Wow, you guys, I have not seen so many nice looking dogs all in one place.... They just keep coming!   Maybe one day Monty will hold still long enough for me to get a shot that's a good one  

 

Steve those are great shots of your dogs and that handler of yours - you can post him anytime ;-)

Okay, I LOVE good heads on all the Mastiffs shown, but I have noticed that (in some cases) a great head is traded off for a terrible rear. Take Ivan for example (COLE and Nancy, read on....). He has a gorgeous head and he moves beautifully. In other cases, I have seen beautiful heads on a Mastiff, yet the poor thing couldn't move worth a flip. BALANCE, is where we need to be going with this breed. Sorry Nancy and Cole, didn't mean to give you a heart-attack!! lol...Ivan is one of my favorites!!

For anyone that knows me, this headshot is gonna freak you out.  This is really me, before I shaved my head(and 40 lbs ago).  Just a little inside humor.  LOL

Okay, is that really you or a joke..... If its you - we might have to start a new thread for yours and Steve's nogins  so we can evaluate.  Steve, can you provide us with some info on human skull anatomy - I guess we'll need to evaluate and assign points to the eyes, lips, nose, skin - oh and definitely expression!!  Hams!

With that said - back to dogs.  I have tossed aside that slow moving digital and reconvened with my 33mm (film) camera.  I took a roll of Monty today - maybe I got some good shots of his doggy nogin that I can share.

 

On the subject of wrinkle - do the dogs get more wrinkle as they get older?  If so, when can you expect their wrinkle to hit full maturity?  I had to keep making very weird noises to get Monty to look at me in a way that got some wrinkle (not sure it worked...), but he's a babe still!

Dari's head is beautiful and when I see it I think that is the type of wrinkle and similar look that Monty will most likely mature into.  The puppies are adorable!

Okay all, I'm having a bit of a "wrinkle" fixation. 

 

Questions - suffice it to say that the more wrinkly the puppy head, the more wrinkly that same adult head would be?

There is no axiom which can guide you. At times, as the head grows wrinkle can fade, or it can become more prevalent! Look at the sire & dam for guidance.
