And Your Dog’s Fat, Too!

Fresh on the report that the United States has made the list of the “10 Fattest Countries” – that is countries with the highest percentage of people that are obese…

Comes the report that all this pulchritudinous living is affecting fido and Fritz as well!

Animals Face Obesity Epidemic, Too

America is suffering from anobesity epidemic—and not just among the humans. A new study of more than 20,000 animals shows that even family pets, wild critters that live close to humans, and research animals are getting fatter, Scientific American reports. The biostatistician who published the study looked at weight changes in eight different species including primates and rodents in research centers, pet cats and dogs, and urban rats. They’re all packing on the pounds.

“Now, we don’t know why these increases occurred, but it invites some very interesting speculation,” he says. Unhealthy food and lack of exercise are blamed for the human problem, “but maybe there are other things that are important—because those things can’t be acting on the marmosets, or the rats and mice in the National Toxicology Program.” One theory is that it’s something in the water, literally: maybe toxins that are messing up the endocrine system of humans and animals alike. Future studies may explore the possibility.

 

 

Whats the Deal With White Women and Dogs?

Sisters have their idiosyncrasies, wanting to be known as “Divas” yet treated like “Queens”…

And white women have their dogs.

Go on any dating site, and black women will have one or two shots of themselves typically out of focus, taken with a cameraphone…

And white women will have one shot of themselves…

And 14 pictures of their dog(s).

Kinda lets a guy know where exactly he ranks in the relationship.

Might want to keep your pants on there brother, just in case Fido, pissed off at having to share attention…

Starts thinking your man parts look like walking Kibbles and Bits.

The $3 Million Mutt

Heiress Duped Into Leaving Millions to Dogs, Son Claims

The son of the late heiress Gail Posner says his mother was duped into writing a will that gave away nearly $30 million to her staff and her pampered dogs while leaving him with only $1 million.

Posner, the daughter of the late real estate mogul Victor Posner, died of cancer at the age of 67 in March. She left $26 million to her bodyguards, maids and personal trainer, and a $3 million trust to ensure that her chihuahuas, including a Cartier-wearing canine named Conchita, can continue their decadent lifestyle. One bodyguard alone got $10 million. Millions more went to charity.
