How Does Milton Measure Up?

Our little goldendoodle, Milton, arrived to Texas at a measly 7lbs, but he is swiftly gaining lots of weight.  Everything's bigger in Texas, right?  Milton's final poundage should hopefully be somewhere between 70 - 95 lbs.  He will be a big dog for sure, but goldendoodles seem to store a lot of bulk in their fur with a lightweight body hidden underneath.

To chart Milton's foray into adulthood, monthly we will seat him on the same chair in our living room to document his growth.  These shots will directly go against our mantra of "No Milton on the furniture or in the bed."  Likewise, the wood of this particular chair is as soft as a hot dog in Milton's world, so it is highly susceptible to little fangs.  Regardless, we will do anything for a good shot.  Here is the June installation:

 Despite our best intentions on the no furniture policy, see the below.  Early this morning, I noticed Milton atop the counch when he barked to show how proud he was of himself.  Some dog.
