once Cookie was finished eating, she managed to play around with the ear tube until she had it worked down to her neck. So, she has discovered an easy way to provide neck warmers in the winter! All I have to do is buy a nice, pretty, stretchy kind of sock and cut the toe off and voila~! -_- The smilie is me looking modest about all this.
Goodness.... all that blood talk .... is there a "grossed out" smilie?!! I've been a vegetarian for about 30 years so raw meat is a total gross-out I bet your dogs do love it, though, but for me..... yukky!!!
