Poms hit the Big Ten by Christine Till  @    CT-Graphics

The popularity of the small lovable Pomeranians (or Poms) is at an all-time high. It took more than twenty years for a toy breed to brake into the top ten list for registered dogs, and it was the Pom who has achieved that status.

With a weight of 3 to 7 pounds the adult toy Pomeranian of today is a far cry from its much larger European ancestors. Back in the Renaissance era Poms weighed a hefty 35 pounds and were used for herding and for pulling sleds.

Many famous Europeans owned Poms. The church leader Martin Luther had one as well as Michelangelo and Charles Darwin. Sir Isaac Newton’s Pom named Diamond once upset a candle on his master’s important papers, which contained more than 20 years of research. Mozart had a female Pom named Pimperl to whom he dedicated an aria, and Chopin composed the “Valse des Petits Chiens” for his girlfriend’s Pom pet. Charlotte of Pomerania – once Poland, today Germany – brought the first Poms to England, and Queen Victoria, a devoted dog fancier, particularly focused on the Pomeranian breed.

Full-blooded toy Pomeranian pups are fairly expensive, but these spirited, loving and loyal dogs which excel in the show ring, at companion events and as therapy dogs in nursing homes and hospitals are well worth the price.

    Wow, great information. I never knew they used to be so big. And a herding dog at that. Neat information. So this is one of two tea cup pups? Wonder how big a toy will get? I’d love to have one though, except they are very yappy dogs unless taught better, but by nature they are noisy…lol I already have two noise makers, I don’t think I want another one….
    Great information you give with your photos…thanks for that.
