|Happy is another fatty. When he goes to the groomer, people's jaws drop and then they pretend that they didn't see anything. Yes, I know, he's fat. I'm not delusional, he's not just "fluffy" or "big boned."
But the problem is, he's been on a diet for years.(Supposedly.) He gets only two cups of dry dog food (and it's not a dense grain-free brand either) with about a half-cup of canned mixed in per day. Half a slice of bologna for bedtime snack, and that's it. It's mystifying. Someone is sneaking him treats, or he has some kind of metabolic disorder. He weighs about 90 lbs, and should be 50. Something's not right here...
I feel kinda bad about it, because I'm always telling people that I enjoy seeing thin, muscular, healthy dogs, and then have this lump in my home...
Maggie is getting fat also. She's my grandma's dog too, so I can't control her diet, but I try to drop hints and feed the dogs the proper amount before my grandma can rush in and overdo it. Half the time Maggie doesn't finish her meals, and my grandma gets worried- "Is she okay? Why isn't she eating?"- she's not eating because it's too much food... I;m sure that while I'm away my gram has gone back to giving her about 3 cups a day instead of two.
At least my personal dog, Bruno, is not getting chubby... I watch his weight like a hawk.
