At almost 4 months...Alfie weighed in at 20.2 lb at our vet's office today. Dr. Boggs thinks he's on track to grow to about a 45-lb ...that's considered "standard" size for doodles, or large in layman's terms. A great size for a guide dog! He was one of the larger puppies in his litter, as I recall.
So far out of my limited experience raising pups for GDTx (he's #3), Alfie is the most intense learner. He loves, loves, loves his work. Yesterday he went over and nuzzled his jacket and sat by the front door in hopes of a walk...before we'd even had a chance to let him outside in the morning! Hasn't he ever heard of a shower and breakfast?! Silly boy!
