Two years ago, Obie the wiener dog weighed 77 pounds.  Today he tips the scales at 23 pounds.

On Tuesday, Obie’s owner Nora Vanatta stopped by “LIVE with Kelly and Michael,” to show off her dog’s incredible weight loss, that she contributes to mostly just diet changes.

“I think he ate only people food prior, and I put him on a specially-formulated doggy diet,” Vanatta told Michael Strahan and guest host Beth Behrs. “He wasn’t able to move much at all until he got down to about 35 pounds, so after eight months he was able to go for real walks.”
