This Week’s Theme: Gross

This was a very challenging prompt! There were several photos that I wanted to use, but my kids weren’t having it! And I didn’t have the heart to override their wishes.

So we settled on this photo of Robert playing with Sophie. It appears that he is sticking his nose right into her ear because of the angle and the fact that her hair is up on his cheek. He really wasn’t . . . he was just playing with her and, most likely, nuzzling her little cheek.

What makes it gross? The idea of sticking your nose into your dog’s ear, of course! Doggy earwax? Eeeeewwwwww!

    Oh but Sophie is so cute. Doggy earwax yuck!!

  2. Lisa Renee

    Doggie earwax would definitely be gross, even from a cutie such as Sophie.


  3. I’d never even thought about doggie earwax until now! But she is a cutie!

  4. Aww, cute photo! Very nice use of the theme and just the type of gross I can handle! lol

  5. Sophie is a cutie! But I hear what you’re saying about the dog’s ear.

  6. Cute doggy but the thought of doggy ear wax is gross.

  7. OK I thought this was such a cute photo until I read that EARWAX word. Now it IS gross!! LOL

  8. kooky kay

    Adorable! More adorable than gross but the idea is yucky! Have you seen the inside of a dog’s ear? They have this huge balck specks dotted all over.

  11. That’s not gross at all ! it’s a lovely picture and it looks like he is whispering something nice in the doggy’s ear ! Looking for ear wax ! what an idea !

  12. The picture itself is very cute… but your explanation – very very illustrating. Dog´s earwax on the nose…. ewwwwww!

  13. Hahahah! I did a take on animal earwax too! It’s gross, but look how cute Sophie is!

  16. How sweet of you to let the kids veto your pics! Im sure mine wish they were only that lucky! And doggy earwax . . . *gag*! I’ve got my first SPH up. Check it out!

  17. It doesn’t seem gross at the time, when we do stuff like that.

    Strange how our affection for our pets could really make others who may not have pets, curl up their toes in discust

    mine is up

  18. I don’t know about the rest of your visitors but I find this to be a normal occurance in my house.
    Wait, does that make my house gross instead of normal?
