Well. That paragraph went in a direction that I wasn't planning. My original point was that I'm always curious as to the acutal size of the dogs I'm seeing online. How is that for the stream of consiousness to take a wild turn! My first experience with a Pit Bull type dog in person was my sister's dog who was gigantic. Tai Chi weighed nearly 100 pounds and he was tall, so for the longest time, I thought that is what Pit Bull looked like.
I'm wondering though, about Ray of course. I wonder how long he will continue in his physical growth. Because he has excellent manners out in public, people forget or just don't realize that he is still a puppy. I take him with me each month to the Veterinarian's office to get his heartworm "cookie" so that I can weigh him and give him more exposure to people and that office in general. Not surprisingly he keeps growing at exponential rates and every time they read a new weight from the machine I have to remind them he is a baby. "He weighs 73.5 pounds today but a month ago he was 66 pounds?" Yes, but don't forget he is not quite ten months old. Oh. Yeah.
