    The breeder told me her ears aren't up and folded over, but gave me instructions on wax to do this. Flipped ears are cute, Skip had them, Missy did not. I am not going to wax her ears.

    Ella is an absolute darling! Love her face, so sweet!
    Ears usually don’t start to be an issue until they start teething at around 3 months or so. If your not interested in taping or glue you can always rub some glycerin on the ear near where the natural break should be (on both sides). Do this every other day and just massage the ears periodically and it should be enough to keep them from going prick.
    Ella is a beauty!

    Thanks! Can you tell what type of glycerin or is there just one kind?

    Oh Ella is a beauty! What a lovely face, coloring and expression. I ended up gluing Meadow's ears for about 6 months and they are now perfect. Thanks for posting photos of your adorable girl.

    wax to tip the ears? I'd be interested in learning more about that method......

    glycerin is glycerin- you can get it in hobby stores in the soapmaking section and pharmacies also usually have it........

    I asked for clarification and I have a handout from the breeder. This is what she sent and says to do rather than wax.
