When a busy mom is faced with an empty nest, she turns to her rescue dog, Kelly – and food. But Kelly soon becomes the motivating factor to facing down her physical and emotional reasons for overeating, and for overfeeding her dog. Together they discover that everything’s easier with unconditional love.
This book is for anyone who has ever loved a pet – through thick and thin.


The veterinarian rubbed Kelly’s sides for emphasis. “She needs to lose weight. If not ...” Peggy Frezon recognized the list of serious ailments that followed. It was the same one her own doctor had given her.
Dieting With My Dog is the honest and heartfelt story of how one overweight woman and her chubby spaniel struggled to get fit and healthy together. Theirs was a comfortable routine. While Frezon’s children were flying the nest, her loyal rescue pup snuggled close. Sneaking M&Ms from her secret stash, she would slip Kelly extra doggy cookies too. Why not? Food is love. But then, Kelly became the motivating factor that led Frezon to face down the physical and emotional reasons for her overeating, and for overfeeding her dog. She learned that embracing change is healthy, and everything is easier with unconditional love.
Join Frezon and Kelly on their journey to weight loss with a wag. Dieting With My Dog celebrates our close bonds with our pets in times of both need and triumph. This book is for anyone who has ever loved a pet – through thick and thin.

Independent Reviews

We think this book would appeal to anyone who has loved a dog ... It is for anyone who has challenging relationship with food – using it for comfort and to stave off boredom, for those who have battled with weight all their lives, or anyone who suddenly finds, after years of not having to think about their body, that they are suddenly piling on the fat. It is also for anyone who is facing that challenging time in their parenthood when their children are beginning to look outwards from the family; a time of accomplishment but also of loss. Perhaps doctors should prescribe a loving dog to all those going through this!

Julie Klam, bestselling author of You Had Me at Woof: How Dogs Taught Me the Secrets of Happiness

It only took my reading the first page of Peggy Frezon’s book, Dieting with My Dog, and I was hooked! As someone who has dealt with the challenges of weight gain and weight loss all of my life, I was inspired by Peggy’s heart-warming story of her journey to make a positive change in her life with the help of her beloved dog, Kelly. Peggy blends humor, candor, and practicality in a wonderful way.

A quirky and engaging tale of one woman's uncommon solution to a common problem. A moving and instructive celebration of the bond between humans and animals.

Your dog cannot tell you he is unhappy or overweight, and he relies on you to keep him healthy. This book is an excellent way to keep the both of you in nice shape; most importantly, by doing it together.
Joel Silverman, author of What Color Is Your Dog, Host of Animal Planet's “Good Dog U.”,
Dieting with My Dog presents delightful incentives to improve health for people and their canine companions. With the book’s rare combination of humor, practicality, and inspiration, readers will become motivated to lose weight and gain a special bond with their dog.

Everyone who has ridden the emotional rollercoaster of weight gain and loss, and struggled with the necessary lifestyle changes, will relate to Peggy’s battle and eventual triumph over food’s controlling grip. Her faithful dog is both an ally and a benefactor of the author’s successful journey.
