Sprout-monster

We've created a monster.

We started playing with Sprout with the laser pointer to get her more active to aid in the weight loss efforts. She goes absolutely nuts for the thing!

The first night she was out of breath in a couple minutes. She can now run after that thing for an hour straight. Which, I suppose was the goal...getting her more active. But she's absolutely nutso about it! She won't let us put it away, lol. She's so cute though.

I think she looks slimmer, but it's hard to tell what her actual weight is doing. She lost 4 ounces, then gained 3. Maybe it's re-distribution of fat to muscle (that's what I'd tell myself anyhow, lol).

That is funny! It's good she is getting her exercise though. Hmm...I wonder if a pointer would work for a chunky dachshund?

I never would have thought dogs would be interested, but give it a shot! My friend at work says her 80-lb lab tries to play with the dot when she has the pointer out for her cats. She says it's pretty funny, but she has to be careful so her house won't get destroyed!

Thats cute! One of my mom's cats is nuts about the laser pointer as well.He goes nuts and if he hears the chain part of it or something that sounds like the chain part,he will jump up and start looking for it!!! Haha.

Dogs do like laser pointers.My mom's 10 yr old dog goes after the laser pointer and I know of other people who have dogs that love them as well.
