Sparkey was surfing the net today and came across a blog entry by a fellow canine. Said canine was quite miffed with his "maternal unit" for initiating a weight loss program which includes cessation of pancakes and cookies forthwith. Sparkey was up in arms about such culinary abuse, and Tina chimed in that she just might call the ASPCA. Come to think of it, Tina is equally distubed at her own decreased amounts of food on offer, and does her determined best to eat anything that Sparkey deigns to leave in his bowl. That said, Tina has consequently regained some of her girlish figure of late (much to her dismay), due to her parental units' watchful eyes and calorie counting.
As other dogs are put on diets, Sparkey's parental units do everything in their power to have him eat, and he certainly does oblige. While his ravenous appetite may be due, in large part, to the enormous amounts of protein lost in his urine due to kidney failure, he loves the taste of barbecued chicken and rice.
