Clue to size isn't paws
Can paws predict a puppy's size at maturity? Not necessarily. Big feet don't necessarily mean that a puppy will grow to be a large adult. A better clue is the pup's overall proportions. Puppies that are well proportioned at an early age typically grow into small or medium-size dogs. It's the gangly, awkward puppies that are most likely to be big dogs a few months down the road. If a young puppy looks as if it hasn't grown into his body, its head seems too large for its body, its tail looks longer than the rest of it and it's constantly falling over its paws, don't be too surprised if it weighs a whopping 90 pounds when it's eight months old.
Rubbing the right way
When your cat rubs up against you, it's not merely expressing affection. Cats want their possessions — and that includes you, your sofa, favorite toys and maybe the dog — to smell like them, so they deposit sebum from scent glands on their heads to mark whatever they're rubbing with their own special scent.
