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.
