It seems like this summer has gone on forever. It's been so hot that we've all stayed inside most all day and the dogs haven't had their normal exercise. Last week when we were outside playing I glanced at Tess and she looked fat. I called her to me and felt her ribs and yes, she is fat. Then I checked the other girls and they had all gained some weight. Dr B likes them to have about 1/8" of padding over the ribs and the girls had a lot more than that. It's time to diet.
