My mom is the proud owner of a nine month old tri-colored Cavalier named Lewis. I called her yesterady to check-up, and I was horrified to learn that she and Lewis had just returned from their weekly trip to McDonalds. She buys him his own Junior Mac every Sunday!!! Her response to my outrage was, "But he likes hamburgers." I said, "Mom, you cannot feed him hamburgers! Cavaliers are already prone to heart problems." Unfortunately, she is not a woman to be reasoned with.
Sadly, my mom lost her beloved labrador retriever after he escaped her yard and was hit by a car about two years ago. Lewis is the first dog to capture her heart again. I know she would never intentionally hurt him, but the McDonalds hamburgers just do NOT seem like a good idea. Am I overreacting?
