I've seen a couple of topics about the rate of development of Cavaliers vis-a-vis their coat and ears, but I'm wondering about their size. When do they usually reach their adult size? Believe me, I know that's a hard question because when someone asks me questions like "when did your kids say their first word," I kind of stammer and hem and haw and say "the normal time?" I wrote some of it in their baby books, but I just don't remember timing of things like that off the top of my head.
But if any of you specifically remember about how old your dog was when he/she quit growing, could you post and let me know?
Daisy is 5+months old now, and she's getting pretty long and tall, though she is still really thin (kind of that gawky pre-teen stage). I was just wondering if this might be her adult size now in terms of height and/or weight. I don't know exactly how much she weighs, but I'm guessing around 10-12 pounds. I'm sure she'll fill out more, but I'm kind of hoping she won't get much longer or taller.
I went to a dog show a couple of weeks ago to kind of remind myself of how adult cavaliers look (just for fun). It seems like Daisy is already kind of a typical height, but it's hard to judge because the adult dogs have all that hair that Daisy doesn't have yet.
This is the first puppy I've had since I was a kid, so I just don't remember how long they keep on growing.
