Cautiously, they told us their story. They said that both of them had held jobs and that they enjoyed working. Their jobs were lost when the factory shut down. Then, a fire broke out in their apartment building. What furniture they owned was damaged by smoke and the sprinkler system, one of their dogs died (presumably from smoke inhalation). After unemployment was exhausted they had no place to go and nothing to stay in town for.
Most dogs never experience problems with their ears if they are regularly cleaned about once a month. Dogs with floppy ears do tend to experience more problems than other dogs, so they may need to be cleaned more frequently depending on how dirty they get. A dog with dirty ears can develop many health problems ranging from parasites and bacteria to allergies and infections.
So think about it. In the roughly 14 or so years of our active youth, the Baby Boomer generation shaped this country’s views on youth, women, and minorities.
