It is so hard for me to think of something so small around though. They're long and thin like slinkies, and to think of a dog with ribs that teeny is just- wow! Thatcher is bigger in overall mass (or close to the same size..though he weighs less) than Douglas, who is 5 pounds. Douglas wears XS clothes. The ferts are a bit baggy in XXS. It is just...those clothes are so little, it is hard to think of a dog who is really that small. I've had rats who weighed as much as some of the chi's here! I had a huge male who weighed in at two pounds.
I can't even think of a dog the size of my pet rat! How could it even be real? I need to see a chi puppy some day...I might die at how small they are.
