I wouldn't trust the chart. I read the chart too and Arthur was super heavy when he was young but his weight has stagnated at 2.6kg (5.7lb) for about 3 months now and it doesnt really look like hes growing. He is eating more but the weight isnt coming.

I just checked the chart and really can't go by it. Kelly was 2lbs at 9 weeks old and according to the chart she should be about 5 1/2 lbs, she's 2 1/2 years of age and spayed and weighs about 4.5 lbs but, with her build if she gained a pound and then some it would be too much for her but, she's not fragile feeling or too skinny by any means (that girl loves her groceries), she's just a petite girl.

Isabella was a from a litter of two. The breeder emailed us after they took Kokusz in for an xray. The birth was at the vet clinic as they worried it would be complicated. And it was--Isabella's brother was breach and the vet couldn't turn him. He died a half hour after he was born. Isabella was fairly large as well. All of her family members are 5 lbs or less. Isabella was 1 1/2 to 2 times the size of their normal pups. As she was a singleton, she didn't have to fight for food. But her rate of growth slowed down as the weeks passed. When we brought her home at 13 weeks she was 3 lbs. Zita says she feels she will weigh between 6 and 7 lbs. Time will tell.
