    Defaultdoggie ear-barometer....

    I can tell Sophie's mood by the way she hold's her ears! Do yours doggie's have this trait? She will slick them back and you can see the pink if she is scared or upset, she has them loose and floppy when relaxed and "normal"....kind of stiffer and bouncy when she's in crack-dog mode! Funny!

    With Bentley I can tell by his eyes and were his ears are laying. If he is being a good boy everything is normal. Ears flat and he doesn't have the "look" in his eye". If he is getting ready to do something that will get him in trouble he has a look to him and if he is laying down he will just stand up and then either get the zoomies,drink out of the toilet,or brake something.

    I think if Midwests girl Toby,your Sophie and Bentley got together it would be a little scary!

    Most definitely, when Lexi is relaxed her ears are the same way, just sort of there.

    When she is excited, they sit up higher, like she is listening for something. If I've raised my voice at her, they'll be back against her head.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    Try holding a camera in their face ! The ears go down faster than lightning in my experience.

    colin, try holding the camera and asking them if they would like to go for a walk.

    Then there's cup ear, which you see when they are in trouble, or when you come home and they are happy to see you:



    But beware of "evil ears":


    You see this when they are bad; for example, they just took a chicken leg from the table and you give "drop it" command. They run away with it with no intention of obeying and ears completely on top of head.

    Hahaha! I have seen these descriptive ears too! She perks hers up when you ask her a question, and cups them back when she's in trouble!

    yup, that is Moses exactly! He also will flatten only one back while the other is relaxed if he wants to be defiant LOL, also stiff and leaning them forward when he is seriously focused on something.

    LOL! I have never ever seen the evil ears! That is way funny!

    I love the cup ears. Zoe does that when we get home from somewhere, does it more for SU though.
