You'll know when you know... when she's done growing. LOL.

Tucker was that big too. I thought I had a moose. But his growth tapered off. He's now 25" at the shoulder, and weighs 75 lbs. my vet said that genetics trumps all.

Really cute puppy! And I bet you think twice about picking him up now!

Fannin was 22lbs at 10 weeks. He's is almost a year (1/31) and now weighs 82lbs. Vet still thinks between 90 and 100 when he is done growing.

I didn't mean to sound like bigger is better. I was just saying how big he was for the OP. I'm constantly asking the vet if he is too big and until he says Fannin is overweight I'm not going to freak out.

I think we are on the road to standard size. 13.5 weeks @ 15 lbs 10 oz. I figure he will be around his parent's size when all is said and done. We are in no rush to increase weight. He's been fed, given treats and gets exercise.

To the OP, your boy is soo cute. But, it is up to you not to let him get up to 130 pounds.
I don't think any Golden should weight 100 or even 130 pounds.
My Toby is a broad boy, big head, he weighs about 83 pounds and I can still feel his ribs. He is well within the height standard for a golden. But he is not allowed to get any heavier than he is now, in fact, I am trying to get him down a few pounds because of his arthritis.
