When we are relaxing we say we are letting our hair down. I don't know if relaxing is what he's doing or not but sometimes Duke lets his ears down.
Not that he isn't still cute but I think he looks much more handsome with his ears up. So I'll look at him and say "Ears up Duke".
That's my handsome little guy.
Just for that you get a treat.
Hmm, I wonder if he does that on purpose just to trick me into giving him a snack?
