City Life is effecting my body…

My Shoulder Is sooo sore

My shoulder is sooo sore...I lick it a lot.

I must be getting older because I’m starting to Limp…again. My right shoulder hurts from all the wear and tear of walking on the concrete, rough digging in the mud and dirt at the parks, playing tons of soccer kicking the ball around, and just hard play with my friends. But, my new neighborhood Vet says I need to lose some weight…8-13 lbs to be exact. 😦 I’m 103 now,  and I know I’m a lil chubby, but I come from big “stock” as my human mommy says. My bio (biological) dad was 120 and my bio mom was 95…. I know I that doesn’t mean much to a lot of people, but it does explain my size…a little anyway!

My parents took the vet seriously AND stopped giving me table scraps, only a few small diet cookie treats a day, and no extra ANYTHING…ever. And I’m getting more exercise too!

For all you dog owners out there you should know that after a thorough check of my limbs, the doctor said that table scraps are the worst for me because of the amount of calories in your people food. My friend Lynn said she gave her dog pedialyte in his water to fill her dog up & help him lose weight, but other friends suggest green beans or broccoli in my food to add healthy fiber and it’s a good belly filler! Anyway, I know I have a long road ahead, but I want to feel better, so it looks like a lot of tough love is in order…and anything’s pawsable!
