Attention, Ladies and Germs....drumroll please....

OK, Let me preface this by saying, this ear could still go back down, but I don't think it will this time (crossing my fingers). It has now been up for an entire week now, without the foam glued in, which is a record for us after 3-1/2 mos of glueing. It's also a little lopsided, but I will take what I can get, and maybe it will straighten a little over time. If not, oh well. I love it! So without further ado, here's my boy with TWO, count 'em, TWO, ears upright!!! (Sorry, everyone, my computer locks up everytime I try to shrink this in Photobucket)...



Is my baby fine, or what?

He's very handsome, wishing him luck with the ear. Looks like he might be able to fold it inward. Morgan does a flying nun fold thing with both ears when she's bad (like tonight, caught her eating corn cobs out of the trash!)

He is pretty without or without the standing ears. Of course love the way it looks with both of them up

OMG...That's a stunning fellow!!!!! Do you have pictures of him as a little pup..??? I'm just curious what he looked like when you first brought him home? Was the plush coat obvious even at 8 or 9 weeks?

Thanks! Looking back, it was obvious he was not a short-coated GSD. I knew he had a more "fluffy than usual" coat as a pup, with lots of "ear fuzz" as I call it. But honestly, at the time I didn't even know there was such a thing as a long-coated GSD. So I didn't ask. I kept waiting for him to shed that long puppy coat, but it just ended up more coarse/slick than fluffy as he grew. He alsogrew into the "ear fuzz". LOL! If I had known when I was calling breeders that long-coats existed, I wouldn't have even gone to look at him. I'm glad I didn't know b/c he has turned out to be the smartest, sweetest, prettiest dog I've ever seen (not that I'm biased!). I fell in love with him on site - when I got him, he was all black with just a touch of grey on his paws/chest, basically. If I ever get another GSD, I'll probably get a coated one. He's just so pretty I don't think I could go back to short-coats (which is what we grew up with as kids). The funny thing is he was the "reject" of the litter - the last little male to be picked. LOL! I don't have any of his really little "baby" pics on line, but here's a couple pics of him when he was smaller than he is now...
