I thought that it would never happen. Grimm is my first dog I've gotten as a puppy. He's always been slab-slided, somewhat narrow-chested when standing, and had always had a sharp ridge of a "keel"-- the place on the thorax midline where the ribs meet.
Well, I was grooming Grimm the other night and noticed something. His "keel" is getting a wee bit broader, flatter, a bit wider.
I believe his head has gotten just a tiny bit wider in the last few months. Thought I'd maybe imagined it.
His choke collar isn't as hugely loose as it was. It's still loose, but not so much.
And-- he is now getting hard to keep weight on. This is new. He is raw fed. But now, I need to add an extra (small) meal or he loses weight and ribs stick out too much.
Grimm just turned 3 and Czech lines mature slowly, especially the males. I just wanted to hear other's experiences as their dogs developed through late adolesence! (and I sure hope he will eat less again once he's all filled out!)
