NO, I didn't pose for these pictures. And they weren't altered in any way either. This should be obvious seeing as how bad they are.
My humans can't understand how I keep my blanket on.
I don't want to sound too intelligent but I think it may be s.t.a.t.i.c e.l.e.c.t.r.i.c.i.t.y.
I wish my stay-at-home human had taken the trouble to airbrush the last picture. I look so F.A.T. in it. It's very unfair that she deletes any bad picture of her, and keeps mine because - "They're funny!"
And while we're on the subject on being F.A.T, I've lost another 0.8 kgs. *YAY* for me.
I wonder what I'll get as a reward. Maybe a jam doughnut. The Bertoni ones are alright.
How is Rufus B Thumper?
We think he's going to confound the vet again!
He's walking reasonably well [could it be the daily massages? :p]
And he's back to bossing Georgia around.
Yesterday evening, he insisted on going on his Treat Tour - Baker's Delight, Blooms, Victoire, 2 petshops and a vet. Of course, he wasn't allowed any, but boy, did he try! He sat himself down in front of Victoire and refused to budge. I had to lift his bum up to get him moving. At least the usual crowd of people there had a good laugh.
Rufus is also thriving on his new diet and can't wait for his meals. He gets fed 3 times a day. It was 4 last week. My dream, and intention, is to get him back down to 2. It would be great if I could get him to tolerate SOME low-fat kibble but I'm not going there again, yet.
Anyway, after some trial and lots of error, we have found that this works best for Rufus:
Rufus's Post-Pancreatitis Diet
BASE Plain white rice - cooked Oatmeal - cooked [this can make the meal a bit gooey] Bran - raw and unprocessed
MEAT Cooked chicken breast fillet, lean lamb, lean beef [trim away any ANY excess fat] Lamb/Beef - panfry without oil/grill Chicken - boil in a little water to make stock. Cool the stock down and remove any excess oil at top before using it to flavour the rice.
VEGETABLES Leafy greens - blanch and blend Carrots and celery - blend raw
Now, if only we could figure out the incontinence bit.
I might be Very Opinionated, but I'm NOT a little dog.
Luckily for little dogs, I'm kept on a Somewhat Short Leash.
Some truly fascinating facts about me are in my very first post "Hello, will you be my friend?"
Jordan Puff Piglet ??.??.????-09.02.2009 Adopted 29.10.2000
I never met Mr Piglet. He was Mr Thumper's housemate and best friend. He was clever, handsome, funny, strong and gentle. Also [apparently] perfect and a saint. I only came to live here because Mr Thumper got really sad after Mr Piglet went away. I always get compared to Mr Piglet.
Rufus B Thumper 30.04.2000-29.04.2011 Adopted 13.01.2001
My benefactor. He chose me to bring home out of all the dogs he met at the pound. He was already old and grumpy when I met him. Maybe if he'd been younger, he might have been my best friend. Mr Thumper was as big as a bear and had a very long tongue. He was very popular with the ladies and most other humans too. He's with Mr Piglet now.
My out-at-work human works hard to buy me nutritious food like lamb bones and lentils. He uses his Very Loud Voice only on my stay-at-home human which is why he's my favourite person in the world. He has a nice round soft tummy and is My Cushion of choice. *BREAKING NEWS* August 2012! My Cushion has left his job to be my full time Cushion! How lucky am I!
My stay-at-home human gets paid a lot of money to look after me. 100 dollars a week. She spends most of it on cream cakes and passionfruit tarts then wonders why she's getting fat. Strangely enough, she's also My Nutritionist.
