There have been some changes around here, first up, the dog is bordering on 'obese.' I took him to the vet for a check up and you should have heard the things they said, "TWENTY POUNDS heavier than last time." He is now 100 pounds even. We feel bad. I used to take him to the dog park a few times a week, but it was winter, a second baby, the second baby eats table food and half of it ends up on the floor in dog territory, things were crazy last year and the dog suffered. We are turning things around, I took him to the dog park that night and we started running together. The two of us will get in shape together. I jogged last Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and again today. I have knots in the place my calves used to be.

So, back to the vet. They kept saying things like, "We tried to do x (I'll spare you the tmi) but he's so overweight it wasn't easy," and "I'm prescribing an overweight dog food, it's $65 a bag." I thought, "I know how to save money AND help the dog loose weight-feed him less." I know, I know, I'm totally kidding. We are going to try running and cut out the treats and see how we do. Both of us!

Ouch! Our tomcat is a bit overweight, but I don't think he'll go running with me. So he's getting the insanely expensive food...
