My son, Stanley Benjamin Frank, is overweight. Approaching obese. He is 19 pounds and should weigh 17. Now, that may not sound like a lot, but it means he was charged with losing 10% of his body weight. My little Muffin Man (as I affectionately call him) has too big of a muffin top.
We were told this tragic news about 6 months ago at the vet. At just 1 year old, Mr. Stanley was already overweight. His sister, the same breed, and the same mother, has always been slightly underweight. But my little boy, he likes to eat.
And he's so darn cute. How can you not give him what he wants?!
And so...my aunt gives him frosting from her cake...
And to our complete shock...he lost 1 pound! Woo hoo!! Way to go Muffin Man! Stanley Benjamin Frank is on his way to being a slim and trim pooch. Or at least a pooch with less of a pooch.
