Zero Dignity is Right

"I blame you for this, Crazy Lady." - Popeye


Popeye has been scratching his ears quite a bit for the past several months. Even the allergy medications like atopica and prednisone did not seem to do much for his ears, making me wonder if the problem is something other than allergy-related. The vets could find nothing wrong. Maybe he was scratching it so much he irritated it even further.

Whatever the case, after reading this on Sugar's blog, I decided to do what Crazy Lady did. Yes, that is a pair of Hanes on his head.

ahhh, what is it about men's underwear and the size & shape of a FMD head?

It worked great for Sugar. So...did it work for Popeye? Did you have to make any modifications and/or adjustments?

No mods. Just slipped it over his head. I put it on Popeye before putting him to bed, but he had pulled it down sometime during the night. I only tried it that one night because the next day I started using some new ear drops and he doesn't seem to be scratching as much.

Have been following your blog everyday since don't know from when, from Malaysia.
I find it heart warming and fun to read your blog about life with Popeye and all.....What you guys do with Sugar and Popeye is so funny, it make me laugh out loud in the office.
They are just so adorable. Keep up the good work.

Oh Popeye, I am so sorry for humiliation. Now everyone knows, even Malaysia, of your silly underwear head gear.

I especially love the little top knot Popeye! Wow, Malaysia, Taiwan, Guatemala, you are quite the famous, and handsome dog, even with underwear on you head.
