Ellie Harrison met Barbara Walton and Sandy, her overweight labrador. They're taking part in the charity People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA's) 100 day pet slimming contest.
The PDSA claim that one in three UK dogs are overweight. The charity has said that the growing number of owners who overfeed their animals could be guilty of "killing their pets with kindness".
The charity recommends a vet-designed strict diet and exercise plan for fat pets, to help them slim down to a healthier weight which will improve their life expectancy.
