TINY "TEA CUP POODLE" YAWNS AS SHE IS SCRATCHED AT TOKYO PET SHOP.
A tiny three week-old "tea cup poodle" under 150 grams (0.3 pounds) in weight yawns as she is scratched by pet shop manager Ayako Ohta in Tokyo July 24, 2003. The shop/breeder crossed small-sized toy poodles to breed the little dog for the booming Japanese pet market, for sale from 650,000 yen ($5,473). The dogs will become about 1.5 kilograms (3.3 pounds) in weight when fully-grown. REUTERS/Eriko Sugita PP03080024
