Aren't I cute?
Mom says I may be the dumbest animal she has ever had the pleasure to live with. I thought I was pretty smart? I mean how many 11-month old puppies do you know that can find an open 50-pound bag of dog food and eat 1/4 his weight in food?
I mean, I know I didn't look so good masquerading as a pregnant goat. (At least, that's what mom SAID I looked like.) But, Dude! How often does a puppy get to eat 16 pounds of food at one time!
I felt kind of bad I got the Teen in trouble, but that didn't last very long.
It really sucked when I started throwing up, though.
The first time wasn't, much, but then it was again, and again.
Mom poked me in the belly and couldn't believe how hard it was - she said it was like a drum. Ummm, I'm not sure what explode means, but she used that word a lot.
Then, the best part? I got to go see my OTHER favorite people. The gang over at Anderson Lakes Vet - they know how to treat a puppy. Well, except when they gave me that drink and it made me throw up some more. Then some more. Then even more. But hey! I'm a Lab, we don't hold grudges.
Those ladies at Anderson put me on a platform when I got there and exclaimed 65!!! 65 pounds! (I don't know what the big deal is - just last week they put me on it and exclaimed 57 - that's not so much!) Then they gave me that drink, and you know what happened after that.
Mom even left me there to have lots of fun. A guy can only take so much petting, you know.
The Teen had to come and pick me up at 6:30, he wasn't very happy about it, but Dude!
Worst part about the whole day? I didn't get any dinner.
You just know he's going to wake up ravenous tomorrow because, hey, he didn't get dinner last night!
That sounds like a fun day!! Can I come over and have the leftover 34 pounds of food?
(also not the sharpest knife in the drawer!)
That sounds like the Best. Day. Ever. Lots of food AND a trip to Anderson Lakes! Wish I was you.
He must have looked like a boa constricter that had just eaten a small person!!! OMG!!!!
You know, too, that he'd do it again in a heartbeat!
AHAHAAHAHAHAHA>.... those dang dogs!
Super funny post!
I'm not your kind, but if you like food, try to learn to open the fridge. Or can't your kind learn that?
