I never really saw that as too much of a problem since I never thought he would get too big to be carried. After all, his mom Sparkles was not even forty pounds when she was adopted. I guestimated that Ray might top out in the mid fifties, which I could still carry if needed.

How big might he get? It should be fairly easy to track. Every month on the first he gets his heartworm preventative and I like to take him in to the vet with me so he can get some socialization and also heft his little pink piggy but onto the scale. Last month and this week I didn't have a chance to take him in with me so we used the unscientific method of me holding him while on the scale and subtracting my weight. Ray seems to grow at about ten pounds per month and as of yesterday he was sixty-two pounds of lap dog.
Each month I assume we've hit the ceiling and each month I've been wrong. I wonder how big he'll get to be.
