humph! well, if you're gonna be like that:
harriet brown, who holds excellent titles in counter surfing
Counter surfing is strangely enough, endemic in starving dogs.
and kidney beaning
In the hopes that she might get a kidney bean treat or a tiny piece of
orange peel, or that she might score a small amount of plain, pureed
pumpkin to confuse her into thinking that she's not really being starved
by her fatass owner?
and who is a grand champion boinger
elliott, who is just plain perfect
(funny, i wasn't aware that i never said anything positive
about my dogs.
Heh, people out in public tell you that Hattie is "positively starved to
death" and you just do your cutesy laugh and keep vet shopping...while
Hattie boings like tigger up on the counters looking for something to
fu#&ing eat which is more filling than an ounce of plain pureed ****ing
pumpkin you fatass fugly dog starving pig!
SHELLY IS THE ONLY ONE WHO DOESN'T THINK HATTIE IS STARVING
"when i got harriet she was emaciated, so i asked my vet for advice on
slowly adding weight to her. six months later i took harriet in for her
spring check-up and my vet was surprised that at how thin she still was."
"raises hand i've been told by three different vets that
harriet (53lbs) is *way* too skinny. we're still
"if you really can't resist
it when your dog pulls the "i'm starving!" routine G, you can give
him some frozen green beans or a small amount of plain pureed pumpkin.
i would also suggest putting the food out of his sight. i keep my
food--still inside the bags, which are tightly rolled down--inside
trash cans in the closed laundry room. that keeps it fresh and keeps
it out of my dogs' sight."
"heh. i get the opposite response. people think that poor little
harriet is positively starved to death. i've actually had people stop
me in the pet supply shop and tell me that i need to fatten her up!"
"i think that may be part of the problem. who wants to go to a
vet who tells you you're hurting your .widdle precious? i
think the other part is that some vets really don't *realize*
that what they consider proper weight is fat. after having
been told by a couple of vets that my dogs are too thin, i've
got a dim view of vets on that topic."
"my mom is kinda that way, but not *as* bad. she thinks that harriet is
awfully skinny, so feeding her table snax is okay. she tells me that
just a bite won't hurt."
NOBODY IS STARVING FAT PI.G SHELLY
NOBODY WILL STOP SHELLY ON THE STREET
AND TELL HER SHE IS STARVING HERSELF
shelly's fat face
There are a lot of big fat women on these groups who starve their dogs
out of vanity, but shelly is a special case.
shelly is moor.e than a little bit beyond the pale
Shelly has OCD, and maybe she's just a little obsessive about measuring
out extra tiny and discrete portions with a tiny measuring cup, or
counting out pieces of green bean or pumpkin that she gives her dogs
when they give her the "I'm Starving" routine. When grandma tried to
give Hattie a snack, shelly probably went apeshit, because it was in
violation of her Obsessive need to oversee every tiny calorie that goes
into her widdle precious' mouth.
shelly's a special case, a special kind of dog abuser.
i coulda sworn i'd bored all ya'll to death
with stories about how insufferably cute they both are.)
