    Hi,*New England Neighbor* ~

    Please let me know what brand of glue you especially like for your darling Minnie's ears?

    My breeder uses TEAR·MEND and although that works really well, it's a very thin liquid and I would prefer a thicker consistency.

    ~ And please give your precious little Minnie a kiss between her soft brown eyes for me!

    Thank You ~

    Hi Rebecca, I had the same issue when I was using that same glue on Liam's ears! I would just spread some glue on a paper plate and left it out for a 1/2 to an hour and some evaporation took place and it was firmer in consistency and not nearly as runny. It worked for me.

    :smile2: I dearly thank you for your tried·and·true helpful hint, Gloria!

    My 5 month old
    Bryn is a little
    *squiggle bug* so hopefully, her ears will not need to be redone for a while.

    Warmly,

    Rebecca

    Welcome! We need pics of your dogs! I like tear mender, it holds really well. I find gluing Minnie's ears fairly easy.

    So, you are using TEAR·MENDER too.

    I agree that it holds really well ...
    it even withstands my 5 month old Bryn's rough·housing with Devon, her 5 year old Sheltie sister!

    Warmly,
    Rebecca

    :joyful: PS Karen ~

    I just realized that your precious Minnie is one of Jody's puppies ~ Topaz and Keeper's baby!

    :happy: Jody is a dear friend of mine.

    Warmly,
    Rebecca

    Oh!!!! You know her dogs! I feel so lucky to have Minnie from Topaz and Keeper! I had read about them on her blog and saw them on her website and I knew the puppies would have wonderful temperaments and that they would be beautiful! I loved those dogs when I met them. I wish I lived closer, I would visit. I have to see her when Minnie gets older, Minnie was her favorite!
