Where I Betray My Dog


Hi Gang, today's post is just a silly betrayal of my doggy-buddy as I reveal one of her odd quirks. You and I have bad hair days every once in a while, right? Layla has a bad EAR day every once in a while. Normally her ears hang down sweetly, as pictured above. 

But sometimes one of her ears has a tendency to flip straight out to the side and just stay there. Hubs calls her the Flying Nun when this happens. (Many of you are too young to know that reference.)  It is always that same ear. I recently wrote a parenting article advising parents to refrain from shaming their kids online and telling embarrassing stories about them, but Layla is not my kid and I never let her read Recovering Church Lady anyway. 




"Please stop taking pics of me on my "Bad Ear Day."

  1. Susie...you are the Kathie Lee Gifford of the blogging community (when she used to host Live With Regis and Kathie Lee, she would constantly tell outrageous tales about her kids to the audience). LOL! Layla is a beautiful dog, bad ear day or not.

    And I am among those who are old enough to remember well Sr. Bertrille from the Convent San Tanco. I aspired to be her when I grew up. Stop laughing, Susie. ;)

  2. I think Layla can hear what you are saying on her bad ear day...she has a keen sense of hearing and knows which keys on the computer you are stroking as you talk about her! LOL!!! Poor baby! She can't help it...she's just too cute. Thanks for making us smile. And yes, I am old enough to remember the Flying Nun, although I was actually too old at the time to appreciate it as much as you youngsters! LOL

    1. You may be on to something here Pam. But I think if she was smart enough to figure out my key tapping, she'd also figure out how to cook herself the dinners of her dreams! Thanks for coming by friend!

  3. Poor Layla. Our now gone big lug, Jackson, was half yellow lab, half white German Shepherd. Most of the time, his ears lay down. But now and then, one would stand straight up. Every time that happened, my son would say, "Um, excuse me, Jackson, do you have a question?"
    By the way, I never tell stories about my kids that I haven't cleared with them first (of course, my kids are in their mid-twenties and perfectly able to say yay or nay to such things).

    1. Ha! Your son is funny! No, I've never read you say negative things about your family. It is not your style at all. But having older "kids" still makes me wonder how much to say or not say. I usually choose to not write about them, but they sure do give me some great material!

  4. Awww...Layla is cute. She's just keeping an ear out for the latest gossip, or what everybody's saying about her behind her back. She may not be able to read your blog, but she knows shame when she hears it. ;)

    My dog Buster does the same thing...sleeps with one ear perked right up, like a dish antenna. He'll be snoring, but the slightest noise, he's up and at 'em.

    1. Hi Mike, yes she is a cutie. Her hearing is pretty crazy. I watch her keep track of every sound as other people make noise in other rooms. I can almost see her picturing where they are and what they are doing. Funny animals huh?

  5. When you talked of betraying Layla, I though you had been out with another dog. But, no such disaster. This is good.

    Have you ever talked to a vet about that strange ear situation? It might be nothing, but if you have her in for something else, it might not hurt to inquire.

    Blessings and Bear hugs to both of you!

  6. This is so cute. My son's new puppy has funky ears. They're supposed to stand straight up like a German Shepherd but he has just enough Great Pyrenees in him that they kind of flop or stand straight up or go flat on the back of his head depending on his mood! We call them his emotional barometer! :)
