Funny that TC mentioned the a dog's nose is similar to a bear's nose. I had a hard time and still do when I started doing bears is getting the nose right because it is the focal point of the carving. One day it hit me that a dog's nose is the same basic shape as a dog's nose . I can't do a nose right with a saw I have to get out the angle grinder with the flap wheel and shape it into place using that instead of the saw. I haven't experimented much but I also see the same basic cuts that go into making a bears head can also be used in making the head of a pig , dog , rabbits and other critters. You just have to shape it accordingly.
