Our challenge to pet owners: help your pet slim down and get fit along with Doug Speirs' dog Zoe.
Midas, a 12-year-old terrier/ border cross, once weighed in at 102 lbs., then lost 16 lbs. with the help of owner JoAnne Sexsmith who replaced his usual treats with mini carrots. Midas has gained a bit of weight lately, due mainly to the cold weather and a touch of arthritis, and now weighs 90 lbs. His target weight is in the 75 to 80-lb. range. Midas' family will be joining him on his diet for January and February.
