It doesn't reflect my own golden's growth, that's all I can say. And my golden is right in the standard range for a male golden, he's about 68 lbs.
I didn't respond to the poll, b/c the answer I wanted wasn't there. One of the poll questions asks if goldens typically fall in those ranges, well I certainly see many goldens that outweigh the standard, so I don't know how to answer your question as to accuracy? I suppose I could say that yes, many goldens are outside of that range, but there also much larger than the standard (in my opinion, the reason to care about that is b/c of the hip and elbow problems that goldens are predisposed to.)
Oh, and my male was in the 50 lb. range at 12 months and not into the 60 lb. range until closer to 2 years when he completely filled out.
