A Dogie For #Caturday

Sweetie PieSweetie Pie Turner, here. MomGoth is my mom’s daughter, but I’ve adopted her as my MomGoth, since she feeds me in the morning. She also puts out my ration of food for the day, although every once in a while Mom sneaks me a little extra! ~giggle~ I’m supposed to be on a diet, though, so Mom is usually “good” about holding me to my ration — if you can call that GOOD!

MomGoth and I have been having fun with my impressions. Sometimes we disagree on them, though. Here I am, on MomGoth’s chair. I told her I was supposed to be her with her legs crossed.

SPhogtiedShe said I look more like a dogie. I said, “I do not now nor will I ever look like a canine!” She said, “Not a DOGGIE, a DOGIE! A motherless calf. As in ‘Get along, little dogie.’ Don’t you speak Amer’can?” I said, “I have a Mom, thank you, and I am no sort of a doggie, let alone a long one. And it’s called a Dachshund. Don’t you speak German?”

She jumped up and down a few times, which is always fun because it feels like an earthquake, and did HER impression of The Incredible Hulk, only red instead of green. It was highly amusing.

In other news, we saw a chipmunk this morning! We don’t see many of them, because the squirrels hog all the bird food, so we were very happy.

      LOL! “Drinking a beer is like eating seven slices of bread”? SERIOUSLY? I guess there’s a reason they call it “stout.”

    ‘Diet’ originally meant ‘way of life,’ in which case I don’t mind being on a diet.

    Unfortunately, if you don’t have the right metabolism, and have food available, you’re going to be the size most of your female relatives who don’t watch every bite are. Or worse.

    I only function reasonably well on a low carb diet, so I stick to that most of the time. Unfortunately, the goodies are on the wrong side of that, and even if you watch the kind of food you eat, if the quantities start going up, my little Fat Manager, a very successful guy at his job, will store some away for the winter that probably won’t come.

    And since I can’t exercise, and am not allowed to get my heart rate over 92 beats per minute, I don’t have that way of using up some of the stores.

    If I ever get well, I swear I’m going to hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine, which is the only guaranteed way of losing weight that I know of that keeps it off. You will end up looking very odd – powerful leg muscles, and skinny arms, but you won’t be fat.

    Still, I’d do it in a minute if I could!

    I’ll take Sweetie with me. Does she like walking on a leash?

    PS I HAVE a Gravatar – I don’t know why it doesn’t show up sometimes.

      Sweetie Pie walks on a leash the way a side of bacon would walk on a leash. In other words, if you have the muscle power, you can drag her, but that’s about it.

      I wondered about your Gravatar. The internet is a strange and puzzling thing, isn’t it?

      If you want to hike the Appalachian Trail, you MUST read Bill Bryson’s A WALK IN THE WOODS. ๐Ÿ˜€
