The Runt

This little girl was only just over half the size of the other puppies when she was born. It has been my experience that sometimes the runt is the best dog.




Here she is with Squeaky, all the puppies favorite squeaky toy, and she is growling at her brother because she want's it all to herself.




He still tried but if looks could kill. . . 




She did finally run him off and




ended up being the winner.

I think she'll be a really good dog for her person, Leonard, who is coming to pick her up some time this week (hard to believe they are weaned and ready to go already) Leonard is a really nice young fellow that might not know how to rope, yet, but I hear he has taken to carrying one on his saddle, just in case.

She's as cute as a bug's ear! In Tess's litter, all the female pups were considerably smaller than the males. At 6 weeks the boys weighed around 8 pounds and the girls around 6 pounds.

I adore her! I'm partial to runts. They do seem to turn out to be great dogs.

Yep, I agree on the runt can become the best one of the bunch! I'll never say that they won't, we've had a few ourselves and they made dang good dogs...

Awe, too cute. My childhood dog was a runt that I chose, sweet Tania - who could also be tough as nails.
