The Ears Story

So As I showed you guys a couple of days ago. When I first got Nunu she looked like this:

One ear up and one ear down.
Then about a week later her other ear popped up.

She was a puppy so she was going through a series of shots.
One of the shots she got must have been pretty rough because both of her ears fell.

I thought, "Oh no they broke my dog!"

But they were up again the next day. (Whew!)

And have been up ever since.
Except when they're folded back.

I love when their ears get folded back(:

Nunu is a cute name for a dog, but if I had one i'd name it Fezziwig

Evonne said...

I just love Nunu. I am jealous you have such a beautiful "daughter".

Unknown said...

Her ears make me think of the Flying Nun.

Mayra said...

She's so cute! And why is it that big guys always like small dogs?

Liney said...

That is absolutely adorable. I usually go for dogs with floppy ears, but Nunu has changed my opinion!

Talk With No Thought said...

ha! Too cute.

Unknown said...

cuteeee

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

The last picture of Nunu is classic! Her eyes seem to be saying 'what the heck is that!'

:-)

El Ave Felix: Abogado' said...

Awesome ears!

Teri said...

"Oh no, they broke my dog". That was funny. Nunu is a great name. She's a cute little dog, and it makes me laugh to see the photos.

Amy McMean said...

the folded back look is a little scarey. lol

B.R said...

Nunu is velly velly cute.
Thank you for sharing cuteness, because it promotes peeing in pants, and peeing in pants promotes buying new pants! Maybe we can buy Levis!

They should hire you as a spokespearson for Levis jeans...
And Nunu should appear in the commercial too. Big floppy ears make peolple wanna buy more

Julie said...

Your dog is too cute. I would not have been able to resist her in the pet store either!

by the way ..that's the cutest ugly dog i've ever seen...Duuuuude..

Movie Star Wife said...

My kids will love seeing your pictures of Nunu. They have been begging for a dog a lot lately.

Please Type Legibly said...

I've always wondered if you named her for the chihuahua on the Dog Whisperer. She's a cutie, Jorge.

Snowbird said...

Oh Jorge, thank you for the giggle. I can always count on you to brighten up my day.

Suzanne said...

Now just imagine what you'll be like when (if) you have kids. Cute pictures of them all over the blog. =)

I left you a comment on your Load of Crepe post, but then I realized you probably don't check back that far. So...in short, we went to Crepes No Ka Oi last week just because of that post, and it really was good. They are really nice there, too!

em for mighty said...

my dog gypsy has both up when she's stressed & then flops on down when everythings okay...maybe nunu is the opposite.

Sandy said...

Doesn't get much cuter than that....unless it's my Lucy!

InkyW said...

aaahhhh the cute. can. not. stand. it.

i need a laydown now!

Lynn Faruque said...

Scout does that when he wants something. :-)

So, if I'd seen baby Nunu look like that on the day you first saw her, I'd have gotten her, too.

I am loving these pictures.

Mindy said...

I'm seriously loving the history of the ears! :) That's just too cute.

stasiface said...

God bless & love, stasiface (pronounced 'stacy' but mine IS spelled correctly LOL!) a fan in brooklyn new 'yawk' (my husband and i are 'lost' fans! since the beginning! WHOO HOO!

2Losties said...

Aww! Thanks for the cute pics! They made me smile. :D

Wendyburd1 said...

He is so bloody cute!!

Mandy said...

As a puppy, my Chihuahua's ears did the same thing. At first they were both floppy. Then one stood up and she was lopsided. LOL. I was a little sad when the other popped up too. Her ears are as big as Nunu's. I'm afraid when the wind picks up, she will fly away!

calla lily said...

reminds of Happy...you know from Rudolph's Shiny New Year

AtomBlonde said...

We just watched with glee, as our baby Boston Terrier 'Ace' grew into his ears. I totally love the floppy ear action it was so cute while it lasted.

Nunu is just the bees knees. I so dig her!

Eugen Caitaz said...

I want have the same ears.
:)

Clare said...

Nunu reminds me of Stich from Lilo & Stich - especially in the second photo.

MiNA said...

Jules said...

Cute dog. Almost looks like you got her at a pound.

Tales of Whimsy said...

D'nelle said...

Jorge - I demand more stories about Nunu!!! She's delightful!!!
What breed is she?

ValMo said...

Homigosh! Eeeee! She is so cute! I think ears back is my fave.

Paul Spooner said...

Numu = Nibbler

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nibbler_(Futurama)

Well, have you ever seen them in the same room together?

Kristen J. said...

I do the same thing with my dog! We call him Princess Leia!

Laura McIntyre said...

Deborah Godin said...

Puppy semafores...if only we knew what it meant. I'm sure it's good, though. Yes.

ReNaTo UêGa said...

Surpreyes said...

Whit said...

Aww, I'm so glad your puppeh isn't broken! She's adorable.

moon said...

Folded ear on dog = ear-do.

Cassandra said...

Her ears are as big as her head! She must totally have bionic hearing!

Cassandra said...

P.S. I know this is completely off topic, but I wanted to give everyone this recipe I found online for Lost fish biscuits!!! I made the dough, colored it, made the template, and carved in the lettering, and they came out tasting great but were always puffier than the ones in the show and the pictures online. Anyway, for best results, go here first:

Erin said...

Oh, my goodness. That is too much cuteness for one post!!

My dog is part basset hound, and her ears practically dragged against the ground when she was a little puppy. But her ears grew, and she didn't. I kinda miss the length of those puppy ears...

Seabiscuit said...

Are those ears or a means to pick up signals from the Chihuahua Homeworld? ;)

Serguma said...

She was telling you "I'm going to turn left, follow me"

Unknown said...

Augh! Can't handle the cuteness! Nunu is so precious! I don't even know what to do with myself.... seriously. How do you contain yourself? -e

Steve C. said...

This happens to all chihuahuas. I think I read once that it's due to a temporary calcium deficiency that occurs while they develop their adult teeth. My own theory is that they need a little extra cuteness during that period, which is when they're most likely to chew up everything in the house, so you don't kill them.

We have a five year old chihuahua and we're in town over in Kaimuki, if you ever wanna have some little dog play time.

Nells-Bells said...

how funny that her ears show her true emotions. you can always tell how she is feeling by the way her ears are. ;)

rabbeltje said...

and here i was thinking my boyfriend was the only one folding back ears on our pets! they're cats though. he make them do an 'elvis-lipcurl' sometimes...

Unknown said...

Nunu is totally precious. My dog's ears went up and down for the first year and then they stayed with one down and one up for about 8 years. Now he is 10 and all grown up, they both stand up. Here is my little dude:

Susana said...

Hermosa!

Unknown said...

your dog is like a surprise box you never know how she'll be when you wake up with the ears up or down, anyway your dog is very cute :)

Greetings from brazil

Tia said...

Awwwww! Too cute! Your doggie totally reminds me of Skippyjon Jones (a little kids book about a Siamese Cat who thinks he's a Chihuahua)

"My Name is Skippito Friskito.
I fear not a single bandito.
My manners are mellow,
I'm sweet like the Jell-O,
I get the job done,
yes indeed-o.
Yip, Yippee, yippito!"
