Here’s my little moppit, Duke. He’s growning so fast. I look at the newborn E litter and think, “wow, that’s how small he used to be”. He’s 20# now, mostly legs and feet. He can’t sneek up on you ’cause he makes a *thud thud thud thud* when he trots. LOL I wish I could take better pictures, ’cause these don’t do him justice.

How old is he now? At what age do their ears normally stay up?
Hi Jennifer, depending on the size of the ears they can start going up as early as 6 – 7 weeks. Most often they do what duke’s ears are doing, up down, sideways, teepee’d, criss-crossed. They can be up perfectly and then fall down when they start to teethe at 4 months.
Thanks, Julie. I’ve seen so many pictures of puppies on this blog with ears every which way, but didn’t know their age. I love it when they criss-cross over the top of their head.
Duke is from the D litter, born 10-01-12.
Sometimes, his ears will both be up, but the tips floppy (which is adorable). I’m just not fast enough with the camera.
I’m so happy for you. You will soon be getting your puppy. I look forward to pictures!
Duke’s Mom, Terri
Search my post “Watch me grow Libby “S” litter” to see some of the ear action. Ziva’s ears were down when I got her at 9 weeks and by the end of week 10 they were up and that was it.
You can see that he is very much loved and he is very happy! Please give him a big hug and kiss from grandma.
It’s me, DuKe. I am having fun with my Mom, Terri. She is a *crazy dog lady* ha ha. I go everywhere with her and I get to meet all kinds of peoples and dogs. Today, we went back to a dog store that I was at before. Mom said “Duke, you act like you own this place.” I don’t know, but I had shopping on my brain and I picked out a new cuz ball.” “People are nice, they tell me how cute I am and then they feed me treats! HaHa, Grams, Life Is Good!”
I wuv you too,
Your widdle, cuddly, wuddly, red collar DuKe
Duke is adorable!
