Finally, some progress on the ears!
Here's what I had when I untaped them on Saturday:
And another shot of Rip's ears-up cuteness:
The left ear looks great - it stands up really well. Unfortunately, the right ear sometimes flopped and folded back weirdly, so he's back in the tape.
A boxer (dog breeder) friend of mine says she sometimes uses breathe-right strips to keep ears from folding. I bought a box, and am thinking of giving it a go next time I have to re-tape. Have any of you every tried it?
