I used a couple of Breathe Right strips and eyelash glue (got it from Target), to prop a soft ear up on Russell one time. It worked great.

Eyelash glue don't need a lot. Just around edges of strip and smear it around. Hold in ear for minute to let it stick

Ok bit how long should I do this? Because one of the strips fell out last night and the ear is still floppy

Do you guys shave the hairy area ?

I never did. Hair will come off regardless when glueing but it will grow in fast. Try to keep strips in for a few weeks if they come out put in right away.

The only way I got the strips to stay was eyelash glue. And they stayed up for several days. When they finally came loose, his ear was up for good.
