This is Obie, a 77 pound dachshund who’s on a mission to lose about 40 of those pounds. After his original owners couldn’t take care of him any longer, his new family is trying to whip him into shape.
Kudos to Obie’s new owner, Nora Vanatta, for trying to get him into shape. It’s kind of depressing when one of these adorably fat pets immediately dies after the Internet gets wind of him, so I’m putting all of my eggs in Obie’s basket. You can do it, buddy. I’d give you a belly rub, but my arms are neither long enough nor do they contain the muscular endurance required to do so. But still! (via Hypervocal)
