I received an update on Remi , pictured below, who will be 6 months old tomorrow. Remi is a good representation of the type of pups we produce here at GMBD complete with the ear crop provided by my Vet should you decide to have me arrange your cropping for you. Remi is finally finished with her Post and Tape and the tape you see on the inside of her ear is referred to Tip Taping. Many people with pups from Remi's litter report they quit taping long ago and their pups ears are standing beautifully. Dr McBride is a perfectionist though, being a show breeder herself, and continues to tape and post until the pups adult teeth are in. With my own dogs, I continued to tape and post until they were deemed done. Remi's ears, to me, are absolutely perfect and the type of crop I prefer. To a certain degree the type of crop one chooses and how long people continue to post is a personal decision. All I ask is that if you opt to choose your own Vet to perform the procedure, that you are assured that it's a procedure your Vet does fairly often and that they are able to share some photos of crops they've done.
If you'd like to see a few more picture of Remi @ 6 months, please venture over to the Blog associated with the February 2014 litter. You'll find a few more there.
