Babies come in all shapes and sizes.
A baby elephant tips the scales at
around 200 pounds or 90 kilograms
and is around 3 feet tall/0.91 metres.
A newborn giraffe weighs
around 220 pounds or 99 kilograms and
stands about 6 feet tall/1.82 metres.
the average weight of a human baby is
around 7.5 pounds/3.5 kilograms and is
about 50 centimetres/18 inches long
It took nearly twenty years for
these babies to reach an
elephant’s birth weight

…in all images, which pushed Taji
past playfulness last October.
Taji became cranky and told Candi where to go.
Strangely Candi, at half Taji’s strength and weight
decided to stand up to Taji,
as all kelpies have done with
all Labradors we have owned.
Although they both drew some blood,
Candi came off second best.
Taji sat on her, literally, at one stage
and Candi limped for several weeks after.
…celebrating a 21st birthday, or…
…a 75th birthday,
’tis always a good excuse for a party
especially with a new wig to wear.
About ten years ago Father-in-Law had
been diagnosed with several types of cancer
during the year with the imagined effect
on his already thinning hair.
Our boys decided a wig was just what
the doctor ordered.
He is still going strong.
