OK... I kinda feel like a doofus..... After browsing my pictures and looking at the one from last month.

She's grown a ton!!!!

I wonder if she's just going through another growth spurt and I'm being uber paranoid?!?!

She's much bigger now than she is in that first photo.....



I'm going to weigh her.


OMGOSH... I'M a COMPLETE worry wort D. O. R. K!!! I just had my daughter hold her and weighed the both of them together and then subtracted my daughter's weight.....

Boots weighs 35#'s!!!! Apparently she's growing and I didn't realize it until I looked at the pictures.... I'm so embarrassed.

**Head desk**

I'm still going to look into the feeds that were mentioned... Thanks for tolerating my paranoia!!!

Glad she is just growing and not skinny *light bulb*... hey that's what my problem is...I've just had a slow spell in my growth so I look fat
Do you ever give her eggs? I fry some up for my dogs once a week or whenever I get a big surplus.

lol.. You're a genius Vida!!! I'm about 15 years over due for my growth spurt too!!! That's why I'm fat!!! ROTFL!!!

Yes, the doggies get eggs when ever I have extras. My hens are finally starting to produce again so the dogs will be "in eggs" in the next week or so. I've finally got my 2doz in the fridge so I can start feeding extras!!!

Thanks, I'm rather partial to my semi cross-eyed baby!! I'd love to see some of Mo..

Aww Amy she is adorable! I could see how she could steal your heart so quickly! I'm glad to hear it's just a growth spurt and not losing weight. I would still look into the other food though just in case she starts losing weight in the summer. You never know when you will need it, so if you have a good handle on whats what you will be good to go if needed!


PS
I'm also late for my growth spurt.. darn it.

Yeah, Mo is a little cross-eyed too, but he got bit in the head when he was 5.5 wks old so he has a reason or at least that's what I tell people when they comment on his cross-eyedness.

I'm really happy its just a growth spurt and nothing worrisome. With a new food and eggs you shouldn't have to worry this summer.
