Question Ears?

Someone asked about eye shapes. Well, all the different ear descriptions have always thrown me, especially the Terriers. Like, what in the world is a "rose ear?"

Good question Renee!!

I've always like the ears part of the Pemmie standard -

Quote:
Ears-Erect, firm, and of medium size, tapering slightly to a rounded point. Ears are mobile, and react sensitively to sounds. A line drawn from the nose tip through the eyes to the ear tips, and across, should form an approximate equilateral triangle. Bat ears, small catlike ears, overly large weak ears, hooded ears, ears carried too high or too low, are undesirable. Button, rose or drop ears are very serious faults.
Not very many breeds mention the ears moving and reacting to sounds.

Oh Renee, I think "rose" ears are the ones that are facing forward and don't stand at all, they do kind of look like a rose petal?

Bat Dog says "What about mah eahrz?"



Hehe...

When I hear "Rose ear" I think of Greyhounds and some other hounds whose ear carriage is folded onto their head - so when you look at them it looks abit like a rose.

Ok - just found this:
Quote:
Rose (folded) ears, small in size and when unfolded, triangular in shape. Emphasis is put on ear form because a major cosmetic trait distinguishing the windhounds is in the form of the ear. Breeders who empahsize the conformation ring are quite intolerant of dogs with stiff upstanding ears.

So, Tallulah's ears, with the kind of double fold thing going on, is that what's meant by a "rose ear?" Or is that something else?



Whens she's holding them more to the sides the folds are more apparent, but sometimes they just fold over forward.

She has ears like Lily right? They kind of wing out to the side but sometimes are facing forward and floppy? Lily has a half standing ear (the flying nun style like in my siggie) but when she was a little puppy, and I'll be damned if I can find a pic, she has rose ears...but yeah the first pic you posted shows a rose ear, though they usually lay flatter...

Like this dog -

Maybe Tallulah has multiple personality ears, lol!

They're often like this, which, from what I'm hearing, is the rose ear?



And then there's this

These are considered rose ears.

Tallulah has some sort of cross between a rose ear and half-prick ear it looks like, but I'd say mostly rose. I am no ear expert thought.

Wow, that corgi one sure is unique.
