The verdict is finally in on whether I was just fluffy or fat. It seems that I didn't have as much excess hair as Mom thought. When the nice lady brought me out to her, she freaked out! I am a pudgy pooch, porky pup, pleasingly plump or just plain fat! Now I am on a very strict diet...yes, I said D-I-E-T! My food and treats have been cut in half. That is just soooo not fair...especially since Princes Patches gets EXTRA food and treats! Mom and Dad are hoping that Patches and I will rip and tear around the yard, once my soreness goes away. It looks like that might actually happen since we have been playing together inside the house!
Patches is doing great and starting to gain a little weight. Her ribs aren't so obvious anymore and this red collar is the third one she has had on in a week. The first one she wore was borrowed from Ezzy Rider because the collar our mom took to pick her up with was way too big. Next, Dad put a black one on her, but with my new Aire-cut, he had a hard time telling us apart in the dark. Of course, he wouldn't have had that problem if he could see our hind quarters or if he reached down to touch us! Now, Penny's collar is blue, mine is black and Patches' is red. Now, even the neighbors should be able to tell us apart.
This is Patches licking the last smell out of her food bowl. She eats at the speed of lightning and then keeps licking the bowl. I think she thinks that if she licks it long enough, more food will magically appear! Penny and I think she is getting preferrential treatment! She gets more food than we do and she sleeps on the guest bed. Who told her she could do THAT? Oh, well, at least Penny and I still get the run of the house when Mom and Dad go somewhere! Princess Patches still has to stay in her crate while they're gone!
See you next time, everybody! We're headed out to the backyard to chase some squirrels!
Poppy, Penny & Patches
