During this holiday season we tend to overfeed our dogs, because they are such a good salesman with those begging eyes, please try to not overfeed your dogs. Here's a public service announcement that just do that very well, please pass it along. Cheers and Happy Holidays:

We will see several dogs with pancreatitis after the all the holiday jubilation is said and done. One in particular didn't make it after all the turkey and gravy on Thanksgiving. We keep it limited to strictly kibble and the usual cookies here.

Of course, Zeus will be getting his annual Birthday ribeye! wink

Our dad is the same way. He can't understand why we only beg around him and why mom gets so irritated with him for giving us stuff that he's eating. shrug
Oh! Maybe 'cause he eats lots of yummy junk food. laugh out loud
Mom only gives us healthy stuff. confused

I went to a Christmas party at lunchtime today. My plate had a ugly mess on it when I was done - fat edges from the ham, pie crust, etc. Someone wanted to get me a bag so I could take it home for my dogs. I got some looks when I said my dogs don't eat things like this. They eat healthier than I do!

I like their tiny waistlines and glowing good health too much to overfeed them or feed them the wrong foods.
