Friday 55 Flash Fiction #210 Slimmer of the Year....

She hadn't wanted to go on a diet but they told her she must.

Her calories had been cut by half.

At first she was starving but, as she began to lose weight, she became more active and that was fun.

Now here she was - a fitter, 

slimline Labrador - Kennel Club's Slimmer Of The Year!

Jenny Woolf said...

Haha! that had me fooled for a moment :) maybe cause I know how she feels!

Valerie said...

I was fooled as well, Pearl. It's good though, we all know that Labradors are prone to excess weight if we don't watch their diets.

Margaret said...

It is SO easy to put my dog on a diet... wish I had someone in control of feeding me! :)

I should send this to my mother - I keep telling her she's let her dogs get too fat.
