I've been measured plenty of times in the past and the girls always exclaim its 9" by 6". My wife recently disputed the 6" bit and sure enough was proven wrong. However when she did the length she was only getting 6.5"! I had a look myself and it seems to be a long way off 9". Is it possible that he's gotten smaller? that is pretty gutting lol. My wife says if I loose another half inch I'll be offically small in her books!
