We've been through the comb over, the cross over, and the flying nun.We are now stuck on "one up" . It has become a guessing game what Thor's ears will be doing day by day...

Wonky ear...I love that! I'd like to officially change the stage name of 'seashells' to wonky ear!

Montanna Scout - no gluing taping a 10 week old is NOT necessary. If I have a pup that ears aren't up by 5 months I use the forms. THey could still go up on their own afte that but it starts to get iffy so I go ahead and do it at that point (i've only had to do once on both ears and once on a single ear)

I realized I missed the 'collie' stage (ears up except tips are over). I went back through all pics and don't have a great example but this someone gives the look. If anyone has a good example of the collie stage please post it.

Oh how cute! I know we shouldn't base cute puppy pictures on our decision but how could anyone not want one of these.

I guess it not really a stage but I love "happy ears" ....when they lay them down during greeting when they are really happy to see you!

This is fantastic! My girl's ears went up pretty quick too, but I definitely remember picking her up with the flying nun ears and thinking..aren't your ears supposed to stand up!? Boy did that change quickly Great pics!!

8 weeks we had the 1 up

Then they were both down

The one up happened again quickly followed with a combover

FINALLY at about 4 months, the combover one started pushing towards the sky was floppy and then lo and behold 4.5 months old....

SUCCESS!!!

Here are some pics of these
