Charlie looks like he is a similar height to my Butters. At 9 months, my guy weights 15 lbs and is longer and taller than other cavaliers I have seen. Here are a couple of pictures of him for a comparison to Charlie

Here his him next to my parents' 4 lb chihuahua, Xena

Where you see Molson, you are sure to see Butters too! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lsidari/6798336756/) by LSidari (http://www.flickr.com/people/lsidari/), on Flickr

He has met other cavaliers, and always is the biggest. He doesn't seem to mind, though :)

Charlie and Butters are both adorable!!!! It seems like Cavaliers range a whole lot in size, but I LOVE the taller Cavaliers!

ashleighelizabeth is right, Cavaliers do vary a lot in size. Early neutering [before 6 months] can mean they grow taller as sex hormones are linked to growth

at the end of the day it doesn't matter what they look like, they are all gorgeous and it's the personality that is the most important :)

Howard is very leggy at the moment. He lost his puppy tummy and turned into a little bean pole at about 4 months. He's 6 months now and is still gangly and tall.

He'll probably "thicken" in the body as he gets older as they fill out as they become adults.
