Oh, you smarty!! But that is about right!

I asked my vet about it when my guys were small. I 'think' she said approximately double their 16 week weight. And that is pretty close to what my two ended up. Augie did gain another pound after his neuter at 16 months.

Yes, approximately is the closest you'll get I think (without knowing how big their parents were at that age vs. their full grown size). Puppies, just like children, go through growth spurts. I had a post on the forum here somewhere asking the same question when Cey was younger, maybe even 4 months. I can't remember exactly, but my impression now is that he was growing like a weed between 3-5 months, and I was worried that he was going to end up huge. But then he slowed down, and a few months ago weighed just over 11 lbs. (I think he's putting on his adult muscle mass finally now, I would guess that he will end up weighing between 12 and 13 lbs, so closer to his mother's weight than his father's). Anyway, it's fun to track them as they grow though!

Yes, what is going on with the emoticons???? Why is that being 'fixed'? It wasn't broke! Grrrr

Augie is larger than both his parents. Finn is larger than his dad, probably going to end up closer to his mom - a very solid feeling girl.

For another point of reference -- Benjamin's mom was about 10 lbs and his dad was about 13 lbs. He is now 10 1/2 months old, and as of yesterday he weighs 15.6 lbs -- and is still growing! I sometimes worry that maybe he is actually an Old English Sheepdog rather than a Havanese, and will end up weighing 100 lbs! Of course I will love him to bits no matter what size he is, but it would be nice if I did not have to replace his soft sided carrying case. Come to think of it, we might be there already.
