Charlie has been on a diet for about a week now.
We have changed his food from Iams to Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance Ultra Premium. (They really need to shorten that name)
Anyway, Charlie was a little upset at first with the reduced servings (barking, early in the morning for some food), but he has adjusted and has gotten back to his normal routine.
We are hoping that his waist returns sometime in late spring.
