|His parents both has stick straight ears. Max is 6 lbs and has tiny triangle ears. Sophie is 13 lbs and has big ears but they've always been stick straight since we got her. She was 11 and a half weeks when we got her though. Brodie's Sister Piper always had stick straight ears, but his other sister Jazz didn't get straight ears till almost 9 weeks. Wayne has tiny straight ears and got them between 7 and 8 weeks. But all of them except Piper started out with flopy ears.
When Brodie puts his ears back, he has complete control, and you can see he's trying to get them up when his ears would 'normally' go up when he's surprised etc. They just kind of flop over in the dead middle Not that he isn't WAY adorable, the little stinker has a firm grip on both my heart AND my hubby's
But it just made me wonder. Poms are suppose to have erect, foxlike ears. He is a pom, no doubt about it, but his floppy ears somewhat take away that pom like look. He's still gorgeous though! I love how he has cream colored cheeks! I wonder if he'll lighten up into a cream like his daddy
