heh heh I just figured out who the exception is...

Maika! She's a large but still growing, right? :D

maika, aka our styrofoam dog, will never be more than 80 lbs fully grown IF she even manages to get that heavy!! so... she'll stay in that category for good :) Her weigh-in a the vets last saturday was a measly 71 lbs, for a one-year old akita. goes to show the BYB genes in action! :o

Yeah, Boo's a styrofoam doggy too. Everybody expects him to be a lot heavier than he is. For the first 4 years of his life he was around 80lbs. Now, he's 90, and I guess he's finally done growing (even though my brother asked me last week if he had gotten bigger again).:D

Tucker is just the opposite, he looks so small when all curled up in a ball, and even standing, he doesn't really look that heavy. most ppl don't believe us when we say he's 50 lbs.

I suspect that Angie is small for a 6 month old Standard Poodle, she is only 39 pounds. Not terribly thin, good health, just small. Fine by me, she's a really nice size.

Breeder lady said that she thought Angie would probably be quite small and calm. She loves to play but is living up to expectations.

Neat pole - so many options (the exception seems to be for people who have a small dog with a medium or large dog:p )

Dodger is most often 60lbs but it does depend on his fitness level. Most people think he's about 40lbs - his chest is what weighs him down:D

Ours range from Cass and Macie at 42 pounds to Cole at about 65. I think we have almost 300 pounds of dogs living here... Hey!! No wonder we're going through so much food! :crazy:

I picked a couple choices on the poll because I have Candi who is 12lbs and Rocko who is 68lbs. pretty big difference lol.

Maybe need to change the heading ......... "one choice per dog" ??????
2 minis ..... 2 mediums.... 2 large ..... :evil:


I know Nikki is like having muliples when she becomes hysterical does she count as 2 smalls :p

I voted my choice is not here since I have 4 dogs ranging from 12 lb to 85 lbs

132 for The Lad, 97 and 86 for The Goils when last weighed at the clinic. Bridie is a chunky monkey :pawprint: though and could stand to drop a few pounds.

I think I messed up. I believe I am the exception with 1 giant, 3 minis, 1 medium and soon to be 1 large.

Even though they are the same height, Bronwyn is a medium at 60ish pounds and Fingal is a large at 80ish pounds-and to me, they are both medium sized! Although when we're out walking, many people avoid "the big black dogs":sad: .

Hunter's weight varies from 85 to 90 pounds, depending on how much time he spends around the "grand-parents":rolleyes:

Cassie, in the last poll, I thought was 25 pounds, but her last weigh in was at 31, so she moved into the medium category. She is a large dog in her mind though;)

Libbyp, I think medium is like Cockers...mine are goldens and everytime I buy accessories for them it says large.

Yeah, Buster fits into the top end of the medium range....but all the clothes and stuff I buy for him is large :shrug: I consider him to be large....but maybe because of the amount of energy he puts off, he seems alot bigger than he actually is :)

but all the clothes and stuff I buy for him is large

So he's a "YO" dog :D

Keep in mind that the creators of this poll are large breed lovers... Boo is large but wears x-large things. It's the clothing/accessory sizing system that's off.:D
