Buffy's ears didn't open until she was a little over 3 weeks old. Don't be tooworried about it at this point. I'm sure they will open :)

LOL maybe because they're born with their ears closed to? (I just found that out and thought it was really interesting.)

Or maybe because you've caught our "crazy bug" that's going around. I know I have it... lots of others do too. :D

thanks for the info. I never knew their ears were closed when they were born either; his opened up within 2-3 days(and boy are they GROWING). I never had puppies before so I'm really excited about him. It's almost like when I had my son, exciting/scary/nervous and happy all at once!

The average puppy's eyes open between 12 and 15 days of age ...The ear's open about 2 days later....Small breed dogs have a tendency to develop faster and ahve been known to open their eyes as early as 8 days
