My little Gracie is growing up so fast. There are three steps leading up to my home. Only a week and a half ago, Gracie could only jump up the first two (when she wanted to) and she would whine because she couldn’t get to the third. Now, she hurdles past all three pretty quickly. If she wants to jump, she does without any whining or problems!
Look at how tall she is now. Only two weeks ago, when I first got her, her head barely fit over the step.
I think Gracie is growing too fast… Literally. I wanted her to be a smaller sized shih tzu, which is what the breeder had told me she would be. Only about 5 lbs . . . Oh no, Gracie is going to be on the larger size. She will be 8 weeks this Saturday, and I think my baby is already over 2 pounds. She will possibly be 3 pounds on Saturday. I guess she will be average shih tzu size when she’s all grown up — around 10 pounds or so.
Sadness. But I still love her, and I wouldn’t give her up for anything in the world.
I always toyed with the idea of those “teacup” dogs, because I want a purse dog, but I read that they have many health issues, their bones are easily broken, etc. With how hyper and active Gracie is, I’m sure that if she was a teacup, she would have many broken bones by now. That puppy is always falling over when she runs… Chasing after the cat and the black lab.
She’s simply cute! And I love her, regardless of how big she gets.
