Weight check

Post by Bess Exeter » 28 Apr 2010, 20:57

I have read with interest the difference in weights of our labradoodles and how varied they are at even a young age. Even when told about their parents and seeing their siblings there is no guaranty how big they will grow :roll: Bess's brother lives very close to us and is at least 2 inches taller and much wider but then he is a boy :lol:

I decided to get Bess weighed today as she's 1 year and 6 days old, not that it's the easiest to do. I don't know whether it's the vets or the scales she dislikes? I thought it would be easier this time being older but I was wrong. Eventually got Bess on the scales, seated and she looked petrified :shock: not surprising they all remembered Bess from the last time at 7 months old :roll: :lol:

Anyway I was surprised she's only 21.4 kilos (when still) so hasn't put on much weight since 7 months weight 19 kilos. Bess is our healthy & dainty little girl :D

That IS surprising! She doesn't look at all teeny :shock: Poppy is a trim 18kg, but she looks like a hairy whippet - Bess looks like a healthy normal doodle girl :D

That's strange, Dotty was weighed at vets yesterday (may need to start a thread, am worried about her) and she is 21.4kg at nearly 11 months. I think she is about 21 inches tall. She was weighed in January and March and was 20.2kg both times so has only put on weight in the last month.

When Dillon was weighed at the vet 3 weeks ago he was 37.2kg :shock: :oops: and Darcy is 43kg :P

No wonder Bess gives them a wide berth :lol:

PS She is just perfect :mrgreen:

Bess weighs one kilo more than Rufus, Jayne :) He is 20.5 kg, very lean (although he looks solid) and very well developed muscles. Unlike Bess, Rufus adores the scales at the vets and can't wait to sit on them :lol: We call in about once a month for a weigh in and the staff are very generous with liver treats.....

Lottie was weighed at the vets yesterday and she is 16k. She will be 6 months old on 9th May. Vet reckons she'll be 25-30k when fully grown so a way to go yet. :shock:
