      Moving from the "Puppy Category" (I guess...)

      Well, though she's really still very much a puppy, she's a solid 6 months and 60-some lbs, so perhaps it's time to move her to this folder. Two photos from a brisk (low 30s) park ramble today. She's wet from stream romping and muddy from general hill climbing and in the second one she has a pine cone in her mouth. But she's my little lovely!

      (1) guarding the kids (my son and his 5 year old "cousin") as they piggy back down the trail; (2) me trying to get a moderately Ok photo of her, even as she's wet and muddy; (3) close-up, with pine cone (sigh).

      I love her head, very feminine and a kind expression, ever while eating a pine cone!!!

      Just out of curiosity how tall is she at the shoulder? She really reminds me of Sophie at the age, who was also about 60 pounds at 6 months. Sophie topped out at 78 pounds at 9 months, then as she matured the baby fat started coming off, and she's been between 65-70 pounds since about 16 months. Spayed at 22 months.

      I think your girl is gorgeous.

      Thank you—I think she's pretty gorgeous, too (though I had absolutely nothing to do with that part of things!).

      I'll have to measure her (hah hah let's get her to hold still for that). I believe she is just under / around 22", but should grow another inch, I think. Her line is not super tall, but rather medium-sized and solid. Her dam is about 90 lbs, but the breeder remarks "she's a bit too fat." I think that a good weight for Hoku will be in the 80 lb range (as long as she's kept very active), but we'll see as she matures. I also won't spay until closer to two years, when she's sexually mature.

      (And yes, she also strikes me as "feminine," but I honestly don't know what I mean by that in this case!)

      I'd say she was almost identical to Sophie at the same age.

      This is Sophie at 9 months.

      Sophie is gorgeous in that photo (How old is she now?). Yes, they look very similar in terms of size and structure.
