Yep. She is a MONSTER. Hopefully the gaining will ease up shortly.

She has grown 8 inches in height and gained 29 lbs in 10 weeks.

Re: Height chart

Finally I have Internet connection again! Here's the updated chart for the puppy heights.

Thanks to everybody for your perseverance






23 males and only 8 females. Where are the females?

Re: Height chart

Looks great!
I wonder where all the girls are too. Ok so I have one girl and two boys, that tips it off a little.
Looks like she is quiet a bit taller than the other female at 6 months. And here I was thinking she was a little short. lol

Re: Height chart

Thanks for doing that, I'm going to quote it when everyone says Otto is going to be huge. According to the chart my boy is short, just like his sire, short but built like a dumptruck.

Re: Height chart

I have to make a correction with the males chart. There are several pups who are already out of the standard, so I took them off. Nothing personal against them, please, but to be a reference we need to work with pups only within it, the same I'll do with pups too small than the rest of their peers. I'm not being statistic accurate with this chart, it's not scientific at all, but it is sort of the standard deviation I'm taking off.

Re: Height chart

Well if you are only using dogs that are within the standard, you may as well take Siren off now. She is 22 1/2 inches tall and isn't quite 5 months old yet. She won't be HUGE, but I would imagine she will be over 23+ inches as an adult.
Both of her parents are "average" sized.

Re: Height chart

Not meant as criticism but just trying to understand the purpose here? And you certainly know more about this than I do, but....

Don't we want to represent the whole population contributing? And then maybe copare that to the standard?

Seems if we're going to restrict to those "within the standard" then why do a chart. Aren't there already charts showing the standard? (Or maybe do both?)

And BTW, I think it's great you're doing this. Thank you.
