Let's see your puppy's weight gain on a graph!

I've been keeping a week by week spreadsheet of my pup's height and weight progress. Another member, @camperbc was curious as to how our pups would differ, so I added his pup's weights to the graph as a fun comparison

I thought it'd be fun to include a lot more members into a spreadsheet

I also would like to see how specific pups progressed. We can find the general weight chart of the average, but would be neat to see individual pup's growth as I think some interesting results may show up (pups starting off slow then shoot up in weight and vice versa pups starting big and slowing down early)

So here's my plan. Everyone is open to participate. I don't care about your pup's age. 8wks to 1+yrs, I'd like it all! I'd also like a smattering of those who had pups start big or small. Dogs that became massive at 1yr or even fun sized GSDs

I'd really like weekly weight checks, but if you were only able to check once a month, then I will average the weight out for the weeks in between (my chart won't put lines and could become confusing with dots)

This is not scientific. I'm doing this purely for fun and hope that others would find some fun in this as well

I need nothing more than your pup's weight

Ex of format:

10wks- 11lbs
11wks- 13lbs
12wks- 16lbs
etc...

I hope I can get a dozen+ people to participate

So if people would post up their weights, I'll go ahead and start throwing together the chart! Pic is of my pup and camperbc's pup to give you an example of what I'll be doing (My pup's height and the Target Weight won't be on the graph)

NOTE: This is not for worrying if your dog is too under or too over. This is just for fun. However, those worries about being too under may find interesting data from other pup's who may also be "too under"

Just in case anyone thinks their puppy is too small, I wanted to give you all this info

At roughly 2.5 weeks old Shadow weighed 1.45lbs(that's less then a can of pop)
6 weeks- 7.4lbs
7 weeks-8.9lbs
8 weeks-10.12lbs
9weeks-11.6lbs
10weeks 12.24lbs
12 weeks -14.1lbs
16 weeks -19.85lbs
24 weeks -27.2lbs

At 1 year she weighed 34.6lbs
She currently weighs 49 lbs, and could lose a few. Normal weight is just over 45lbs. She is now 7 years old. Yes she is small, but look at how slowly she grew! My point is that charting growth is great but don't get hung up on numbers. Just like people they all grow at the correct rate for them and they will mature to the correct weight for them.
