Covering for dog's ears

Post  Miss Pugg on 9/14/2010, 10:28 pm

My Boston, Jasmine, is losing her hair plus her hairless ears are thin enough to read thru. My vet last spring suggested putting some type of covering over her ears for when she goes outside or on walks. She has the upright ears and anything will smash them down but that's the least of my worries. What in the world could I use for a covering? I see some dog catalogues have hoodies on the coats but not sure if she would tolerate them or not. Any information would be gratefully received. Last week, we went to a parade, it was cold and windy and her poor ears were like ice cubes. I went back to the car and got a fleecy human coat and covered her with it, just her nose and eyes peeking out. She was OK having her ears squashed down but then she was on my lap being cuddled.

Umm I think most purpose made dog hats actually leave the ears loose. Poor darling with cold ears!

Why not try a knitted babies' bonnet or toddler beanie and see if she will tolerate those. I am thinking the woollen baby bonnet would be open weave enough to allow hearing and air flow, yet warm enough to prevent icy ears? Pretty much available everywhere I'm sure you could find an inexpensive one if family members don't have one in the bottem drawer somewhere.

Can you knit? I know Alice knitted a sweet little hat with ear-coverings, and it ties under Cyril's chin. I am sure Alice would give you the pattern or tell you how to do it. Send her a PM.

Ears

Post  Miss Pugg on 9/15/2010, 9:52 pm

I've knitted all my life but with 3 dogs (5 total eyes) on my lap, I have given it up. In fact, for many years I made bonnets for preemies in hospitals, had forgotten all about it and I think I still have the patterns. That's a good idea and I will keep the dogs from my lap and get some knitted up. My DIL crochets & maybe she'd have some ideas. Thanks....
