Well what started out to be a nightmare, has turned into a success story.  

On the day Fargo turned 12 weeks old, he had his ears cropped.   Two weeks later they were put up into posts.   4 1/2 days later I took them out of the posts because I noticed some black slimy goo coming out from under the tape.   After cleaning them, I left them down for 7 days.   Then I wrapped them for another 4 days.  After that I took them out again for 5 days.   Then posted again for 4 days.    I again took them out on Jan. 9th and have not put them back up.    He was only in posts for a total of 12 1/2 days.  They have been staning perfectly ever since.   He has started teething, so I will watch for any signs of his ears drooping.   But so far so good.  

I know there is and always will be controversy over ear cropping and tail docking, but for me, it was my preference and I am very happy with the outcome.    Fargo, in my opinion, did not suffer.   He was a happy, playful puppy all the way through.   I am pleased with the outcome and could not love my boy more.   He is now 18 weeks old.

Would love to see before and after photos... Sofia came to us cropped and docked and all grown up, so I have absolutely no experience in this area.. I just love the difference in the faces, demeanor and over all changes post crop...P.S. Love the name 'Fargo.'
