Hope all my friends had a happy and safe Thanksgiving. I'm on a special diet, but Mom gave us chicken fingers. Not your typical chicken fingers. After Mom eats her chicken she lets us lick her fingers. She's a smart lady, we get all the flavor and nothing to bother my tummy.

I was just at the vet for my 8 week B12 shot. They weighed me, and are you ready for this. I'm under 25 pounds. 24.5. I had to change my Dogster weight class. Mom was so excited. I was 23 pounds when Mom and I hooked up 5 years ago. That's my goal. Pretty soon the vet will be saying. Don't you feed that dog?

Better news. Mom has a 4 day weekend. She says she not budging out of the house until Monday. Are we lucky or what. Of course there will be a lot of napping on our part, but Mom won't mind, she's always busy with something.

Oops time for a nap.

Hooray! Glad to hear you had some progress in the weight department, that can be sooooo hard just loosing a little bit!
And it's nice to have your human with you more, isn't it?! Having a brofur is all very well, but not nearly as nice as having your mama :)
I was having trouble loosing weight so my dogtor tested me for low thyroid function and now I take medicine and am loosing weight. Mom decided to get full blood panels done for me and Fitz to give a baseline of values in case one changes as we get older. The dogtor said age six or seven is a good time to do this. It's kind of pricey, but worth it. Fitz has low thyroid too but no symptoms so he doesn't have to take medicine. He's slim and muscular.

Hey Tessa, my Mom has low thyroid too. She takes medicine and has lost about 8 pounds.

We are very lucky to have moms that take such good care of us.
