    When Mandy was a sausage I put 1/2 c frozen green beans in place of kibble, and the weight literally fell off her.

    Sorry that won't help Dudley but maybe he will start to like them if he has no other alternative? But I bet Tate and Finn will go for it

    Oh NO Henny... I agree w/everyone that the treats would be the first culprit. I would say if you could incorporate more exercise in... I'm trying to do at least 30 min twice a day for Winston. I can walk my boxer Roxie forever, but Winston obviously can't do it so I'm trying shorter session w/him. Winston is 10 months now, and weighs 56 pounds already Bella was overweight as well, and it was so hard to get the weight off of her... Good Luck

    My boys are so deprived compared to Tate and Finn. They RARELY get extra treats and only get their kibble. M-F they do get a little piece of my husband's peanut butter toast but that's about all the "extra's" they get. My poor deprived bullies. Oliver weighs in at 62#, Remy 63#, and Sebastian 40#. I'm not gonna let them know about all the goodies Tate and Finn or they will be packing their bags and going to live with Aunt Henny (@Calibaker)

    @cali baker

    Here is the before and after of Vegas.

    The before: -img_0331-jpg-img_0332-2-jpg

    The after: -img_0178-jpg-img_7253-jpg

    Vegas was almost 70 pounds at his heaviest. He was limping and just not getting around very well. We cut him down to 1/2 cup kibble in the morning and 1/2 cup kibble in the evening. We took out ALL treats and gave him frozen green beans. Vegas loves green beans. They are his absolute favorite. We gave him as much of the stew as he wanted. Sometime 2 cups. It all just filler stuff that makes them feel full longer. The pounds came off and years later......they are still off. Vegas went from 69 pounds down to 49 pounds (at his lowest) back up to 54 pounds. That is where he is at now. No more limping either.

    I need to start baby O on the diet again. Although everyone agrees she needs to be heavier than 34 pounds, yesterday she weighed in at 40 pounds. She needs to trim down just a tad.

    Thanks for all the great advice!

    Today was day #2 of cutting back on snacks and no dessert again. I think i'm the one that notices the "deprivation" more than they do! I am going to definitely increase the veggies in their food; i cook for them already so that Vegas Stew will be something I'm going to prepare for them this week. It's interesting to observe how all the snacks i used to give them was just done out of habit. Today my cousin presented the boys with a box of beautifully decorated, frosted cookies that she got from Petco. I normally would have given them one each but this time they will just be used as decoration.

    Ohhhh Tate, you were a chubby wubba last weekend when I saw you. Measure their food Henny and if you must give them treat, make it a piece of their kibble. You already exercise them so it's portion control. I buy the little doggie bone treat and even those I break in half. They don't care what size it is, they just want something so I make sure it's small. Finn didn't look too bad to me. That's the same weight as Wilson, 59.0. Wilson's been hanging on to that weight consistently for months now. Mine all stay the same weight really but it's due to measuring their food and no extra sneakies of goodies.

    Tate's a taller and bigger boy too so I could see him easily around the 63-65 weight range.
