My Meeko was 7 pounds when we got him at 9 and a half weeks, then at 16 he had shot to 23 pounds. He was only expected to be about 40 pounds fully grown, but now at almost 7 months old he's up to 43. Can't wait to see how much more he gets to!
Mike has averaged 1.8 pounds per week. My little man isn't going to stay little very long. I'm excited and saddened at the same time.
I was standing in a check out line. A disabled man in a wheelchair had his very old, large dog with him. The dog lay down on the floor very slowly. When his person ask him to get up, it was painful to watch. I ask the mans wife how old the dog was, she said "10 1/2 years". My eyes filled with tears....just 10 1/2 short years.
I came home to a wiggling, happy puppy that adds sunshine to my life everyday!
