Well I succeeded at my first posting. She made it surprisingly easy on me though. Its kind of my second actually because she got the cup off one night so I put on a new one.
If I can figure this out Im going to post before, the cup I did, and the post job from today.
And because I just cant resist, a couple of her and Chopper.

I do need opinions on whether or not to brace the ears for the first few posts or if the position theyre in is ok. Her breeder and vet thinks theyre fine.

Having a chat about the ears

Youre doing WHAT to my ears??!!

Really Dad! I just got that off.



Todays posting job

Wait wait.....Shes getting a signal!


Wouldve been a great pic if that stupid leaf wouldnt have moved!

New story of Choppers life. I know he looks miserable but they are best buddies.

He makes a great bed

From the one or two pics of them that looks like a very nice crop job. As for bridging, it seems like she's keeping them up pretty well but if you're worried I don't think it'd hurt to add a bridge for a week or two. Dreizehn's ears were bridged until he was 4 and a half months old or so. I think it's all about personal preference.

Yeah Ill have to get some better pics uploaded between posts sometime. As far as the position, I wonder if its partly due to how I stretched them when I taped them. Thats about the angle I was stretching. Would you recommend Stretching upwards more?
One ear flopped when they were down and drying after I cleaned before I posted. The other just kind of drooped a little if that makes any since.

Great Photos! My puppy does the same exact thing to my Pug mix. He makes the same face as your Pitty does. Love your boys.

Beautiful dogs!! And nice posting job. Mine never look that neat. I do use much less tape on the ears though to let them breathe. Something to keep in mind. I try to just put 3 pieces of tape on the ears.

I agree, nice neat job. Like Adara though, I prefer to use much less tape and never any vet wrap. I like as much airflow as possible to reach as much of the ear as possible. I don't like wrapping the ears up like a cocoon.

Thanks. I think they are keepers. I'm probably going to re-post tomorrow night so any advice is great.

I have tape at tip of ear, then vet wrap, then tape at base of ear. The tape is 1". So basically just two pieces of tape but then vet wrap. Shouldn't the vet wrap allow them to breath? Are you saying that you put tape at tip, then middle, then base?

And as far as positioning and stretching, you can see that they are at 10 and 2 which is the direction that I stretched them when I taped the tips. Should I try more for 11 and 1? And Patchwork said she thinks bridging is a matter of personal preference. What is your opinion?
