ear crop issues

for those whose dogs have ear crops, do they stay up straight at ALL times?
or dot hey flop over sometimes depending on their expressions or mood?

cuz most of the time bodhi's ears are standing straight and sometimes they flop when he gets startled.

im posting 3 days on, 2 days off. so on those 2 days off they tend to flop sometimes. The doc said that as he gets older more blood pressure will get to his ears making them stand better.

Why aren't you leaving the posts in at all times?

Ruby's ears never 'flop', she can fold them down, but that's it.

I would leave them posted until they are healed or they may end up looking very bad....

oh no no, sorry i guess i was vague in my description, i suppose they flop, they don't flop on their own, he can make them flop on his own, or bend them back but they don't do it without his control.... if that makes sense, the vet told me to post them 3 days and take them off for 2-3 days and do it again until they stand by themselves... they told me it could take up to 6 weeks, im not to worried about that, but i just wanted to make sure if it was ok...
