Just call me Slim

We adopted Trux last November, 
a portly 77 pound Aussie/Border Collie. 

November '08

summer '09

We're happy to report, after months of twice daily walks and lots of playing ball (not to mention chasing all the rabbits around our property!) Trux is down to 57 pounds....a much healthier weight for his breed.

Trux is brilliant. Note to me, must remember to chase rabbits if I want to shed some pounds... xv

You could patent that diet: 'rabit chasing in the desert' :-). Many thanks. Well done Trux!

Greetings from London.

Note to self: "I must chase Trux whilst Trux chases rabbits."

Wow, that's super. Good for him. Chasing rabbits must be a lot easier now.

Wow DD....it's almost harder to put a dog on a diet than ourselves. Good for you AND Trux!

You are such a good dog momma! He's probably a lot happier and energetic at that weight.

Kathy said...

Beautiful and healthier dog! Good for you. My son here has an Aussie and my son in Colorado has Border. Both awesome dogs! We will be dog sitting the Aussie in a few days for a week and then heading out to visit my son and the border the next week. :)

Congrats Trux!

You've managed to, single paw-edly,

Onya Trux! I think I may need to send my chubby Sophie your way to chase rabbits! :)
