Did you know that dogs can get fat?
I’ve never met a fat dog before, but I’ve heard that they can get pretty big. Of course, I’ve seen plenty of overweight humans, but dogs? No way!
At least, that’s what I thought. However, a few months ago, I noticed quite a bit of junk in my trunk. My human called it a “badonkadonk,” but trust me, it’s not as delightful as it sounds. Every time we go for a walk, my butt shakes back and forth like it’s made of rubber! It’s like I have two giant balls back there!
Anyway, I wasn’t going to let a little weight gain slow me down. As a corgi, it’s my duty to represent my breed with all the style and grace I can muster. After all, we’re associated with royalty! If we’re good enough for the queen of England, we need to be in top physical condition.
Unfortunately, the problem is that I’m kind of lazy. While my human and I do go for walks every day, I can’t go for very long. I know that’s not normal for my breed, but I guess I’ve gotten soft – hence the weight problem.
Thankfully, my human watches exercise videos to stay in shape. They seem to work well for her, so I figured that they could work well for me. I just need to follow a four-step plan to get my butt back down to size.
- Step One: Get Sweat Bands – Yes, I know that dogs don’t sweat, but everyone in these videos wears them, and they don’t seem to sweat either. I think it’s all about appearance and motivation.
- Step Two: Work Out Those Legs! – While my “badonkadonk” is the problem, I’ve heard that the best way to tone the butt is by working out the legs. Even better, I don’t need to move around while doing it! Instead, I’m targeting my muscles and fat with pinpoint precision.
- Step Three: Go for More Walks – Although I love the sights, sounds, and smells of our daily walk, I don’t love how tired it makes me. Nonetheless, I need to push myself to go further, faster, and harder! This butt isn’t going to tighten itself!
- Step Four: Get Compliments – I’ve only just started on my fitness campaign, but I can see all the other dogs at the park staring at me. I even see some humans staring at me. It’s weird, but I’ve gotten used to it. Only a few more months, and I’ll be ready for my close-up!
