Weighty issues...

I have been bored with not moving around a lot so I don't over heat so I thought I would do some reading. Look what I found in the magazine that comes from my VET.

This chart shows dogs by body condition. Well I know that I am slim and fit...

Check out my curves!! I am IDEAL. (I would probably say I am SUPER AWESOME but that doesn't seem to be on the chart anywhere)

Lets take a look at Tanner...

FAT KID!!!! Mom said now that it is not so hot she is going to walk him more so he loses some weight (and she does too). I think I should also get his serving of dinner for a few weeks!! How do you guys rank on the condition chart?? I don't see anything on there for relentlessly huge dogs or dogs that will not be named but have HUUUUGE behinds.

I, like you Joey, have a perfect BT physique. Strong, lean, muscular, simply perfect.
My sis Trudy is a fuzzy fat ass.
My sis Molly is looking more and more like a brindle sausage.
And my littlest sis Ginger is thick and ripped with muscles like a little Chi-mix gymnast.

But mommy has been feelin the sickies and we don't get to run much right now. (Mommy note: soon, soon)

Ummm. How can we be sure that those pictures weren't "manipulated?" Even camera angle can make a difference. But if all is truly as it appears to be... well... there IS a significant difference in the two of you. Maybe Tanner can wear your squeeze suit, Joey. Would that help? You know. Sort of like a girdle?

We'd better stop now...

What sleek lines you have, Joe, and a nice nip at the waist as well. As for other little porkers, hmmm....

I really like to think of myself as extra-muscular, but actually I am sort of like Tanner!

Tanner has moved beyond "substantial" and I'll bet the vet will have something to say about it next time he visits.

I, at least, can say that I am well over the average WFT height, and get a bit of a concession from bitchy vets. But I don't think it will work for him.

Maybe he needs to borrow Snickers' treadmill?

Hey Joe,

I went on diet chow last winter and I must say, I look pretty good. I was getting pudgy but now you can feel ribs and I got my tuck back. The trick is to find a diet chow you like, then STAY ON IT!

Tanner, on the other hand, seems to need some assistance with his weight problem. Good luck to him!

My vet says that I am right at my ideal weight. One of the cats that live here is not. She is obese!

You look great, Joey. The vet always says that I am in perfect condition even though peeps seem to think I am heavy. I just am very solidly built.

Joe, you sure are in perfect shape. I think Tanner needs to go on The Biggest Loser. For more than one reason. HAHAHAHA. It rocks to be a big brudder.

You do have a perfect doggy shape and size. I think I have one too but it's hard to tell with all the hair. Was there anything for shaggy doggies? Tanner is a little round.

Hey, I stay ideal because I only eat when I am hungry and need it. If I havent moved much, I skip a meal. No biggie right? Gotta keep my lean Boston shape. Another meal is coming.

My sister Leela though, she was a street BT. She will eat both our meals in a second. Even though she has lived with us for two years now, she seems afraid she wont find her next meal. She is a fatty--I tell you. We are now on light food thanks to her fat ass.

Maybe her and Tanner need to go to BT fat camp together.

Your new friend,
