Do you have someone who seems to be feeding your dog table scraps against your wishes? Is your dog hanging around a certain person in the house on a regular basis? Dogs know who and where they can manipulate people. They know where they can get what they want!
Food and treats are things dogs don’t turn down. We noticed our dog had gained a significant amount of weight and no matter what we tried to do someone was sabotaging our attempts at keeping his weight in a healthy range.
The person we suspected of providing food of all sorts denied doing so. We noticed that person was loosing weight, but also noticed napkins stuffed with food. Denial was ongoing, but suspicion continued.
Within a year of this person’s death, our dog lost 5 pounds without doing anything different. As sad as the loss was, the truth of how the extra weight was put on became obvious. We just laugh at this permanent diet and it’s called “The grandma die…it”.
We’re sure she’s laughing at us from heaven! She always told us if she were to come back in life … she want’s to come back as our dog!
Our dog had a permanent weight loss only after a significant loss of life of the person keeping him well fed by table scraps and other unknown treats! Food is definitely the way to a dogs heart, and stomach! The lack of food was an accurate lie detector test when weight loss became obvious!
Delayed response to a lie-detector minus the fees. At that point who care if you pass or fail? You passed the doggie test of time, patience, love and FOOD (treats, snacks, meals) … a direct route to their existence and stomach! Nothing usually gets past Mom!, but eventually it catches up with you!
Have you had an experience with someone feeding your animals against your better judgement?
