Juju for Tubby and Pittie Post Day REminder

Tubby here: So mom is  a bit worried about me

When I was weighed at my senior wellness exam I clocked in at 23.9 lbs which is skinny for me, just two weeks ago I was 24.6 and in January I was 25 lbs.   Mom is a bit worried that this weight loss is something ominous, but then she is a big worrier.  Now I had not eaten breakfest this morning, in preparation for my regular blood work, and I had pooed so the vet said that cold be caused the difference.  Plus mom switched my food to Orijen senior recently so that  may have less calories.   The vet is not to worried since she says I look great and Im very happy and active at home.   The plan is to look at blood work weigh me next week and then if problems continue consider ultrasounds and so forthI'm trying to tell mom not to worry but before Zira died she had unexplained weight loss, every test in the book showed nothing, so any weight loss gives her the heebie jeebies now.  The great news is mom and dad are going to give me more food, woo hoo!  So anyway please send some juju my way if you can (and Ping's way we are hoping her liver enzymes which where elevated in December aren't looking any worse).

Oh and don't forgte to participate in

  2. Now Tubby, you can't go getting all skinny on us. Unless you want to start being called Slim. When we changed foods in the fall, all 3 of us trimmed down quickly. It was a bit disconcerting. Maybe that is all that is going on with you. Hoping for good blood tests all around!

    P.s., tell your Mom to friend mine Kathy Hancich Waldron, and she will add her to that pug slut group. But I'll tell you, prepare to be neglected!

  3. juju to Tubby and puggie vibes for Ping. Mack switched to Orijen Sr last fall. he does really well on it. Hopefully, that's all it is.

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie, Mack and foster Mario

  4. Tubby, pumpkin, you are NOT supposed to be losing weight like this and stressing your mom out. Your NAME is TUBBY! So eat up and stay strong and healthy! Sending you lots of power of the paw from all the four leggeds here, and Mom is sending some hugs for the humans!

  5. Am sending good vibes and pawsitive thoughts for you and Ping!

  6. Tubby, I know its a big favor to ask, but please beg your Mamma for extra treats so you put more weight on! Like Tucker said, your name is TUBBY! You're allowed to be juicy :)

  7. Tubby, I think the Vet is right but if it means you getting more food, so much the better! All the best to you and your Mom!


  8. Sending good juju for everyone. You have a whole month before the holiday to cook up some drama, Tubby. Time it right, but enjoy that extra food!

  9. We will be thinking of you both. Hope you get better. But still its kinda nice that you get to more treats. Sending lots of good juju!!! :0)

  10. It appears our Mom's have the same worries. I've not been eating very well and am losing weight too. My blood tests in February were good. I keep telling Mom just give me boiled chicken. She keeps talking about calcium, proper nutrients, blah, blah, blah. She says I have to eat my kibble and I say no and leave it in the dish.

    Tubby I hope all is well for you. Gobble up those extra goodies.
