    Blade gets hiccups a lot and when i mentioned this to my parents they said that was a sign of a healthy thriving pup?! IS IT?? Or is it an old wives tale??

    Your paranoid???

    I must be the most obsessive and paranoid person ever over Buddy!

    Im worried about everything, from what he does, to what he eats, to his sleeping. I check to see if he is breathing all the time! Its so irrational!!

    I think i worry as i love him so much and dont want anything to happen to him, plus he is still only a baby!

    God help me when i have kids :eek:

    So dont worry, your not on your own x

    Thank god I'm not the only one! I get funny looks when I check my dogs are breathing lol.

    No idea if it's a wives tale but both Novak and Bailey had hiccups a lot when they were puppies.

    No need to worry, Luna was and still is a hiccuper (she's 9 months now). I like to think when she hiccups she's growing :D

    I didnt mean you was irrational (in case you thought i did). :)

    I worry about the slightest thing with Buddy even though he is perfectly fine.

    He weighs 4.5kg (10lbs) and is 7 weeks.

    Logan weighed 7.2kg (15lbs) at 8 weeks so i don't think he is going to be as big as him?! (Logan weighed 26lbs at 11 weeks- i don't have his 10 week weight written down)

    Wow! Luna was a big girl! Well she still is, what is her weight now?

    Yes he was and that was with him being very poorly as he had campylobactor as a pupster and we nearly lost him!! (that is why i am paranoid with the new arrival i think!! )

    Logan weighs 38 kg now and he is still very skinny and lanky!! Hasn't grown into his feet still yet! LOL :thumbup:
