On Sunday, while tracking a deer with Buck, Teak had the very unfortunate experience of getting approximately 837 cockleburrs stuck in his fur, with about 70% of them in the hair of his right ear. Teak is 2 1/2 years old, and even though he's had many haircuts, we've never let the groomer touch the curlson his ears or the top of his head. His ear hair is very long, which worked to Teak's disadvantage and the cockleburrs' advantage. After pricking our own fingers full of holes, and removing several of them, Biz decided the only way to finally settle the matter was to take the beard trimmer to Teak's ear. Now he has sad, very uneven ears.
How sad is he? This honestly put me in a bad mood on Sunday.
