Growth Spurt?

1875 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  cocoandjane
As we would say back in Da Bronx... Ozzie is "growin' like a Bastid!". I haven't had perceptual distortions since my college years in the 1970s so I know I'm not seeing things. Ozzie seems have made a quantum growth spurt since just last week. He just passed 6 months old and suddenly he is much taller, longer and more massive. I don't know what he weighs as we haven't weighed him since he first came home with us.

Anyone more experienced with Doodles want to comment on their rate of growth?

Yes, Ozzie just went through a spurt....
Take him to any vet and ask if they would mind weighing him
.....they usually don't mind a bit.
(Or we have a couple of pet stores
that have scales they can get on....)
I think it is interesting to keep track of their growth....
Coco hates the yard stick, but I trick her into
holding still and letting me measure her.
Do a search on this forum and find the growth chart formula.
Except you may not know what he weighed at 4 do it.

Again, I love your avatar!! You always have good ones!

We used that method for a long time....but they are both so heavy now, and my sons are rarely is easier for me to drive 1/2 mile to the Canine Commissary and run in and have them step on the scale themselves....
