One ear valiantly tried to to remain upright, but kept flopping over with each new head tilt, bouncy run, or playful movement. The other ear remained comfortably in its puppy flop for now.
German shepherd puppy ears are a sight to behold, as they make their transition from goofy puppy stage to regal adult status. I love catching puppies at this wonderful time in their lives, as they romp, play, learn, and grow, so I was thrilled when Heike’s owners commissioned photographs for a puppyhood album. I photographed her over the course of several weeks during her Puppy Training Camp stay with me at Sierra Dogs in Placerville, and as you can see, her ears tell the story of her journey from puppyhood into adolescence, and give us a glimpse into the adult she will become.
