I must be an idiot following Karenís post with all her talented doggies, but here goes. I have two boys, Oliver, a black and white parti who is 5 years old. He measures 11.5 inches and weighs in at a whopping 18 lbs. He is our old soul with very expressive eyes and a tail that never stops. He likes to talk and we call him Tim the Toolman because of his grunts. He is a sweet gentle boy and is very polite. He did agility for a while, but never really enjoyed it. His health so far has been very good with no issues. Quincy is the baby and turned 1 in January. He is a tricolour and measures 11 inches and weighs 15 lbs. He is our firecracker/energizer bunny and can wear you out. He loves life and every day is just another day to have a good time. He hasnít met anyone or anything he doesnít like. He loves to watch TV and recognizes all the animal commercials just by hearing the music. No matter where he is in the house if music starts for a commercial with animals he comes roaring into the TV room and dances on his hind legs in front of the TV. He started out with a lot of tummy issues and diarrhea issues, but probiotics, diet and meds fixed him up and he has had no more issues with that. He also had a growth plate that closed early on one of his front legs. We thought we might have to put him through surgery, but it happened late in his growth so we decided to try supplements for joint care that helps build cartilage, strengthen muscle and promote bone health. It has been amazing stuff and he is doing great. He will take it forever. No agility for him, just not worth risking it. Both boys are complete opposites and they love each other dearly. Great playmates and they have been a joy for us.
