    DefaultSize question

    My chocolate lab Zappa is around 80 lbs, he will be 10 months old next week. He's not fat in the least bit, he actually looks like a little body builder. Were any of your labs a comparable size at that age?

    Without seeing him its hard to guesstimate. Were his parents large? What does the vet say?

    My cousin has a black lab named Zappa, he's also a big boy!

    My big boy Finn was 85 lbs when he was 6 months old. By 10 months he was 100 lbs.

    My brother who is a keyboard player spent two weeks in June playing with "Zappa does Zappa" - cool music.

    When you press lightly on his ribcage - can you feel ribs? If not - he is probably a little chunky. Does he have a noticible nip in at the waist when viewed from above? He should. If when viewed from above he has no waistline - looks like a sausage - he is probably chunky.

    If you can feel ribs and he has a waist - you are probably fine. Many people think their lab is just powerfully built when they could really afford to drop a few pounds. They are better off on the thin side - much easier on the joints.

    Bauer weighed about 75 pounds at 10 months, and at 2.5 he weighs about 86 pounds.
