Looks like you have a full family. How nice to have a mixture of breeds and ages. Hope everyone lives happily for many years to come.

 

A small black and white dog asleep.

What Breed Is Kiwi?
She is adorable but 8 weeks old is probably too young to tell very much about her breeding and way too young to know what her size will be when she is a year old. No ideas about her parents? Im sure you are taking her to your vet for her shots/vaccinations...
