    DefaultHKs vet visit

    Now I had a special subject line all figured out, but I misled you guys with one before.

    The good news. All healed up from her dental surgery. Don't have to make soggy kibble anymore, and Kongs Are In! HK is oing t be real happy at dinner time tonight.

    She has dropped a pound to 63. We got such nice praise for holding the weight down, and encouragement to continue on the reduced intake. Lots of good comments on muscle tone, heart, and respiration. Got told we are getting her plenty of activity and exercise, just have to control the calorie intake. She is on the small side and just because she wants to eat like a healthy 90 pound male, doesn't mean that she should.

    Regarding her behavior changes at 10 months, tendency to be interested in cuddling, and in general just being calmer and less demanding. Well, according to the vet, she is undergoing a severe case of early FALSE maturing. She assured me that this was a temporary illness. She would enter a rebelious stage before too long and this medical abnormality would be a distant memory. No treatment is required.

    I asked if she was sure about the FALSE maturity. I told her I was concerned because we took in a stray back in the 70s with swollen breasts and h evet we took kher to assured us that it was the result of a false pregnancy and they would reduce in size in a few weeks. We took the 6 FALSE puppies to him 3 days later to have them checked out. DUH! <<--- TRUE STORY!

    LMBO at the false maturity! ;D Enjoy it while you can, puppyhood is still there, hiding, waiting to attack after you have been lulled into a false sense of security.

    Glad that she is all healed up.
