Default Do chi's stretch their ears?

Butterbean has this funny little stretching routine she does in the mornings. She stretches front and back legs, of course. And her neck. And at one point, her ears flare way out and quiver like she's stretching them too!

It sure sounds like that is what Butterbean is doing. I have not see Ike do this yet, but it makes sense, to get your ear in order for the day.

Otis does that first thing in the morning. He sleeps in the bed with me and when he gets out from under the cover he does the same thing. I wasn't sure what was going on with his ears the first time he did that. I thought maybe the cover was heavy on his head and watched him like a hawk the entire day and he was fine. The next day was the same routine of stretching and his ears were doing the same thing. When he wakes up in the morning he has the droopy ears until he does his routine how funny

I've never noticed the ears with Max but he does have a morning stretching ritual that he has to complete before he can do anything else. It's very cute

Given that I am a yoga fan for my own health, I love how well Lady and Prince do downward and upward dog! Not sure I have seen then stretch their ears but it sound possible.

Mine does this too! It's so cute to watch-quite a morning ritual.
