Minnie's (almost) 4 month stats

My little baby Minnie had her final puppy check-up and set of vaccinations today. She is nearly 4 months old! My how time flies. She still only weighs 2.08lbs (up from 1.15lb 3wks earlier). Although I am happy that she finally surpassed the 2 lb mark, her lack of weight is such a source of stress for me. The vets think that she is just a small girl and that's just how she is made but I am supposed to watch her closely for signs of liver shunts. Not growing at a normal rate is a symptom of this, but she hasn't shown any other signs-hopefully she never will! Minnie is SO spunky and acts like she feels great so I have to keep reminding myself of that!

On a lighter note we attended her 2nd puppy obedience class today and she is doing very well. She is quite observative and a quick learner. So far she can sit and is walking on a leash just great! It is common for people to chuckle when they see her walking by on a leash because when I walk Minnie it looks very similar to walking a furry guinea pig in a harness!

PS Molly is still a perfect girl. She is so sweet and patient with the puppy 99% of the time.

Here is a video of them playing:
