Sammy (female 2 years old) weighs 60 lbs. cooper (male 1 year old) weighs 64 lbs. Sammy can lose 1-2 lbs and her weight would be ideal. cooper is at a perfect weight right now.

Last time we were at the vet, Dexter was 68 lbs. Everyone around me seems to think he is on the thin side, but I don't see it. I can feel his ribs and spine, but cannot see them. He has a visible waist from above and a tuck at his waist from the side. He is exactly where he should be. For some reason people seem to think if a dog his size doesn't weigh 90+ lbs you aren't feeding them enough.

Not sure how tall BaWaaJige is I will have to measure him but last time I had him weighed he was 74.6 at 1yr he is now 18mos and I think alittle over 75#. He is very lean.

Buddy weighs in anywhere from 70 to 73 pounds; he also thinks he's much smaller. Our other dog, Hiro, likes to curl up and lay with us on the couch, and Buddy tries to do the same but he's about 40 pounds heavier and twice Hiro's size! (Hiro's a little thing, 30 pounds maybe)

Cookie was about 50 pounds at her last vet visit, and she is 2 1/2. Many people who we meet think she's still a puppy because of her size.

I'll give you a visual...

From up:



And you can see the sideways view in my signature....

He is 78lbs and just about perfect for his height (23.5 inches).

Toby is average for a male, I think. He is 24" tall and weighs in at about 75 lbs (give or take a pound). He's a stocky build and very muscular, but lean.

Ellie, younger golden is 21.5 inches and 45 lbs at 2 and 1/2 years, her mother is 21.5 inches and 55 lbs. Both are breed standard in height, but a little small for standard (CKC is 60-70 lbs for bitches) in the weight category. I am always surprised by people who think they are still puppies because they are so small.

Beamer looks best around 62-64lbs. He usually wavers around there. I'm not sure of his exact height. I measured him once and he was 23" but that was with a yard stick so not exactly accurate, haha!
