PORTLAND, Oregon -- It's a different kind of dog treat. Forget the Beggin’ Strips, Obie the dachshund is being honored with a calendar-spread instead.

The previously pudgy pooch became famous back in 2012. He was 77 pounds and you could hear his belly dragging when he walked. Lovingly, elderly owners had been feeding him human food. But when veterinarian tech Nora Vanatta took custody over a year ago, things started turning around.

A strict dry food diet and one tummy-tuck later, Obie is now 40 pounds lighter and he’s being featured in a 2015 calendar that sells for $25!

Because who doesn't love looking at a wiener with some nice buns.
