And that's when Eric met Peety: an overweight, middle-aged, and forgotten dog. The two adopted each other and began an incredible journey together that forever changed their lives.

This is an amazing book! First of all, Eric is so easy to relate to. His terrible life as a fat person is heart breaking. But the transformation, through his relationship with canine Peeti and adopting a plant-based diet, is phenomenal. On so many levels, this is a fantastic book! Thank you Eric and Peeti.

Inspiring. The very overweight author with multiple health problems takes the advice of a doctor to become vegan and get a dog for forced exercise. This is not the solution for everyone but for this man it worked. I enjoyed his weight loss journey and how adopting a dog became a good source of exercise (for man and dog) not to mention the human to animal bonding that took place. This is also a good book for the person who is starting at square one to change to a healthier diet. If this guy did it, anyone can.
