hi growing has slowed a little, just under 24 inches and right around 55 pounds. What I am most happy about is that last night we were out in the front yard and he ran away. Well turns out he just wanted to go for a swim.. He got reprimanded for the running away but I am happy that he is turning into a water dog. now I just have to work on the boundaries again, apparently water means more to him than getting a treat.
