The breeders have come up with another one

I was at the groomer's place and saw something very small in a cage. Pocket Poodle. I made her bring it over and it was too cute. Poor thing was cold though. I could roll over on one and kill it.

Carla, you know you would buy a little doggy baby bed if you bought one of those little guys. They max out in size around seven pounds so it would be like having a baby.

I love itty bitty furballs. For dogs, though, mine need to have a certain oomph to stand up to the other big guys [Istvan playing]. BeeBee is 15lbs but 10 feet tall and bulletproof ;]

Many breeders have been jumping on the "smaller is better" bandwagon. One, who is a client at the practice I work in, has Chihuahuas that at 8 weeks of age weight 12 ozs! There is even a breeder who is now offering Miniature Dalmatians! While I understand the market for small dogs [especially here in the land of the condo - Florida] I can't help but worry about these tiny fragile pups. Most are prone to hypoglosimia, broken bones, dental disease and, of course, cool temps.
I guess the perception of these micro-breeds is that they are "forever puppies" due to their size. But I feel one should do their research before getting one and be sure of their commitment to these "special needs" dogs. Just my thoughts on the subject!

nova, Mom to two GOK medium sized dogs!
