    Thanks in her name :) yes they would be great couple :) she can play for long time and she loves ruff play at least only with me thats what i am teaching her because her ruff play is like fighting young lion :) and then she can be so gentle especially with kids that it is pretty to watch, just yesterday we were at the shoping centre and she played with young boy maybe 4 years old so tiny and she was playing with him amongst all people like they were in their own world ,that someone would say that she is raised with kids but her first baby kid that she saw was in shoping centre month ago and she is acting like true somekind of therapy dog and that makes me very happy :) i just got her weighed today and she is right on 23.90 kg almost 24 and much of that are her lean muscles ,she is skinny but fit as little seal in the water only without fat :) and not to forget to mention again, she is very dominant little bitch :)

    Our Charlie, is somewhere around 36 or 37 kg now.

    Because of the super cold weather we've had, and then everyone being sick, then being in quarantine, Charlie hasn't had too much walking or socializing lately and you can sure tell the difference.

    I had problems with him pulling on the leash like a crazy horse. I've also noticed him occasionally barking at people he sees when walking (which I really don't like).

    He is getting his big boy bark now, and his big boy teeth are coming in beautifully.

    I don't mean to hijack the thread, but is that how the harness always fits Charlie, Elana? I ask because with every front hook harness I've used (and I've used them all) the front strap is supposed to fit higher up on the chest. Sitting that low it really has an effect on the way the front shoulders move and alter natural movement. It looks like an Easy Walk that is on upside down. Sorry to be a buttinsky, but proper fit is so important to avoid other issues caused by altering the natural movement of the front legs.

    It always starts out right, then slides down for some reason, no matter how many times it's adjusted and tightened, Charlie is the second pup to wear it, and there were never any problems with Danny when he wore it.

    I'd even watched the instructional videos several times, and followed the instructions to a T. It fit's fine, then slides down... :mad:

    I'd even asked the people at the store to adjust it. Fits okay for a few minutes before sliding down again :(

    I think we'll just start using a regular collar in the very near future.

    That's one of the reasons I stopped using the easy walk. It chafed and moved and generally made them very uncomfortable. If you like a front hook harness there are other options out there that stay put better or are made a bit differently so they don't slide. There's a really nice harness made in the UK where you order each part individually to get just the right fit. I'm saving my $$ to get three of them. It's called the Perfect Fit harness.

    Oh, and the Freedom Harness. That one stays put pretty well and has a front and back attachment. It's also velvet lined, which is nice.

    Sorry for the hijack, Kingmark. Back you your girl. She's just beautiful!

    LOL....
    Looks like you aren't going anywhere soon, hah hah!!!!

    I find the sharp elbows quite painful, when the crawl on you :confused:.
    Charlie, has taken to climbing half way into my lap when I sit in my comfortable chair in the evening. He used to fit all the way, but not anymore, but it's his snuggle time (so what can you do). Those elbows though, tend to leave bruises.

    She is a lovely little lady.

    Is she taking her guarding duties seriously already?

    We've still got Kahlua in Diesel's old easy walk. It is such a perfect fit that I haven't bought her a new one yet (which will probably be freedom harness like his current one). I am just waiting since the easy walk still fits and I don't know if she will grow any more. The funny thing is the easy walk never fit Diesel well. It was not a good harness for him so we almost instantly replaced it. I think he may have worn it once, maybe twice before we gave up on it. It works much better on Kahlua though so I guess I'm glad the thing is finally getting some use.
