Am I the runt?

Mama, am I the runt of my litter? I remember Daddy wanted a GREAT BIG BOY German Shepherd, but temperament trumped size by far. Mama picked the BEST boy pup – it was me! At 13 weeks I’m 32.4 pounds, but my biggest brother is over 40 pounds!! I’m not sure how much anyone else weighs, but I wonder, am I the runt? Mama says he's a monster! The biggest puppy ever!

Mama says I might be the runt, but only by a little, and anyway, runts are her favorite dogs! My doggie daddy, Ranger, is very big, 90 pounds, but his daddy, Tipper, my grandpa was petite at just over 70 pounds. Tipper may have been petite, but Mama says he was one of the best dogs to ever live. He was sweet, super intelligent, protective, and fair.

Mama says 70 pounds is still pretty big. She said the bigger they are, the harder they fall, so I won’t have to fall as hard! (I'm going to forget I said this if I get big...) Besides, she says size doesn’t matter when you have the best boy doggie in the whole world!

Mama knows for sure I am leading my litter-mates in the competition of ears going up! Mama said she hears that’s because I’m in a good home and feel very secure. I’m proud of my triangle head!!

Awww, Mama, you know how to make a boy feel better. But I think extra food will do too….

I was considered the runt of my litter. I don't see anything wrong with being the runt. The pawrents love me just the way I am! I'm sure the same applies to you.

Abby, YOU were the runt? Wow. Mama said runts were the best, but I thought she was just trying to make me feel better! BOL! Sounds like it's true though! I feel much better. I felt so alone and little for a moment!! Life and size is not a competition! Why waste time worrying when we can be happy and play!!!

Yes, Frank, I was considered the runt. When I was adopted at 8 weeks, I was 16 pounds. My four brothers were all between 20 and 22 pounds and my sister was 19 pounds. The vet told mom I would probably only be about 50 pounds when I was full grown. Well, I weigh 75 pounds and I am bigger than some of my brothers! Us runts are the best!!
