We're alive, I promise!

I'm mad.

For those following the growth of Mr. A-Patch-y Earlobe, I can now show you photographic evidence that he is bigger than me:

Don't ask me to smile for the picture...you know I'm upset!

At 7 months old he now weighs in at 27 pounds, and growing. Which means that right at this second, we are also weigh the same. So, all of the snide comments (I'm looking at you Grandma!) that I, Sparky the Puggle, am "so heavy" can stop ASAP! I am now the small one, OK? You may have to give me double the treats so I can catch up to my supposed little brother.

Oh dear, Patches really is getting big, isn't he? 27 lbs, that's heavier than me!

I don't blame you for being upset. It's hard to be a small 'big brother'.

Ooooo, I'd be mad too. Lola was supposed to be 65 lbs & I was really mad that she was gonna be bigger than me. But I stunted her growth and she's only 40lbs!! Ha!

I am also bigger than my older sister, by quit a bit more than Patches is than you. You definately should get more treats. I hear icecream has calcium and calcium is good for big strong healthy bones. You should definately get a cup of icecream with every meal!!
Thanks for the advice on living up to my namesake. It so worked last night!! Thanks!!

Patches might be bigger but you were there first and that means a whole lot more! Don't let him push you around, Sparky!

Love ya lots,
Maggie

Sparky, don't be sad! The last time I checked, I was 19.5 lbs and my mama threatened to put me on a diet because I'm the biggest out of my pack. That would mean no more dingos, treats, carrots, and all the other stuff I like to eat. You can sit back and enjoy all the yummy treats when Patches have to go on a diet. Besides...being the first pup, and the older brother only means being the first in all orders!

Hey! I am 7 months old, too! When were you born, Patches?

And I think you have a very good solution to the problem, Sparky. You need LOTS and LOTS more treats!

Oh yeah, he is much much bigger than you & he's still growing! Oh Sparky, not to worry. People will still know that you're the older brudder becoz you behave very mature & Patches doesn't coz he's still a playful pup, right?

Love licks,
