I've been feeding her diet food provided by the shelter, in the quantities recommended for weight loss, and as you know we have been going on good walkies for exercise. When you see a dog every day though, it's hard to notice changes in weight and I didn't think we had been making much progress.
When I first got Lady, her weight was 76 pounds--quite the sum for a medium-sized pooch! When we brought her in the other day, she was down to 68! Surpassing her goal of 6-8 pounds! I was so proud of her.
If you look at pictures from when I first got her and compare them to the present, I guess you really can see a difference.

Yay, Lady! I know, it stinks to be on a diet. But you'll thank me for this someday, trust me.
Meanwhile, Fozzie's been working on his own diet plan.
If something says "LITE," you can eat as much of it as you want!
Don't worry Fozzie, I don't think you're that fat. You can take a load off and relax.
