Ok I was trying to post some pictures here but can't figure it out
I can get them in my gallery so you will all have to look in my
gallery to see how small Cosmo is at a 11 weeks. He weighs a whole
1 lb. 1oz.

He is a real doll. I see that it looks like the hair was shaved down on one of his front legs. May I ask if it was, and if that was where they drew the blood for liver shunt testing? We are going to be doing Dash next week, getting him ready to come to Violet, and I don't want him shaved down at all. I think my vet will work with me though. Just curious.

Thankyou all I think he is adorable too but I might be just a little bias LOL!


The reason his leg was shaved down is because he had an IV so they probably
won't do it just for blood work. I just tease him and tell him he has a little
poodle leg. It just gives him more character
It is hilarious watching him
run and chase me, but very very hard because he is so small and always
underfoot.

Nichole: I haven't been able to find a collar to fit him yet but the one I got that was 5-10"
is starting to fit him better so I would say another week or two and it should
fit him. For now he is always with me, when we go outside to potty I am right by him, we live in a country setting with a HUGE yard so we go out in the back and
he is too small to get away from me yet so the leash isn't urgent yet.

Little Peanut: How big is peanut now? I would like Cosmo to get to be
atleast 3 lbs. hee hee right now if feels like he will never grow. Either way
I do and will always love him. He's my little Cosmo's Celestial Spice and he
definitely has plenty of spice. He stole my heart the second I seen him, wich was
at 4 weeks and then when I seen him again at 9 weeks I was sold.

Do you have a PetsMart near you? The one near me carries a line of collars and harnesses called Lil Pal or something like that. They are meant for the really small under 4lb dogs. Nikki is 3.5lbs now. She grew out of the harness at around 3lbs. Her collar still fits but can't be made much bigger.

I've heard of some people using ferret harnesses on tiny puppies.

Why did poor little Cosmo have to have an IV? He's so young.
