- A. I'm still recovering from sleep deprivation since May 30.
- B. Our Internet has died & been resuscitated several times. We've been granted a temporary reprieve- don't know for how long. But it still crawls at times.

Does birth weight correlate positively with final size? Based on my experience, no - unless there is a runt or extremely small whelp and even then, it doesn't always result in a small size. When fed appropriately and not neutered at an early age (this can prevent the growth plates from closing resulting in a taller than usual specimen), a dog will grow as tall as its genetic map says it will. Since our breeding dogs have been within the written CKC Vizsla standard, we expect that the offspring produced will also be within the standard. However, I will admit that exceptions can and do occur but knock on wood, this has been extremely rare for us.
