Well, I think it was like 3 days ago, mom took
me to get weighed again. I've lost 3 pounds.
Not a total Forrest, but a half one.
Not bad since it hasn't quite been a month like
So, I guess things are going well in the diet
department...but I'm still starving!!

Mom's brother sent her this today.
She thought it was funny, so she'd
like to share it here.
Children Are Quick
TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find North America .
MARIA: Here it is.
TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who discovered America ?
TEACHER: John, why are you doing your math multiplication
on the floor?
JOHN: You told me to do it without using the tables.
TEACHER: Glenn, how do you spell 'crocodile?'
TEACHER: No, that's wrong
GLENN: Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me how I spell
TEACHER: Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?
DONALD: H I J K L M N O.

MILLIE: All right...'I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.'
TEACHER: George Washington not only chopped down his

TEACHER: Now, Simon , tell me frankly, do you say prayers
SIMON: No sir, I don't have to, my Mom is a good cook.

DUDES! PUPS! PEEPS! WHOMEVER! WHATEVER!
Wait wait wait!
I got sidetracked by Shakira!
Sorry about that.
I LOST SOME WEIGHT!!!
I did! I did!!!
I lost 6 pounds!
In one month, I lost 6 pounds!!!
Mom took me to the closest vet to where we
live (my regular vet is 20 miles away) on the
way to the dog park, Wednesday, to get me
weighed. When she saw the number, she was so
happy she almost busted a move right there!
She was so proud of me she gave me hugs and
Mom says what I lost amounts to a Forrest
'cause he weighs six pounds.
Hmmm...when you look at it that way, it doesn't
seem like much 'cause he's such a puny thang!
Hopefully, in another month I'll lose another
Forrest. That would be so AWESOMELY AWESOME!!
On a more serious note, I want to have a
moment of silence for a dear pal and
fellow Cattle Dog, Levi...................
We're deeply saddened that he has gone
to the Bridge.
Run free and well now, dear friend.
You'll be right here in our hearts.

Another year another birthday.
Yep. I will be the big one oh tomorrow.
Mom can't believe I'm gonna be ten years old already.
If you know my mom, she gets bummed out with birthdays
the older we get. And now I'm bummed because I will not
be gettin' any burgers. She's tryin' to figure out what
to celebrate with. Seriously, folks, I cannot have much
since it's imperative I loose weight quick. I hope it's
not a can of green beans with carrots - even though I do
I've been takin' those thyroid pills for about 4 days,
and mom's noticed I have a teeny bit more get up and go.
Not alot, but it's something. At least I want to get up
and go outside. Before, they'd have to beg me to get out
from under the bed to go. Remember I said sometime before
that's my sanctuary. That's my go to place when I want to
get away from it all.
Oh, mom was mistaken before when she said I was goin' to
be takin' Levothyroxin. I guess she heard the doc wrong
or something. The pills I'm takin' are called Thyrosyn.
Two a day and my kibble has been cut back to 1 stinkin'
cup a day! I've been gettin' lots of carrots. Good thing
I like those, but sheesh, I ain't no bunneh, mom! Every
time she thinks I should get something, here she goes
pullin' out those carrots!! I'm sure I'll be turnin'
orange real soon!
Thanks again for pullin' for me, pals. You all are great!

We just read a friend's diary, and since we're
not on facebook and many of you are, we're
asking you to please vote for Sophie. Here's
the link to her diary entry:
Vote For Sophie
It would be so great for her and her mother,
to win this contest. You see, Sophie won't be
with her mom much longer.

Most every thing is normal in my blood.
I will have to be taking thyroid meds.
The calcium is a little high but it's
because of the thyroid problem.
My mom is breathing sighs of relief. Now
all that's bothering her is the weight.
She's feeling guilty about it.
I know Flicka said that the prescription
diet is YUCK, but I will have to get it
because the doc wants me to loose weight
quick. Later on I can go back to my
normal food - except it'll have to be
the 'weight management' type.
I'm starting Levothyroxin tomorrow. That
will help me loose weight too.
Mom wishes she could make me nice and
svelte RIGHT NOW, but it'll take time.
I'll have to go back in a months time to
get a recheck to see how things are going.
Thanks again, pals, for keeping me in
your thoughts and prayers. We know it
We love you all.

Well, nothing conclusive...yet.
They're doing three types of tests on my blood.
Aaaaand...I'm overweight...a bunch.
Mom knew I was - even though I don't get fed
No free feed here!!
Might be my thyroid - hypothyroidism. The doc
said Cattle Dogs are known for that.
I have a big fatty tumor.
Doc said I have to loose weight and loose it
fast. Sooooooo, that means NO MORE TREATS.
WHAT?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I only get 2 a day!
Mom is gonna have to buy some weight control
food for me. That probably means no more
cooked chicken in my kibble.
That brings us down to the limping. All that
weight is not doing my joints, which might
have a little arthritis, any good at all.
Mom asks you to, please, continue to keep me
in your thoughts and prayers so the blood work
results come back showing nothing seriously
Thank you and thanks for all the POP, gifties,
comments, and pulling for me, dear friends.
My mom cried when she saw all the support I
have in all of you.
Not only do we love you, but we love you love you!

My mom's planning on taking me to the vet sometime
this week. I've been limping and she's a bit worried.
Worrying about me (or any of us) makes her feel sick.
She wants you all to keep me in your thoughts and
prayers, please. Makes her feel better knowing you're
thinking of me.
