Well, that’s what we tell ourselves anyway. I hope Koa agrees. She has lost one more pound this week, putting her at 77 pounds.
She ate some lettuce yesterday, leftover from my lunch salad. It was a piece of arugula with a light balsamic vinaigrette. I was amazed she actually swallowed it- Brody is a champion vegetable spitter outter. I wouldn’t say she was exceptionally enthused about it, but beggars can’t be choosers.
She even got a little treat this weekend- I made some dog biscuits for an upcoming Baking with Brody post and I felt terribly guilty after he got to eat three in the process of taking the pictures, so she got one too. Dogs don’t seem to be wracked with guilt over diet cheats the way we are. She ate it with no misgivings whatsoever.
Koa also got featured in a LiveScience article this week! Now that I’ve publicly proclaimed her dieting all over the internet, I have no choice but to ensure its success, right? I could not bear the humiliation of being back in a year with a 90 pound lab, saying, “Oops.”
