Hello All,
Haven't posted since April I believe, but I have popped in a few times to catch up :) . I thought I would let you know Bella is maintaining her girly figure at 22months 22 inches and 63 lbs , Bubba 9 months on July 3rd is still GROWING steadily 26 1/2 inches and 82 lbs. Both are very active and happy go lucky. Manny in his prime was 78 lbs and 25 inches (passed @ 13), Balou in his prime 86 lbs and 27 inches ( passed @15). I will post new pics soon. Take good care, Thanks for all the great posts and pics as always :D

Oh Cindy he is a stunner, he has such a regal stance. Lovely pictures. I noticed the tag on your pictures says Lake Nyassa, is that also known as Lake Malawi? Or am I confusing 2 lakes? :oops:

I will look back at our records i will let you know what Kodi was at 11 months so maybe you can get an idea how Big your chow will get...

Yeah you cant go by that Size for the Airedale..thats standard...When they came to America certain breeders devolped the Oorang strand...they were Breed to hunt and Kill bears,mountain lions,big game..If you look up Oorang or Jim thrope you will see what i mean...But yes he is way bigger then a standard Airedale...lol....

Both my Chows are purebreds, half brother and sister, same father, different mothers. Zeena is 65 lbs. and Max 85 lbs. Zeena can take Max down like he's nothing, even though she's lighter. Pure muscle, not fat on either one but, Max respects her, that's why she can do that. Max was pretty "chunky" when he was a pup, big paws and all and far as he was concerned, he was the Alpha male, until he was neutered. He would have been hell on wheels if we didn't, take my word for it.

Ok he is like our female chow she looks more like a smooth coat...How tall is he? Kodi is close to 26 inches tall at his shoulders and 17 months he still has im guessing a good 15-20 lbs ...I hear they take almost up to 3 yrs to full out..That could put him close to 90-100 lbs... :shock: ..lol

Wow, so many variations in weight. I was concerned my 7 month Barney was growing so fast, he weighs about 61lbs at just over 7 months! Was growing about a KG every couple of weeks! Getting very difficult to manouvre, but vet says he's healthy and I'll keep up the rib check. Just had him done so even more important now!

Had to take Maisie to the vet this morning.
She weighed in at 58.5 lbs. and she is 3 yrs. old just. So she is a bonny girl.
The vet said she is lovely and not overweight. Both she and Matilda have to go next Friday for their booster jabs so Matilda will get weighed then.
I will measure them when I can get them to stand still.

Max is 85 lbs. and his half sister 65 lbs. Both purebreds, AKC registered. What's funny is a cable guy looked at Zeena and couldn't believe she was 65 lbs. He said his dog was bigger than her but, weighed less. I told him that's because Chows are solid muscle. Solid. Pound for pound, one the strongest dog breeds.
