Good News & Bad News

On the weight scales.

For those of you keeping tabs on my weight issues, here’s a little update.  The good news and the bad news.

I just got back from the vet’s office where I so obediently got up on the scales and sat there.  Ever so patiently.  Until She said “good boy!”  (I love it when She says that!)

Anyway, the bad news is that I’ve gained weight AGAIN. The good news is that it wasn’t as much as She feared.  But if We don’t do something, I’ll be over 25 pounds in no time.  Which is NOT what I’m supposed to weigh.

It’s a good thing I don’t eat lots over the holidays like humans do.

(By the way, that stuff on my nose is dirt.  I had a whale of a time digging on my walk before we headed out to the vet’s office.  The stuff just wouldn’t wipe off!)

What You Learned Today:

  • We pups, like humans, need to take care of our health.
  • Weight is a pretty important thing to watch.  Especially for a little guy like me.  Here I am about 3-4 pounds overweight. That’s ALOT for a dog.
  • We do everything right.  I eat only a specific amount of dog food a day.  No human food (only cauliflower, green beans, a little piece of a rice cake as a treat and every so often a piece of a Lean Treat.)
  • I take walks at least twice a day.  And play with my girlfriend outside when I can.
  • How do you watch your weight????  Give me some pointers so I can get this weight off!  (I have to admit, I love to sleep. Maybe that has something to do with it.)

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

  1. We know you must be really muscular. And we’re not kidding about that. Piper and Lilly are both conformation size, but their weight is a little high because they are so muscular. We just won’t get into Carrleigh’s weight issues, but she is very well proportioned (is that something like saying “she’s fat, but has such a pretty face”). Anyway our Vet thinks we are all so healthy and that it’s not bad to be a couple of pounds overweight. He tells Mom that picking up one of her Scotties is like picking up a cinder-block with a head on it!! And that’s what she strives for.

    So the next time you go to the DIY store, have your peeps compare you to a cinder-block. If it’s close, you know you’re OK!

    • You guys are the greatest. You know, She tells me that my father was built like a Mac Truck. When I was a puppy, people called me a “little Mac”- or is that Mack – with a K? – We’ll have to have a conversation with our vet. And we’ll tell ’em you sent us. Whew! That makes me feel better.

      Is there a little one at your house yet????

      Roo Roo to You and Yours,

    • OH my gosh. I forgot, in my last reply, that the CINDER BLOCK idea is right about right! It’s true! Some of us do feel like cinder blocks with heads!!! What a hoot!

      Your Pal,

  2. No little ones yet – Miss Lilly just finished eating 3 or 4 miniature marshmallows so I doubt that it will be within the next 24 hours – I thinking about the 10th or 11th. She’s just lying around being spoiled. She’ll stop eating when it gets close to time – we’ll be posting it as soon as it happens

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
