Wolfi has doubled his size, oh my!


Roxy the Critter Farm pup is totally annoyed by the little whipper snapper. She can't believe how he has grown since she last saw him. She had secretly wished that he'd go away, go back where he came from or simply vanish from the face of her earth. Poor Roxy!

When we brought Wolfi home July 17, he weighed 3 lbs. 9 oz. The vet gasped last week when she put him on the baby scale: 7 lbs. 8 oz! He has practically doubled himself since he moved in with us. Is this something we should be worried about? Mini Wolfi turning into GIANT Wolfi right before our eyes? I don't think so. He is not a ravenous eater and often ignores the food put in front of him. What he really fills up on is love. From the time he first tumbles out of his crate in the morning (after sleeping 10 or so hours!), he wants to be held, kissed, hugged, petted and played with. Or is it the other way around? From the moment Bill and I stumble out of bed, open the crate and Wolfi falls out, we are the ones who want to hold, kiss, hug, pet and play. And it doesn't feel silly at all. In fact, it's a marvelous way to start our day!

I know exactly what you mean. My Zuni is truly my best friend. Yeah I know she's a dog but don't tell her that. I got her from Freecycle about 2years ago...she came from an abusive home and well she ain't now. I just put a pic up of her on my blog. Love her I do!!!
Blessings

Poor Roxy...she slept most of the day today trying to recover from her day of puppies yesterday. And, shhhhhhh....please don't tell Roxy this, but I think Wolfi is just the cutest thing. Even when he bites my toes with those needle-sharp teeth of his. :-)

Wolfi is such a sweetie and to have Roxy as a playmate what more could you ask for!

It's good that he is growing big and strong. He will give you many years of love and companionship.
