I Embarrassed My Husband

So, how do you deal with a fat dog that only walks towards the house?



Yep, that’s right. When we took the kids for a bike/stroller ride this evening, I plopped the fat dog on the stroller’s bench seat. She rode until we got to the end of the street, then I took her down and made her walk back.

We passed a few other people walking normal dogs on the way down the street. Sean was mortified. If he could have, I think he would have pretended not to know me. Whatever. It worked.

Later this evening, I took her out again and actually got her to walk both directions down the street. This may be easier than I expected!

  1. Wow – she is big, eh? She’s a cutie – so is the boy in the stroller! ;o)

  2. Oh, Jill, you have no idea. The scary thing is, for the first coulple of years of her life we called her “Twiggy” because she was so tiny under all of her hair. Shih tzu’s are notorious for being overeaters. Not all–our male is trim–but it is common. Be prepared, this could be Maggie’s future!

  3. Thanks so much for your thoughts. Having good friends helps at this time. There’s nothing anyone can do except just keep me in mind and be there if I need it and I know I have all that whenever I need it in Ohio. Hope all is well with your family.
