Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Thanks everyone!
I don't think we'll hit our goal at the end of August, but as long as he doesn't gain weight, we're OK.

Storm is blushing now....He's been running with hubby late evenings now when it's cooled off some. He's a slow poke, but he's running (instead of waddling)!

OMG the change is amazing! Storm looks little compared to his former self! You've done an amazing job helping him lose the weight, he's a very lucky boy to have you guys. Even if you don't hit your original goal by the end of August the more important thing is realizing how far you guys actually have come and it has all been in the right direction. You're getting so close, Storm's cheerleaders on the forum are still routing him on. Absolutely amazing how good he looks! I love you

Storm absolutely looks amazing! Every time I come see him, I can tell that he has lost a few more pounds! I remember when JD and I pulled up to the park at the fairgrounds and went, "oh, I wonder who that dog is? I see Ginger..." and didn't realize it was Storm because he was looking so slender! He is a stud muffin for sure and looks so good! And he his energy has to have improved so much.. he kept up with Rogue like a puppy himself! I love you Storm, so happy you have great parents who are ensuring you are as healthy as possible!


And HOLY MOLY, don't think I ever have seen a comparison of Seamus!! Look at that figure! A whole 20lbs! He didn't take long to slim out either did he?

Took about 4-5 months to get most of it off. He had heartworms so getting his weight down was really important, we didn't want any added stress on his heart. After the HW treatment he lost about 10lbs more and then gained half of that back in muscle. His back legs are a serious power house!

Lookin' good, Storm! Good job, Claudia! I'm sure he feels alot more comfortable! Chili always looked so uncomfortable when he was tubby!

Claudia, as promised, some more pics of fat Chili so that you can compare their build. These pics are of Chili on his first day with us - he very quickly lost the extra weight within 2 weeks with three walks a day (about 2 - 2 1/2 hrs of walking/running) and 2 1/2 cups a day of kibble - Solid Gold -upgraded since then!) He was only at the rescue a few days, and fostered at the home who found him prior to that for 2 weeks. Chili certainly did NOT look like the stray he was, unless he was hanging around McDonald's! Laughing

Chili was 76 lbs in these pics. He gained muscle and slimmed down alot, and has been around 73-79 lbs since then. He was 79.2 lbs 7 weeks ago when we got Frosti. Just went to the vet yesterday and he was back down to 74 lbs (Frosti was still 49 - I used her to doublecheck the scale accuracy), since we've been giving him less treats (working on him not getting jealous and snapping when Frosti gets treats too).

We adopted him during a heat wave, so hubby stayed home the first week to watch him. He fell asleep in his water bowl!


Look! No waist! Laughing Round butt!


Crappy cell phone pic - but you can see the rolls around his shoulders!

I think Chili and Storm have similar builds! I think Storm will be about an 85 lb husky....

Awesome, not much farther to go! Smile

I just measured his length to give you a better idea - I measured from the middle of his shoulder blades to the start of his tail (top of butt) - and it's 26". Mannn, it's so hard to measure huskies, he kept moving or wanting to lie down. hehe
