Puppy Can’t Break Soda Habit
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Scraps the dog has been trying for months to cut back on his caffeine and sugar intake. But he’s learned the hard way that forbidden fruit does taste the sweetest.
Although friends and family have supported Scraps in his efforts to quit, he has backslid on multiple occasions.
“He’s a fiend for Dr. Pepper,” roommate Michelle Dobbs said. “I came into the kitchen one day and found him rolled over, trying to drink every drop out of the last can we had. It was pathetic, really.”
The pup’s inability to kick the soda habit isn’t for lack of trying. He spent some time last month visiting a nutritionist, with the unfortunate name Chrissy Pepper.
"She had a name plate on her office door reading ‘Dr. Pepper,’" said Dobbs. "Needless to say, Scraps couldn;t handle it."
