As much as there are the superlatives of all kinds and categories, there are also, its exact opposite, the most minute and the smallest ones.
Last January, there was a pint-sized Chihuahua from Puerto Rico named Milly that was barely 3 inches tall at 3 months old. Then there was also news about a Puerto Rican small pup who can actually fit a tablespoon. After two weeks, its size was as big as an iPhone.
In in interesting news form ABC News, there’s another one considered to be the smallest, a cute and tiny terrier named Meysi from Poland. The minute pup weighed just about 1.58 ounces at birth, that was about three weeks ago. The weight and size may be record-breaking and set to compete with other small pups to be the “smallest” in Guiness.
The tiny terrier was hanging on to dear life and it was terrible the first six weeks after her birth. Pohl had to feed Meysi with a syringe just to keep her nourished. According to the same article, "The worst was the first six weeks," Pohl, who fed Mesyi with a syringe, told Gazeta Jarocinska, according to a translation. "[I got] zero sleep. I was feeding her day and night, every half hour. Sometimes I ran out of
strength, had to call out of work."
The current weight of Meysi is now 3.25 ounces but the veterinarians have informed Pohl and the dog is not expected to grow much more – a few ounces perhaps, but not a dramatic change to be really considered as big enough.
Funny this is that there are now three dogs, including Meysi now vying for the title of The World’s Smallest Dog” by the Guinness Book of World Records. It could be among Meysi, Beyonce and Milly. The required age limit is one-year old, so Meysi has to wait a couple more months.
Who could be “The World’s Smallest Dog?” Let’s wait and see.
