Dogs love bacon, of course! And it's not going to hurt your dog in small amounts.

However, bacon is high in fat and sodium.

Fatty, salty foods aren't good for your dog, and too much can lead to obesity or heart-related diseases.

Bacon is an incredibly rich and fatty food with a high salt content, which can prove to be too much for a dog's stomach to handle.

Eating a large amount can cause pancreatitis, which can be fatal.

A fairly accurate calculation you can do to predict an adult height for your puppy is to multiply her height at six months by 100 and divide that answer by 75.

For example, a puppy who is 8 inches at the shoulder when she is 6 months old should be between 10.5 and 11 inches at the shoulder when she is finished growing.

If your puppy's ears stand up when he gets excited, they probably will stand permanently by the time he is 6-months-old.

Another way to tell if your pup's ears are likely to stand is by observing where they are set on the head.

If you leave a puppy alone and don't respond to him at night at all, most puppies will eventually stop crying.

For some puppies this can happen within a day or so.

There are the puppies that sleep peacefully from the first night – but they usually belong to someone else.

Most puppies take three or four days to adjust.
