The Thoughts Of A Red Cattle Dog With Whipped Cream on Top

Not Quite There Yet, But Getting Closer To The Mark!

Mom's not an avid diary writer for us,
but we thought my pals might like a
little update about my weight...or
weight loss would be a better word.

I got weighed back in June and I had
lost another 3 lbs to the six I had
previously lost. Well, mom got me
weighed Friday and I lost 4 lbs! My
mom says, 'Yayyyyyy!!' Me, I'm pretty
indifferent about it all. All I know
is mom's mighty proud of me. How do I
know? She has to hold herself back
from running around dancing every time
I get weighed. Instead, she lets out a
squeal and just about hugs me to death.
Sheesh! Contain yourself, woman! Don't
embarrass this dignified Red Cattle Dog!

So, in total, I've lost 14 pounds.
Since April.
The way mom acts, I'm thinking this is
awesomely good.
(Can't forget to give a big shout out to
the thyroid meds.) where's them carrot
treats, woman! This here stomach's
lettin' out some growls!

Oh yeah...I also got a bath yesterday.
I'm much more reddish now that I'm clean...
or might that be much more orangeish!! BOL!

I sure hope you get to eat more than carrots though. Does your Mom think you are a rabbit?

Redford, that's great. Maybe it's all those carrots you like.

We get lots of carrots at least once
a day. Since I cannot have regular
doggie biscuits...yet...I get to have
as many carrots as I want. Maybe when
I reach my 'ideal' weight, I'll turn
into a bunneh!

It's the diet, the thyroid meds, and
I'm sure, the carrots!

You are doing very well, my partner in dieting! 14Lbs, that's awsome! As for me, I'm still struggling. My harness seems to be as tight as it can be. BOL!

Thank you!
I wish you were not struggling to
loose weight, diet buddy. I think
I've had help because of the thyroid
Of course, my mom has not wavered
in the amount of food I get. Still
one cup kibble with a large amount
of canned veggies...and carrot
treats! Once in a great while she'll
give me a piece of whatever she's
eating...and I don't see any whipped
cream for me in the near future!

Thank you, Missy. It's always good
to hear someone rooting for you!
