so the little monster has what looks like a bug bite in his ear. its a pea sized bump that is pretty angry looking- red and puss-ing. there is no smell to his ear, and it is otherwise clean, however he has been shaking his head and scratching the culprit ear more than normal the past 2 days. since my last dog, an australian cattle dog, had the most stand-up-straight, alert ears ever, i'm new to lab ear hygiene. should i be worried at all about this?
Since there is pus involved, I would have it checked

Pus generally means infection, so I would have it checked. The vet will probably prescribe some antibiotics, which will help, too.
If there is pus, have it checked.
thanks everyone. i figured the pus was a bad sign. just needed some reassurance that i wasnt overreacting.
