Aby-a-Day – 8 Oktober 2020: Alfred and Dashiell (Thursday Things)

After yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday post featuring Dashiell, I was asked how Dash compares to Alfred in size.

Well, they are actually quite similar in size. Dash is a little taller (he has longer legs) and he’s very well-muscled and lithe. Freddy is stockier, broader in the chest, and naturally heavier-boned. And…well, Freddy is a chonk.

The last time I weighed them (27 September), Dash weighed 4.4 kg (9.7 lbs) and Freddy weighed 5.5k g (12.1 lbs). I have Freddy on a diet, and I try to let him out to run as much as I can. He’s just too good at stealing food! Apparently, his sisters are also big eaters, so I think he’s just naturally husky compared to Dash.
