yup.... 6.2 lbs so far in weight loss. ummm, Ok, so, not me, ok....I mean the dog!
Mollie... is struggling a bit with arthritis and is over weight... so Dr. Sarah said.... she needs to take some off! So August 1st, we changed her diet and we added some magic powder to each supper to help her hips and she is springing in each step now. She has lost 6.2 lbs in 6 weeks. She lost a lot at first because she just wouldn't eat. Are you kidding... it was like horse pellets... LOTS of fibre and not very tasty. But we added some soft food at supper, and it seemed to go down better. These past few weeks, she is eating it pretty happily because I think she is pretty hungry. I think with the hip meds, and the 6 lbs off, she is feeling better and she is looking a bit better too.
She had a ball at Keji, mostly because Jilly was there.. her second and better MOM. She walked, swam and ate like she was not on a diet....... right off the fork... sausage, french toast... etc. What fun for her. I was pretty worried because she is sort of a scaredy dog... afraid of the dark, and bugs, and is not the best behaved around other animals. But, she was excellent, just the odd bark when another dog would walk by. Most of the dogs who walked by were wearing raincoats (since it rained all weekend) so it could have been just Mollie giving her opinion on how stupid they looked in rainwear! Such a snobby dog, my Mollie is!
