Dachshund Bandit sheds 10% of body weight

Bandit the Dachshund took second place in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram‘s pet weight loss competition. Bandit, who now weighs 21.9 pounds, lives in a nursing home where everyone used to sneak him treats not to mention midnight snacks of cat food. The Daily Dachshund and Dog News’ previous coverage of the Biggest Loser contest can be found here and here.

And while we’re on the subject of weight, here’s a photo of a completely unrelated Doxie, Link, with his shirtless owner. We wanted to keep up the Daily Doxie tradition of showcasing topless men and their Dachshunds be they famous artists and TV stars or just plain regular guys.
