Laughing ... Can't be doing much for his street cred

As Stella says, loads of growing to do yet and you will see him chunk out Smile

Thanks for the info. His brothers have already started to get bigger heads and although I love him whether his heads big or small I was a bit worried for his sake. Every day he sits there and nods his head as though he's cold if you know what I mean and I didn't know if this was something to be concerned about?

Not entirely sure what you mean about the nodding head. Is it constant or occasional ?

It's occasionally but id say he does it every day. Usually when he's just sat quiet (so not very often!!)

Ah ok... My Flo does that. It's almost like she's nodding off to sleep with her head up Laughing

Do you mean nodding (as in nodding off as Ian says) or actual shaking as though it is not controlled?

Hi sorry I had an early night. It seems uncontrolled. He will sit in his bed and just does a few nods (like he's saying yes if you know what I mean)

Was going to ask the vets on the next visit as I'm not worried it's just a little weird. Will try getting a video but he hasn't done it so I've noticed for a couple of days haha
