Thank you - yes thank goodness he put on some weight.  We showed the vet some pics when we got him and he was astounded at how small he was.  Finally he looks like a normal roly poly puppy!

Lol thanks Kate for the nice words :) he's growing into his own now and become a amazing Doberman lol and I mean a man he's turning into quite the little guardian when dads away he's by my side at all times. Glad to know the little guy is alright and I hope you have so much fun with him. Oh and more pics please love seeing the little guys grow up :) we measured Ares and got a weight in him last week he was 25 inches and 50 pounds not sure if he's grown or anything this week but if so I'll let you know :)

Happy to report that Crash has had his second vet appointment and had his shots so in two weeks we can go out in the world:)  He is very healthy and very happy, his teething is getting better and he is starting some basic commands.

He went to see my sisters kids who are 5 and 3 and was an absolutely wonderful puppy, then came home and chewed us all up - lol

He is now 15 weeks and just under 22 lbs.  We love him to pirces and thank you for all the help here, I am glad he is finally getting healthy and a good healthy puppy weight:)

You've done an amazing job with him.. I love the way the light bounces off that 'already' shiny coat.. ( sometimes it take a while for that puppy fuzz to go away leaving that glorious 'sleek-as-a-seal' look.. )

I know everyone says the same thing.. but you might start to get used to it.."

JUST LOOK AT THOSE PAWS!!! LOL he's gunna be a biggun.

Can you imagine waiting til he got home to do the chewing?? He knew enough and had enough respect for the youngsters to wait. I'm astounded.. Bravo Crash.. and Bravo Crash's parents.. It takes a village..

Thank you Lady Kate:)

When the vet first saw him when we got him, you could see every bone in his body - they all thought he would maybe be 50 lbs, but now his paw is almost as big as the palm of my hand - they said he will much likely get much bigger.

As long as he is happy and healthy then so am I.

And yes, I can not believe how wonderfulhe was with the kids, my nephew must have gave him 100 treats, and then tried to pick him up by the skin - of course I stopped him, but Crash didn't even blink an eye:)
