I like to have enough DOF so everything I want the viewer to focus on is in focus.  In this thread I have agree with MAC.

BUT it seems your 135 is front focusing and thats why the f5.6 and higher are sharper. In the 2.2 shot the back half of the dog is not sharp but the snow in front of dog is.  If it nailed the focus the 2.2 and the 2.0 would be very nice.

How in the world do you get your dog to stand still that long, my dane will turn her head the minute she see's me point my camera at her I just about got the perfect shot once, was in the back yard testing my new sigma 50-150 and turned and saw her watching something.  I hit the shutter release and got one shot and before I had a chance to adjust the zoom, she turned and it was all gone.

Say hi to Ella

She was 8 then which is very old for a Dane, she is still with us
