Dear Deefor

Dear Deefor,
I am being starved to death in captivity. On nights I go to school and eat hot dogs I come home to half a cup of kibble! I am wasting away! How can I get more foodies?


Dear Dexter

That's awful. Humans eat all the time and put us on a diet! I learned from my evil brother Arrow that being bad gets you treats. I used to be good and NEVER got treats. Now when we go for walkies all the dogs follow my mom cause she has so much good stuff in her pockets. Cause we’re bad.

Arrow doesn’t like to come when called, so now my mom calls him with a treat in her hand! He used to poop in the house till she started giving him pieces of hamburger or hot dog when he did it outside. He gets treats for everything. (And to be fair, I do too!)

When the humans call you or say Sit or whatever, just look at them like you don’t really understand. Don’t do it unless they get out the treats.

Good luck.


P.S. Hope you are feeling better.

Dear Deefor,
Why am I so skinny? I eat constantly. All the dogs in my neighborhood say I’m anorexic. I even eat stuff off the counters and out of the garbage. I exercise a lot. What can I do to bulk up?

Dear Skinny Bones,
Don’t worry about what the other doggies think. If you’re happy (and not hungry) ignore them. You look great.

hi Deefor, you are giving excellent advice as usual. eating is one of our favorite subjects. what we would like to know is why is Baxter ... ah... well... kind of chunky and Brody is a twig? it's just not fair, we say. and we hardly ever get treats - except for those cheeseburgers on our birthdays. hee hee.

Ahhhhh Deefor! What great advice you give! You should have your own column in a newspaper! Hehehehe! You could be a writer for all of the doggie kennels! I hope everyday that I get human food, and it never works!

Deefor - You are so smart! Plus I overheard Momma saying that she is looking forward to the time when I am well enough behaved on walkies that she doesn't have to carry treats! Yes! The solution is to be a bad dog!

Our Mom uses those treats to get us to come too. Louie is really good at "come" all Mom or Dad has to do is wave their arm. Callie hasn't been introduced to that training yet but it is coming soon..
