Even though this post is about Week 45, Maddie is actually 48 weeks old or 11 months. Recall that the weight contest ends on her first birthday, July 2nd. A few days ago, Maddie weighed in at 59 pounds meaning she only gained one pound in the last month. So the contestants positioned the best right now are Sylvie M (60), Hazel (59.9), Claire K (59.3), Cynthia (60.5), and Ivey E (59.5). I will take her to the vet that day to get an accurate weight if she does not surpass 60.
