View Full Version : Miracles do happen

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.
Here is me and my big sis with the blanket that my new mommy had given me to make my transition home with her easier.
Here are just a couple pics of me with my fur mommy and my sister.

I sure hope you enjoyed seeing me as a baby....

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

S:eek: tiny! Oh my goodness. He looks as if he was the size of a baby rat. So cute. How much does he weigh now?

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

My goodness your momma did look like she was going to pop :eek:

Chopper I'm so glad you were a survivor, I just couldn't bear not seeing pictures of you:D

Thanks for sharing your growing up pictures with us!
