Obie, the Overweight Dog, Inspires Others

Obie is obese, but he's on a diet and has lost 12 pounds in just seven weeks!  That would be an achievement for anyone, but it's even more amazing when you consider Obie is a 5-year-old daschund.

The lovable dog with the liquid chocolate eyes joined us, along with his new owner Nora Vanatta. She shared how he's helping inspire others, including both pets and people, to lose weight.   Originally tipping the scales at 77 pounds, Obie is now down to 65 pounds.
