Yogurt, green salad with ground pork, and small dog

Saturday, February 01, 2020

I got lots of compliments today at work about my new hair, and a couple of co-workers commented that it looks like I am losing weight. I am thinking that it maybe shows a little in my face, but when you are over 270 pounds, it is going to take a while to make a big visual difference. But that's okay, it's part of the journey.

BLD likes carrots and salad. I have tried to explain to him that dogs only eat grass when they are sick, but he doesn't care, and he hoovers up any lettuce I drop while I'm chopping. He's the world's loudest Roomba. Then he perches on the back of the futon, like a parrot, carefully watching for any escaped morsel of salad, or a wayward bit of protein. He never barks or whines, just stares at me with those huge liquid eyes, silently suffering from starvation, wasting away before my eyes as I spoon up my yogurt. I always remind him that there's Life Source Bits in his bowl, but we've been over that before. Finally at the end, I surrender the empty yogurt container to be scoured clean with his oddly raspy tongue. Thus we are both content at the end of the meal.

    Oh, your fur baby sounds like mine. If it's for humans, she wants it! LOL. And they certainly can put on the most pathetic pleading face EVER!

    My dog gets the yogurt container when I’m done. He also likes to clean every dish. Can’t eat carrots or apples without having to share with him, even tho he’s only got 4 teeth left! Spoiled dog but I do so love him! emoticon emoticon
