Mommy and Puppy better get moving!

Oh my goodness! I just can't believe it! Everyone has been telling me that Puppy is overweight, but, I just can't see it. I don't know what they're talking about.

Now I know exactly what they're talking about! Hubby took him to the vet the other day and when he came home and told me how much he weighed, I almost fell out of my chair! Anyone want to take a guess how much he weighs? Oooh, I might just have to use Blogger's new poll feature! Yeah, I think I will! I noticed it yesterday and wanted to try it out - now is my chance!

See, when we went to Dallas, it was so cool because my other brother, who lives in Pueblo, got to come, too. Which was totally awesome because I haven't seen them since Christmas 2004! And, you see, David is a veterinarian. And he told me that, yes, Puppy is definitely overweight. I told him that I just didn't see and I wanted him to show me where he sees it. So that way I would know what to watch for and once we trim him down, not let it happen again. We got distracted with all of our goings-on, though, and he and I both forgot about it. Hopefully I will notice it as he starts to lose weight.

I have cut back his daily dog food, and cut out almost all of his people food. Shhh! When he and I get up in the morning, we have bread together. It is our tradition. And sometimes at night when he is begging me for more dogfood (because he hates his cutback portions!) - I will give him a piece of sliced cheese. Hey! Rome wasn't built in a day, people! Puppy and I have to get used to this new 'plan for living', you know!

****Ok, I've added the poll - ya'll go vote!!

Hey Lisa, I will have to post a picture of my 15lb cat named Salem, he was sick a few months ago, he lost most of the hair on his stomach, so I took him to the vet, he gave him a shot and told me he was allergic to his cat food, he was put on another food and has now ballooned up to 15lbs and has turned into an eating machine.
