"From "Chow Hounds" by Dr. Ernie Ward:
You must track treats!
A 10 lb dog requires approx. 200 - 220 calories per day.
If you feed your 10 lb dog
*1 Purina Beggin Strip (30 cal.) it's like you eating 1 McDonald's Cheeseburger (310 cal)
*2 Dogswell Happy Hips Glucosamine and Chondritin Lamb and Rice Treats
(74 Cal) is equal to 3 Hershey Bars (690)
*1 Greenies Teenie (25 cal) is equal to you drinking 2 - 12 oz Coke Classics (280)
A 20 lb dog requires approx. 340 calories per day
If you feed your dog:
*1 Snausage Snawsome Apple and Peanut Butter (137 calories) it's equal to you eating 1/2 of a Large Domino's Extra Cheese Pizza (916 calories)
*1 Greenies Light Petite (51 calories)which translates to 1 McDonald's Hot Fudge Sundae for you (330 cal.)"
Calories do count!
So... guess who is now living with the consequences... Auntie Robin, I love you very much, but you do know that sometimes... you harsh my buzz.
Ok , really calories are a buzzkill. I don't get most of the stuff you named... And now what little I get [poor me, sigh...] gets scrutinized, factored and discussed.
HARSH HARSH HARSH. Oh and then... that momma gets all icky and drags us out for what she calls "power walks". We, refer to these walks as endurance marches.
It just ain't easy being moi...
