|I'm guarding it, and NO I'm not going to climb up there and eat them all when you turn your back. How dare you accuse me of something so sordid!|

Unfortunately I was only allowed 2 pieces of pasta, because according to Mom I'm getting too thick again. I was holding my weight really well for a while, then Mom started giving me bully sticks daily or every other day. We didn't know, but bully sticks contain 5 to 35 calories per inch! That's a lot when you're only 9lbs. So now I only get bullies when I'm crated. My food also got cut back, and I'm only getting Cheerios for training treats. Since I only have maybe 6-10oz to loose, it's coming off very well. I should be back to ideal by the end of the week.

Dachshund Mommy: I swear, Nola is consistently the most inconsistent weight. Boston's always too thin (nothing wrong with her, just crazy active with a high metabolism coupled with a nervous personality), Auggie and Phoenix hold their weight well, and Nola is usually either too thin or too fat. This last month or two she's been holding her ideal weight great, and I was hopefully that since's she's fully mature now she'd level out in her weight. Since she was doing so well, and her extra thickness is coming off nicely, I'm hoping this was just a minor setback, and that cutting out her bullies except when she's crated will do the trick. Fingers crossed!
Mom's very proud, because after weeks and weeks of counter conditioning, and months of hard work, my nails are finally back to a manageable length! I used to hate (I'm talking struggling, whining, kicking) having my feet handled, much less my nails clipped. After a lot of work on Mom's part, she conditioned me to tolerating nail trimmings. My quicks had gotten really long, so Mom had to cut my nails every week (sometimes twice a week) for over 2 months before they got to the length they are. The don't click on the tile, they don't touch the floor, and my feet aren't splayed anymore! Mom just bought a nail grinder off eBay so she can keep them nice and short. The back ones still need work, but we're getting there.

Hope y'all had a good weekend, too!
