Don't worry, this is the before picture.

Can you imagine losing 75 percent of your body weight in less than two years? It seems unthinkable, but this poor little dachshund (and I use the word "little" more figuratively than literally) managed to do it with the help of a new owner who put the morbidly obese dog on a strict regimen of diet and exercise, instead of human food and continuous treats like he was getting from his previous owner.

The results are startling and kind of inspirational. This dog went from a seriously depressing 56 pounds to a slim and healthy 13 pounds. I never thought I'd find myself jealous of a dachshund. A Weimaraner maybe, but never a dachshund:
