Oh, I was thinking yesterday that Mojo seems a bit short. I said something about it to Ela, and now he looks short to her too. Then at puppy class, Riley's mom said something like "wow, he's short."

I measured him at around 8-9" high the other day, which means he's within the breed standard. Wonder if he'll grow any taller? He was also around 25-27" long from tip to tip. It seems long to me now, maybe I'll try another day and see.

Lastly, the fur on his tail is pretty scraggly. I'm not sure what's up with that, but it looks like the branch of a christmas the end of the season. The breed standard says "The tail is high-set and plumed with long, silky hair." Mojo's is all that, minus the long silky hair. Maybe it'll puff out when he gets his adult coat, which should be at around 9 months or so.
