Last year, when I took JoJo to the vet for her annual check up with Dr. Barkow (Yeah. I know.), she weighed 55 pounds.
Dr. Barkow said . . . that was a perfect weight for her. But that he wouldn't want her to gain any more weight.
In the summer, it is easy to keep her in shape.
We're out in the yard so much when the weather is nice. And she plays Ball. And Stick. And Chase the Squirrel. And Bark at the Neighbors.
And it's easy to take long walks.
And she swims at the lake Up North.
But now? Well, now it's winter.
We're not out so much. The balls are packed away for the winter. The sticks are buried under the snow. There is no swimming. And . . . it's treacherous to walk every day.
So JoJo has lost her waistline . . . and gained too much weight.
Time for the Pudgy Pup Weight Loss Countdown! (Before we go visit Dr. Barkow in April.)
Now, it's two-miles-a-day!
No matter the weather!
It's time to get that Pudgy Pup back in shape!
Jenny is in perfect shape, weight-wise. She is sleek and rather elegant. But she can use the long walks to strengthen those bionic knees of hers!
