    Default OMG!!! 120 lb lab! (and he's mine!!!)

    I had Skippy at the vet today for his "pre-surgery" consultation about his tail. I put him on the scale - OMG!!! He weighed 120 lbs!!!!!! I knew he had gained a little weight, but this is rediculous!!! He still doesn't look fat, but I know he needs to lose at least 20 lbs now. This might be why he no longer fits in his doghouse. Oh lah! Now they BOTH need to be on a diet, along with the people in the house. No more snacks here! I have heard people brag that their lab weighed 120 lbs and I was like -"oh yeah - right!", but here is one in living color , and he really does weigh 120 lbs!!! (I'm still in shock)

    He doesn't look like he weighs that much Pat. I have to say I'm surprised. He is so cute.

    Skippy! You're not fat, you're big boned!

    Sorry to hear about the impending diet, Pat. You can do it, Skip!

    Oh wow- Looks like its carrot sticks for skippy boy. ;D

    We had to put Bella on a diet too. She gets heavier in winter from being more
    lazier. So we really have to watch her.

    Raleigh weighed-in at 112 last year ... down to 108 by the summer. We have their annual vet appt. on Monday ... we're hoping for 100, but I'm guessing about 104. Pretty soon we'll have to start calling him The Little Raloo. ;D

    120? Maybe he can use it to his advantage. It is my understanding that the left tackle is the second highest paid player on the field after the quarterback. Does Skippy like football?

    Holy smokes!

    You have shared quite a few pictures of Skippy with us, Pat. I have never noticed that he was that heavy.

    Maybe Skippy's vet is using the same scale my Dr is using?? It is ALWAYS wrong! :P

    It MIGHT be the scales. When I first put him on it registered 85 lbs, which I KNOW was wrong. he hasn't weighed that little since he was 8 months old. So I took him off and zeroed it. He seemed to be sitting quietly in the right spot, and it said 120. He has been weighing 110, and occ. a tad more, so I wasn't extrememely surprised (just shocked) It might be that it's a few pounds off. But he really doesn't fit in his doghouse anymore, and I can't find a large one that is readily available. I bought one at TSC yesterday, thinking it looked bigger than the one we have, at least the opening was bigger, but SU says it's the same size - I have to get it out of the back of the SUV and measure. Also - even if he doen'st look fat, with surgery to both back legs, he needs to keep his weight down.
