So I had my check up today and the vet told me I was a very good girl! But he also said that I am a big girl and need to lose about 10lbs to get my girlish figure back. He said it will help me move around better as I’m starting to slow down just a bit and it’s sometimes takes more effort to stand up after a nap. There was a lot of talk about calories to help me get to my goal but I sorta tuned all of that out. I was still processing what he said and hoping I would still get my snacks and morning bite of cheese.
My Margret hugged me and said not to worry it would all be fine. I did manage to get an extra treat from the vet when I went up to him and sat like the good girl that I am and yep you guessed it he laughed and gave me one more treat for the road.

Ten pounds!!?? That seems like a lot. I think you’ll still get a cheese bite now and then but I bet it will be smaller. I have been on treat restriction before. It’s not fun, but it works. Good luck, fren. xo
Love and licks,
Oh no, Bessie! Not that “You’ve gotta lose weight” ploy to justify giving you less food and treats! We think you should go on a hunger strike. That’ll teach ’em! XOX Xena, Lucy and Chia
