Too much activity at an unhealthy weight can cause stress to the joints...oh and the ACL!! She is still a puppy...so give her time. It took Vegas 4 to 5 months to drop the weight on the stew alone.
    O No we didn't go far and it was cold last night.... I know I didn't over work her because when she came inside she was running all over and harassing Cooper....she is just lazy. I can tell when she has had enought or is to that point. She has walked farther than what we did yesterday! She is just lazy and stubborn and spoiled and she nows if she slows down and sits she doesn't have to do it.....we will go on walks and Gracie will walk like 3 houses down and she is tired and when we get a little father and she slows down my mom will pick her up...so she knows if she doesn't want to walk she doesn't have to cuz she can get some one to pick her tubby but up. No worries!!! We walked around my house like 5 times....so I know I didn't over work her.. 5 times is not a long distance lol my yard is not big.

    @Libra926 OMG 4-5 months.....You need to get in my moms ear!!! I know she won't keep up the diet for that long.... I am really trying to get her to switch to 4 star fromm too because she has Gracie on Fomm puppy food. She said she is going to switch but she wants to finish the bag of puppy food........Her shih tzu eats the puppy food so she can have it and Gracie can switch......She won't listen to me though. For example I had Gracie from 5-10:30 last night cuz my mom was at a track meet. When I first called my mom to tell her I had her the first thing she says to me.... OMG she is probably hungry did you feed her she is starving...well yes I brought her food with me but she was NOT starving...that was when I gave her a couple handfuls. We were at my aunts at that time and then we came home about 2 hrs later and I gave her the frozen green beans and took a pic and sent it to my mom....She called me and say that better not have been the only thing you fed her!!!!!!!!!!! OMG Seriously I think my mom thinks about Gracie and her eating 24/7! And I know when she went home she gave her food!!

    Introduce her to the Vegas stew diet. It's a high fiber diet and it makes them feel fuller, longer. And...it's basically empty calories, so eat away!!! The difference in Vegas's weight was 15 pounds from his heaviest weight to his lightest weight. His energy increased and he plays so much more. We did this with just food alone. We didn't have to exercise him at all. The only exercise he got was with Orion in the backyard and climbing the stairs.

    We will do that!!! Stop the walks and play with Cooper...She does get a good workout playing with him...He usually gets her on her back and she is such a chunk she is making fatty noises and can barely get rolled back over ........... I will make her tot stew Thanks You!!!! My mom was like I am not cooking food for her....she hates cooking period, my step dad rarely gets fed
