Please Don't Feed the Daisy: Living, Loving, and Losing Weight with the World's Hungriest Dogby Beverly West
Synopses & Reviews
When Jason moves in with Bev, it's supposed to be temporary. But then Daisy the Chihuahua comes to stay. Just two-and-a-half pounds when they adopt her, Daisy is a charmer. And soon, an eater. Hot on her heels comes Elvis the pug, and then, of course, their puppies Instead of losing her baby weight, after giving birth to four puppies, Daisy gets even chubbier and soon outgrows even her fattest fat sweaters. Bev and Jason decide it's time for everyone, including the two of them, to pull together, lead a healthier life-style--and in the process become a family (albeit an unconventional one).
Please Don't Feed the Daisy is the wickedly funny, remarkably useful story of their journey toward becoming that family, and a fit one to boot. Packed with yummy, fun, diet- and earth-friendly recipes for both dogs and people, as well as training tips and the Happily Ever After Maintenance Plan, this is a heartwarming and healthy tale for dog- (and food-) lovers everywhere.
Describes how the relationship shared by the co-authors and their dogs resulted in four puppies and prompted unhealthy cycles of overeating in both humans and canines, in an account complemented by earth-friendly recipes that relates their subsequent efforts to embrace healthier lifestyles. 50,000 first printing.
When Jason moved in with Bev, it was supposed to be temporary. This is, until Daisy the chihuahua came to stay. Hot on her heels came Elvis the pug, and then, of course, their puppies When Daisy is unable to drop the post-pregnancy pounds, and her health is in danger, Bev and Jason pull together to lead a healthier life-style--and become a family (albeit an unconventional one) in the process. Their new life is based on an enhanced appreciation of the moment, a healthier approach to food and fun, and the constant company of their pets, who are living reminders of the transformative power of unconditional love. Along with approximately 30 photographs, sprinkled throughout the narrative are healthy food and drink recipes for pets and people (Scrambled Egg and Sunshine and The Low-Carb Lowball), dog-training tips (How to handle your pet at the vet), and a diet and exercise plan (Take a Walk on the Wild Side).
