No, 24.4 is not the current temperature in degrees Celsius (well, actually it’s not too far off thanks to unseasonably cool summer weather), it’s HOW MANY POUNDS SIDDHARTHA “THE FAWN BRATWURST” LAMONT WEIGHS! On my!

Yesterday we went to the vet for a regular check-up and I did a double-take when Sid got on the scale as he usually clocks in around 21 to 22 pounds. I reset the scale and had him try again. Still 24.4.

I mentioned to the vet tech that I was confused because I had actually been taking the little potato-with-legs on much longer walks the past week and a half since the weather has been unusually cool for this time of year. She said then he must be putting on muscle. I had to stifle a laugh, and suggested he must have been working specifically on the one muscle that wraps around his mid-section (the PUGNACIOUS TUBEIUS??) as that’s the only area where he’s been “bulking up”. No offense to Sid as it’s not like he gets to determine his eating schedule – if he ever did I think he’d actually become circular and instead of walks would have to go on “rolls”.

ANYWAY, so it looks like we’ll be back to the ol’ tried and true GREEN BEAN DIET for a little while. I’m sure THE FAWN BRATWURST will be thrilled.

    Oh Sid you still look lovely to us. Tubby is a big pug and he weights in at 27 sometimes, 25 is his fighting weight and as he gets older its harder to keep him there. We think at 12 his metabolistm has slowed. but at 25 he really is not at all fat just beefy. Ping is only 17 lbs. The green bean diet sounds like no fun but your Dad just has your best interests at heart.

    Handsome Sid, you look perfect to us and we like our men muscular. Don’t worry about a thing, you’ll be back to peanut butter Wigzis in no time!

    Sid, look at it this way, you have a very large female fandom that you must please at all times. It is a great responsibility so you must do your best to stay in shape. Otherwise you risk losing your “Cool” throne. I know you don’t want that to happen. So keep your chin up and eat what the Pugrent says you must. Then you can go pee on his slippers just to make sure he understands who’s cool and who works for who! : )

    I think there must be something wrong with that scale because you are pugfect, Sid!
