A pudgy puppy is on the final leg of his weight loss journey.
Obie the dachshund had tipped the scales at 77 pounds, but has since lost 40 pounds since August 2012.
Because the dramatic weight loss left little Obie with large amounts of loose, hanging skin, his caretaker took him to the vet for a "puppy tummy tuck".
More than 2 pounds of loose skin were removed and little Obie is said to be doing fine.
