The softest thing in the world...

Is there anything more soft than a corgi's ears?

The answer is no.  No, there is not.  Rabbit fur, cashmere, baby bottoms, you name it.  Nothing in the world compares.  I can sit and pet Gibson's ears all day long :)

Of course, along with being incredibly soft, they are also incredibly sensitive to noise.  I think I've mentioned that one of Gibson's biggest fears is that little chirp that the smoke detector makes when it needs batteries.   Well, as we speak, Gibson is hiding because I was watching a house tour on a blog that I read and one of their smoke detectors just happened to be chirping.  It wasn't even in our house and it freaked him out!  Sheesh.

Must go console doggie... ;)

P.S. Don't forget to enter this week's giveaway! It's a good one! :)

I can't think of a single thing softer.... or cuter than a happy nub!

OMG right??? I am always so amazed at how soft her ears are!!! I love it. And as you know, that's the sound that sends Sadie into the fetal position too lol. Even if it's just on TV! Poor things! Hope Gibson is ok!

I agree about the ears! I could sit and pet my Corgi for hours...and he would let me!

The noise that Tuff hates the most is the radio in my car. He loves to sleep on long road trips, but when he was a puppy I noticed him always trying to bury his head under the blanket when we went on a trip. I quickly realized I can't blare my favorite music, because his ears are so sensitive! Now I fade the speakers all the way to the back drivers side and keep the volume low, so he is comfortable lying in the passenger seat or floorboard, and I still get to have my tunes!

favorite thing to do...relax and play with Bailey's ears...she hates it, but endures it because she knows I love to touch her ears :-)

Isn't that the truth? I have a fluff and his ears are quite soft, lovely to kiss!

Gimli also goes crazy for the smoke alarm. Go figure!

Haha, people who touch my dogs exclaim "OMG their ears are so soft!" I'm like, "I know, right?!"

I like turning their ears inside out sometimes. Have you ever done that? So all you see are the little hairs in front of their ear. :p

I love kissing Theo's ears right after I give him a bath when they're at their softest (erm, and cleanest...).

I second the low-battery sound on the fire alarm. Momo hates it with a passion! That's the only sound I've ever seen him react severely to!

We can relate. Our smoke detector is Gus's arch nemesis. :)

Nothing softer... even our rabbit likes nuzzling Hank's ears.

They do look exceedingly soft!

No, nothing softer, I always tell Jack how soft his ears are and how much I love them. I also tell Jack that the smoke detector beep is really not all that scary...as he lays quivering under the bed covers...
