Ike is long gone, and we did not get a single drop of its rain! Thank goodness!

This past Sunday, Mama had this brilliant idea to take me to Petsmart, being that I have been stuck inside for a few days. I was excited until Daddy had this superb idea to have me weighed at the Vet's scale...dum...dum, duuuummm... The weigh in for me came in at 22.2 lbs. The horrible word of DIET came out of the Vet Tech's mouth! Notice...the first three letters to "diet" spells D-I-E. Is that a pre-empted message of a painful torture of sort? I think so!

I am in the category between Too Heavy and Ideal. I'm not quite overweight, but am not ideal either. My excuse is that it has been super hot outside and I cannot deal with all that heat...I have black fur! Plus, my broadness is due to the Pug side of me!

Mama said that I have to reduce my intake of food and increase my exercise...YUCK! That would mean that Mama and Daddy would have to take me out on walkies more...hee, hee, heee! This is me waiting to go on my walkie!

Here I am sniffing up all my pee mails.Making sure I recognized that one!Then I checked out the local hangout of the fire hydrant!Then all of a sudden, Mama burst into a sprint. I had to go along with her. Look at me run!
I sure don't run very often. Both Mama and I were exhausted when we got back to the house. All I wanted was some cool water.This is how I feel about D-I-E-t and exercise: I was super tired and exhausted after my 20 minute walkie that entailed some running. Mama said that she would reduce her dessert and sugar intake to diet with me. Now if only we can convince Daddy to give up his Fried Chicken!

Sad about dieting,

Hi, CoCo!
I am so sorry you are on a diet. I know about them!
No treats is not fun. I got only one per day. Low fat chicken jerky.
I am sure with those walkies with your mom you will lose the extra weight and you will be fine!
Kisses and hugs

Diet? Oh no...hmm I better watch how much I eat too if I want to continue eating them all.

Look on the bright side, at least now you are getting more walkies.

Chef said...

Pooh to die-ts, CoCo. It's not like you're fat or anything. I think you should insist on more walks and no treat cutbacks. Absolutely NOT allowed!!

Hi Coco,
I dont think that chart apply to puggles. I hope not! Mommy can feel the outline of my ribs but definitely can see it. Does that mean that I am borderline overweight too? Hope mommy won't cut down my treats. I am happy with more walkies...


Simba and Jazzi said...

You should come for a walk with me. We normally go for an hour and a half.

D.I.E.T is a torture word! So is B.A.T.H! But I guess it's not that bad. You get lonmg walks which I think is alot of fun & you still get food after that but just decreased a little. I know my Mommy's on a strict diet. But I think she's over doing it. She lost 12kgs in two weeks. Pretty fast eh? But I think you look just nice Coco. I think all dogs should be fat!

Hi Coco, the walkies sound good but the less food sounds very bad.

I'm lucky, I don't get fat cuz I get too lots of exercise. I'm still young and love to play all day long, hehe.

Do you get many treats? Apparently they can add alot of weight so maybe all u might have to cut back on is those?


Nevis said...

Sorry to hear about the diet, coco. But it really is healthier for you, sweetie.

The Devil Dog said...

Diets aren't a lot of fun. Somehow, I have managed to avoid them. Good luck with Dad and the chicken.


Rambo said...

Hi Coco,
I know....diets stink. I have been on one before, but it kills me cause I love to eat.
Your right about the DIE part of it.

Molly the Airedale said...

We love our walkies but we also love our treats! Hopefully you'll be slim and trim in no time at all, Coco!

Love ya lots

If it makes you feel any better... My mom was away for a week. She got back last night and the first words out of her mouth were, "OMG Pedro! You're fat!" So buddy, I'm not "ideal" either! She also used that 4-letter word that should be banned D-I-E-t!


Bruschi said...

Oh no CoCo, not a DIET! Well, tell your mommy that I weigh 33 pounds and I was just at the vet yesterday and they said I wasn't overweight.....but that I am the biggest puggle they have ever seen! BOL! BOL!
So CLEARLY 22 pounds is not fat!

Hugs, Bruschi

Clover said...

Aw, CoCo, so sorry about the diet! But I think you look great!!
Love Clover xo

Abby said...

Hi, CoCo...

Diets are no fun...I think you are perfect just the way you are...

More walkies is good, though...

So maybe it won't be too bad...

Abby xxxooo

Hi Coco, hope all is fine with you there. I have an award for you!

Hi Coco; Diet's rot. I prefer the term "lifesyle change". Maybe you could just go for longer walks now that it's getting it getting cooler in Texas?? That way you won't really have to cut back as much on your treats :) XOXO Peanut

Faere said...

Oh Nooooo!! DIEts are really bad. At least you get more walkies tho!
