WALKING WITH PEETY
By Eric O'Grey
Eric was 150 pounds overweight, sick and on 15 different medications, including daily insulin injections for type-2 diabetes. After a lifetime of failed diet attempts, Eric went to a new doctor, who surprisingly
prescribed a shelter dog. And that's when Eric met Peety: an obese, middle- aged dog who, like Eric, had seen better days. The two adopted each other and began an incredible journey together, forming a bond of brotherhood and unconditional love that forever changed their lives. Over the next year, just by going on walks, playing together, and eating a plant based diet, Eric lost 150 pounds, and Peety lost 25.
