Weight watchers

Dear world,
Fuzz and I have been officially told by the vet that we need to lose weight. Fuzz's target is at least 10 lbs, so that is mine too. And my Mom wants to lose that much since that is what she gained since we moved to Memphis (was I supposed to tell you that?) Anyway, so all our food has been reduced. I am fine cause I can chew on tennis balls. Mom is eating salads but would rather be eating bread. Fuzz is the most miserable. He keeps waiting for more food in his bowl. Oh well. I guess this means pizza is not being delivered anytime soon.
Love always,
Bear

  2. My person used the Wii game for the first time since February yesterday. I have my own avatar there and she picked me up to weigh me. I lost .7 pounds since I was last there. Not very much. I hope yours goes faster. Maybe more walks will help? *wag wag wag*

  4. Fuzz is a mix dog. He is bigger. He has to eat more.
    I think you should see a veterinary paid by Purina or something like that. I'm sure they will recommend buying more food.
    Tennis balls are 0 calories so that should be ok.

  5. We are in the same boat! Get a bag of frozen green beans. Simmer it in low salt beef broth. Refreeze the batch in smaller sized bags. These are great puppy slimmer treats. A dab of canned pumpkin [but no the pie filling] is great, too. It tastes rich, but it's good for pups. As far as people treats, We're still working on that one. Good luck on your slim down guys!

  6. Sounds like a great excuse to get them to play fetch with you more. You can say you need the exercise to help lose weight! :)

  9. You could all eat carrot sticks on your diet. My humans prefer them with some kind of dip (which defeats the purpose of their diets) but I kinda like 'em. I prefer da baby carrots; they are sweeter and easier to *crunch*! Good luck (I know the feeling...)

  10. Mom is on a diet too. I don't need to lose weight but because she is dieting she won't share her food with me. Something about portion control.

  11. Bear and Fuzz,
    I know you can lose the weight. You're young, healthy, and active. When I adopted Bentley he tipped the scale at 100 pounds! I didn't think he was "fat" because I could feel his ribs like they say you're supposed to be able to do. But his vet called him "a sausage" and said he was supposed to have a waist, not a straight line from his ribs back to his hips. After several months of portion control (about 3 measuring cups dry food per day), NO treats (except for love), and lots of walking, he was down to a trim 75 pounds and stayed there throughout his senior years.

    I'm looking forward to your updates about how you're losing weight, especially so your hips stay healthy.
