When my 5 and a half month old walks I can hear him coming 2 rooms away. It's kind of cluck, clunk, clunk and there he is. I remember my last few GSDs being more stealthy, anyone have this happen? If so why?

Eiros LOL!!! These responses are hilarious!

My pup is the same though... He throws himself to the ground with a PLOP! He's pretty quiet but if he's playing or romping around, it's like a herd of elephants!

I'm glad Fawn isn't the only pup who plops! When I ask her for a "down" she throws herself on the floor like she's hitting the deck.

Lol..my bandit does the same thing. Should have named him plopper.

Ellimaybel That's cute Gunther trips over his own feet from time to time. I'm worried he's going to break something one day. It's cute when they are in the phase where they are learning how to manage their own bulk and weight. Gunther used to hit his head on the underside of the coffee table every single time he got off of the couch. Sometimes when he shakes his toy he bonks his head into the piano or wall. I worry a little less each day.
