Intolorant partner... if he's in to emotional blackmail, and by your posting
name I would guess you are still quite young, get rid of the partner.
I doubt a diet will make a huge amount of difference to Buddy's snoring.
Dogs are like men ;-) ...but generally more reasonable, some snore, some
don't. (I know I snore too!)
It is vital though that you get Buddy back in shape. He'll lose life
quality, his life expectancy will be shortened and it's both inhumane &
un-neccessary to let him be like that. Our local vet's, AFAK, have a pet
weight watchers club. Most premium dog food include a 'light' for dogs with
weight control problems and maybe try and slot an extra run in per day ~
which will be good for both of you.

(In the UK 'lugs' or 'lug 'oles' is slang for ears ~ and no dog has a finer
set than my Stone!)
