I've been told that I have a weight problem. I'm not sure what the problem is, since I see lots of people and other dogs who weigh too much. When my foster family met me in April, I weighed 27 pounds. I didn't think that this sounded like much, but on my tippy-toes, I only stand at 12 inches tall. I am a chihuahua and dachshund mix, so that means I should be very small. Right now I'm shaped like a bean bag, but I should be a long rectangle. If I can't get my weight down, I might break my back. My foster mom was helping me eat right and exercise. My new family is giving me green beans instead of dog biscuits. They taste great since they were cooked in beef broth. Sophie likes the green beans, too. I'm not sure about Sophie yet. She sleeps a lot. So far I'm doing great with my weight and I only weigh 18 pounds now.
