Twiggy

Just a warning: I know some of you are sensitive to this kind of stuff, so I just want to give you a headsup right here that the pictures I'm going to post below are not pleasant and might lead to "Ima Have to Kick Someone's Ass" feelings. So, you might want to look away for a minute.

It seems like ever since I've been doing this rescue thing, we've gotten in at least one dog every year that becomes the standard for how bad things can get. Last year it was Tate. As in, "Holy Crap that dog is skinny, but at least he's not bad as Tate." You know? He kinda held the record for a while, until this week that is. Now it is, "Holy Crap, that dog is skinny, but at least it's not as bad as Twiggy, who is not only a friggin walking skeleton.. BUT HAS THREE PUPPIES FEEDING OFF OF HER TOO." (sorry 'bout the all caps, it gets me riled up).

This is the wookies' mama. Together the three of them weigh almost as much as she does...which, no, that ain't right. We are currently feeding her as many times a day as she'll eat. And I don't mind telling you, hearing that dog burp after a full meal is what I aim for. Anyway, here's Twiggy. She's a good mama.

That is incredible. I hope she fattens up soon. Poor thing. I bet she's going to be beautiful when you get her to a normal size!

Y'know, Paddy was that skinny when he first came and started pissing on my rugs. As you have witnessed, I can assure you that fattening them up IS possible. Fattening and fattening and fattening and.....

Oh. Man. I'm so glad she found her way to you! Keep fattening her up like a Butterball. Maybe she'll track down her previous owners. And eat them.
