Chunky monkey

Pepper got his weekly bath today and, much to my dismay, I realized his belly is getting chubby! Yep, when we wet him down it was there, plain as day, a round belly.

We weighed him and, sure enough, he's gained 2 lbs since August. It's my fault entirely. I've been too generous with his treats and I know it.

So, now our chunky monkey is on a diet. Here's a pic of him after his bath. All that hair was hiding his little treat belly.

Pepper looks so cute! Treat belly or no treat belly. I love his colors! He looks like he silvered up quite a bit since your avatar picture, is that true? He really is a handsome boy.

uh oh.... I like treats too, maybe I just need fur on my belly!

A good friend who is always batting weight with her corgis, takes and mixes in puffed wheat and green beans in her dogs food. It might help!

Yes, he's turning blue/white. Every week we see more of his coat turning color. When we got him in May he was black/white.

Thanks - we think he's a cutie, too!

Poornima - thank you!

Amanda - thank you for the suggestion. I'll have to try that if cutting back his treats doesn't do the trick. By the way, if I could I'd be wearing fur on my belly, too. Pepper isn't the only one getting extra treats around here.

He is beautiful!!!! Belly and all!! You could try to find a good treat that they like, - like green beans - and make that their treats so they are getting some good nutrition and filling up on the good stuff!

I love the name Pepper. I had a dog that I love dearly named Pepper. When I got my Squirt, I came soooo close to renaming her Pepper, but it just didn't fit. Plus Squirt answered so well to her name, that I decided not to change it even though Squirt wouldn't be my name of choice.
