Mirth Watch Thursday: Best Dog Body Part

What's the best part of a dog? Is it his/her tail, since that's how your pup shows love? Is it the nose - so perfect for planting kisses on? While those dog-parts are pretty great, I personally think the best part of a dog is it's ears!

Whether floppy...

Or pointed...

Or a bit of both...
Beautiful angel Abby
... they are just so darn expressive, plus there is the added benefit of being able to scritch them. Rita loves a good ear scritching. And the softest spot on her is the downy hair right behind her ear. A very kissable spot.

Now, if your dog has the right type of ears, you can also amuse yourself with them. Here, I demonstrate in some old pics of me and my sis's (oh-so-tolerant) beagle, angel Casanova:

Cas as Mozart

Cas as the Easter Bunny
 And the ever-popular, Cas as Princess Leia


And now for your viewing pleasure, a cute video involving - what else - ears!


Do you agree? Are your pup's ears your fave part?

    1. Oh, that reminds me... the vet told me to start cleaning Rita's ears. Did it once... She wasn't a fan!

  2. What a nice treat seeing my sweet angel dogs, Lou & Cass, featured. Dog ears are "huge" in our household right now as we work to get Reggie's standing upright. I do love his ears, with that oh-so-soft, smoky-colored fluff behind them. Very kissable.

    1. When we got her, I wondered if they would stand up (I didn't realize at the time that she was already past the age where they turn up). I'm glad they're floppy, cuz they're so cute that way!

  6. Ears are great, as is every inch of each one of the pack! All the pack have stand up ears but different thickness.

    Last night, I would have said that my least favorite part was feet. Specifically Forest's as he kept putting them in my face. (he was sleeping across the pillow...maybe he's spoiled?)

    1. Feet are fun too - but not in the face! Being spoiled is no less than they deserve!

  10. Gizmo's ears are like punctuation marks...he's got the "2 ears down" the "2 ears up" and the mysterious "1 up and 1 down" which is my favorite...
