Maximus: 15 pounds, 3 years
A couple weeks back, the Hellboys went in for their annual check-up. Everyone at the vet ooh’d and aaah’d over what a fine strapping fellow Max has become. These are the folks who literally bottle fed him as a kitten, so they have every right to be proud.
Max was a real trooper for the whole event, refusing to come out of his carrier at first, then deciding the better part of valor was to hide under a chair. We had to unscrew the crate’s halves, removing him en masse. Vet offices do have a certain aroma about them, I guess.
His check-up went fine, with Max weighing in at a whopping 15 pounds 3 ounces. That’s huge! Still no one suggested he was overweight, or in need of a diet, which was good. Max models his soft sweet potato shape – be careful, there’s claws under that padding!
