    My most recent pics of him aren't the best quality because they were taken on my mobile... I have been too lazy to charge the batteries for the camera :eek:

    He's gorgeous ...and big! - Lovely colour too xxx

    I wish Meg was a little taller, she seems quite small to me, she's classed as 'slight'?? and has quite delicate features.

    I dont think she has grown since 6/7 months old when we had her spayed - someone told me afterwards that spaying early does affect their growth, anybody heard of this?

    He's huge! And very gorgeous :D How old is Arrow now?

    Love his freckles.
    I don't know much about bitches' growth post-spay but apparently the opposite is true of early-neutered male dogs, they grow taller than un-neutered or late-neutered dogs.
    Our Collie girl was spayed at a similar age to yours and was about average height but very slight until she was about 3 or 4 when she filled out (must must MUST scan in photos of her!). I don't think her growth was restricted by her spay but not saying it isn't possible!

    Meg is the same height as Breeze and she's a Labrador! She could well fill out a bit more, how old is she?

    Breeze is tiny, I've only met one Lab that's smaller than her! For scale, this is her with my sister who is about 4'9"

    She wasn't spayed until we got her aged 7, I think her tininess is from being fed crap food and being repeatedly bred from a young age.

    Meg definitely has more growing to do if she's just turned one :)

    Thank you for the lovely comments about my boy :D

    I'm not sure with bitches, but like Thorne said, the opposite is said about neutering males... I haven't found that though. Both Jake and my previous dog Sam, were neutered at 6 months (they came from the SSPCA) and neither of them grew overly tall... they are both crosses but they are perfectly proportioned, so I think they are/were the height they were meant to be.

    Thank you :D He is a BIG boy, he will be 8 months on the 23rd of this month... and I just remembered my signature tell you :p He is 22in, and weighs 22kg :eek:

    Oh ok, will get some of Jake :D Will do that tonight when I finish work :)

    She doesn't sound small :). For a bitch she sounds like higher end of the scale for her height.
