Maggie Mae's Mom Too!
Our Vet giggled when she saw Tucker for his Annual exam yesterday. It seems that all of his crazy ball chasing energy has him expending so many calories that I have to bulk him up a bit.... he weighed in at 58lbs and she felt that he needs to be around 65lbs for a good weight. Not that she was concerned at all, but she said, if (Heaven forbid) he should get a virus, he has no reserves of bodyfat. She also said that he was completely solid muscle, again evidence of his strong passion for running after that crazy orange ball of his! : He now gets to eat 3 full meals a day and she would like me to add some wet food to 2 of his meals. My Man of luxury now gets a lunch time meal..... and liberal healthy treats like baby carrots, and a scoop of peanut butter every now and then. She went on to say that Tucker is a beautiful guy, and super healthy in every way. at 18 months, he looks " Beautiful". We Celebrated his good report card with a prompt visit to petsmart where he entertained customers, and shopped for his treats, and picked out a new toy which he promptly destroyed when we got home. It's so funny to hear that my dog should GAIN weight, as I was always so used to hearing the opposite with Frazier as he got older...
