Fat dog and dog owner go on a diet, win award for weight loss

Awwww… this story is great. Alyson King and her dog Lucky lost a combined 100 pounds! And they worked together, so that makes me happy. So many pets are overweight and their owners think they’re doing them a favor, but it’s actually shortening their pet’s life and giving them health problems. The best thing you can do for your pet is to keep them on a good diet and keep them at a healthy weight!

I like the dog’s Kim Kardashian pose from the back, looking over his shoulder. VERY FIGURE FLATTERING. Good thing he doesn’t have to worry about that anymore since he’s a skinny-mini! via BBC news:

An overweight Labrador and his owner have shed 7st (44kg) between them, to land the pet an animal charity’s slimming champ of the year title. Lucky came top in the slimming stakes after losing 5in (13cm) from his waistline, and his weight fell by about 2st (13kg).


Ms King said that before his diet, Lucky had struggled to walk properly and hated all forms of exercise. Ms King said: “Now he runs and jumps around, which he wasn’t able to do before. As the weight has dropped off, he’s become much more energetic.”

Biscuit-loving Lucky before he went on his diet and fitness regime. “He certainly keeps me in check – if he thinks it’s time for walkies, he starts whining at me so I don’t forget. It’s been a real weight-loss journey for both of us.”

Without his “no treats” diets and the extra exercise, the nine-year-old is unlikely have survived much longer, according to PDSA vets, who drew up a food and fitness regime for him.

He should be the next Jenny Craig spokesperson!
