Bentley's Tina Turner ears

I spent almost 2 hours this morning brushing Bentley, it should be an Olympic sport!! Then he went outside long enough to pee in the rain, this is what his ears look like again

I guess it's not just his body that's going through the "gawkward" stage. Too bad we can't take some of that fly away fur from his ears and weave it into his lil rat tail

Be patient. He will get that full tail soon enough, and then you will have more to brush.

Ah the famous ears that happen to go into the water every time he goes for a drink. I know those ears, I know them well I refuse to keep grooming Chester while his coat comes in I just pass the rake through at night and every time I attempt to brush those ears the same ol thing happens in 15 minutes....I give up I give up I give up!

I keep at it because grooming is the one thing we haven't even come close to conquering yet. Bentley fights like a grizzly bear when I try to brush him. I've tried peanut butter on the fridge for him to lick, everything I've seen suggested on here and nothing works so far. I'm just hoping that with repetition he will eventually get used to it.
