Mota Bacha means "fat baby" in Hindi. Lady and I both are too big in the middle, but our diet isn't going so well. I need to lose five pounds. I'm not getting extras (much), but it is too hot to exercise. Normally in August, the rains keep the temps down around 90 degrees or less. But not this year. All week it's been 103 plus. It's 90 in our living room. So we hang out in the guest room. The AC in our room isn't working well. The AC man is coming tomorrow. 
The vet said I can have 140 grams of dog chow a day. I am on Royal Canin Adult mini, plus some supplements for my bones. He suggested a weight reduction dog food, but I don't like my food changed unless it is my idea. I like this chow. 
Any ideas furrends on helping me get my buff bod back?


  1. Me and brudder Max (DaOdderWeenie) are on diets too. Mommy says we're too FAT! I don't think we're FAT. Mommy is starving us! HELP!

  2. Go over to the LIGHT young Marley, Luv's Cat Flap Cavalier X

  3. Good luck with the diet Marley and stay cool and have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    Hot as it is dear Marley (and lady), that little stretch of the legs really can't be missed! That and even less extras than the 'not much'; it's an Eternal Truth! Good luck with it. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. You'll have to have less chow and green beans and carrots to make up the bulk.

  6. Be careful of the protein level of the food too. You don't want to go over 26 percent being a small dog. I think Natural Balance Fat Dog is a good food and has the lowest calorie content that I know of

  7. Sweet Marley, Muffin and I have the exact same problem at hour house. (In fact, so do our humans!) Especially now that we can't leave Grandpa Bob OR Daddy alone, the only exercise we get is running to our food dish. Mommy does give us unsalted green beans and pure pumpkin in our dishes because they are high in fiber and filling. Butt.... that don't stop us from begging for treats!

    (We just got out computer network back on line, so Mommy will reply to Lady when she finds some free time. In the meantime, please thank Lady for her nice letter.)

  8. Marley, Buddy boy here in hot FL. I keep my weight down by playing ball ;morning and night with my Lady. But you can't run with you bad back. Also, for the past week, my master has been in the hospital. He is the treat giver and "feed me from the table" person. He had a very serious colon surgery. Only has half a colon now. He will probably go to a rehab hospital this weekend. May stay in that place for 2 weeks. If he stays that long I will really be skinny. Please pray that he will heal in a hurry. I miss him.
