When you welcome a smol awoo into your home and heart, you don’t want to think about the day when it grows up and loses its puppy fat. But the day comes when your pupper grows into a dog. And keeps growing. And growing. And doesn’t stop. You check the Canine Instruction Manual that came with your pet and you finally realize—aha! You forgot it’s one of those giant dog breeds that make you think Clifford, the Big Red Dog might be real.

However, just because a dog is big, it doesn’t mean that it has to be obese (aka a chonky chonk). All jokes aside, if you want your family pet to live a long and happy life, it’s vital that you help it stay lean and avoid entering the ‘overweight zone’ which requires extra effort on your part.

As an avid reader, I always like to read about as much as I could and share those stories among my circle. My hobbies stretches to many areas of studies such as meteorology, marine biology, information technology, movie critics etc. I am from a beautiful hill city in Sri Lanka called Kandy which is rich in cultural and historical artifacts.
