Hi

As threatened in another topic, I am starting a Willowmead thread as there seem to be quite a few out there. and we seemed to be taking over someone else's thread Exclamation

I have always had Willowmeads - just love them Very Happy -

I have just had Jago weighed and at 10 months and 10 days he weighs exactly 19.4k. So he has put on just over 2k in 5 weeks, which I'm pretty pleased with. Smile But I suspect he is still one of the smaller boys out of his litter. Unless you know differently, Lisa and Tracy Question

And Gilly, I suspect that Mac is not far behind Jago Question

But on the whole, Willowmeads tend to be fairly slow growing, some not reaching full size until they are 18-24 months. And they are not a huge line, anyway, I don't think.

It will be interesting to see how many Willowmeads there are out there, and how many of your dogs are related to my Jago Very Happy : Lets get them coming in folks Idea Very Happy Laughing

Hi CJ

great, our own little Willowmead bit! We can natter about our babes to our hearts content now! Laughing

Willowmeads are a slight boned line which i sooo prefer,After all the beardie should be a medium sized dog! Easy To Carry! Some lines are huge and some are short legged..I think Willowmead and a few other old fashioned lines have the correct balance! If they look right they usually act right! ie "Super Intelligent". I don't know if it was the same with Jago, But Burdock Stayed fairly small shot up a bit at 2owks ish and seemed to change at about every 2 months, in contrast to my Dandy he is a chunkier line and growing at great speed, Bigger boned.
Burdock is 18kg exactly at the moment and a bit on the lean side but he does have lots of off the lead exercise, free running and bouncing with other beardies.

Oh Is Jago still on the Burns? What the litter was weaned on..I kept burdock on it for a while BUT it did'nt seem to suit him.

Burdock I on R/Canin sensitive which keeps him in lovley condition i find his coat is alot more healthy looking and looks a picture of fitness.

Burdock has a slightly sensitive tummy.. But i think sometimes he gets it if he worries too much! His a sensitive little soul...always taking everything in.

I Alsso wonder whether diet has contributed to Dandys Growing as he is on pup Royal Canin which is higher in protein and alot richer than the Burns.

Hi Lisa

I have Woody Burdocks brother. Love the photos of him.

Woody is not on Burns as he had upset stomach on this food. He has been on Wafcol salmon and potato for quite some time now and it suits him better.

Woody was weighed yesterday and he is 19kg.

am trying to load some pictures of him.

hi tracy, Very Happy
nice to meet you! so glad i found this site now! Surprised
Glad you like the photos of Burdock, he really is my pride and joy!
I found altho "Burns" supposed to be holistic and natural it made burdock poo loads!!!!!!!! and was soft plus i found he was not thriving on it. I don't think it suits beardies. Plus Burdock went off his soggy minibites when i first got him to the point of just refusing it.. i know you suppose to persist to prevent fussiness but he just was'nt doing well on it. I gave him naturediet aswell as i was worried he was going to lose to much weight plus toplife Goats milk.. But i would say Burdock has a slightly sensitive tum and the royal canin seems to realy suit him he is still on junior food at the moment.
Can't wait to see photos of woody.

Burdock & (dandy) pup send kisses

Tracy, Cj,

I know its discusting and quite a common prob with canines but i wondered whether Jago or Woody try to eat poo! Confused
Burdock likes to eat other dogs but not his own.. also partial to wood?
And when he was little pup pup spent ages in the garden like a billy goat eating dry grass,tuffs and plants!

Just been on the "Sensitive Digestion" Topic Seems as all of us have had the same prob with sensitive tummys.

Are Jago, Woody still on the wafcol with Success?

I bet you experienced What i call the "Poo pancake" !!! I know its gross but im sure us beardie mums can cope! when a soft stodgy poo gets stuck!! and then they sit down with worry!

Burdock is now VERY used to baths!! with the shower on his bum as it seems to be the only way! yuk

Fish based foods seem to be working on our pups.

Wonderful to see a photo of Hamish at last, hope Wallace grows up to be as lovely as his grandad.
Wallace is will be 7 months on the 12th and is 18.6k. He is at the fussy teenager point as I call it, but unlike my last boy who had a sensitive tummy Wallace can eat anything, so putting chicken, mince or whatever we are having in with his puppy Royal Cainin is not a problem and he scoffs the lot Rolling Eyes
Thought that he was still a bit on the light side but it seems to be a Willowmead thing.

Carly, Lisa, Tracy and CJ - weighed mac this morning and he is 18.1k and 28 weeks old so approx six and a half months - he is quite a lean lad but well muscled and fit. It would be good to compare weights over the next few months.

Oh yes thanks Pamela for reminding me.... welcome to FBC Steve and Di -it can become very addictive Laughing - we are all a very friendly bunch of people and we all love hearing from new members.

Looking forward to hearing more about Bryde and Skye and also Orca who you have recently lost. Fabulous scenery in your pictures.
