I have to agree with Daisy's mom, our Vet said 15-20 pounds.  Gidget is 16 pounds and perfect in everyway.

 :angelwings:   :fluff:  The breeder I got Oliver from told me he would probably weigh between 8-10#.  At two years he weighs l6 1/2 # and has held steady there.  I can easily feel his ribs, breast bone, shoulder bones, etc.  I think he is a little longer than a lot of bichons.  My vet told me the average weight she sees in bichons is 12 - 20#.  I also thought I would be able to easily carry Ollie around or even put him in one of those little purses - not. :fluffyahoo:  Even so I think he has the sweetest little body and I love every precious ounce of him.

I enjoy reading the information Del, I know when I had Bella, she was about 5 pounds (or less) I would carry her non stop. I still carry her but I can't for so long.

My 1 year old Bichon, Dewy is a whopping 25lb and he's a lean mean fighting machine.  The vet says he's on the bigger end but that he is in great shape.  We were also told that his parents were on the small size and that Dewy probably wouldn't get bigger than 10lbs so who knows.  :original:

Sasha must be a very little Bichon - she's an adult and only weighs 6 and 1/2 pounds!!

Sasha is a tiny little girl.  Noah is about 15 pounds so he is on the larger side.
