Doggy style!! Our vet is doing a “Biggest Loser” competition so we decided that this would be the perfect incentive to buff Maddux up. As you may recall from previous posts, Maddux is overweight. By overweight, I mean he has like 40+ lbs. to lose. We have been scolded multiple times by our vet, and considering how much of a health and exercise nut I am, I’m embarrassed that poor Maddux is in such bad shape. Not to make excuses, but it’s hard to exercise him because of his bum leg, and it’s kind of a pain to go buy him special diet food. Riley can’t afford to lose weight, so he eats regular food. When we have a foster dog, we use the food that GBHS provides. Then with Maddux on special diet food, we have to deal with 3 different kinds of dog food! This is craziness. Oh well, I guess we have to do what we have to do. Now a competition is involved and, well, Matt and I do not tolerate losing well. We (uhh, I mean, Maddux) must win this competition! The official start date is 11/15. We took him for his starting weigh-in on Saturday…96.4 lbs…and got his diet food and diet snacks. I’ll try and post regualr updates of his progress. We have quite the feat ahead of us. Go Maddux Go!!
