    DefaultArticle on pet weight (and pic of one very fat lab)


    This poor dog. 168 pounds. It almost made me cry, thinking about how he can't even really enjoy life the way he should. It accompanied a good article on the problems of having a fat pet, and how a lot of owners are in denial about their pet's weight.

    Are you 'loving' your pet into an early grave?

    OMG, that poor dog. How can anybody with a pair of working eyes not see that the dog is overweight?

    I came straight here after seeing that on cnn. I'm sure the owner loves their dog but they're not showing it in the right way.

    The poor "little" guy.

    Oh. My. God. That poor dog! That's just plain CRUEL. If that woman in the photo is the dog's owner, I'd like to smack that stupid smile right off her face. >

    Ugh. I love how they started a raw food debate in the comments section.... :

    I loved this quote:

    But almost half of the owners of overweight pets rated their cats and dogs as having the "ideal" body condition.

    That is one very large labrador! I thought Molly was fat at 90 lbs, when she should ideally be around 85 max.
