Chief 9 weeks old and getting healthy!
On Wednesday my baby boy turned 9 weeks old. I took him to the vet for his 2nd shot and to get a fecal exam to make sure he is all cleared of his nasty hookworms and other parasites and he IS! I am so happy that I was able to save this baby's life! Also.. he gained 4 lbs in 1 week! I am tracking records of his weight now...
6 weeks - 4 lbs 2 oz
8 weeks - 6 lbs 8 oz lbs
9 weeks - 10 lbs 2 oz

Can't wait to see how much he gains when we go back for his third shot at 12 weeks!

My gosh he's cute! Thanks for sharing.

He's very cute! Just remember that a slow, steady growth is best (they will have growth spurts however). Pups normally gain 1-2 lbs a week, so be sure you keep him lean for his growing joints.

I love that first picture of him .... so sweet!

Yay! He sure is cute.

Sweet puppy-he looks very happy

Good going. I'm sure he'll give back in full measure in the future!

Thanks everyone! And Gal - I def agree. The vet said he probably gained the weight so quickly in the 1 week because of how badly infected he was and he wasn't really eating and now he has an appetite of a horse. I still feed him 1- 1.5 cups a day distributed into 3 different times. He usually doesn't even eat 1 cup. He is sure feisty though. Love this sweet baby to death.
