Check up time

Droopy here

I went for my yearly vet visit today.

I've gained 7 pounds so I now weigh 54 pounds! Dr. Bell said I could stand to lose a little weight. My eyes look good and my ears look good. Some of my teeth aren't looking so good but then again I'm almost 12 years old. Other than that I got a clean bill of health from Dr. Bell!

Callie is doing well this week. She's pretty pooped out, which isn't that uncommon after her chemo. Her appetite is kinda off kilter this week too. Sometimes she has to be prompted to eat and sometimes she cleans the entire food bowl without a second glance.

Well it's almost dinner time, gotta go annoy momma!

Sniff ya later,
Droopy (and Callie too)


  1. Droopy, glad to hear you got a good clean bill of health. We think you are still looking good for being almost 12. Also, are vet is always telling us we might want to loose a few pounds. Heck what do they know. :) Tell Callie, to take it easy and hope Momma feed you some good dinner. We just got done with our supper. Yum Yum. The Hounddogs

  2. Woof! Woof! Droopy - good to hear you are doing well for being 12. Sending my Golden Thoughts to Callie. Hope your momma is making you delicioys dinner. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  3. Hi Droopy, that is a very impressive vet report for a girl of almost 12! You should be proud of yourself - well you can give some credit to your mom too!
    Don't worry about the weight - we believe it to be a vet issue!
    As long as you are active and having fun and not too many treats you will be fine.
    Thank you for the update on Callie - our mum says humans are the same with chemo - just wipes them out so let her rest.
    We are glad that she is eating some of the time and we know you will be tempting her with all her favourites.

    love and kisses

  4. You are a fine age for sure. But I guess the old diet is in your future because if you don't carry around extra weight it will make your leggies last longer.

    Sending lots of sugar to Callie.


  5. Hey Droopy and Callie, glad to hear you are both doing well. Get some rest, sweet Callie. Sending you both lots of pawsitive thoughts...
