This was great! My GSD has been through all of these stages. He kept his ears up all day yesterday, and I was so excited. Today, it's back to the 'flying nun'.

Usually if they are up for a few days then they are up. 8 wks is before the teething stage kicks in so chances are if they stay up a couple of weeks they will be up for good. congrats!

Adorable! Thank you for sharing! Gotta love those ear stages -- especially the tee-pee, the comb over, and the double flop! Oh heck, they're all cute!
(Knock on wood, for when I'm panicking about my own pup's ears somewhere down the line!)

Love the ear pictures!

This is Mia at 7 weeks.

Some of her littermates at the same age.

Mia at approximateley 9 weeks.

She did go through the teepee stage for 2 days and a one ear flop for only one day. Except for those, her ears always stood.

Anyone got a pic of "Happy Ears"?
I keep seeing the term in a lot of posts but I don't know what "Happy Ears" should look like

Up ears on mine happened around 4.5 months. She had a stubborn one that took awhile to activate!
