Due to the nature of the ear and the location of the sites stitching was not an option. As you can see by the photo, things look raw, but rather looking raw for 10 - 14 days than a complete amputation of the ear structure. Until this I never knew the little out flap of a dog's ear was called 'Harry's Purse'? How bizarre.
But today Darcy is brighter and not fussing with her ear, and as the photo below shows, she can still turn on the cutsie charm :)
