    DefaultWill he ever stop growing?

    Wow, so much for being a "little lab." Our little Coby was just 4lbs at 6 weeks, and about 15lbs at 3 months. He's now 55 at 5 1/2 months and seemingly growing faster than ever!

    Just wondering about how old everybody's lab was when they reached full weight?

    Thanks! Hope everybody is doing well!

    WOW!! I remember him being such a little dude!!

    Baloo was 47 lbs at 5 months, he's now 54.4 at 8 months and he's been hovering around there for about a month and a half or so. I expect he'll end up around 60-65 lbs at full adult size.

    We need recent pictures!! ;D

    What Laura says. I think. At least, Toby reached his full height at about 18 months (I was hoping that at two years old, he'd also reached full weight... oh well). Chamois, at 14 months, clearly is still growing/changing, though much more slowly than she was as a little one, of course.

    At 10 months (yesterday), I thought HK was pretty much at full height/weight. Maybe she might put another inch on, but weight will be monitored and controlled until we get that rib feel that the vet is looking for.

    Then this morning happened.

    I think her neck grew close to an inch over night, probably not. But I have put her collar on her every morning since we got her and adjust it as she grows. Yesterday morning the collar was fine. This morning it was snug enough that I could not comfortably insert to click the latch. I ended up trying to slide the collar higher and realized I was already there. Adjusted it larger, and sat on the floor to put it on when(of course sensitized now) I think she has added height. I know this didn't happen overnight. But this morning it got noticed.

    Endofile You are so right, Harley is not yet two but has finished growing I hope. When he was in his first year we would wake up and see a significant difference from the night before. They grow like weeds...
