how small and skinny Ava is - I think I'm going to lose it!!! I have had several people in the last 2 weeks tell me what a "small" shepherd she is. Does anyone else get ticked off when people say this .. I for one just believe that you don't tell someone that b/c that is basically telling me that I'm not taking good care of my "child". I think she looks great ... comments like that just really rub me the wrong way.
