Ahhhhh..... I just love Rocky
Actually Rocky could easily fit in his hand, its just how they compare to the hand and fingers is what really tells size and height. Just have him sit like T said. The bigger ones have to sit on their backbone, all curled. I can even get Willow to sit in my hand even though she is 11 lbs. but 3 lbs or 11 lbs I can tell how big they are just by looking at how the dogs is sitting, it's build and body size etc. When you have a true3- 3.5 lb chi. you really know just how big that size is. I think Rocky IS a small dog. Heck I think Willow is small, she is very cobby. Its just a 3 lb'er is sooo much teenier. I mean I can actually cover my whole hand over Ivy and Ferns tiny head and you wouldn't see it, it's like the size of a apricot. I couldn't with Willow lol!! And my hands are not big at all.
