I am certainly not trying to make fun of a very serious condition.....but.....I think that my Hawkydog may have body dysmorphic disorder. DB and I have always had a running argument about what constitutes a healthy weight in our dogs. He likes him fat and has trouble determining when they have gained weight...Now, in all honesty, I REALLY aught not to complain about that, seems how it just may apply to how he views my weight fluctuations! But just because I am fat, does not mean that I tolerate my animals being fat....which is a whole different psychological issue....one that has me feeling just a trifle pathetic at the moment....hmmm.... The dog! The dog is fat! The problem is that while I may buy the food, DB is the one that actually feeds the dog. About a year ago I put Hawk on a really low cal diet after he weighed in at a hardy 72 pounds. The perfect weight for Hawkydog would be just over 65. He did fairly well on this diet until a few months ago when he started to really back on the pounds. I complained and tried to make DB see the light but he insisted that Hawk was not that fat and that he had not gained weight more than a few pounds. We made an over/under bet (and fun little wager *wink*) about whether he was above or below 75 pounds. Poor DB didn't stand a chance. Wanna know how much Fatty weighed in at? 83 pounds. Eighty. Three.
Our dog is a freakin sausage. So, Hawky has been on put on a very strict diet that has left him with the firm belief that we are in fact trying to starve him to death and his usual exercise has been increased ten fold. Well, apparently, DB is not the only one who failed to notice that he was not quite as small as they one were.... leading me to question if Hawkydog may have case of body dysmorphic disorder....
Because he clearly does not fit in this bed.
Or in this chair.
Its okay Hawkydog...you don't need to look ashamed. Its not your fault your Daddy made you fat!
"Hey, Mom! Why don't we go and check out what's in your closet! Huh! Still hanging on to those jeans from high school...Ha! Keep dreaming. Who has the disorder now?!"
"I love you even though your a fatty too!"
Ouch! Hawk, that hurt. That really hurt.
