    Hi Ann,
    I just ordered some glycerin for Liam. He is 16 months now. The left ear is not tipping as well as the right...
    To make them symmetrical, I am going to try using glycerin. Do you think it will work at his age now or am I too late?
    Luckily, Liam has large ears, so more to work with!

    Liam's ears look like Brodie's ears.

    He has gorgeous colors in his coat, btw, what a stunner!

    I was surprised by how well it worked on River. It doesn't tip them immediately, but by the next day you should see some result. If the ear is stubborn use it on both inside and outside. It acts as a weight also. A little messy and greasy looking but it wears off on its own and it is very safe.

    Sorry, Gloria...not on too much because I had eye surgery last week and am half blind while it heals. I would use the glycerine just on the ear that you want to improve. Use it inside and out, just on the tip. If you can, press it down a few times a day and refresh the glycerine about every other day.

    When Minnie was 13 months, her right ear were like Liam and Brodie's.

    I didn't do anything and over time they became similar

    Now it only rises when she comes rushing to tell that she knows where the mice are :ROFLMAO:
