Congrats To Wisconsin For Being #1 In US For Overweight Male Dogs
In the United States for overweight male dogs, congratulations to Wisconsin for being number one.
When Did Fat Dogs Become A Thing
When I was growing up, my family always had a pet dog. We owned Alaskan Malamutes, so they were already big animals. Of course, they were spoiled so our canines were chunky. I do not remember it ever being an issue. The veterinarian never said anything about it. I just thought it meant that they were well taken care of and happy animals. Apparently, it is not a good thing anymore, especially for their health. I can understand that now.
Wisconsin Resident Stereotype
Now, if you are from Wisconsin please do not get upset with me. I was not the creator of this stereotype of people from Wisconsin. In some circles, it is believed that many residents live on a diet of brats, cheese, and beer which makes them larger than the average American. That certainly can have an impact on their pets.
