First Christmas with Namequa was terrific. At six months now, she is just topping out at 25 lbs. We've been through two general obedience classes and yesterday started an Agility for Fun class, where I've been encouraged to use extra caution not to let her jump too high until she's full grown. Not sure how big that is going to be...she seems small compared to a lot of the photos out here, but sometimes pix can be deceiving. Anyway, thank you all for your kindness and support. Hope your new year is blessed with joy - and if it seems as though it is not working out that way, take a look into your AID's eyes, and I'll bet you'll feel differently! Here is a recent photo of Namequa and her "brother in spirit" MooShoo. I'm also including a hyperlink for you to enjoy. It's an amazing post of a German fellow "walking" 16 dogs off leash through the German countryside.

My AID was also quite small for a long time. She settled at 35 pounds, which is pretty average for a female, but she seemed so small to me for so long. Well, she was.

 

As advertised, she grew and matured slowly. Now when we go to Gib's for a little dog gathering, she looks normal. it's nice to see her with the occasional AID female for comparison.

That's a very fun picture. Kim has been bringing the size down for a few years, now. They come in many sizes. One of mine runs close to 50, and the other is about 35.

 

Good for you to watch those joints. Forgot how long you are supposed to wait. Anyone? I'll have to look that up, again.

Vet's say- right around 18 months. No "Assisted heights" aka- vaulting off persons/things. I know Jas was about 14 months when he started to really fly- on his own. Come spring, we will start working on vaults, because he will be about 20 months at that point. :)
