I lost some as well, enough to be able to button a pair of black jeans that I haven't been able to fit into since 2005. That's button as in no sucking in the gut to button button. In fact, they fall off me if I don't wear a belt.

But Nanners was the goal, not me.

Nice job Nanners! Maybe she should write a doggie weight loss book. I would read a diet book from the dog's perspective.

Very nice Fontucky. Your pet and pocket book will thank you in potentially reduced vets bills. Biggest plus in a healthy dog. I bet it was tough going there for a while. I know when I put our lab on a diet to lose 20lbs the biggest hurdle was retraining my kids.

Any problem with Nanners swallowing things to fill the empty void in her belly? I had the problem with Brutus during his diet, for about a month he kept swallowing the girls ankle socks. they were small enough to swallow then he would puke them up or poop them out.

Yes, I do have a problem with her swallowing things.... things such as bags of cookies, Fritos, hot dog buns etc when they're left within reach. She never did that before. I had to retrain myself to put everything out of reach, like with a little toddler and household chemicals.

I can't get mad at her, because she's responding to the most ancient part of her brain, the "I'm starving" part. She's NOT starving, but she doesn't know that.
