    Diggity will be 9 months old tomorrow and he is just shy of 60 pounds! His breeder said at 9 months he will have his final growth spurt. Bring it on!!

    It's not easy. Google it.

    I still haven't been able to get an "exact" measurement on Brooks. Getting him to stand still is next to impossible.

    Diggity is a squirmy wormy. Was hoping someone had a trick to getting a measurement at home! It's not a big deal though. I can wait until next week when I go back to that training facility. I am more curious than anything on his height.

    I used to be able to hold him while I stood on a scale in order to get his weight. I tried that yesterday and he was so wiggly (and heavy) that I couldn't do it. So, I took him to my vet and got his weight there.

    At 5 months and 3 weeks, Stormy was 45 lbs. Amazingly, we got the same numbers with DH holding her and stepping on the bathroom scale and at the vet’s office later that day when I dropped her off for boarding.

    Zeke is just about 3 and 1/2 years old and for the past year or so he's been hovering around 70 pounds. The photo is from yesterday (3-7-19)

    Lido, the largest in his litter, was 15.7 lb. at 8 weeks, 38 pounds at 4 months, 55.8 pounds at 6 months, and 75 pounds at 9 months. His mom, an American lab, is 63 pounds. His dad, an English lab, is 106 pounds (and not fat at all!). He's finally starting to slow down on his weight gain, thank goodness!

    Had Diggity wicketed today and he is 22 inches! For weight, hes holding steady at 60 pounds. I still think hes going to gain another 10 and it will be interesting to see if he gets any taller. Hell be 10 months on April 6, so a week and a half from now.

    Mine have pretty much stopped growing "up" by 9-10 months, they just kept filling in from that point.

    I did get a proper measurement on Brooks with a wicket a couple weeks ago and he was 23". I dropped by the vets office last week and he weighed in at 77 pounds. He could carry another 10 pounds on his frame, and would need to if I was showing him in conformation. I like to keep him lean as we do so much field work and obedience training with a lot of jumping.
