well vixie is "HUGE" for a chihuahua and i need to put her on a diet (shes 5lbs, a retired show dog and is perfect weight for her build)
Dodger is SOOO tiny he MUST be a teacup (hes 3lbs) but hes "big for a teacup" i tell them hes nto a teacup hes a chihuahua, i dont walk teacups their lack of legs makes it difficult (i get some strange looks with that one)
Ruby is a standard poodle puppy that i was cruel and clipped wrong and taken the time to straighten her hair...*blinks* im also going to be realy suprised when she hits 60lbs...
(well yes since shes a crest 8months olf and full grown at 10lbs...thanks!)

One reason why I avoid Petsmart with my dog.

Theres many better places that don't have people that shop their and think they are "dog know-it-alls" AND except that YOU know more about your dog then them

Yeesh! Spy's a big boy.

I really think their size varies by region, because there are a lot of gigantic border collies here. We treated one at the clinic today that was 77lbs and only about 5lbs overweight. He was a nice dog, purebred and worked a cattle ranch, but dang he was bigger than most GSDs I've seen. I don't know what lines he comes from, but they seem popular around here. Unfortunately people also have dogs like these as pets, and they let them get fat. I kid you not, I've seen a 90lb border collie come into the clinic. Poor thing looked almost like a pancake from above...

No wonder people tell me Eve is tiny. She's just not from around here lol

And Kharma is a short Great Dane . . . . or a Bloodhound . . . . or a Hound/Dane cross . . . or a Bull Mastiff

With my new border collie pup, people always ask me what kind of dog he is. Then they don't believe me because he has blue eyes.

Great pictures of eve by the way in the other thread. Shes SO beautiful looking.

You know what they would call a black bi Aussie though Zoom, a docked Border Collie, of course.

Personally, I need to get one of those shirts that says "He's not a Mini" for when I take Django out. He is a small boy,(32.5 lbs.) from working lines, ( I found his turn in sheet from the shelter and he did originally come from a farm.) so he is not all tall and fluffy like the show type Aussies people are used to seeing, plus he doesn't have the white blaze and collar. But, he is within the standard anyways for height. He does have copper on his rear legs and some real muddy and muted points on his face and throat, but you really have to be looking for them to see them. He does get called a heeler a lot and THEN I get asked why I docked my HEELER'S tail.

With our Dalmatians, I would also get told that our boys HAD to be part Chocolate Lab, because EVERYBODY knows that Dals ONLY come in black and white. Funny then that our liver boys were the only registered dogs we had, our black spotted bitch never had any papers.
