37. I wish my parents would adhere to this.
Their poor dog is so huge and it's because of the amount they feed him. And no matter how many times I tell my parents that they should reduce his intake and up his exercise, they won't do it. They feel bad about it now since he's used to the excess. It makes me really mad.
