Oh boy, our Bella turns out to be even mightier than we first thought! Even her vet was surprised how strong she was.
It had been almost four months since Bella was last wormed, therefore, I needed to buy Drontal from the vet. I ordered it over the phone, and they wanted to know exactly how much she weighed so they could administer a correct dose of the wormer. I knew roughly how heavy (or light) she was – she hopped on the scale in our walk-in-wardrobe one evening, and it indicated she was around 3kg. ‘Why don’t you bring Bella with you? We haven’t seen her for a while.’, the receptionist suggested. Since Bella loved visiting her vet (unlike Mr.B), we travelled together so they could see how much she had grown.
‘OMG! Bella has changed!!’, the nurses squealed when we walked into the practice. ‘She has grown, hasn’t she?’ ‘Her coat has gone much lighter too!’ Last time they saw her was when she was still sporting her dark puppy coat. One of them cuddled her in her arms and the other girl fed her a treat. No wonder Bella loved her vet!
So how much she weighs precisely? It is not 3kg but 2.6kg! A 1kg dumb-bell is about 38% of her body weight, and she can carry it around with her jaw and trot around the room twice. Could I carry around 16kg in my jaw? Faye, her vet, was very impressed how strong her neck was.
