Brad is 5 pounds overweight, 25% above where he should be. So the vet sent him home with a backpack full of tools to help with his weight loss: a measuring cup for his food, a toy mouse for him to chase, a frisbee, a book called "Fitness Unleashed" and a pedometer that clips onto his collar. Here he is sporting the pedometer:2000 steps = 1 mile. He has taken 4876 steps since Thursday. Don't be too impressed, though. If he scratches himself it registers as a step.
