I can play! Saphira is 2 days older than your puppy and yesterday she weighed in at a whopping 26.6lbs! She's not exactly a dainty, delicate flower.

I think she weighed a little over 15lbs at 7.5 weeks when she came home.

They grow in spurts, don't they? Wonder how long you'll be able to weigh her by picking her up and holding her?

you have a big baby huh? how big are her parents. dia's parents are under 70 pounds so she is supposed to be around that size when she gets bigger, if she follows parents. little is better, less food... haha :P

My boy is 17 pounds at 12 weeks based off a vets scale. My home scale wasnt very accurate doing what you did, his weight was higher. Didnt know that until I went to the vet yesterday.

Her father is listed as 90lbs and when I met him in person, he doesn't look super huge but he has some serious bone and a massive head. Her mother is listed as a medium large and when I saw her in person I would have guessed that she was about 70lbs.

Saphira doesn't look like she's going to weigh that much, you can see a hint of ribs when she moves but you pick her up and she's just solid puppy. When I found out I was getting a female (whole litter turned out to be girls so there went my reserved male ) I just kinda figured she'd be about mom's size and that's fine with me but the little moose seems pretty big for 12 weeks.

nothing wrong with a good little female pup i have actually had males my entire life, and i was looking for a female because they are traditionally smaller. so i went looking and lucked out completely. the litter i got her from was 1 male, 7 females. they were 5 weeks old when i found her... and the thing is people put deposits on males, and instead of taking a female, they are waiting for the next litter of pups. so Melinda had 3 extra females that had not been placed yet. I fell in love with her little smile the moment i looked at her picture online. she was originally "gina" vom gildaf, but i wanted to name her diamond (pronounced the German way) so we compromised with gem (had to be litter letters) we just call her dia she is the love of my life now!

I must see pictures when your girl gets bigger..
btw, have you seen that one growth chart that one owner used on their dog zeus, i took out his information the way he said and put my pups, its awesome!!!

Julie,

Haha, I was actually dead set on a male and it never really occured to me that there wouldn't be at least 1! I had the option to move my deposit to another litter but the breeder had advised me to go with this pairing originally and since this was my first working line, I went with his suggestion and decided a female would be just fine. So I went and picked Saphira out of 4 black females and she was a fireball even at 7 weeks. She's a ton of puppy and I've been in tears more than once with her but I can't imagine how boring my life would be without her.

You can see updated pics of her in the Social Saphira goes Shopping thread if you want to see her at 12 weeks.

Post some more pictures of Dia!
