    First, I took Happy to the pet store for a weigh-in today.... she has lost 5 pounds in the 2 months I've had her! :) She's now at the weight that the vet & I guesstimated she needed to be at. She still feels a bit flubbery but from here we'll just see what happens, I'm just ecstatic I got that weight off of her.

    I was also admiring how much better she looks these days.

    This was taken a few days after I adopted her:

    This is from today:

    (Major props to my camera for focusing awesomely and making the leash invisible!)

    She looks younger! I don't even know if she's really 12 years old. I think her rough condition contributed to making her look like an old lady. Amazing what good grooming can do.

    Anyway, there's my random post for today. Seeing the weight loss just made me want to compare to how she started out!
