When I weighed the pups the day we brought them home, and then again 4 days later, they had each gained 2lbs….in FOUR DAYS! Sure, I can gain 2 lbs in under an hour but 2 lbs was a 25% increase in their body weight. I decided this was something I needed to somehow document.
I’ve been weighing the pups every Sunday and writing down the numbers, which shock me every week. It’s taken Niamh nearly 7 years to get to 40lbs. These showoffs are going to get there in less than 6 months.
Here’s what we’ve got so far.
8 weeks 9 weeks 10 weeks 11 weeks
Fred 8.2 lbs 11 lbs 12.4 lbs 14.2 lbs Gus 8.6 lbs 11.8 lbs 14.4 lbs 16.4 lbs
We will soon be moving to a nearby island just like Emily Elizabeth did for Clifford.
