@Boogie - So cute! I want her!! I'll pay shipping.
Weighed Arnie today at 10 months. He's 33.25kg.
Also, 57 cm at the withers
Sparky is now 24 weeks (6 months) and 54 lbs!
After my vet friend's advice, Xena has been on increased rations for the past week. Two weeks ago she weighed 17.7 kg. Today, at almost 35 weeks/8 months she weighs 18.6 kg!
I think I'll continue to increase her kibble a little over the next week because I can still see her last two ribs when she's standing straight, but they're less pronounced than last week so that's great. Xena's coming for you Stanley @JenBainbridge
Loki is a 12 weeks old boy and weights 20 pounds ( 9 kg).
Thor is 10.4kg at 14 weeks, having been 8kg at 12 weeks so even considering his issues with food the last few days seems to be around a kg a week which sounds fairly decent
Popped into the vets today. Bramble turned 12 months old last week . She now weighs 33.9 kgs. She did drop weight quickly last week, just by being on low fat adult food ( the boys kibble ran out of puppy food), Back on her usual puppy food now and looks much better. The nurse ( who also keeps labs ) thinks it won't harm to keep her on the puppy for a few months, as she need s the higher fat and protein content. I think she looks more in proportion now, she is much faster, and looks more fluid, so less paranoid about her growing bones! I honestly don't know where her weight goes, she is tall, but not overly tall!
Sparky is now 56.6 lbs at 25 Weeks! Not easy to carry him anymore, I'll need to bring him to the vets and use their scale from now on. Today he switches to 2 meals a day. I hope he won't miss his lunch as I've slowly decreased the amount the last 5 weeks.
Luna is 5.5kg at 8 weeks.
She's smaller than she looks then. Ella was 8kg at the same age
Really?! I'm actually quite surprised because she feels so heavy! But Willow was only half a kilo lighter. I think it's her stocky build that's deceiving.
I'm taking Willow to the vet tomorrow, so Luna can come and get weighed again.
Luna is exactly the same weight as Betsy when she came home, and I'd say that Betsy has a lighter build than Luna. The more substantial build of show lines doesn't translate to kgs. (Don't know how many times I find myself saying this.....). It's coat, and a bit more substance, it doesn't make them massively heavier dogs.
Obviously not, but she just seems so round
She does look it, alright! You wait until she moults that coat - you ain't seen nothing yet when it comes to Labradors moulting.
I've been revelling in the face I can scratch and tickle her all I want and it doesn't budge. You're not telling me it doesn't stay that way forever?
To be honest, Ella was a little on the fat side when we got her. Luna probably looks more like Ella did at 6 weeks
I think Luna looks beautiful. It will be interesting to see how she looks and grows in comparison to W&S. I guess that means we'll need to see lots of photos of the three of them over the coming months
Hi Ziggys sire is a very large do and Ziggys paws are enormous, at 16 weeks he is 18.4 kg some puppy fat but a lot of growing to do
Kibs is 31KG @ 37 weeks
Sparky is 58.40 lbs at 26 weeks at the vet. Stopped weighing him now myself since he's too heavy to try to carry and hold still at the same time. Our puppy trainer said he looks a little overweight and his ribs can only be felt if you press down. She showed me her lab/golden mix and it was very easy to feel his ribs. Cutting back on his diet even more. He has grown in height now and starting to look lankier.
