Susan, Rocky and Tyler are almost exact in everything! Maybe they're twins!:wub:
Ouch :new_shocked: - I hope theiy're not twins since Rocky was just a year old and Tyler will be two in February. :w00t: That poor mommy would be a hurtin' pup for sure. :HistericalSmiley: But as far as size and looks - they are very similar and could be twins if not for birthin'. They're both so handsome.
I'm thinking you can guess when I read the subject line Size Matters, what I was thinking of! :HistericalSmiley: Not that I know anything about that.:blush:
Hey, I had to figure out some way to get people's attention. :whistle: Glad you like the real intention of the thread...sharing:)

Yes, I agree very handsome boys. My granddaughters will wear the same color as me and say, look grandma, we're twins!
I got your drift right away....shhhhh.:HistericalSmiley:

I would LOVE name suggestions! My last little girl was Dolly, who is now at the Rainbow Bridge. We have another older girl named Tiffany, who is decidedly my hubby's dog!

I believe that picture was taken less than a month ago, but I can't be positive. She is a cutie, isn't she? I'll put up pics when I get her home.

I have a countdown clock on my computer for when I get to pick her up LOL. less than nine days now!

Jackie - why don't you post in the Introduce yourself part of the forum and ask for name suggestions there so we don't go too far afield here:) Welcome!!

Length: 12"
Chest: 12"

Sarah...Did Yeager have recent weight gain? That is a good weight that I would like to see Rocky at..he feels too thin to me, but the Vet says he's ok. I am trying to "fatten" him up to six or seven pounds. :HistericalSmiley:

Yes..he definitely did!! We've been going out less due to the rain, and he also got more treats for the holidays :w00t:

Rocky's frame seems to be smaller than Yeager's, from the measurements, and Yeager was 6 lbs last summer. I tried to "fatten" Yeager up before too :HistericalSmiley: My biggest worry when he was a baby was that he'd be too weak since he just didn't eat that much! I always thought he needed to be stronger to effectively fend himself against the other dogs at the park :innocent:

Question:
When you measure the dog, do you measure the fur as well?? Yeager has about 2 inches of fur right now, so if I included his fur then the measurements would be:

Length: still 12"
Chest: 14" instead of 12"
Neck: 10" instead of 8"

So if I order clothes for him online I should go with the larger size if I don't want the clothes to be tight against his skin and making his fur puff out from the arms of the shirts lol?

Sarah - I kind of do a mix -- not as wide as if I get all the volume of his hair but not skin tight so that the hair will make him too big to fit into things. Didn't put that well but I think you know what I mean. One thing is that not all sizes and manufacturers are created equal. Some are roomier; some are tights. I err on the side of things being a little big. So what size do you go with and how much does Yeager weigh?

Thanks Sue! I know exactly what you mean :) One of the websites that I was looking at is Barkin Dog Clothes with this sizing chart:

Toy-Neck 8-11 Inches, Chest 12-14,Length 9.
Small-Neck 10-13 inches, Chest 14-17,Length 12.

I think I will go with the Small to be safe. Yeager is between 6.5 and 7 lbs, and has to get size Medium at PetSmart.

BUMP - just figured we have some new members in the past few months and new Malts added to families so maybe they'd like to enter their fluff's sizes.
