Having fun

I went to the vet yesterday for the new tests. We had to wait for more than an hour because he had an emergency. Finally he came and took my blood. While the tests were running he checked me. Guess what? I lost almost 2 more pounds! He was very happy but told my mom that I need to lose another 2. Another good sign was that I did not drool at all and the hair is growing behind my ears. Then his assistant brought the results, he reviewed them and he said that everything was very good. My cholesterol level is normal! The thyroid test will take more time but he is feeling very optimistic about it. He told my mom to continue with the low fat food and the meds until the next week when we get the results. Looks like everything is going to be ok (we hope so!)
When we came home I had my breakfast which I had like in 15 seconds because I was really hungry. Then I had a good time playing with Spike. I am going to miss him when my auntie goes back to Saltillo next monday.
Patriots 16-0! We could not watch the game because the satellite signal was down but we watched the highlights later. We don't know what is next but sure they set a good record!
I hope you all are having a great weekend!
Have a good night

Wow, you two were having a great time playing!!!

Congratulations on losing weight!! It's sure hard to do, I know that! Tell your mom to try adding in green beans, and taking away more dry food. The green beans will help fill you up, but not add a lot of calories! That's what my diet has been. And it worked for me!

We are sure glad that things are looking good. Mom put me on a diet a few months ago too. The vet told her that I had no waist. Can you believe that. I think it was because I was sitting down and I have a heavy coat..
Yepper we watched the Patriots game. It was a good one.. Mom and Dad are Packer fans but good luck in the playoffs...

Playing with Spike looked like a lot of fun! All that running around with him probably helped you lose some of that weight. Maybe you can convince your mom to let him stay until you get to the weight the vet wants you at. Glad the blood tests came back ok.
