She's Keeping It!

Notice the slightly punk rocker look that Cora is sporting these days? Sort of a sideways mohawk.

The vet shaved the poor bitten ear in order to set the myriad of stitches he had to use to put it back together after the pitbull attack. There was serious doubt about whether or not the stitches would work or they'd have to amputate the fleshy part of her ear.

The hair is growing back slowly but the good news is that the vet's magic with the ear worked - when the stitches came out last week, he pronounced that she would keep it. We are thrilled and she seems happy, too. It may sit at a slightly rakish angle but we are pleased that she will still have two ears to fondle.

Happy ending, once the mohawk grows out.

Good news.
Props to the doc, to the dog, and to her people.

Oh yay, 2 ears to fondle is always better than 1, more symetrical.

I am so glad to hear this - Cora is just the most delightful and sweetest dog. She deserves having two ears to fondle! Is she still going for the doggie version of the Sarah Bernhart school of overacting woe?

Cookiecrumb, a howling success!

Morgan, yes, but we'd have loved her even if she was lopsided.

Nancy, she was awarded an honorary Oscar by the Academy. She had the good sense, however, to make just a short speech to thank her vet.
