Harriet, he's ADORABLE! But, I'd be right with you in wanting that ear up. I pray that our puppy's will be okay. He'll be 6 months on the 13th of this month. We're doing the pipe insulation and tape route from the Leerburg site, and it appears to be helping. But, he knocks it all down at night and then his ears tend to be back down. So stressful. I'll bet that you've still go a real shot at 8 months. I'm going to try the method from the video if we don't have good result by 6.5 months, I think.
I attached a photo of our current efforts. Trappe is a large pup (69 lbs at 5.5 months) with huge, heavy, soft ears.
