How old is Galen now?
How old is Galen now?
Poor Galen. The little guy's still got his puppy fluff! And maybe even his puppy teeth! His puppy pass should have at least another month or two on it.He just turned five months, and he's 33 pounds.
His breeder thought he'd end up around 50 pounds. He was the runt of his litter, so I was expecting him to end up smaller. However, he seems to have stolen enough of Pogo's dinners to catch up.How big is Galen supposed to get? Poor Galen life's just not fair.
Pogo has been a superb foster dad. Early on he did a few smack downs to keep the pup from biting his face while he was sitting on the couch. Apart from that he has been far more gentle and patient than I would have been if I were stuck babysitting a toothy little monster.Nice to have an older dog who will teach puppy manners!
I tried it a few weeks ago; it said 44 pounds then. Today it says 46.5 pounds.Have you tried this calculator?
It nailed Peggy's weight.
That's similar to the range I got for Peggy (46-48ish, depending on the week) and she was 44.2 lbs at one year. She's still filling out a little, but her height hasn't changed in months.I tried it a few weeks ago; it said 44 pounds then. Today it says 46.5 pounds.
It's funny. When we got Pogo we really wanted a moyen. I ended up with a 26 inch 70 pound dog because I didn't like any moyen breeders I found . Now I'm accustomed to Pogo's size and kind of like it. So, of course we end up with a significantly smaller dog.That's similar to the range I got for Peggy (46-48ish, depending on the week) and she was 44.2 lbs at one year.

Pogo was dominant over Snarky, but not in an aggressive way. He just had more confidence and more work ethic. Snarky, who tended to be a bit timid and lazy, was usually happy to let Pogo set the tone of the household. On the rare occasions when Snarky did care about something Pogo was usually willing to back off. I hope we get an equally harmonious relationship this time around.Losing his puppy license with Peeves was one of Javelin's saddest experiences in his life. Javvy used to grab Peeves by the tail and take sleigh rides wiht Peeves pulling him along, cute when he was a pipsqueek, but not at any point after about 20 pounds. Javvy had a hard time understanding why his pal didn't go along anymore and did not understand the license had expired. They have had some less than stellar interactions in the years since, culminating now with oldster Peeves now having let Javvy be the top boy. Javvy doesn't seem to understand he doesn't need to assert the rank. He just has it so now rather than Peeves jurting Javvy I worry about Javvy hurting Peeves at this point. They are not good together alone. Lily is the bitch queen (behind me of course) and everyone knows it among the dogs.
