    If this helps, Herman's biggest growth spurt was between 3-5 months, he was gaining 8,9 pounds per month. Now that's slowed down. He got really tall - He looked taller every time I saw him. He also got longer. He's almost 7 months now - the time of ATTITUDINAL changes I guess So be prepared for that around 5.5-6 months.

    Abbey was 14lbs at 3 mths. At 4 mths she's up to 18.5lbs. I didn't think she got that much bigger but I guess it's because I see her everyday.

    I always say they grow UP the first year and OUT the second...lol They get tall and gangly that first year and then fill out and get the wide head and body/chest during the second. Third year is when you know you have a true bully.

    Bacon went through a big spurt between 3-6 months, he seems to have leveled out in the mid 50's which is what he weighed in last week at the vet. We thought he was going to be closer to 65 but his body is just changing shape he isn't gaining more weight, he is almost 10 months now.

    I took Seamus to the vet at 15.5 weeks and he was 20lbs and then when I took him back a month later he was 28lbs. He is growing super fast! I think right now his body is bigger than his head so it looks kinda funny. Hopefully the two will catch up soon!

    Kaida's been a bit of a slow growing bully. Her front paws look huge to me, so I think she's just slow to progress which is good in the long run. She was 4.6 lbs at 8 wks, and at 20 wks now, she's 18.6lbs. I did notice that she got taller and longer at about 3 months?

    They may not finish filling out width wise until they are between 2 and 3. They will reach their adult height and length generally toward the end of the first year. Then you wait for them to "pop" and "pop" again. they will go through at least one "fuggily" stage where they are all disproportionate to what you hope for and expect.
