Via The Portuguese Water Blog I've just visited a new blog, The Teacher's Pets and had a laugh at a photo gallery of dogs' ears to accompany the lyrics of one of my favorite old children's songs, Do Your Ears Hang Low?
I thought there was only one verse, but there are lots. And at least two versions.
I got to thinking about ears. Here are the ears of Scruffy, our Tuesday visitor who is sitting near my computer:

They can fly with her.
And, momentarily, just after grooming, they can look elegant. (And show she isn't too happy about the grooming!)
