    "Thank God, Beth can't get her hands on me."
    Queen Elizabeth may have her Corgis, but the puppy stealing hearts and breaking records in Britain is a Yorkshire terrier chihuahua mix no bigger than an iPhone.
    The dog, appropriately named Mini, weighed just 1.3 oz at birth; Mini's believed to be Britain's smallest dog, according to the Daily Mail.
    Mini was born one week ago in a litter of seven puppies who all easily tripled her in size. The pint-size pooch has been nursed by hand by her owner, 29-year-old Emma Williams, every two hours since she was born, in addition to being fed by her mom.

    The result? Mini now weighs 1.9 oz, big enough to rejoin her siblings but still nowhere near the 4.5 oz weight typical of puppies her age and breed, the Daily Mail reports.
    "Mini was the second puppy to be born so at first I thought she was a normal size and the other was big and chunky," Williams, from Sandbanks, Dorset, England told the paper. "But as the others came out it became apparent she was so dinky, I couldn't believe it when I saw just how small she was, the others were at least three times her size."
    Neither Williams nor her veterinarian could document any other dog born in Britain being so small.
    Williams plans to put Mini, who is expected to weigh only one-and-a-half pounds at full size, and the rest of the litter up for sale once they are all healthy.

    If a person can't love a dog, I question their ability to love anything. I know that is wrong, but it's just how I feel. I can't help it. Trying to help stray animals has gotten me into trouble my whole life. I would probably be on that animal hoarder show if I didn't have someone to keep me in check. :facepalm:

    There was a story on the news awhile back that talked about somebody shooting dogs with a bb gun and he went jail... The guy I was dating said "what's the big deal they are just dogs.". Needless to say I never talked to him again.

    Did you see his little nails on his peas, so cute!

    Well....didn't want to start a thread, but for all of the dog lovers.....found an hysterical site yesterday....

    www.dog-shaming.com


    Hey....I'm inside 24/7 taking care of a loved one....so I'll take the laughs from where they come!

    For those who don't get far in, my favorite was a pup sitting with a sign around his neck that said "After my daily 2 mile walks, I come into the house and pee on mom's bed because I'm an ASSHOLE!"

    No! Puppy breath is my most favorite thing ever! (hence my username). Every year I foolishly pine for it and decide to take in a whelping mom just so I can get a dose. I'm a glutton for punishment. I've also been known to prowl pet stores and ask puppy owners if I can get a puppy kiss. They need to figure out how to bottle puppy breath!

    This little pup is adorable! But, as usual, I want to caution everyone before they go out to try and find Chorkie (yep, that's the designer breed name) puppies. Most of these designer breeds are not the healthiest of dogs. Many of these little ones have issues, like hypoglycemia, epilepsy, knee issues, and more. Just an FYI.
