He certainly does...

Can't think where the time goes. He's 16months old already.

He is certainly full size now in height and weight but his coat colouring hasn't settled yet. In fact he's a bit of a tricolour at the moment. That's probably because dad was a light brown and mum a slate. It will be interesting to see what he settles to....

Wow hasn't he grown up Shocked Laughing Laughing Lovely coat. My boy's dad was a slate and mum a brown; the whole litter were slates. Jethro's very dark like his dad.

Wink Wink Of course, butter wouldn't melt ..... little tyke Laughing Laughing

Hobbes can look the part when he needs to..... and he can be an absolute angle, when he needs to be (ie when he wants something) ...... but he can also be very mindful and obstreperous .... when he wants to be ..... Wink

But we wouldn't have him any other way

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

In answer to the nose question.... yes indeed - quite regal in my opinion Smile

And thank you Judy G for your compliments.... I am sure Hobbes is far too modest to think such a thing.... although he does seeeeeeriously believe that "everybody loves me" - which can cause one or two issues. We're still trying to iron out leaping bit and get him to sit when meeting anyone and when they want to say hello not to jump up... the sit bit gets mostly but he still insists that leaping up to "kiss" everybody is something all us humans love. Embarassed Embarassed

hahahahahaha, we shall watch with Great Interest how you sort out the leaping and kissing thingy.... Laughing And, Hobbes is actually quite correct, all right-minded people actively love being kissed and leapt upon by a gorgeous floofy creature like wot he is Cool

The wife and I were down in Devon for a few days last month... Stayed at the Hotel in Ilsington.

Strangely enough, many many years ago now, far too many to mention..... I learned my basic rock climbing skills on Hay Tor. That was when I was stationed at the old Royal Signals Junior Leaders Regiment in Denbury. We spent what seemed to be an inordinate amount of time tab'ing back and forth over the moors from Tor to Tor..... Laughing Laughing Laughing

Had to call into the Vets in Newton Abbot as Hobbes picked up a three ticks on the moor. I managed to relieve him of two but the third was on his eyelid and I was reluctant to do it... They were great, the nurse there had it our in a jiffy.

Hobbes is none the worse and wondered what all the fuss was about. Smile

Great to see Hobbes again, he's maturing very nicely. Very Happy

Beardies don't really get their adult coats until about age 3.

Lovely photos. Very Happy

Thanks.... looks can be deceiving Shocked He's still very mindful and stubborn at times..... then you get that.... Ohhhh were you talking to me look Laughing

Ahhh well just under another two years then..... it will be interesting to see how his coat turns out. I suspect quite a light slate with the some of the hair ends with a hint of brown maybe.... Surprised
