I know a lot of breeds have their ears glued to train them to lay right...we always had to do it with our shelties and collies when I was growing up.
    They think it's cruel and serves no real purpose.

    Personally, I don't know how I feel. But recently, I was talking to the owner of one of Blues brothers, found out that my breeder glued the entire litters ears. For some reason, I don't remember if she told us or not.
    But I do remember there was a lot of goop that I couldn't get off.

    At 9 weeks old I took him to the vet (for a different reason) and found out he also had an ear infection. Now mind you, he is not prone to ear infections so yeah, I blame the glue and all the crap I went through to get it off.

    At the same time, I keep hearing that floppy ears are a breeding ground for infections. So rose ears are definitely better in that regard. But at the same time, some bulldogs are just prone to infections rose ear or not.

    Either way, I don't really have an opinion on it.

    Wow...personally I don't see any cruelty in it at all but I respect other opinions. Belle just had a tiny dab of glue and she never seemed to notice it. Now actually cropping ears is a different story but I've never seen any dog mind a bit of glue. I'm glad you told me though..I had no idea that it was controversial at all.

    Glue??? NOOOOO, we call that the Scooby Doo ear. Look for a groomer that you feel good about and your baby feels good about.

    I don't know... it's one thing to say: -"Aww, you lill fat adorable ball of fur". I accept from people when they obviously are saying it as a good thing, cos truthfully bulldogs are rounder than most breeds, fat or not If my vet or anyone else would just say: -"Bring the fat Bulldog", I would inform them that my bulldog isn't fat and I would give them the stinky eye.

    She doesn't look fat at all and she probably isn't, either way, it's a bit harsh to say something like that, especially if you can't tell if it was a joke or not... She should have made it clear she was meaning it as a compliment or a cute statement. I'm sensitive about my bulldogs, if a person don't appreciate my dogs I simply don't like that person

The groomer/owner caught me off guard though because she called out to her assistant to bring up the "fat bulldog". Uhhhh...excuse me?? I looked at her funny and she smiled and said again, "Yeah, this lady is here for the big fat bulldog." I couldn't really tell if she was joking or not but it seemed like she was serious. I've only owned Belle for a week but her breeder told me that her body condition was ideal when I picked her up. She hasn't changed since then. I know bulldogs are built thicker than other dogs so maybe this lady just isn't familiar with them? Belle has a lot of loose wrinkly skin but I can still feel her ribs although they aren't visible. I feel like she's in great condition but I wasn't happy to hear someone calling her fat...thoughts? Maybe I'm just being too sensitive. She's my baby though and I don't think that was a good thing to say to a new client
    In the words of Fluffy guy, " I am not fat, I am fluffy"😄😄

    I get that all the time about Pork Chop, my girl.

    I don't care if my baby is fat, that was just downright rude and uncalled for. I would find a new place. From your pick I don't think that Belle looks fat at all. She looks like she has good definition in her waist.
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.
