OK. Here’s an update. Dr. Elliott says that all I have to do is change my diet. There’s nothing wrong with me except that there are too many calories in my food. We kept a careful food diet and faxed it over to her and that’s what she said. Dr. Elliott’s nice. And knows a lot about Scotties. In fact, she has more Scottie patients that anybody else We know!
So, I’m switching from my California Natural lamb and rice kibble to a low-fat version. I wonder if I’ll like it? I can still eat my string beans. And my apples. And my cauliflower.
Wish me luck. I’ll weigh in again in about five weeks.
Whew. This diet thing is pretty hard. You know, He can eat whatever He wants and never gain an ounce; She, on the other hand, has to watch every little thing She puts in Her mouth.
I’m happy to share my new food with Her. I’ll save Her some. Think She’ll join me in a little nosh? (Or is that “gnosh?”)
What You Learned Today:
- Dr. Elliott was amazed at the food diary We sent over. She said it was so comprehensive and she often comments about how she wishes more people would care as much about their pets. I can’t imagine somebody not taking care of their canine (or feline, or bovine…etc.) companion like They take care of me. Can you?
- You know, I think if people thought about their animal friends like they do about their people friends, then things would be a lot nicer.
- You know the saying, “wag more, talk less.”
- Woo Hoo! Here’s to a svelte me!
