Doc Put Me on a Diet - Not Happy

Mom took me to the Vet for my 8 week B12 shot. Mom was praising me because I lost almost a pound. The Doc and his nurse were mean to Mom and more or less said if she loved me she would cut down on my food once again. It made Mom feel horrible and of course I knew this was bad news for me. So now I have to survive on a cup and a half of food a day. I'm so hungry and I let Mom know it all the time. She's very sad that she has to follow the doc's orders. I eat hyperallergenic food and Mom doesn't think it is lo cal and my B12 shot makes me hungry as well.

I'm a big boned Boston Terrier and I have gained some weight over the last couple of years. I was at 29.8 last week. I know I should be at 25 but it's very difficult.

Mom is no spring chicken and she has bad knees so we don't go for walks but the little doorknob (Quigley) keeps me active. We have a big backyard and hang out there when the snow stays away.

So Mom says we are all going on this diet together to support me. Me, her and the doorknob. We're all shooting for 5 pounds. I hope we'll survive.

Bummer!! Being on a diet must be awful... when mom thought I was a bit overweight she brought EVO now we are on Orijen 6 fish which is perfect for pups that have allergies. Mom says it gives me gas but it keeps me and Willow in shape... howling funny!
