Five months ago - this stuffed pillow look-alike arrived in my life, weighing more than double his recommended healthy weight.
Today, he is slimmer and much of his fat has been replaced by muscle; still some way to go but he is very much livelier and energetic.
He is also very stubborn and no amount of calling his name, clucking, whistling, whining or whispering would persuade him to lift his head and smile for the camera!
Plodding along in a sedate fashion, back in May 2017.
Yesterday, looking for his doggy mates up on the Moor - note the bigger clearance between belly and ground!
Happy boy, loving his walks.
Flying along, ears flapping and a big grin on his face.
Apologies for the out-of-focus photo - he was really racing along.
