Sorry I haven't been on for a while. Been busy.

Anyway...
Cookie is not overweight anymore. Last year, she weighed 94 pounds.
I put her on a diet and now she weighs 72 pounds.
My grandmother thought that Cookie was malnourished after this, so she threatened to take Cookie away.
I took Cookie to the vet to get a professional opinion on her weight. The vet said that Cookie is healthy and she's not starved, but she personally thinks that Cookie could use 4 or so more pounds. But it won't hurt Cookie to keep her at her current weight.
She said to feed half a cup more dog food. Everyone was satisfied with the report.
She also gave us a suppliment to sprinkle over Cookie's daily meals that helps keep her at the right weight, helps her arthritis, and helps her digestion process.


(I copied this post from another forum because I'm too lazy to retype it.)

How did you get the weight off her? I feel like I'm starving my male and he hasn't lost an ounce.

It took a long time.


I'll get that picture sometime between now and tomorrow. My camera's hiding right now.
