Remind me how old she is??

I think mine were mostly down growing height wise at about 12 months. They grew really quickly until they were 6 months and then slowed down a lot from there on. I remember Murphy at 6 months...I thought "Oh, he is going to be HUGE". Now he is a whopping 60lbs at 4 years. ;D

Rowan will be 9 months on the 20th of April. So is she 'short'??

This is going to sound really funny, but, speaking from experience, did you have the yard stick going in the right direction? I thought I was losing my mind the first time I measured Caleb- he was only 15 inches tall. Then I realized I had the yardstick upside down! :laugh: He was actually 22 inches then.

I'm kinda curious but, how big was Caleb at 9 months? Reason why I ask is because I think my dog is too short. He is 6 months and is 19'' (properly measured) and 42 lbs.

welcome to the board. in the future it is better to start a new threat, this one is from 2007!!

He may still grow a few more inches in height, and then "fill out" for awhile after that. your best guess is to talk to the breeder about how big the parents are
