Here he is. In all his glory. Even Bogart is in the Christmas spirit! OK, maybe not. Maybe his weird owner made him wear it. But you have to admit, he is pretty darn cute 🙂 Even though his beard is crooked. Oh well. I can’t win them all. You have no idea how much adjusting, making kissy noises, and bribing with treats this took.  Fat free treats of course. Didn’t want to mess up his diet!

For those of you who don’t know, Bogart was a bit overweight last time I took him to the vet (about mid July). So he has been on a strict diet for the past 4-5 months now. He has been on special diet food, only eating 1 cup a day. This has really paid off. He has lost a total of 7 lbs.! I have to admit, it has not been easy. Being on this diet has really messed with his head. He is constantly on the look out for crumbs, jumps up anytime someone heads to the kitchen, and seems to be more excited about the rattling of his food bag than anything else.  His manners have also gone out the window. Before this diet, he was pretty well behaved. Never begged for food, never got under your feet while cooking. Now, he will not leave you alone!! And the sad thing is, it’s because he is constantly hungry! What is a poor, starving pug to do??
