It takes dogs at least 18 muscles to move their ears, that’s only one more muscle than it takes for you to smile, but way more impressive.
At night when you’re deep in slumber, your pup can hear the high-frequency pulse of the crystal resonator used in digital alarm clocks, and those termites living peacefully in your walls? Fido can hear their bodily vibrations.
There’s also a bunch we can learn about dogs from just observing their ears. So what are they trying to tell us?
1. “I can’t help channeling my Bighorn Sheep every time I’m on the boat. It’s like a thing.”
2. “The lop-sided look will be HUGE this year.”
3. “Check out how freaky strong this fly is. It’s lifting my whole ear!.” #TeeHeeHee
4. “Mom said if I kept making those ears they’d stick that way…”
5. “She made fun of my stubby tail but I didn’t do nothing cuz she was like ‘this’ tall.”
6. “What do they mean ‘Awww her ears are so pointy?!!??!?!!?!?!'”
7. “Can I have a shower cap for muh ears next time? PUH-lease?!”
8. “I learned to make my own man-buns like you Dad. I learned it on YouTube.”
9. “Somebody turn off the light!”
10. “Didn’t mean to bother you in the bathroom. If you could just hand me those Q-tips…” #GottaKeepThesePuppiesClean
11. “S’okay. My ears will slow me on the way down.”
