Huge puppy!

My Bobby has well and truely settled into our home now and is as gorgeous as ever :) I am however staggered at the size of him! He is now 10 weeks old and 14" tall!! We went to puppy socialisation last night and out of the 12 puppies there he was the tallest along with a 17 week old lab puppy! It doesn't matter at all what size he ends up but as his parents weren't very big (17" and 20") I hadn't expected him to be particularly tall. He also definitely has the stockiness of a lab and is a huge solid bundle of fluff :)
Just curious to know if anybody else had a puppy that was this big and how tall they ended up. Daisy is now 24" tall but I really can't remeber her being this big as a young puppy. I love the element of surprise with a doodle puppy and the fun of trying to guess what they will look like as adults :D

It's nice to have a substantial boy dog. He sounds like he will be quite big but then again his growth rate
might slow down shortly. Has he got very big paws now?
Daisy in your signature pic, looks the double of my Gracie.

I started measuring Beamish's weight at 8 weeks, but didn't include his height until 14 weeks. He has ended up bigger than both his parents though!

Beamish is a lovely chunky monkey though :lol:
If I had a boy dog, I would love a big chunky doodle boy like Beamish :mrgreen:

Your post reminded me to do another I had promised. I didn't measure height or weight really but he's now about 24" at 9 months and his growth has slowed a lot.

Here are comparison pictures though:

Your post got me wondering how big Roobarb is, so just measured him....assume you measure to shoulder height?.....

So Roobarb is 12 weeks old now and is 15 inches from floor to shoulder....

He has grown loads!! :shock:

Your post has just had me hunting all over the house for a tape measure ... Cassie is also 10weeks and is almost 13" and weighs 5.3kg... Her mum is a labradoodle and dad a miniature poodle the breeder and vets estimate her to be about 21".

I just measured Ghillie (at shoulder height) and he is 24" and nearly 25kg and he's only 5 months old!! So I definitely know what you mean about big puppies!! I'm just wondering how much bigger he's going to get?! I love having a big dog though! Although no one believes me when I tell them how old he is!
