...or, Another Way To Make Blaiseshimmer Panic... Hi everyone, resident newbie here. I need to try to get some decent pictures of my puppy Kelby (since most of the ones I have consist of him covered in leaves/dirt/unknown smelly stuff). His ear training is still a nightmare since he and his minion, Tal, are becoming very efficient in removing the glue/tape/braces from his ears at least twice a week (<another topic for another thread) But I tried to measure him this weekend. My DH, bless him, is still pretty helpless when it comes time to do anything to this puppy, and Kel knows it; will start whimpering and wailing and poof! DH lets him go. BUT...I try to measure him, and after several tries, I *think* I got a height measurement (still need to try again since DH also wasn't that firm in holding the pup steady). According to pretty much every chart I can find, he's borderline OS. I will admit that the only time I DID measure him was at 9 weeks where he was just a hair over 9". I know that he still has a bit of growing to do, but wonder just how much? At 18 weeks, I got a measurement of 13.25" and I am not sure if I should worry or not, since we are still in the beginning, rose-colored-glasses stages of taking him to conformation shows. To his credit, this puppy has had some weird growth spurts the past few weeks, some days looking like his head shrunk into his neck, his body seemed stretched out the next day, and right now he's full into his Ugly Coyote stage (longish legs). He also started teething. I know that, like human boys, the males could just shoot up in height, then stop, but I was curious as to whether or not this growth spurt will slow down within the next month or two. DH is already setting up an agility course in case this guy decides to go oversized.<can't blame the guy for having a Plan B. Though I don't have to guess who'll be the one running around an agility course with the dog... His sire is 14", his dam under 15".
