Life is unfair

I never knew how unfair life can be, until the arrival of Helios.

Just because he's 'Growing', he gets to eat and eat and eat.... a LOT. Look what my M has been trying to cheat me out of!

A typical brunch. Can you guess which bowl is mine?

The one on the RIGHT! Helios is eating apples, yoghurt AND fish, and a whole bowl full at that. What do I get??? Some miserable pieces of apples, soup from the steamed fish and yoghurt! And they think I can't tell the difference?!!?

And don't let me start about dinner. Look how unfair the portions are!

If you can't see clearly, here's a better view. In case you didn't realise, I get more vegetables than him because I'm supposed to be on a 'DIET'.

See the red line? See the amount he gets that exceeds the red line??!!?

Just because he's growing, he's eating about 1kg of meat a day, and that's not including vegetables! And me? I get a miserly 200g of meat per day.

And from eating all that much, he isn't growing a lot anyway. Helios wants me to post his latest growth update.

Compared to 2 weeks ago, he only gained about 2kg. But he's eaten at least 14kg of meat, where did the rest of the food go?? I tell you, it's a waste of food feeding him that much if he's not going to show some results from the food.

I don't care, I'm a growing boy too and I demand my fair share of food!

(M: Actually, Herbie really can't tell the difference in the amount of food given. Maybe it's because he's a slower eater so they finish at about the same time, or he's only slightly earlier.)

'Dear God, Please do not let my mum get me a little brother or a sister'.......

Maggie said...

This is totally unfair! The same thing happens at my house! How come new-comers get more than us *ahem* senior doggies?! Should we go on strike Herbie? Let me know, okay?

Love ya lots,

Hi Herbie,
It does seem quite unfair. I think you need to convince your Mom she'll be better off spending her money (food) on you rather than feeding Helios.

is he bulimic???? check if he is running to the toilets immediately after food!!!! oh!! and whether he has bad breath from all the puking!!! tsk tsk tsk... kids these days... :P

But Herbie, your little brothr is a growing young man. Of course he needs more food than you well partly is also becoz you're over weight & usually older dogs, need less coz they're already fully grown. Don't worry my friend, one day when Helios becomes very over weight, you'll see more food for you than for him! heeeheee...

Love licks,

Herbie, you should eat faster & then get ya mouth into Helious bowl !!!

Sophie Brador said...

Herbie, You are clearly being horribly abused with that fresh food. And in a personalized bowl besides! How dare they treat you this way. I will volunteer to eat every one of your meals for you, if you simply can't cope any longer. That's just the kind of girl I am.
