Where do I measure to get his hight? And I think that's the problem with his leg and making him limpHe looks tall and lanky. My pup has a similar build, but I think your dog looks taller, hard to tell with pictures. Anyway mine was 53 pounds at 6 months and is 67 pounds at 9 months.
I literally had the same "you must be joking" thought when I read the umbrella comment and then wham today NYC got socked with rain and whaddayaknowwww Hudson is a snooty little pooch now and WOULD NOT POTTY in the rain I couldn't help but crack up thinking about the OP serves me right, but I hate umbrellas so Hudson had a big day of learning to pee in the rain. LOLDon't create a future headache, STOP with the umbrella now! When you baby your dog, you're setting yourself up for much agony in the future! Instead make him tough, make him resilient, make him confident!
This applies to all areas, not just the rain!
Your dog will grow up to be a product of his environment, genetics plays a HUGE role, but the environment is key to make the dog all he can be!
Force the little twit outside in the rain, and snow if you get that. Make him hike too far with too little water, make him walk farther than he wants to, make him go without food sometimes a little longer than he's used to....make him tough!
You'll be glad you did for years >
