Minnie Belle the Giant


Annabelle’s pup, Minnie Belle, has been growing at an alarming rate. Here she is compared to Dr. Pepper, who is about six months old.

Here she is compared to the black lamb who was born a few days after her.

Here she is compared to her mother.

What next? Will she grow bigger than the house? Bigger than the farm? BIGGER THAN WEST VIRGINIA?

Should I call the Guinness Book of World Records? Alert the media? HEAD FOR COVER?
