    In one month she will be 15 years old and that, along with the before and after thread, told me I need to share some photos of my best girl.

    This was my first photo of the Cow.

    Obese, old, and unhappy.

    however, still spirited.

    Starting to jump, not just slide

    She couldn't handle the heat for a long time

    But she's always been adorable

    Omg, I didn't know she underwent such a transformation in your care. That old lady lucked out big time! Also can't believe how amazing she looks at 15!

    She did, she lost 35 lbs. She was about 75 lbs and is 40 lbs now.

    I took her in without a clue of how important she would be nor how long she would last. She's acting older lately but still has some spunk to share.

    She introduced me to flyball (she was an obsessive fetcher, not so much anymore) and dock dogs. :)

    She's a pretty spectacular bulldog.

    Oh my goodness, she was HUGE! How long did it take her to get down to what she is now?

    I love her so much. She reminds me of Shadow.

    It has to be because I am flat out exhausted and the flu is making me lose all sense, but when I saw those first pictures I was like "Wow.... Adrianne keeps her dogs incredibly overweight" and then I saw the other photos and was like... "I don't understand. What sorcery is this?"

    About 10 minutes later I figured it out. She looks fantastic now, and I will just go to sleep and hopefully I will get my brain back soon.

    Wow, she was amazingly overweight! I'm so glad you got her and let her be a dog again. :)

    Holy crap. You probably added YEARS to her life with that weight loss.

    OMG I despise people that keep their dogs that fat. Terrible. You did a wonderful thing there. I had no idea she was that old.

    Yes, here too!

    Shamoo, along with her story and the obvious love and respect you have for her, has become one of my favorites. I am so impressed with her transformation. I know how lucky you must feel to have her in your life, and I bet she feels three times as lucky.

    Hurray for a happy active Moo :) You two are a great inspiration for the joys in adopting older dogs. I hope my crew is as happy and active at 15 as The Moo.

    Also I don't think I'd ever seen pictures from right when you adopted her...I can see why you called her the cow lol...poor girl!

    What a lucky dog Moo is! You definitely need to do a side-by-side comparison and share it on Facebook! ;)

    Happy Almost Birthday Shamoo!
