Stupid vet!

November 3, 2006

Man, I hate the vet. We went to see him, because I've got an ear infection. I've got one pretty pink ear and a nasty red one, fortunately it doesn't itch that bad. No idea how I got it, my ears are being cleaned regularly (I hate that!). The Ones Who Feed Me Every Day say that my ear even stinks. I got some ear drops -which I have to use every day, for ten days, dammit-, so it'll be over soon. The ear infection wasn't even the major problem; the vet told me that I'm a bit too fat and that I have to be put on a diet. The brutality!

I have to lose 2,5 kg (that's about 5.5 lbs) within a couple of weeks. Can you believe that?!?
The vet said that I have to get less snacks and do more exercising. That doesn't sound too bad, but he also told me that the following activities are not being considered as exercising:

- Eating
- Sleeping
- Begging for food
- Chewing on [fill in something edible or non-edible]
- Dreaming while making 'hmmmm-hmmmm-hmmm'-sounds
- Licking the couch (yeah, I do that...)

That does make it quite hard. Take a look at the picture below, do I look like a 15,3 kg (about 33.7 lbs) dog to you? I know that's quite a lot of weight for a Pug, but I'm large and I've got heavy bones!

I'm not fat, I've got big bones!

So when I sound a bit grumpy or cranky during the next few weeks, it's because of my diet... Grmbwl!

    We think you look very fit Django. And we also disagree with the vet, eating, begging for food, and licking the couch should definitely be considered excercise.

    Django, you are a fine Pug. You don\\\\\\\'t need to lose any weight! That Dr. is whack. I get ear infections a lot too. The Woman has to clean my ears at least twice a week, so I feel your pain. BTW - your code thing is really annoying and the reason I don\'t leave comments. I can never tell the difference between o, O and 0, and I have to enter the code 5 or more times.

    Thanks for letting me know about the code Norman, I'll look into it. Because of the large amount of spam I received, I just had to set up a captcha, but I'll see if I can change it... The diet isn't that bad, I can still eat a lot that I would usually do. I already lost 0,5 kg/ 1 lbs ;)
