Eric O'Grey - Walking with Peety (Corte Madera)

In partnership with Marin Humane

Eric O'Grey was 150 pounds overweight, depressed, and sick. After a lifetime of failed diet attempts, and the onset of type 2 diabetes due to his weight, Eric went to a new doctor, who surprisingly prescribed a shelter dog. And that's when Eric met Peety: an overweight, middle-aged, and forgotten dog who, like Eric, had seen better days. The two adopted each other and began an incredible journey together, forming a bond of unconditional love that forever changed their lives. Over the next year, just by going on walks, playing together, and eating plant-based foods, Eric lost 150 pounds, and Peety lost 25. As a result, Eric reversed his diabetes, got off all medication, and became happy and healthy for the first time in his life -- eventually reconnecting with and marrying his high school sweetheart. Walking with Peety is for anyone who is ready to make a change in his or her life, and for everyone who knows the joy, love, and hope that dogs can bring. This is more than a tale of mutual rescue. This is an epic story of friendship and strength.

Eric O'Grey is an inspirational speaker with a bachelor of science degree in finance from San Jose State University and a Juris Doctor degree from Emory University. Eric enjoys long distance running with his dog Jake, gourmet plant-based cooking, and spending time with his wife, Jaye. He is passionate about animal kindness, plant-based nutrition, and helping others reverse obesity, type 2 diabetes, and achieve their optimal weight and happiness.
