Animated Pet Obesity

This is a great encapsulation of everything my waistline is going through.

Beyond being a wonderful snippet of Americana, the dog is perfectly animated, showing a great snapshot into this animal's life without fussing with any camera movements. Bravo.

Fat Dog! Fat Dog!

Very well done. It definately captures the natural dog instinct / behaviour. My dog isn't even allowed to look at me when I'm eating, or he's in the dog house! Thanks.

I sure love those noises made when the food hits the gullet.

Good animation! I think this is an excellent example of why you shouldn't feed your pets people food. Though, to be fair, we would give our dog the ham bone with plenty of ham on it for Christmas, but that was the only time he was allowed to have people food.
