Summertime is in full swing here, and my grandson has been staying w/us for going on 2 weeks now... :loco2: YES our house is a madhouse at times... Lol

The pups just got their annual checkup, and Willow had her follow up on her spay...

WALTER - my problem child. He now weighs 67.8 POUNDS!!! He's been getting the Cytopoint injections, which have really helped w/his chronic ear infections. He was losing ALL of the hair on his sides, but I've been giving him melatonin at night and I have noticed his hair is coming back. I'm not sure what to do about his weight? He only eats 2 cups of Fromm's a day (beef am/pork pm)... and fruits/veggies as a snack. Should I consider changing his diet?!!

WILLOW - is doing fine of course, she is TINY only weighing 36.4 pounds. Her incision looks great, in fact w/her behavior we believe she doesn't even know that she was spayed. She is still VERY mean to Walter, and I know her hormones are going all over the place :stinkeye:

It stinks because it's been SO dang hot here, I can't walk them anymore... and their daily short walks really helped w/Walter's weight and Willow's madness. UGH... it's so frustrating!!!

Cooper, Jewel (April 27, 2013-May 7, 2022-RIPDaddy's Girl) and (Bentley Oct 2013-Dec 2021)
So pack them up, put them in a car, take them to PetSmart or other air conditioned pet friendly place and walk them all over the store. This is what I do with Jewel and Bentley.

Glad to hear Willow is OK.

Walter is just adding chapter in his second literary work, "How To Make My Mommy Crazy 2." Sending prayers Walter baby recovers quickly.

Great to hear they’re both on track. For Walter it’s more of an exercise issue. Your hands are tied for time being. Cut to 3/4 cups 2x per day n keep the snacks. I still have the issue Duke losing a bit of hair around the collar area. It’s not his food n he’s very healthy. It’s just stress as Nyala hammers him at time. He’s a pest n she gets fed up or just plays too rough. Like yours. We’ve been on her back lately keeping an eye out on her. She knows it too. When they are playing outside she keeps looking at the windows if we’re looking at her lol. His hair is growing back now.

Glad to hear both babies are healthy! And I agree, maybe cut back in food a little. Can you do walks in the morning?

Agree... cut back to 3/4 cup and add green beans as filler.

Fur loss— i used melatonin for awhile but it only helped a little— fish oil really works for Lambeau
