Sparkle's all grown up

While I tried to hold a very excited Sparkle steady on the scales, store manager Nicole snapped a quick shot. The digital read-out says it all: 63.8 pounds.

At the neighborhood pet-supply store, Sparkle weighs in at 63.8 pounds. When she was a small pup, I expected she'd top out at around 65 pounds --  so she's reached her adult weight.  In the 10 months we've had her, she's gained about 57 pounds!

An update: Fellow puppy-raiser Jordan Ortiz, whom I mentioned last week, is training in Morristown with her new Seeing Eye dog, Hilton, and reports they are hitting it off great. They're taking a training trip to NYC.
