The Runt

I know you have been anxiously awaiting some more puppy pictures, right?
This is the runt of the litter, weighing in at nearly a pound less than the rest of his siblings, but with no less energy or will to live.
One family on our litter list is completely smitten with him asked for a few extra photos, to which I happily complied.
But I just couldn't keep them in a folder on my desktop. They had to be shared with you all too. Even (and especially) this quite blurry YAWN.
Which was almost immediately followed by a vicious growl and bark aimed at the giant hand that was holding him.

I think I would bark if I was being held by a giant hand too.

Many times the runts grow and grow and become the big guy. Case in point, I had to have our Lab Otis because he was the largest of the puppies in his litter! Weighing in at 115 lbs now, ( eats anything left on the kitchen counter ) he still has a smaller chest, and, he sits like a girl!!!!!!!!
Our son Thom weighed in at 7 lbs at birth, but he was only 19 in long, now he is taller than Chris and out weighs him ( a lot ) . So, give the runts a chance, they have many months to make up for their size. Plus, by being so small, they get ALOT of attention:)
GO RUNTS!!!!!

Oh my goodness! I love him so much! I saw this and laughed because as soon as you sent the pictures to me I had to share them on my blog as well! He brings a smile to everyone's face who sees him. I can't wait to take him home! :)
