Oh okay, will pay attention to the distance of the ear and the upper side ^^ but please only do this if your file is in better quality or if the old picture really is unacceptable cutted
the reason why i cut it like that is because the "most important point" (his face) should be shown as most notable, to make it look good to the observer. the tail and the legs are not that important, thats why i mostly cut it very near to it. (not in this pictures case because of the grass over his feet). I mean, they sure are important too, but this should'nt be the fucusal point.
Haha, just wanted to tell you what i learned in school xD it's everyones own decision how to cut a picture ^^
