What's Your Number?

Our new vet likes to evaluate the dawgs (probably cats too, but who cares about them) and assign them a rating on a scale of 1 to 10.  The lowest number means the dawg is emaciated and needs a little TLC.  The highest number means the dawg is seriously obese and needs a little less TLC in the food department, but more in the exercise department.  The perfect numbers to receive are a 4 or 5.

Mommy found this chart online to explain the system a little more in detail that corresponds fairly well with Dr. Emily's system.

When Dr. Emily met Jenna for her dew claw problem, she gave Jenna a thorough check up.  The dew claw situation has resolved itself finally by falling off and a new one has begun to grow in.  That's one less thing for Mommy to worry about.  Jenna's official ranking was a 5, but slightly pushing a 6!  What???  The supermodel has lost her title!!!  Say it isn't so!

When Dr. Emily met Hunter, she gave him a detailed check up and declared him a 4!  She said old age doesn't count as a limiting factor on the scale.  Mommy was surprised; she expected a 3 for Hunter.  Daddy refers to Hunter as a Third World Dawg sometimes because Hunter is so skinny compared to his younger days. 

When Dr. Emily met me, I was there because I was sick with my cold.  There was no mention of a rating for me.  [whew]  I wonder what mine would be?  Mommy thinks it would match Jenna's.  My waistline has become more defined this summer with all of my exercising.  Take that Jenna!  

Supermodel title, here I come!
