    Default The dog's ears dropped

    When a dog lowers its ears in sadness or something, can I say that "The dog's ears dropped" or "The dog dropped its ears"? May be there are any other verbs which will be more appropriate?

    Default Re: The dog's ears dropped

    "Drooped" works better.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
