    Dog Obesity

    Two Cent Tuesdays

    Ah, we've all encountered one: the overweight pet. Obesity is a nutritional disease which is defined by an excess of body fat. Dogs that are over nourished, lack the ability to exercise, or that have a tendency to retain weight are the most at risk for becoming obese. Obesity can result in serious adverse health effects, such as reducing the lifespan, even if your dog is only moderately obese. Multiple areas of the body are affected by excess body fat, including the bones and joints, the digestive organs, and the organs responsible for breathing capacity.
    Obesity is common in dogs of all ages, but it usually occurs in middle-aged dogs, and generally in those that are between the ages of 5 and 10. Neutered and indoor dogs also tend to have a higher risk of becoming obese. (Source: PetMD)

    Approximate Ideal Weight By Some Breed Examples:
    Havanese, Border Terrier - 11 lbs.
    Beagle, Staffordshire Bull Terrier - 30 lbs.
    Collie, Samoyed - 55 lbs.
    American Staffordshire Terrier, Boxer - 66 lbs.
    Irish Wolfhound, Anatolian Shepherd - 88 lbs.
    Neopolitan Mastiff, Newfoundland - 122 lbs.
    Source: Dogster

    Possible Causes of Dog Obesity:
    Leaving out food for your pooch in a bowl and giving your dog high caloric treats frequently
    Having a low activity with your furry friend. Society has shifted from long walks to short, around the block walks with our dogs.
    Certain conditions exacerbate canine obesity such as hypothyrodism, Cushings Disease, Pancreatic Cancer, and pituitary problems.
    Reproductive: Feeding a neutered or spayed dog an average amount can cause obesity. They need about 1/4 less than average.
    Breed: Some breeds are more likely to become overweight or obese. These include Labrador Retrievers, Beagles, Cocker Spaniels and Basset Hounds.
    Source: Dogster

    On a positive note: Though dog obesity is a serious problem it is treatable.

    Nickson, Miniature Schnauzer, Age 1

    Meet Our Friends As Told By Baiba

    Nickson is a cute Miniature Schnauzer that traveled hundreds of miles from Germany to be with me. From a little age I noticed that Nickson is a serious dude with an attitude. While he’s very friendly and loving dog, he sure likes things to be his way and no other. For instance, he doesn’t like to give kisses on public - whenever I try to kiss him, he pushes me away with an expression that can only mean: “Mother please! Don’t kiss me on public!”.

    Nickson’s birth name is Jazz Singer. Little did I know, he was in fact a singer but not the type of singer my neighbors would appreciate, it turned out that Nickson loves to irritate our neighbors by howling while I’m gone.

    Nickson is very life-loving, full of energy, funky little dude that could spend hours playing with other dogs and never get tired. He is best known for his “moonwalk” – since we don’t have any carpets at home, it was pretty slippery for Nickson to move around the house; until one day he started walking backwards, getting into bed – backwards, moving from kitchen to living room – backwards etc. Every day with him is fun and unique, a special little circus show just for me and my family, my own little Michael Jackson’s dog version. Lately I’ve been planning to get another dog and I’m slightly curious if he is going to teach his sibling to copy his unique moonwalk! He is my little weirdo, all his quirks make him unique, and I love him dearly!

    { Meet Zoey Tan }

    Zoey Tan aka Zoey, Mini Schnauzer Age 1 in July

    Meet Our Friends As Told By Tricia T.

    "Zoey is a whole lot of sweetness with a mischievous streak. She wants everyone to know that she is ready to be played with and adored immediately upon meeting them. She shows this by laying on her back and getting into position for a belly rub. She is extremely good at knowing the exact moment you are about to open up a package of food or are getting ready to eat - regardless of what room of the house she's in. She will immediately come running the millisecond after you start preparing a meal or snack for yourself. Her favorite food are bananas and will stalk whoever is eating one around her until they give her a piece. She secretly would love to eat chocolate chip cookies but for obvious reasons, isn't allowed to. However, one great thing is that she knows better than to jump up on the dining chairs or table to access food. She'll sit patiently until someone feeds her or accidentally drops a piece!

