    This post actually hits home for me because my dog-brother Charlie is overweight because my mom gives in to those puppy dog eyes…

    She gives him treats and snacks and doesn’t realize that its killing him because she loves him so much and that’s how she shows love. She does the same with me except I have a better metabolism at the moment than Charlie does.

    She really needs to exercise him and cut back on his treats. Like does he really need peanut butter in that KONG thing?! No!

    This is a great post, very informative, lots of good solutions for helping a dog lose weight!!

      Thanks, Lesley! Yes, unfortunately, many well-meaning dog families give in to those puppy dog eyes (including myself sometimes!). And in moderation it’s not such a big deal. But if done on a regular basis and without exercise to wear off the calories, the pounds just add up and cause problems. I wish there was a way to convince people they sometimes need “tough love” when it comes to saying “no” to those begging eyes.
