Not walking long enough

I saw a Chihuahua walking on a leash a couple days ago that was so fat that I thought they invented a new dog breed: a mini Bulldog.

I grew up with a Chihuahua that was 19 lbs when she should have weighed 10 lbs or 11 lbs, and she was probably about half as fat as this dog.

My cats are going apeshit because they are all on a diet. No more 17 pound cats around here!

Last time I put my cats on a diet, unrelatedly, one of them got some kind of inflammation of one of her organs and stopped eating. She had to get a feeding tube put in, and I had to get her back to her former fatness.

Even though it was unrelated to the diet, I still link the sickness and the diet in my mind. This probably won't last long, but the vet gave the cats free reign to be as fat as they want. They better hog out while they can, because I bet their food party will be revoked the next time we visit the vet.

My Chihuahua is so chunky that I was kind of excited when the vet thought she had a thyroid problem. Turns out she's fine, just fat.

Aw Katie, there is no hope for your dog being not-fat since she is a chihuahua.
