Mom took me to the vet yesterday. She said I needed to have my Bordetella vaccine brought up today. Ok, mom, whatever you say. I just love going to the vet and I got hugs and kisses from everywhere. Even one of the technicians from the back came running out to give me a hug and a kiss.
While there I got weighed. I am 35.5 kilos or 78 pounds. Mom was told this was too much for me to weigh. They said, we probably can't feel his spine with this much weight on him! Haha, but they could feel my spine so there. Then they said we should be able to easily feel his ribs and we might not be able to. Haha, but again, they could feel my ribs. Mom said maybe it was just my winter coat that is adding on the pounds. They didn't buy that theory. But they stopped saying I was overweight when they could feel my spine and ribs and everyone mentioned how muscular I am. Of course mom pipes up and says that muscle weighs more than fat. Yup, mom is on my side!
Mom got asked how much she feeds me and she told them 2 cups per day and they agreed that was good. Then mom asks if poop has any calories! BOL! Yes, pups, it is a veritable smorgasbord outside my door everyday and I like to sample everything. Deer, rabbit, goose poop are all tasty. Oh and lately the neighbor has brought his cows home from the summer pasture. Pups, cow poop is awesome! Can't forget that the other neighbor has moved his horses into the back 40 and I now have access to horse poop. So just how many calories do you think my treats might have?
My river is freezing over and yesterday the ferry ceased to run for the year. Now we must wait for the river to be frozen over sufficiently before we can drive across the river on the ice road.
Well, I think I will ask mom to take me outside so I can scrounge up some more delectable specimens. Later pups!
Wow! All I get to snack on is Schnauzer poop, little bits of chicken poo and the occasional kitty cat poo. And leftover mouse parts when I can find them.
Better be careful though Buddy. Your mom will cut back on your kibble to make up for all that delicious poo you chow down on.

Sometimes the vet peeps say those things about me too...sheesh! I am a lean mean running machine...and I know you are too...
BOL on all those yummy snacks! Cow patties, huh, I haven't had opportunity. Those horse turdies are yummy, though...um don't tell growlmy...
Hey, have you tried goat candies? Not quite as good as deer doo-doo...but still good to snack on...I do miss my goat neighbor!
We agree with the comments! Muscle does weigh more than fat!
You have an ice road? That sounds like a whole bunch of fun! Make sure you let us all know when you can cross it in your car!
OMD, dat are a lotta poop variety!
Oh Buddy, you are not fat. You just have a thick coat lie me. Mom felt for my ribs and it tickled. Mom grosses out on my poop diet though. Bird , squirrel.. Anyways your pawsome! Don't let them tell you any different.
Haven't tried any of those kinda poops. I like my own enough - Mom holds me at a distance now though when she picks it up - she says its disgusting. I told her if she feeds me more, I won't do it. BOL
