Michelle Obama wants to talk about dogs

If there’s anything I like talking about more than Obama’s relationship with dogs, it’s this administration’s view of the proper role of government. This story has both. Yay!

Charlie Spiering reports:

During her Google Hangout [Monday], First Lady Michelle Obama reminded the audience that dogs need a proper diet and exercise, just like children do…

“Dogs are no different,” Michelle Obama explained to a woman on the chat. “You want to make sure they are eating a balanced diet, and if they are not an active dog, make sure that their food is reflective of an inactive dog and then get them out there and throw that ball and get them running.”

Well, that explains this, then:

I applaud First Lady Michelle Obama for taking some time out of her busy schedule to remind us all that if you feed your dog too much and don’t give him enough exercise, he’ll get fat.

And it’s her business.
