    DefaultHow much does your pup weight???

    Chance just went to the vet the other day and he weighed in at 48.5 lbs. Just wondering what your lab weighed at 7 months. I'm interested to see if Chance is going to be a big lab or a little guy.

    My Puff (YF, AKC field line, 63 lbs., dob: 8-'01) weighed:

    _80 days ____10 lbs.

    120 days____23 lbs

    210 days____46 lbs

    300 days____53 lbs.

    The shape of the curve of her rate of growth was very similar to the silhouette* of the NW (upper left) quadrant of an American football viewed from the side.

    She has a YM friend from a BYB with the same DOB and he has always weighed twice her weight at the same time.

    BUT growth rates DO differ.* Some gain more weight earlier but then slow down more later -- for some the reverse may be true.

    Corby will be 7 months in a week, and was weighed yesterday when he got fixed. He's 65 pounds. His dad was 110 (probably overweight) and his mom around 70. I hope he just fills out and doesn't get alot bigger, since he likes to cuddle next to us on the couch and sometimes his butt ends up on our lap instead of his head.

    Edited to add: He was 47 pounds when he got his rabies shot, which was around 4.5 or 5 months.

    He is probably about 48 lbs and he is 5 months old. Lean and healthy!

    Sounds like Chance is going to be a small pup. He is too, lean and healthy. Everytime someone sees him, they think he is goign to be monster b/c of his paws and long legs. But from what what you guys are saying about your pups, mine isn't going to be very big. Which is fine with me.

    If he follows Puff's growth curve, he'll probably be in the 70 lb. range when he's 18-24 mos. old (as long he doesn't get overweight).

    Dale was at the vet a couple weeks ago and weighed in at 39 pounds - he was about 5 1/2 mos at the time. He's long, lean and leggy too! I think he'll be on the smaller side as well. In fact, we have a bet going with friends of ours to see how big he'll get..... theres $20 worth of drink of choice in it for whomever wins!!

    a good yardstick to go buy for puppies is about 2 pounds per week for the first 6 months!! However this isnt something universal but a decent indicator.

    Maui was 16 pounds in mid August. It is now Sep. 5th and he is about 22 pounds. I have to move the divider in his crate back one rung about every 5 days! I have already moved it back almost 7" since we got him in early August.
