Hello! I've been very busy doing lots and lots of excercise! Yes, even in the crazy summer heat.
in April we went for our annual health check, booster shots and flea prevention refill. As part of the process we get weighed, and usually the vet gives an assessment on whether we need to lose some weight.
This time my humans didn't need to wait for the vet; the moment they saw my weight (57 pounds) they said "PIG!". Maybe they thought I didn't understand! but I did. It's not my fault! I do a lot of exercise so if I'm overweight it's because I'm being overfed. Remember we doggies just eat what's available.
Anyway, mom & dad decided to put me on a diet. I started eating less and kept exercising. However they were sneaky about it so I didn't really feel like they were starving me to death.
A few weeks later we went back to the vet because Tallulah had hurt her paw (it was all infected and swollen), and I got weighed again. I'd lost 4 pounds already! So the diet is working! And it even helped with some digestive problems I'd been having.
Being lighter is great, I can run faster and jump higher, which really helps when I'm playing fetch. Plus it's better for my joints and tummy. So it's a win for everyone!
See ya'll soon!

Great to hear from you, pal.
I bet you're looking great after dropping a few pounds. We hope that Tallulah's paw has healed. Send her our love.
Your pal, Riley
