Does your poodle have hair covering inside the ear flap?
Dude's undersides are virtually hair free except along the bottom edge. Daisy's however have practically the same amount of hair on the inside as the outside!
What's your dog's like?
Oh, and also...why is that ear hair so quickly flattens after combing? Both dogs can get fluffed and literally within a few minutes they are both flat again. The freshly brushed looks disappear SO quick on the ears- does that happen to you all, too?
Dude is lucky! The back of Beau's ears are pretty hairy, though certainly not as much as the front. The hair can also grow down or over the ear canal, which means it has to be plucked when he gets groomed.
As to why those fluffy, poofy ears -- like the ones pictured in Beau's avatar -- only last about two days max, well, I will be interested to find out myself.
Indy has such a thick, dense coat....great for scissoring, great in a show dog, but kind of a pain in a pet. She has a lot of hair in her ear canals, which I pull out with my fingers fairly regularly (and which she hates! poor muffin). Maddy does not have as thick a coat as Indy, so she has less hair in her ears. She's also tougher and doesn't make much of a fuss when I pull it. I heard that we should never clean the ears and pull hair on the same day, so I follow that advice diligently! p.s. do you blow-dry, kukukachoo? That's what gives that lovely huge fluffy ear. My dogs hate being blow-dried so I only do it rarely. It is a great way to ensure a mat-free coat, though.
Molly's ears are like Dude's..just around the edges on the inside. Her ears also go flat 5 mins after I blow dry! That's the only place her 'fluff' isn't poofy! I don't think she'll ever have poofy ears!

Ears aren't nearly as curly as the body, that's why they go flat so quickly. Trev has hardly any curl at all in his ears, they are quite silky and flat, almost like a maltese or shih tzu but with a little more curl/wave. He has quite a bit on the underside though.
