Smile Leila's diet starts now!

Ok so I am starting her diet today!! It's gonna be tough but I know she will be much better off for it.
So since she already ate 1/8 c. totw this morning, I am going to give her the suggested *by kristi* 1/8c. green beans, and 8 kibbles, and i'll think i'll add some water to it also.
This morning i weighed her the best I can and that is me holding her on our scales and then without her. This a.m. it said the difference was 6 1/2 lbs.
Here goes.............. wish us luck!!

Good for you! Her knees and joints will thank you and she will be slim and trim in no time! My mother in laws sheltie lost a ton of weight on the green bean diet and since it has lots of fiber, she wasn't hungry either. Good luck!

Honestly dogs don't notice it like a human would, are you aware dogs can go for several days with no food with few ill effects?
