Took Nenya and Smidge to the dog park last night (Smidge did great, by the way) and had the following conversation with a woman there:
Woman (looking at Nenya): Oh, you have an undocked whippet?
Me [very, very confused]: ??
Me: Whippets don't have their tails docked.
Woman: I mean her ears, they aren't cropped.
Me [even more confused]: ??????????
Woman: Whippets always have their ears cut, just like greyhounds. I've seen it at Westminster; their ears stick straight up!
Me [realizing this is going nowhere]: Well, maybe she just has longer ears than most whippets, so they just LOOK uncropped. I'm sure they were cropped when she was a puppy; they just look long.
Woman [nods head, satisfied]: Yeah, that must be it.
Me [to self]: WTF just happened?
She was CONVINCED that whippets and greyhounds all have cropped ears. I just didn't have the heart to argue with her. LOL!!!
