 h1. Dear readers,
 Whether you're a dog person, a cat person, or neither, this may come as a surprise: According to a post over on the Atlantic website, more than 50 percent of pets in the United States are overweight, and more than 20 percent are obese. An organization in Britain recently offered a get-fit program for pets (with a little help from their owners), and the before-and-after photos of participating animals are pretty amazing.

 Interestingly, this group recommends feeding dogs commercial dog food over home-cooked food. However, the fact that two of the most popular posts on Culinate are about house-made dog chow — Jim Dixon's story about making his own dog food and Laura Grace Weldon's account of creating homemade dog treats — tells me that many pet owners don't want to go that route. 

 Either way, portion size seems key — for pets and for people: That is, one Doggie Square for Fido, and one Old Fashioned Apple Dumpling for the rest of us.
