HOLY SMOKES!

So today I take the last 3 pups to the vet for a check up...just to be sure all is well. One of the three was going on a long trip today so I just wanted peace of mind. I was shocked when we weighed the two boys and they were 16 lbs at just turned 9 weeks old! No wonder my arms feel like they are breaking when I carry them!!

Of course the vet loved them all...

I never really keep track of what my puppies weigh at 8-9 weeks old....clearly these guys are mooses. Does you of you know what yours typically weigh? Working lines, as I know show lines do tend to run larger....

Re: HOLY SMOKES!

ok...Hawk , my usual puppy Poppa, does produce pups on the smaller side, so maybe I am just not used to "normal".

Re: HOLY SMOKES!

Brady was 12lbs at 8 weeks

Re: HOLY SMOKES!

LOL! Smack talk? nah...

They will end up well within the standard, just clearly have a lot of substance to them. Parents are titled, koer'd, and all that jazz.

Re: HOLY SMOKES!

They all seem to equal out in the long run, lol. Besides 16lbs at 9 wks, so was prob 13-14 at 8 wks. Normal.

Re: HOLY SMOKES!

Siren (She is DDR/Czech) weighed 12.3 at 8 weeks and 20.3 at 10 1/2 weeks. So I would guess close to what yours weigh at 9 weeks.. She was from a litter of 10. She has the "mid sized" of the females. (2 were larger and 2 were smaller at 8 weeks.)

Re: HOLY SMOKES!

Otto was 12 lbs at 8 weeks so I'm thinking that's about right. He was the second biggest male.
