Fat Dogs / Anorectic Models

Why is it that the weird articles seem to show up in the weekend newspaper? Maybe it’s the same reason that weekend programs on Christian radio are so weird. That is, unless you want to get rid of those annoying intestinal parasites.

The topper today was an article on a new drug approved for obese dogs. I guess now that dogs are hung up on the Xbox and TV, they don’t have time to go outside and get a little exercise. Maybe it would help if they weren’t set a plate at the family table.

The article says that around 5 percent of dogs are obese and another 20 to 30 percent are considered overweight. I hope the dogs don’t read the article, it could damage their self- esteem.

As with so many drugs, there are the side effects. In this case, loose stools, diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy and loss of appetite. So the dog is looking pretty good, but now the house is a mess.

In case you were wondering, it’s not recommended for humans. It figures, I could use a little lack of appetite.

The placement of the article was interesting. Right below it is an article on anorectic fashion models. Maybe we have something here. If we could get the models to take the dogs place at the table, progress could be made for both of them. Another idea would be to pair a skinny model with a fat dog.

On the other hand, maybe the answer is something completely different.
