Hi everyone. I'm glad I found this forum. My wife and I are first time dog owners and have a new Cavalier puppy. His name is Max and has been a joy in our lives. He's been with us since mid January. One thing that surprised us is that how fast he grew up in such a short period of time over the last couple of weeks. One minute, he was this tiny ball of energy and now, he's maturing before our eyes faster than we imagined. When we took him to the vet in February, he was 12 weeks and weighed about 3.5 lbs and yesterday was his 16 weeks and now weighs 6.7 lbs. He's growing like a weed.

One question for this forum, is what can we expect over the next few weeks with his growth spurt? It seemed like he lost his puppy fur and looks leaner. Hoping that his fur will grow back and fill out some more.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
