21 + x = 31 (solve for x)

I took Stanley to the vet on Tuesday after work for an ear infection. It started off as a wonderful vet visit, because even though I was ten minutes early there was no one else in the waiting room and they took us right away. I was anticipating at least a half hour. Anyway, the first thing of course is to step on the scale. I had already done so that morning so it was Stanley’s turn. He was 31 pounds. I was aghast. Why?

Because when we adopted him in December 2009 he weighed TWENTY-ONE POUNDS! How did we let this poor dog gain TEN POUNDS? Now granted, he was rather skinny at 21, so he doesn’t have to lose 10, but he certainly has to lose 5, at least. And if Stan gained weight I’m sure that Sherman could stand to lose a pound or two as well. He is not quite as light as I remember when I pick him up. The diet starts NOW! I feel terrible about this. Sorry, Stan!
