Teddy is anorexic


I am convinced of this because he is a bitch to feed. He will pick at his food and then run to the door to go out in some sort of attempt to fool me. You know how some people who are around a bunch of overweight people become obsessed with calories? I think that this has happened to Teddy. Both my brother and father have dogs that are a bit thick around the middle and I think Teddy is just trying to watch his girlish figure. Most days I have to sit on the kitchen floor with him and tell him to "eat your dinner." Also, he is pretty picky and prefers to eat his food directly off of the floor. I think he finds the bowl superfluous and the floor provides a delicious aftertaste to his dry food. Generally, you are not supposed to change up dog food because it makes it even harder to get them to eat so that's why I haven't tried anything new. One positive side effect to all of his shenanigans is that he is really good at catching his food midair. Sometime when I really want to him to eat I will toss little bites to him and he has about an 85% accuracy rate. We may take the show on the road.

You and Teddy should be part of the next USO show! I'd come watch you feed him :) but I do expect petting privileges.

Be glad it's just the floor he likes to eat off of, he could be like Kyle's mom's dog who like to drop their food in your shoes and then eat it....
