no you are right, this little puppy is tiny! i took them all to the vet yesterday and was told she is perfectly healthy but to pay extra attention to how much milk she is getting from Minnie. I weighed them tonight and the other 3 pups are DOUBLE her weight!! I am trying to give her extra puppy milk using a puppy bottle from the vets. Fingers crossed she will start to gain weight quickly.

I'm sure she'll gain, especially with you supplementing her :)
Carl's mom recently had a litter and there was a pup that was smaller than the others, so my neighbor had to make sure to give it extra time with mom. Now he's a chubby little thing :lol:

as long as that lil girl is strong and kicking shell do fine...
occasionally the smallest in the litter will outgrow the bigger puppies...
that happend with vixieis pups, gizmo was the smallest through the first few weeks, however hes now the biggest at around the 5lb mark (hes built like a tank like vixie lol)
so i wouldnt worry too much about her.
