Nearly a year has passed since Qannik was ordered to lose weight – and yesterday was another Q-Tip weigh in and vet visit.
Long-time readers will remember that this time last year, Q-Tip surprised us all when he stepped on the scales and weighed 64.5 pounds (29.3 kg). He immediately went on the green bean diet (reducing the quantity of food and replacing it with green beans to reduce caloric intake). He slowly and steadily lost the weight. A few months ago, we eliminated the green beans. So the question at yesterday’s vet visit – did he keep the weight off?
Hu-Dad tries to spend some one-on-one time with each member of The Herd daily. So, yes, Q-Tip’s special time every day with Hu-Dad is reading on their couch. Ok, Q might be snoring while Hu-Dad is reading, but that still counts.
So back to the vet visit . . . the scales topped out at 57 lbs which got a passing grade from our vet. Q can honestly say he just looks fluffy. And everything else appeared healthy and normal, so we are celebrating.
