Does anybody else know people who are pretty much killing their dogs with kindness? Do you say anything to them? Here's my situation. I have a great uncle who has a seven year old yorkie named Yogi. Now here's the back story. Yogi used to belong to his SO, but when she was dieing of cancer she knew how heartbroken my uncle would be when she was gone. So, she left Yogi to him when she died. Now, the only thing that got my uncle through her death was this dog. My uncle pretty much treats Yogi like a person. He gives him people food to eat (chili and pizza or whatever he's eating) and he even gives Yogi pieces of caramel for treats. Now because of this diet Yogi is obese. I've tried telling my uncle that he can't feed Yogi like that and so has the vet, but my uncle seems to think the only way to show Yogi how much he cares is by giving him junk. Now I'm worried that because of his weight, Yogi is going to die really young, and I know my uncle would be devastated. Yogi is pretty much what keeps him going. I've thought about finding another dog for my uncle so if Yogi does pass, he'll still have something to keep him going. But I know that this isn't an ideal situation for a dog, and I'd pretty much be sentencing this dog to a life of obesity and probably a lot shorter life than it could have. I just don't know if it would be the right thing to do. What do you guys think?
