So about a month ago I got the sweetest cutest boxador...she was 10lbs. Now a month later I swear she's 4x bigger and 25lbs. Don't get me wrong, I love her like crazy (especially since she has figured out PL). I just didn't realize that my sweet tiny pup was only going to be small for like 3 days. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> She's super skinny but eating a ton (she's been wormed). I just didn't know she'd get so big so fast. It's hard having a 3m old puppy be so big. Luckily she's very smart and listens well. Once she gets too wound up and bitey I say no in a growl, pop her into the crate and she usually ends up napping right away. Anyway, I know that most of you are seasoned dog owners and I've been paying attention. Thanks to your suggestions I am hopefully raising a well adjusted dog.<br><br>
Here's a pix from last week...<br><a href="http://www.dropshots.com/day.php?userid=157131&cdate=20070415&ctime=132311" target="_blank">http://www.dropshots.com/day.php?use...5&ctime=132311</a><br><br>
Her name is buttercup (from the princess bride)

LOL, just you wait <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Austin was 14 pounds when we brought him home. He doubled his weight in a month, and it seemed like every time I weighed him he had doubled again. He's 15 months old now, and weighs 100 pounds.<br><br>
I don't think your pup will be *quite* that large.....but she's gonna be big <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Congrats!
