Obese Dog Throws HUGE PARTY for Reaching Weight Loss Goals | The Dodo Party Animals

When I first got Lu-Seal she was so fat that she could barely walk. She weighed 16 pounds. And they essentially told me
she had to lose half her body weight in order to be a healthy dog.
But she’s still smiling. She just grinned back at me the entire time and I adopted her that day. They made me meet with a vet before I could take her home to talk about getting her healthy again. It was a slow journey. We put her on a strict diet. -What time is it, Lucy? Is it dinner time? 250 calories a day, and exercise her as much
as she could really tolerate. At first, couldn’t make it
more than two houses down the block without sitting down. But we’d sort of just try to convince her to walk a little bit further. Wait for her to cool off a little bit, let her try again. Oh, yeah. You know what to do now. The first day she did stairs
was a real milestone for us. There we go. And as the pounds fell off,
she just got more and more active. And it’s just been incredible. She’s gone from being a sort of couch potato, didn’t want to get up and move,
football-shaped creature, to a dog that actually looks like a chihuahua, acts like a chihuahua. And in the end, she has lost
a total of eight pounds. I had talked to my friends
about maybe throwing, like, a low-key event just to celebrate once she hit her goal weight. And a couple of them sort of suggested, “Well, why don’t you make it like a thing?” So then it kind of snowballed out of control. We’ve been planning this party for months. I’m really excited that we’re finally here. It’s finally happening. I totally think that Lu-Seal recognizes something’s
going on right now. But she always thinks it’s
all about her. So. -This party’s for you. -One of the biggest things we’re doing
is weight checks. We have a vet here, and they’re
gonna weigh pets to help other pet owners know whether or not their pet is overweight. It’s harder to tell a lot of the time,
than you’d think. There’s also a food truck,
there are some vendors. And of course, there’s beer. -Hey, Lu-Seal. Your biggest fan. It’s amazing how much
she inspires other people. As well as me. – We’re so happy Lu-Seal could get the pounds off. It encourages me to lose some weight. – I get messages on Instagram every day from people that say she’s their fitspiration. And that she inspires them to go to the gym to get healthier
and lose weight themselves. She has quite the fan base. I think she’s really making
some changes for her fans. You’re on a diet. You’re not allowed
to have all of it. Do you want a piece? Since she’s lost weight, she has become
a little bit more feisty. And I think she’s happier for it. She’s happy that she has the independence
that she didn’t have before. Every time she gets on the scale, she’s gotten happier and happier
and happier. And I think that’s just
’cause I give her treats. But I think maybe partly it’s because
she feels better about herself. I don’t think I knew love
until I met Lu-Seal. The feelings that she gives me are just like I’ve never
experienced before. She’s really made me very happy. It’s been an amazing year. Even though dogs can be older,
they could still learn new tricks. They can still get healthier, and you can still really change their lives. Like we have for Lu-Seal.

  4. Whats up !!!! love watching you guys!! You guys always have good videos. Check us out Home of the XL Pitbull's in HoustonTx WE are Ultra!!!!!

  5. WTH?? Usually animal abuse aligns with the animal not being fed enough, although this is equally tragic. Dogs have no sense of self control and they'll eat until they die from obesity.

  6. I love her! Sheโ€™s just like my dog Tiki
    She is a chihuahua jack Russell mix and when I got her she was 26lbs. Sheโ€™s now a happy perky 16lbs

  7. At 32 seconds in did she say 750 calories a day. I hope that isn't what she said as some people that are trying to loose weight only eat that. Maybe it was 250 she said.

  8. You picked a fine time to lose weight LUseal! 40 lbs and a treat, u picked a fine time to lose weight LUseal……๐Ÿคฃ

  9. My male (neutered) chihuahua currently weights 17 pounds what foods would you recommend? Also congrats! So cute!

  10. 16 pounds.

    My male fat chihuahua is like 35 pounds

    Well that was what it was last time we weighed him ill edit this one I find out XD

  11. I want a dog but I canโ€™t get one yet but if I did I would be scared to make her overweight

  12. My Chi Miss Fern has lost 5 lb so far and has 3 more to go. I found snacks that she loves and there not fatting, I give her lots of raw veggies, she loves carrots, broccoli, peas.she hates green beans and Lima beans. I think its great that you cared enough to help her get her weight down.

  13. The Dodo…..I can't tell the difference between your merle chihuahua to mine. They look the same when yours was obese at one time. Currently mine is obese and can you tell me what you feed her and how much, how many times a day, aside from her exercises. Mine looks exactly like yours. Pls. reply. Thanks..

  14. Great job! God bless you! If anyone is facing similar challenge, I recommend monitored swimming as exercise…its 0 impact on their joints.
