This weeks exercise was done with the SS new toy they got for Christmas. Thanks to Oz The Terrier for their great review of the puller toy and for the giveaway that we happened to win. The puller toy comes as a two pack (it should be a three pack for my gang, lol). I’m so glad it was a two pack because each dog wanted it so I tossed it they all ran for it one grabbed it and then I threw the other one and one of them got that one. They would bring them back to me and I would repeat the toss and they all ran out and the one who didn’t get to grab one would chase the others around trying to get theirs. They really love this toy. Gambler will run, run, run with it in his mouth. Great exercise too for sure.
Here’s how the gang did with their resolutions.
Nellie- Big epic fail. We were doing good during the spring and summer months, I even got 8# off of Nellie and then fall/winter came and she went back to running off and eating all the old dead animal carcass she could find and I believe she gained back her 8# plus some. She is by no means fit, she is a tella tubby to be exact. We need to get back on track in 2015 and get that weight off and keep it off.
Glory- She did keep exercising, but she also did gain a few pounds that we do need to get off now that we know she isn’t having puppies. We fed her extra thinking she was having puppies so she gained some excess weight.
Gambler- We wanted to try and bulk up Gambler as he is thin. We added extra calories but he ran so much this summer he didn’t put any weight on. He maintained until it was time to go hunting this fall. My friends dog couldn’t hunt so he borrowed Gambler for hunting. He was hunting him hard each day, duck hunting in the morning and pheasant hunting in the afternoon. I sent along his pro plan premium performance dog food which has more calories for working dogs but I failed as a owner to tell him to feed him more if he was hunting him hard. He ended up loosing 7#. When he did give him extra food because he thought on his own he should have more calories Gambler just left the food in his bowl. We finally got the weight back on him and still working on having him gain a few more.
This next year we will continue our hunt test training and keeping fit and hopefully will have good news and a skinny Nellie at the end of next year.
