Heavy D's New Haircut

This is a big day for our little girl, Delilah, who N lovingly calls Heavy D. She got a beautiful new haircut yesterday! She is stylin'

You see, 2 weeks ago, when she still looked like this...

...her vet said that at a whopping 87 pounds, Heavy needed to go on a diet. We know that she gets lots of treats, always gets a little hand out if she waits patiently at her food bowl, but has also gone on more walks in the last year (thanks to my pregnancy and N's persistence) then she has in her whole life. We were a little surprised with the vet's unhappiness about her weight. She got hit by a car when she was a puppy and had to have a piece of her hip removed, so any additional weight on the bad hip could mean bad news for her in the future. So when she came home from the groomer yesterday, I was convinced that they shaved about 10 pounds off of her with her fur! She looks so little and healthy! I would almost like to go back to the vet for a re-weigh, but they would probably charge us $50 just for walking in the door! So her treats have started again after almost 2 weeks with very few, if any at all. She is walking around the house strutting her stuff, that's for sure. She knows she looks good!
