Skinny Molly ..

Post by Dave »

For those following the saga of Molly being overweight , now she's almost Skinny :!: [img][img]http://img488.imageshack.us/img488/612/p51604392iu.th.jpg[/img][/img] [img][img]http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/5180/p71002499at.th.jpg[/img][/img]
I am so proud of her . She was so revved up after getting groomed that she wouldn't hold still on the scale , but we think she weighs about 45 lbs. That is 49 lbs. less than she started last July :!: :P Dave

This is truely amazing! What a great job you've done. Now, if only a person could lose half of their body weight in a year, you'd be rich! The haircut is adorable.

Good golly, Miss Molly! She looks fabulous, Dave! What a great job you've done with her. She's got a whole new lease on life and a great "Dad" to boot!

WOW! WOW! and WOW! :mrgreen:

That is truly remarkable. What made her lose weight the best . . . diet, excercise or both?

So, is she a member of the family now? Hard to adopt her out after investing that much love and care into her.

I actually used Science Diet Perscription weight loss food along with twice daily walks and runs off leash . She got veggies for treats and I suplemented her diet with various other foods in small amt. to balance her diet . She lost more than most Brittany weigh :D I decided to keep her after about 8 weeks . I truly have an attachment to her . She has the personality to go with that huge size , although it didn't shrink like she did :lol: Now I wonder if all that skin will eventually tighten up :?: She is like a Blood Hound :P Dave

She looks terrific, Dave! You are a great dog-dad! :D My new guy Beau (previously called Kozmo) weighed 62 pounds when I got him, and I thought THAT was fat! He actually waddled when he walked; poor guy. Now he is 47, and the vet says 5 more to go. Glad Molly is going to get to stay with you. Lucky dog!

Update

Post by Dave »

Molly weighs 45 lbs. now and has leveled off at that amt. :) She has her shaggy winter coat so she looks bigger . The problem is I can really feel her ribs :shock: . Along her backbone is fine and her hips aren't poking out , in fact she has huge flank muscles from packing that 94 lbs. Her legs are big , as are her feet . Her ribcage circumferance is almost twice Levi's :o I'm going to tape measure her chest . Anyway I'm still proud of her , even if she's convinced we are starving her :roll: :lol: Dave
