Billy's old vet used to remark on the size of his head every time we went in. I've seen bigger but there's no denying that it's definitely a pretty solid piece of anatomy! As a result he always seems to be on the skinny side in comparison to the other pooches and on our first few vet visits I made a point of asking whether he needed fattening up a bit.
Eventually I got used to his proportions. However, I've been keeping an eye on him since I got back and have come to the conclusion that I'm not being paranoid and he definitely lost some weight while I was gone. I don't believe for a second that he wasn't wolfing down every morsel he could get his paws on as he's not the pining type. So I'm wondering whether it's maybe that when I'm around he gets so much extra chicken and treats when we're training, as well as bonus veggies - sweet potato and carrots are favorites. Whatever the reason, as he won't be getting much in the way of special snacks this week (yesterday's work day started at 4:30am and I didn't finish up until 12:15am) Billy gets to live the dream for a little while.
What do you say to extra-large dinner Bilbo?
