Latest Weigh In!

Stanley had his first weigh in since his initial vet check up yesterday morning! Good news!

you can see he's getting narrower!

Weight: 113.5 lbs (-1.8 lbs!)
Neck: 26" (-2)
Chest: 41" (-1)
Waist: 37.5" (-.5)

(of course, his dad INSISTS that the scale is wrong and that he lost more weight...)

don't be fooled by the tongue! even the vet's treats were not up to his standards...

I've been concerned about his belligerent walking behavior in the last week...sitting down and refusing to go further. I don't want to push him to the point that he gets hurt, but his amazing ability to jump up and run home as soon as I give in leaves me suspicious of his sitting-down motives! But last night he did a HUGE walk for him - up to the corner, over two blocks, down the block and home! Our house is on skinny blocks across, but it's a big accomplishment for him!


  1. You go Stanley!!! What a sweet looking elkhound you are. We will be watching your progress - Daisy wants to go on a walking date with you :).

  2. Thanks Daisy, but I am still not so excited about walking. It seems great until I get to the neighbors house...but my mom and dad are working on making me more excited about it. I"m skeptical, but we'll see....
