Each morning our foster dog Shady Shae jumps on my head and sticks her tongue down my ear. If I let her work on it for too long, she’ll start nibbling on my lobe. Shady loves cleaning out ears. I’ve caught her cleaning out Meadow, Ade, and Dawn’s ears on multiple occasions. And she won’t stop until they give her the warning growl, like “knock it off, kid.” Me? Well, I’m queen freak. I let her go at it until I get out of bed. She’s cuter than any Q-tip.
