The Stress Diet
Dave's most recent adventure, outside of his birthday, was traveling to Finland for two weeks over the Christmas period. It proved both successful and stressful. He lost over 1kg even though he was getting more than his normal measure of rations, we think this was due to stress. We were either in a train, bus, ferry or a car for over 48 hours in total, not to mention staying in strange places every night and criss-crossing our way through the urban metropolises of Stockholm and Helsinki. Upon returning home, Dave's bum was really wagging like a mad thing and he slept like a log. Now we can concentrate on fattening him up again.
He did have some fun though, he met some dogs from koirat.com, a Finnish dog forum, and our hosts on two occasions also had a dog, so Dave met lots of new friends, as did we.
