    Your siggie needs changin'!!

    Sounds like he's going to be a big boy, he's only 15 lbs behind Baloo, and Baloo's 7 months!!

    ETA: Nevermind about the siggie thing!!

    Baloo sounds tiny. Tucker should be about 65 lbs.

    I think once Baloo matures he'll be around 60-65.

    That's what his mom was, and he looks a lot like her.

    ETA: he's also only gained 8 lbs since he was 5 and a half months, so maybe he was around Tucker's weight...? hmm.... have to go back and check my records.

    How tall is Baloo. It seems a lot of dogs have different growth rates. I have been tracking Tuckers in hopes to gain some knowledge from it but it seems that everyone is different.

    Wow, what a great log of Tucker's weight! I'm impressed that you weighed him every week and kept track of it like that (Jonah was getting weighed at the vet's and that's it, we don't have a scale and I didn't want to take him to the pet store until his shots were done). It's interesting to see that Tucker's biggest gains were 16 weeks and on. Jonah had a huge growth spurt when he was 10 weeks (in a 10 day period he gained 5 pounds). I'm hoping that he will do like Tucker did and have a few weeks of 3+ pounds/week (he just turned 17 weeks)!

    ETA: Did you get the tooth? Jonah has lost 4, I got one of them. They all started growing in FAST after they fell out (like several days later we noticed them growing in). Big difference from my oldest daughter who finally got her top teeth after over a year!

    I measured, Baloo is 21.5 inches at the shoulder.

    Yes, still limping. :-\ But it doesn't seem as bad as yesterday, which is good.

    What a big day for Tucker! Your graph is really great! I love how you documented the percent increase each week! I just posted Guthries weights in the puppy section if you are interested. I am thinking(HOPING) that, like Baloo, his growth is beginning to slow down.
