GUESS WHO GAINED 4 LBS. OVER THE LAST MONTH!!!

pep stretch

Showing off his new beefcake bod!

It’s PEPPER!!

He had a follow-up appointment with the vet this morning, and he went from 57.5 lbs. March 24 to 61.7 lbs. today! We left a pee sample with the vet so he can run another urinalysis to see if there’s still protein in it, but the vet said dogs with Lyme don’t gain weight, they lose it, so he’s pretty confident Pepper is perfectly healthy, even if the urinalysis does show there’s still a little protein.

I am so relieved!

He really didn’t eat that much more over the past month; he didn’t like the high-calorie food we bought him, and he didn’t seem to want to eat more at a sitting than what we’d already been giving him. But I didn’t run as many miles with him, I gave him more treats after each run and I’ve definitely been giving him more bits of meat whenever I’m eating any — all things Pepper could definitely get used to haha.

Anyway, he did run me with this morning. We went out early for a lap around the 6.5-mile loop. I felt a lot better than I did during yesterday’s run.

This weekend is the last one before I’m pacing the Ocean City half marathon next Saturday. I have a 5-miler and a one hour, 45-minute run on the schedule. I think I’ll take the Garmin on the long run and try to run the 12.2-mile loop at my pace group pace.

Other than that, I don’t really have any big plans for the weekend. There’s a NASCAR race in Richmond on Sunday afternoon to watch.
