18 Weeks - Lanky

Maddie use to play under the agility table. Now she can see over it.

It is so amazing how fast puppies grow and change.  Maddie is now officially four months old and has been with us for over two months now.  This week she really seemed to get long and lanky.
I can just baaarely fit.

Remember the photo below?  It was taken at 11 weeks.  Just seven short weeks ago.  Look how small and precious Maddie was.
Now Maddie looks like a gangly teenager.  I just cannot believe the difference in such a short time.
And remember this precious little pup on her first day in Georgia?  With chunky joints, baby face, and soft fuzz coat.
Now everything is longer, stretched out, and super shiny, but Maddie is still a very good sitter.
You have to watch out for the mile long tail!  It actually can touch the ground if you straighten it out when she stands up.
Please don't step on my tail.

And how much longer is Maddie going to fit in a 36 inch long crate?  I am hoping we can continue to make it work through mid December.  I want to take Maddie with us to the Agility Invitational in Orlando and it would be nice if she still fit into a 36 long.
Probably wishful thinking though.

It's amazing when you put the photos together. It almost seems like it would be impossible to grow that fast.

If she doesn't slow down, she'll be bigger than her sisters by her first birthday.

She is growing very fast! I'm impressed that she's still pretty, our Siberians are the most unattractive youth when they leave true puppyhood.

You don't really notice them growing and changing when you see them every day until you really think about it.

I didn't think Kili had really gotten THAT much bigger until I thought about how much space she had in her little crate when she first came home. I also noticed this year that more and more her ears are set back like an adults instead of flopped over like little triangles.

Maddie was an adorable pup, but she's a lovely adolescent! She's going to be a beauty as an adult.

I felt the same way with Kuster! He was supposed to be a cute little fuzz ball until I got all the pictures of him that I wanted. lol They do grow remarkably fast! Maddie is a much cuter adolescent than Kuster was!

I love the second picture. They grow up too fast.
