I say all that to say this... The last three times I have gotten on FB, on the right side is one of their zillion groups that you can join - it's the "help fight pet obesity" group. REALLY? I'm sorry, but that is insane. First of all, it's an ANIMAL! It's not at school, shooting quarters into the Coke machine or a teenager that is working at McDonald's, therefore, eating way too many double-cheeseburgers on break. It's a DOG and if your dog is fat, it's very, very simple - don't feed it so much. Give the dog a half a bowl and stop sharing your after-dinner Little Debbies. Pet obesity is so simple that there should seldom be a conversation about it, much less a Facebook group.
On an even more important level, there are children dying from hunger every few minutes (or seconds) and we, as Americans, are on FB chatting with other dog owners about their poodle's weight problems and buying them special doggie diet food. I totally have my new pet peeve in life!
Because none of my dogs are over-weight or have a current picture, I present Elijah napping in his boots yesterday - he's even cuter than a fat Pomeranian, I think.
I'm off to teach my boys to borrow while subtracting, for the third day in the row.
