It’s Thanksgiving Eve in the US tonight. Tomorrow, you may have family and friends over for a feast. You have to be careful. Before Kyla, the peeps had a rescue pup who was found wandering along I-280, just south of San Francisco. The peeps had their parents and friends over. The next day, Casper was not well and was rushed to the vet. It turns out that Black Friday, the day after, is one of the busiest days of the year for a vet because everyone wants to treat the dog and feed it often. This overdose of greasy fat makes it a vet’s nightmare, every guest wants the dog “treated”. The problem was that the dog got “treated” with an overdose of fat.
The problem is that every guest and family member loves dogs (even me, a bird) but too much of a good thing isn’t good. Insist that your guests not feed the dog at all, they’re not doing the dog any favors. A little bit is OK, but that should be up to you to monitor. Every guest who feeds under the table feels that he’s unique. When everyone does it, it’s not good.
Happy asparagus day, everyone.
