Dog buns

It seems that there’s a new trend in grooming and photographing dogs – it’s called dog buns, as seen from these photos downloaded from Instagram and Pinterest:

Tying up of the ears can interfere with blood circulation and, if left in for any period of time, the area is a breeding ground for bacteria – particularly in wet conditions.

Leave your dog’s ears alone!  The only dog buns I like to see are these ones:
