A fifth of dogs and a quarter of cats in America were classified as obese, reported Harper’s Weekly Review on Feb. 7. "I didn't notice the weight creeping on," said an Atlanta woman of her dog, Dodger. "All of a sudden he was just this fat dog."
Apparently dogs eat well while a 2010 USDA report shows that 16.2 million kids in America struggle with hunger and the most current U.S. Census Bureau statistics tell us that 15.7 million children (21.6%) in America live in poverty.
