|I've heard this. I looked into as well and as far as I can tell, Poms all genetically have the same face, but because of certain breeding, some may have shorter muzzles or eyes a little closer together. Some looking more fox like, some with smaller features and a flatter looking face. I don't care what the pom looks like, I love them all!
I do believe BYB use those terms to sell puppies at a higher price. Using teddy bear face often..
As for throwbacks, I don't think they occur enough for them to be considered a separate standard. The current standard I believe is 4-7 lbs. with 5-6 being the preference, and all poms are still considered poms if they are a little under or above the standard. =] I also asked this thinking they'd be considered one of their larger spitz cousins, but apparently not, lol.
