does anyone know of giving half a shot and then the other half at another point?
Because the pups are so tiny?

I've heard of spacing out the shots (get one now and the other in 2-3 weeks). Never heard of giving portions of shots at different times.

Lacey has never had a problem with any of her shots but I do have her rabies given 2 weeks after her other shots. I have heard of giving half now and half later but I can't remember why it was done - maybe the dog had a heart condition?

We work with a vet who has a lot of experience with toy breeds and show dogs. He gives only 1/2 the shot (and throws the other 1/2 away). Shots are started no earlier than eight weeks, sometime ten. Only Parvo/Distemper is given for the first two injections.
I've lost a pup from shots, listening to the local vet I used until I had enough facts on him to see how ignorant he was with the toy breeds. I give my own shots because this other vet is too far to go for routine visits. I do have two other vets I can call on for problems, health checks/lab work, or c-sections, but shots are done here. If I have a question on care, I'm going to make the visit to the one who knows his stuff with the toys.
