Cody weighs 67 pounds which seems to be just right for him. His top weight was 87.6 pounds when he was one year old until 3 different people told me "You're dog is FAT!" and I slowly whittled him down. He's stayed at 67 give or take a couple pounds.

The numbers might be skewed down, since an age requirement wasn't specified. 6.5 month old Bella is 53 lbs, but not exactly "pint sized." for her age.

Murphy is quite tall and he ranges from 78-80lbs. His vet says he is perfect.

Saffron is much smaller and has put on weight since we adopted her. When we gor her she was too thin, then we spayed her and she didn't have to be in constant motion at the kennel. She is about 67 lbs and about 5 lbs overweight...I have been trying to get it off her to no avail and hten I found out that she has been supplimenting her diet by stealing Murphy's food and eating poop Now I'm on to her! She loves to lie around the house ans sleep too...some mornings I get up and it takes he an hour to drag her butt out of bed. The other morning I had to blast her out of bed. I guess our late nights are causing both her and me to be "night owls"

Max is a huge snuggly cuddly teddy bear who singlehandedly puts out more BTUs on a cold night than the best furnace I could ever find.

Unfortunately, in summer, he is still putting out BTUs as he snuggles right up against me at night.....

Flem is almost 9, spayed, around 21 inches tall and is right at or above the 55 lbs mark, depending on how much wiggling she does on the scale. She usually gains a bit in summer because it is too hot to have as much exercise.

Our last visit at the vet, Walnut was 65lbs.
The visit prior to that, he was 68lbs.

- He's 12mths old
- gets 1-2 hours of exercise/play on weekdays
- gets 1-2 hours of exercise/play twice on weekends (so 3-4hrs)

Do they normally gain more wight after 12months? He doesn't seem to be putting on any additional weight, so I'm wondering if he's done growing.
