“You’re just pleasantly plump” he said in a cutesy little voice. I was mortified and by the look on Lily’s face so was she.
“Should I give her less to eat? I only sprinkle a little bit of cheese on her food and make her eggs on Sunday….it’s those dang Beggin strips huh? it could just be her winter coat”, Lily stood there looking violated as I was giving the vet excuse after excuse justifying her extra weight gain.
“No no she’s fine, she’s healthy but she shouldn’t gain anymore weight” he said.
“Hear that Lily?” she was ignoring me …. she was pouting….I didn’t blame her, I’d be pissed to if I was told that I was “pleasantly plump”. She was only 20 pounds but she did gain 2 pounds since the last time she was there…..but I blame in on winter weight gain we all store up for winter right?
Later that day it was Darts turn to visit the Vet for his annual shots…..
“Dart…let’s get you on the scale” the vet assistant said.
“Come on Dart….stop being stubborn”
He resists going on the scale just like his Mommy does (me) …haha…I pick him up and the assistant and I blocked him from walking off the scale.
“20 pounds…..ok, the doctor will be with you in a minute”
No sooner as she leaves the vet comes in …..
“grrrrrr” Dart says in a low growl.
“Dart, knock it off its the doctor”
I place Mr.Wanna Be Rott on the table while the Vet admired him,
“What a handsome boy you are, he’s 20 pounds!! ….you are all muscle, cute under bite……he’s so healthy”
“so his weight is ok?”
(because earlier you called his mom pleasantly plump and they are the same weight…is what I wanted to say, but I kept my mouth shut)
“ohhh yes, he’s very healthy”
Needless to say, Mr. Muscles and Miss Pleasantly Plump got Beggin Strips and some extra lovin when they got home because they had to get shots.
