Does your pet need to shed a few? He or she is not alone about one third of dogs are over- weight. If your pooch has packed on some pounds lately know that he or she isn't the only overweight pooch out there. There are 77.5 million pet dogs in the United States and studies estimate that one-quarter to one-third of them are over- weight. A dog's diet has a lot to do with whether he becomes overweight, but it's not the only factor. Older dogs are more likely to become over- weight, as are dogs that are let loose in the backyard to entertain themselves ver- sus those walked by their owners daily. People can con- tribute to their pet dog's obe- sity by feeding them too much, too often. Also certain breeds have an increased risk of becoming overweight dogs. They include: Basset Hounds, Beagles, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels, Dachs- hunds, Dalmatians, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retriev- ers and Shetland Sheepdogs You can tell that your pet dog is becoming overweight by running your hands over his body without applying any pressure. If you can't feel your dog's backbone, ribs or pelvic bones through his skin, you've got an over- weight dog on your hands. You also can visually exam- ine your dog by looking for: A visible waist between the ribs and the hips, when you look at your dog from over- head. A stomach that tucks in, rising up from the bottom of your dog's rib cage to the in- side of his thighs the tummy should not be hanging down. An overweight dog has an increased risk of many health issues, including os- teoarthritis, musculoskeletal disease, oral disease, lame- ness and hyperthyroidism. The Healthy Dog's Diet Follow these dog food guidelines to keep your dog trim: Feed your pup two meals a day at morning and at night. This will prevent him from gorging at a single meal and also prevent grazing if dog food is always available. Pick up the bowl after about a half-hour, even if there is food left. Feed your dog based on breed and activity. Working breeds and active dogs need more food than dogs that are more sedentary. Talk with your veterinarian to deter- mine the right amount. Make sure your dog's diet is well rounded. Dog food needs to contain the right amount of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Commercial dog foods are formulated to supply these nutrients in proper quantities, but be sure to look at the ingredi- ent list. Buy foods that have meat-beef, chicken, lamb or turkey as the first ingredi- ent and rice as the main grain in the formula. Limit table scraps and treats. Dogs love treats, but they should only constitute about 5 percent of their to- tal dietary intake. The rest should come from nutrition- ally complete dog food. How to Help Your Dog Lose Weight If your dog has become overweight, here are ways to help him or her back into shape: Increased physical activ- ity. Take him or her out for more walks and play more active games with him or her like fetch. Increased activity for your dog will help him or her burn more calo- lies and give his metabolism a boost. Put your pooch on a weight-loss plan. Talk with your veterinarian about the best way to cut back your dog's diet while still meeting his nutritional needs. Cut out the treats. Stop feeding your pet any table scraps or treats. Show that love doesn't involve food. Many dogs confuse food with affection, since they usually are receiving treats as praise. Instead of a treat, give him or her a vigorous petting and offer reassuring words. All in all, the approach is the same for dogs as it is for humans to lose weight, dogs need to burn more calories than they ingest by eating less and exercising more. That's all for now! Saint Bernardino Realino by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari As children, one of the earliest saints we became aware of was Saint Bernar- dino Realino for the sim- plest of reasons, his name rhymes, something that will always catch the attention of a child. On his feast day, his name was mentioned by the priest, it registered on us and we repeated it to each other without the full real- ization of who he was. Bernardino was born into a noble family at Carpi (Modena), Italy on Decem- ber 1, 1530; his Christian education and moral values were largely taught to him by his mother. He later at- tended the University of Bo- logna where he studied medicine, three years into his studies, he switched to law and received his doctor- ate in 1563. Bernardino's reputation as a lawyer, his legal brilliance and dedica- tion to his profession spread rapidly and in 1554 he was invited to Naples to assume the position of auditor and lieutenant general and su- perintendent of the fiefs of the marquis of Naples. Later, while in Naples, Bernardino, now 34 years old, met some priests of the Society of Jesus and made an eight- day retreat with them. Dur- ing this retreat, he felt a strong call to the religious life, he decided to give up a promising career as a law- yer and asked the Jesuits for admittance into their So- ciety. He was accepted and ordained a priest in 1567. Bernardino was trans- ferred to Lecce, a small city in southern Italy, where he was sent to found a college. He remained in Lecce for the last 42 years of his life. He was well-known and loved for his work among the residents. He was a model confessor, a power- ful preacher, a diligent (Continued on Page 12) , gILL @UI I@LB $ IUU , 781-286-CASH Per Ounce. 24K lde-WL) Q, We Buy Diamonds, Gold and Silver Jewelryl We Buy Gold and Silver Coins Jl W - gg O,X 345 Broadway, Revere -- EXTRA SPENDING MONEY-- Hours lO-5:3O pm every day.
