I finally have a SMALL DOG!!!

If it's a non-human, non-Pit Bull, family member, post it here!

We have a dog who comes to daycare here that reminds me so much of Truman. She is only 9 or 10 months old, and has to be close to 100 pounds by now. She looks like an EMORMOUS Black Lab, BUT her parents were both known and she is a German Wirehair Pointer/Leonberger mix.

They're like service dogs gone wrong.

I will always remember when I got Truman. I had lost my second dog, Carlos, to cancer - within months of losing Louie, my black Lab, to cancer. The Director of my shelter went to the town shelter to look for something "big, black and Lab-ish" for me. She said she saw this TINY little guy in the back of his cage.

When he finally got to our shelter, she was like,"THAT is the TINY guy I saw???!" He had already grown in 2 weeks, even with kennel cough.

And he just kept growing. :)

Truman has his annual visit to the Vet this weekend.

Offical weight is 133 pounds. Vet wants him to lose a little. Maybe 125-127 like he was in the summer.
