honkin’ big

For Norma.

And since I had the tape measure in my hand, I started measuring things…

Sid is 27 inches at the shoulder and 27 inches long from his nape to tail.
Zuzu is 24 inches at the shoulder and 24 inches long.
Gracie is 23 inches at the shoulder and nearly 25 inches long.

(This was totally scientific, ahem, fueled likely by the glass of wine involved with dinner prep)

But it did make me wonder if Gracie’s long leanness contributes to her graceful athleticism. And of course her overall beauty.

No good recent pics,

Do you think she had a plan of cute lovableness to make us want to keep her? (here is her first day with us).

    Not to worry…. some of my best work is fueled by a glass (or two) of wine! ;-)

    Your dogs are beautiful, but I lust over the tomatoes. Basil and some fat free Italian dressing would be perfect.

    I LOVES me my puppy pics! In case you were wondering, all dogs on the planet belong to me, I just keep them at different people’s houses. The ones I keep at your house are exceptionally cute!
