1618709-1588367-thumbnail.jpgwe’ve had speck for exactly 6 weeks this weekend and two things stand out in this puppy’s development:

1.  she has not grown up but she’s grown out. take a look at the picture on the right…you might think the photo has been manipulated or that i was standing over speck when taking the photo. you would be incorrect sir – i was standing directly in front of her and she is at actual size. she is a mighty 11’’ tall and i’m pretty sure that’s the same height she was the day we picked her up 6 weeks ago

you might remember the episode of growing pains where mike is at a school dance and sees a beautiful girl across the gym only to be shocked by her horrendous voice when she speaks (or you might actually use your memory for more advantageous information). speck is that girl across the gym. she’s real cute and a pleasure to look at but her voice is absolutely atrocious. a few weeks ago i was having headaches and my jaw was bothering me. i thought stress was causing me to start grinding my teeth at night…then i realized that when speck barked (shrieked is actually a better word for it) i was tensing up and that was causing all the pain. dave told me i just needed to relax, be with it and let it wash over me. easier said than done, my friend.  i’ve since learned that i need to stay out of small, tiled rooms when she starts with her shrieking. i really think if she knew what her bark sounded like she would never make another sound again.

so to wrap up, we’ve got a midget ear terrorist who’s pretty cute! here’s a little video of her hijinks in the morning.
