Obie the Dachshund came to our attention in the spring. His previous owners had overfed him, and he swelled up to such an extent that he had difficulty walking.
Now, after losing some of the weight, he's had a surgical tummy tuck to remove two pounds of extra skin. The reason he had so much extra skin: He dropped from a whopping 77 pounds to less than 30 pounds.
His owner, Nora Vanatta, marked dog obesity awareness day this week by posting pictures of the new, fit Obie.
