Exclamation NINETEEN POUNDS!

Just got back from Molly's Vet visit...she needed her rabies shot and the other she's-not-a-baby-anymore boosters!

She weighed in at 19 pounds!

Her Vet said that Molly's got great muscle tone, no fat around the ribs, and a good strong heart and lungs. He said, though he only has four Havanese between his two offices, that they're all on the larger size...no little ones!

While we were waiting, I was conversing with a Yorkie mommy who was there with HER Molly...she said she had expected her dog to be only 7 pounds, but she weighed in at 15! She was a beautiful Yorkie...just larger.

I'm wondering if there's something in the water...LOL.

Seriously, though, maybe it has to do with the way the food is processed, or something. Seems like lots of people who expected little ones are being surprised with more-to-love!

Anyway, we love our Molly...every single sweet pound of her! And she's qualifying as more-grown-up now! She doesn't have to go back until January, 2009! My little girl is growing up!

Way to go Molly!! What's great is the you do "Hav" more to love I find some havs have great muscle tone and weigh more. Not that they are unhealthy, but actually are very healthy. Perhaps, something in the water, but I think its the LOVE she is getting - lucky girl!!

Yay!!! Molly is in the "Hav more to love club!" Cash is 9.5 lbs and I think he may have just grown in height- he used to stand shorter than Jasper but now his head is even or maybe even a bit taller. Jasper is 17lbs. They could each lose a pound but are pretty healthy otherwise. We sought out Havs on the bigger side-- but we were thinking 14 or 16 lbs... I just really want Cash to stay under 20 in case we ever want to take him on a plane-- hate the thought of him in cargo.

This is not based on any scientific research on my part, but since people are getting taller and taller, could it be that nature's natural tendencies are biased towards the taller end of things in dogs, too? With dogs, you can obviously control the growth more and keep them within the standard, but I do believe that if you let a bunch of Hav's roam free on Darwin's Ranch, they would grow taller over time.

Back in Ohio, most of the havs were bigger. The first Hav fun day I went to they thought Dora was really small. I think it might vary in parts of the country depending on what lines might be established in certain areas.

Healthy is what is important anways! Thank goodness our Neezers don't have a forum to go and post their owner's weights. I would not like the diet that the vet would suggest Dora to put me on!

Tee hee. Here's Dora: "OK- alpha bitch... I can't feel your ribs... nothing but lean chicken and a few green beans for you... (that leaves the dark meat and the skin for me) and you should feel lucky because the vet wanted me to put you on science diet for humans weight control formula... And you will have to do a lot more walking--- which I will, begrudgingly help you with... wanna go for a walk? let's go again... let's go again...I'm not tired, let's walk...here's my leash ...come on"

Unhappy

It sounds like Molly is in great company!

The Vet said she'd probably be laggy for the rest of today from all the shots and the nose spray for boardatella, and the blood work, etc.

Well, this little sweetie is moving in s-l-o-w motion...I think the shot above her shoulder is sore.

She let me know that she wanted to be on the couch, so I had to lift her, and she's totally ZONKED, with her head on a pillow and her baby blanket between her paws. She wouldn't eat any food, but I'm thinkin' she just needs to sleep it off!

Poor baby. She looks SO pathetic...

An my have Parker, at 18 months old is 19 and 1/2 pounds of chunkey monkey! I am hoping that our puppy (at almost 4 months old) presently weighing in at 5 1/2 pounds grows up a bit or they will look like the odd couple!

Missy- OMG seriously, I could see her mixing in green beans with my food and chaining me to a bicycle so I can run along side it! Yeah, she doesn't care when I am tired! Tonight it has been raining and my husband had to work late, my right arm is going to fall off if I tug anymore!
