Fretting, as usual...
Yesterday, I went online to see how puppies grow. How big will my Punkin be? He has already topped 6 lbs, which is 1/3 the size of Pickle, though this picture makes him look bigger. I was prepared to find that he would triple his size. And was I surprised. Small dogs reach their full size at 5 months. And, suddenly, it looks like he will remain really small, for this household, anyway. He may top out at about 8 lbs. As with anything, one never knows. I also looked at pics of other Shipoos. They are enormously diverse. Some have curly poodle hair. Some have really short noses. Punk didn't really look like any of them, though his coloring was there in abundance. He is, of course, much cuter than most. And has the sweetest personality to boot. So, what will be, will be. Despite all my web searching and fretting.
