Pet pride doesn't have to mean a proud pet, says Lindy


I'm not too proud to eat while lying down, says Lindy. I'll eat any time, anywhere!



    "It's more comfortable this way. I don't have to bend as far," says Lindimus Maximus, the eatingest dog in the western world.
    Lindy loves to eat, and we have to be careful not to give her any fattening food. She gets healthy made-in-Alberta dry dog food for breakfast and supper, served with water on it because she doesn't like to drink water, unless she's been for a long walk. For lunch, she gets large Lindy-colored crunchables we buy from the veterinary clinic because they are good for her teeth.
    In between, she snacks on raw vegetables: broccoli florets and stems, cauliflower florets and stems, cucumber slices, zucchini slices, lettuce wedges, an occasional carrot (gotta watch the sugar), sometimes rutabaga (gotta watch the carbs), squash skins (she loves squash, but carbs, remember) and sweet potato skins (ditto). In the morning and at night she gets a big spoonful of fat-free plain yogurt, plus a probiotic capsule for her digestive system.
    Lindy doesn't believe there are happy, healthy, family dogs in this world who only get fed once a day, but who drink water throughout the day because they are active outdoors. Lindy is inactive indoors, so it's a good thing her daddy takes her for a long walk every day.

Okay, Lindy, I'll tell him "hi" from you. Okay, I'll ask him that, too, if you insist.
"Hi Bozo, this is Lindy. I'm back again. Did you miss me?"

Hi Lindy :)
ma allora sei proprio comoda....
io bevo tanta acqua perchè ho sempre sete... infatti quando andiamo in montagna e con il mio babbo umano e facciamo delle lunghe passeggiate, devo sempre portarmi la borraccia piena d'acqua dietro !!!
Io sono un chow-chow ed ho bisogno sempre di avere a mia disposizione tanta acqua !!!
Ciao :)))

Oh ROFL! Kay. Lindy is a TREAT. And I hope she's not pining too much for you. I LOVE that she eats so healthily. She would LOVE Angie who loves to eat. Good on you for caring for your good friend so well. Hope you're having a great trip. Blessings and (((hugs))) Jo (PS thanks for the comments - I appreciate them seeing as you ARE on holiday!)

She's beautiful and obviously of Graeco-Roman extraction, though her 'couch' doesn't look so accommodating.
Gus lies down to eat when he's satisfied the first pangs of hunger . . .

Lindy got a good family to look after, That's why her duty is just...keep eating !!!! She don't need to beware because her dad and her mom aready be very careful to feed.

Lindy is truly a beautiful dog. I'd love to eat lying down like the Romans, but then I'd end up with GERD. Ah well... Lucky Lindy. My granddaughter should learn to eat veggies from Lindy.

She doesn't seem to be starving, for sure.

Not a care in the world that Lindy! My cats certainly don't eat like that: too scared that one of the others will butt in and take their food!

The Chair Speaks said...

LOL! Lindy, you sure know how to relax and eat!

My dog Lady likes to recline, Roman style, while she's eating.
