I'm Six Months Old

I'm officially 6 months old today!

 Mom has been curious about my stats stacked up against Mitch's when he was 6 months old.

I weigh 44.5 pounds and when Mitch was 6 months old, he weighed 45.5 pounds - only the difference of 1 pound!
This picture is Mitch when he was 6 months old.
I'm approx 22" to the withers and when Mitch was 6 months old he was the same height as I am.
My neck size is 14.5" and when Mitch was 6 months old, his neck size was 14 3/4" - that's pretty darn close!

One of the things that is very different is the length of our tails.  Mitch's stump is 5" - somebody got carried away when they docked his tail.
My tail is 9" long - the same length as angel Maggie's was.  
Mom thinks this is all kinda scary.  She's beginning to wonder if when I'm full grown I will weigh 70 pounds like Mitch does.
I guess time will tell. 

I'm anxiously waiting to see if mom and dad have big plans for me for my 6-month birthday.  Wish me luck!

So until next time...........

Love ya lots,
Molly

Miss Molly,
You are, indeed, a big, fine dale. It sounds to me like you will be as large as your wee little brother in just six more months. But always remember that he is the boss.

Slobbers,
Mango

We think your statistics are most impressive! Teka thinks it would be great to weigh even 25 lbs! She knows she could rule the world if that happened.

kisses for your 1/2 barkday.

I can't believe that you're already 6 months old, Molly! You were so tiny yesterday and now you are a beautiful young lady.

I'm sure you will become a fine lady when you grow up and no matter what, Mitch is always your big brother, your mentor.

Happy 6month-old, Miss Molly! Hope you have a fantastic birthday pawty with lots of treats and pressies.

Happy 1/2 birthday, BIG GIRL!

Sissy was supposed to be a petite basset. I mean... I always said that when Fred crossed the bridge, I wanted a petite little girl basset. Instead, we got our big ol' moo. She is taller and just plain bigger than the average basset, but since Fred was a whopper, she's still 10 lbs. lighter than he was!

Six months! Time goes too fast. One moment she's a little black sausage then suddenly she's a leggy lady and the tan colour is creeping up on the black.
Mojo has just swooned at that pic of Mitch. Soooo handsome.

Does it matter if you're big? Are you getting into modelling? Already?

Hahahha, time tells but I have a feeling that you'll be different from your bro. Girls and boys ARE different, or so I hope. :P
