I have lovely ears, they are in fact my best feature. People pay lots of $$$ and spend lots of time to get their dogs ears to stand up as beautifully as mine do. German Shepherds are notorious for having the "ear flops" early on and people go to the most extreme measures to get those suckers to stand up.
Some of my litter mates had the "ear flops" but not me! No my friends, LexiDogWeather's ears stood up practically from birth! In fact it was my ears standing at attention that caught Mom's eye when she first saw me. She saw me prancing around proudly full of confidence and bravado and knew right then I was the perfect dog.

Now while I plainly adore my ears there are times when they do cause me trouble. They are my biggest "tell" unfortunately, if I have done something wrong and I feel guilty my darn ears give me away. I can't control it really or trust me I would! I chew up Dad's shoes or get into the garbage and my ears slowwwwllly disappear against my head until it looks like I'm earless! Mom takes one look at me and says, "Alright, what'd you do?"

Don't feel bad humans that your ears can't do much but sit there on the sides of your head, we can't all be perfect.
Oh and one more thing about dog ears, they are excellent for listening to hear the sound of the can opener for dinner...which I hear right now! So....
Till next time
