    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?" :confused:

    Good question Renee!!

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

    Not very many breeds mention the ears moving and reacting to sounds. :D

    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?"

    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:

    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?

    [​IMG]

    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.

    Tallulah has Meg ears. They are without a doubt the best kind, because if you don't like the way they look, they will change within a few minutes!

    I've always thought rose ears were like the one on the sighthound as well.

    This is more of a half prick
    [​IMG]

    And this is more of a rose
    [​IMG]

    Strider has rose ears, which is correct for a borzoi. Most sighthounds have them. They greyhound pic bigpoodle posted is a perfect example of a rose ear.

    A lot of sighthounds will also hold their ears at half prick when at attention, like when a bunny is zooming by the fence ;)

    The puppy on the left in this picture also has rose ears

    LOL! And sometimes one of each :D I love her ears -- I'm so glad she wasn't cropped. Some dogs look amazing with a crop, but I love the personality of most Pittie ears.

    Little miss Phoebe has the rose ears too :) Hers NEVER fold forward. This is how they are 24/7 She can perk them for noses and such, but they just raise slightly and that's it.

    Bounce and Dash's ears are rose ears. (and the previous example was good too)

    [​IMG]

    the whippet on the left is trying to prick its rose ears up (doesn't work so well) the one on the right isn't.

    My personal favourite are prick ears, like Buster's. His are so strong I can't even fold them inside out, I love them.

    Sophie has Rose Ears, they suit her down the ground. I'm guessing she probably got them from the boxer in her.

    And Harry's just fold straight over. They suit him perfectly.

    Teeny has PERFECT rose ears
    [​IMG]

    Blue has rose ears as well, though his aren't long enough, IMHO, to be perfect ;)
    [​IMG]
    He looks more like the Flying Nun!


    I'm wicked picky about ears. I can't STAND drop ears in my breed. Drives me out of my mind. Of course the sire to Teeny's litter has one rose and one drop. I'm crossing my fingers for all rose!!!
