We chronicled the story of Obie the Obese Dachshund here on The Daily Weekly since news of his enormousness first broke. And there's no doubt the story has struck a cord with readers, dog-lovers and fat-sympathizers alike. After making headlines in August thanks to the fact he weighed an astonishing 77 pounds - resulting in a rescue from his elderly, local owners and a move to Portland - Obie was placed on a strict weight-loss regimen.

Recently Obie's throngs of fans got some more good news: the (formerly) obese Dachshund is down to a svelte 40 pounds.

According to KING 5:

He was 77 pounds in August, by February he had lost 37 pounds. His website says he will be having surgery soon to remove all of that extra skin.

The story of Obie received national attention in August when the dog's owners in Puyallup relinquished him.

Way to go, Obie!
