Not going to be a small one...

Go back to December with me for a minute....this is Bruno when we brought him home. He couldn't go up or down the stairs by himself and curled up nicely in my lap with plenty of room to spare....


And on our way home from Christmas, sleeping on the console. We predicted it wouldn't be long until he couldn't fit any longer. But, when Norris looked at his paws, he kept saying that he was going to be a small dog...
We took him to the vet today, and he most definitely does not fit there! He now weighs 42 lbs (up 26 from two months ago...glad I don't grow that fast!!:). After the vet, we took him to the pet store to get a new name tag and collar, since he was growing out of his old one. His collar, not his nametag--we haven't even had one until now. Bad owners! He was tired, so he slept. Sprawled out on the truck floor.

This picture's angle makes him look even bigger than he seems to me, or maybe I can't believe he's really that big! We got him a new John Deere collar (Norris' choice, obviously!) and a nametag. Hopefully he never runs away and nobody has to actually use his nametag!
