We weighed Biscuit a month ago for her heartworm injection and she weighed 21.7kg....she has been at 19kg before and was a perfect weight. So I told my mum to stop killing her with banana's (Biscuit gets a banana as a treat..my mum will give her like three in one day!
) and I started actually weighing her food again, rather than just guessing it. We started walking her more often, and faster. On Thursday I decided to take her to work to bath her. She knows that every time she goes to the vet she is on the scales so she hopped up and sat on the scales. They read 22.7kg!!!!!
I was so upset cause we had tried soooo hard this last month! So when I picked her up from my p's I told them no food what so ever at their house!! My mum gives my dog and her dog a bone every morning...which is fine....except Biscuit must be eating Cindy's too. So no breakfast for her at nana's house now!
So I'm on a mission...to get her to lose weight! My mum is going to get my dad to feed Cindy when he gets up (he gets up at 5am) so that cindy can eat her bone in peace.
Biscuit now weighs the most she has ever weighed! I'm gone from owning a dog that never put on weight to a dog that will need to be on a diet forever!!
My mum has sworn to me that she will not feed her anything at her place until she is back down to 19kg. I don't want her to lose it too quickly, so hopefully by the end of April she'll be back there. It's just so frustrating to be dieting your dog and have her gain weight! Mum's place is the only way she can be getting extra food....some days here she wouldn't even eat...she's been filling herself up at mum's obviously!
Anyway guys wish me luck! I'll be weighing her monthly.
