I went to visit with my vet last week. I really like Dr. Clark. She is nice to me and takes really good care of me, ever since I was a little pup. And she always gives me a doggie treat when her examination is done.
So you can imagine my excitement when mom got out my leash and told me that we were going to visit her! I got very excited and started jumping up and down, and mom had trouble getting my leash on.
That’s how excited I was.
Well, Dr. Clark said that I looked like a very healthy dog, and that there was only one problem. She said that I need to lose some weight. I now weigh 97 pounds and she said that is a little too much for me. So mom is supposed to start feeding me a low-calorie diet, and I am supposed to get more exercise. I guess that means more walks and more chasing sticks!
At the end of the visit, Dr. Clark still gave me a doggie treat. But then Hamilton asked for one as well (I told you so!!). She finally did give him one, and guess what he did with it?
He fed it to me! Mmmm, two treats! I like this diet!
And I will insist that Hamilton come along for my NEXT vet visit!
