Razz I bet you look at him and are like "oh Storm, did you really do that?!" LOL! Those squirrels that come around your yard better watch their butts!

Yay, for the weight loss!! He looks amazing!! Mya is down to 47lbs, but she doesn't look that thin to me. Definitely no more weight loss for her! I think she actually should gain a pound or two now scratch

Tara said this happened when he topped out at about 140 lbs and says, 'I wanna know he got his fat ass moving that fast to catch a cat and a chicken!' lol!

Storm was probably a prime example of a run away train at 140 lbs.

Plus no wonder I like Storm the chicken thief puts him in the same company with Adobo. Her ex owner was ready to shoot her for chicken thieving.

I remember when I met him for the first time...he tried to chase Ginger around a little in my back yard...Jenn was there....when he started running, Jenn and I looked at each other and started laughing! We couldn't help it! But yes, he would body check me and if he hit my bad knee just right without me expecting it, he could make it buckle.

If we put Storm and Adobo together near chicken, that could be sight!

Yay for Storm! And it's not his fault about the cat and chicken - any of our dogs would happily do the same! The difference is he has a responsible owner now! Smile

I'm not sure what I did differently since January 20 (when I last weighed him, 76.7 lbs), but I took him to get his weight checked today, and I had to weigh him 3 times, and make sure the scale was zeroed out.

74.2 lbs

sunny

I think I might give him just a tad more food...



I also weighed Ginger and she has also lost 1.5 lbs so it's at least consistent with her too.

Could it be the colder temps? My pack always needs more calories in the winter, every winter I have to increase their food portions otherwise they start losing weight. Then I scale back to normal portions when warmer weather starts in spring.

The last weekend in January through this past weekend, we haven't done much as far hiking/snowshoeing, and they've been pretty mellow at home. We've taken them to do the dog park on occasion to offset some of the inactivity, but we usually only hang out no more than an hour whereas hiking is several hours. So if anything, I expected no change in their weight.

Tonight, Storm got a meaty beef bone and Ginger got a Himalayan chew Smile

Weight check for Storm yesterday and he's still holding 74.2 lbs bounce

His thyroid meds are given only once every 4 days and soon to be once a week.

Since Storm gets his thyroid meds only once a week now, I kind of forgot after the second week...oh well...so now he's officially COMPLETELY OFF thyroid meds! WOO HOO! And he's still holding his weight steady at 74-75 lbs. sunny

Even through this hot, long summer with low activity, Storm has managed to drop just a couple more lbs....he weighed in last Friday at 71.4 lbs. Lately, I've been able to see his last rib looking at him from his side when we're out walking and I asked Dr.M if I need to increase his food just a tad, but she said, 'He's picture perfect and handsome and healthy!'

I love you
