Ok, you experienced show people…I have a couple questions.
I looked at the pics in "my how they grow" and the "Bella has been pointed" thread and everyone's pups at 5 months/6 months old look significantly more on the way to looking like an adult than my 5 month old Liyah. Liyah still looks so much like a puppy to me. She's definitely getting bigger, but she just doesn't look as mature as the others on here. Is there a spurt of maturity between 5 and 6 months?
So at 6 months of age when a pup can first be shown, does it count against a pup to still "look like a pup" when being shown?
