    Default Howard's Ears

    So looking at all the adorable EB pictures on here, I'm noticing that Howard is a bit different (not any less adorable though ). His ears seem much bigger and droopier than the other EBs. I googled it and I guess EBs are supposed to have rosebud ears which he does not seem to have at all. I know he's still a puppy and the position of his ears can change, but even so, it looks like his ears are HUGE. And I'm sure they won't shrink lol. So what do you all think? Is my cutie pie just not the breed standard? Of course I'm going to love him just the same and I think his ears are cute. But curious anyway. Here is a pic of him the other day on the shelf of our coffee table - one of his favorite spots. He is 12 weeks old.-img_6626-jpg

    Aww he's a cutie! I heard a lot of breaders actually glue the ears into a rosebud when they are pups to train the ears that way. I think most of them the ears seem to naturally go that way.

    Howard is a cutie and his little head will change several times before he gets full grown, and should grow into his ears. He is such a handsome boy.
