  1. Heeeee. My dog has one of those too. And yes, we’ve tried diet, exercise, everything. Tut. The obesity epidemic has officially spread to German Shepards. :)

  2. Secondhand obesity. You are an abusive dog owner and doggie should be removed from you. If we find out his food is white, he’s being taken tonight.

  3. Well, since Kate has a baby donut pipeline right into her closet so she can hide and eat, it was only a matter of time before the dogs got into the crumbs she leaves behind. Al was right to question the dogs, what if they start to think it’s ok??

  4. You know, I’m giggling at this potential scenario:

    Al [playing with dog]: What is this?

    Kate: A dog.

    *rimshot*

  5. I have a lipoma, have had since I was in my early 30s. Odd little thing, right on my left bicep. Well, not so little, it’s some two inches across. Weirdly enough, I think it’s the one thing physically wrong with me no-one’s ever tried to claim was because of my weight.

    It itches sometimes, but otherwise, eh. So, give Solly a scritch for me [g].

  6. He forgot to interrogate Solly about his weight.

    How much does Solly weigh? And what does he eat during a normal day? Mmm…doesn’t Solly realise that dog food is full of calories and that calories are bad for you? Does Solly do any exercise? Really? Well, he needs to exercise more regularly (regardless of whether he does none or devotes 40 hours a week to it).

  7. The January 29 Health section of the Washington Post had a big article about doctors dismissing obese patients’ health problems. Cites several stories – including Thorn’s mother – where patients have been dismissed with instructions to lose weight as the only care provided.

  8. Yeah, but, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwDEF-w4rJk. Fuck Dove.

    Props to Al for being hilarious. I think I did read an article about how the obesity epidemic has spread to animals a couple years ago. I remember because my mom was inscensed at having been berated by the vet her kitty’s yearly checkup because the cat was “morbidly obese”. Being a librarian, she did some research on the phenomenon. And concluded it’s ridonk.

  9. Hmph. I’ve had people suggest that my dog is “a little chunky” because her ribs are merely visible without sticking out. Morons.

  10. You know, I’m giggling at this potential scenario:

    Al [playing with dog]: What is this?

    Kate: A dog.

    Hee! I don’t know about Kate and her BF, but my BF and I actually have conversations like this all the time. We walk into the room and pretend to be shocked that somehow an enormous dog snuck into the house without our noticing (we’ve had her for 4 years) or facetiously ask each other what the enormous creature in the living room is. “Holy crap, is that a bear?” and stuff like that. :)

    Hmph. I’ve had people suggest that my dog is “a little chunky” because her ribs are merely visible without sticking out. Morons.

    Grr. I always thought you were supposed to be able to feel the ribs but not necessarily see them. But it wouldn’t shock me if dogs were being considered “overweight” at lower weights than previously, since that’s the same crap they pulled on us humans…
