Default what dog did you lose?

I was applying a dry rub on my pork roast the other morning. I was shocked by the heaviness of the dish when I put it back in the fridge. It hit me that the thing weighed 21 lbs. I was thinking "Dang that thing was heavy." Then it hit me that I had lost twice that amount and plus some. From there I started going back to all the dogs we previously owned and I asked my dh what the weight was on a shephard mix dog we had years ago. He said he was around 55-60 lbs. I was to think that I lost that much weight to equal a dog. I mean we can go by tires or whatever but when its up against a living walking life form it's more awe inspiring. LOL!!
Just a thought.
Highest: 184
weight lost since my journey began 2009 ( per 5 lbs):

In my previous life I was a Veterinary Technician and used to think of my weight loss in dogs all of the time. Weird but true! At the vet clinic I worked at I had to lift dogs up on to a waist high exam table. It was great when I realized I had lost the equvalent of a black lab. But dogs have a way of coming back home and unfortunately I found him again

Only a chihuahua so far (this time), but I have my Australian Shepherd x 2 to lose, and that's a pretty scary thought!

I've lost a little more then my siberian huskey cross, Kelly. Her picture is in the pets section if you would like to see. I will eventually lose almost as much as my bc crosses Chase and Snoop.

Put together my husband and I have lost about the same amount as his daughter weighs.

When choosing between two evils, I always like to pick the one I haven't tried before.

Hmm... wow that means I've lost more than my keeshond!

And I easily lose more than my pudgy hedgehog with just a good weigh-in, lol!

Ha! I never would have thought of it, but I've lost the equivalent of my largest dog -- a 75lb german shepard! I can't really pick her up easily and to think that I was carrying that around all the time! Great reminder!

I have guinea pigs and I think about how many pigs I have lost. I have lost about 25. I don't know where those 25 pigs would have fit on my body. They would be very squirmy.
