    Minnie weighed in at the vet last visit at 18.5 pounds. She's 9 months old! Where did the time go? I don't think she's any taller than 15 inches. How do your pups compare?

    How many weeks? Should be somewhere around 40, right? Siri tells me 39.13 weeks when I ask - lol!

    I had weighed and measured Brodie at 40 weeks and he was 15" and 19.8 lbs. He is currently at 25 lbs and about 15 1/2 inches. He does need to lose a pound or two. He is not chubby, but compared to the pics I saw of Willow walking yesterday, she is trimmer than he is. Seems like Minnie will not be small - she should be just within the lines of being in-size.

    Coop is also 9 months...the ying and yang lol. He weighs 30 lbs. and is 17 1/2” I believe. What can I say an over achiever. lol. Minnie sounds much like our first Sheltie, petite.

    Cassie is about 13 inches and is all of 12 lbs. She's 13 months now. And she still looks like a leggy coyote.

    River is 18 months around 15" and 18 pounds. I think he continued to bulk up a bit after a year old. Was 17 pounds and change at a year. He isn't fat, you can feel his ribs. Probably depends on when Minnie stops growing.

    Karen, all six of my dogs weigh between 19 and 22 pounds, which is the correct weight for their height. The standard calls for Shelties in size to be between 13 and 16 inches. You have a perfect Sheltie! :biggrin2:

    Perfect Minnie!! Minnie and Sandstorm do look cute together- big and small, and Minnie looks so small next to him!

    It seems so, but she looks so small compared to Sandstorm, he's 19 inches and 34 pounds
