Puppy's age - weeks vs months

I know there was a thread about this a couple of months ago, but I can't find it, so all help would be useful:)

My puppy was born on June 4. That would mean he'd be one month old on July 4th, right? But if you count weeks, he turns 4 weeks old tomorrow. So I'm confused about how people count their puppy's ages.

Is there a certain point where, when asked how old your dog is, you say in terms of months? [ex. after he turns one year old, he's "one year, one month" instead of 56 weeks?]

Months are an inaccurate way of counting, since they aren't all the same length. :) After 12 weeks or so, I just refer to my dog in general months or half months (She's 5 1/2 months). Nobody really listens anyway, and the vet knows her age in weeks before I even arrive at the appointment. :)
