Autumn & Lola Posted December 9, 2016 Share Posted December 9, 2016 This evening we took Lola to the vet for her annual check-up. She only barked at two dogs (out of three), and quickly calmed down when firmly directed, which was an improvement. She was wonderful with the staff, which she always is. We gave her a 'B' for behavior. The vet gave her good marks for everything...until she stepped onto the scale. She is now slightly over 23lbs. Ideally, she should be about 21. This is the first time I've had to deal with an overweight dog. I am not trying to pass the buck, but I know what the problem is. The menfolk in this house would give her treats until she exploded if I were to drop dead tomorrow. It is so frustrating. When I told the both of them to stop giving her so many, it was suggested to me (who gives her her two meals) to cut back on the amount of breakfast and dinner, so that they could continue giving her the same amount of treats. Arrrgghhh! I guess I'm going to have to hide the treats - not from Lola, but from the men! 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
