Food with holes ...

My Mom went to the grocery store today and stressed over what to buy. Eggs have something called cholesterol, oatmeal has carbs and cereal has sugar. Mom does not know what to eat anymore. I don't know why but it seems like people everywhere get all stressed out in January and try to lose weight. Are your people doing that? Sometimes they even try to exercise.

A year ago at my yearly check up I weighed 16 pounds and Miss Cindy told my Mom she didn't want me to gain another ounce! Mom listened to Miss Cindy and went out and bought me some new food. The new food had smaller pieces and each piece of food had a hole it it. I ate the new food .... it was good. One day recently the boy that used to live here before I came to live here, came to visit me. He had not seen me in a long time and he said I was skin and bones. (Yes, it hurt my feelings.) He even called me "Auschwich dog" whatever that means.

This got my Mom to thinking and she decided it was time for me to go see Miss Cindy again. This time we went in the car to her office .... instead of walking next door to her house. At the office, she has this short table that you have to step on and then you have to 'stay' and then you can get off. It told Miss Cindy that I weighed 12.5 pounds. I had lost 3.5 pounds of me somewhere! My Daddy, who is good with math, said I had lost nearly 22% of me eating the food with holes in it and he needed to go on that food. Miss Cindy said I looked GREAT at first and then she said maybe Mom should give me a little more of the food with holes in it each time she feeds me.
Meanwhile, Mom went out and bought me some food with bigger pieces and no holes. I am eating it. But the boy, who was here at Christmas, still calles me Auschwich dog.

Hi, Copper!
My mom needs to get rid of some pounds too! Maybe she can eat some food with holes to accomplish that!
You look great in those pictures!
Kisses and hugs

Wowie Zowie, 22%? Holy cow! Where did the rest of you go?

Congrats on your weight loss. I am glad your Miss Cindy said you can eat more. If you are like me, then you love food!

You're looking pretty good in your "after" photo. I can see a difference.

You really can't see much of a difference I don't think. But I really did lose 3.5 pounds and my dad really say he needs to eat my food so I am worried.

Weird .. my word verification is 'ovened.' I hope no one tries to put me in the oven.
