Dang that ear!!

So at what point do I resign myself to the fact that Duffy is going to be a lopsided earred dog?? The ear is coming unglued--again--and if I leave it the ear will pop straight up! Somehow this all goes with my head- strong, sometimes contrary Duffy!

unfortunately it may stay prick as he didn't have his ears glued during the first crucial months while he was teething :(.....
I would just apply a bit of the glue to the outside edge of the ear & keep it that way, just in case he gets shown, then Dave can help you with weighing the ear down for the ring....
he is still a most handsome little devil :)

That's where I glue it--along the edge--you had said that's what you did and I find it stays in longer, holds better, and doesn't annoy Duffy like gluing the tip down to the inside of the eardoes. So, thanks again for the good advice Jolene! Maybe Duffy can wear some kind of earring to weight the ear down-like a pirate!!

I'm all for character Jacqueline!! Except it has to be tipped in the show ring! :(

He's pretty. Unfortunately after about 4-5 months of age, you're pretty screwed with the ears. That's why they live in tape til they are around 7 months. If they come out they go right back in. Even a week out at 4 months old can wreck having good ears.
