We went to the vet today to pick up some more Revolution, and Domi at 14 weeks weighs 39.6lbs. He's eating 4.5 cups of food a day. He actually looks perfect...he's a little "leggy" right now, but I've noticed that he tends to grow taller before he "bulks up"...I think a growth spurt is about to explode with him soon.

I think he's growing at a nice, steady pace so far.

it is really funny to see the different lines maturing differently..I have Cooper who is tall and skinny at just 8 months old, he turned 9 months on the 10th , he is 165 pounds and lanky.

Peanut my apricot girl is 3 days younger, she is a short stought 110 pounds.

Bronson is going to be 2 on april 20 and he is a skinny 235.

His mom Jazzy I am so happy to report is 200 pounds, she was over weight but now with her excersise and fitness program she went from 225 to a slim and fit 200..

That is all

OG BTW Bella is 9 weeks and is 25.7 pounds!!!

I took Caesar (16 Months) to the Vets today for a wellness exam, and some routine blood work. Hey weighed in at 181 lbs, and the Vet said he would like to see him down to 160 lbs. Caesar is NOT fat. He gets plenty of exercise and has big bones. Do I need to see another Vet.? or is his heart in the right place. He says the lower weight is better for his heart and gives him better quality of life? He still has more growing to do. I think he is fine the way he is. He is 31.5 inches from the ground to the top of his back.
Is the Vet correct? Should I cut back on his yum yums? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ya I think so too. Maybe the Vet isn't familiar with the breed. I can't see bringing him down 20 lbs. He would look sick. Im not thrilled with this vet anyways. I need to find a new Vet.. Id love to find one familiar with big breeds. I'm gonna ask around. I think it would be unhealthy if he dropped 20 lbs.

Tommy you should ask on the Forum. There are plenty of mastiff people on this Forum that live in your state.

Hi Tommy,

I think he looks perfect.

If you want to look for another vet, are you on either RawfedNE, or the New England Mastiff list? Another option is you can't be all that far from where K works.

Tommy one thing to keep in mind since I think you are raw feeding is that it has been my experience that raw fed dogs are heavier on the scale then kibble fed.  If you ever fed kibble you probably noticed in increased muscle definition over the period of just a few weeks when switching from where he was even as a young dog.  Normally raw fed dogs are heavily muscled but that certainly doesn't mean they can't be over fed and look fat either but I think he looks good so don't worry about it.

Joanne... Jazzy and her diet... I need to know what you did?  
Our Yonder was at the vet Friday and weighed 237...  several months back, the vet said she should loose about 20 pounds (she was 215 then)...   OOPS!  Went the wrong way!  
She LOVES food more than any dog we have!   It's like every meal is her last one!   We're putting green beans now in her food... filler.     But she still acts starved.   She eats about 4 cups 2x a day.... 
I keep thinking now that the weather is getting better, they can be outside more... that should help!  
Anyway, wondering what you did for Jazzy...  
HELP!

Does anyone feel like posting some average weights of their litters at 2 weeks?

I am curious. 

Mine run from 3.14 Purple girl down to 2.7 - Blue girl the others are 3.2-3.8.  All are healthy and thriving - jut wondering what the average range is for different breedings.  Tamara - you don't count LOL ;-).  You know I'm teasing because your kids probably break the scale ;-).

My last few litters averaged about 4-6 pounds at 2 weeks.   Although I can't find the weights for Herbie and Maddy.  I do believe they may have been a bit more.

Monica,

I have weights for my 3 for almost every day that I have an update for on my webpage if you ever want to look:  http://www.everaftermastiffs.com/litters/cid_sparky/index.shtml

FYI -- for the website, I called Day 1 as the day they were born (day 2 was when they were 1 day old, etc).  So, their 2 week birthday was actually Day 15 and weights were:  
Sparkle - 4lbs 7.5oz
Coda - 4lbs 8oz
Halley - 4lbs 8.5oz.

Hope this helps!

HOLY COW - Was gonna tell Becki she could not play either, but Giselle oh boy!  LOL. 

Thanks gals - I hope more participate.  Especially those that have older pups now that we can see. 
 
I know that genetics play the role of what will actually be, but do any of you find that weight at this age plays a part in the future of the dog?  If not, at what age, if any, do you feel what they are weighing it at is a consideration if the future outcome?

Coda and sibs seem like they are going to be big dogs -- at the very least, they will be tall dogs :-)  BUT, I will say though that I had weights on another litter of similar lines and the pups were much  bigger than mine (mine were about a week behind in weights) and the other litter is smaller now.  I also know Cider, Surf and sibs were about a week behind in weights to Cider's puppies.  So, I don't really know when you would know what size they will be but I don't think it will be in the first 8 weeks. 

I've felt like those smaller litters tend to have bigger puppies and also, those who are on mom the entire time and aren't supplemented are bigger as well.  Might just all be a coincidence but that's what I have noticed just in the litters that I've watched grow in the past few years.....I wonder if anyone else agrees with this...

Duke
4.25lb at 14 days
25lb at 8 weeks
67lb at 15 weeks
80lb at 4 mo
113lb at 6 mo
147lb at ~7.75mo
195.6lb at 17.25mo
I think 225-230lb when grown and lean

I have read to double the weight at 6 months to get the mature weight.

You guys are all the best!  This is really fun for me and Kevin, my husband, is having fun with the "scientific" part of the journey.  Today we will weight and measure and then track them every week from here on out with the measuring.  I will post for fun next to their pictures later today after we get it all done.  They are two weeks today.

This will be the first litter I've really tracked and watched, etc.  Of course, it will take years to put together a cohesive chart that will hopefully offer some helpful results, but its fun to get started.

At exactly 15 months the Finn monster weighs 170. He was 151 in January. . . lol, how can 20 pounds look like soooooo much?!!!! I feel like there's a scale error!

Maybe as he "slows down" (i.e.- sleeps one hour in the afternoon :0D) he is accumulating less muscle?  He was very muscular in January. . . lol that's the only explanation I can think of because he totally looks like a different dog!
