The Die-T


I've had sneaking suspicions for the last few days now, but was much too polite to confront the Chief.

The Big Chief's craftily put canines at Dog Woods on a Diet!! She's been downsizing our meal portions. Not that we've haven't notice ...
... we're just too easily pleased. Thrilled to be fed and the noticeably smaller portions is quickly forgotten the minute we gobble down our chow!

Our treats have been substitute to the low-fat version (not that we're complaining ... so long as we've got something to chew on) ... what am dogged about is the QUANTITY of treats - that has trickled down to mere measly few!And bow-wow-wow! Does the Chief make us WORK for it. The only thing we're allowed aplenty is fresh clean water - that quenches our thirst (in our hot humid Dog Woods weather) but hardly fills the stomach.

Working HARD for a TREAT!

When this TOP DOG (strongly urged by His Loyal Pack) asked the Chief when will this nonsensical Die-t end, the Chief replied - 'only upon sightings of a WAIST LINE!' ... and a rambling something about us lot being much too Tubby! :P

What in doggy heavens, may I ask, is a waist-line'?! I - Top Dog of Dog Woods have functioned happily and perfectly without one ... I don't think my proud pack (nor I) have ever MISSED our waist lines! We certainly don't see why have all have to go on a Diet NOW!?!

It must be that dog-gone documentary the Chief's been watching ... 'Downsizing my Pet'! is VERY BAD influence. *Grrrowl*

Honestly, the lack of Waist-Line can't possibly be that bad!

But the Big Chief argues otherwise...
Just because this TOP DOG and his Proud Pack i.e. Snoopy, Anna, Joe and Trixie have grown to prosperous barrel-and -dumpling-like proportions, such as
these ---> and
doesn't mean that we're FAT! We actually think we're quite CUTE! But obviously, the Chief doesn't seem to give two treats about what we Canines at Dog Woods think!

Instead we got lectured about our health - (we're doing very well in that department, thank you very much! Can we GET OFF our diet, please?!) And how staying SLIM (we're slim enough thank you very much!) would help prevent hosts of health problems - from joint problems to heart failure!

Our barking protests have fallen on deaf ears ...*HOOOOowwwwwllllllll* And so the Die-T regime continues ...

Snoopy : Kicking up a HUGE Fuss!!

Anna : Attempting to BEG for Treats by doing the CUTE routine

Joe : No longer his grinning self since the Die-T regime began

Trixie : Trying to convince the Chief she's actually SKINNY..


  1. Send us an address and we will post you through some treats cunningly disguised as something healthy!
    It is shocking! We have both been in kennels for some time so were looking thin with ribs showing etc - well they cant stop feeding us!!

  2. That is terrible news! I have overheard my Mummy talking about my DIE-T too. She said something about going onto a diet of dry bis-cuts. She told my Dad I was too pudgy. PUDGY! She tells me I am vol-up-chew-us! If you find a way to smuggle in treats, let me know.
    Big vol-up-chew-us licks to you

  4. Maybe woo can suck in the gut a bit and fool the Chief into thinking woo found your waistline. And then give the sad puppy eyes - that might work too.

  8. Hi Tuffy! Thanks for dropping by. It's really nice to meet you!

    Mine has been mentioning about putting me on a diet too. You don't look fat to me...Do I look fat to you? Guess the humans don't know what they're talking about.
