A very true but unfortunate fact of life is that none of us can simply eat all that we want. There is no human being on Earth who can do this in a healthy way. The problem is even greater in the dog population. Dogs want to eat anything and everything and they want to do this all of the time.
Placing restrictions on a dog’s diet is not easy or fun.
Eating plays a major role in a dog’s life, so when they don’t get all that they want, they tend to make a fuss about it. That’s exactly what the french bulldog in this video did.
Meet Cashew, the hungry french bulldog.
The name of the dog in this video is Cashew, which oddly enough is a nut you might try to eat more of if you are on a diet. Cashew’s owner was doing the responsible thing that any pet owner would do if their canine friend became overweight. She put them on a diet.
Cashew does not want to go on a diet.
Even human beings who understand completely why they have to go on a diet, don’t enjoy doing so. How much Cashew even understands of this situation is up in the air.
Does Cashew know that his diet is being restricted so that he can lose weight? Does he know this is being done for his own well-being? Probably not.
Cashew voices disapproval of his diet.
In the video, Cashew is shown staring at his food bowl. He is no doubt wishing there was more breakfast in there. Cashew’s owner explains that he’s had his morning meal already, that he is on a diet and that he will get more food later.
Cashew then begins making the most adorable sounds in disapproval.
When it becomes clear that more food would not be appearing in his bowl that morning, Cashew’s entire body and vocal cords respond in objection.
Cashew becomes internet famous.
The video was posted online and quickly became a viral sensation. Cashew would no doubt trade in all the fanfare to simply have a larger breakfast, however.
Video of Cashew’s adorable protest to his diet has been viewed over 20 million times online.
His plight was picked up by the Kelly Clarkson show as well.
Kelly Clarkson thought Cashew’s reaction was so adorable that she brought him and his human counterpart, Jennah, on her show. Jennah explained that Cashew actually has developed several methods of alerting his family about things.
“He mostly throws fits about food, like if I’m not making it fast enough,” Jennah said on the show. “But one of his other quirks is he actually will go over to the floor air vent and bark down it when he has to poop because he wants us to hear his voice even louder and just echo through the whole house.”
Jennah would also explain that they are just trying to keep Cashew healthy and don’t like to refer to him as being on a diet.
“We try to keep him at a lower weight so we call it a ‘lifestyle balance’ instead of a diet,” she said.
