That dog is a perfectly normal sized GSD, I'm really not sure why the big push to keep posting pics where he looks like a giant? It's great that he's normal sized. He'll live a longer, happier, healthier life because of it.
I don't think so, who would have a doorknob at 24"? You'd have to bend down to open the door. It just looks low to the ground from perspective from a very large dog having its picture taken from above and from the top of the door not being present in the photo. And in another photo of stig there was a door in the picture and the door knob was in a normal location and stig's head was still level or higher than it.

And I don't know what happened to the photo because I could have sworn it was 800x600 when I viewed it.

Our doorknob is 37". Stig looks to be a good 8-10" below the doorknob (if I remember correctly)
Making him 28-29".

And yes, my pic was 800-600

I saw other pictures of stig where he did look very tall. I made the comment that he looked like a great Dane.

I don't see what was so bad about what Rerun said. They just gave an opinion. And certainly nothing to make you leave the forum. It's just one persons opinion.

Now don't get mad at me too but I didn't think your dog looked to be 121lbs either. My dog is currently 114lbs due to reason I won't go into here.
He had topped out at 120lbs and was overweight (still is).
And he looks WAY bigger than Stig. And Gunner is about 28-29 inches.

Stig looks fabulous though, regardless of what he weighs.
And I'm sure you are right in what he weighs, but he just doesn't look that heavy (in my opinion).

Repost it. Maybe it was just an error.

If they were from Photobucket then I can see there being issues. It's happened to me a lot lately.
I resize them and they still post at the old size. It's a photobucket problem.

There's some new mods, maybe some of them are eyeballing it instead of checking the image info to see if the image is 800x600? I have a really massive monitor so even 800x600 pictures look MASSIVE to me, and I can see how someone could think that the picture is bigger than 800x600. Or if I view pictures on my netbook everything looks way too big for the screen .

Or perhaps a moderator had an old image cashed or something. I don't know, but I'm so sure it was 800x600 because I was fiddling around with it in MSpaint trying to measure Stig.

I thought doorknobs were more standardized but I guess they aren't. Ours are 38" from the floor.
