Our newest addition is a little oopsie from a pure bred lab, and pure bred corgie. He weighs 7 pounds and is close to 9 weeks old. I am just curious as to whether any of you remember how much your labs weighed at the same age. Our older lab was 4 months old when we got her and she weighed about 26 pounds.
I bought Charlie a new crate and I think it's WAY too big!! It seems to me that maybe his is going to be a little guy. After all take a look at those tiny little feet!!
If you could remember how much they weighed and tell me how big they are now too that would be very, very helpful!

Caleb was a smidge over 10 pounds at 8 weeks. He's on the small side for a male Lab, just at the minimum adult weight of 65 pounds. Rule of thumb is to double that cute little guy's weight when he's 4 months old and you'll have a rough idea at what his adult weight will be.
Rhys was a peanut, 9 lbs at 9 weeks old, he was, at his most 85lbs as an adult.
Ruby was 21lbs as a 9 weeker, and is about 85lbs as an adult.
Gin and all my puppers at 9 weeks old were over 20lbs, except for baby Marshall who was a good 18lbs.
In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be human,
The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.
Rhys, Ruby and Nola
Baloo was 12 pounds at nine weeks, is now 69 pounds at two years.
Your baby will probably end up smaller than the average lab due to the corgi.
Baloo - 5 year old black lab
Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
Bali was 12 lbs, and is 95 lbs now. We don't know about Jaida, since she was a rescue. But Bali was a big boy from the getgo!

Blaise was 16 lbs at 9 weeks and is 28 at 13 weeks.
Sharon, Blaise and Diesel.
Our Gabby will be 8 weeks old tommorrow and weighs 16 pounds 4 oz. Her brother "Drifter" went home Saturday and weight was a hefty 18 pounds 4 oz. But I get teased about it being my water- growing them so big. LOL!
Puff, the runt of her litter, was 6 lbs. at 9 weeks + 3 days. (Her littermates weighed 12 lbs.)
She currently weighs 63 lbs. at 7 years age.
Puff [YF, AKC field line (from competing HT/FT breeder) 62 lbs, dob: 8-'01]
Bess [BF, AKC bench line (from competing show breeder) 55 lbs., 1967-1981] "Poor Bess, the Wonder Dog":
The smallest was ~8.5 lbs but from a huge litter. NOrmally I'd guess ~15# to be the norm at 8 wks. I do not keep mine rolly polly...
Sammi was about 12lbs when I picked her up at 8.5wks- now at age 3 she is always betweek 60-65lbs- last weigh in at petsmart was 62lbs
