On fathers day I went to my grandpas house to celebrate. I live in an apartment so I don't have my own yard to run around in. Grandpas yard is not fenced in so the only way that I was allowed to run is with a LONG rope tied to my collar. I have never been off leash before so mom was scared but with the rope attached if I got to close to the road someone could step on the rope and stop me. I don't know why she is so scared I never let her out of my sight anyway. I loved being able to run in the yard.
Yesterday went really well. I ate all of my brunch when mommy set it out and most of my dinner. I'm liking this new routine, I use the bathroom noticeably less!
Last night mommy and suz had some friends over and we stayed up pretty late so I was shocked when mommy got up at 10am this morning. I walked out into the living room with her and she put my brunch down but I went over to the couch and lay down. What was she thinking? I'm to sleepy to think about food.
Today was extremely better than the past two. Mommy put my food down and I ate almost all of it in the half hour she left it down! I re-read my post from yesterday and I think it is a bit confusing. I'm not actually on a diet she just thought I was over eating because she free fed me so now we are one a feeding schedule so I don't get over weight. She thinks I am adjusting pretty well. For the first couple of days I would dilly dally and not eat when she put the food down because I assumed it would be out all day but no. I'm getting the hang of it and soon it will just be normal.
Mom got inspired to do this because the other day in the pet store she saw a HUGE puggle and the mommy said she has been dieting her puggle for ever a year and the weight comes off very slowly. I'm glad she at least cares about me enough to not let me get unhealthy.
OK so I'm not starving BUT I am starting a new "diet." Mommy keeps saying that its a preventative diet to make sure I don't get chunky. A few people have made comments to her that I am "filling out." She also says it will make her a more responsible puggle parent. So basically I only get to eat twice a day and a certain amount each time. She used to leave food out for me all day and I would eat a little here and there, so adjusting to the twice a day feedings are a little confusing. I'm sure I will get used to it.
Right now I weigh a solid 17lbs. I wonder if I will lose weight, or if I wasn't over eating before after all.
Here are a few before pictures:
OH I did get a few extra treats today because after I was brushed mom said I must have lost a pound of fur! lol
