Neat visual, Reggin!

From that... I like the show crop, and the rose ear (fig 8). I'm slightly leaning towards the rose ear, but I appreciate a *good* crop on any cropped breed.

Morado Dobermans... and Talla the Mexidog too! (group photo pending)

In general, I'm a fan of natural ears and tails. I especially love natural ears on Boxers! Although I can't help but admire the way Dobes look when they're cropped and docked... they just appear to be so much sleeker and elegant.

i think most bull & mastiff breeds look better w/ a short crop and most look better docked as well. all terriers look better docked & most smooth ones look good cropped. i think most sighthound breeds would look more attractive w/ a long crop except the IW would look good w/a short crop. the long crop would make them look kind of feral.
scent hounds & curs are the only types i think all look better natural.

A video so you can see a rottie with a full tail in action (better than any photo).

Also a cool vid.....

I like shorter ears mostly, which is partly why I picked a dog with short ears to begin with. I don't much care if a dog is cropped or docked if it's done right, though I LOVE pitties with rose ears. Oh my goodness. They are irresistable. I love uncropped dobes, but then I am a hound person so that is probably why they appeal to me.
