Talk to Cassie – Sir Bentley Bulldog

There is nothing better than a

good run every day

I am careful what I eat too.  Healthy food, hopefully straight out of the fridge, as opposed to out of a can or sachet.  Sometimes I get lucky 😉

A little while ago, I spotted Sir Bentley Bulldog waddling across the field from his ancestral pile and collapsing in a heap on my lawn.  He hadn’t got an appointment, but I slotted him in, especially as it didn’t look like he was going anywhere in a hurry.

Sir Bentley Bulldog – all puffed out

I hadn’t seen Sir B since we were about 18-months-old, so it was a bit of a shock to see him in such a state.  He was too puffed out to tell me what the problem was but he didn’t have to explain.  I am very intuitive and he had chubbed up a bit since I last saw him.  It is very awkward telling people that they need to lose weight but sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.  So I was blunt.

“You need to go on a diet Sir B!”  I said gently patting one of his splayed out front legs.  He nodded.  Panting profusely.   His eyes wide in agreement.  “And you need to exercise more.  You have no excuse Bentley, your garden is enormous.”

Poor Sir Bentley Bulldog, despite his pedigree and privilaged upbringing, his family clearly needed educating about a sensible diet for him.  They adore Bentley but tossing him more than just the odd sausage at breakfast, in addition to his giant automatic feeder, was not helpful.

We took Sir B home in the car and his family now have him on a diet.  A sensible diet and a little exercise and he is a much happier boy.  I jog over most days to supervise his workouts.  He may never become the Usain Bolt of the Bulldog world, but he is really trying.

All sorts of horrible things can happen to your dog or cat if he or she is overweight.  Diabetes, heart problems or high blood pressure.

So, please don’t let that happen to yours.
