My handsome boy Ben had his annual physical today. Yet it was just in April when he had the spot removed from his belly.
When Ben was at the vet in April he was 103.4 pounds and since he is a big dog and Rotties are prone to hip problems they wanted me to get him back to his best weight which was under 100 lbs. Yippee, mama's diet for Ben showed that since April (just 4 months folks) he is now at 98.4 pounds.
All I did was do less cookies. If good behaviour deserved a cookie then I broke it in half. He didn't know he was getting half...he knew he had a cookie.
Ben LOVES his veggies. When I make a salad or hears me washing veggies he runs in the kitchen. Ben loves the hard white parts of Romaine and Iceberg lettuce; loves the tips of zuchinni, the ends of celery and carrots. Oh, also loves the ends of asparagus and fresh spinash....go figure. DO NOT give onions to dogs.
Anyway, most of you have already stopped reading my blog by now I'm sure, but hey, don't have a new picture of my rug.
This is what my boy endured today:
~Check on surgery spot of mass removal
~senior blood profile
~Anal sac expression
~plus various and sundry probes and punches
So on the way home when Ben was stressed out, panting and under duress, he said to me...".a little this, a little that."
But if ya want to know what he did have to say which I won't post here.... write me to inquire. If you are a NO-Reply blogger you won't get the message.
Have a great evening everyone. And FYI I adore my wonderful adopted Rottweiler. Do not hesitate to adopt a dog. I prefer big dogs as they are great protectors and faithful companions who want to be with family too.
