He’s a mere 10 pounds and that is being generous. At times, he barely made a depression in the wet sand just a few faint nail prints scratching the wave smoothed surface. I hadn’t seen him for more than a year yet when I entered their empty home, he came running up to me and sat on my lap cat style with energetic tail wagging. He loves the beach. Loves chasing the sandpipers scattering them into the air. With other dogs, he is fierce barking like he’s 100 pounds and ready to chew their ankles to the bone.
