Food issues

Hey, I'm having food issues and mom's not sure but what's bringing it all on.

I've always had my food bowl with kibble in it on the floor and I would eat as I was problems.
Now for the past couple weeks...I eat everything that she puts in the bowl. She'll refill it and I eat it all again.
She says I'm getting fat and it isn't good to eat like this.

So now I have my food bowl put down in the morning and evening. Do you guys eat with your food bowls up or down?


  1. We eat breakfast and dinner. Mom measures and fixes our food and puts it down. I, Mabel, scarf mine right down. Hazel takes longer to eat so they have to pick me up other wise I will zoom in and try to eat Hazel's food. Pugs can easily get over weight so this works really well for us. Mom monitors our weight and can easily adjust our food up or down.

  2. We would love to have a bowl of food on the floor for us all day. But we get fed morning and night. We finish our bowls at each serving. It works best for us too just like Hazel and Mabel. We would probably eat and eat and eat if we had free access to food. Hope you can get it all figured out.

  3. My food is down all day and night. I don't eat it cause I am holding out for the good stuff my dad feeds me. Drives my Mom crazy. I eat my kibble so then dad thinks I am starved and gives me what ever he is eating. Oh and don't tell my mother but when she is at work on the weekends oh yeah I party like a rock star and me and dad go to the burger joint down the street. My ma called me beached whale. My dad falls for my sad eye look. Iam pleading the 5th.

  4. We used to have our bowls down all the time, but then Jessie had to go on special food for her kidney problems and Momma doesn't want me to eat it because it's too expensive to feed to both of us! So now we get fed breakfast and dinner.

  5. Tell your mom to change the recipe to something you detest.

  6. We also get breakfast and dinner. Mama says she used to leave the food down all day when it was just Bilbo and Dory UNTIL, when Dory was 6 or 7, she did the same thing you are doing...maybe it's an age thing or maybe you are exercising more in the snow??

    We sure hope you and your Mama figure it out!

  7. We get fed twice -morning and night. Da leftover food (if there is any) is left down unless da cats are eating it.

  8. I get 3 meals per day and as soon as my bowl is empty the mama throws it in the dishwasher... because I play bowl-ing with it ;O)

  9. I wish I could have food available to me all day long but mom thinks that I would eat the entire bag if given the opportunity.

  10. Food bowl down and it holds a big supply too! That is odd that suddenly you are eating like our mom!

  11. Katy steals anything available so we feed the girls in separate areas. However, when Bailey was an only dog he had his bowl down all day long as he was a slow eater. That being said fast or slow they all get their food measured out twice a day and that is all they get per vet's orders. Shelties are prone to joint issues if they gain weight so the measuring cup keeps us honest when those adorable faces stare up at us.

  12. I only eat breakfast and dinner and there are a few treats in-between DakotasDen

  13. My bowl stays down, but I only get food put in it at meal times. I have a liver disease and my foodibles is monitored. SHE takes my daily amount and divides it by 4. I get brekky, lunch, din din and nite nite snack. The total is the same but I don't get sickies if I eats small meals.

  14. My bowl is on the floor too but I never miss a chance to snag a cherrio from mom.
    I hope by now you have it figured out!
    Hugs madi and mom
