Weighing more is not a good thing in a breed prone to hip dysplasia (did I even spell that right?)
These are dogs not kids... Huge difference

I don't remember where my boy was around 6-7 months...but right now (he will be 3 in March) he's 71 or 72 pounds & that has been his weight since he was a year old...he's filled out more over the years. But all body structures are different. For his frame his weight is perfect.

I don't see it as a who weighs more competition, it's just comparing pups and how they're built. I was always curious about how big Frank would be, hearing what size other pups were at different ages was fun.
I dont' know about anyone else but among my set of friends we do compare our human babies and how much they weighed how tall they were at certain ages. , how fast they've grown and how they're built (like mom or dad)

I, for one, am anxious for my boys growth to slow down. If he wasn't so lean, I'd be very concerned about his future health. I still get the "he's so skinny" comments from uneducated people but the vet is very pleased with his physical condition.

Keep in mind, muscle weighs more than fat.

My Kira is 59 pounds @ 19 months, and runs faster than a speeding bullet!

Oh, sorry... wrong thread.

And here's a picture of Kira (smaller dog), with the 90+ pound, 6 month (available for sale) neighbor's pup, that my wife is BEGGING me to keep.

My seven month old is 66lbs at the moment and is nice and lean. As some posters have said it's not always great for a pup to be heavy as it can cause some problems with their hips.

As i have learnt, weight isn't that important as long as they're fit and healthy.
