It all better be covered in Bacon salt. Otherwise it's just not worth it.

I have a 12-year-old Boston Terrier. He gets fed once a day, in the morning, and he usually eats about 3/4 of the food right away, then has the rest for a snack in the evening. His walking activity is shockingly low (I take him out into the ghetto backyard twice a day, 3 times in the summer) but he's still quite fit. He was a few pounds overweight a couple of summers ago, but I sent him to my sister's house for 2 weeks for "fat camp". I was on vacation, they took him camping... they played "fetch" with him until he literally couldn't step up 6" onto the patio, and he lost more weight than he should have. Seriously, these are pets... YOU control what they eat, and YOU control what activities they partake in. It's not hard to keep your pet healthy, just don't feed it fatty/sugary treats, and give it a good run-around once in a while! (my British sweetheart has called me a "meat nazi" because I wouldn't give my dog the leavings on my dinner plate... I told him I just don't want my dog to die of heart failure or diabetes)

Here's my girl, a brittany spaniel mix. Took forever to get her to put on weight after we adopted her because she was so high energy and didn't eat a whole lot of the food she was on from her previous owner, which was a mid-grade brand. Now she gets one meal in the morning of a premium kibble and one at night combined with training related treats throughout the day and plenty of activity when we're home. She's finally up to a good, healthy weight and stays there.

Unless you're putting a giant full bowl out in the morning and filling it every few days when it's empty and not letting the dog get any exercise... I don't get this pet obesity thing. *shrug*

Like children, I guess pets are something some morons just shouldn't have.

This is why I laugh when I hear whiny, nasally Brits snicker about how "fat" North Americans are. I have met enough Brits to know they have a good number of chubbies as well, and its not just pets.

Your dog is so fat, it had on a yellow doggie shirt and everyone thought he was the sun.

Your dog is so fat, he's been declared a natural habitat for Condors.

Your dog is so fat, he walked by the TV and I missed four episodes.

HAHAHA No. You Fail. Actually we scrubbed the knives *before* using them. Those were knives that my housemate inherited from his uncle (a butcher). We scrubbed off the rust with steel wool before we put them into our food. We had some excellent food in that house though.

BTW, where's your fat pet?

Actually, onions cause Heinz body anemia.

Murphy was a great cat, he singlehandedly wiped out a shrew colony that was living under my mom's house, he liked ladders, and when I got my nose pierced he *knew* I shouldn't have a piece of metal stuck in my nose so he tried to gently remove it while I slept. I miss that fat ol' guy and I don't even like cats all that much.

Anecdote: I bought him at a pet store, and as I was driving home, I had no idea what to call him. Then suddenly, it came to me his name was "Murphy". He answered to that name from the second I got him into the house.
 
2007-09-01 12:30:54 AM
OH one more anecdote: Murphy was about 8 years old when the healthy, happy dog came to live with us... his favorite game was "chase the kitty and chew on his head". The cat got fed up one day and bit one of the dog's floppy ears. The puppy yelped for a good 5 minutes after that, and he still to this day sports a scar from his "pierced" ear. (Still chased the kitty, just was more careful when he pinned the cat down & chewed on his head)

I've always lucked out and had animals that don't overeat. My cat's bowl is always kept full and he's a perfect weight. The last time we were at the vet we were praised for keeping him so healthy, but we really don't do anything special to keep him fit. He's just an active kitty who doesn't eat much.

2007-09-01 12:41:28 AM
fred_chan some pets are like that. You and I can consider ourselves lucky. We don't have to work hard to manage our pets' weight. I failed miserably with my Last Cat Ever, because I didn't know at the time that overweight cat = diabetes. I have since learned, and when my pup's weight goes over the limit I cut back on rawhide & treats. The secret is paying attention to your pet's health, BEFORE you take it to the vet for the yearly checkup. My dog starts porking out, we start taking longer walks and he gets less treats (more verbal/physical "treats") You care for your own health, why would you not do the same for the animal who depends on you for everything?

When I lived in London for a while, I was amazed at how well-behaved their pet dogs were, on a whole. People would walk them without leashes in public parks, and the dogs didn't bark at strangers or chase anybody.

Now, (back in the suburban US), I can't walk for 3 blocks through my neighborhood without being chased by 1-2 unleashed angry dogs.

Maybe British dogs are more complacent because they're fatties.

They're better-behaved because they're treated as pets, not babies. Those British dogs (and American well-trained dogs) know their place, know their boundaries, and are much happier than their near-feral counterparts worldwide. No. You don't get to attack humans. Not yours. *sit*

Section 31: Unless you're putting a giant full bowl out in the morning and filling it every few days when it's empty and not letting the dog get any exercise... I don't get this pet obesity thing. *shrug*

You nailed it right there. Too many idiots keep dogs as cute little fluffy pets than you can dress up (aaaagh), without realizing that it's an animal that in most cases are capable of running long distances and needs exercise on a regular basis. That's why I don't have one even if I'd love to. I don't have enough free time to give a dog the attention and exercise it deserves.

Llois: Hahahahh... good answer. Give a dog broccolis? Hope you brought your NBC suit.

What the fark indeed! Even when I was obese, my pets were pretty trim, because they only ate what I gave them.

Just tie its leash to the towbar every time you drive to the shops, it'll lose some weight one way or another.

This is me with Enoch. Yeah, I over fed him a bit. Though, when he wasn't hunched up like that to eat or wash, he seemed pretty svelte.
