Coal is on SparkDogs!

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

The weight is ""DOWN""--a pound----recycled-----but----I
'll take it!
That is after a concentrated effort to ""Dreadmill"---walk Germans (as in dogs)-eat vegetables in my frig--and eating at home, no matter what "himself" wants (He loves MacDonald's )- Oh-----and only a handful of nuts at bedtime--nothing else!
Coal, the resident overweight German Shepherd who has joined SparkDogs, was told he can't have all his friends over till he sheds some pounds here---(LOL?)

I told him that!
And so-----Coal and I are trying VERY hard to Spread the Spark----
But--right now, the wash is in (the machine is still chugging along on a "'lower" spin cycle---time to hit the Dreadmill with Coal-----Smile at someone with no hair to-day---and thank the good Lord for this day!

    I often wonder if I would do better if I had a dog depending on me to take him/her out for daily walks.

    Tell Coal, that our granddog, Finch, is right with him!

Finch's Vet said last Fall, that Finch was almost 10 lbs over weight. So we reduced his feed, cut down on Treats, took him to the Dog Park, where he can run...with out a slow Senior Citizen on the end of the leash!
This year he is down 7 lbs. ! emoticon

As we all worked to lose weight here this past year, Finch has been the Biggest Loser! (by percentages)
