It is a Snood

Me: “Bentley, look at what I ordered for you!  It’s a snood!”
Bentley: “A what?”
Me: “A snood is a covering for your neck, head and those long ears.”
Bentley: “I don’t get it.”
Me: “It fits around your head to protect your ears from sloppy eating or being dragged through the mud.”
Bentley: “I fear the only thing that will be dragged through the mud is my masculinity if I wear this!”
Me: “Don’t be ridiculous. They are unisex and I didn’t order girly prints.  Look, this one has a sun visor.  How cool is that?”
Bentley: “I do look rather adorable in it.  I’ll consider it. I do loathe having crusty tips on my ears.  It’s a real turn-off for the babes.”

Me: “How about this camouflage snood? You look like a cool snood dude for sure!”
Bentley: “Don’t go there, Mom.  Everyone knows if your mom thinks it’s cool, it’s probably not. Hey, can I hide out in the yard and catch squirrels with this camo snood?  Do you still have that slingshot?”

Me: “You are not allowed to use my slingshot. You’ll shoot your eye out! I have to be watching you when you’re wearing a snood. It could slip over your eyes where you couldn’t see or you could also catch it on something.  They aren’t to wear all of the time, but they sure do come in handy before a photo shoot!”
Bentley: “I can slide one on before going to the vet or where I want to have clean ears when we arrive.  They are protected from drool, too.
Me: “If you have a long-eared breed, you might consider a snood. There are many places to order them or you can make them yourself. I ordered these great snoods from Howlin’ Hounds.

  6. My long floppys are into everything too, but we have learned to deal with it over the years. I think the camo snood is the better choice for you.

  11. Oh my, that first photo. Gah. His face! I'm so glad I have a breed that doesn't require those. When we were little kids, we would use clothespins to hold the dog's ears back. Just the hair, not on the actual ear. :-)

  12. Lol! I've never heard of a snood before, but it makes a lot of sense for those long ears! My vote goes for the camo version!

  17. "I fear the only thing that will be drug through the mud is my masculinity if I wear this!" LOL
    It's not the coolest looking thing that's for sure.

  18. I've never heard of this before, but minutes prior to reading this post, I just wiped Jax's ears because he got food on the tips during breakfast LOL I might have to look into one of these....

  19. This is unbelievably cute. I think you have lots of friends who could benefit from this device!

  20. Bentley you really don't look too happy wearing those. Our mom thinks they look cute on you and are very practical for such a long eared pup like yourself. We don't have those problems.

  21. Bentley, you look like a yente! We think you might have a point about the chicks not diggin it!

    Your Pals,

  22. Adorable mom think. Me: It's not for a masculine super dog :)

  23. We think you look adorable, Bentley! But then we are just a little bit biased. ;)
    Thanks so much for featuring us today, MK!

  25. You look adorable Bentley! Meowm needed one of these when she had her Basset, she loved licking the plate after humans having pancakes......yep her ears were a syrupy mess afterwards.

  26. These things are a genius design, no? We had spaniels before and they are so nice to keep their ears clean. The long hair just got tangled with all sorts of food.

  27. Thank dogness my ears are pointy. Don't go giving my pawrents ideas. I prefer to be naked myself. I find that if you keep still like a statue, they eventually remove anything they try to make you wear. Apart from the harness. I lost that battle!

  28. OMD mom is ROTFLOL!!!! The camo one, oh no! Is he really going to let you get away with this? Taffy's beautiful white fluffy ears are all dingy and crusty too, drives mom nuts. She's seen the ties that you can use but we are going to go check out the web site. Did you ever get your long-eared bowl from 4Paws Pottery? Love Dolly

  29. You look like our grandma

  30. Oh. Your Mom is even more awful and embarrassing as ours!!! We wished she hadn't read this post, but she really likes the snood!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you for sharing this post and company with us! Well...MOM thanks you, anyway. She's been thinking of ordering me a snood to keep my ears out of my food at dinner time, but hasn't convinced herself of it yet (right now she just pony-tails my ears above my head). BUT now that she sees how dashing Bently looks...

  32. Bentley looks so cute! I never heard of these...but I like the idea. The tips of Cricket's ears are always so dirty!

  33. Snoods can be really helpful and these are really handsome!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Those snoods are really cute on Bentley! It sounds like they are really helpful too. Less dirt and grime on the ears means less ear infections.
