Great news! Obie the obese dachshund has shed something like 30 pounds in his drive (okay, well, his owner’s drive) to get him down to a more manageable 35lbs or so.

Obie has lost more than 30lbs (but he doesn’t look happy about it)

According to the article he’s going to need a big skin tuck to get rid of all that extra space he made to carry the weight of a Labrador in his dachshund body, but then he should be just fine!

The article has pictures that show him eating. I don’t think he was on the same diet as Jared Fogle from those Subway ads.
