I had my pups ears in posts off and on for about 3 weeks now. they were down only for cleaning and airing and changing of posts. Today I took the posts out for cleaning and to my surprise up they went. Her right ear one is only stood for a short time 10 min. or so but the left ear stood great. She had total control over it. But the problem is it leaned towards her other ear almost like it was sitting on her head. So after cleaning and letting them air for 2 hours I reposted them this time in more of a angle than stright. Is this something to worry about?

It is not unusual while posting to have an ear lean more inward that straight when the Dobe is alert. It is not something to be overly concerned with as it generally corrects itself at the end of posting. If you have one ear that tends to lay outward, and the other stands nicely or even leans inward, you might want to consider posting just the ear that leans outward for a week (after the resting period when neither ear is posted for a day or so).

Posting only one ear is a little difficult for many times we brace the two ears with a tape brace across the top. Now you know why I was so absolutely amazed when Princess' ears stood after being posted only 1 week. Most of mine I had to post at least 5 and most 6 weeks.

Cutting and pasting the URL into a new tab works. Shaylah looks good and the posting looks good. Is that how she is currently posted?

There are two methods of posting photos on this website.

1) Post a URL link that a member/visitor can click on and bring the photo up. That is apparently what you tried to do. However, on this site to post a hyper link, you click on the hyperlink button. That putton is the third icon from the left in the row above the smiley faces (the one that looks like a page with the world. Clicking on that gives you a url in square brackets followed by and a /url in square brackets. The first one starts the hyperlink and the second one ends it. The cursor is in the middle. You then copy/paste or type the hyperlink in between.

2) Open an account on a photo pasting site such as photobucket and upload the photo to them. Then when the photo is posted mouse over the photo and 4 lines of linking open up like this:

Click on words (IMG Code) on the fourth line, and a yellow box will briefly appear and say "Copied" and then you come back to the browser tab with this site, put your cursor where you want the picture and right click and the codes for the link to the image will appear. This puts the opening IMG in square brackets, the hyperlink and the closing /img in square brackets. If the photo posting site (such as facebook) does not work this way, click on the second icon from the left above the smiley faces. This with give you the opening and closing img codes with the cursor in the middle. Then simply paste or type the hyperlink codes inbetween.

To fix the above link. First, click on modify and then put your cursor between the "a" of shayla and the "h" of http. Then insert a left square bracket followed by IMG and then a right square bracket. Then at the end of the hyperlink code, enter a left square bracket followed by the forward slash / and then img and then the right square bracket. Then preview and see if the image appears.

Although it's hard to see detail in a small picture, they look good.

One thing you need to watch out for if the ear is leaning in towards the other is that you are not developing a pocket or crease. If it is a pocket they need to be posted just a little bit different.
