OK, to most of you, this may not seem like a big deal, but when I went to the vet for my booster shot this week, they weighed me and I've lost over three pounds. See, my vet thought I was getting a bit chunky at 67 pounds, so she put me on a diet. I was immediately switched off of puppy food and onto big dog food, and I'm not allowed to have too many treats. This has made me very unhappy! While I love my new dog food, the lack of treats has left me a bit cranky! Mom and Dad are being super strict about the decreased treats, and no amount of tricks or looking cute gets me anything extra. So, the three pound loss was GREAT news! Maybe some extra treats or a big 'ol rawhide will find their way into my mouth now. Let's hope they do.

'Till Next Time,

I only weigh in at 46 pounds...I dropped four when my Old English Sheep Dog moved in with me (long story, but he is only here temporarily). We play ALL the time now and he tends to eat my food if I'm not on the guard...

We have hard wood floors, so mom just wears socks and when I get a drink her socks get ALL wet! She used to hate it but now thinks it is cute when I put my wet beard on Dad's pant leg!

Kirby Bud!

You deserve a celebratory treat or two for sure! I remember switching from my puppy food to the big dog stuff. It's a right of passage thing.

Tell your mama that if she'd just get you more exercise, then the amount you eat doesn't really need to change.

Goober love,

My vet keeps telling my girl that I need to lose weight too. She keeps cutting back my food but I still don't lose any weight. I'll tell you my secret....
GRANDPARENTS! They are the weakest link!

Are rawhides fattening??? I certainly don't want to lose my girlish figure?? I love those Dingos...actually I like them even better when Scruffy has partially chewed his and I take it. MMMMM!
