The Dog Diet will captivate readers from page one, where they'll meet Patti Lawson, a diet-obsessed, single lawyer who, mourning the demise of her latest relationship, indulges in as many brands of chocolate as she can find. Fate--and a fortuitous trip to PETsMART--brings rascally puppy Sadie into Patti's petless, pristine--if a bit sterile--life. Since that day life hasn't been the same for Patti--or for Sadie. Through a charming and captivating narrative, this memoir-cum-diet book takes a tongue-in-cheek look at our obsession with weight loss and will have readers laughing at themselves as they recognize their own dysfunctional relationship with food. In the process they will learn a simple and natural method for shedding unwanted pounds without the usual stress and disappointments that go along with typical dieting regimens. Some practical dog diet tips include: When it comes to snacking, if your dog likes it, it's probably not good for you! Eat quiet foods that don't emit enticing aromas - they're good for you and won't arouse the ravished beast in your dog! Sure you can walk your dog, but a traditional work out can be adapted to include your dog--you burn more calories and it's a lot more fun! Look at life through the eyes of your dog: learn how to live in the moment and don't hold grudges. The Dog Diet shows how man's best friend truly lives up to his name by helping us lose unwanted weight and rediscover the daily joys that a simplified life can bring.
