Most of you know me as Chopper, but my first name was Miracle. My human named me that because it was a miracle that I survived. I was born premature at 56 days gestation and I only weighed 1.5 ounces. Two of my siblings did not make it. Since I was born so early I was not capable of processing my mommy's milk when it started coming in and was choking. My human mommy had to feed me by tube until I was strong enough to nurse on my own. There were several close calls but I was a fighter!! I just wanted to share some pictures with you of my life so far, I hope that you enjoy them.

Also, I wanted to thank everyone for the comments about me. My mommy reads them to me all the time and it makes me feel so special. :)

Well on with the pictures. ~love Chopper
This is my fur mom Mini and my fur dad Mickey.

Six weeks, this is when my new mommy found out I was sold. She was so upset. She did not know that daddy had bought me for her as a suprise for her Birthday.

Seven weeks old, this is my original human mommy's thumb, I loved to bite it.

Eight weeks old and the day my new mommy found out I was hers. She cried she was so happy. But I could not come home yet. I only weighed 1 pound and the vet wanted to wait for my vaccinations another weeks.

This is the first time my new mommy saw me in person, she cried, again.

Oh my - what a wonderful story!!

Chopper, you were so tiny it would have only cost 58 to mail you!!

No wonder you have no fear of those big brothers - you are one tough doggy.

I know he was an itty bitty guy, about the size of your thumb probably. He just turned three months old yesterday and he is about 1-1/2 pounds. See he has grown alot :D He is so funny, every day when I go into the bathroom he stands on the scale, all on his own. I don't tell him he doesn't register, then again maybe he does it to be taller :D :D
