I had a follow-up call from Beau's veterinarian.  Looks like he is hypothyroid, which may account for the heart murmur she noticed during his last exam and his weight gain.  I'm glad to know it isn't our fault.  I just couldn't figure out how he could gain so much in a year if we haven't changed his diet.  The lab is doing a T3 & T4 test to determine the level of medication he'll need.  I'm so relieved that it's something easily treatable and doesn't mean his life will be shortened.   I want as much time with my wonderful boy as I can get.

Guess he doesn't have to give up licking out dregs from the Skippy jar after all.


And not to leave out the ladylike Miss Peaches...
