Liza petite?

Today I took Liza to the vet to check her weight, and like last month she has not put on any lbs. She is the same weight she was 2 months ago, 45.5. That means she hasn't grown in two months. She is 21'' high. She gets two cups of food per day (Fromm), and lunch consisting of some fruit plus yoghurt, a milk bone and the odd treat. The vet thought she looked great, very lean but not too skinny, and her overall health is excellent, it's just that I seem to remember Tess gained weight until she was about 10 months, and she stayed at around 60 from then on. Liza just seems to have stopped at six and a half months...Probably no big worry, I was just curious if anyone else had experienced this.

She probably just grew faster than Tess and is now really slowing down, because in comparison, Molly was only 18 inches tall at 6 months. She reached 21.75" and 50 lbs at 9 months and that is where she still stands at almost 12 months.

You maybe right, although Tess was 47.5 at 6 1/2 months....and Liza is almost 9 months now. We will see, she may still grow to be a big girl. On the plus side, she is an absolute sweetheart, no teenage problems yet.

Rain was about 45ish pounds at 6 months. Now at 10 months she's only gained about 10 pounds, When she was 5 months she was 18.5 inches tall and is now 22.5in tall, so she's gotten a tiny bit bigger..but not much

Kye was 50 lbs at 7 mo (didn't get a height) and piddled along with that weight for some months. We hit a slow growth after a year and now if I don't keep her busy she gains, so have to be careful to keep her active. She is lean but I was blown over when we had her check up last month and found she weighs 65 lbs! Wouldn't think it by looking at her. Mom was almost 70 lbs, so looks like she is leaning more this way. Hope not! She is 1 1/2 now.

Kye & Coop - the loves of my life
My little Biewer Yorkies - all 7 of them!

I want to surround myself with people who are "Cracked" for they are the ones that let the Sun Shine in.
