Loaves of bread

When is Enough Enough?A friend of mine, for as long as I can remember, would say, "A loaf of bread costs what it costs, and you can eat only so much bread. Why would you buy more bread then you could ever use?". In my younger years I would chuckle to myself.

He is 11 weeks old and only weighs 4 lb 11 oz. which is small for both breeds, even for the runt. His fur is brown and white, fuzzy, but not very soft. He has green/hazel eyes.

I saw them mating after 2 days. I gave them some free flying time and they were desparate to find some nesting material.



What Breed Is My Dog?We got a puppy 2 weeks ago and I've been really wondering what breed she is? They found her in a box with her sisters and brothers.
