I am NOT Fat

The Vet says Lorelei should lose about 5 pounds (she's 100 pounds when svelte) to ease the pain in her arthritic hips.  She is NOT happy about the reduction in treats.  


  1. Poor Lorelei. It's always the treats that go first. Then you'll start getting green veggies to eat instead of all your dog food. We know how this works. XOX Xena, Lucy and Chia

  2. Of course you're not fat! You're just shapely.

  3. We are sorry to hear this! With our Man gone, none of us are eating as much so Lady things we will all have lost weight this week! Lee and Phod

  4. To enjoy more food more freely one must do more exercise...choose!

    1. Unfortunately, as crippled as she is with arthritis in her hips she can't do a lot of exercise. She gets two long walks, and 3 sessions of fetch in the yard with a ball daily and only 3 cups of kibble (with a few veggies thrown in) She has the metabolism I got when I hit menopause :-)

  5. I feel her pain. I'm not happy about reduced treats either even when I know it's for my own good. Hopefully diversion will help Loralei cope as she slims down.
