So true. We make sure that she's got TONS of chew toys when she's outside in our side yard/dog run, and at night we also try to make sure that she's got something new enough that she's not bored with it. She really likes the pork femur bones, will chew then down in no time.


Also, your point about walks is good. We like to take the dogs to a local school and put the 40' lead on her and let the kids and the dogs just run and run an run. They seem to perk up when they run, so between those things and good food, I know they'll come back up when she's done teething.


I thought they were up for good though! Maybe next time.

Back up. Ha ha


She's just over 5 months old (about 23 weeks), and they are just coming back up now in what is hopefully the last time. One has been tall and proud for a number of weeks now, but the other has been pretty floppy and occasionally up. She's lost a few baby teeth the last few weeks, and seems to have most of her adult teeth in. I'm not sure if they are all in, but there are quite a few adult teeth in now.


I'm posting this just to show the timelines with my puppy, as others will be different.


Here's a picture from last night, it's all good!

Thank you, I smile when I look at her. There's something so neat about a big (eventually), powerful dog who is also so sweet and affectionate.


We all love our sweet dogs, don't we?

Shoot, I'm trying to remember. I think the last time I weighed her she was around 43lb, if I remember correctly. I don't remember exactly when that was, but it was probably sometime around the 5 month mark.


I can weigh her when I get home and post that up. She's starting to get big enough that she gets really wiggly when I hold her and step on a scale.


I'm amazed at how quickly they go from looking like a puppy to looking like a miniature version of a big dog. That might sound silly, but lots of dogs have more of a middle stage, and GSD's seem like they go from a puppy to looking like a small full grown dog really quickly. I love it.


CindyMDBecker, I think she frustrates our other dog. lol Not in a bad way, but the way a puppy bugs an older dog that doesn't want to play all of the time. As they are getting to know each other and as she gets older and slows down just a little bit, I think it's helping their relationship.

nono you dont have to do that. unless you want to find out for your records

yes they do grow fast. i have a 5m old too and i anticipated that he will transform into an adult in a blink of an eye so i purchased a good camcorder before i even brought the puppy home

whenever i play the tapes of just couple months before, it amazes me how much he's changed. you dont really feel that since you always see your dog grow in front of you but when you see pictures or videos, it's an eye opener
