Almost 5 months old!!!

The first picture was taken a week or two ago, as we were heading out to the breeders to get Finleys ears re-taped. That dang fussy ear! The second was taken Thanksgiving night, I think he was very dissatisfied with the lack of dinner scraps he received! haha The rest are were taken when he was about 4 months old. He's growin fast!

What a gorgeous pup!

You may have some pockets forming, causing the ears to tip inwards. I have never posted ears before but I think a bumper or bridge will help.

Someone with more experience please chime in

Never look down on someone, unless you are helping them up

Rouleaux had terrible pockets! I wound up stuffing cotton behind the backerod posts and would change them every 2 days (I am very impatient, and luckily they were quick to resolve). It also looks like you aren't stuffing the backer rod into the ear to give it somewhere to rest (pictures 4 and 6 from the top), unless that is just a result of movement- his crop is long, so you will be posting far longer than I did, but in the end the result will be beautiful.

love your little guy's expressions! he is too cute!

Yeah his breeder said the same thing about the pocketing. They look a lot better now, but since he is getting stronger he was managing to pull the posts up and out of his ear.. So she is now taping them a little differently and they are seeming to hold pretty well. Plus she thought the center connecting piece was causing his ears to tip in, and ever since she hasn;t put it back on his ears are standing much straighter! The crop is show standard, but it will be well worth it when it's done. I absolutely love the way it looks

And thanks for the body mod compliment! They are my other babies! lol

Gosh doesn't he look familiar! He is growing so fast just like his brother.

Dee will fix those ears up no problem. She did the best job with Cato's ears.

I'm so glad you posted pictures. I love watching his siblings growing up. It's like reliving his tiny-puppy-ness without the 'wanting to pull my hair out at times' part.

I'm NOT an ear expert so hopefully others can chime in. Flirt had ears that touched in a similar manner that for a very short time. I was using a bridge between the ears and it was too tight. Once I got rid of the bridge, the ears corrected themselves. and if possible NEVER let them flop.

That's exactly what the breeder did! She took the middle piece out and once that happened his ears stopped falling inward towards one another Worked like a charm
