Oh I'm not worried about it at all. Slow and steady wins the good hips and elbows race.
Plus it's just that much longer that I can actually hold him in my arms. I knew he was the smallest male in his litter but I just recently found out he was tied for runt with his sister. It shows in his attitude.

Did anybody find a height chart?

I'm looking at a puppy that is 13 1/2 weeks old. Her paws are ginormous! I don't know how much she weighs--she looks a little underweight--so I thought that height might be a better way to compare her to other GSD puppies. She's probably about 18" tall at the withers.

Anybody have height measurements for their dogs at 3 months of age?!?

This spreedsheet was great. I thought Quincy was going to be off the chart huge, He also has giganic feet. Still he is just over the norm for his age.

Niki, do a Google search for Open Office. It's a free office package that does pretty much what Microsoft Office does. It has a spreadsheet program, word processor, presentation application and even a decent database. It will open all MS Office files with the exception of the newest 2007 stuff.

I use it when I'm not at work. My only beef with it is the speed. It could be a bit faster...

Poor Jack is going to have a complex
23" is a good height for his age, he's actually better than an inch taller than my pup whos a bit older. Thin isn't bad for this breed, it's much easier to put weight on than it is to take it off. My female (she's 24") was 58lbs until she was about 4 - now she's 68lbs and finally looks filled out.

Kathy, have you read the ears discussions? They provide a wealth of info & suggestions for helping floppy ears. I know there are dogs whose ears weren't up til past 6 mos, but IF it's important to you, it's something to move on now rather than later.

Thin, healthy dogs aren't fashionable, but they often have real health advantages over the bulkier individuals. I will never, ever worry that a healthy, active dog is too thin.

Just a note on ears - Luther is 8 months and still doesn't have good strong ears. We went back and forth about whether or not to tape/breathe-rite/whatever and finally decided to let him be what he will be. His ears are still improving at this age and are both up more and more as time goes on. I don't know if they will ever be up always and really strong, but they continue to improve and at this point they are up about as often as not.

There's a height chart in the growth/developement forum on this site. It's very cool. It's the only one I have been able to find anywhere.

This is a good time to switch if you have been on puppy formulas. I switched Kayla to adult around 6 months and Lancer was always on "adult" food. Many here do not use puppy formulas at all.
