Friday Night Wrights: Thanksgiving And The Reufus Diet Edition

Happy Friday!
Bring on The Weekend and
The Beginning of Our Thanksgiving Holiday Celebration!!!
Reuf and I are pleased to have the Mom home to kick off NINE whole days of being together, without factory interruption!!!
We are very excited about the vacay!
We have a lot of things planned... all small things, nothing too terribly exciting... but things we'll do together!!!

For example... The Mom has put Little Reufus on a diet and a new exercise program, because she thinks he's getting a little CHUB.  
You see, the last few months have been a little stressful around here. The weather has also been too hot to allow much intense exercise, and now... with DSL behind us, it is dark when the Mom leaves for the factory and almost dark when she returns.

Doesn't he look a little CHUB to you???

Well anyway... Reuf continues to eat a high cal food for the energetic dog. He needs that to perform, but his portion needs to be decreased... And trying to transition him from 2 cups of puppy food to 1.5 cups of adult food has resulted in an increase of billy goat behavior.
So... The Mom started him on the green beans. She started giving him 1 cup of his Innova with 1/2 to 3/4 cup of green beans, mixed veggies and pumpkin.

At first, he spit all of the veggies onto the floor to eat last... but then the Mom reminded him that he eats the ALL OF OUTDOORS, so he can't really claim a lack of taste for vegetation.
Just saying.
FrEYEday... SkEYEday
The afternoon was mostly cloudy and just a bit gloomy.
This is looking to the south.
One hour later.
Skies are clearing!
And of course... NO RAIN.

Why... Hello.

Close Up Take One.
Close Up Take Two
Rocking the sweet freckle!
Close Up Take Three
I mean, the Mom Photog is everywhere!!!
You would think I'm a Celebrity...
which, of course... I am!!!
[hee hee...]


Please to forgive me while I play a little catch-up with my blog. I've got photos and stories stacking up, and I want to share them all!!!

Life is Precious! Time is a Treasure! And so are YEU!

We all love green beans here (well, maybe not the Phantom), maybe Reufus will change his mind.

Nine days with Mom!!!! How awesome is that - enjoy. And Happy Thanksgiving too!

I think this is further proof Monty and the Reufus are related! Monty is not fond of indoor vegetables, preferring to graze like a goat!

Mom also has time off, but is already lamenting that the weekend went by too quickly!

Hamish & Sophie & Tucker, loves Green Beans, Pumpkin, you name it they love it.
Tell The Mom, Reufus doesn't look chubby, maybe he is just big bones.
Have fun with The mom this week and we always think about you.

I am so glad I found you. My Maddy Jean is eight and looks so much like your older puppy.

And, we don't talk about getting a bit rounder in the middle. Nope, not around here.

A diet? Hee hee! Bleu, you'd better watch out that Reuf doesn't try to steal your food!

Enjoy having The Mom home. My mom is only working two days this week, so I'm looking forward to some extra quality time, too!
