This video is not funny or exciting. The more I watched it, the more I though, 'Wow, that poor puppy.' Meet Obie the obese Dachshund. Apparently, he's on a mission to lose some weight. More specifically, the dog needs to drop 40 lbs. That's a whole lot for a small breed dog.

From Obie's owner, who is chronicling their pet's weight loss journey:

Obie is a 5 year old standard dachshund who is on a mission to lose about 40 pounds. His current weight is 77lbs. His owners were no longer capable of caring for him and relinquished him. He is in a new home and on a weight loss program. His blood work is normal and he is otherwise healthy. Please follow his journey on FB; Biggest Loser, Doxie Edition.
