Finally a weigh-in…

She wasn’t too impressed at the beginning of the journey…

Since it’s been so difficult to walk Sophie lately, I’ve had to have someone stand in for me…someone who is actually strong enough to control her. With her big bark she can be pretty intimidating, though all she really wants is some attention.

For those of you who have big dogs, you probably know the curiousity of just how much that poop machine weighs. At least I was. My little bathroom scale worked for a bit when she was a wee thing of about 50 lbs. Now, though, it’s not so simple. Nope. Instead, I had to head to the airport to weigh her.

Grand total? 88.6 lbs at 7 months. Is that normal? I though it was a bit small, but perhaps it falls into the target weight. Female full-grown saints fall into the 120-140 lb range.

…wow, though…I’m pretty sure most of that weight is just muscle. I just took her out for a quick trip, and my hands are now raw with leash burns. Any type of distraction (ex. the neighbor’s dog tagging along behind) gets her ready to charge this way and that. It’s enough to make you want to scream! I feel like I’m on some sort of home video entitled: Small Girl, Big Dog. Not too cool…
