Why is Tally so sad?



Because it's not only humans who have to go on diets in January, that's why.



It's pathetic, the way she stands moaning over her empty food bowl but I'm standing firm. Apart from when I get distracted by gossip and turn round to find her scavenging for bacon sandwiches in the park's outdoor cafe with her friend, Zach.



You can tell that Zach is one of those cool dogs just by looking at him, can't you? The truth is that he'll only play with Tally if there isn't any one better on the horizon, but we don't mind. During diet time, we're happy for any crumbs that come our way.

And my writing prompt for today is ... She was levitating ...

She's not fat! She's adorable. She must have a few treats while dieting. A baby carrot? A Greenie? Do you have those in England? By the way we have Creme eggs here. So come back over.

I'm on my way. I'll go anywhere for a creme egg...

A Greenie? What the darn is that?

Oh how sweet! Molly (our dog) likes Baker's moist meaty chunks, but I just noticed she hasn't eaten them this morning. Maybe she's put herself on a diet...

Not sure, ALex - a brussel sprout?
Wish Tally would join in with enthusiasm, Karen - she's sitting here as I type, watching me and trying to will me to get her a biscuit. I can tell.

OH, poor tally! I don't think she's fat at all, maybe just a unfortunate angle?

Why, Carlos, that sounds like something I might say myself...
