Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter

March 3, 2009


Clayton's girlish young figure is more or less gone. Kaput, in fact! He tipped the scales at 36 pounds the last time we were at the vet and that is a good 5 pounds more than he should weigh. The problem is twofold: first, he is still taking some prednisone, which increases his appetite (if that makes sense at all); and second, Spenser still gets frequent treats. I give Clayton just tiny amounts but still, it all adds up. I know I should be the tough cop and just put him on a diet, but he's fifteen years old eating is his favorite hobby. What's a mother to do?
