Also, most people on the street don't even realize that dobes do not "come" with ears standing.......they don't even know that they must be cropped! I explained it quite a few times, then just starting saying they were being trained to stand so I didn't have to feel like a broken record, hehehehe
Yea I had to tell my boyfriend they didnt come like that either. he though all cropped dogs came like that (dobes, pits, great danes ect) Thats why he wants a rotti now, he doesnt want to have to crop the dobes ears. lol. I told him you dont have to, its a choice, but if you want to show you would have to. I loe the look of a good crop. Most people just think dogs come as they are, most collie ears have to be trained to "tip" I never botherd with it just becuase he is a pet store dog and wouldnt be shown ever any way. But we did do it to the childhood collie we had.
I know what you mean witht he bandages. At the dog park when I walk with diseal many people stop and ask what happened to him. Did he have a accident? Did a dog chew his ears up? then while the owner and I explain they are cropped, you get wierd stares like "huh? I thought they just came "tipped" then offcourse some people go on and on about how cruel it is.
