Last September, we brought you the story of Obie, the dachshund who weighed 77 pounds. After his elderly owners could no longer care for him, was entrusted to Nora Vanatta, who designed a program to help Obie get healthy. Nine months later, Obie weighs a svelte 29.8 pounds! In April, he had 2.5 pounds of skin removed that he no longer needed. You can read about Obie's incredible progress on his Facebook page and at his website. Link -via reddit