    Zoey has been trained to follow the directions "sit", "paw", "high five", "dance", "come here", "stay" and "wait". If she could train me to do one thing it would probably be to give her the socks that I'm wearing since they are one of her favorite forbidden things to play with. Actually, if she could splurge on one item, it would probably be a pack of socks all for herself. (Of course getting the most luxurious and softest pair imaginable only to chew them apart). She'll actually usually play with them in the bathroom - which is her favorite not so secret hiding spot (but then again, most humans hide out in the bathroom as well so its totally acceptable).

    Zoey is so friendly and welcoming to anyone she sees. She never snaps or barks at anyone, and will usually whimper at people who pass her by without saying hello - something she hates to happen! She could probably run for mayor based on how she is such a people person! She is such a people person - so much so that she adores her vet (no matter how much she pokes her with needles or makes her uncomfortable by taking her temperature through her behind). She goes to the vet excited to see the entire staff there! If ever she did run away, she would probably just go right next door to the neighbor's house or the closest person to give her cuddles and affection. She loves other pets just as much as she loves people, and is always the most eager pet in the group to play. No matter the size of the pet, she wants to do everything together whenever she's around them. I definitely think she has a thing for bigger dogs - and is extra affectionate to a particular border collie that she's friends with. Zoey loves to pretend she's the same size as these bigger dogs, and has the same abilities as they do (even though she is much, much tinier).

    If Zoey could talk, she would probably talk about how hungry she is all the time, just for the chance to get something good to eat at every possible moment. She would also probably nag me to get off my phone and would probably get rid of it if she had her way. She is the best napping buddy and will immediately curl up next to you when you're settling down to take a nice nap. I love that initially, she will try to keep her eyes open for as long as possible to watch and wait until you fall asleep before closing her eyes. She would consider her best friends to be me and my husband, but loves all the people in her life more than anything, along with some of her doggy friends she sees on a regular basis. She probably thinks she's the most normal one in this home since everyone around her (most especially me) tries to do entertaining and silly things while playing with her (i.e. humans getting on eye level with her and acting like dogs, hiding under blankets so she can find them, etc.)

    Zoey is pretty neutral on whatever is on television, but her head always pops up when she hears the theme song to the show "Modern Family". She has also stared intently on the screen when either the dog on that show or Sophia Vergara is speaking, so I'd like to think she idolizes one of those two celebrities on the show. While watching the show "Homeland", my husband once picked her up and compared her face to the actor Mandy Patinkin's (the character Saul) - there was a striking resemblance! Although she would be caught dead wearing any of the plain colored clothing his character wears on the show - she is a brights kind of girl! (Her wardrobe consists of pinks, reds, and whites)

    Her favorite time is when her humans (myself and my husband) are both together on the couch, unwinding after work. She will drop whatever toy she's playing with (or bring it with her) to join us so we can all hang out together. She would rather be with us, sitting all together than anywhere else.

    The most memorable time I had with Zoey was her first night in our home. She wasn't scared or nervous at all. She immediately felt so comfortable here, as if she's been there for years. Later that night, she hopped right into her new bed and slept soundly throughout the night. That's when I knew she was a perfect fit here and for us.

    Zoey wants to let the world know she's ready to meet them! There isn't a mean or spiteful bone in her little body, and she loves making friends wherever she goes!"

    Yoda, Maine Coon, Age 3

    Meet Our Friends As Told By Amy B.

    "Yoda is a Maine Coon with a funny, unique personality. I got Yoda 3 years ago in a cardboard box from the back of a building. He was such a little fluffball! Being so young when he was taken away from his mother, we had to bottle feed him - what a cute and messy task!

    Yoda got his name from the Star Wars series character "Yoda." The very first night that we spent together, Star Wars happened to be on and we watched it together. Yoda stayed up for the entire movie! As I was watching I tried to find a name that would be suitable to my little ball of unblinking fluff...Yoda seemed to fit perfectly.

    As Yoda grew up, he became rather feisty and we started coming up with nicknames - Yodster, Vader, Yodi, Jungle Cat, Squirrel Butt (because of his fluffy tail), and finally Cotton Paws.Yoda is very fickle. He loves pets but only when he wants them but will always come for treats. I call him my treat mongrel."
