Ears up

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?


  1. beyond adorable what ever that word would be, sooo cute up or down, but i am with you and vote for UP. i am thinking he is tricking you

  2. Duke is adorable no matter what and yep, he's a smarty too. He knows what to do for treats :D

  3. I'm pretty sure it's on purpose so he'll get a treat. It's working isn't it? Yep, it is.

    Have a terrific day. My very best to handsome Duke (ears up or down). :)

  4. Duke looks so different with his ears down. I didn't think he could relax them so. He can do anything :) Enjoy your treat, Duke!

  5. I think that is what is called 'playing you'.... yup... that Duke knows what he is doing! :)
    xo Catherine

  6. Duke looks so different with his ears down! Sadie puts hers down the second I reach for my camera. Maybe Duke's treat trick will work for her too.

  7. Ears down or ears up, he still is that cute little buddy! LOL

  8. I totally agree, he's much cuter with his ears up!

  9. He is adorable any way he wants to put those furry little ears! : Rebecca said he should marry Ginger! hehe

  10. Oh, he looks very different with his ears down!!! Wow. But I agree--he is much cuter with them up.

  11. Well, shucks! I didn't know they could put their ears down. He looks like a different dog.

  12. :P yes definitely - Ears up Duke you handsome fellow!

  15. Hi Ann, Duke is adorable both with ears up and ears down... However, I do think he's cuter with ears UP.....

    Glad you are spoiling him...I'm sure he loved that little treat.

  16. So so cute!! "Ears up, Duke!" I like that!!
    Blessings to you both!

  17. Cute trick! He looks very funny with his ears down ;-)

  18. Yes, and I always fall for it, too.

  19. Looks like he really enjoys his 'down time'!

  20. Duke you are looking good. Keep the tricks coming and the treats will follow.Sometimes Claudia just gives me that I need a treat look.

  21. We were just having this conversation about Louis over the weekend! I said to TEN "I don't notice other westies having their ears laying down flat, do you? I wonder if there is something wrong with Louis' ears!"

    So glad to hear that he isn't the only one who "let's his ears down". I can't wait to tell TEN :)

  22. Well - I must say he is a lot cuter with his ears up. With them down - he looks bald!

  23. He's Gorgeous Anyway we can get him Ann!!!

  24. I do believe little Duke had you totally sussed...treats all round!!!! :-)

  25. I have never seen Duke with his ears down. He is almost as cute as with his ears up. I do like him a little better I think with ears up. Great pictures and sure glad you got some treats for your trouble Duke.
