Winnie Weightwatchers

The dogs, comatose when I was enjoying The Walking Dead  this morning

Message to self
When you own a bulldog who is on a strict diet
Always make sure that the dog feed cupboard has been secured when you go out
I got home this morning 
Only to find that she had broken into Albert's dry "kitty scoffs" quaffing half the box, most of the cardboard packaging as well as wet mouthing a nearby packet of paper doilies

  1. Mmmm, morning munchettes. She's cutting back though, only ate half the box, and cardboard has no calories surely?

  3. Dieting is never easy; even for dogs.

  4. Methinks a nappy is called for - after all that will Winnie be able to make it outside in time...?

  5. Winnie and Suky are SO alike .... in their eating habits as well as their wrinkly faces. We have to watch the dogs eating like hawks, one of the others only has to step away for a breather and Suky is right in their bowl hoovering up whatever she can.

    I managed to get half a kilo off her weight and Lovely Hubby slipped her a few tit-bits and yep, it's right back on there :-(

    1. She's coping generally very well with the diet......me thinks Meg opened the door first and greed took over

  6. Oh and I meant to add, don't dogs just love it when you settle down to watch a bit of tele in the daytime, straight on the sofa with you for a nap. I guess it's a good excuse to down tools for a while if you can't move for furry bodies !!

  7. Winnie is a cracker!

  8. She certainly has the look of a dog who should be on a strict diet - but let's just hope she doesn;t develop a passion for Scotch eggs - otherwise both of you are doomed.

  9. I'm sure if she knew she was on a diet....she would have scoffed them anyway!
    (love it when you include pics of the welshies. Elsie is so much like them - in looks and habits.)

  10. Poor girl...so hungry.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well, at least she's getting lots of fiber in those doilies. :)

  12. nice that the dogs gave you some peace to watch WD...does Winnie like green beans? we always added them to dog food when they had to be on a diet...such a loveable gal...

  13. I know how she feels

  14. Just be glad she's not big enough to stand up and pull things off the counter. When ever I see footprints on the backsplash I know mine have been investigating again.

  15. Poor Winnie! You are starving the poor little mite! I thought you were an animal lover - at least that's what I heard in the pub near Sheffield railway station!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I feel your pain, Winnie. Losing weight is hard no matter what species you belong to.

    So, what did you think of the season premier of WD, John?

  17. I can relate...a girl has to do what a girl has to do.

  18. Perhaps the doilies were desert after that fine meal?

    ReplyDelete
  19. She figured she'd take advantage of the self-serve café that was open after hours.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Some of us are just never full. It's a difficult thing to live with.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, if I listed the things my dear Rosie has scoffed down, the SPCA would be at my door in a heartbeat. Though she doesn't normally eat the packaging. Once she ate a fortune cookie, leaving behind both the wrapper and the paper fortune, the latter in mint condition on the carpet. (No, I don't remember what it said...)

  22. Looks content to me!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. She's giving you a clear message that you're not feeding her enough, you cruel thing! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. At least she didn't eat Albert.

  26. Paper doilies? You don't crochet your own?

  27. We had a sudden mad dash to hospital 30 miles away last weekend when hubby had his accident and we left a large bag of dried food - 15kg of it - in the hallway. I was astonished, when we returned home a few hours later, that the dogs hadn't touched it!

    1. No, but it was in a bag which could have been opened easily. One of our dogs (they're gundogs) once climbed up on the kitchen work surface and helped herself to a cooked chicken breast which was cooling on top of the cooker! She then had the cheek to complain and whine because it was too hot!

  28. She was hungry !!!

  29. Do Not let her up on the cleaned duvet and bed till it all goes through her pipes.
    I am sure Chris will thank you.

    cheers, parsnip

  30. Fiber in the doilies.

    1. Perhaps she just wanted a cream tea?

  31. Oops. On the other hand, she probably had a longer nap than usual, with that fuller belly.

    1. More sleep than I had today....I feel terrible...and on catch up
      ....

  32. Time for another trip to the pedestrian crossing for a dump?

    (Winnie, not you... although preferably neither, of course).

    One of the good things about being a dog, I suspect, is having no sense of vanity, I suspect (although perhaps Winnie has a false body image and sees herself as a slim slight Pekingese pup?)

    1. She couldn't give a flying fu&k about ANYTHING

      Delete
    2. ...except food, sleep, warmth and a sweaty foot to knaw on?

      But not a care in the world about self-image for sure

  33. Good for her...we all deserve a treat sometimes!

    ReplyDelete
  34. No scones and tea with the doilies? You're getting sloppy, John. Winnie deserves better.

    Love,
    Janie
