Slim Down with Stanzie

If you recall, last month, the vet suggested that Stanzie could drop a couple of pounds.
68 lbs is her goal.
Today, she proudly marched into the vet clinic and jumped on the scale.
The crowd cheered at Stanzie's success in the right direction!

Stanzie would like to share her weight loss secrets:

Chase more squirrels.

Eat low calorie snacks, like these Good Buddy Pumpkin-Apple treats from Castor & Pollux.
The company is right here in Oregon, just down the road!
We got ours shipped right to our door from

They are big round treats.
So, if you break them in half and eat half now and the other half later.
Only 10 calories/ for half! 

Moderation is the key......WYATT!

Supplement those cravings with fresh fruits and vegetables.

Look! My collar is baggy...I'm a new size!!

(I'm trying to reach my goal by my 13th birthday in December!)


  1. Slow and steady is a good way for weight loss. You are doing great!

  2. Way to go Stanzie, fruits, vegies and squirrel chasing always works. Just avoid the DIET word, that means less food, I Know, Been There. we are pulling for you to get there!

  3. WooooHooooo!!! Way to go gurl!!!! I like treaties of any kind!! Ma likes the Zuke's Skinny Bakes Banana ones, and she also likes the Wellness mini bites that are only 3 cal a treatie! She likes those for small goodies for when I give something up I'm not suppose to have...which is ALOT...☺
    Anyhu, good job gurl!! I STILL have 5 lbs to go...I'm kinda stuck on a plateau and Ma thinks Gpa isn't helpin' (if you know what I mean....)

  10. Well done Stanzie. But I am worried - with the present dietary regime, if you catch a squirrel, will you be allowed to eat it?

  18. Ha ha! Brilliant! Wel done Stanzie and good luck for this week's efforts. Ros and Oscar

  19. Pawsome congratulations cos, we all know about those extra pounds.

    UNKNOWN to my mum and dad, giving me a teefy cleaning chew every day is thought to have added to my extra weight. Seems there were as many calories in one chewy teef chew as there were in a whole Mars Bar. Now who would have known that.. I'm gonna get me a weight chart too. LUV'S and well done.Cat Flap Cavalier X
