Dog on Thursday Flashback

It's hard to remember just how little Gus was when he came to live with me. This was his first day, all tuckered out. Now he weighs 9 1/2 lbs. Then? I don't remember. When I picked him up he would curl into a ball. It looked like I was holding a tribble. He's still such a baby, and so unlike the other dogs. If a car backfires, 2 dogs bark and one comes running to get between my feet. He still curls when I pick him up but now he tries to maneuver onto his back to get a tummy rub at the same time.

What an adorable fur ball baby!

Having a dog that weighs 125 lbs. means he never curls in my hand, but your baby is so darling.

In that pic he blends in so well it took me a minute to find him.

9 1/2 pounds, hefty! :-) What a cute fur ball.

Bucky was 2 1/2 pounds when we first got him, could fit in the middle of my palm.

How adorable. He doesn't look much bigger than his chew toy. :)
