Welcome to the third installment of the Biggest Loser - Pet Edition!

I'm not sure how accurate the first weigh in was for Addie so we used a different scale at our vet office today. My guess is that she has lost a few pounds. Cutting back on treats and increasing her exercising has really helped!

Keep up the great work everyone! And we would like to send a special thanks to all of our supporters! With your help we are going to get healthy!
Tip of the Week
Do something special for your pooch this week. Give them a massage! During Lucie's puppy class, we learned how to stretch and massage her. It is relaxing for your pup and gets your dog use to being touched all over which can be beneficial when visiting your vet. If you have never done this before, please check out this informative article at called Dog Massage.

Sometimes you lose and sometimes you gain. As long as you are feeling OK with yourself. That massage sounds like something the crazy old bat should learn.

Lorenza said...

Congratulations Addie!
You were the Biggest Loser this week!
You all are doing a good job!
Go! Go!
Kisses and hugs

Checkers said...

congrats on the weight loss Addie - the massage thing is good for doggies - every night mommy massages all 4 of my pays and gives me good ear rubs - this makes it much easier for me at the vet and when I go to the groomer because I'm used to being touched there - we learned this trick in obedience school......unfortunately I did not do so well with the obedience thing! Hey I'm cute - I don't need to be obedient.

Suzuki said...

Congratulations Addie!
I'm still a fatty :( I blame Mum though BOL
Big licks to you

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

Well done, Addie! We notiec that some of the other woofies have been a little.. less successful?

Your Friends,
Tommy and The Girls

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Addie,
Our om likes to massage us too but the only problem is that Hershey does not want her to stop and will keep rolling over or prodding mom's hands to make her continue with the massage! LOL!!

Simba and Jazzi said...

We are busy catching up with everyone after our weekend away.

Domi said...

Good job to everyone for trying whether you lost weight or not. It's hard for a dog to turn down a treat. My girl says I'm way too bony so feel free to send your extra treats to me so you won't be tempted :)

Tail wags,

Ludo van Doggy said...

Keep up the great work efurrypup. Don't worry about going the wrong way Suzuki, sometime you need to go backwards a bit afore you can go forwards.

Hi Addie!
It looks like you and the other contestants are doing a great job so far! I just got "The Postcard" from my Vet saying it's almost time for me and The Cat to go in for a check up. I hope they don't notice the little extra chub I've acquired!

Dina ... UK said...

To all the pups, congratulations on the weight lose....

I can say Holly loves a massage,
that is what nanny's are for?
Try stroking the coat the opposite
way, they love it..:-)

Stanislaw said...

Oh my feasting! Cutting back on FOOD? Oh no!

I have the opposite problem - I don't keep on enough weight. It's part of the reason for my special diet. Without it I whither away to nothing. SO NOT beastly!

Good luck with your challenge!

Nibbles Treats said...

Suzuki seems to be going the wrong way. Great job everyone!
