Default Ear Stages - a pictorial

Having a new puppy has reminded me of all those fun ear stages so I went back through all my dogs puppy pics over the years to see the different stages. I've taken the liberty of naming a few. Enjoy!

[The Teenie Ears]



The Unstopping Ears:


The Double Flop:


The Comb Over:



The Flying Nun:



The Cross Over:



To the Left, to the left:



The Seashells:



Dear Lord, please let my ears go up first:



The Teepee:



The One Up:



The Glue Up:



And Perfect:

My all time favorite "ear stage" is the Teepee stage. I LOVE this stage, unfortunately both my GSD's ears went up in a matter of days of bringing them home... good and bad I suppose - I like the "wonky ear stage"!!!

OMG, that's so adorable!! I love it!! Blitz's ears went up before 7 weeks and were solid, not even the tinniest flop.... I know I should be happy cause so many people stress over it but I wish we could of had just a little flop for adorable pictures like these!!!!

I love seeing the funky ear stages. I gotta say, I love the comb-overs and teepee ears. LOL

my pups ears were up when i got him, then one went down for about a week, now 1 ear is completely up and the other just has a small "limp" tip that doesn't bug me.. but is the glueing really necessary? my pup is 10 weeks old now

Awesome! My mom called the Teepee stage - "Madix has his party hat on and he's ready to go!"

folded ear tip like this? Shasta's ear tip on her, is actually broken. As long as nothing is wrong with the ear, and thats all thats waiting to stand, i dont think you need to worry. Shasta has a decent sized chunk out of part of her ear from when one of her litter mates bit down too hard. i think its adorable! lol.
