I want to welcome a new family member. Our new nephew dog and Pink and Rick’s cousin. Introducing… Gus!
Gus is a Vizsla Puppy. Eventually, he will be a bird dog, but right now he just spends his days looking like an old man and eating sticks.
Pink and Rick met Gus for the first time over Easter Weekend. We weren’t sure how it would go, because… I didn’t want Gus to get eaten.
You see, Rick is still a little chunky. Every time we take him anywhere people say, “Whoa, Rick.” And he pretty much eats everything. So, I got a little scared he would look at Gus and see a copper colored chew toy.
Luckily, all they did was sniff each other. But, I think Rick licked his lips.
Everyone’s reaction made us think, “how much does Rick weigh?” Well, we placed bets and whoever was closest… would have their odds forever in Rick’s favor (Hunger Games, anyone? Let’s just hope Rick never goes to the Hunger Games. I don’t think he’d last past the cornucopia).
Take a guess, how much do you think Rick weighs?
I gave him the benefit of the doubt and guessed 98 pounds.
Drum roll… he weighs in at 107. My sister Beth guessed it exactly! She’s a dog weight whisperer.
Rick’s climb into triple digits means he has to go on a diet– even though he didn’t eat Gus. He probably thought Gus would be too much work for too little meat. I get like that with crab.
Did you weigh any of your pets/family members this Easter?!?
