Charley is in between 10 and 12 lbs, and I'm guessing he is more than he should be. Not overweight or anything like that, we're taking him for long walks everyday. Just wondering....

What does the vet say?

Ollie is 8 1/2 to 9 lbs. My vet's office has a store and I go there fairly reguarly and put him on the scale while I'm there. It's one of those large scales down on the floor and it never gives a precise reading--always fluctuates between 8 1/2 and 9. We tried getting him on the small, kitty scale once and he'd have nothing of it, lol.

Nemo was a whopping 12 pds. After his Patella surgery last December (06) he had to be put on a diet cause his legs can't have pressure, it's no good for them. He is now at 81/2 pds :biggrin:
I WOULD have still been totally in love with him at 12 :wub: :biggrin:

At the vet they always weigh him, but don't say anything about it, so I figure it's normal, but still most of the malts are much smaller than him. Maybe it's just muscle, he could take indefinite walks if it were up to him :biggrin:

HE is just a bigger MALTESE is all. I don't know where you got him, but I got Nemo from a petstore not a reputable breeder so god knows who his parents were. I know if you go through a reputable breeder they give you a pretty close estimate of their adult weight. Your pup is adorable who really cares what he weighs, he's perfect in ur eyes, right :wub:

Ollie Bollie is 4lbs 2ounces still. He's stuck in his growth pattern! I do have a feeding question, but I will put that in a different thread!

Love and Peace 2 all!!

Ellie is 1.5 pounds and Angelo is 2.5 pounds. I'd love them the same if they were 10 pounds. Such sweet bundles of joy our furballs are.

Coco has gained a pound since her first birthday. She's two now and weighed 5 pounds a couple of weeks ago when we saw the vet.
