Just tell people he's under a vet's care and this is what the vet did. If they ask what happened just say you don't want to talk about it. It's not their business anyway. *S*

5 Months - Getting nervous about ears

We untaped Klaus' right ear yesterday, and both are standing up! His weaker ear has been up since Wednesday, the vet was just trying to fix the angle on the stronger one.

The ears are still a bit soft so they bounce a bit when he runs, but they're standing! I was told the cartilage would harden a bit now that the tape is off.

Still giving him lots of bones, eggs, chicken necks, yogurt and good food.

Here's some before during and after taping photos:





We had just taken the tape off his right ear there so it's a little wrinkled but that smoothed out overnight. So that's the conclusion (hopefully!) to this thread!

Good! Beautiful! He looks great! It can take quite some time for them to stiffen and they might never, but as long as they are up.

Thank you! I'm very happy with how they turned out even if they don't stiffen. I never knew I could be so proud of a pair of ears lol

LOL! I don't know if it is a show line thing or what but IME, their ears seem to come up later creating lots of worry.

I could see that - generally it seems like their ears are bigger and the leather heavier, a lot of the working line puppies I see have their ears up from the start! Lucky dogs

I know in the end it doesn't matter but I am always relieved when ears stand (except when you have a breed that is supposed to have floppy ears). It is one of their trade marks. They look like a complete different breed when they are not up.
He looks pretty nice.

Thank you, I feel exactly the same. I feel like I stole someone else's dog or something - he looks so different now! It truly wouldn't have mattered to how we feel about him, but I am happy it worked.
