Let me first address “the elephant in the room.” The fact is I am a thick chick. And I come from a long line of thick chicks. As far back as I can remember, we have all been thick. My mother, her mother and her mother’s mother have all been thick.
I thought that, when I was growing up, I was going to break the “thick chick curse,” but as you can see. I didn’t. I dreamed of having long legs and looking like Sharon Stone, but even though I am beautiful like her, my legs just never grew.
When the rescue wagon rolled around, the rescue lady got out her tape measure and measured my legs. I could have told her they are 4″, but she measured anyway. I am 2′ wide, 3′ long and I weighed in at 52 lbs.
Another small problem is my neck is thick. When the rescue lady got ready to go, she put a new collar around my neck and walked off, thinking I was trotting behind her. She sure was shocked when she looked back and saw me laying down in the same spot. Having a neck bigger than my head seemed to be the problem.
I am 3 years old and I love to eat. I think meal time and treat time are the best times for me. I FaceTimed Dr. Larsen, so she could prepare her lap for me. She said she completely understood my “thick chick struggles” and the fact that it’s hard for a short gal to lose weight.
I started medicated baths yesterday and I had some fatty acids, but I had to draw the line when it came to that antibiotic in a pill pocket. The pill pocket was great as a snack, but I sent that antibiotic flying across the room. Put that medicine in some fried chicken and we’ll talk.
Be sure to watch my journey through rescue and get ready to see the new me in the future. I believe if cauliflower can somehow become pizza, I can do anything.
6/3/22 Update: Don’t assume when you’re invited to visit Hollywood Feed it means a new bed, toys and treats. For me, it was another medicated bath!
I have been bathed, scrubbed, defoliated and exfoliated in places the sun never shines. I’ve had more spa days for my skin this past week, than I’ve had in my entire life.
Today, I leave for the vet clinic to sit in Dr. Larsen’s lap. She is going to say I am clean enough and give me some treats!
