For those who are sick of dog stories, you can skip this, but Chico and Annie have just about doubled in size in the five weeks since we brought them home. As of yesterday, Chico was at 21.5 pounds and Annie was up to 18. At the vet on Monday, we mentioned that the breeders had said they’d top out at about 35 pounds. The vet just laughed. No, they’re going to be bigger, much bigger.
Fred and I kept looking at each other and the dogs on the way home. Oh my God! Forget buying that second medium-sized crate. We’re going to need a large. Good thing we like big dogs. But that’s a lot of puppy chow!
