Yes, seriously between 5 & 6. His ears were never erect, ever. The breeder spent lots of time taping and trying everything they knew to make them go up. He went thru the teepee stage, the bad comb-over stage, and then they pretty much each stuck out to their own side. Everybody made so much fun of him and I was constantly asked what kind of mutt dog was he. Finally, they started standing when he saw squirrels, or was in a state of excitement. Then one day, there they stood - beautifully erect all the time!! Even when he's exhausted they still stay up. I was totally amazed as were lots of folks on this board, but I posted a history of his pics a while back.
