|You think I'm fat??|
Well, this is a particularly sensitive subject for me, as I'm sure it is with many of my amigos.
Dr. Becker, a well know vet, in an exclusive interview with DogTipper (one of my former "favorite" blogs) has issued the statement "They will dig their grave with their food bowl"- scare tactics that its been proven do nothing but cause additional stress and make us want to eat more.
His tips for recognizing if a pooch is a little pudgy is:
a) Feel their ribs (ha! try to find mine, is more like it)
b) there should be an indentation at their waist (an hour glass shape) and therefore I suppose a pronounced pouch would not be ideal.
Okay, Dr. Becker, I barked off to your other remark, "All dogs love to walk."
|Sorry, Dr. Becker, nobody walks in LA.|

I'd sure like to hear from those of you "full figured" fidos who share my feelings!
