I had to put Taz in the dog hotel for a few days while I’m out of town and it was really sad to say goodbye. It’s been less than two months since I’ve had him but I’m so used to him now that my house is very lonely without that big, lovable fatty.
We went on a really long walk last night, so Taz’s treat was a cool hose-down. And he loves getting dried off.
Almost caused a car accident while walking Taz because they were looking at him instead of the road.
Weigh in #2
Taz lost 10 pounds since the last weigh in 3 weeks ago. He’s now down to 134.1 pounds, which is still heavier than I am. Steve (therapist) at NAMC told us that 1 pound of weight for a dog is equal to around 12 pounds for a human. Wow! Total weight loss to date: 31 pounds!
Lunch break means an excited Taz.
I've had Taz for 1 month!
And I couldn’t be happier. He’s awesome!
No hydro-therapy today. It’s a bummer but the treadmill is broken. I’ll still try to weigh Taz, though.
Taz isn’t the only one.
That is a FAT dog!– Guy driving by in car.
Taz threw up 3 times again yesterday. Note: don’t give a dog really cold water right after a walk. We’re going to NAMC tomorrow for the first session of underwater treadmill therapy! Weigh in tomorrow. Stay tuned. He’s still really cute.
Nothing like vacuuming up 3 bags of dog hair.
Well, Taz just ate a chicken bone and threw it up on the carpet no less. First real trial of dog ownership.
Is she pregnant?– Little girl I met on a walk
Taz can scratch his mouth with his back leg. I’ve never seen him do that...– Me
Taz is getting so excitable and energetic that he wants to wrestle but then gets all twisted up and hurts himself (not bad) from not being able to un-twist himself. He’s still really fat.
Had another person ask me about Taz. “What kind of dog is that?” Taz is too fat to tell he’s just a chocolate lab.
Taz has to loose at least 35 more pounds in order to get his teeth cleaned (he has to go under general anesthesia to do this). In the meantime, I’ve been giving him dental bones. He eats them super fast then looks at me with a puppy dog look like “Can I have another one, please?” It’s so hard to say no.
