Would You Call Her Chubby?

Only under my breath

The dog appears to be getting fat. To quote the movie Love Actually: “Ooh, would we call her chubby?”

I think she might be offended when I call her fat when I have to lift her up the stairs on the boat where we live. And obviously, it’s my fault. Cooking and sharing food is how I nurture. People, dogs, anything that eats.
