The horrible diet food is OVER!

Pupsies, I am so excited! Mummy has formally declared that the "obesity (Hmmmmmmph!) formula that I was on is formally banned! Ok, I'm still on a diet but I will be getting more normal stuff from now on. Let me explain.

I was doing ok with that nasty food. But in the last few days I was all itchy and irritated. And when Mummy was away in England during the week, my Nana was telling her on the phone that I was all scratchy.Scratch scratch scratch. That was me all week.

So we went to the Vet yesterday. And I had lost NO weight despite eating that yucky food for a month. But last night I was itching and scratching and crying because I was so itchy - Mummy was looking on the internet for stuff to ease my itching. So at 4.30 this morning (I kid you not) she was rubbing baking soda mixed with water into my skin cos neither of us could sleep. Then we settled down and had a good sleepie.

This morning Mummy checked out some antihistamines that are safe for dogs, and gave me half a tablet, She had been looking up some stuff on the internet about dog nutrition and she found out that dogs should have 40% meat, 30% veggies and 30% starch. So she made my own meatloaf with beef, oats, carrots, broccoli and cottage cheese and she made it in the oven. It was yummy!

So now Mummy is going to do a turkey version as well and put my portions in the freezer, then defrost them when she needs them. Proper food at last!

Mummy says that yes, she knows I need to lose a little bit of weight BUT we will do it using normal food and because the weather's better I'll be getting more exercise anyway. So sticking my tail up at my naughty vet making me eat that horrible stuff! BOL!

So happy that diet is over! Do you still want my care package to be sent to you?

Yes please Buddy! I will need some extra supplies to help with my recouperation! I'm pretty sure I have suffered muscle wastage from my starvation. It might even have caused permanent damage to my eyesight. If it wasn't for my two Easter eggies and extra treats on my birthday I'm pretty sure I'd just be lying listlessly in my bed, unable to type this. So thank you all.

Bless you all. You have really touched my heart with your concern and generosity (sniff).......keep the food coming! It may take a while for my poor, delicate body to get over this terrible trauma!
