      Sophie just turned 4. When she hit 78 pounds she was between 9-10 months old. I could still feel her ribs, but I knew she didn't need to be any heavier. I didn't do anything consiously to make her loose weight. She was 75 pounds at 2 years old when Bruce arrived. She was much more active with all the play with him, and as he got bigger, the play got rougher and faster, with a lot more running. She got down to 62 pounds when she was 3, and I felt she was a bit to thin, even though my vet said she was perfect. I started giving her a bit more food, and I keep her between 70 and 75 pounds, which I think is just about right for her based on her overall shape and size. Since she's spayed I take her to the vet an weight her around once per month.

      I try to keep a good eye and hand on her (and frequent contact w/ our breeder), as she eats a lot and I know that as soon as she stops growing so rapidly I will need to cut back on it so she doesn't get chubby. Right now she's mainly muscle and thick, thick coat. Some fat, but she's still a puppy. And beyond regular outdoor play—I have an 11 year old border collie (not really: he's a human boy, but with the physical and mental energy of a border collie) and they can tire each other out—she gets fairly regular park romps where she can power up and down hills.

      She'll be getting her flea treatment in a few days, so that's a good time for her to hop on the Vet scale and see where she's at. And I'll try to see how tall she is tonight. How tall is Sophie?
