Sisko will be 3 in February, and seems to be going through a final growth spurt. I can see that he has gotten taller and bigger, and he is sleeping a lot more right now. Isn't this late for a growth spurt though? I know large dog breeds take a while to fully mature, but I thought that only giant breeds would still continue to grow at this age.

How have those numbers changed in the past year?
1 inch difference, and possibly 5 pound difference, but this would be the quickest growth spurt he has ever had since he was a puppy. Could stress had delayed his growth? Or could something be wrong since he grew with in a week?

You're saying he grew an inch taller within a week? I find it tricky to get a perfectly precise measurement of Peggy's height, so maybe there was a little human error in there.

Gaining weight at that age seems normal to me. My adolescent dogs looked like string beans compared to their later pics.
