Because of Sparky’s partial blindness she has been confined to the house. No more stalking the back 40 looking for varmints. All that enforced inactivity has caused a little settling of the meat and potatoes in her rump area.

So after thinking hard about her once svelte figure (see above photo) Sparky has embarked on an exercise regimen.
