America is fat. This we know. But America is now so fat, even our pets are joining the obesity epidemic.

A fat cat gets stuck in dog door trying to steal food. The FDA approves a doggy diet pill. A walrus does a better job getting in shape than half of America.

Over 3 million dogs in the U.S. are considered obese, with nearly 20 million more overweight. Whodathunkit that it'd be possible for so many dogs, so energetic and full of life, to become obese. Maaaybe (just a wild guess here) it's because 65% of adults in the U.S. are overweight and probably don't take Fido out for as many walks as they should. Yet they continue to get dogs, only to raise them in household where they probably sit on the couch with their owner, who's watching Desperate Housewives and snacking on ice cream.

And the really sad thing is that even though it says on the bottle "NOT FOR HUMAN USE," you know at least a few poor souls will try to take it rather than just taking their dog out for a walk.
