Paddy is now7 months old. I get concerned about her size, thinking she seems to have stopped growing recently. Although she is feathering now..

I wonder, her ears don't seem to be so long as in many other Cavalier pictures I see. Can anyone tell untill what age they still grow?

Usually about the age of 2 they have their adult coat in. Paddy has lots of growing time yet.

They are all different. Maxx has had long ears since he was tiny but Charlie is 2 1/2 and his are only just growing a bit now - I don't think he'll ever have proper Cavalier ears :roll:

They all vary so much. Both of mine have very long ears (which is not such a good thing when it comes to dragging them through the mud, stepping on them when they're sniffing the ground and food time). Both of mine reached their peak at about 2 years old.

Paddy's ears are pretty long for a 7 month old and he still has lots of growing time left.

Waiting patiently for Bradley's ears to grow a bit. Don't know if they will grow anymore. They are a dream to look after though, because the fur isn't very thick. :)

Cailean's ear length varies, depending on whether he's been to the groomer recently :).

thats quite a recent photo of milo and his ears dont seem long at all?? Monty is the same..i really hope they grow they looks so lovely when they are long
but i guess (well im hoping anyway) that it'll all happen in its own time. lots of people say that theyre usually fully grown by 2 years..your baby is only 7months so you have a long time for it to happen!

Oh yes Nisha, they look lovely but they are magnets for food, dirt, water and just about everything else you can imagine :badgrin: :lol:

These lovely long ears take an awful lot of care and grooming :roll: :lol:

Busta's ears are really nice, and it seems that Woody only had back leg, bum and a nice tail, still waiting for his ears to grow, Ozzy has started to feather nicely now.
