ears , down, what is going on

I am curious whether I am spotting a trend or not .

If your dog has a non-erect , soft or hanging ear , which side would that be on , Right side or Left side?

I am trying to get some sort of a pole to see whether there is an inclination to soft ears being more common on one side .

My Tessa has a semi soft ear. It's her left. Her right ear was up from the day we picked her up.

can someone organize this as a new thread with a Poll - I tried but didn't quite come out.

Age of dog -- I guess anything you could have three levels -
one to 4 months
one to 9 months
and one with a down ear which persists into and throughout adulthood

I have looked at a lot of pictures of dogs lately and a trait began to reveal .

so we have one for the left down --

two for the dog's left ear. Oscar. He is 18 months old, and I doubt it will go up now.

Right ear. I saw a show called secret life of dogs once about service dogs being one sided dominate. Would lead with that side always. Also they all had the same swirls of fur going that way. Maybe a similar thing?
