Eric was in trouble.  He was obese, withdrawn, and had lots of medical issues.  His weight had ballooned to 320 pounds and he was taking medications for high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol.

His doctor told him to buy a funeral plot because he had less than five years to live.  He was only 51 years old at the time.

Something happened the spurred Eric into action.  He was on a business trip, and the plane was delayed because they couldn’t find a seat belt extension big enough for him.

When the passenger next to him on the plane looked at him in disgust and said, “I’m going to miss my connection because you’re too fat,” it made Eric hit rock bottom.

Eric got into action and found a nutritionist near him, knowing he needed help to change his life.  The first thing the nutritionist told him was to get a dog.  It would force him to get outside and moving.

So Eric went to the Humane Society Silicon Valley and requested an overweight, middle-aged dog, so they would have something in common.

That’s when Eric adopted Peety.
