At 14mos. Simba is growing up. I noticed over the weekend that her puppy face/head are disappearing and she's growing up. :'( Did anyone else ever notice that right before your eyes, the puppy face is gone? My husband thinks I'm nuts...I said look at her, I mean really look at her, there is a difference. I saw it right away, but he can't.
It's not the destination, it's the journey!
We've had the same experience with our dog Tucker. During the 1.5-2 year time period he became a full out DOG - he filled out and his puppy features matured. My friend hadn't seen him in 6 mos and came over and could not get over him, she kept saying 'Tucker you're a grown up dog now!'
The first time I realized that Fanny was not a puppy anymore was when she barked with this really deep, big bark. I couldn't see her when she did it and me and my husband looked at each other and said, yep that's Fanny. Seemed like it happened overnight too..........................
Definitely! I look back at Henery's pictures and I can totally tell when he turned from baby puppy dog to grown up dog. *sigh*
I am going through that now. He still has alot of puppy features, but they are slower starting ti go away.
