I like it. I mean, if I was a breeder I wouldn't say I like it enough to keep linebreeding on Ursus specifically for this trait, but all things equal I personally prefer big, wide head, maybe even what some would say is too big/wide (neither of my males have heads like this though, hence why I say "all thing equal" I'd take the nice head). I'm picky about ears too and I like Rocket's better than Nikon's.

Ursus von Batu?

For female heads I always loved Nike's head.

At 2.5.


And at 9



I never liked Vala's as much. Her muzzle is a bit narrower than her mother's.

At 2


and at 6



But then Deja's head reminds me of both (mom and grandma).

And for a boy, Mr. Handsome (Navarre, Vala's brother) who I always felt had a very masculine without being too big boy head.







And it fit his body.



And he is just a really cool dog.

Months ago I said on this same thread that the only thing I didn't like of Akela's head was the loose lips, but someone about then told me he may outfrow those. Luckily he did.

Really I don't know how "correct" his head is according the standard, I just love it as it is and I can't ask for better.

Saw the pictures Lisa posted, followed her link, and all I can say is be still my heart regarding Donovan zu Treuen Händen TR1 AD who should definitely have his head shot here, imo.

My fellow has droopy flews at the moment- and I do hope we have the same outcome as Catu in that regard. But I love Huxley's head - he has almost finished growing into his ears



He had this noble look to his face even as a silly puppy

I really love Puppy's head. I am tremendously biased, but she has grown to be such a beautiful girl. Her head, in my completely biased opinion, is girly, expressive, but has that broader, blockier shape that I like. Her eyes are always soft, and she always has a sappy expression for me when we cuddle.

Almost a year old:



A little past a year old:



15 months:



Capable of a multitude of expressions, always feminine, always pretty. Please ignore the light nose...her nose is dark, but she has been rubbing the ground with it lately. She does it in the winter for some strange reason.

From the side:

GrammaD, I actually think I posted Donovan on here earlier in the thread (this is an older thread), but here he is again.

With all of his bling.



From the front. I don't like his ear set. Too much like his mom's.



Ball?



And with his brother Drigon who has the better ear set.
