Today I Found

out that I have a "twisted" spinal column. I was at my vet for some shots and a routine semi-annual checkup. The vet techs took some xrays of my internal organs and a shot of my spinal column. How odd... my vertebrae twist one way, then the other way, then it straightens back out at the end. Maybe that's why I don't like my sides touched? The pawrents are going to put me on something called Cosequin, as a preventative.

I was also told I need to be put on something called a "diet", because I weighed in at 66 lbs--6 more pounds than Dixie. The Mom had the vet tech reweigh me, 'cuz she couldn't believe I weighed that much. The vet tech said I needed this "diet" thing because I should weigh around 50-55 lbs. I do NOT like the sound of this "diet" thing. No treats, and a reduced portion in my food bowl. Sounds like cruelty to animals, if you ask me. Call the A!
