How does a dog get this fat and why does no one never feed it again until her stomach doesn't drag? IMG_0810 by Traveling Koolie, on Flickr I'm dog watching this mini doxie over the weekend of my neighbors (it was their parents dog but now their parents aren't doing well and they have the dog until one of their brothers takes her) and she's just so sad. Her name is Brandy and she's a lump. I don't think she gets any attention really. She doesn't know how to walk on a leash, her chest has no hair and a sore from dragging on the ground and she doesn't know how to play. She loves carrots so I cut them up tiny and had her chasing me around the yard to get them and that actually turned into play. I think she surprised herself. I tried to take her for a walk down the street and she just will not walk on a leash. By the third visit she's managed to get halfway down the street before refusing.

I know that the majority of dogs live in homes that love them but don't really walk them, or play with them or ever take them anywhere and the dogs live happy lives and I'm cool with that. I guess she just makes me sad because she can't even be comfortable moving because of her weight and the way she kinda lit up when she figured out that she was playing was super sad. And when I went to leave the third time she followed me to the door like "Hey fun person, don't leave!" And I know the living situation has been far from ideal since she's being moved around and there are larger concerns like their parents health. But she's just SOOOO fat.
