Puppy Growth chart

This is a little tidbit that I have found and am testing it out for accuracy.  The first section seems to be a bit off, that or I just get the oddballs...  You will see on the right where I have charted my dogs as an evaluation point.  

Generally the 8 and 12 week estimates seem to be most accurate.  At 8 weeks I triple the weight and add 1/2lb, at 12 weeks I double the weight and add 1/2 lb.  Now if I am estimating over the 7 lb weight mark it is simply not predictable.

I have noticed that my Poms usually reach their full height (at the whithers) by the time they're 7-8 months old, but they continue to fill out till around 15 or 16 months.  I have also noticed that a clear/solid color pom will have its full structure at around 7 months and a parti or parti-factored will be  closer to 5 months, but the parti coat seems to come in later than the clear colors.

As far as the coat goes it normally depends on the dog and how thick the coat of mom and dad are and whether the dog is male or female. The males get their full coat younger, usually right after their first big coat blow which happens around the 1 year mark. The females often don't get full coat until they are 16-24 months, sometimes only after a first litter.   

This data is by no means gospel, just my notes on my puppies.
