Finn, our youngest samoyed is huge compared to Cleo. She is nearly 18 months old and weighs about 35 lbs, he is 7 months old and is almost 60 lbs, will he ever stop growing? The vet has reminded us that puppies of large dogs must have their exercise limited to avoid joint problems in later life so he is limited to 30 minute walks.
Finn has had a problem ( I won't go into details but it is at the end without teeth!) which has been very uncomfortable for him. He hasn't been able to sleep for a couple of nights which has stopped me sleeping as well - it's just like having small children all over again. The vet has cured him with a very unpleasant procedure and some antibiotics and he is catching up with his sleep.
