I posted until Diesel was about 6 months. You'll definitely see a difference the older they as the cartilage hardens and the ears are finally able to stand up.
I remember Diesel's ear was stood up for 2 maybe 3 weeks straight then it slightly dropped and I posted one more time and after that he was good. Aside from that, the only other problem I had with posting was that one ear kept flopping while the other stood erect...I just kept posting and eventually it worked out.
Sometimes and it this depends on how they sleep, the ears are floppy when they wake up (I'm referring to when the posts are out)...I just massage it for a good 5 mins and it eventually stood up. So massage massage massage...it helps a great deal.
Also, I kept Diesel alert by making high pitched sounds, calling him or just plain getting his attention...its sorta helps the ears stand the more they perk up.
Do PM Monica like Gary said...she's got great advice on this stuff.

Hello fellow Q litter "parents". I decided it was about time I figured out how to get onto the forum (lol) and show off some pics of my boy Quinn - the surprise red pup and last born. (hope I got thse loaded on properly because I am a complete klutz with computers) Quinn was my retirement present to myself last fall and has kept me on my toes ever since. He is my first Dobe and quite a little character. We plan to join the upcoming classes at Monica's soon so I am looking forward to meeting some of you and revisiting Quinn's littermates. Have only seen Kaia recently and Quinn had a good play with her.

Dobereich: So about the BBQ, does anyone have a preference to Sat or Sun? Once we nail down a day I can invite others.

Andreina: I like Saturday just because I don't have to rush home for work on a sunday
Aug 12, 2014 20:53:49 GMT -5
Dobereich: I think either day is OK for me, although the weather could be a big indicator.
Aug 12, 2014 20:57:50 GMT -5
Andreina: Yeah, true well we are open and I think everyone else is too? So maybe set for Sat and if the weather is bad we move to sunday?
Aug 12, 2014 20:59:57 GMT -5
Dobereich: ya, we could do that.

Dobereich: So far the weather is calling for 24 both days, no rain... but honestly, they can't predict a day ahead of time, I'm not trusting a 2 week forecast. LOL
