From the day I brought Rocco home, he loved to play in these pebbles! Just another reason Rocco is the perfect name for him. Here, Rocco is 16 weeks old... they grow so fast!
Later today, we head to the vet for Rocco's 16-week weigh-in and third round of shots. The general rule for Havanese is to take their 16-week weight and double it to determine their approximate adult weight.
My guess is Rocco will come in somewhere around 6 pounds 8 ounces today. At 12 weeks he weighed 5 pounds 4 ounces, and at eight weeks he weighed 3 pounds 5 ounces. You can also take their eight-week weight and quadruple it... which puts Rocco right around 13 pounds as a grown up -- perfect for all the activities he'll do AND traveling in-cabin on an airplane.
Rocco at 16-weeks! Can't wait to see how his colors change too.
UPDATE: Rocco weighed in at 7 pounds 1 ounce at the vet today, and the vet proclaimed Rocco solid as a rock, of course! It'll be fun to watch him grow up!
