Hi guys. So I've lived in 'the country' for a few months now and I am lookin' sweet. I'm slimming up! I will never be small like most Min Pins but I'm ok with that. The strange thing is that the vet weighed me and said I have gained weight! How does that happen? He said maybe I was bulking up? Do you think that is right?

You've probably just gained muscle from all that running around in the country.

Muscle is what all my weight is, but the vet still thinks I'm "fat". Like he knows what he's talking about. Oh, gotta go, I smell someone cooking...

My mom started to go to a gym regularly and the first time she weighed herself...she weighed more, but her body fat percentage was lower. That is probably what you have done. Mommy is a science nerd...so she will give you the geeky version..

Muscle is much denser than fat, so a smaller volume of muscle could weigh more than a larger volume of fat. In other words...due to the density of muscle, its heavier than fat...
