My trip to the V-E-T

Woof woof everyone!

I hope everyone is starting to recover from all the food we have eaten the past few weeks- Mum keeps complaining about how much she has eaten, but she isn't stopping. 

But me and Sampson had to go to the V-E-T (Daisy-Boo didn't need to go, humph!) I needed my annual booster injection-owie, and Mum took Sampson for a weight check.
He weighed in at 51.5 kg (114lbs) and he turned 8 months on Christmas day, he's a bit lankier than some Danes at his age, but we measured him at 35. 5"inches so he's got space to bulk out!

Anyway..the V-E-T told mum I was F-A-T and I have to go on a diet...which means no BARF food for me for a I'm on this prescription food..


and its rubbish!!! :( But Mum says once I've lost (lets face it ALOT ) of weight, I'm allowed back on my BARF diet. 
Along with my prescription food I get to do this thing called Hydrotherapy- which I LOVE! 
At first it was scary- Mum had to walk in and out of the big bath box with me to show me it wasn't scary, but then when I was a brave boy standing in the box by myself it started to fill up with water- like a bath!

Once I was happy in the bath box, something even scarier happened, the floor started MOVING! It was so strange, but mum was in front of me telling me I had to keep walking and it wouldn't be so frighting. 
But once I got the hang of it, I was loving it, I love water as it it and this was like a bath- but I was running in it.
The lady said I was such a good boy for adjusting to it so well. Now I'm on my diet (boo) I get to go to this Hydrotherapy EVERY WEEK. Yaaay!

Mum even made a video of my adventure!!
She couldn't embed it onto the blog so there's no thumbnail...but the link is here! -----> 

I'm so excited for next week. 


P.S Daisy Boo wanted to say Hi, she feels like she hasn't been mentioned lately (plus mum made her wear a stupid scarf!) 


  1. Fat???? Where??? You look awesome to us. Our friend Mango goes for that hydrotherapy too, he seems to enjoy it as well, but he gets lots of cheerios to reward him for walking.

    Hi Daisy Boo - cute scarf:)

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  2. Hi Everybuddy, fat schmatt. You look fine to us. The hydro thingy looks pretty cool though. Daisy Boo you do look sweet in that scarfe. Sampson sounds like he will be a good solid boy. Happy New Year to all. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  3. Hi, thanks for stopping by our blog. We love to meet new dogs.

    We totally sympathise about the diet thing. Maybe you can talk your mum into putting a few extra vegies with that kibble. I get called kegs sometimes because SHE says I look like a keg on legs.....not very nice, is it?

    Look forward to hearing about your adventures in 2012.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  17. Bad luck Dants..normally with aqua aerobics you can cheat since no one can see you underwater..unfortunately with that glass tank all round you humans are watching every paw..that 'prescription diet' dog food doesn't look that yummy eh? Love the second photo of the diet food.. your face! heehee How's the diet going?
