Obie the obese dog works toward weight loss


A portly pooch named Obie weighed 77 lbs., twice the weight of an average dachshund, before being taken in by a foster mom who aims to help him lose 30 to 40 lbs. With dietary changes since coming to Nora Vanatta’s home, Obie is averaging a weight loss of two pounds a week, and will soon add a workout regimen.
