    At 7 weeks Cooper was 6.5 lbs. Full grown she is 77+- and stands 25" at the withers.

    Cooper was on the small size as a pup, but I don't think I have ever seen a 7 week Lab pup that weighed 12 lbs.

    I have a related question. If a puppy in the litter is eating well and healthy but has always been a full pound less that then rest of his litter mates (and smaller all around) do you think it's likely that he'll be a smaller dog when full grown or do the smallest often catch up?
