33. My lab mix Lienie (who died in '10) was the ear cleaner

He would clean our other lab mix's ear so thoroughly! At first she was uncomfortable with the tongue in the ear, but soon she loved it and would plop down in front of him as if to say "time to clean my ears" becuase she would trade positions so he could get her other ear. For 9 yrs he cleaned her ears - because she has floppy ears, they are more prone to dirt and infections - never a problem. 6 months after he died she got her first ear infection, so now I have the job of ear cleaning. I am not as thorough, she doesn't like the ear wipes as much as his tongue lol.
