      weight is nothing more than a number... body condition is what is important... he should be a nice healthy lean.. the last 2-3 ribs should just be visible and his spine and hips should not show at all. He should have a well defined waist.

        118 isn't an abnormal weight at 14.5 months. He's out of rapid growth mode and will most likely gain weight slowly but not necessarily evenly. 2 months with no weight gain isn't really concerning. As Kahlua says go by body condition. Health wise providing he has good body condition, the thinner the better. Also even though Fromm says to keep him on the LB Puppy until 18 months, you might want to consider transitioning him to an adult food soon.
