Our beloved Scottie Angus passed away in March. He would have been 11 years and 7 months old if he had lived two more days. My heart was broken. He was mommy’s little shadow. Now we have another beautiful furbaby. He is a wheaten named Seumas. Seumas will be 5 months old on the 13th of July. Seumas is going to be much smaller than our Angus. Angus was a big boy 17 1/2 inches from base of neck to base of tail and he weighed 30 pounds.
Seumas only weighs 11 pounds and 13 ounces now. It is has been so long since I had a scottie baby that I cannot remember how long it takes them to get their full growth. Can you tell me? Our wonderful vet says that Seumas will never reach 20 pounds. I do believe he is going to be a little boy. He is really a great big doggie in a little dogge suit. LOL I’m know you know what I mean.
Seumas is in private obedience classes and only has a couple of more to go. We have had rain this week and that stand/stay is just out of our reach. He wants to either go down or keep on walking. LOL
Any help you can give me about the growth time will be greatly appreciated.
Hmm, well, he’s still got some growing to do. I would say Scotties stop growing at about 15 months and that the growth really slows down at six months. I like the way Marjorie Flack explains it in Angus and the Cat, but maybe one of our readers can give us the scientific version.
