Kopi-O is about 1 yr and 4 mths now he has been with us since 2.5 months. We were blessed to be present to witness his different growth stages. I’m happy to say that he never had an awkward moment…
This was him when he first arrived. So small and cute! With those puppy eyes
At 3 mths old he was chubby
At 4 mths, he grew longer, and was starting to lose his black stripe at his back…
At 5 mths, he has completely lost his black stripe and grew a lot longer!
At 6 mth, he was not only bigger, but cuter and fluffier. His ears never perked up, unlike other shelties…
This is him at 7 mths. Definitely beginning to look like a sheltie. With more chest hair too
At 8 mth, he still sat like a turtle. No frills on his forelegs yet…
At 9 mths, he was 16.5 inches tall and weighed 10.6kg fluffier, with a little frills on his fore legs. He started to abandon his turtle sitting pose
This is him at 10 mths… Not much different, just fluffier
At 10.5 mths, just before taking his first flight down under
He spent his 11mth birthday at the quarantine centre. The cool weather has aided the growth of his fur
At about 1 yr old, he loved the wind. He coat has grown much longer and he has acquired a lot of chest hair
A 13 mth old kopi-o. Frills are getting longer on his fore legs
14 mth old kopi-o. He’s reached his full height. The only room for growth now is his fur
