Perrin's Future

So, looking at Perrin when we took him in it was hard to believe that he would ever be a big dog. After having him for almost 3 weeks I took him to the vet last Wednesday. It was such a fun visit! Scott had a class, so I lugged a tired Pixie with me and I was sick. Pixie screamed through the whole visit and checkout.
Anyway, we found out that Perrin was only about 10 weeks. A bit younger than I had hoped! He had also doubled his weight by this time (6 to 12 lbs) and we had found out a few days before who his parents are. I haven't seen them, but knowing that Perrin is a runt only give us a little bit of comfort! Let me just show you what I mean.

Perrin's mommy is a short haired pointer. Looking something like this and weighing between 45-60lbs. Not bad you say? I didn't think so either.
(I have even caught him pointing exactly like this at Nova.)

However...Perrin's daddy on the other hand is a Bull Mastiff. Looking something like this and weighing in the range of 110-130lbs. Woah! I have never had a dog this big before!

I guess we'll have to wait and see. I don't think Perrin has gained that much in size, but he eats like a horse already and has gained 2-3 more pounds since our vet visit.
