Yeah I agree four pounds is tiny, it's funny tiny puppies worry me more than tiny kittens, maybe it's my exposure to cats I did a lot of cat rescue. Tiniest kitten I ever dealt with was a 1/2 pound or 3 weeks old. I never worried about her size maybe it's the tens of thousands of years cats have been that size.Twyla, with the addition of my Sphynx kitten, I became acutely aware of how four pounds is so very small. For the first few days, I found myself watching her little sides flutter up and down as she took each breath. I had nutri-cal on hand to encourage her appetite. Se was so tiny. Memories came flooding back to me of worrying over premie human babies. Just when I thought I could not stand another minute of worrying, the little cat started eating, and gaining weight. Six pounds is so much more robust. I don't see how you can stand it when your wee ones get sick, or go off their feed. Whew, I am so relieved to be past the scary stage.

All my puppies have been four pounds when I got them always had Nutri-Cal on hand, my mom's Pomeranian was a pound when she brought him home yikes that is tiny, little Meeko grew up to be seven pounds.
How tall is Oscar? And I forget how old he is. He's a cutie.Oscar is 4 3/4 pounds. I worry just picking him up! He seems so fragile I don’t want to hurt him. Tonight he was off his food and I had to go to work. Prayed he’s okay and he’ll eat when I get home, and no low blood sugar overnight. He’s the tiniest adult I’ve had, and really much smaller than the next one up who was only 5 lbs. ack!

I am actually happy with Lenny's size, he is petite but my hands are big so it makes photos deceptive looking. My girls are roughly the same height as Lenny but are longer bodied or as I often the have more booty and weigh two to three pounds more.Oh! I'm surprised. Lenny is a moose. Haha...j/k. He's light for his height kind of, huh.
PB I didn't take what you said as an insult truthfully I was actually kinda freaked out about how small Len was, I mean he was a half pound lighter than Bea was as a puppy but Len stayed tiny, whereas Beatrice filled out, her chest is two inches bigger and she is three inches longer . When I think of beautiful tiny poodles, your Maurice comes to mind.Oh, I didn't mean that as an insult...that he's a moose. I was being silly. I'm thinking he's a nice size...not too small. I wouldn't want one one bit smaller than Maurice. He's really quite small enough.
