Haven't thought about ear glueing and taping in a while. I forgot to post up pics of Jones' ears and how they turned out.
This is what his ears where like. (I know not bad, but I really didn't want his ears to not be symmetrical.
I tried eyelash glue (it was really difficult for me to find without the eyelashes). I was not too fond of it. It was difficult to get out of the tube and it felt funny and trying to hold Jones' ear and the tooth pick and get the stuff applied and pressed before it dried or Jones woke up was not a fun experience. And on top of that it only held for 2 days. I then had to wait for the glue to loosen up a bit, I used baby oil, without much luck, and ended up pulling off a lot of the hair from Jones' ears. He didn't fuss about it. I think this could have been what made the next glue application work better. For my second attempt I used fabric glue (it's non-toxic and cheap). I waited for Jones to go to sleep, and squeezed a pea size amount onto my finger and applied at to the bell part of the back of his ear. I made sure I had it all over where the ear would fold back. I gave it about 10 seconds or so to get tacky, then pressed the fold together. I held it for about 20 seconds and then put glue on the inside flap of Jones's ear. To hold the shape, his ears looked a little like Princes Amadalas hair. Rofl! Jones slept through this whole thing. And when he had woken he shook his head a bit, but that glue was NOT going anywhere. Don't let the glue get wet for the 10 days you have it on. Jones is an indoor dog so it was not difficult. The glue will come apart by itself. I left it on until it was pretty loose in his fur, then I pulled it off like a bandaid.
This is Jones after I glued his ears. (This was the eyelash glue)
This picture was from the following weekend. You can see better where the folds in his ear are.
I glued them again after we got home that day.
Over the last 2 weeks or so his ears have been swapping between being button and being rose. But that's usually when Jones is doing zoomies or being a terrorist. But the seem to always settle back to rose.
