I am a Clean, Lean, Cuddle Machine

Among PUGS and PUG pawrents, weight is a common topic of conversation. Rightfully so. We small compact pups DO tend to pack on the pounds if we are not ever diligent. I had to lose 5 pounds a few years back and let me tell you it was not EASY. That is a QUARTER of my total weight!!! Mommy accomplished this by being very careful with my diet in addition to making sure I got some exercise through the day,

What to do. . . what to do. Well in addition to small meals two times a day, I got lots of fruits and vegetables to fill me up and round out my diet. This photo tells the whole story. Those things in front of Molly and myself are what I want to focus on today - the "cakes" from Sunshine the Cat's birthday celebration. No calorie laden cakes for us! Our "slices" consisted of a cantaloupe shell with watermelon ice and a yogurt drizzle. How yummy is THAT????? Oh, I assure you, VERY. It's clever and Oh So TASTY.

Sunshine the Cat had a "cake" of a new wet food she was trying out. It is behind Molly in this photo. For some reason Sunshine did not like it and it was not enough to keep her attention. Hence the mournful stare into the house.

My point is - there are ways to get fruits and vegetables into your pet's diet which are fun and tasty. In the long run a good BABY CARROT (my fave snack) is a much better choice than a high calorie DOG BISCUIT. OMP! Just thinking of that sweet luscious is making my mouth water. . . .

I gotta find Mommy and sit pretty. Hopefully she gets the hint.

And Now for an AFFIRMATION

Noodles, I'm with you on Baby Carrots! So tasty and so much fun to snap in your mouth! I love green beans, too. A good snack and helps us maintain our waistline. :)
