I think my butt gettin big!

So, if you've been following Madison's weight gain chart, you might have noticed that she lagged for a few weeks, which might have been the result of being off her food for a couple days and fighting an eye infection. She was just out of sorts.

The outcome was that her vet gave orders for H-Mom to increase her food from 1-1/2 cups of Wellness/Canidae mix in the morning and again in the evening, to a full 2 cups twice a day. Not only is she growing fast, but she gets a great deal more rigorous exercise than most dogs, and absolutely more than most condo-dogs.

With the exception of a few 'slow' days, Madison has been eating every last kibble. Of course, in a very lady-like manner. No scarfing, snarfing or chowing down. Just quietly, kibble by kibble. And still enjoying liberal snacks - biscuits, dried sweet potato wrapped with duck, blueberry crunchies, a fresh beef marrow bone every few days and a sprinkling of ZEN dog treats.

And now she seems to be growing in front of everyone's eyes.

And MADISON wants to know, "Do you think my BUTT looks big?"

And how come H-Mom keeps humming the Nelly song, "It's gettin hot in here ..."

How inappropriate. Talk about making a girl paranoid. Or something. Now she is talking about having Madison audition for a part in the following music video: the "big butt" part. They could cast a Giant Schnauzer to dance in front of a mirror, suspiciously eying the offending body part.

Madison, at our house we prefer "curvy" to big when it comes to characterizing butts!


Dog Dad told us a long time ago, never ever answer that question if a lady dog asks it. What ever you say, the answer will be wrong.

So instead we will say that it is good to hear you are over your eye infection.

You are just a growing girl. When I was still growing I ate 8 cups of kibbles each and every day, but now I only get 6 (well, plus lots of cookies given what a good boy I am).

We took a straw poll here in GooberStan, and both Stella & I, our cat Merv, and our girl think your booty is looking just fine... maybe even more than fine. You still have growing to do, girlie!

That was a nice cover of Nelly's song. We liked the igloo.

Goober love & smooches,

Fuzzbutt, similar to Airedale butts. That means cherce, as Spencer Tracy once said.
