Yukon still hasn't filled out yet and he's 20 months old. So I would imagine it might be different for every dog, but probably not for awhile. Razz

Yeah he turns 2 in September, but only weighs 35 lbs. He hasn't gained any weight in almost a year; but the vet isn't worried at all so it's normal for him to be scraggly I suppose. Razz

Oh okay that makes sense Oaks is 45 lbs but super skinny and tall I know it did take Nala about a year or two to completely be fluffy and what not but I wonder if he will just be slick and skinny

So, Ami was weighed today. A whopping 72.4 pounds (ish, he wouldn't stand still bounce ) He is now 2 yrs 8 mos, give or take 2 mos. Last year at just under 2 years old, he was 63 pounds. When we got him at 12-13 mos old, he was 59 pounds. Height is 24.5 -25 inches. Ish. (he doesn't stand still lol! )

Side view, he has a very definite tuck-up. From the top, with all his fur, there may be a waist in there but I can't see it. Ditto for seeing any ribs, backbone or hipbones. But, I can feel ribs lower on his sides quite distinctly, backbone is easily felt, hips, slightly padded but definitely can still feel the bones. The issue is, his ribs near his withers and over his back, very indistinct and the flesh there is definitely...fleshy. I can straddle him, put my hands on his upper sides and there is a lot of rolliness the the flesh there.

I know he's not supposed to be as lean as year old Archer, but, given the weight gain in 9 months, I'm wondering if I need to curtail his intake - any thoughts?

Amy, I think just coming out of winter our dogs will weigh a little bit more because they are not as active and I think nature packs some weight on in colder weather. I have no facts to back this up though. But I think once spring and summer hit, Ami will drop a few pounds on his own...and for sure on the Mt Washington hike Wink

I need to have my dogs weighed, how much should I deduct for fluff? LOL

Mishka ( pig ) 1 1/2 years old, weighs 43 lbs! Vet said she looked great though

Kohdi (bounce ) 2 1/2 years old, was squiggly on the scale and hovered between 58 and 61 and vet said he too looked great

Cora is 34 pounds at 20 weeks! She is also 20 inches tall now that may be a mistake on my measuring abilities, but I think it's right since she was 16 inches at 14 weeks!

Guys Cora has been the same weight for like 3 weeks shes about 36 pounds and she is 5 months/ 23 weeks and it seems like she isnt gaining weight? I feed her 3 cups of food a day 1.5 in the morning 1.5 at night, plus a dental stick when I leave for school and hot dog bits as training treats which I use on walks for heeling ect and for training whatever we are working on that week, my mom also gives her a biscuit treat a couple times a day after doing her little series of tricks for her. Cora gets about 2 hours of exercise a day with small walks and play dates with friends. Do you think I should feed her more or is it normal for her to slow down this much?

Leo slowed down around 5-6 months he stated eating much less then he used to. he went form 3 cups a day to 1 1/2 for the day, now he eats about a 1 1/2 to 1 2/3 cup for the day.

Ghost is going to be big, he is almost Leo's weight. by 10 weeks Leo was 16lbs, not sure if 16lbs at 10 weeks is normal Laughing or average.

What my dad used to tell new moms when they got frantic over babyie becoming finicky and eating next to nothing around a year-14 mos old:

A baby doubles his/her birthweight by about 5 months and triples is by about a year. To do that the eat...a LOT. Now, if they kept up that rate of eating/weight gain, they would be a bazillion pounds by the time they became adults!

Zoe - I have a sane head when it comes to health for myself, my husband and my kids. I can be a calm and thinking advisor to others...but when it comes to Ami or Archer, the stops are OUT. I am the biggest doggy hypochondriac going...he's too thin, he's too fat, he pants too much, he's not drinking enough water, too much water, he sleeps too much, why is he coughing when he drinks, is he walking funny?...and so on, and so on, and so on Rolling Eyes
